An arrest has been announced in the 2017 murders of Abby Williams and Libby German, tenneagers whose bodies were found near the Monon Trail near Delphi. Authorities announced Monday that Richard Allen, 50, of Delphi has been charged with murder.

Allen is being held without bond.

The murders occurred nearly six years ago and since then Indiana State Police have issued a composite sketch and a revised sketch which looked nothing like the first.

They also released the now infamous “Down the hill” audio, which was recorded on Libby German’s phone in the moments before the killings.

“While you are all expecting final details…today is not the day,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter. “The time will come when additional details can be released. But, again, today is not that day.”

He said that police would continue to look into whether anyone else was involved in the murders.

The tip line and tip e-mail is still open, said Carroll County Prosecutor Nick McLeland. He said the probable cause document is sealed and will remain so for now.

A trial date of March 20, 2023, has been set.
