The widely-followed case known as the Delphi Murders held the nation’s attention over an extended period. It was a chilling narrative that unfolded. Two adolescent girls ventured into a well-frequented Indiana park for a hike, only to meet a tragic end as they were brutally slain. One of the victims managed to record her presumed assailant on video just before her demise. After a span of over five years, law enforcement apprehended an individual they suspect to be responsible for the girls’ deaths. Presently, the attorneys representing the accused have put forth an astonishing defense strategy.
During October of 2022, Richard Allen was apprehended by the Indiana State Police and formally accused of the killings of Abigail Williams, aged 13, and Liberty German, aged 14. Subsequently, a probable cause affidavit disclosed that a firearm owned by the suspect was purportedly linked to a bullet casing discovered at the Delphi Historic Trails crime site. Additionally, investigators have suggested that a vehicle observed at the scene was connected to Allen. He has entered a plea of not guilty in response to these charges.
On September 18, legal representatives Bradley A. Rozzi and Andrew J. Baldwin submitted a comprehensive 136-page memorandum to the court, attributing the homicides of the teenagers to white nationalists. As per the attorneys, they contended that the search warrant executed by law enforcement lacked legality.
Rozzi and Baldwin further asserted that the girls met their tragic end as part of a ritualistic act perpetrated by a group of individuals associated with a cult. They maintained that Allen had no involvement in these murders. According to the lawyers, the actual culprits were members of a pagan Norse faith known as Odinism, which had been co-opted by white nationalists.
Furthermore, they argued that there were wooden objects at the crime scene configured into Germanic letters affiliated with this cult. The attorneys asserted that these alleged wooden pieces served as evidence that the girls perished as part of a ritualistic event.
