Recently, attorney Gabriel Sepulveda-Sanchez appeared on Court TV to discuss the ongoing case of the murder of two young girls, Abigail Williams and Liberty German, in a small town in Delphi, Indiana, where Richard Allen, the only currently known suspect, appeared in Court for a very important hearing where no cameras were allowed but the people outside expressed their anger and wish for Aleen to be sentenced to life in prison.
While the Judge will hear arguments about the trial date during the bail hearing set for February 17th, Attorneys will still need to find impartial jurors, which, given the small population of the town, means they’ll have to agree on a County from where they can bring them.
Speculations point to the possibility of another person being involved, and so, to avoid alerting the suspect or jeopardizing an ongoing investigation, law enforcement hasn’t released most of the information regarding the case and the deaths of the girls, though the chief of police did refer during a press conference that they would carefully investigate if any other person or persons were involved in the murders.
While Allen admitted to being on the scene of the crime and to having a gun, there’s still the possibility he might be covering for someone else, so releasing all the evidence and facts could tip the suspect off and endanger the investigation.
That tragic February 13th when the girls died, started with one of their sisters dropping them off at the bridge where they planned on spending the day trekking and playing and ended with their bodies being found in the snow the next day.
In the end, all we know for sure is that Aleen was there, he had a gun, but only his defense knows the details of why he was arrested and the probable cause that led to it.
