Delphi Murder Suspect’s Dramatic Change

The Carroll Circuit Court emergency request by the Delphi murder suspect, Richard Matthew Allen’s lawyers alleged Mr. Allen’s condition, including his behavior, appearance, and mental state as a whole, changed in a very big way.

Delphi murder suspect defense team said that he is being treated like a prisoner of war because he sleeps on a pad on the ground and doesn’t get any food, hasn’t seen his wife or family in five months, can only shower once or twice a week, and must wear the same dirty, filthy, ragged, and torn clothes for “days and days on end.”

Since November, the Delphi murder suspect has been in maximum-security Westville Correctional Facility. Allen was arrested on Oct. 28 and charged with murdering Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, on Feb. 13, 2017. Delphi’s Monon High Bridge held their remains. They were homicides, but police haven’t said how. Allen denies guilt.

Cell Block Inspection Access Denied

In the motion, his attorneys stated that Allen could only call family members via a tablet supervised by jail officials. They allege they were denied permission to investigate his cell block and living conditions.

A gag order prevents Indiana Department of Correction spokesperson, Annier Goeller, from commenting on Allen’s attorneys’ assertions.

To protect Allen, Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby requested that he be imprisoned in Indiana. The case’s special judge will hear Allen’s bail request on June 15.
