Welcome back to the Delphi Murders discussion thread.

On the afternoon of Feb. 13th, 2017, best friends Abigail Williams and Liberty German were dropped off at a bridge in the town of Delphi. On Feb 14th their bodies were discovered around noon about 50 feet from the north bank of Deer Creek which is about 0.5 miles from the bridge.

A consolidation of ADMIN & MOD notes:

- Theorizing based on some known fact sourced from MSM or LE is fine, but speculation not based on known fact is not allowed.

- It is WS preferred policy to use initials only for anyone other than victims or perps.

- If you have questions about rules or moderation, please do not ask them on the thread. Just private message a Mod or Admin for clarification.

- Rumors are not allowed. If you can't link information to Websleuths approved sources, do NOT post it with "I read it somewhere" or "I'll find the link later ...".


- Sleuthing or discussing RSOs just because they are on the registry is not allowed. A thread specific exception may be made by Tricia or an Admin depending on geographical location in relation a crime.

- Photo alterations or side-by-side comparisons of unrelated pictures are not allowed.
_________________________
FAMILY MEMBERS of the victims or the suspect - what is OFF LIMITS?
Sleuthing and posting their personal information, including names, addresses, and background data, even if it is public, is not allowed and such posts will be removed, along with any posts that encourage such sleuthing. This also includes social media pages such as FB, LinkedIn, TikTok, Instagram etc.


However, statements made BY or ABOUT family members that are in MSM as facts of the case being reported may be reasonably discussed. The topic must still comply with the WS TOS.

DO NOT make random accusations about family members.
DO NOT make insinuations, suggest their involvement, trash, bash or attack them, or speculate negatively about family members or ANYone who has not been named as a suspect or POI.

________________________
- Please do not criticize or speculate negatively about the general population of Delphi.

- Speculation about RS’s possible involvement in other cases belongs in the OTHER CASES’ threads.

MOD NOTE:

There has been a major cleanup on this thread tonight due to numerous TOS violations. Here are the RULES we all agreed to upon joining this site.

We have a thread dedicated to KAK HERE. If you have an update specific to any of his current charges, pending charges or news, it is to be posted on that thread. For example, dismissals, court appearances, etc.

This is an example of an article and subject matter that may be brought up for discussion on this thread. This pertains to KAK and Abby’s and Libby’s cases. Although sources such as this are approved, you personally have the right to decide how much credibility you give to them. Nevertheless, they remain approved sources here on Websleuths.

Regardless of what is posted in ANY approved source, RA’s family (to include photos) are completely off limits as of this post. They are victims. PERIOD.

If you’re going to reference or discuss a topic (even if it’s been brought up before), a link to an approved source must be provided. Otherwise, don’t mention it.

Decisions made by officials may not sit well with us, but they’re most often made for a reason.

And lastly, STAY ON TOPIC. Please and THANK YOU!

ADMIN NOTE:

ADMIN NOTE:

Sorry folks, but statement analysis, body language analysis, amateur handwriting analysis is not allowed unless sourced to a credentialed, forensic specialist involved in the case under discussion.

This discussion is dedicated to Abby and Libby. Posts that do not relate directly to their case are off topic and such posts get removed. If you wish to discuss personal matters, please do so with your WS friends through PM or in the basement.

Also, the presumption of innocence is part and parcel of the judicial process. It does not apply to the general public who are entitled to express their opinion. Members are not here to be lectured or chastised by others for expressing their personal opinions. If you have an issue, use the Report feature and let Mods or Admins determine what is or is not okay to post.

Thanks.

I think the evidence they have is:

1. RA was in the area when the crime took place
2. He has some item of the victims in his posession
3. He lied to the police about something during his first interview and they caught it

With these evidence, they cannot prove he was the one who killed them, so intentional homicide is ruled out which is why they are charging him with felony murder because they have enough evidence to prove he was somehow involved in the crime

I am not going to state this as fact because I don’t want to go searching for links. This is a repeat of what I understood from posts from some of our resident lawyers. This is my OPINION. In Indiana, it is just Murder, though with different counts. There is no “Felony Murder”. The definition of what you are calling felony murder is Murder 2 in Indiana, this includes Murder with an aggravating factor (which they have, kidnapping, and maybe sexual assault). It does not mean that they do not have the evidence to charge him with Murder 1. I believe that it is a much easier case to prove murder with an aggravating factor (he is on tape directing them for the kidnap!) than it is to prove premeditated murder which is Murder 1 in Indiana.

Just one tiny addition since we've been over this a lot.

Murder (section 2) or whatever the ( ) is called. Otherwise, someone might decide it's 2nd degree murder and run with *that*.

As far as I have understood (in other words in my opinion only), there is such a statute as "murder while committing a felony"
Call it what you wish, but that's felony murder, and the felony is kidnapping. They were ("Down the hill") transported without their consent from one place to another.
We don't have proof of any other felony, but the kidnapping and ultimate murder.

ETA: IC 35-42-1-1 Murder
Sec. 1. A person who:
(2) kills another human being while committing or attempting to commit arson, burglary, child molesting, consumer product tampering, criminal deviate conduct (under IC 35-42-4-2 before its repeal), kidnapping, rape, robbery, human trafficking, promotion of human trafficking, sexual trafficking of a minor,

Excellent analysis. The name of the defense’s game will be to suppress items of evidence. Let’s hope the Police were professional and observed the rules of evidence.

Carter says "this investigation is far from complete..."

So LE continues to investigate the murders of Abby and Libby. I wonder what "far from complete" means. Probably there is a lot they are investigating yet. I wonder if that includes people.

That statement alone could lead me to think there is so much unknown, not just to the public, but to LE themselves.

Could be their current suspect has tentacles.

I wouldn't be surprised if another arrest came along, other players involved, or possibly other murders tied to RA.

Hi everyone. I stumbled across this case the other day and my mind has been blown since. Now I’m obsessed with knowing every detail. Trying to catch up with all the information from over the years. Bless these poor girls …. Sending love from Scotland

My only hesitation to commit to an association between KAK and RA is that if there was sharing of child *advertiser censored* between the two, via cell phone, laptop or other digital means, investigators would have already established that connection long before the arrest of RA, using whatever means they use to catch people who possess and distribute child *advertiser censored*.

So if they didn’t find a digital connection between the two, what did they find to connect them?

If they did find a digital connection, why the delay in the arrest?

Welcome to the thread. It's been a long, frustrating, and wild ride.

I am totally confused now with KAK even with the extreme amount of smoke and coincidences. But he did hide a phone from the search warrant and delete apps and microwave either that same phone or another and Libby did a factory reset of her phone in the days beforehand......so I think the most damning Delphi evidence was either lost or a real process to restore.

The MS podcast did say KAK confessed that he waited for the killer in his red jeep. So unless he didn't know the real identity (which could be possible) or is a huge liar (also possible) that is a connection even if online was lost. Also he was flown to the ISP in August where he could have talked then.

This article may have been discussed, but is interesting because it already has his reduced number of charges (25 from 30) so perhaps new negotiations related to RA? Kegan Kline trial delayed amid “negotiations” in case
