<Statement contained in quote BBM>Summary: They received the statement this morning. Mr. Click (former Rushville Assistant Police Chief, now retired) is being careful of what he is saying because he doesn't want to violate the gag order and plans to speak to his attorney to find out the limits.
Exact quote from Mr. Click as read by the Murder Sheet hosts:
"There are two things that I would like to clear up immediately, though. Detective Ferency and Detective Murphy were not Rushville cops. Detective F was a detective from the Terre Haute police department that was assigned to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. Detective Murphy was an Indiana State police detective that was also assigned to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. So, the FBI was associated with the investigation until at least July 2021. Secondly, no one in law enforcement believes Abby and Libby were killed in a ritual in a ritual sacrifice. That is the defence twisting facts for sensationalism. You can quote me on those two items."
Bumping this forward Clink’s statement read on the MS podcast yesterday in case anyone missed it —- the cracks in the defence memorandum are beginning to appear as Click was the centre piece of the Odinist theory, according to the defence.
If the defence is twisting facts for sensationalism (as I think we already suspected) how can anything they’ve claimed be considered as truthful???
Reference to Click in the document -
Click’s recent statement - “no one in law enforcement believes Abby and Libby were killed in a ritual in a ritual sacrifice.”
Attorneys for accused Delphi murderer Richard Allen are claiming prosecutors hid evidence that the victims were actually killed by members of a pagan white nationalist cult.
“The information that [Click and the other investigators] had gathered during their investigation connected men who practiced Odinism in or near Delphi with another group of men who lived in Rushville and then connected both groups of men to the murders,” the memo states. “Click was concerned that for some reason the leadership of the investigative team had failed to share with [prosecutors] the evidence gathered by [Click and the other investigators]. Click’s concerns led him to seek out a lawyer to assist him in the drafting of a letter.”
Additionally, according to the filing, Click included in his letter to prosecutors “the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI determined that the individual(s) responsible for the homicides were involved in Nordic beliefs.”
“This was news to the Defense as no member of [law enforcement] in charge of the investigation revealed this information to the Defense during recent depositions,” the filing states. Among those who did not reveal the aforementioned information to the defense included at least one investigator who allegedly abandoned the theory without sufficient investigation. That investigator then testified during a deposition “that he didn’t remember if the FBI’s BAU unit determined one way or the other whether those with Nordic beliefs had been involved in the murders,” per the filing.
