Indiana State PoliceAttorneys for the 50-year-old father of two named as a suspect in the 2017 murders of two teenage girls in Delphi, Indiana, have released a lengthy statement firing back at the evidence presented by prosecutors earlier this week, saying their client is innocent and remains “confused” over why he has been targeted, adding that he “has nothing to hide.”Obtained and posted by FOX59’s Angela Ganote, the statement from attorneys Brad Rozzi and Andrew Baldwin argues against the evidence prosecutors have cited—saying the unspent .40-caliber round discovered between the bodies of of Delphi teens Libby German and Abby Williams, which investigators say led them to the alleged killer, Richard Matthew Allen, is insufficient to prove he was involved in the murders.“Rick is a 50-year-old man who has never been arrested nor accused of a crime in his entire life,” the statement read. “He is innocent and completely confused as to why he has been charged with these crimes.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
