Delphi murder victim Libby German was almost DECAPITATED by killer, new probe claims – as


A shocking new probe into the Delphi murders has raised doubt over the suspect charged with the brutal double-slaying – and claims Libby German, 14, was ‘almost decapitated’ when she was killed alongside her friend Abby Williams, 13. 

Few details of the girls’ cause of death have been released in the six years since their murders in February 2017, until a new CrimeNation documentary this week included claims Libby was almost beheaded ‘out of rage.’

The admission was seen in texts from someone on the scene that later leaked online, also claiming ‘whoever did it targeted Libby for sure’, and that the 14-year-old ‘fought like hell.’ 

In October 2022, cops made their first major breakthrough with the arrest of Richard Allen, 50.

However, the new documentary instead pointed to a new killer, the man who owned the property where the girls were discovered, Ron Logan, in chilling new claims from his ex-girlfriend.

Logan, who died in January 2022 from Covid-19, was one of the first suspects investigators looked into, and he made several media appearances in the aftermath of the murders as they gained national attention. 

After key pieces of evidence emerged – a picture of the killer and a recording of his voice taken by Libby on her phone – Logan appeared on Inside Edition to claim he didn’t recognize the person or the voice from anyone he’d seen on his property. 

But his ex-girlfriend Connie Dillman has claimed she is in no doubt it was Logan in the clips, and said she insisted to authorities her ex is the killer.

‘That’s your voice,’ she said of Logan. ‘I heard the voice of ‘down the hill’ thousands of times. It’s Ron Logan.’ 

Dillman said she began her six-year relationship with Logan after meeting him in a bar in Delphi, Indiana, and they quickly bonded over their love of horses and the outdoors.

But she said their relationship went downhill before long, as he began controlling her everyday life and treating her like a ‘sex tool.’

‘When I didn’t want to have sex, he forced it on me,’ she said. ‘I was helpless.’ 

She claimed one time that she tried to leave, he struck her across the head with a wrench, leaving her with seven stitches. 

Shortly after ending their relationship, the murders of the two teen girls rocked the Delphi community and made national headlines – leading Dillman to be sure her former lover was the killer when she saw him on TV.

After the murders captured national attention, law enforcement came under fire for not releasing details of the crime, a factor they cited in wanting to keep control over the investigation and not release information only the killer would have known.

Amid the frustration for information, lurid text messages leaked online from someone at the crime scene, which the documentary claimed were shared by Abby’s uncle, David Erskin. 

The text read: ‘Me and my other sisters boyfriend are the ones who found the girls Tuesday. Coroner’s report stated everything was over by 3:30. No rape. Abby was dressed. Libby was nude. 

‘Libby’s top half was covered with leafs and sticks, almost like they were trying to cover her. 

‘The only DNA would be from Libby’s fingernails. She fought like hell. Whoever did it targeted Libby for sure and knew what they were doing with Abby. It was personal with Libby.’ 

An expert in the case added that there was ‘talk of Libby almost being decapitated, which looks like it was done out of rage.’ 

Scrutiny has fallen on the investigation and arrest of Allen following his arrest, particularly due to the evidence produced in Allen’s probable cause affidavit.

In November 2022, the affidavit cited just a single piece of evidence linking Allen to the murders, an unspent shell casing from the scene.

The .40 round was found unfired within two feet of the girls, and analysis of the round found it was a match to Allen’s firearm.

It is unclear how the round would have been cycled into the gun, never fired, then ended up between the two bodies. 

Two weeks later, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that, shortly after Allen’s arrest, one of his neighbors saw police digging in his yard to exhume his family’s dead cat.

The feline’s hair also proved to be a match to samples found on one of the victims.  

The bombshell report also revealed investigators were looking into whether the girls were victims of a botched kidnapping plot by a local pedophile ring. 

Sources close to the investigation claimed that Allen was acting with at least two other men and was involved in a child sex ring, and Carroll County Prosecutor Nicholas McLeland openly stated that he believes ‘Allen is not the only actor involved in this.’
