A mother’s words  –   Libby German’s mom sent WTHR  a statement this week about the charging of Richard M Allen in the murders of Abby & Libby in Delphi, Indiana.  “…Over the next few weeks, months and maybe even years, the story will finally be told. Justice will finally be served.”  “Please keep in mind that we have a justice system for a reason…I also want to thank all of the reporters, podcasters and other news and social media outlets for keeping our girls’ story relevant and in the public eye. While sometimes it’s been painful, I am grateful for you all…”
