Indiana man charged with 30 counts of child pornography-related charges suspected of Delphi murders, case update
Two podcast hosts claim that a suspect who is accused of possessing child pornography and who is linked to the murders of two teenage girls in Delphi, Indiana, in 2017 has been asking women who write him in prison for sexual favors. The murders of the two girls took place in 2017.
According to podcast host and attorney Kevin Greenlee, who spoke with Fox News Digital about the matter, the defendant “in addition to demanding money, women have been contacting him, and he is trying to exploit them sexually in order to provide them information about the case.” “There was a particularly stunning discussion in which a… young woman was asking about the case and talking about church, and he responded very fast by turning it into a sexual chat,” the author writes. “This exchange was particularly striking because it was a sexual discourse.”
Kegan Kline, age 27, is now being held in custody in Miami County, Indiana, on thirty counts of accusations linked to child pornography. These charges date back to the years 2016 and 2017. According to FOX 59 Indianapolis, he was linked to the killings in Delphi after it was reported that he had been in communication with one of the victims, Libby German, the night before she was slain. German was 14 years old at the time of her death.
After German’s sister had dropped the duo off at the beginning of a hiking trail the day before, the bodies of German and Abigail Williams, both 13 years old, were discovered on the morning of February 13, 2017, having been murdered.
Kline has denied that he had anything to do with the deaths of the girls and has not been charged in connection with the investigation into the Delphi case. According to the allegations, Kline had plans to meet up with German at the bridge where her body was found the next day.
Kline was recently able to communicate with Greenlee and journalist ine Cain, who host the podcast “The Murder Sheet” and have been following the Delphi murder case, via a messaging platform that Kline can use to communicate with others outside of prison. Greenlee and Cain have been following the Delphi murder case.
One of the women who emailed Kline said to the hosts of the podcast that the suspect had made her an offer to receive information in exchange for allowing him to masturbate in front of her while they were communicating on FaceTime. In addition to this, it has been reported that he attempted to get the adult women who have contacted him in prison to perform sexual favors in exchange for information. Greenlee pointed out in the most recent episode of “The Murder Sheet” podcast that this behavior is particularly disturbing in light of the crimes for which Kline is accused.
In addition, Kline stated on multiple occasions to Cain and Greenlee, the hosts of the podcast, that he would not provide any information without first receiving payment; however, the podcast presenters did not agree to do this in their capacity as journalists.
“Please do not send me any more messages. You have spread a lot of untruthful information about me. Kline addressed this to Cain in a message that she and Greenlee discussed in the most recent edition of their podcast. “I know that you have a podcast and want money from this, but it’s wrong what you’re doing, Aine,” Kline said in the message.
“There is a great deal of inaccurate information. People who have never met me, Aine, are giving interviews and lying about me without even knowing it. That makes me really angry and frustrated. Another communication from Kline stated, “I’m having a hard enough time as it is.”
“How many questions do you plan on asking? I will respond to some of them, but not for free. Another message from Kline contradicts what the hosts of the show have been informed by their sources, which is that Kline has gained a large amount of weight while incarcerated. Kline added that he is “sitting in here hungry with nothing” while everyone else is making money off his reputation.
The hosts of the show had done significant reporting on the Delphi killings and Kline, and they wanted to make contact with the suspect so that he may have the opportunity to tell his side of the story. When Cain and Greenlee asked Kline what they got wrong in their reporting, he avoided the subject and stated he would only provide answers in return for $400. Cain and Greenlee were frustrated because Kline did not directly answer their question.
Cain provided an explanation by saying, “I would consider our chat with Kegan Kline as quite brief.” “… He voiced his disagreement with some of the reporting that we had done on him. We inquired of him for further elaboration. He didn’t supply it. The most important thing that we took away from it was that he wants people to pay him to question them about the Delphi case.
Documents from the court system in Indiana that Cain and Greenlee got in May and August point to potential new developments in the case involving Kline as well.
Cain and Greenlee recently received a tip that led them to the Wabash River in Peru, Indiana, on August 23, where they witnessed and photographed authorities searching the water with a variety of tools. This was not far from Kline’s home, which had been searched in 2017 after the Delphi murders. Cain and Greenlee were led to this location by an anonymous tip.
The Indiana State Police filed a petition with the Miami County Circuit Court on August 19 requesting that Kline be taken into custody; however, he is still in the county at this time.
Cain and Greenlee were able to acquire a transcript from the year 2020 of an ISP interview with Kline that had been inadvertently released online in March.
Kline informed the police that he communicated with German on the day that she was murdered, according to the transcript, which has since been sealed in the court record and cannot be seen. In addition, the transcript disclosed that Kline conducted a search on his computer titled “How long does DNA last,” but he was unable to pass a polygraph test.
During its investigation into the murders, ISP revealed in a post it made on Facebook in December 2021 that it had found a phony Instagram account with the alias “Anthony Shots.” According to the transcript, Kline had access to the account, which was the one that had been communicating with German. However, according to the paper, Kline admitted to the investigators that he had shared the password for the account with “a lot of people.”
According to a post made by the Indiana State Police Department on Facebook, “This profile was being used from 2016 to 2017 on social media applications, including but not limited to Snapchat and Instagram.” “The bogus anthony shots profile depicted himself as being immensely affluent and as the owner of a number of different sports automobiles. The profile also featured photographs of a well-known male model. This information was used by the person who created the bogus profile when they were chatting with young ladies in order to solicit nude photographs, obtain their addresses, and attempt to meet them. You can see pictures of the known male model and pictures that were sent to underage girls from the phony anthony shots profile below.
A short time before she and Williams were killed on February 13, 2017, according to the police, German allegedly used her iPhone to take pictures of a man who was walking across a train bridge. A man who is thought to be the murderer was seen on German surveillance video ordering the buddies “down the hill.”
Anyone who believes they may have information regarding the Instagram profile or anything else related to the investigation is urged to get in touch with law enforcement at [email protected] or by calling 765-822-3535.
