Kegan Kline is being held in prison in Miami on unrelated child pornography charges – but he complains of being ‘hungry’ and having ‘struggle’ behind bars

The pedophile suspect in the Delphi murders complains behind bars that he is having “a hard time”, demanding money for interviews and demanding graphic sexual favors from women who write him letters.

Kegan Kline, 28, is in custody for child pornography unrelated to the murders of Abigail Williams, 13, and Libby German, 14, two friends who were murdered in 2017 after riding on a disused train line .

For years the case went unsolved, but investigators are pursuing the theory that the pair were talking with Kline – a known catfish who used photos of a male model to trick young girls into him. meet for sex.

He lived not far from where the girls’ bodies were found in February 2017.

In a flurry of activity this week, Indiana police requested custody of Kline in Miami, where he was being held. They also searched a river near his home.

We don’t know what they were looking for. Police never revealed exactly how the girls died, but a search warrant previously revealed they had lost “large amounts” of blood.

The Murder Sheet podcast this week revealed that Kline is now demanding money for prison interviews and asking women who write to him for sexual favors.

He had asked journalist Aine Caine and attorney Kevin Greenlee, who host the podcast, for $400 in exchange for an hour-long interview about the murders.

He neither denied his involvement nor made any form of confession, and instead complained to them that he was “struggling” and “hungry”.

I have enough trouble. My lawyer advised me not to answer anyone’s questions… but I will answer some – but not for free

In a text message, he told them: “I have enough pain. My lawyer advised me not to answer anyone’s questions.

He then nodded, “How many questions do you want to ask?” I will answer some but not for free. Everybody’s making money off my name and I’m sitting here starving with nothing.

He later demanded “$300 for his commissioner” and an additional $100 to put on his jail cell phone to facilitate texting.

The podcast hosts then revealed that they had heard from women who were in contact with Kline in prison and openly had sex with him.

He asked one of them if she would allow him to FaceTime for her. He made even more explicit comments to another.

Kegan is still being held in Miami for child pornography. He was never charged for the murders of Libby and Abi, which remain unsolved five years later.

Last year, it was revealed he was behind a catfish Instagram account that used the name Anthony Shots, and that Indiana State Police believed Abi and Libby had communicated with the account shortly before their deaths.

Police have always withheld key information about the girls’ deaths in an effort to protect their investigation into the search for the killer.

They never revealed how the girls died, nor the full contents of a video the girls filmed on their phones in the moments before they were killed.

The only detail of this video that has emerged is that the man walking towards them whispered “down the hill” to them as he approached.

Indiana State Police won’t be drawn to what prompted them to search the river for the past two weeks, or when the girls last communicated with Kline.
