Abilene Police Department is reeling from the death of fellow officer, Don Allen, killed in his own home on Monday evening. The case is being treated as a homicide, with various agencies cooperating in conjunction with one another.
A direct quote from a court document related to this case confirms those suspicions, claiming “this homicide does not appear to be a random act. Based on the information provided by eye witnesses and provided by [the investigating detective's] investigation, [the investigating detective] believes this was a premeditated act.”
Another report from Law Enforcement Online explains how this appears to be a premeditated assault between multiple parties.
This ruling isn’t official, but a direct quote from the documents reads, “communication occurred between multiple parties to plan and carry out the murder. [The officer filing the warrant] believes cell towers within the ten mile radius will have captured transaction between the suspects who were involved in this murder.”
