Serial Killer: Howard Arthur Allen

remembering the victimsFrom Howard Allen’s appeal for the Ernestine Griffin murder: Allen murdered 74-year-old Ernestine Griffin in her Indianapolis home. Police determined that Griffin had been killed by a combination of a knife wound to her chest and a blow to her head. On a kitchen counter, police found a piece of paper with Allen’s name and phone number on it. A neighbor of Griffin’s informed police that Allen had inquired with Griffin about a car that the neighbor had for sale. Police later discovered Griffin’s camera at the car wash where Allen worked. After extensive questioning, Allen admitted to the police that he had struck Griffin, but denied killing her.

Allen was charged with Murder, See footnote Felony Murder, See footnote and Robbery. See footnote A jury convicted Allen on all three charges and recommended a sentence of death. The trial court sentenced Allen to death on August 30, 1988.

Opal Cooper, 85 [8/1974] (sentenced to 2-21 years for manslaughter, released 1/1985)
