“Out of the strain of doing, into the peace of the done.” –Julia Louise Woodruff

As I scramble to have some last gasp of a statement of how fucked this entire investigation is and has been, let me just say that we have almost done everything we can, and let me apologize in advance for the language I will use.  I feel it is justified under the circumstances.  If you can’t deal with that and will hold against me, please stop reading now.  Just know we aren’t done and won’t give up exposing what we learn contributed to making this investigation into the abductions, captivity, torture, rape, murder and dumping of four kids’ bodies in and around Oakland County, Michigan, fail and fuck up an entire generation of kids.  Why?  Because no one in Oakland County EVER tried to explain what the fuck happened in the biggest manhunt in Michigan history and how four little kids from four suburban towns got picked up in Oakland County and subjected to the nightmare none of you wants to even contemplate.  “Sorry, everyone.  The killers were just too smart.  And these goddamn families who are asking questions after 36 years are just a pain in the ass.  Get lost.  Trust us.  This won’t happen again.”  Seriously?!

These killers were dumb bastard opportunist pedophiles who got away with murder in Ferndale and then kept pushing the envelope, taking advantage of suburban police departments.  Mark Stebbin’s abduction was a crime of opportunity–as they all were, but Mark’s abduction was the first.  In Ferndale.  And these fuckers got away with it.  And later kept going (including body dump sites):  Royal Oak, Troy, Berkley, Franklin Village, Birmingham–who the fuck cares?!  An autopsy by the Oakland County Medical Examiner–even better!!  It’s not until my brother’s body gets dumped in Livonia, MI, a few feet into Wayne County, that the party is over.

As my family now scrambles to document this bullshit–via video, this stupid blog, trying to help authors who are writing about this crime, my poor Dad comments–we have to keep going because  “the legal system is failing Tim.”  Here’s why I can’t let it ruin my day-to-day life:  the legal system ALREADY FAILED MARK STEBBINS, JILL ROBINSON, KRISTINE MICHELICH AND TIMOTHY KING.  Congratulations, motherfuckers:  you already crushed the very people you were supposed to speak for.  I long ago stopped asking how people in law enforcement in Oakland County look themselves in the mirror.  Same goes for you at the MSP, even you new people assigned to this piece of shit file that is going nowhere.  You already screwed over those four little kids.  And whoever else these fucks killed.  Live with that.  Until I got this shit dropped in my lap in 2006 my feeling was that the best I could do to honor my brother’s memory was to live life to the best of my ability every single day.  No way was I giving these animals another piece of me.  I HATE that the cops took a piece away from me from 2006 to now.  But you get no more.  My goal now is just to document how fucked up your investigation was and is.  And to expose any person who kept the animals who committed these crimes under the radar.  While they may be dead, you are not.  I have done almost everything I can in this case and then some–especially for a victim’s family member.  You have had an almost 40-year Get Out of Jail Free Card.  Because this isn’t a game, your card will in fact expire.  Now or later.  Take your pick.
