Thirty-seven Christmases without Tim. Nine years since the task force told us they had enough information to reopen the investigation. What happened to those little kids–for days and weeks in one case–was the most horrific, unconscionable stuff imaginable. The people who participated in these abductions and murders are monsters. The people who covered the monsters’ asses and the cops who tried to make this go away are not much better. We got re-victimized by the system in Oakland County and Southern Michigan, many decades later. It was more than shitty. That’ll teach us, now won’t it?! But you can’t outlive all of us. You will still have family members who live with the fall-out, just like we do. It’s just the way it works.
