The Lawson/Lamborgine investigation continues to reveal tentacles in the Detroit suburbs. Page 89, lines 37-48, December 2006, reveals a 1977 victim of Lamborgine who called police after he saw press on Lamborgine. He will later appear in the Busch investigation as he was a victim of Busch and later a lure for Busch and Greene. This victim will later tell police that Busch forced him to have sex with a boy who looked like Tim King; that he saw a photo of a boy who looked like Tim King tied up in the back of Busch’s car; and that after the sexual encounter, he was with Busch when dropped Tim King off at Lamborgine’s house.
Remember, at this time in the investigation the names Chris Busch, Greg Greene (and Arch Sloan, for that matter), have not yet surfaced.
September 2006 – February 2007:
Just so we are all on the same page. This is what shows up in the driver’s seat of my blog. Word Press is a decent platform. There are glitches and I am working on figuring that out. But it spits out some interesting user information.
The search terms are always interesting. Almost every day they contain “Frank Shelden” or “North Fox Island.” Another big one is “Christopher Busch death photos.”
I use this spammer as an example of what shows up on site users. Because he is selling little blue pills, I figure all privacy bets are off.
More documents tomorrow.
I was checking the admin function of the blog just now (something I rarely do, but should start doing daily) and a number of comments were in the “pending” file (waiting for approval) and some in the “spam” folder were not spam. I apologize. This probably accounts for the difficulties some people have had in getting their comments posted immediately.
When I started the blog I did not set up the comment function. I wanted to avoid what happened on Topix and other websites with in-fighting and vaguely threatening and irrelevant comments. Then I set up the comment function with an approval filter, so there was always a delay in comments (and I would often forget to check). Then I allowed any post to be immediately published, but that caught up the people who were sending me information they most certainly did not want published. After a few people had posts go through that they did not want published, I went back to the approval process.
Too many posts got diverted that way, so I went back to the immediate post function. But clearly some people continue to get diverted into the “holding tank” area. I apologize. I will check those folders more regularly. I was not ignoring you on purpose.
Then we have the other end of the spectrum. I told you shit was gonna get real. If you post or subscribe and you fuck with me, I will send your ISP and IP information to law enforcement. I’m done with bullshit. Stick to the facts.
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.

Continued, 11-22-05 to January 26, 2006:
I am going to start this post with two quotes. The first is from an unidentified author in a book called “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (1871 & 1905):
“We cannot understand the moral Universe. The arc is a long one and our eyes reach but a little way; we cannot calculate the curve and complete the figure by the experience of sight; but we can divine it by conscience, and we surely know that it bends toward justice. Justice will not fail, though wickedness appears strong, and has on its side the armies and thrones of power, the riches and the glory of the world, and though poor men crouch down in despair. Justice will not fail and perish out from the world of men, nor will what is really wrong and contrary to God’s real law of justice continually endure.”
The second quote is from former Vice President Hubert Humphrey on November 1, 1977, at a dedication of the Hubert Humphrey Building dedication: “The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children: those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”
These two quotes are important considerations before reading what will follow.
A reader sent a link to this collection of film footage from back in the day on the OCCK case. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzk55lEGBbo&t=315s. If the video starts midway, go back to the opening with Walter Cronkite. In news footage, Robert Robertson, commander of the OCCK task force in 1977 and 1978 explains that investigations had uncovered a huge number of pedophiles in the metro-Detroit area. He explains “[w]e knew we had a problem but we didn’t recognize it as such.”
Wow. Pretty big miss, as you will read over the next posts. The FOIA documents you have read thus far hint at the involvement of multiple pedophiles operating in the concentric circles around these child murders. Fifteen years ago (15!!!), Wayne County confronted the dark times of pedophelia and child pornography back in the 1970s. Richard Lawson rattled some cages when he tried to save his sorry skin after being arrested in 2005 for the 1989 murder of a Livonia man. He gave Livonia police the name of Ted Lamborgine.
Lawson was convicted of the murder of Exavor Giller and sentenced to life without parole. He gave police plenty of information relating to his contention that Theodore (Ted) Lamborgine was the Oakland County child killer. As part of their investigation, many underage victims of sexual assault were identified. https://www.bgfalconmedia.com/ohio-man-sexually-assaults-juveniles/article_f4f9cb0a-117a-5631-8fe5-ab138e70f18d.html. Lamborgine and Lawson were both convicted in Wayne County for numerous sexual assaults against a total of 14 boys. Lawson died in prison and Lamborgine will never see the light of day as a free man again.
Here’s a refresher on how the focus was turned to Ted Lamborgine:
So let’s back up on the FOIA documents to 2005 after Lawson has tried to dime Lamborgine for the child killings. The story is set out very well below and will take a few posts to complete. It is slow going because due to the number of victims of these monsters in Detroit and surrounding areas, I have had to make additional redactions.
This is nightmare material. Quite literally. But you will also read about real courage and unbelievably hard work.
Names continue to surface. Multiple people may well have been involved in or have knowledge of. these child abductions and murders. No DNA match has yet been made to hair evidence found on two of the victims. Pedophiles will offend for the rest of their lives if given the chance. If you have information about the Oakland County child murders or activity you believe may be related to these crimes, please call the tip line at 833-784-9425.
Take a listen to Bradley Edwards, an attorney who represented victims of pedophile/predator Jeffrey Epstein, as he describes the threats he and his family had to endure from Epstein and “high places” during his quest to expose Epstein and make him pay for his crimes. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8245129/Attorney-Jeffrey-Epsteins-victims-claims-pedophile-threatened-family.html. In the end, perhaps someone in or near the circles of wealthy, influential, well-known men in Epstein’s orbit made sure Epstein kept silent as well.
Harvey Weinstein had almost as big a bankroll behind his victim and witness intimidation protocol, as well as his stalking and spying on investigative reporters like Ronan Farrow who ultimately revealed him for what he was. In spite of their wealth and resources, both of these men wound up in prison.
How many victims and witnesses in the OCCK and related cases were threatened or somehow silenced? From Cass Corridor to the Detroit suburbs to N. Fox Island and other parts of Michigan and the entire country, there had to have been a trail of threats and intimidation. I am aware of two women who have been stalked by child predators who fear exposure in the past decade. These predators don’t have the resources Epstein and Weinstein had. They are old now and it is easier to get busted. You have managed to skate on CSC charges, child porn charges and child trafficking charges for decades. Do you really want to mess with stalking and threats of or attempted murder? I don’t think prison is a great environment for inmates who have that shit on their resume. Your protectors and enablers are dropping like flies–no one lives forever.
Thank god Bradley Edwards and Ronan Farrow stuck it out and didn’t cave in the face of monied freaks like Epstein and Weinstein. And thank god victims were willing to testify against Ted Lamborgine and Richard Lawson when they were prosecuted and convicted in 2006 in Wayne County for raping kids in the late 1970s. How great would it be if the client/donor list from N. Fox Island was made public without redactions? The horror of realizing who was on that list would be epic. They weren’t all dirty pedophiles from the Cass. I bet plenty of them were dirty pedophiles wearing suits and ties and living neat suburban lives. It is all connected. It is.
In the good news for a change department, the documentary Children of the Snow (Cineflix, Canada and U.S.) has been nominated for an award in the Documentary & Factual, Crime & Investigative category at the Banff World Media Festival International Program Competition. https://rockies.playbackonline.ca/nominees. The documentary originally aired on the Investigation Discovery Channel and has been streaming on Hulu for the past few months. https://www.hulu.com/series/children-of-the-snow-e5670464-7adc-4907-80c1-9f38ce17ee82.
The Season One series has two parts so the case is condensed into just under four hours of air time. There was much to boil down and the collaborators on this film had much work to do to make the case understandable and appeal to a t.v. audience. They did not touch the Cass Corridor pedophile and child porn rings or the suspected ring that operated within/near General Motors Corporation. So many concentric circles–that would have involved many, many more hours of air time. Hats off to them for the nomination and for their hard work. Criminals and their enablers win when the story stays untold.
This is further evidence that the pedophiles, child traffickers and pornographers and their enablers continue to lose control of the narrative. In 2005 it was Richard Lawson spilling to police about Ted Lamborine and others who may have been involved in or have knowledge of the OCCK. In 2006 polygrapher Larry Wasser slips up at a polygraph conference and by November 2007 there are revelations about Christopher Busch and Greg Greene. A mtDNA match and other information brings Vince Gunnels into the equation. Police are forced to look at John Hastings again after dismissing him as a suspect in 1977 and again in 1992. FOIA documents reveal lost opportunities in the investigation. Online chatter increases exponentially. Media coverage gets big for a short time. Books are written about the case. https://outskirtspress.com/portraitsinthesnow; https://www.simonandschuster.com/books/The-Kill-Jar/J-Reuben-Appelman/9781501190001. Children of the Snow airs. And more, hopefully, is coming on every media front.
And here is more good news, sent to me by a reader:
“In War on Child Porn, US Turns Wounded Soldiers into Hunters”:
This was my Dad’s take on the OCCK investigation as of August 2, 2017. Just a note on the promise to follow up on leads–Cory Williams has since retired from his role as an investigator with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. Denise Powell with the Michigan State Police (succeeded Gray and Robertson) moved on from this assignment which was passed to another detective and then another. The tip line number is 833-784-9425. Detective Street is currently assigned to this cold case.
for the 2019 update from my Dad’s perspective.
There is more to share to add to what is available to the public to understand this case. Then you will have a bigger but still incomplete picture. We may never know the truth.
