Pre-order The Snow Killings, by Marney Rich Keenan.

Marney Rich Keenan’s book, The Snow Killings, Inside the Oakland County Child Killer Investigation, is available for pre-order.

About the book:

Over 13 months in 1976­–1977, four children were abducted in the Detroit suburbs, each of them held for days before their still-warm bodies were dumped in the snow near public roadsides. The Oakland County Child Murders spawned panic across southeast Michigan, triggering what was then the most extensive manhunt in U.S. history. Yet after less than two years, the task force created to find the killer was shut down without naming a suspect. The case “went cold” for more than 30 years, until a chance discovery by one victim’s family pointed to the son of a wealthy General Motors executive: Christopher Brian Busch, a convicted pedophile, was freed weeks before the fourth child disappeared. Veteran Detroit News reporter Marney Rich Keenan takes the reader inside the investigation of the still-unsolved murders—seen through the eyes of the lead detective in the case and the family who cracked it open—revealing evidence of a decades-long coverup of malfeasance and obstruction that denied justice for the victims.

The book is due out in August/September. If you are interested in this case, and especially if you care about this case, buy it, read it and tell someone else about it. Especially if you live or lived in Oakland County.

  1. I’ve just placed my order. I was very impressed with Marney in Children of the Snow. I’m glad her book is finally being published. I hope she treats MSP and the Oakland County prosecutor’s office with the condemnation and scorn it deserves. Do I think it will rattle the powers that be enough to get the investigation back on track? I don’t know. I do wish a national news investigative program would take it on and show all of the ugly ineptitude of the police and prosecutors. And compare their lack of effort to jurisdictions that actively pursue dna evidence.

  2. Marney has immersed herself deeply into these cases and undertaken an almost impossible task of showing how this viscid web has been woven. I cannot imagine the toll this has taken on her. No one who is connected to any of his, whether through direct experience or because of proximity or because they followed these cases – no one comes out unscathed.

  3. Marney Rich Keenan stands out among those in the Detroit media who have tried to tackle this case as a critical thinker and gifted writer. I very much look forward to this book. This case has long deserved a clinical dissection. I’m confident she will drill down into it.

  4. Thank you Cathy, i ordered the book 🙂 Over the years seeing all the reporters writing on the OCCK case, i think Marney has been the most devoted and caring. I am praying that fat moose Jessica Cooper loses and maybe the truth will finally come out. Wishing you and your family all the best! Jeremy Press
