Happy Birthday, Tim.

Today my brother Tim would have turned 54 years old. Born on July 9, 1966 and murdered on March 22, 1977.

Yesterday a reader wrote me to say his purchase request was approved at Birmingham’s Baldwin Public Library for Marney Rich Keenan’s book The Snow Killings: Inside the Oakland County Child Killer Investigation. The book will be released on July 17. He made the request based on his impression of Marney Keenan’s work and her reputation and his belief that “this chapter on our community should never be swept away and forgotten.” Thank you for this act of kindness–the timing was awesome. If any public library should have a copy of that book, it’s Baldwin. I will donate my copy as well.

And thank you to two readers who have reached out in the past few days about contacting CeCe Moore’s show The Genetic Detective. One went as far as to contact the show, suggest this case be considered and include background links concerning this case.

Tim knows there are brave people out there working on behalf of not only his memory, but the memories of Mark, Jill and Kristine. The day is almost over, but tomorrow maybe a random act of kindness in honor of Tim’s birthday. The world could sure use it.

    Hopefully the positive energy from embodying the eagerness and innocence of an 11 year old boy can, even just for a few minutes, alter the negative swirl we are experiencing right now.

    I’m reading Keenan’s THE SNOW KILLINGS right now. It’s hefty, awesome and it’s the book we’ve needed all along. I expect media coverage! Because it’s a terrific expose.

    I have been thinking of this today, and submitted the story to the Netflix Unsolved Mysteries series.

    Happy Birthday, Tim.

    Never forgotten. There are good people left, fighting for you, your family and the other victims and their families.

    Cathy, hope his birthday brings you and your family great memories and love.
