That is what a Michigan State Police spokesperson said, off camera, to Heather Catallo of WXYZ Detroit concerning Marney Keenan’s well-researched and documented book, The Snow Killings: Inside the Oakland County Child Killer Investigation.
This is part one of a two-part series. The segment airs again tonight at 11 pm EST and you can live stream it or download the WXYZ app and watch for free at 11 pm. Go to “Sections” on the app and scroll down to “Live Video”.
Part two airs tomorrow at 6 and 11 pm.
No one from the MSP had the balls to appear on camera. This time they didn’t even throw down the “can’t comment on open cases” excuse. No, this time it was: “We don’t comment on fiction.”
This case MUST be taken from the state police and given to an agency that is not hellbent on protecting the fiction they created when they shut down this case in 1978. Help me figure out a way to get this done. They are doing what they do best–doubling down and fucking with people. They will never make this right.
Expect some lying on tomorrow night’s segment. You can bet on it.
Thank you to a reader for this link–https://www.genengnews.com/insights/cold-cases-heat-up-with-new-forensic-dna-methods/ (Cold Cases Heat Up with New Forensic DNA Methods).
The OCCK case is the kind of difficult case that can benefit from a wealth of new technology and partnership with cutting-edge companies that can achieve what the MSP state lab or Quantico apparently cannot. If ever there was a case with poor-quality samples, it is this one.
From the article:
The transfer of advances from the life sciences and medical fields to the field of forensic DNA analysis has led to a burst of innovation. Sophisticated genetic analysis techniques are now being used to unlock difficult samples, coupled with software and database tools capable of accurately and securely connecting the information with those who need it.
We need it.
