Listen to Kevin Price, host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interview J. Reuben Appelman, author of The Kill Jar and on-camera investigator and an executive producer of a two-part documentary series, Children of the Snow about the Oakland County Child Killer crimes.
Part 2 of Interview with Producer of Film on Oakland County Child Killer — How He Narrowly Missed Being Abducted
Turns out that although no one in law enforcement in Michigan ever says much about these crimes, there is discussion going on at a national level. Michigan State Police, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, local Oakland County police departments, the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office–they all stick to the script drawn up at some point in 1978. Keep the case open, control the narrative (misinformation if necessary), say nothing of substance and punish those that speak up or ask questions. This has been going on for over four decades. Sorry, but we all smell the bacon and now people around the country and beyond do, too.
Soon after my Dad’s death, I spoke with reporter Randy Wimbley with Fox News Detroit. We discussed my Dad’s pursuit of justice for answers in my brother Tim’s death. I told Randy if he called the MSP or the OCP they would have no comment on this story. I don’t know if Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard was contacted about this story or whether this was old footage. Check out the bullshit at about 2:15 in this story:
Incredibly frustrating? Man, you don’t know the half of it.
I guess Kevin Price is still interested in the story. His third interview with J. Reuben Appelman is next week. I will post the link.
Children of the Snow originally aired on the ID channel in February 2019 and is streaming on Hulu. The Kill Jar: Obsession, Descent and a Search for Detroit’s Most Notorious Serial Killer (Simon & Schuster, 2018) is available on Amazon.com.
