A reader sent me this article about a serial killing, assaulting man with ties to Michigan dating back to 1979:
Ottawa County detectives believe this animal is responsible for the 1979 sexual assault of a 27-year-old woman in Holland, MI, and the 1989 abduction and attempted rape of a 6-year-old in that county. Detectives noted that DNA testing is advancing daily and investigators plan to retest, saying this freak remains the main suspect. “Despite the inability to prosecute [him], the victims need closure, and police continue to look at other Ottawa County cold cases to see if [he] is the culprit.”
The reader included this message: “Don’t ever give up hope. There are a few in prison who know the truth. All it takes is one honest person, with evidence, and the right anti-corruption investigators, to extrapolate the unweaving of the web.”
One thought on “Despite the inability to prosecute, the victims need closure”
The answer lies in corrections.
