Take a listen to author Marney Rich Keenan discuss her book The Snow Killings: Inside the Oakland County Child Killing Investigation with podcaster Dan Zupansky on True Murder: The Most Shocking Killers. Listen until the end, some information not discussed in previous podcasts is explored:
The Clown and The Candyman airs on ID (Investigation Discovery) on March 14 and 15 at 9:00 p.m. The eight-part narrative podcast which aired before this documentary and includes discussion of the OCCK crimes and the original pedophile island–N. Fox Island and predator Frank Shelden is ground-breaking. If you haven’t listened to all eight episodes here is the link:

I will post a reminder and a link closer to March 14th. I watched the documentary on Discovery-Plus and it was excellent. Cineflix also produced Children of the Snow, a documentary based on a book written by J. Reuben Appelman about the OCCK crimes. https://www.hulu.com/series/children-of-the-snow-e5670464-7adc-4907-80c1-9f38ce17ee82. It first aired two years ago, in February 2019.
People all over the world have viewed Children of the Snow and some have spoken up. They contacted my Dad. They contacted me. They contacted J. Reuben Appelman. They contacted Marney Keenan. Are you sensing a theme? None of us has police powers. The MSP had a tip line for a time, but I know of very, very few people (3?) who were contacted in response to leaving information. Now the tip line is dead. I can’t tell people who to call with tips. Michigan has been very effective at first not asking the public for help and then, decades later after information is given to the public via books and media, making it impossible to get any traction on leads or pangs of conscience motivated by these works. Call someone other than the MSP? In circular fashion, they will happily send you to the MSP. Where your information will go no where. They have had 45 years to perfect their technique.
Even after all of the work done by Cory Williams and Wayne County, Oakland County and the MSP continue to do the bob and weave on this case. I don’t know what it’s going to take, but I am giving a lot of thought to what can be done to move this thing. You have won so far, but keep looking over your shoulder. We are still here waiting for some semblance of justice for four dead pre-teens who can no longer speak for themselves. The shame should be overwhelming, but all these liars and weak-tit ego-maniacs have weathered it so far. All of it. I hope to find a way to sink this sick ship.
Compare this case, announced by the Michigan AG today, where someone called in a tip on an Osceola County Sheriff’s Deputy who was sentenced for child sex crimes and felony drug charges. https://www.9and10news.com/2021/02/26/former-osceola-county-sheriffs-deputy-facing-child-sex-crimes-felony-drug-charges/. The system worked. Someone calls in a tip, someone takes it seriously and this freak gets arrested and pleads guilty based on the investigation. It is almost incomprehensible when you compare it to the OCCK case.
The predation discussed in these podcasts, books and documentaries is so profoundly disturbing and the thought that officials continue to throw up roadblocks in the investigation into the OCCK and related child victimization cases is perhaps even more so. The rot is deep and foundational and speaks not only to guilty silence on the part of many, but also public corruption. As Marney Keenan says in this podcast: The truth matters. Don’t let these people in Oakland County and the MSP, charged with protecting society and working on behalf of victims, continue to act in a way to defile this concept.
