Thanks again to a reader who found segments of my Dad’s blog on the Wayback Machine Web Archive. I don’t know why the blog disappeared; perhaps a bill for the website or the domain name was forwarded to my Dad in the last three months of his life and it got lost in the mayhem that is end of life. The segments were transferred to a Word doc and the first batch is best read last page first. Parts are missing, but it is still followable.
A reader let me know that my Dad’s blog, Barry King, A Father’s Story, is no longer online. My Dad’s old law firm helped him manage this blog and it appears they have taken it down since his death. Neither I nor my siblings were notified of this or notified whether the content was captured. The lack of communication is, at this point, not surprising to me; rather it is par for the course.
With the help of another reader we put the 2013 DVD segments from Decades of Deceit: A True Story of the King Family Search for the Oakland County Child Killer up on YouTube last April. If you haven’t watched it, you should. This has most of what was on my Dad’s blog, just in a different format. Nothing has changed since 2013–we have not gotten answers from law enforcement or officials. There are 31 “chapters,” start with this one where my Dad describes why he felt compelled to make this DVD:

They just ran out the clock on my Dad. Their behavior is beyond shameful and in some cases I believe it is criminal and this explains the utter lack of transparency and outright deception. It explains the decades of deceit.
