Tip of the iceberg, Oakland County. You can start with the easy one–former assistant prosecutor Greg Townsend and his problems with the basic constitutional requirement of disclosing information that could help confirm the innocence of a defendant. Then how about your previous prosecutors, some of their “select” staff, Sheriff Mike Bouchard, Det./Sgt. Gary Miller, Det./Sgt. David Wurtz (of “get lost, John Hastings comes from a good family” fame)? Wake up. Paying for an independent counsel is only the first installment on what you should ultimately be required to pay out. Almost five decades of sketchy shit. Cleaning house gonna get expensive. Time to pay the piper.
Molester priests and a “prominent” Catholic family. Interesting combination.
Sixty years later, investigators are still willing to try to find answers to get justice for this little boy and answers for his remaining family members. I didn’t see “we are too busy,” “we don’t have the budget,” “why can’t this family just accept . . .” in the reporting.
Former Penn State President Will Serve 2 Months in Jail in Child Abuse Scandal; Graham B. Spanier, who was found guilty in 2017 of one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child, must report to prison on July 9.Posted: May 28, 2021
While this is most certainly a waste of my time, it is also a matter of justice. Let the record reflect, this is how the MSP does business:
Here is a video of Marney Keenan’s May 12, 2021 presentation on The Snow Killings for the Spring Lake District Library. It is worth your time. I understand last night’s presentation through the Ferndale Public Library was excellent as well. If the content from Facebook doesn’t embed, I will try to link in a comment below.
Keep asking questions and talking about these crimes and the fact that, despite millions of dollars and tens of thousands of man hours, these crimes have never been solved. Listen to Marney Keenan’s presentation and ask yourself how TF this could be the case?
Earlier this month it was announced that the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Unit is investigating the 40-year-old murder of Anne Marie Doroghazi, a 20-year-old who worked at Camp Dearborn.
The Milford Police have a page devoted to two cold cases from their jurisdiction, including Ms. Doroghazi’s case:
A reader asked a very good question about this:
“Did someone tell Milford Police about all the money and manpower Oakland County got to solve the Oakland County Child Killer cases — and that it still hasn’t managed to solve them?”
I do not see how you can read these documents from the FOIA response and conclude that Greene was on the streets after his arrest in Flint in late January, 1977. Feel free to disagree. Ask anyone who says Lourn Doan established Greene was indeed out on bond until he was sent to Jackson prison on June 16, 1977, if they actually spoke to Doan and asked him specifically about this.
On February 14, 1978, the report on Greene stating he was “out on bond,” was updated and states Greene’s probation officer was contacted and confirmed Greene was in custody from the minute he was arrested in Flint until he was packed off to Jackson Prison.
Next, consider this undated note written by “Julie” at Flint PD to Doan about Greene:
Consider the docket sheet in Michigan v. Gregory Woodard Greene:
Next, it looks like the MSP was still interested in Greg Greene in 1995. Maybe the state police are called to investigate every death of an inmate at Jackson. I have to wonder.
That composite drawing of a man seen talking with my brother on the evening of March 16, 1977, therefore cannot be Greg Greene. So who the hell is it? The Michigan State Police did not follow up with Hastings after he failed a polygraph given to him in October 2009 by Georgia Highway Patrol. The conclusion of the polygrapher was that Hastings “absolutely” knew Chris Busch and had some involvement in these child killing crimes. Not only was this not followed up on, the MSP now claims the reports, notes and DVDs prepared by GHP “cannot be found.”
Here is Greg Greene, check out his hairline:
Argue all you want about Hastings being or not being a suspect. I maintain the Hastings lead was never extinguished, never fully investigated because no one did shit on this tip after the polygraph in Georgia. Yet another loose end, this one involving a living person (and the numbers are dwindling). And for my money, a polygraph from Georgia is worth a hell of a lot more than any polygraph from Michigan. Why spend all the time and energy on a trip to Georgia and use the time and resources of another agency if you are just going to fucking drop it?
This is episode 11 of Eddie White’s podcast The Forever Children of Oakland County:
Pay particular attention to the part where White, referencing Marney Keenan’s book, The Snow Killings, describes the lengths Detective Cory Williams goes to to protect his family and the integrity of his files from the cops and prosecutors who allegedly have society’s best interests at heart. This is how the Michigan State Police and the Oakland County Prosecutor’s office roll. My family has always been more worried about those with badges and law degrees than any of the aging remnants of a pedophile ring or their reputation-conscious, obstructing family members. Former Oakland County assistant prosecuting attorney Greg Townsend is the tip of a 50-year dirty iceberg. Think of what can happen when state police and prosecutors abuse their discretion (and far worse) and get away with it for decades. The possibilities are endless.
Forty-one men have filed suit in federal court against Ohio State University after a report from a law firm investigation concluded university employees were aware of concerns about sexual predator and team doctor Richard Strauss as early as 1979 but didn’t stop him from sexually abusing patients at the school.
At least 400 claims have previously been made alleging similar conduct by the doctor and the failures of the university to stop this predator and protect its students. Until results of the law firm’s investigation made national headlines in 2019, many of the men in the newly filed federal cases thought their experiences were isolated, didn’t recognize those as sexual assault, or didn’t know that school officials had been aware of concerns during the doctor’s tenure.
“‘With this suit, plaintiffs seek to hold OSU accountable for its failures, and to ensure that something like this can never happen again,’ lawyers wrote in one of the new cases.” Never. Again. Believe victims the first time and stop automatically taking the word of a narcissistic predator. Or it’ll cost ya.
