Take a listen to the latest episode(s) of a new podcast about the OCCK case. Start at the beginning if you are new to the series.
I am always struck by the observations of people of all ages and from all over the country and the world about this case. How on earth did Oakland County and the Michigan State Police control their dirty narrative for all these decades and how are they still able to remain mute in the face of evidence and questions that should be addressed publicly once and for all? How are the state police allowed to talk out of both sides of their mouths: The case is open, so we won’t comment or respond to FOIA requests, yet we continue to lose evidence in this still-open case? How is it that every prosecutor since L. Brooks Patterson has looked the other way and wiped their hands of this case, thereby supporting and perpetuating the removal of Brooksie’s “fingerprints” from this case and thereby joining the ranks of the complicit?
A reader wrote me and asked “Let’s say the actual killer is found. Then what?” Then people at the MSP and the OCP have to do their jobs; investigate all of the connections to this person/persons, why he/they were dismissed or overlooked as a suspect, determine who knew and kept quiet, who was complicit, determine if there was any obstruction of justice and whether any money exchanged hands, ask for any living victims to come forward, charge and try anyone still living, and explain all of this to the public. Oh yeah, and admit to errors, omissions and perhaps much worse. That’s for starters. Now that Det. Williams is retired can you think of anyone who would deal with any of this? They are too busy covering their asses and the asses of their predecessors to speak/work on behalf of the dead kids who can’t speak for themselves.
