“West Bloomfield man cleared in child killings.”

Thank you to a reader who found this brief article in the Detroit Free Press (1-16-80) that was a follow up to the arrest of Ralph Wayne Bryie:

Looks like the sheriff’s office cleared him and perhaps not in consultation with the 1980 version of the MSP “task force.” Maybe he had an alibi for one of the abduction or body dump dates. Maybe he got one of those magic polygraphs from somebody like Melvin Scott or Ralph Cabot. One thing’s for damn sure: Nobody asked him about the child sex and porn ring that was operating out of GM and in Oakland County. In Oakland County?? GM?? Never!!

Did you ever see an article about Christopher Busch that said “Because of the nature of the [CSC with minors] charge, [he] was questioned in the murders of four Oakland County children in 1976-77”? Being a salvage inspector for GM Truck and Coach in Pontiac is a little different that being a pedophile son of someone from GM Corporate.

  1. Excellent point!! Why would Detroit Free Press run a story on this freak when the Christopher Busch story would have made the front page?! How exactly did GM pull this off?

      It took 32 years and some loose lips for Christopher Busch to get his front page treatment. Because H. Lee and LBP are now gone, only someone with a conscience who knows what happened to make sure this case was never “solved” or “closed” can tell us. They have lived with themselves this long; I don’t see anyone growing a conscience or finding integrity.
