The People of the State of Michigan v. Christopher Brian Busch 3310 Morningview Terrace Birmingham, MI, OCP Order No. 77-19095, District Court Case No. 77-0084

This is the copy of the file I found in the case Oakland County was basically forced to file against Chris Busch in the wake of the interviews of Greg Greene and Busch in Flint the last week of January 1977. The origin of the document is unknown; it was not provided in the FOIA documents Jessica Cooper provided first to reporter Kevin Dietz, then to the Detroit Free Press, and then ultimately (after clearly waiving their bullshit exemptions by providing to the media), to my Dad. This is a copy of the case brought against Busch on behalf of victim Ken Bowman.

I say “forced to file” because there was no way around it. Greene had been arrested in Flint on January 25, 1977, for criminal sexual contact with a number of boys from the baseball team this monster coached. He tossed Busch’s name as a suspect in the murder of Mark Stebbins. Greene went on to say some disturbing and incriminating things, including the fact that he and Busch had victimized Bowman in Oakland County and that Bowman was aware that Busch “had killed a boy.” So the police then interviewed young Ken Bowman. This resulted in the arrest of Chris Busch in Alma, Michigan.

Interviews with Busch resulted in charges being brought against him in Flint, Midland and Montmorency Counties, involving victims Bowman and Vince Gunnels. The gravy train started up for attorney Jane Burgess. Oakland County was the last county to file against Busch. No one in Oakland County even investigated Busch’s claims that he also found victims through his participation in the Big Brother program. Nope. It was just this case and we all know that in spite of charges being brought in four different counties, this freak got probation every single time.

This file is not a part of the FOIA documents I have previously posted. But here it is now. And of course the OCP didn’t willingly hand this over to us. I also discovered all of the pleadings filed in the case against Jessica Cooper after she denied my Dad’s FOIA request and the courts backed her:

All of that time and money, and Cooper subsequently provides a couple hundred documents to the media as a “fuck you” to our family. And then offloads the rest of the real file in the OCCK to Sheriff Mike Bouchard to evade FOIA requirements going forward. Oakland County is, was, and may always be, the dirtiest county in Michigan. They just continue to ignore and slow walk so that soon everyone who touched the Busch files is dead.
