This is the last part of this series of posts about how the OCCK case got resurrected (really resurrected) in 2005 when the late pedophile and murderer Richard Lawson starting talking to Livonia PD Det. Cory Williams. This will take you to 2008. There is a lot here.
For now I will leave it at that, with just the few following observations:
1. The level of work done by then Livonia Detective Cory Williams and Wayne County is off the charts. Thinking outside of the box. Pushing for some semblance of justice in these abandoned cases.
2. Who was protecting kids back in the 1970s? Apparently no one. They were being thrown to the wolves.
3. It is so hard to realize any humanity in the pedophiles and liars in these pages. It is just asking too much.
4. How much have actions by the Oakland County prosecutors office, past and present, thwarted or impeded this investigation and why?
4. A book is due out in the fall of 2020 and hopefully some of these people and all of these issues will be discussed in greater depth. As soon as I know anything about the release date, I will post all the information.
5. Other media works are in progress. The Universe wants these crimes solved.
IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE OAKLAND COUNTY CHILD KILLINGS, POSSIBLE COVER UPS IN THIS INVESTIGATION, OR CRIMES THAT COULD BE RELATED, CALL THE MICHIGAN STATE POLICE TIP LINE AT 833-784-9425. The name or information you provide could help more than you know.
As a recap, this investigation started with the January 2005 arrest of Richard Lawson for the 1989 murder of a Livonia resident. He told police he knew who “did the Michigan Snow Killings,” and gave police the name of Ted Lamborgine.
To the immense credit of Det./Sgt. Cory Williams and Wayne County, the investigation that ensued resulted in the prosecution of both Lawson and Lamborgine for criminal sexual conduct with minors. The investigation also unearthed a dark, evil network of pedophiles and child pornographers operating in Detroit, the suburbs and other parts of Michigan.
It took tremendous courage for the victims of Lawson and Lamborgine to talk to police and to testify against these two animals. I don’t think anyone can really understand how much this must re-traumatize a person and resurrect pain in exponential degrees. Their courage is an immense contrast to that of the worthless pieces of shit detailed in these pages.
Keep in mind that Lawson and Lamborgine both fled the state of Michigan after their crimes, thereby tolling the statute of limitations for these sex crimes. The other monsters in these pages rode out the clock and in most cases evaded any responsibility for what they did. If the Universe was fair, the den mother for the pedophiles and her sister would have been charged with child trafficking and many, many others would have been charged with CSCs against minors and child pornography. On the up side, both Lawson and Lamborgine were sent to prison for their crimes and Lawson died in prison.
So many hidden issues and invisible scars in these pages. So many questions. The biggest question of all is who was protecting kids in Michigan during this era? Who is protecting them now? Shame on Michigan for protecting predators and not victims. This story in Wayne County is the only attempt at some sort of justice I have come across.
This article, appearing today, is part of The New York Times True Crime storytelling project:

February 2007 in the investigation of Lamborgine and Lawson and information impacting the OCCK investigation:
IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE OAKLAND COUNTY CHILD KILLINGS OR RELATED CRIMES PLEASE CALL THE TIP LINE AT 833-784-9425.
The Lawson/Lamborgine investigation continues to reveal tentacles in the Detroit suburbs. Page 89, lines 37-48, December 2006, reveals a 1977 victim of Lamborgine who called police after he saw press on Lamborgine. He will later appear in the Busch investigation as he was a victim of Busch and later a lure for Busch and Greene. This victim will later tell police that Busch forced him to have sex with a boy who looked like Tim King; that he saw a photo of a boy who looked like Tim King tied up in the back of Busch’s car; and that after the sexual encounter, he was with Busch when dropped Tim King off at Lamborgine’s house.
Remember, at this time in the investigation the names Chris Busch, Greg Greene (and Arch Sloan, for that matter), have not yet surfaced.
September 2006 – February 2007:
Just so we are all on the same page. This is what shows up in the driver’s seat of my blog. Word Press is a decent platform. There are glitches and I am working on figuring that out. But it spits out some interesting user information.
The search terms are always interesting. Almost every day they contain “Frank Shelden” or “North Fox Island.” Another big one is “Christopher Busch death photos.”
I use this spammer as an example of what shows up on site users. Because he is selling little blue pills, I figure all privacy bets are off.
More documents tomorrow.
I was checking the admin function of the blog just now (something I rarely do, but should start doing daily) and a number of comments were in the “pending” file (waiting for approval) and some in the “spam” folder were not spam. I apologize. This probably accounts for the difficulties some people have had in getting their comments posted immediately.
When I started the blog I did not set up the comment function. I wanted to avoid what happened on Topix and other websites with in-fighting and vaguely threatening and irrelevant comments. Then I set up the comment function with an approval filter, so there was always a delay in comments (and I would often forget to check). Then I allowed any post to be immediately published, but that caught up the people who were sending me information they most certainly did not want published. After a few people had posts go through that they did not want published, I went back to the approval process.
Too many posts got diverted that way, so I went back to the immediate post function. But clearly some people continue to get diverted into the “holding tank” area. I apologize. I will check those folders more regularly. I was not ignoring you on purpose.
Then we have the other end of the spectrum. I told you shit was gonna get real. If you post or subscribe and you fuck with me, I will send your ISP and IP information to law enforcement. I’m done with bullshit. Stick to the facts.
