    Worthy: Probe of Oakland County child killer hindered

    Oakland, Wayne prosecutors' rift revealed over case

    By The Detroit News

    Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy blasted Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper on Wednesday for naming a person of interest in the Oakland County child killer case and releasing DNA test results, saying those actions "severely compromised our investigation."

    Cooper's revelation at a press conference Tuesday was described as a breakthrough in the unsolved murders of four children in 1976 and 1977. In an appeal to the public to come forward with information, Cooper named convicted pedophile Archibald Edward Sloan as a person of interest and said that a hair found in Sloan's red 1966 Pontiac Bonneville has the same mitochondrial DNA profile found on victims Mark Stebbins and Timothy King, the first and final victims.

    But Worthy, who is also investigating the case because one victim's body was found in Wayne County, said the information should not have been made public while investigators continued their work...

    Oh boy. I was surprised as well, fwiw, given that it appears they think there is another suspect in the wind....

    I wondered why Wayne County wasn't at the press conference but then I thought maybe they agreed to let Oakland handle it. I see now that wasn't the case.

    I'm watching channel 4 news. What a mess this is. Two completely different investigations going on--what a waste of energy and time. Kym Worthy has the right to be consulted prior to any information being given to the general public--one of these kids was found in her county.

    I've followed this case since it happened and I sure wish they could solve the case. I think if the investigation hadn't been botched, it might have been solved long ago. I hope it still can be solved. I'm glad they found new evidence this summer.

    In the comments there's a post from the mother of a victim, but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post that here? Well worth a read.

    Thank you for the welcome! My detectives really thought Lamborgine was good for the murders--he would confess to it though!! He did confess to being a Pedophile and being involved with a group of men who all shared the same sIck persuasions!!

    "2:39AM EDT October 19. 2012 - DETROIT -- Since the mid-1970s, the disturbing abduction murders of four Michigan children have been attributed to an unknown killer — but Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper isn't convinced all four cases are connected.

    "We don't know if it was one killer or two, operating in tandem, or not," Cooper said recently in a wide-ranging interview about newly released documents obtained by the Detroit Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act. "We just don't know. It will be science that will solve these cases."

    The documents reveal new details but also show that several other assumed facts of the cases aren't as they have been reported by investigators, the news media and family members for more than three decades."

    Sorry that was supposed to say he wouldn't confess to it.

    Tim kings older sister has a blog.

    http://catherinebroad.wordpress.com/

    He was the last of the OCCK victoms. Catherine was the last person other than a witness in the drug store parking lot to see him alive. There is alot of first hand knowledge and perspective on her posts that might help bring this case closure.

    I am new to this site but I grew up in the area of the crimes and have been following this case since i was 6-7 yrs old when it all happened.

    The program "Dark Minds" on the Investigation Discovery/ID channel featured this case. Below is a link to the full episode on YouTube. Several family members of the victims appear and are interviewed. Not much new information is presented, although at the end the host states that a grand jury has been convened to look at the evidence.

    Thanks for posting.

    I wonder why they didn't mention the dog hairs which is one of the main elements in connecting some of the murders - because it didn't fit their theory?
    This is my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    The hairs also appear to exonerate all previous suspects in the case. They do not match hairs belonging to Christopher Busch, Gregory Green, James Vincent Gunnels, Theodore Lamborgine, David Norberg, Larry Allen Smith and Todd Warzecha.

    Police think the blue Gremlin could be involved in a cold case out of Oakland County stemming from the mid-70s where four children were killed. A blue AMC Gremlin with white racing stripe was the vehicle description at the time.

    -they found several pieces of different cars
