    Police digging for new clues in girl’s 1981 disappearance
    BY TIFFANY L. PARKS
    Observer STAFF WRITER

    Where is Kim Marie Larrow?
    It’s a question Robert Cooper has asked himself a million times since his cousin’s disappearance and he’s no closer to the answer now than when she was last seen 27 years ago.



    “The worst part is that this has always been hush hush,” said Cooper, a retired police officer. “I have been told to mind my own business, but I know I’m doing the right thing. I’ll never drop this because Kim could be in a shallow grave somewhere. It’s like nobody cares — I almost cry thinking about it.”

    Gone without a trace
    The year was 1981 and the hot June sun beamed down over Canton.
    Kim, a cute, rebellious 15-year-old who never stayed in one place for long, had recently packed her bags and left her father’s Dundee home and made her way to Canton to spend the summer at her mother’s Beaufort Drive residence.

    Addition:

    "Hanging on to hope
    With Lucy Larrow now living in Arizona, Cooper said the last time he spoke with her, he was told to “drop this.”

    “I understand she may want to move on but if my daughter went missing, every day of my life would be devoted to finding her,” he said. “We have to at least try to find her.”

    During the resurgance of the investigation, which has been picked up as a project by the University of North Texas, Pomorski said detectives have spoken with Lucy Larrow on a couple of occasions."

    Sorry but

    This Lucy Larrow doesn't sound much like a grieving mother. 3 years after her daughters disappearance and she tells Kim's cousin to 'drop it' and move on? If I was the mother I would be searching day and night

    So would I. However, not wanting to pursue a missing child's case doesn't mean the mother was involved, or even that she was a bad parent. I'm actually in a discussion about this sort of thing on another board right now. Sometimes people just see it as a very painful experience they'd rather not think about at all. Maybe Lucy figures Kim doesn't want to be found, and she is ashamed/embarrassed/whatever by the whole thing.

    DNA sent to Texas in case of missing Canton teen

    When Robert Cooper read an article about a University of North Texas DNA database of unidentified deceased people, his thoughts turned to his cousin Kim Marie Larrow.
    It inspired him to reenergize the search for the girl, who was 15 when she went missing from Canton in 1981.
    Cooper, 46, of Temperance contacted the Canton Police Department, and the cold case once again is getting attention.

    27 years later, missing teen's cousin presses for answers
    Christine Ferretti / The Detroit News
    CANTON TOWNSHIP -- When Kim Marie Larrow left the Stroh's Ice Cream parlor on Sheldon Road nearly 30 years ago, she was planning to meet up with friends to hang out in Hines Park.

    She never showed and nobody seemed to care.

    A chronic runaway who liked to hitchhike and hang with a tough, party crowd, the 15-year-old wasn't reported missing for several days after she vanished in the summer of 1981, and her mother refused to cooperate with investigators.

    That last article makes it seem as though the mother never really cooperated, even from day one. Sad. Was there a step-father in the picture? Maybe he harmed the girl or maybe the mother thinks he did.

    The body was previously believed to be that of Kim Marie Larrow, who disappeared from Wayne County’s Canton Township. Identification of the body is pending results of the facial reconstruction and DNA tests, police said.

    The body was exhumed earlier this month from an unmarked grave in a cemetery in Monroe County’s La Salle Township after doubts arose that it was that of the habitual runaway who went missing in 1981 at age 15, officers said.
    A body that was exhumed in Monroe County early this month is likely not that of a missing girl. Investigators say the body of the female washed ashore on Lake Erie in 1982.
    Police thought the body could have been that of a chronic runaway who disappeared when she was just 15. But now police say that's not the case after an analysis of teeth and bones has determined the body was that of a woman between 20 and 30.
    That still leaves this person exhumed unidentified. I hope that they can get an ID.

    The first annual Missing in Michigan Event was held on May 7th, 2011 at Ford Field in Detroit, MI. The slideshow was made to commemorate the families of the missing that attended the event.

    Kim is included.

    I agree with the above commenters, something sounds so not right with the mother telling family to "drop it" after her daughter went missing. Listening to that Evanescence song while thinking of Kim's case makes me cry - as well as think of another long standing case here in MD. In 2007, after being missing 31 years, a cousin of a 14 year old Pasadena, MD girl went to authorities to ask about her case, only to find out there was never anything filed with the police department on her. When the story broke and the media contacted her family, right away a certain relative of hers became defensive, talking about being "framed", "railroaded", "set up", etc. Even though MD has proved successful in prosecuting murders without bodies, it's now 4 years later, yet, this "person of interest", has not been brought up on charges and the girl is still unaccounted for 35 years after she went missing. There are those who believe if you never face justice in this life, it'll certainly catch up with you in the next, but I hate to hear about "persons of interest" who remain free to live their lives, after taking life from their victims - and in cases like these 2, refusing to give up the bodies, in order to end the years of agony and suffering caused to the missing persons loved ones left behind.

    Fed probe of 1976-77 child killings is urged

    The attorney for the mother of a girl believed to be a victim in the unsolved Oakland County child killings called Tuesday for the Department of Justice to take over the case he claims has been "fantastically bungled" by prosecutors and Michigan State Police.

    Detroit-based attorney Paul Hughes made the remarks in a news conference Tuesday at the Courtyard Marriott on Jefferson, one day after filing a $100 million federal lawsuit on behalf of Deborah Jarvis, the mother of Kristine Mihelich. Jarvis accused authorities of refusing to meet with families of the victims or provide them with details that could help identify the murderer.

    ~snip~

    He also has identified other possible victims, including Donna Serra, who was abducted Sept. 29, 1972, in St. Clair Shores; Kim Larrow, last seen in Canton Township on June 8, 1981; Kimberly King, who was taken from Warren on Sept. 16, 1979; and Jane Allan, abducted Aug. 8, 1976, in Royal Oak.

    Larrow's cousin, Robert Cooper, said Tuesday he hopes the confidential informant has some information to back it up, rather than conjecture.

    "It raises the awareness of Kim being missing and the possibility of being investigated at an even higher level," said Robert Cooper, a former Toledo police officer. "I'm very pleased with that."
