    This case makes my blood boil!
    BS is in and out of jail, creating havoc on humankind in the area, and he skates away each and every time.
    Well, this is the kind of thing we read about too often here on WS.

    He will end up killing someone else (likely a woman) and everyone will look at his record and be astonished that he was even out walking the streets.

    I've only been following this case for a little over two years, and I get physically upset over it, often. This poor family had been yanked around for DECADES!
    Now that "Erik's Army" (an INCREDIBLE group of people) has finally gotten them to properly investigate it and turn it over to prosecutors, they are at another brick wall in getting Getting to file charges.
    It is WAY BEYOND time to arrest, charge and LOCK these people up!

    Last I heard this year the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department handed the case over too Chief prosecuting attorney, Jeff Getting. However Getting or his office has yet to approve the charging request's from KCSD. It may because they are waiting for the Dalton case to be over with.

    Thank you for sharing the video dotr/

    I really feel that justice is coming soon and these monsters are going to pay!
    these Evil people live their life like nothing happened ,some of them have families and regular lives while Eric's family lived in endless agony , I want to see the face of each one of the murderers when they hear the knock on their door , in that moment their
    smile will erase. I hope they will suffer Extremely for the murder of Eric
    and for the pain they caused to Eric's Family.

    I hope you are right. My dad was raised in Vicksburg, his entire family still reside in Vicksburg, as a child, I heard a lot of chit chat about this case, when we visited Vicksburg. Crazy to read about it after all these years. Justice is past due. Moo

    Justice should have happened so many years ago but at least there is real hope now that something is going to happen and they will punished .I am curious to know what do you think was the motive? I tend to believe it was something regarding Eric and Amber and jealousy of one of the murderers, Amber Defends the killers.

    Crime Wire Investigates the Murder of Erik Cross
    [​IMG]
    "Two 2011 episodes of the Crime Wire radio show feature the cold case investigation into the 1983 murder of Erik Stirling Cross. To learn more, friend Erik Stirling Cross on Facebook or type Erik Stirling Cross into an Internet search engine. The first show was aired on February 15, 2011. The second show was aired on March 1, 2011. Erik's story starts about halfway through the first show. The entire March show is about Erik's story."

    I have no theory, really have not thought about this case much, haven’t been to Vicksburg lately, either.
    Your theory is as good as any, imo.

    ETA: very weird when we stumble upon a case we have familiarity with. MI cases (especially western MI) catch my attention. Often times names or locations make me go “whoa, I know him/her, I have been there....”.

    Ima tell ya...Erik has an ARMY behind him, there is no doubt about that! If justice could be brought by hard work from incredible advocates, this case would have been over long ago. Erik's Army are at it daily, making noise to those who have the power to do the right thing, raising awareness, keeping tabs on the legal binds of the Core (and that is no easy feat!) postering, and postering, and postering. NEVER LETTING THIS REST. It's slow going, but it's going. Thank-you to Erik's Army. They are the kind of team I'd want on my side if seeking justice. xo

    Bumping. I’ve read about this for years. Erik looked almost identical to my childhood ‘first love’

    "Melissa Hatfield stood in a front of a couple dozen people on Kimball Lake Drive Sunday afternoon, talking about safety, road rules and a single mission. "As long as they're thinking about Erik, we win,” she said. “Erik wins.”

    Hatfield is an organizer for Erik's Army. The group was created to keep the memory of Erik Cross, and his death, in the public eye.

    The group, adorned in purple shirts to represent Cross’s favorite color, holds the “Walk Erik Home” march along Y Avenue each year. Their route follows the same path Cross took as he walked home from a party in June of 1983. The next morning, Cross’s father found his son’s body dumped outside of their family home."
