10 Horrific Facts About The Oakland County Child Killer

10 The Murder Of Mark Stebbins

Twelve-year-old Mark Stebbins would become the first official victim of the Oakland County Child Killer. The Ferndale, Michigan, resident was last seen alive leaving an American Legion hall on Sunday afternoon, February 15, 1976. Stebbins reportedly told his mother that he planned on going home in order to watch a movie on television. When Mark failed to turn up at home by 11:00 PM, his panicked mother called the police and reported her son missing. While on the phone with dispatch, Stebbins’s mother described her child as wearing a blue hooded parka, a pair of blue jeans, black rubber boats, and a red sweatshirt. Four days later on February 19, Stebbins’s body was found at approximately 11:45 AM by a businessman in Southfield, Michigan. The man at first thought that the body was a mannequin but, upon closer inspection, saw that it was the murdered corpse of a child. A forensic team would later declare that Stebbins’s killer had sexually assaulted the boy and bound him prior to strangling him to death.[1] An eyewitness provided police with information that detailed how Stebbins’s body had been placed in the parking lot sometime before 9:30 AM that morning.

9 The Murder Of Jill Robinson

Jill Robinson, like Mark Stebbins, was also just 12 when she died. However, unlike Mark, Jill went missing after she ran away from home. Following an argument with her mother on Wednesday, December 22, 1976, Jill packed a backpack and ran away. It would later be revealed that Jill and Karol Robinson had quarreled over mundane household chores. The day after Jill ran away, her bicycle was discovered behind a store located on Main Street in Royal Oak, Michigan. On the day after Christmas, Jill’s snow-covered corpse was found along Interstate 75 in Troy, Michigan. Investigators located Jill’s backpack and noted that it still contained her personal items. Whatever had caused the murder, robbery was not the motive. The killer had blown off half of Jill’s face with a 12-gauge shotgun. Jill’s resting place turned out to be within sight of a Troy Police Department station. An eyewitness would also come forward to report that a blue Pontiac LeMans had been parked near the victim at around 4:30 AM that morning.[2] Surprisingly, this lead was never really followed up on by police.

8 The Murder Of Kristine Mihelich

Kristine Mihelich has the unenviable distinction of being the Oakland County Child Killer’s youngest victim. When she went missing on January 2, 1977, Mihelich, a resident of Berkley, Michigan, was only ten years old. Witnesses last saw Mihelich alive at 3:00 PM on January 2 at a 7-Eleven store located on Twelve Mile Road in Berkley. Mihelich reportedly bought a magazine and then left the store. Her mother would not report her missing until 6:00 PM that night. At some point between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM, Kristine was abducted while walking home from the 7-Eleven. During the 19 days that Kristine was missing, her mother, Deborah Ashcroft, went on local television and begged Kristine’s captor to let her daughter go. The family’s neighbors also raised $17,000 in the hopes that this money could be used as a ransom payment for Kristine’s release. Tragically, Kristine would never be seen alive again. On January 21, her body was found in the snow on Bruce Lane in Franklin Village, Michigan. US Postal Service letter carrier Jerome Wozny found the body.[3] Kristine had been smothered to death and left fully clothed in the winter snow. Her killer had also placed Kristine’s hands on her chest in a disgusting mockery of the typical funeral pose. An official autopsy would reveal the shocking truth that Kristine’s captor had only killed her less than 24 hours before her corpse was discovered.

7 The Murder Of Timothy King

The last official victim of the Oakland County Child Killer was 11-year-old Timothy King of Birmingham, Michigan. King was the youngest in a family of four (three boys and one girl). On March 16, 1977, Timothy was home alone because his sister was on a date, his older brothers were busy, and his parents were out to dinner with one of his father’s clients. Mother Marion King later told the press that Timothy was sometimes left home alone, and on March 16, his parents only planned to be gone for a short time. At around 7:30 PM, Timothy left his house carrying his skateboard. He planned on grabbing some candy at a drug store located on Maple Road and then heading somewhere to skateboard. An hour later, two eyewitnesses saw Timothy leave the drug store and walk out into a parking lot that abutted a supermarket. There, the witnesses said a man with long, shaggy hair approached Timothy. The pair entered the man’s car, which one eyewitness said looked like a blue AMC Gremlin with a white racing stripe on the side. During the night of Timothy’s abduction, his older brother Christopher walked through their neighborhood with a baseball bat hoping to catch and throttle his younger brother’s kidnapper. Timothy’s body was finally discovered six days later on a side road in the town of Livonia. An autopsy revealed that Timothy had been sexually assaulted and suffocated just six hours before his body was discovered in the snow. The killer had neatly washed and pressed Timothy’s clothes prior to killing him and had fed him fried chicken. This latter fact revealed that the killer kept track of the news coverage of his crimes, for Timothy’s parents had pleaded with the kidnapper in a newspaper letter to feed him Kentucky Fried Chicken.[4]

the reason rootlesswriter came in contact with me is that i compared this

Weeks after the death of Timothy King, psychiatrist Dr. Bruce Danto received a handwritten confession from a man named “Allen.” The letter claimed that Allen was the unwilling accomplice of his roommate, a man named “Frank.”[10] Allen claimed that he and Frank drove around in Frank’s AMC Gremlin looking for child victims in the affluent neighborhoods of Oakland County. Allen said that Frank was motivated to kill wealthy children because he wanted their parents to suffer for sending him to Vietnam. Dr. Danto was convinced by this letter and arranged to meet Allen at a bar. Allen never showed, and he never wrote to Dr. Danto again.

this allan letter writer is also the jonbenet ramsey ransom note author.

these crimes and others listed of course demolish a lot of claims about what RDI claim jonbenet's intruder killer would NOT do.

one new thing i learned

For a time, some investigators wondered whether infamous American serial killer John Wayne Gacy was involved in the Michigan murders. Gacy was in Michigan between 1976 and 1977, and one eyewitness to the abduction of Timothy King described a suspect who bore an eerie resemblance to Gacy. However, DNA tests carried out in 2013 ruled out Gacy as a suspect. The last major suspect in the Oakland County case, Theodore Lamborgine, was actually taken to court by the Stebbins family in October 2007. The family accused Lamborgine of kidnapping, sexually assaulting, and murdering Mark Stebbins. The family sought a wrongful death conviction and $25,000 in damages. The year before, Lamborgine admitted to being involved in a child pornography ring and sexually assaulting several young boys. Lamborgine refused to take a polygraph concerning the Oakland County murders, and in 2012, DNA testing ruled out Lamborgine as the man responsible for killing King and Stebbins.

apparently they have some sort of DNA in this case, not stated what type of DNA, as semen was never mentioned i suspect it comes from hair or even touch DNA.

presumably it doesn't match the DNA found on Jonbenet or else it would be major news.

a good question for RDI, suppose they find via touch DNA on these victim's clothing in the same exact location as found in Jonbenet. would that DNA have value or is it some factory worker sneeze?

If you only knew the POWER of the Daubert side
