From February 1976 to March 1977, the Metro Detroit area was gripped with fear as children began disappearing, then turning up dead. Although the first two murders weren't connected, police knew they had a serial killer on their hands when a third victim turned up shortly after the second murder.
The unknown culprit was eventually nicknamed the "Oakland County Child Killer," but their true identity has never been determined. Instead, there's only speculation as to who murdered Mark Stebbins, Jill Robinson, Kristine "Kris" Mihelich, and Timothy "Tim" King.
While some believe the man who killed these children died decades ago, others still hope that there will be a resolution in this horrific cold case.
