I’m Barry King, devoted father and lawyer, in pursuit of solving The Oakland County Child Killer Case for my beloved son, Tim and the rest of the victims. The Oakland County Child Killer (OCCK) is an unidentified serial killer or killers that could add up to 15 or more individuals involved. He, she or they are responsible for the murders of four or more children, two girls and two boys, in Oakland County, Michigan, United States in 1976 and 1977. A father’s Story will follow a timeline of videos, blog posts, statements, and information regarding the case in hopes that someone will come forward with missing information.
On February 15, 1976, Mark Stebbins, 12, was abducted in Ferndale MI, his body was found four days later in Southfield, MI. On December 22, 1976 Jill Robinson, 12, was abducted in Royal Oak, MI. Three days later her body was found near Royal Oak, MI. On January 2, 1977, Kristine Mihelich, 10, was abducted in Berkley, MI, 19 days later her body was found in Franklin Village, MI. On March 16, 1977 Tim King, son of Barry King, author of A Father’s Story, was abducted near Birmingham, MI, six days later his body was found in Livonia, MI.
This series of unfortunate events is staggering and instilled fear and hysteria throughout Southeastern MI and the nation. Local and nation-wide news channels took a fast interest in the story where the OCCK case was featured in People Magazine, Time Magazine, Good Housekeeping, The Daily Tribune, The Detroit News, The Detroit Free Press, The Oakland Press, The Traverse City Record Eagle, Detroit Monthly, and The Birmingham Eccentric. It was the story of the year in both the Detroit Free press and the Detroit News in 1977.
There have been many leads and arrests throughout the effort of solving this case, many of the suspects are now deceased, or in custody. However, the case remains open with no one serving time for the murders of four innocent children in Oakland County, MI. Please follow my blog, A Father’s Story in hopes of filling in the missing links of any useful information to solving this gruesome unsolved mystery.by
