Arch Sloan was first identified to the King family on July 17, 2012 when the Oakland County Prosecutor publicly requested information on his possible involvement in the murders. The Task Force had obtained mDNA evidence indicating the similarities between hairs found on Mark Stebbins, the first victim, Tim King and a hair found in the car of Sloan. However, the mDNA match was not to Sloan but apparently some passenger in his car. On August 29, 2012 Oakland County Deputy Sheriff, Gary Miller advised me that the request for information came from his office and did not originate in the Prosecutor’s office.
The King family has always encouraged the Sloan investigation and is disappointed that for over 6 years no one has identified the source of these hairs. The Task Force recently contacted me concerning the Sloan investigation and I do not intend to present any further statement at this time. However, sometime before I finish this Story I may file an amendment to Chapter 32.by
