(WXYZ) - We’ve heard from him before, but this time a mysterious tipster claims the Oakland County Child Killer not only had accomplices, but that the violent crew may be responsible for as many as 60 murders in Michigan and other states.
Today 7 Action News Investigator Bill Proctor spoke by phone with the tipster, who only identifies himself as “Bob”. Proctor asked him what proof he is offering for his claims.
Bob refuses to present himself to reporters in person, or identify his group of investigators.
Bob offered no proof. But this is the first time that he has named the people he believes were murdered by 8, possibly as many as 13, men between 1969 and the early 90s.
In fact, he says the suspects randomly chose their victims near American Legion Halls located near intersections in the cities where the teens were abducted.
Their bodies were later placed in locations where they were easily discovered or dumped so their discovery would be delayed.
From Oscoda, where two girlfriends ages 15 and 16 went missing in October of 1969, to the four child killings identified with decades of investigation, to victims found in Ohio, Nevada and California, Bob gives the names of 14 victims.
In one case, a man confessed to the murder, but Bob says he may be an innocent but disturbed man.
Bob has turned his document over to federal officials.
But again, it’s also been turned over to Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper, who has dismissed Bob as misguided at best.
