DETROIT, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The most historic and unsolved serial killings in the United States include the Servant Girl Annihilator, Axe Man Murders, Zodiac Killer, I-45 Killer(s), and The Oakland County Child Killer.
A Press Conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 24, 2012 at the Detroit Renaissance Center, Courtyard by Marriott, 333 East Jefferson Ave, Detroit, MI 48226 by Attorney Paul Hughes representing the estate of murder victim Kristine Mihelich, and her mother Debbie Jarvis.
New developments, evidence, and suspects previously unknown to investigators shall be addressed. As well as concerns related to the handling of the investigation, Federal relief being sought, and requests for an independent investigation by the Department of Justice into several Serial Child Killings.
Known victims include Mark Stebbins, 12, of Ferndale, Jill Robinson, 12, of Royal Oak, Kristine Mihelich, 10, of Berkley, and Timothy King, 11, of Birmingham. Additional victims to these four shall be announced.
An 18-month delay in investigating new suspects and evidence occurred as a result of Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper's directives to investigators that have delayed justice for the victims and their families. The historic and recent handling of this investigation is the primary reason that a request is being made for an independent investigation by the DOJ outside the jurisdiction of Jessica Cooper.
New information implicates at least one person associated with law enforcement, more than three additional suspects, and a possible ongoing cover-up or conspiracy by law enforcement.
Jessica Cooper has refused every request by any of the victim's families to provide information that would have resulted in new suspects never known to law enforcement being investigated. The families continue to take issue with Jessica Cooper's refusal to meet or cooperate with them.
A website has been set up to help support this effort and provide updates as this effort progresses. The website address is: www.wepay.com/donations/serialkillers
