New DNA Evidence in Oakland County Killings
(2007-08-23)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Advances in D-N-A technology are opening up new
leads in the more than three-decade-old Oakland County child killer
case.
Michigan State Police Detective Sergeant Garry Gray says
investigators have found new evidence from clothing belonging to
one or more of the four children slain over a 13-month period
beginning in 1976.
Gray says the evidence is in addition to a hair sample taken off
one of the victims.
The new sample will be compared to D-N-A of 12 primary suspects.
Police had announced two years ago they were reinvestigating the
deaths of 12-year-olds Mark Stebbins and Jill Robinson, 10-year-old
Kristine Mihelich, and 11-year-old Timothy King. They had been
suffocated between February 1976 and March 1977.
