Construction workers in Michigan have potentially blown the Oakland County Child Killer case wide open after unearthing a blue AMC Gremlin while they were digging out a basement in a subdivision. The serial killer was suspected to have driven a car matching that description during his spree in the late 1970s.
The Oakland County Child Killer was a monster of monsters. Not only did he go about doing the things that serial killers normally do, he would do it to children as young as ten years old. Of his four confirmed victims, three were either strangled or smothered. One other murder is suspected of being the work of the Child Killer.
The Killer was suspected of driving a blue AMC Gremlin with a white side stripe, after a witness reported seeing a boy that matched the description of his last victim, Timothy King, talking to a man in such a vehicle. Authorities would later go on to question every single Gremlin owner in Oakland County, Michigan, but nothing turned up, and the Gremlin was never found.
Suspects in the case included everyone from notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy to a man named Lamborgine.
Today ABC7 ACTION NEWS (yes that's its real name) reported that a construction crew digging a basement for a new subdivision located on a former farm found a blue AMC Gremlin with a white stripe, buried underground and now mostly in pieces. The Michigan State Police said that other vehicles were found at the construction site, but forensic teams have been working all night on the Gremlin.
