Cover Up

Jan 10, 2011

Through the efforts of the victim’s families and at great expense, the “unsolved” Oakland County Child Abductions and Murders of 1976-77 have finally been solved–30 years too late.

Family of three of the dead children worked together to expose the cover up. They say that the Michigan State Police knew “the truth and [have been] withholding it due to influence by important and wealthy individuals who believe that the law does not apply to them.”

On the front page of the Detroit News on 12/28/2010, family members released State Police documents they obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

These records, coupled with multiple disappearances of key physical evidence, point to a cover up.

And they also point to Christopher Busch–the youngest son of a prominent General Motors Financial Executive–as the killer.

The records clearly show that law enforcement officials had enough information to charge Busch BEFORE the 4th child was killed–but did nothing.

No, worse–they released him out on the street to kill again. After that, Chris Busch committed suicide in November 1978. In his bedroom closet, police found bloody ropes and a drawing of the first victim.

When a reporter asked the father of the 4th murdered child if it had been worth the $11,000 that the State Police charged him for these documents, the father replied: “It was Tim’s college money.”

The brutal and horrendous crimes were reinforced by another horrible crime–the police cover up. In this society where money and social position rules, the lives of four murdered children counted as nothing.
