Late 1970's so called "Babysitter Killer" murders solved?
1970's mugshot of Busch
The murders of 4 children in Oakland County,MI who were carefully cleaned and had their clothes washed dried and ironed got their killer dubbed "The Babysitter Killer". Now thanks to the father of one of the victims we now know who more than likely killed them and maybe more. The first victim was Mark Stebbins,12 from Ferndale,MI Feb. 13,1976.His body was found in a parking lot 6 days later. The next victim was Jill Robinson,12 taken from Royal Oak on Dec 12,1976. Her body was found in Troy. The 3rd victim was Kristine Mihelich,10 who was taken from Berkley on Jan. 2,1977. The last victim was Timothy King 11 taken March 11,1977 from Birmingham. His body was found in a ditch near Livonia. It was his father that learned the identity of the killer through a freedom of information lawsuit out of which he recived the case files. It is clear from those files that a local pedophile named Christopher Busch was the killer of these 4 children and maybe more. He also was convicted on 4 occasion of molestation. He came from a well to do family who paid his way out of trouble. He failed a polygraph test about the murders in 1978 and soon after shot himself to death. The murders then stopped. The county wants to charge Timmy's father $11,000 for the case file. The court will have something to say about that. The living siblings of the alleged killer have said they will give DNA samples if they can have witness protection!? WTH! MOO. I pray that that family's DNA will bring closure for the families of the victims. Thank you Mr. Barry King for your tireless search for the truth about what happened to your beloved son and 3 other children. http://www.detnews.com/article/20101228/METRO02/12280367/1411/METRO02/Pedophile-allegedly-linked-to-%E2%80%9977-slaying

At the Florida Industrial School For Boys in Marinna,FL atrocities took place from at least the 1940's through the 1960's which until recently were kept hidden inside the victims. One victim started a website and support system for these boys now men who were beaten beyond my comprehension. Thanks to this brave man Roger Dean Kiser author of The White House Boys: An American Tragedy I am able to tell you their story. Thank you Mr.Kiser and all the brave White House Boys for allowing this blog to be written. Many of these boys were not sent to the reform school for any crime,they simply weren't wanted or were orphans. They were taken to a building at the school behind the mess hall called the White House and were told to lay on a filthy mattress on a bed frame with springs. They then had to hold onto the metal bed frame and bite the nasty pillow while they were beat with a leather strap that had a metal strip inside for reinforcement. The wounds were horre…
