Michigan law enforcement looking for remains in a 1979 cold case!

    The body of a young girl who disappeared nearly 40 years ago -- and the remains of perhaps four other victims -- could be uncovered Tuesday as authorities continue a desperate dig at a vacant Michigan farm that officials believe may have been a burial ground for a potential serial killer.

    A spokesman for a task force led by the Warren Police Department confirmed to Fox News that cops are searching a property in Macomb Township for the remains of Kimberly King, a 12-year-old who was reported missing in September 1979.

    Decades-long hunt for missing girls leads to Michigan farm: police

    Police searched a former farm outside Detroit on Tuesday for the remains of up to six teenage girls missing for decades, believing they may have been killed by a now 68-year-old man serving a life sentence for the murder of another girl, police said.

    Investigators were digging in a wooded area where the man, Arthur Ream, led officials 10 years ago to the body of a girl that he was found guilty of murdering, said William Dwyer, commissioner of the Warren Police Department.

    Dwyer said information from several people, including Ream, led them to believe that the bodies of four to six teenage girls may be buried there.

    It might take "two or three days" to determine if bodies were there, Dwyer said in a Tuesday phone interview.

    If their remains are located, Ream could face charges related to their disappearances, Dwyer said. The girls were aged 12 to 17 when they disappeared in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

    Ream is already serving a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole, Michigan Department of Corrections spokesman Chris Gautz said on Tuesday.

    A killer led police to a girl’s body in a shallow grave. Six more may be nearby.
    By Eli Rosenberg and Cleve R. Wootson Jr.
    May 9 at 4:42 PM

    To investigators, Arthur Ream was always tight-lipped about any connection he had to the disappearance of half a dozen girls who went missing outside Detroit in the 1970s and 1980s.

    But to other inmates, authorities say, Ream was a prison cell braggart who spoke frequently about the girls he’d killed and the shallow graves he buried them in — mysteries that have flummoxed investigators for nearly four decades.

    Investigators who’ve pieced together strings from some of those other inmates have reopened the cold cases of six young girls. This week, they’ve been using earthmoving equipment to find the remains of the girls in Macomb Township, roughly 20 miles northeast of Detroit.

    "You want to be a man about it?" Bill Dwyer said. "Let's help the families out. Give them some closure. That's what it's all about."

    Ream is no stranger to the area. Following his 2008 conviction for killing Cindy Zarzycki, he led investigators to her remains, which had been buried there for more than 20 years.

    The current search area spans about 24 acres. Searchers are trying to narrow that down to a more manageable size, police said.

    Police interviewed Ream a few months ago after fellow prisoners said he boasted about killing four to six other people. He later failed a lie-detector test, Dwyer said.

    Ream, who turned 69 on Wednesday, was sentenced in 1998 to 15 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct and taking indecent liberties with a child less than two years earlier.

    Police are digging in woods northeast of Detroit near where the body of a 13-year-old girl who went missing in 1986 was found more than a decade ago. In 2008, Arthur Ream, pictured, led police to the area and the remains of Cindy Zarzycki who disappeared. Zarzycki had been dating Ream's son at the time of her disappearance. Arthur Ream was convicted of her murder and is serving life in prison.

    (Michigan Department of Corrections)
    Attorney R. Timothy Kohler, who was appointed by a judge to represent him in his 2008 murder trial, said his former client is "not a likable guy" and not healthy.

    "He smoked excessively and was overweight. I didn't want to particularly hear his story, other than my sense that he was denying any allegation of intentionally murdering" Cindy.

    "He claimed his innocence. He never told me that he did anything. Frankly, I don't think I was interested in knowing that," Kohler said.

    Cindy was last seen on April 20, 1986, after going to a Dairy Queen in Eastpointe, a mostly blue-collar suburb north of Detroit.

    Police end dig for remains of 7 missing Michigan girls
    By Mike Householder
    MAY 15, 2018

    Police looking for the remains of up to seven girls who have been missing for decades stopped digging Tuesday in suburban Detroit, suspending a multi-day effort while they decide whether to search elsewhere in Michigan or resume the excavation in roughly the same area.

    Authorities repeatedly have said they're confident they will solve the cold cases, raising the hopes of anxious family members who are desperate to learn what happened to their loved ones. The timeout could last a week, Warren Mayor James Fouts told The Associated Press.

    Well that's disappointing. They were so confident. Hope for 7 families. Didn't find a dang thing. :(
