Summary
"Four children were abducted and murdered outside of Detroit during the winters of 1976 and 1977, their bodies eventually dumped in snowbanks around the city. J. Reuben Appelman was only six years old when the murders began and even evaded an abduction attempt during that same period, fuelling a lifelong obsession with the Oakland County Child Killings. Autopsies showed that the victims had been reportedly held with care. And yet, with equal care, their bodies had been groomed postmortem, scrubbed free of evidence. There were few leads, and equally few suspects. When the abductions mysteriously stopped, a task force operating on one of the largest manhunt budgets in history shut down without an arrest. Although no more murders occurred, Detroit remained haunted. Overlaid upon the author's own history with violence, The Kill Jar tells the story of Appelman's investigation into buried leads, child pornography rings, and corruption saturating Detroit's most notorious serial killer case."--Back cover
