WHO KILLED THESE CHILDREN!!!First things first. The odds of anyone getting away with murder are GREATLY reduced any time more than one person is involved. People just naturally seem to like to run their mouths. They brag to friends, unburden their souls, death bed confessions, get drunk and flap their jibbs and etc.... Further increasing the odds against it being more than one perp would be the nature of pedophiles, which is that they keep on offending, which means they are increasingly likely to get caught for another, different crime, and spill their guts to get some kind of deal. Also, assuming these multiple sickos were pedophiles, why in hell would they take the enormous risk of placing the bodies in highly visible, populated locations? Hell, wasn't one of the kids dropped off close to a police station? Who ever heard of a ring of pedophiles taking all of those chances so they could taunt the cops? All of the pedophiles I've ever heard of didn't want the cops to know they even existed. No, if these kids were taken by a ring of perverts, neither the children nor their bodies would have ever been seen again. Furthermore, pedophilia as a motive becomes even more unlikely because the entire community was on hyper alert when Kris and Tim were abducted. If molestation were the motive, why wouldn't the perverts just go somewhere else (that wasn't on guard) and grab some kids there, as it wouldn't have been so risky for them? So, it looks like these crimes were committed by one person, who was not motivated by sex. What then, does the evidence say about motive? It seems that it was nothing personal against the kids as they didn't appear to suffered physical mistreatment while they were alive, nor were they "posed" in any kind of degrading fashion. If we take away as a motive sex, revenge, kidnap for ransom, murder for inheritance and etc., looks like our killer was trying to make some kind of statement to society.Since there was no "Political Manifesto" or anything else left with the children, the killer's message to Society must have been very personal to the killer and may have made sense to him alone. The twisted, distorted emotional thinking involved was as unique to this killer as was his own warped psychological make up. He saw himself as being a failed member of a well to do, respected and accomplished family. College drop out, washing dishes, just dumped by his only girl friend up until that time... He just wasn't measuring up! All of this was taking place on a faulty mental/emotional foundation indeed. You see, his father was distant and emotionally remote, was overly critical and more concerned with appearances than presiding over a nurturing, supportive household. His family was middle class, but the area was upper middle class to out and out rich. He let the kids know that they came from line of illustrious achievers, and were expect to do the family name proud. But wait, there's more! His mom was nuts. Certifiably. Who knows what impact she added to his turmoil during his formative childhood years. I'm sure it was a lot and it wasn't good. So, here we have our suspect, rejected by his father, dumped by his girl, rejected by society (Couldn't even find a decent job) washing dishes. No wonder this creep was mad at the world. He figured it was the whole system of rich snobs and upper class elite types that rigged the social/economic system against poor, smart good guys like him who weren't born with a silver thingy in their mouth. He was sick of getting screwed around by " the man" (Society), and being insignificant. It just wasn't fair! But, how to fight back? That was the question. He had no money, no influence, no army, nothing. When, suddenly it hit him; THEIR CHILDREN. The children were the one vulnerability he could exploit in his effort to strike back at Society for the raw deal he was getting. In his own twisted mind, he may have figured that since life was painful and sucked, he would really be doing the kids a favor by saving them from living a life sure to be full of disappointment, frustration and pain, by killing them. Perhaps our killer was not only smacking down Society, as may be evidenced by the fact that the killer had two boys and two girls as siblings in his own family, as if to say that on a subconscious level, he was symbolically destroying his own family, (With Society as a whole representing his father). So our suspect not only has the only motive that makes sense and fits the evidence, he actually has ancillary reinforcing motives. But wait, there's yet even more!!! As an additional Gigantic Motive and Big Time Pay Off was the fact that our killer was no longer an insignificant cipher in the crowd, Suddenly, HE MATTERED!!! HE was the most important person in the world for a whole lot of people. Like a God who held the power of Life and Death! He stopped killing for two reasons; #1 He had finished making his statement. #2 He almost got caught and since he was not motivated by sex, he had no need to continue.

As another year of waiting and hoping begins for the families as well as the communities who have not forgotten, I respectfully ask everyone who is interested in these cases to renew your integrity, bury your bruised egos, and put a little elbow grease into investigating and solving these crimes. The joy and elation that will come from that will outweigh the negative. Trust me, the pain and suffering the families have endured have pooled and meshed. Start now as Mark's anniversary approaches.-Mark last saw his Mother at approximately 12:25 p.m. at The American Legion Hall at 9 mile and Livernois in Ferndale. According to Ruth Stebbins on the radio tapes, Mark had asked her for money and she said no because he already had his allowance. Per Ruth, he didn’t seem mad, he just said okay and that he was going home to watch a movie. At 7:15 Ruth called home and Mark was not there. When she got home just before 9:00 p.m. Mark was still not home and she said " I could tell he had not been home since we all left for the Hall." She said she would wait one more hour and then call the police. *Note: There were a lot of people at the American Legion Hall that day,did you see something? Do you remember who was there to fix the refrigeration? It was on a Sunday,so it most likely was a member or a friend of a member...think about it....think hard!! Also, does anyone remember the man who offered to give Mark money to buy and Ice Cream treat....He did not accept the money,which upset the man sitting at the bar...
