GRAND BLANC, MI (WLNS) - Authorities in Grand Blanc are investigating after a construction crew digging a basement unearthed parts of a buried car.
Pieces of a blue AMC Gremlin were found and police say it could be tied to an Oakland County child-killer case.
That type of car is connected to the killings in the 1970s. Between February 1976 and March 1977 four young children were abducted and killed in Oakland County. A serial killer abducted and held Mark Stebbins, Kristine Mihelich, Jill Robinson and Timothy King against their will for several days, before murdering and placing them on display on streets throughout Metro Detroit.
The Gremlin has long been associated with the child killing spree, since a witness said she had seen a boy resembling Timmy King, the final victim, talking to a man in a parking lot of the drugstore where King was last seen alive.
She told police the man was in a blue Gremlin, and that led local police to question every owner of a blue Gremlin in Oakland County.
According to State Police Lt. Mike Shaw, that suspect vehicle was never located.
"When it first came out of the hole, it was actually a large metal clump of what looked like different vehicles parts, bicycles, scrap metals – you name it, it was kind of in the hole," said Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw. "One of the things that we did notice was a car door that was pink. There was another vehicle in there and other vehicle parts that was able to be identified by some of auto theft investigators as part of a Gremlin.
Authorities are now trying to determine if a chop shop was ever located on the lot. Police also say the area could have been a farmland or a dumping ground and that they are unsure at this time if the site is a crime scene.
"We just want to do our due diligence to make sure that everything is the way it's supposed to be," Shaw said. "If we find out that this was a junkyard, then we'll know that."
The latest development in the case that has stumped investigators for decades is happening in the area of I-75 and Saginaw Street in Grand Blanc, south of Flint.
The case remains unsolved. Tuesday's discovery could be a major lead.
