For over a year, beginning in 1976, children in Oakland County Michigan weren't safe. In a thirteen month period starting on the afternoon of February 15, 1976 four children were abducted and killed in a ritualistic fashion. These victims consisted of two boys and two girls, aged from 10 to 12 years. They were all killed by a different method and treated differently during their captivity, but despite these discrepancies in method and treatment, police are convinced these murders (and possibly more) were committed by the same perpetrator because of startling similarities between all the victims. Despite the passing of forty years, no one has been arrested and the Oakland County Child Killer, also known as The Babysitter Killer, is still at large.
