THE DARKEST WINTER: THE CHILDREN OF THE SNOW
In 1976, the first of four children are abducted and murdered in the suburbs of Detroit. After more than 30 years the families of the four murdered children and Detroiters like J. Reuben Appelman are determined to find the Oakland County Child Killer.
This series of Michigan area unsolved cases is also known as the Oakland County Child Killings of 1976.
The investigation into these cold cases according to The Children of the Snow has never been closed. The original detectives who worked so hard had to retire and new ones have taken up the investigation. DNA which were "just letters in the alphabet" in 1976 is now playing a huge role in trying to find exactly who was responsible for these terrible crimes.
Closure for the families has been impossible and they still carry that immense heartache of this nightmare.
This case is so convoluted with many people possibly connected to these abductions. I watched the series twice to absorb the details. Check it out on Hulu
