I met a woman tonight who is interested in paranormal activity and she let me know that the book "The Michigan Murders" by Edward Keyes has been reissued. Not sure if some of the author's errors have been corrected... but it is still a pretty accurate depiction of what life was like around Ypsilanti between 1969-1971.

With a new prologue by Mardi Link and a new epilogue by Laura James. The true story of the savage coed killings—by the boy who could have lived next door!

Southeastern Michigan was rocked in the late 1960s by the terrifying serial murders of young women, whose bodies were dumped in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. In each case, few clues were left at the scene, and six separate police agencies were unable to end the horror. Then, almost by accident, a break came.

The suspect: John Norman Collins, a young, quiet, all-American boy.
Collins was caught, went to trial, and, on August 19, 1970, was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment with no possibility of parole. He is now in his sixties and is serving his sentence in Marquette, Michigan.
