PONTIAC, Mich. (WJBK) — It’s a case that’s gone unsolved for more than three decades. Now a $100-million lawsuit has been filed by the mother of one of the victims in the Oakland County Child Killer Case.

Debbie Jarvis really put her trust in the law enforcement system believing that it would catch her daughter’s killer. She’s been waiting since 1977, so that’s why she’s hoping this lawsuit will finally bring her daughter justice.

“The system has not only failed Kris, but has failed all the victims of the monster that took our kids from us,” said Jarvis.

She read a prepared statement as she faced the media to explain why, after all this time, she’s filing a multimillion dollar lawsuit in an effort to help find the person responsible for her daughter’s murder.

Kristine Mihelich was only ten when she died.

“Tomorrow would’ve been Kris’ birthday, and for me it will always be her eleventh birthday,” Jarvis said.

The $100-million lawsuit filed in federal court names the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police. It alleges a conspiracy and cover up in the investigation of the abduction and murders of four children along the Woodward corridor back in the 1970s. In a bombshell, the lawsuit also raises a theory that the killer could have been associated in some way with law enforcement.

Those involved with the investigation claim the lawsuit has no merit.

“There is no basis in law. There’s no basis in fact. There’s not much that you can say aside from the fact that it’s bizarre. I think the sad thing about this is that, you know, you have a family and you have four families in the case in question and they’re grieving and they’ve been grieving for years,” said Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper.

“I think that, that is the attorney firing this bird shot for whatever reason. I don’t think it helps solve the case in any way, shape or form,” said Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard.

Paul Hughes is representing Jarvis. He claims a confidential informant came forward with evidence indicating there could be many more victims that were killed at the hands of the Oakland County Child Killer, including Donna Serra, Kim Larrow, Kimberly King and Jane Allen. All four were murdered around the same time frame.

In what some consider poor taste, a website has also been set up soliciting money from the public to fund the case. $1,500 will get you a copy of the investigation.

“I don’t work for the public and I can’t ask for U.S. tax dollars to pay for the efforts of this litigation, and that website is set up to help defray and pay back Debbie for the money that she’s put in and it will help fund this lawsuit,” said Hughes.

Michigan State Police would not comment on the lawsuit citing pending litigation.

Hughes is pushing for an independent investigation by the Department of Justice, although we’ve learned the FBI has been involved in this case for several years. In fact, they’re on the task force.

The prosecutor’s office plans to file court paperwork trying to get this lawsuit dismissed.

DETROIT (WXYZ) – Claims of new victims a secret source — and a $100 Million dollar lawsuit. It sounds like the making of a Hollywood murder mystery but thats the latest twist in the 36 year old Oakland County Child Killer Case.

Now weve learned that new information comes from a man who wont reveal his identity and hes someone 7 Action News Investigator Heather Catallo has spoken to many times.

Nobody seems to know who this man is. What we do know is that this source started contacting Catallo back in 2010 alleging that these murders were related to cult activity and pagan holidays – but 7 Action News never went with the story because hes provided absolutely no proof.

After decades of mystery, police still dont know who abducted and killed four children along the Woodward Corridor between 1976 and 1977.

Some families of the victims have waged a public battle for information from Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper.

Kristine Mihelich was the Oakland County Child Killers 3rd known victim — and now her mother is weighing in with a $100 Million dollar lawsuit filed in federal court.

The system has not only failed Kris but has failed all the victims of the monster that took our kids from us. Its time for Jessica Cooper to step aside and let the Department of Justice investigate these cases, said Deborah Jarvis.

At a press conference in Detroit, Debbie Jarvis and her attorney Paul Hughes revealed that their lawsuit is based on information from an unknown confidential source whos been nicknamed Bob.

Have you met him, Catallo asked Hughes.

I have never met him. I wouldnt know him if he was sitting in this room, said Hughes.

Do you know his real name, asked Catallo.

I dont know his real name, said Hughes.

Jarvis also said she did not know Bobs real name, nor has she met him.

Based on the material Hughes included in the lawsuit, its believed Bob is the same person who was contacting Catallo anonymously in 2010.

He said he could prove that there were more than just 4 victims of the Child Killer and Bob wrote up a detailed memo, alleging that the victims were abducted and their bodies were discovered on dates that were connected to Pagan holidays.

Bob claimed the killings were tied to satanic cult activity in metro Detroit. The problem was, Bob would never provide a name, or any information about himself, or a phone number so that we could verify what he was saying.

If he was some crazy dude, hed just be out there posting it all over. Or he would be turning the matter over to the local county prosecutor. He wanted one piece of information, essentially to confirm what he basically already knew, before he was going to put an individual out there as a suspect. And that, my friends, is integrity on his part. Thats all he wanted to verify before he put that information forward, said Hughes.

Are you sure he hasnt posted anything on the internet, asked Catallo. No, said Hughes.

In November of 2010, someone posted an Associated Press type article on a blog site. However its not an actual AP report. It does, however, match the memo the anonymous source sent to 7 Action News.

Hughes says Bob has information that ties in additional victims — young girls who vanished in the 70s. In the lawsuit he alleges theres an extremely high probability that the deaths of Donna Serra, Kim Larrow, Kimberly King, and Jane Allan, among others, are connected to the Oakland County Child Killer case.

But Hughes admitted he was not aware that specific forensic evidence dog hair and carpet fibers — that connect the four known victims.

One of the things the claims of a cover-up hinges on is the grand jury thats currently hearing testimony on this case. The attorney says an email from the secret source prompted the Oakland County Prosecutor to impanel the grand jury in less than a week.

Heres what we know about grand juries it takes a long time to put them together, and theres a lot of oversight. It doesnt happen in a week.

While they cannot legally discuss any case thats before the grand jury, the Oakland County Prosecutors Office is emphatic that they did not convene a grand jury just to keep this confidential source quiet.

And the Prosecutor herself is calling this lawsuit groundless and she says the familys grief is being exploited. Jessica Cooper also says Hughes could get punished by the court for filing a lawsuit with false information in it.

High ranking law enforcement officials tell 7 Action News, they did try to meet with this secret source back in 2010 but they say hes the one who never followed through with providing information.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard says there’s not a case more important to solve, and if anyone has information on the case, he guarantees it will be investigated.

Hughes says the anonymous source is willing to work with the Department of Justice in Washington, and Hughes has contacted Michigan’s senators to

ask the DOJ to intervene.

The FBI has already historically been part of the Oakland County Child Killer Task Force, and the FBI lab at Quantico has processed evidence in the case.
