For the past several days cops have been excavating a farm in Michigan outside of Detroit, where they think several longtime missing girls are buried. The property used to be owned by Arthur Nelson Ream, who is currently serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of Cynthia Jocelyn Zarzycki.
Cindy was 13 when she disappeared in 1986. Her boyfriend, Scott Ream, was Arthur Ream’s son. Arthur told Cindy he was going to have a surprise party for Scott’s birthday, and invited her to come. She brought a mixtape to give to Scott. But there was no party; it was all an excuse for Arthur to get her into his car.
In 2008, Arthur lead investigators to Cindy’s body, buried in a shallow grave along the Clinton River in Macomb Township, Michigan. Well, apparently after his imprisonment he started talking about some other murders he allegedly committed.
The other possible victims (all from Michigan) include:
- Cynthia Coon, 13, missing from Washtenaw County since January 19, 1970
- Nadine Jean O’Dell, 16, missing from Inkster since August 16, 1974
- Kimberly Alice King, 12, missing from Warren since September 16, 1979
- Kim Marie Larrow, 13, missing from Canton since June 8, 1981
- Kellie Marie Brownlee, 17, missing from Novi since May 20, 1982
