Arthur Ream bragged to inmates about killing 4-6 girls, failed polygraph.
Wednesday marks day three of digging for clues in Macomb Township.
Investigators brought in more equipment Tuesday to the wooded area along the North Branch Clinton River near 23 Mile Road and North Avenue.
It’s the same field where 13-year-old Cindy Zarzycki’s remains were found after her killer led investigators to the spot in 2008. Arthur Ream killed Zarzycki when she was just 13 years old in 1986.
Police provided an update on the ongoing search on Wednesday at 1:15 p.m. – You can rewatch it below.
Officials confirmed they have found no remains during this week’s dig, but hope to recover remains as the dig continues. Police said there is “probable cause” to believe the site is a graveyard.
Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said there is “no question” that the area is the grave site for Kimberly King, who disappeared in 1979.
Police also confirmed that Arthur Ream is the main suspect. Dwyer said Ream bragged to other inmates about killing 4-6 other girls and then ended up failing a polygraph test when questioned by detectives.
Dwyer also said officials have recovered something that makes them “cautiously optimistic” that they will eventually recover remains. He wouldn’t specify what that find was.
Now authorities are working in that same area in connection to three other cold cases that may be connected to Ream.
