Jill Robinson

Jill Robinson, 12, of Royal Oak, MI, was last seen alive on December 22, 1976. She and her mother had an argument over making dinner rolls; Jill went to her room, packed clothes and a blanket and left on her bicycle. When her mother first reported her missing the police treated it as a runaway situation. Four days later Jill’s body was found on the shoulder of Interstate 75 in Troy, MI. Police believe she was held for four days before she was murdered by a 16-gauge shotgun blast to her face. There was no sign of sexual assault.

Jill is believed to be the second victim of the Oakland County Child Killer.
