Final resting place?
Arthur Ream is already in prison for rape and murder. Is he also a serial killer?
Convicted in 2008, Arthur Ream is currently serving life for the 1986 murder of his son’s girlfriend, 13- year old Cindy Zarzycki. It seems his big mouth and a prison snitch might solve anywhere between four and six cold cases.
Ream, a murderer with a self- confessed interest in underage girls, is alleged to have admitted to several similar murders. Investigators have begun searching for the remains of as many as six teenage girls said to have been buried by Ream in the vicinity of Michigan’s Macomb County.
According to a fellow convict, Ream bragged about the murders while already serving life for Cindy Zarzycki’s murder. Having taken police to Cindy’s grave, he received a life sentence. The area currently being searched is near to where Ream buried Cindy’s body, although Ream has denied being a serial killer. He’s also demanded an apology from the police for accusing him.
Whatever the outcome, it’s unlikely to make much difference to Ream’s situation. Already serving life for the murder of a child, he’s unlikely to be paroled. Michigan being a non- death penalty state, he won’t be executed either.
It might, if any further victims are discovered, provide some small closure to their families. They would at least get to give them a proper burial.
