James Vincent Gunnels

In 1977 Gunnels was 15 years old and a known “companion” of Christopher Busch and Gregory Green. He would be better described as a “victim” of Busch and Green as he was sexually assaulted by both men.

In the early 00’s, a hair from Gunnels was matched via mitochondrial DNA to a hair found on the body of 10 year old Kristine Mihelich, the third confirmed victim of the Oakland County Child Killer.

Gunnels failed a polygraph regarding Mihelich’s murder. He also sat down with the family of Timothy King (fourth confirmed victim) but provided no clarity as to how his hair was on Kristine’s body.
