Shoe Tree and the Child Killer

There is an old urban legend about a child killer that lurked in Walled Lake, MI decades ago.

He was murdering children and disposing of their shoes by throwing them up into a tree to catch on the top branches.

The killer, fearing that authorities were closing in on him, escaped town.

He was never found, but his shoe tree was found, with all of its trophies.

There are trees in Michigan that are laden with shoes. 

One is on the side of the road of US-131 north, just outside of Kalkaska.
