Warren police and the FBI have searched an abandoned warehouse where convicted killer Arthur Ream used to work.

Officials say they've found multiple items that they believe will help them solve a more than 30-year-old cold case.

The warehouse is connected to a meat processing business, but it has been untouched for years, which investigators say is a big help in finding evidence that has not been tampered with.

Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer says he believes they are now one step closer to solving the disappearance of Kimberly King.

“It’s amazing to us that they have been untouched, that that particular location hasn’t been used since he went to prison and we are finding what we believe are very valuable documents that will assist us in our ongoing investigation,” Dwyer says. “That will eventually, hopefully, bring closure to the Kimberly King family and other victims we have identified in the past."

King went missing when she was 12-years-old. Police believe she may have been taken by Ream, who is currently in prison after being convicted in 2008 of killing Cindy Zarzycki.

Zarzycki's body was found in a field in Macomb Township. Warren police and the FBI searched that field for days in May in connection with the King case.

Officials believe that King and other possible victims were buried in the field, by the search was not fruitful.
