This morning, Oakland County Prosecutor announced charges of 4 counts of involuntary manslaughter against James and Jennifer Crumbley, parents of 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley, who’s accused of shooting and killing four students and injuring six more students and one teacher on Tuesday at Oxford High School in the small, rural community of Oxford, MI.
Only moments ago, Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard announced on CNN that they had told the couple’s attorney that if any charges were issued against the parents that they wanted to know so they could arrest the couple. “When we were informed the prosecutor had issued charges, we sent detectives out and got a call from the lawyer of the couple saying they’re not returning their calls or texts,” Bouchard explained. “So, if they think they’re going to get away—they’re not,” he added.
The CNN host asked, “So, the Crumbley’s are missing now?” Sheriff Bouchard responded, “Correct.”
Oh nothing just the parents of the Michigan shooter are now missing. Wow. https://t.co/5rws5r2qWh

Detroit News – The Oakland County Fugitive Apprehension Team is searching Friday for the parents of an Oxford High teenager charged in Tuesday’s school shooting after the couple stopped responding to their attorney, according to authorities.
That agreement with attorney Shannon Smith was sometime in the morning, McCabe said around 2 p.m. Friday.
“Our last conversation with the attorney was that she had been trying to reach them by phone and text, and they were not responding,” he said.
McCabe said Fugitive Apprehension Team officers still were out searching for the couple as of mid-afternoon Friday. The Crumbley family owns a 2021 white Kia Seltos with the license plate DQG5203, according to Michigan Secretary of State records.
