LAPEER COUNTY (WJRT) - (11/10/15) - A private investigator is helping a local family in their attempt to prove a wrongful murder conviction.
Kenneth Grondin was convicted of killing his girlfriend and will spend the rest of his life in prison, but his family says he's innocent.
“I will go to my grave proving this. I don’t care how much it costs,” said Carl Grondin, Kenneth Grondin’s grandfather.
They’ve enlisted the help of private investigator Al Norris and his team of seasoned detectives.
They started searching the Lapeer State Game Area on Tuesday, where Andrea Eilber’s car was found abandoned four years ago.
Eilber was shot to death while house sitting for her aunt in Lapeer County’s Mayfield Township in 2011.
While they're searching, Kenneth is in the first weeks of a mandatory sentence.
Carl said he'll never stop fighting for his grandson.
“I’m selling everything I own and I'm going to enjoy selling everything I own to solve this case,” he said.
The family is asking anyone with information or hunters who might stumble on potential evidence in the woods to contact Norris. His contact information is below:
