In Atlanta in the years of 1979 to 1981, 29 black men and children where killed and or missing in a serial killing situation that terrified a nation.

Although Wayne Williams had been convicted for murder, he was never tried or convicted of most of the crimes, leaving many Atlanta families without closure, some children still never found and some thinking that Wayne Williams wasn’t the killer at all.

The Mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance Bottoms, in light of a new documentary that will be airing, is now seeking to reopen the case.
