This is one of those cases I've always wondered about. Was Wayne Williams really the serial killer or was he railroaded for crimes he didn't commit? Chief reopens child murders DeKalb revisits 1980s killings Almost 25 years ago, Louis Graham was part of the "missing and murdered" task force assigned to catch a serial killer of boys and young men in metro Atlanta. But Graham didn't agree with the official conclusion that talent scout Wayne Williams was the murderer. Now, as DeKalb County police chief, Graham is acting on his opinion. He said Friday that his department is reopening four — perhaps five — of the "missing and murdered" cases, widely known as the Atlanta Child Murders, that terrorized the area during the early 1980s. Williams was convicted of two killings in Fulton County in 1982 and sentenced to life in prison, where he remains. After the trial, authorities said Williams was responsible for an additional 22 deaths, including the five that Graham cited Friday. But there were no trials in those cases. "These cases are DeKalb County cases. There has not been any finality to these cases," Graham said. http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/dekalb/0505/07missing.html I wish DeKalb the very best of luck investigating these cases.
