Shedding a light on one of the most prolific serial crimes in US history, Atalanta’s Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children delivers an unprecedented look at the abduction and murder of at least 30 African-American children and young adults between 1979 and 1981 in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s a five-part doco-series that also dives in deep the the controversy that surrounds this case even up to this day.
It all begins as this doco tracks the initial disappearances and discoveries of two teenage boys who were murdered, as well as the gripping fear that followed, and the ultimate indictment of Wayne Williams, who was found guilty of murdering two adults and was linked to the murders of at least 10 children. Much of the controversy that followed circles around the fact that most of the murdered children’s cases were closed and attributed to Williams without ever undergoing proper trial.
Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered will feature never-before-seen footage, interviews, and court documents, as it tries to bring new evidence to light that would raise new questions related to the racial tensions and political clashes that arose in Atlanta during this tragedy. This doco would also touch upon alternate suspects, plus detailed information about the biases and unexplored possible leads that have tainted the original investigation.
