ATLANTA CHILD MURDERS FBI FILES

2825 pages of files copied from FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C., covering the Atlanta Child Murders. Between 1979 and 1981 the disappearances and murders of 30 children and young adults in Atlanta, Georgia were investigated by a  task force that believed the crimes were linked. At the time many, including the mayor of Atlanta, believed the FBI was not giving enough assistance in  the case. On November 6, 1980, the Attorney General directed the FBI to participate in the investigation of the missing and murdered children. In addition to working an independent investigation, the FBI assisted the local task force with manpower, guidance and technical assistance.

Some of the bodies were found in the Chattahoochee River. On the morning of May 21, 1981, police staking out a bridge crossing the Chattahoochee heard a splash. A car driven by Wayne Bertram Williams was stopped. Two days later, the body of 27 year-old Nathaniel Cater was found downstream from the bridge. On February 27, 1982, Williams was found guilty on two counts of murder in Fulton County Superior Court, Atlanta, Georgia. He was sentenced to two consecutive life terms. Two days later the task force disbanded and announced that 24 of 30 cases were considered solved and attributed to Williams.
