I like the two narrators. Their way of speaking makes it not boring and I like the true crime aspect

Wayne Williams maybe guilty of some of the crimes but I don’t think he did all of them. Williams was used as a “scapegoat” because he fit the narrative. They had already made up in their minds of the killer(profiled). After Williams was publicly convicted the murders didn’t stop. The news trucks and reporters just left. But the world was MADE to CARE for a moment. But the killer and/or killers remained free just like they always have throughout history.

Ian Nai Really? Wow. Just. Don't. Please. Prejudice exists in the police system. Don't be naive. And don't spread your idiocy. Please.

Ian Nai Can you blame them during the time? You can say things like they're being silly now but if you were alive in that moment, you would understand.

need 4 change

good episode but the gas explosion - and therefore the 10-minute monologue devoted to it by the conspiracy guy from minute 18:00 - is a complete red herring

This guy is so arogant. He has ideas on how to produce the podcast. I can see why he was convicted. His attitude didn't help during the trial.

why didn't he have any of the kids who he was trying to recruit for the band testify at his trial. that would of given him some credibility to show he wasn't out there just trying to use that as a way to get kids in his car as they claimed.

Those that are not from Atlanta and especially during this time have NOT 1 CLUE WHAT IT WAS LIKE BACK. I myself am from Atlanta born and raised and lived in those times, we were what you called "street light kids", yes our parents let us go play freely because everybody looked out for each other, we were poor impressionable kids, Who had no clue what danger was until our friends started turning up missing then found dead. Now, I will say this we have always said Wayne Williams may have done some but he didn't do them all. Did the murders stop after he was arrested?! HELL NO! AND I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT! and I don't have to divulge it here continue to believe what you want but the murders did not stop. and the reason why we say he didn't do them was an up close and personal experience friends and I had. I really enjoyed this podcast it brought back so many hurtful memories and the sadness that times really have not changed. back then there more poor and disenfranchised people (blacks,) who felt like their kids did not matter. I can go on and on and on. to live it is one thing to hear about it is another. and no one can tell me anything differently because if you or your family lived in Georgia back there's no way you should not know about the Atlanta missing and murdered children. to me it simply means you were sheltered or again, they (we) were not that important. what about the parents who loss their children? what about the friends who loss their friends? again I applaud you for doing this podcast it means someone actually does care.

What I fail to understand is why no one discusses the fact that the boys were all found with red pubic hair from a white individual.

I don't understand why they would pull him over at the bridge and question him but not take him into the police station. I mean that is why they sat around for 2 months working all those days to arrest someone to just let him go that night when they claim that they saw rope clothing and he continue to make weird statement in regards to the murder. why wouldn't they arrest him that night to make sure that it was or wasn't him. his story doesn't make sense about looking for some girls address in the middle of the night but at the same time the police officer's statement of letting him go doesn't make sense either if he really did have rope clothing etc in his car. there are just so many questions that aren't being asked, idk.. I'll continue to listen see what happens

After listening to the third podcast I'm still completely frustrated with the interviewer. Was there any other murders after W Williams was caught and tried? I don't believe there was. You have now found a video from a guy who is doing a documentary on William's. He hasn't given any physical information (documentation) to back up anything he's saying.Other than the one changed in the autopsy report. Did you ask for tangible information from this guy? He said he knows that William's didn't do it. You don't ask simple question regarding his information and how he got it. I moved to the next episode but find it boring and stopped. You as well as your guest seem to be jazzing up each other. Either you are both young with little experience or the producer and editing department lack the experience necessary for such a important case. I will continue to listen but question my reasoning. Sorry to be harsh. Like I said this is important. Thanks

Sadle May Friedman I also felt the same sentiments on the third episode, so I moved on to other podcasts.

I remember the Atlanta murders when they were happening. I am frustrated with the investor doing this podcast. In this episode the brother of one victim' gave a account of what happened to his brother in the laundry mat. Why did this boy not run and tell someone? Was he just standing around watching his brother being torture? Why was he allowed to get away? This doesn't make any common sense. You are not doing a good job at the investigation.
