True Crime Podcast “Atlanta Monster” Reexamines Atlanta Child Murders Of 1979-81 | Megyn Kelly TODAY


>>>SO A NEW PODCAST IS SHEDDING LIGHT ON A SERIES OF MURDERS THAT TERRIFIED ATLANTA FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS, AND NOW ALMOST 40 YEARS AFTER THE KILLINGS, QUESTIONS ARE BEING RAISED ABOUT WHETHER THE RIGHT PERSON WAS CONVICTED. WATCH. IT WAS A STRING OF KIDNAPPINGS AND MURDERS THAT PARALYZED A CITY.>>ATLANTA HAS ANOTHER MURDERED CHILD.>>APPROXIMATELY 29 AFRICAN-AMERICAN CHILDREN, TEENAGERS AND ADULTS WERE FOUND DEAD IN ATLANTA FROM 1979 TO 1981. THEY BECAME KNOWN AS THE ATLANTA CHILD MURDERS. FINALLY IN 1981, 23-YEAR-OLD WAYNE WILLIAMS WAS ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH MURDERING TWO OF THE ADULT VICTIMS. A YEAR LATER, HE WAS CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON. AFTER THE TRIAL, LAW ENFORCEMENT LINKED HIM TO 20 MORE OF THE 29 MURDERS, YET HE WAS NEVER CHARGED. WILLIAMS HAS MAINTAINED HIS INNOCENCE THROUGHOUT, AND NOW SOME SAY THERE MAY BE REASON TO BELIEVE HIM. JOINING US NOW, THE CREATORS OF THE NEW PODCAST “ATLANTA MONSTER,” DONALD ALBRIGHT AND PAYNE LINDSAY. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. IT’S SUCH A DISTURBING CASE. YOU JUST LOOK AT THE SHEER NUMBERS OF THOSE WHO WERE MURDERED. BUT THE QUESTION REMAINS WHETHER THEY WERE ALL COMMITTED BY THE SAME PERSON, BECAUSE THE MAN IN PRISON NOW HAS ONLY BEEN CONVICTED OF TWO OF THE ADULT MURDERS. SO WHAT FIRST GOT YOU INTERESTED IN THIS, PAYNE? YOU WEREN’T REALLY — WERE YOU EVEN ALIVE WHEN THIS WAS GOING DOWN?>>I WAS NOT. I WAS BORN IN ’87. I WAS AN ATLANTA NATIVE AND I’VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS STORY. I’M 30 YEARS OLD NOW SO I WAS BORN FIVE YEARS AFTER ALL THIS HAPPENED. MY BUSINESS PARTNER, DONALD, MENTIONED THE ATLANTA CHILD MURDERS TO ME IN PASSING AND I NEVER HEARD OF IT SO I LOOKED INTO IT AND LEARNED HOW MUCH IT SHAPED THE CITY OF ATLANTA AND HOW IMPORTANT THIS STORY IS TO TELL TO THE NEW GENERATION AND TO NOT FORGET.>>SO TELL US, WHY DID THEY BELIEVE THIS MAN COMMITTED THESE CRIMES?>>WELL, THEY’RE BASING IT OFF OF ONE NIGHT WHERE HE WAS CAUGHT ON THE BRIDGE. THE COPS HEARD A SPLASH, THEY WERE DOING A STAKEOUT. THEY WERE TRYING TO CATCH THIS SERIAL KILLER, WHO WAS KILLING THESE BOYS. AND THE COPS HEARD A SPLASH AND THEY STOPPED HIS CAR ON THE BRIDGE. EVER SINCE THAT POINT, THEY FOLLOWED HIM AROUND AND THEY LEARNED THAT HE WAS A TALENT SCOUT WHO WAS RECRUITING KIDS. THEY KIND OF PIECED TOGETHER THE PUZZLE AND HE BECAME THE ATLANTA CHILD MURDERER.>>NOW, THE PODCAST GETS INTO HOW WILLIAMS, WHEN HE GOT PULLED OVER, THEY WERE STAKING OUT, THEY WERE WAITING UNDER THE BRIDGE FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. SOMETHING DID HAPPEN, THEY HEARD THE SPLASH. THEY PULL HIM OVER AND THEY SAID THE FIRST THING HE SAID IS WHAT?>>HE SAYS IT’S ABOUT THOSE KIDS, ISN’T IT?>>THE SHERIFF IS LIKE, OKAY, WHAT? YES, AS A MATTER OF FACT. AND THEN HE LAUNCHED INTO COVERAGE OF — CRITICISM OF THE PRESS COVERAGE. CHANNEL 6 IS GETTING IT RIGHT BUT CHANNEL 11 HAS GOT IT ALL WRONG. ANY SHERIFF IS GOING TO BE LIKE, I THINK I GOT MY MAN. AND THEN THERE WAS FORENSIC EVIDENCE THAT TIED HIM TO THE CRIMES, RIGHT? IT WASN’T JUST CIRCUIT SHMSTANTIAL.>>THERE WAS NO DNA BACK THEN BUT THEY HAD HAIR FIBERS AND CARPET FIBERS FOUND ON VICTIMS THEY WERE ABLE TO LINK TO WAYNE WILLIAMS. AND IT WAS NEVER COMPLETELY DEFINITIVE. YOU KNOW, IT WAS — BACK THEN IT WAS A PRETTY STRONG CASE, BUT TODAY IT WOULD PROBABLY BE A LITTLE MORE QUESTIONABLE.>>AND THEN, OF COURSE, HE FAILED A POLYGRAPH.>>HE DID.>>WHICH IS NOT NECESSARILY ADMISSIBLE IN COURT BUT IT’S PERSUASIVE TO THE AVERAGE PERSON. WHEN ASKED WHETHER HE HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE MURDERS, HE SAID NO AND THE DECEPTION THING WENT UP, SO THAT’S GOING TO LEAVE MOST OF THE AUDIENCE SITTING THERE RIGHT NOW SAYING GUILTY, GOT OUR MAN, DONE, AM I RIGHT? BUT THERE’S MORE TO THE STORY, RIGHT? THERE’S MORE TO THE STORY AND WE’LL GET INTO IT RIGHT AFTER THE BREAK.

  1. Megan Kelly is a racist and a liar. I will never forget how you purposely inspired racist attacks with race baiting, calling black protesters thugs, saying that all Muslims are terrorists and inciting people to commit hate crimes all over this nation. You and the rest of the propagandist at fox, both past and present, are covered in blood from all of the attacks and murders caused by your words. You cant hide from your past and who you really are. NBC are trying to normalize these people but DON'T LET THEM. DON'T WATCH ANY SHOW KELLY OR ANYONE WHO THINKS LIKE HER IS ON. SHAME!!!!!!

  2. I’m looking forward to Dr.Oz’ show on the child murders. I hope they get to the pedophilia angle of the case. The truth finally needs to come to light!

  3. Again. Just adults. No one was charged for the kids. Can’t wait until more unfolds. And it will

  4. 29 kids murdered he had CIA training as a teen first BLK mayor and police chief in ATL at the time hmm sounds like race played a big part facts this is America

  5. 🤦‍♀️This man was framed if u know the story.We know wat happen down here in Atlanta and all the big people who was involved.

  6. Blk kids tied to trees w/lips & ears cut off. Sounds KKKish. Disingenuous indignation & shock is still prevalent on issues good, decent, idol fearing evangelical, WS, dems/reps/progressives see & ignore every day.

  7. the murders, the trial and conviction happened in 2 years. what a swift time to rush this thing and close it up so it doesn't start a race war. whatever.

  8. Payne Lindsey thinks he did it.
