Wayne Williams Biography
Birthday: May 27, 1958 (Gemini)
Born In: Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Wayne Williams is an American murder convict who is serving two life sentences in a Georgia state prison for killing two adult men in Atlanta, Georgia. He is also the prime suspect for the Atlanta Child Murders, a series of kidnappings and murders between July 1979 and May 1981 that claimed at least 23 victims, mostly children. However, he never accepted the charges and claimed the involvement of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in the crimes, which was covered up by the officials to avoid a race war. Despite the lack of evidence against him, the prosecutors maintained that since Williams became a suspect in the case, no new cases of similar killings have happened. His request for retrial has been declined a couple times and he has been denied parole most recently in November 2019. He was the antagonist in the CBS miniseries 'The Atlanta Child Murders', the 'Showtime' telefilm 'Who Killed Atlanta's Children?' and the Netflix series 'Mindhunter'.
