An aspiring sixteen-year old disc jockey named Wayne Williams poses with acquaintances in the basement of his father’s house in Dixie Hills in 1971. Williams’ father, Homer, persuaded Lewis to write a story for the Atlanta Voice about his son, who hoped to become a force in the music business. Eight years later, a series of unsolved murders involving 28 African American children, teenagers, and adults began. These lasted through 1981 after Williams was detained by police suspicious of his activity. Shortly thereafter, Williams was arrested, tried, and convicted for the murder of two victims, although evidence was uncovered linking him to others. Williams is serving a life sentence.
