Episode Info

Episode Info: Today we are talking about the Atlanta Child Murders. Between 1979 and 1981, children and teenagers were disappearing off the streets of Atlanta, later turning up dead, terrifying the entire city. At least 28 people in the Atlanta area, most of them young black boys and teenagers, were kidnapped and murdered. This case is complicated. So to do it justice, we felt we had to turn it into a two parter. We encourage you to check out our show notes for additional information about the case. And we welcome our listeners to be a part of the conversation on Facebook or Twitter @ fruitloopspod or email us at We dive into the Stats (13:24), the setting (16:12), the convicted killer's early life (32:20) and the timeline (39:36).  As usual we close out the show with some tips on how not to get murdered (103:25) and some shout outs (108:15).
