On March 21, 2019, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced the decision to re-examine evidence in the Atlanta Child Murders involving at least 25 deaths from 1979 to 1981. Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields supports the decision to partner with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Fulton County District Attorney's Office to take a fresh look at the cases and determine if the any of the evidence qualifies for further analysis. Given the advances in technology in the past 40 years, APD investigators will take a close look at the numerous boxes of evidence retained from the Wayne Williams trial. “We don’t know what we will find,” said Chief Shields. “But what we do know is we have an obligation to these families to ensure that every imaginable investigative lead was followed.” In light of the loss suffered by the family members of the victims in the Atlanta Child Murders, Mayor Bottoms has committed to creating a permanent memorial to honor their memory in the City of Atlanta.
