Will Packer To Produce Three-Part Docu-Series On ‘The Atlanta Child Murders’ For Investigation Discovery

By Posted on 59 2 m read

Coming to the Investigation Discovery channel next month is a new docu-series produced by Will Packer that will tell the story of the 29 mysterious murders of African-American children that shook the Atlanta area in 1979.

‘The Atlanta Child Murders’ tells the story of what would turn out to be 23 horrifying months of trying to track down what appears to be a serial killer targeting the Atlanta, Georgia area. It began in 1979 when two 14-year-old boys go missing. A few days later a woman stumbles across their remains, with one boy fatally shot and the other strangled. This incident begins a horrifying 23 months, with a total of 29 African-American children being stolen from their families and killed. Multiple suspicions lead nowhere, and under intense pressure, local police rush to find the killer before he strikes again. The city is primed to blame someone, anyone, for these cold-blooded crimes against the community. Yet decades later, no person has been tried for these murders, and the killer has never been confirmed.

“This case remains one of our countries’ most perplexing mysteries, and at ID we are proud to shine a light on every angle of this largely forgotten story,” says Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America, “Will Packer’s vision to revisit this national tragedy through the never-before-heard perspective of the victims’ families brings home the true devastation of these cases.”

Will Packer will produce the three-part series with Jupiter Entertainment, according to Deadline. He will executive produce alongside Kelly Smith, Harrison Land, Mike Sheridan, Allison Wallach and Pamela Deutsch.

“Having lived in Atlanta for over 20 years, the story of this senseless tragedy is personally important to me, and the echoes of what happened 40 years ago still resonate in the city,” says Packer. “I am proud to give a voice to the victims’ families, many of whom still seek closure to this day, and analyze how this story is more relevant than ever in today’s environment.”

‘The Atlanta Child Murders’ will premiere on the cable network on March 23.
