LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new HBO documentary "Atlanta's Missing and Murdered: The Lost Children" will take a deep dive into a case involving a string of murders that terrorized the city's black community 40 years ago.

With Atlanta's mayor pushing to reopen in the case, the five-part series that airs Sunday will explore if Wayne Williams — who was given two life sentences in connection to two of the 29 murders — or anyone else was truly behind the killing spree.

The victims' family members and other remain skeptical about Williams being the sole killer, despite evidence linking him to those murders and 10 others.
