In an earlier story, we told you about Clifford Jones, the seventh victim in the Atlanta Child Murders, which took place back in the 1980’s.
When Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced the details of a new memorial in honor of the children, members of Clifford’s family were in attendance. But Clifford’s aunt – Airmentha Williams – came later.
For her, it was a heartbreaking homecoming. She was with Clifford the day he disappeared nearly forty years ago. And she has never gotten over it.
She was part of a new HBO documentary – coming out next month – exploring the tragedy that took the lives of at least 29 innocent children. The documentary was produced after Mayor Bottoms ordered the Atlanta police to re-examine the evidence in the case to make sure nothing was overlooked and to try and bring closure to the families whose lives were forever changed.
