ATLANTA — Atlanta's mayor and police chief are leading a push to re-examine evidence from a string of murders that terrorized the city's black community between 1979 and 1981.

As a result, authorities are being inundated with calls. Now, officials have set up a central hotline for anyone with information about the "Atlanta Child Murders" cases.

Atlanta police urged tipsters to call 404-546-2603 and, if no one answers, callers are encouraged to leave a message for follow-up.

At least 25 African-American children and several adults were killed in the late 70s and early 80s. Atlanta native Wayne Williams was convicted in the deaths of two adults in 1981. He's been linked to the deaths of at least 22 of the children, but has never been tried. Williams maintains he never killed children.

Police: ATV motorist who dragged Tenn. officer arrested

NASHVILLE — The suspect who dragged an officer while riding an ATV last Saturday has been arrested.

Walter Moss, 30, was driving his four-wheeler down a downtown street when Officer John Bourque attempted to stop him, WKRN reports. The officer was dragged by the ATV then thrown into a metal barrier along the road.

“It's kind of makes me angry that these guys say, we don’t care what the law is, we don't care about anyone else but ourselves,” says Bourque.

Last Saturday, a Nashville street was illegally filled with about 100 ATVs, motorcycles and dirt bikes. It was the second day in a row that the off-road vehicles drove on major roads throughout the city.

Originally, Bourque said he was going after another ATV motorist, but Moss struck him and sent him flying into a barricade.

“I don’t think they're out there to hurt an officer, it seems like they just want to take over the streets because they can, because they're a large group," he says.

Moss faces six charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, reckless endangerment and evading arrest.
