17 year old William "Billy Star" Barrett (5'4", 124lbs, DOB 08 Oct 1963) lived at 346 2nd Avenue NE in a red brick house (396 2nd Avenue NE, according to some sources).
Barrett had a criminal record including aggravated assault, drug violations, theft, and receiving stolen property and was admitted to the Georgia Department of Offender Rehab for a felony. He was sent to a youth development center in Milledgeville in previous October. A business man reported that Barrett and Lubie Geter frequented his store on Memorial. Family included father William Tolbert; sisters Sylvia L. Wilson and Sharon D. Glenn; brother Kenneth Chester; maternal grandparents Martha R. and Willie L. Barrett; four aunts, Elizabeth B. Bryant, Grady (Diane) Davis, Jr., Gwendolyn Rowland and Mary J. Barrett; four uncles, Bijous Allen Barrett, Mr. and Mrs. Gary B. Clark, Mr. and Mrs. Roger Barrett Clark; great aunt Mabel Payden [Youngstown, Ohio]; great-great-aunt, Clara Lawrence.

Barrett was last seen at the McDaniel-Glenn Housing Community Center paying a bill for his mother, Janie (Janice?) Glenn. This community center was where Patrick "Pat Man" Rogers danced. A neighbor reportedly saw him later, a few blocks from home in the Kirkwood-East Lake area along Memorial, getting into a 2 door white car with a black man carrying a purse.

1800 Monday 11 May 1981

An elementary school student claimed he was approached by someone offering him $3,000 to kill Barrett.

Aunt Marry Harris and a cousin said Wayne Williams had been at their house.
On 12 May, 1981, William Barrett's body was found by FBI agents on a curb in a wooded area on Winthrop Dr near I-20 and Glenwood, near Greencove. A 32 year old custodian from Southwest HS, Harold Wood, had ran out of gas about a mile from the scene and was arrested and questioned. Wood described a black man with a white over blue Cadillac standing where the body was found and staring at him before driving away. The police said this matched the description of the man who found the body.

The cause of death was asphyxiation by strangulation. White undercoat animal hairs were found on the body. He was fully clothed but missing his faded blue jean jacket. Also found on body were a East Lake Meadows Boys Club Card, 2 Willie Johnson Paint Co. cards and boy scout pocket knife. There was a postmortem stab wound. A phone number in his pocket was traced to a white man seen at the Omni and at the 5-Points MARTA station picking up boys. A witness saw Barrett at this man's house one week before his disappearance, and also saw Lubie Geter there.

The state called this another "pattern case."

The funeral was held Saturday, May 16, 1981, at 1 p.m. at Free For All Baptist Church, 2218 Candler Rd., Decatur, with Rev. J.W. Stafford pastor, Bishop Henry Phillips officiating, assisted by Rev. M.E. Oliver and interment South View Cemetery.

27 year old Nathaniel Cater lived in the Falcon Hotel at 180 Luckie Street NW after moving out of his father's apartment at 2261 Verbena St NW on April 24. This is where his parents Alonzo T. Cater, Sr., and Margaret Cater and siblings Gwinette and Anthony Cater, 18, lived.

Nathaniel worked for "Add-A-Man" Labor pool and solicited sex at the Silver Dollar Saloon and Cameo Lounge on Spring Street.

A prisoner in Suffolk County Jail in Massachusetts said he took photos of Cater and gave them to a "heavy-set guy" at a bookstore on Peachtree Street. He said Darron Glass was paid for sex by men there.

Nathaniel Cater was reportedly last seen by gardener Robert I. Henry here at the entrance of the Rialto Theatre (84 Forsyth St NW) holding hands with Wayne Williams. That morning he was also seen near the bus station after leaving the Cameo Lounge near Woodruff Park.

2130 Thursday 21 May 1981

Falcon desk clerk Lyle Nichols said the last time he saw Cater was 3pm 21 May 1981.

A "running buddy" of Cater's said he saw him on 23 May 1981. Cameo Lounge customer, Howard Campbell, also maintained that he saw Cater on that date around 2:30pm. Jimmy "Tightrope" Anthony, 19, also said he saw Cater Saturday morning, 23 May 1981, entering the Healy building (or in Central City Park, now Woodruff Park). These sightings by three people he knew were a full day after the "bridge incident" with Wayne Williams. This alone should provide sufficient "reasonable doubt" that Wayne Williams threw Cater's body over the bridge.

Tightrope lived in his cousin's apartment in the same building as Anthony "Amp" Wiley on the corner of Verbena and Shirley Place next to Cater's family, Wilson, and Montgomery. Wiley was charged with murdering a white woman, Jean Buice, 34, with his two cousins, Lapas Flavor and his brother. Wiley was on bail for raping a girl next door. He also dated Payne's girlfriend.
Nathaniel Cater's body was found by 2 boys fishing yards/a half mile south of the I-285 bridge on the Atlanta side of Chattahoochie near South Cobb Drive, between Jackson Parkway and Gordon Street. Also found there was a safe (police never released what was found inside), clothing, and a Thompson-submachine gun.

His body was found naked. His cause of death was undetermined asphyxiation. He had a bullet wound scar on his right shoulder, like another missing man, but was identified through finger prints.

24 May 1981

After Cater was found dead, his roommate John Henly came into the labor pool scared and crying that he'd be next. He said that the week before a white man in a suit and a black man in expensive sports clothes had come several times asking for Cater.

Cater's mother and sister first claimed they saw Wayne Williams with Nathaniel on 25 May 81 (a day after he was found dead) but then recanted, saying it was 18 May 81.

Cater's funeral was held Saturday, May 30, 1980 at the Mount Olive Baptist Church, with Rev. Johnny L. Jones officiating.

I just find it interesting that they had recorded tapes of kkk members that supposedly admitted to their role in some of the killings. And also to an informant claiming they wiped out thousands of generations of n*s
"Decades old wiretaps of conversations between suspected white supremacists that could play a role in the case of convicted killer Wayne Williams likely have been destroyed, a state official said Saturday.
The tapes were withheld from Williams during his 1982 trial. His lawyers have asked for them now that some of the cases of Atlanta's "missing and murdered" children have been reopened.
But they may no longer exist."
Good info babe. Thats what a lot of folks in the "A" believe,that the KKK and the cops where involved with the murders. And Williams was the scape goat.

My theory makes more sense than all I have read. Remember...when Wayne was bragging about something big was going to happen. Some people started listening to Wayne because they saw him as somewhat of a financial prodigy. Within a couple weeks of his arrest, he was telling his close friends that HE was going to be the one that solved the Atlanta Child Murders, thats why his family and friends were shocked to find out he was involved when he was arrested. So if he began to figure out what happened and wanted to do it without letting his pedophile friends know what he was up to, you think he would have stayed quiet and tried to watch and seek the truth because he knew the players involved? He was in the ballpark, but wound up getting caught....and later on threatened as he put it. All of those points of interest work well with all the evidence and the incidents that took place as he was picked because he was always in the company of the young men...and definitely the last two who he seemed to want to keep track of. Maybe he was starting to feel responsible for luring these young boys for money and them winding up dead.

The female cases probably should have been investigated separately.
Angel Lenair is the girl you are talking about. The main suspect in her case was arrested for the attempted abduction of a black boy. He was also known to stare at one black girl while she was sweeping. He had a belt fashioned out of an electrical cord similar to that used to kill Lenair.
The police failed to preserve the electrical cord that was used to hang Lenair for fingerpriting.
In that same area, lived a black man named Wiley who had murdered a ww.
Not long before, a wm had murdered seven ww in Atlanta.
In another case, a bm asked a young black boy to enter a car. The black boy, seeing handcuffs and a butcher knife, refused to enter the car. The bm then turned and asked his (the boy's)friend, Angela Bacon, to get in the car. She complied, but for some reason, she became afraid and wished to leave. The man man shoved her out of the car and rolled over her, killing her. The police were unable to prosecute him because of lack of evidence.

The police received a call from a man who identified himself as the killer and said that he had placed a body on Sigman Road. The police looked for a body, but they could not find one. The man called them back and said that he had placed another body there and that he had three more victims still living. The police found a body on that road. Years later, the second body was found.
The police said the killer sounded like a wm and they traced the call to a store. A wm who lived next to the store admitted making in the store about the same time as the call, but denied making the call.

The police could have easily pinned the murders on him, especially since he was involved in another sexual assault and knew two other victim, Nathaniel Carter and Michael Mcintosh?

So this guy raped to young boys? Also, were any of the bodies of the other young boys raped as well?
