Authorities in Atlanta are searching for the two murderers of William Hill. The case was aired on AMW five times from 1999 to 2004.
On May 6, 1998, ATM courier William Hill went to a strip mall in Atlanta, Georgia to refill an ATM machine. Authorities say someone fired from the back of a Ford pickup truck with a camper shell at Hill with an AR-14 or hunting-type rifle. Hill died instantly from a shot to the head. A second individual, described as a white male, in his 40's to early 50's, appeared and told witnesses to call 911, then collected up to $70,000 from bags containing money. He then drove off in the pickup truck. Minutes later, authorities found the truck engulfed in flames. It was later revealed that the truck had been stolen in January.
It is believed that the two men may have committed similar robberies in 1989 and 1992. The 1992 robbery occurred in the Atlanta suburb of Chamblee, luckily no one was killed in that case.
Thoughts? It appears to me that the way Hill was killed make it look like a military style sniper kill. I have a feeling that at least one of the two killers served in the military, possibly even both of them serving together several years before the 1998 murder. Investigators were stumped by the one killer only taking $70,000 when he could have taken much more in Hill's vehicle. To me, the killers knew that authorities would be on the scene very quickly and took only what they felt they could get.
