Nine year old Eugene Glenn was described as a mindful and respectful child who was living in the tough North End section of the city of Hartford. He and many of his fellow residents his age would often go exploring in abandoned buildings near where they lived. On August 9th, 1981, his parents reported him missing after he did not return home the night before at 177 Brook Street. He had last been seen in the area of Main and Canton Streets around 5 to 8 pm. After a search of the neighborhood, the boy who was three months away from his birthday was found strangled to death in the basement of an abandoned home at 134 Mather Street hours after he was reported missing. When found he was stripped down from the waist. Police have never stated though if Glen had been sexually abused by his killer. There have been suspects in this case but the murderer has never been brought to justice. A Hartford Courant article at the time noted the similarities of Eugene’s murder and that of several children that were victimized by a possible serial killer(s) in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Months earlier a person who fled to Hartford from Atlanta and was arrested. The arrested individual had ties to several of the murdered children.

Wayne Williams would end up being convicted for two of the murders and police would infer that Williams was responsible for most of the other murders. But as time goes by, it looks like that there were others involved.
