Reward for Atlanta Killers surges to half a million

The reward for capture of Atlanta's child killers grew to half a million dollars with a $400,000 donation from former heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali, who noted the old reward of $100,000 "won't even buy a Rolls-Royce".

Twenty-six young blacks have been found slain during the past 21 months, and another is listed as missing.

The initial offer of a $100,000 reward brought to major breaks in the case, although at one point Mayor Maynard Jackson appeared on television with the money heaped around him to show how much a tipster could expect. Ali's offer, like the other, is contingent on the tipster providing information leading to the arres t and conviction of those involved.
