William Henry Hance
First appearance: Episode 3
William Henry Hance is another subject in Georgia, where Holden would learn about the Atlanta murders. A former soldier, he was convicted for murdering three women (suspected to have killed four) around military bases. Again, as with Pierce, Hance isn't entirely cogent — it's confusing to Holden as to why he called the police after a murder warning them about "the forces of evil." He was likely mentally disabled, and his case has been fraught with issues around racial bias. Hance was executed in 1994 at the age of 42.
