Bill Wilson (1880 — ?) was a man wrongfully convicted in Blount County, Alabama of murdering his wife and child in 1912.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Bill Wilson )〕
Bill Wilson, a farmer in Blount County, Alabama, married Jenny Wade in 1900. Their third child was born in 1907. Jenny left her husband 19 months later and returned to her family. Bill moved in with his father Si, taking the two older children with him. During the divorce proceedings, Jenny and the child disappeared. Shortly before Jenny was last seen Jane McClendon, a local farmer's daughter, had mysteriously disappeared and for several weeks rumours circulated that foul play was involved in both disappearances.
In late 1912, Dolphus Tidwell and his son were fishing on the Black Warrior River near the property of Bill's father when they noticed a bone sticking out of the soil. The Tidwells found a mat under the soil which exposed what they believed to be the skeletons of an adult and a child. Believing there may be an Indian burial mound nearby they searched the area for relics but found nothing. They re-buried the bones and returned home. News of the discovery spread and for several days locals searched the area for Indian artifacts until they lost interest.〔〔
Jim House, a casual laborer who occasionally worked for Si Wilson, began telling anyone who would listen that he believed the remains belonged to Jenny and her daughter. He recounted how he had seen Jenny visit her father-in-laws house carrying a basket in 1908 and that the following morning he noticed footprints leading to the river. Following the footprints he found children's clothing and blood on a rock. The story soon spread until the county solicitor, James Embry heard it. Embry called a Grand Jury and Bill Wilson was indicted for the murder of his wife and baby.〔〔
