Dead: John Williams

It was reported that on May 11, 32-year-old Williams of Third Street, Marthasville, Mon Repos, ECD was walking along Water Street, Georgetown with a green haversack on his back and as he turned onto Commerce Street, Georgetown, he was confronted by the three suspects, who approached him from behind.
Police stated that a 15-year-old held onto Williams’ haversack, but he put up a resistance during which another suspect stabbed him several times to his chest with a knife.
The injured man immediately collapsed onto the roadway and remained motionless. The suspects then fled the scene.
The Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) were summoned, and Williams was pronounced dead. However, quick response by the Police led to the arrest of a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old. During interrogation, the teens claimed that the intent was to rob the victim.
Badley was later arrested and charged.
