According to her parents, they had called her several times but she didn’t answer their call. Later, one of Kalecia’s friends, Chaperone informed April and Savoy about their daughter’s demise and Williams’s parents expressed their anger towards Chaperone and even stated that he should have taken care of her and should have been responsible for her.
Furthermore, Infinity who was a close friend of Kalecia Williams spoke to her parents personally and tried to explain what had happened that night. He also said Williams screamed for some time before she went unconscious. No proofs or eyewitnesses have been found so far.
Williams Was Supposed To Be At An Airbnb That Night
Even to the date, no one can clearly state if the murder was pre-planned or it was just an immediate reaction. That night she was supposed to be on Airbnb, what was she doing at Hyatt Regency Atlanta Hotel instead of being on an Airbnb.
Well, as we mentioned earlier the name of Williams’s friend is Chaperone who was the one who took her to the hotel. He booked a room for her that night. As stated by Chaperone, he said that Kalecia reached the party venue at around 8/9 when no one was there. In fact, she reached earlier and the party was not started yet.
After the party was over, along with some other friends, the chaperone took Kalecia to the Hyatt Regency Atlanta Hotel instead of an Airbnb. The actual reason behind why he took her to the place where she wasn’t supported to be is the biggest question. If he had brought the room for Williams, then why he didn’t inform her parents about this. However, many questions are still unanswered.
Williams Neighbor Heard The Gunshot
Although there was no eyewitness to the incident, many of her neighbors claimed that they had heard the sound of a gunshot at the hotel. One of those is a woman from South Carolina who happened to be at the same hotel that night when the incident took place and revealed that she saw what had happened the moment after she heard the gunshot.
According to her, she saw two of the boys who were carrying Kalecia’s body to the hotel lobby. One of them had one leg of William and another had the other. The guys said to her that she was shot and asked for help.
The women also made a video of them and in that video, the TikTok was full of blood, which goes the exact opposite as stated in the official reports as it claimed Kalecia had less blood at that time. So, this is also another mysterious tale regarding Kalecia Williams’s death.
Kalecia Williams’ Murderer Was A Juvenile: Sentenced For Only A Year In Prison
After the incident took place, Atlanta police reported that Kalecia William’s killer was a teenage boy. As per the reports provided by the police, they tracked down the boy from the crime scene and were arrested immediately in no time. The reportedly killer was not only for the murder of Kalecia Williams but also for sexual harassment, reckless conduct, and underage possession of a weapon.
However, because the killer was a minor, police could not disclose his name and identity to the public. After a few days of his custody and interrogation, the Atlanta police transferred him to the Metro Regional Youth Detention Center.
After investigation, the officer find out that the boy was also present at the party Kalecia attended that night. He and Williams had an argument at the party venue for some unknown reason. In fact, some of the tabloids claimed the boy who shot Kalecia Williams was a boy named, Karie Brown. Reportedly, Brown and William had a noisy argument before he shot her to death.
Whatever the case may be, the killer only served a year behind the bars. As the cold-blooded killer was a minor and was under juvenile detention, he had to spend just a year in prison and is moving freely outside since then. However, Kalecia Williams’s parents said it isn’t enough and they want a proper investigation of her daughter’s murder.
