Amanda Williams Death News: Push for Justice in Death of Amanda Williams in Warrensville Heights
Amanda Williams Death News: The community is seeking answers and demanding justice as more than two weeks have passed since the shooting death of 46-year-old Amanda Williams in Warrensville Heights.
Tuesday afternoon, Dr. R.A. Vernon held a press conference at The Word Church in Warrensville Heights to discuss the case. Members of her family were also present.
“The evidence that the police department had earlier was not the full picture,” said attorney Ian Friedman. “As Pastor Vernon said, we’re now going to bring all of that evidence. Once seen, there should be an investigation. Now the family will get what they deserve. Now Amanda will get what she deserves as justice in this case.”
Hours after the press conference, 3News received the following update on the case from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office: “Late yesterday (Monday), we received preliminary reports from the Warrensville Heights Police Department. We are awaiting the arrival of additional evidence. Investigations like these take time to complete. Once we believe the investigation is fully complete, we will make a determination on how to proceed, which will likely include a presentation to the grand jury.”
The shooting dates back to Oct. 9, when officers responded to the scene in the 1970 block of Sunset Drive around 11:41 p.m. Upon their arrival at the scene, officers found Williams had been shot. She later died at the hospital.
Warrensville Heights police say a “male person of interest” was detained but later released.
