Florida Man’s Wife And Best Friend Indicted For His Death After He Was Missing For 17 Years

Two people were indicted this week for allegedly killing a man more than 17 years ago to collect a life insurance policy: His wife and his best friend, who ended up marrying each other.

Denise Williams was arrested Tuesday and charged for the December 2000 death of former husband Mike Williams. An indictment says she and her husband’s best friend Brian Winchester planned the murder for nine months and passed it off as an accident. Winchester also allegedly pulled the trigger, a grand jury found, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.  

Williams pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and accessory after the fact. She is being held without bond.

Winchester and Denise Williams have known each other since pre-school and married five years after Mike’s disappearance. Winchester is currently serving 20 years for kidnapping Denise Williams at gunpoint in 2016, after their marriage fell apart. Winchester said

AWOL Marine Charged With Murdering His Missing Grandmother

An 18-year-old Marine has been charged with murder after police found the body of his missing grandmother.

Isaiah Kahleal Evans Caesar was charged on Saturday, nearly a month after he went AWOL from his post in Fort Benning in Georgia, ABC11 in Durham reported. 

Police discovered the body of his grandmother Sallie Copeland Evans, 74, near a highway in Roanoke Rapids the night before. Her family had filed a missing persons report after they didn’t hear from Evans for several days.

Caesar had been absent without leave since April 2 and was wanted for desertion. Before Evans’ death, she had tried convincing him to return to his post, the family said.

Willie Patterson, Evans’ neighbor of around 20 years, told ABC11 that Evans had even asked him to join her and Caesar on a drive to Camp Lejeune, a nearby military base, where she reportedly planned to talk to Caesar about resuming his military career. Warning bells went

FBI Offers Reward After Ohio Teen Missing Since Witnessing Father’s Death

An Ohio teen is still missing after reportedly witnessing his father being killed in 2017. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation put out a Missing Person report for Jacob Lee Caldwell, who was last seen on August 21, 2017, in Sugarcreek Township, Ohio. The blonde, blue-eyed 14-year-old boy witnessed the fatal shooting of his father, Robert Caldwell, on August 15 along with his two siblings, according to an FBI news release. At a subsequent press conference, federal authorities announced that the teen was reported missing six nights after his father was killed. His grandmother went to check on him before alerting authorities that Jacob was missing.

Although the teen boy vanished just days after his father’s death, police have a new break in the case of Robert Caldwell’s death and believe someone is helping the teen stay hidden.

On March 13, six people were indicted in connection with the killing of Robert Caldwell, authorities said.

Missing Skier Who Disappeared In Adirondacks Found In California ‘Confused,’ Wearing Same Ski Gear

It’s a truly baffling story. A skier went missing from Whiteface Mountain in upstate New York on Wednesday. Now, he’s turned up alive five days later, wearing the same ski clothing, but in Sacramento, California.

Police have not revealed how Constantinos “Danny” Filippidis, 49, of Toronto, traveled 2,900 miles, but they have said that they do not believe he flew across the country because his identification was still in upstate New York, NBC 5 reported.

His belongings and car were still in the parking lot, located in the Adirondacks. Over the last week, police crews, helicopters and hundreds of volunteers combed the mountain in hopes of finding Filippidis.

The man, a firefighter, has no history of mental illness or substance abuse, according to various reports. He called his wife on Tuesday from California, confused.

The president of the Toronto Professional Firefighters’ Association told Syracuse.com that “he kinda found himself.” Filippidis vanished during his

Teen Named Person Of Interest In Murder Of Missing 16-Year-Old Found Dead After Getting Strange Text

A teenage boy is now being investigated as a person of interest in connection with the death of Jholie Moussa, a 16-year-old girl whose body was discovered last week covered by leaves and brush in the wooded area of a Fairfax County, Virginia park.

The 17-year-old boy is not being charged with her murder, but he is facing a count of felony assault in connection to an attack that happened to Moussa before she died, The Washington Post reported. The assault was previously unreported, and police discovered it during their search for Moussa. The 17-year-old was arrested January 18 in the assault, according to the Post.

Details surrounding that attack, including when it happened, are unclear. Because he is a juvenile, his identity is not yet being released. Police did not reveal what his relationship is to Moussa.
