This letter is in response to the article which I read in the Apalachicola Times newspaper dated May 15, 2014 headlined “Sexual predator killed during argument.”
First, according to the investigative report prepared by officials at the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, Norman Bill Williams’ death is allegedly related to a person who struck him from “behind” with an ax handle below his left ear while he was arguing with another person who accused him of inappropriately touching a woman at his home. Specifically, according to said investigative report, Norman Bill Williams’ death had nothing to do with him being a convicted sexual predator or habitual criminal in the past.
So, morally, I don’t feel that Williams’ death should have been portrayed in the manner which it was publicized in
Lastly, Norman Bill Williams’ past criminal history should not be held against him by anyone to justify his alleged killing.
