Step-Grandma found guilty for abuse that led to SA toddler’s death, sentenced to 88 years

The child died two days after Christmas in 2012. He was abused, neglected and malnourished.

Three people were charged in this case. Among them is, Josiah’s stepmother, Crystal Williams. She pleaded guilty to injury to a child, a first-degree felony.

KENS 5 sat in court last June to hear the chilling testimonies, as Williams awaited her fate.

“Josiah’s cause of death is listed as ‘dehydration in a battered, underweight child’,” said Dr. Samantha Evans of the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office. Evans performed the autopsy on Josiah.

Tears and sobs filled the courtroom as the jury was played a video showing paramedics examining 5-year-old Josiah Williams after they found him dead inside of a southeast-side home.

Investigators said the boy suffered months of abuse at the hands of his stepmother, Crystal Williams, his father, Charleston Williams, and

ELSA – The remains found inside a septic tank near Elsa are believed to be of a woman, according to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to a call about suspicious circumstances. The occupant of the home said he first discovered a bone in the septic tank. 

Crews with Precinct 1 brought in a backhoe to dig up the area and a crime scene investigator retrieved the femur.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra said a forensic pathologist confirmed they were human remains. 

“We’re sifting through that raw sewage and we have recovered, so far, various ribs. We’ve got the skull. The skull does have the teeth intact,” he said. “We’re at that process right now. Obviously, it’s going to take a while.”

Body found in Maitland’s Lake Lily

The Maitland Police Department received a disturbing call around 9:15 a.m. Sunday morning, when a body was discovered floating in Lake Lily.

“What had happened, was that several of the vendors that participate in the farmer’s market — I guess — complained to the Parks and Rec employee there, who helps set it up, about an odor where their tents were,” said Louis Grindle, Maitland Police Department’s public information officer. “Upon further investigation by the employee, she observed what seemed to be a body in the water, so she contacted us right away.”

Once authorities got to the scene, the market and park were closed until around 2 p.m, which was also the time that the scene investigation wrapped up.

Orange County’s dive team was called in to help with removing the body, while Maitland Fire and Rescue came on to the scene as protocol. Crime scene techs from Winter Park/Apopka and a
