  • Homicide Detective Featured on "First 48" Murders Wife

    Apparently it was a murder suicide that involved domestic issues.

    http://www.wwj.com/New-Details-In-Ca...uicide/5279690
    Canton Township (WWJ) -- New details emerged Wednesday about Detroit police homicide investigator Ed Williams II, who shot and killed his wife--also a Detroit police officer--before fatally turning the gun on himself.

    Williams, who killed his wife Patricia outside the Canton Township Public Library Tuesday morning, was featured on TV crime-drama show "The First 48", which follows the footsteps of police detectives and airs on the A&E cable network.

    In one episode, Williams said that he didn't understand why people commit murder.

    "When you have a situation, and it was that brutal, you look at it and you're like 'what type of individual would do something like this?' It amazes me that people are willing to just end someone else's life. If I was here for 25 years I would never be able to make sense out of it," Williams said.

    Also, it was revealed that Patricia Williams went to Canton Police Saturday to report that her husband assaulted her, but did not press charges.

    The following day, Canton police answered a domestic violence call at the couple's home. While nobody was there when they arrived, officers found a note from Ed Williams stating that he wanted his mother to have his possessions if something happens to him.

      Detroit deserve all its bad press, but to be fair it's happened elsewhere...

      At LAPD we had (1) an officer wait for his wife and her boyfriend to be in the act. He entered and shot them to death before turning the gun on himself. (2) A probationer who tracked down his former girlfriend and her new boyfriend (both were San Diego? or La Mesa? cops), he killed them, then himself. and (3) An officer who tracked down his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend and killed him before killing himself.

      Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

      Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

        Things like this can happen anywhere, however it goes to show that when it comes to murder, sometimes there is no logic and there is nothing to understand. This officer had probably seen more murders and more lives ruined by that type of action than the majority of people, but in the end, it didn't help or prevent him from committing the crime. I pray for the family of the victims.

          I learned yesterday that my wife's cousin killed herself and her two teenage sons over the weekend. Although I didn't know the woman well, we'd met several times and she impressed me as an attractive, intelligent and caring person. She was a nurse, had no previous history of criminal activity, domestic violence or child abuse. Her sons were excellent students and active in their high school's sports programs. Everyone who knew them; family, friends and associates are in a state of shock and disbelief.

          According to some reports, "Suzy" was going through a divorce and may have had terminal cancer. My wife and I haven't heard for sure about either issue, but even if both are true, it's so hard to believe a caring, sensitive person like this could not only end her own life, but end that of two young boys she loved so much.

          Both situations are extremely distressing, but ultimately no one will ever know what turmoil the officer or nurse were experiencing that led to such horrific actions.

            This happened more than once in NY and even on LI.

              It just goes to show that police stress is a real thing, it has to be dealt with the right way or it will find another outlet. God bless the families involved

                    I've been thinking the same thing. Suicide has always been around but I don't remember hearing much about murder suicides before.

                      It's probably you. What little you actually know about the deceased officers has colored your perception of who they were and how professionally they performed prior to their deaths. Making any conclusions based upon so little (and questionable) information is almost as ignorant as voicing such opinions.

                            I think he's referring to the quality of the photograph taken, not the officers. I thought the same thing when I saw the photographs.

                              Really? Murder/suicide has been around as long as suicide.
