According to police officials, the altercation transpired on April 29, 1982. It was the last time Denise Frazier-Daniel, the mother, witnessed her daughter, Olisa Williams, alive.
According to the announcement of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel this week, Williams is in the process of being repatriated from Chicago on his arraignment.

In those instances, my office is ready to give cases another look to ensure the right decision is made,” reported WLNS.
