Murder victim's son, 'She didn't deserve what happened to her'

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The son of a woman found shot to death behind a vacant house in downtown Charleston says police told him his mom may have been arguing with someone moments before she was killed.

The victim, Robin Williams, 59, of Bennettsville was found Sunday morning behind a home under renovation on Romney Street.

The coroners' office says Williams died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Williams' son told Live 5 News investigators told him some people having a party the morning of the murder heard two people arguing and then gunshots.

"When everything calmed down they called the police and when the police got there they found my mother shot behind that house," said Frederick Davis via telephone from Bennettsville.

Davis said he got the news about his mother's murder from his aunt.

"When she told me the news, that's when it really hit me," Davis said. "I didn't expect something like that because nobody deserves to die at somebody else's hands."

Davis says he hadn't seen Williams for two years. Williams apparently was homeless at the time of the murder.

if you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You don't have to give your name and may earn a cash reward.

Police are also asking anyone who knew the victim to contact investigators. Police urge anyone who knew her or her whereabouts Saturday to call Sgt. Barry Goldstein at 509-1313 or 577-7434.
