After Philadelphia police received phone calls, the mother of 9 was discovered with a gunshot wound to the back of the head and pronounced dead 30 minutes later.
Williams was loved in her neighborhood and known as someone who would make sure the streets were clean and keep an eye on neighborhood children.
“She was the greatest, she was the best,” said her friend Noonie Stevenson. “She did not deserve to die like this.”
One of Williams’ sons, Tyheem Williams, 29, said he had just been talking to his mother hours before on the same street where her body was discovered.
“We always talked a lot,” Williams said. “We talked about anything.”

One man, who had known Williams for some time, believes that the perpetrator could not have been from their neighborhood. His reason? She was so well liked that no one who knew her would have harmed her.
Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
