The person exited the vehicle and spent less than a minute walking around the scene. The person bent down on several occasions, apparently picking up unknown objects from the parking lot where Williams body was found before entering the same vehicle and driving away.
Although the date on the video is incorrect, detectives believe the time on the video is right, said Cpl. Don Coppola Jr., a Baton Rouge police spokesman.
If the time on the video is correct, such information would indicate the person showed up at the scene shortly after 3:15 a.m. and left about 15 minutes later.
Williams’ partially nude body was discovered at about 8 a.m. in a parking lot next to an auto shop in the 2600 block of North Street. Authorities said she died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Other than the video, police did not release any other new details about possible leads in the investigation into the death of Williams, a 34-year-old mother.
Police asked anyone with information about Williams’ death to call the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
