NORMAN — Despite hundreds of investigative interviews and DNA testing of at least 20 people, police still have no solid leads in the slaying of a mother and son in 2003.
On Dec. 6, 2003, a frail, homebound Marie Williams, 83, was found suffocated in her bed, and her son, John Patrick Williams, 47, was discovered strangled, garotte-style, in a den of the house they shared at 125 E Linn St. Police believe they had been dead about two weeks before the discovery was made.
“In all this time, after following every lead, talking to countless people, we have found no one who has a bad word to say about Marie. She had no enemies,” said Todd Gibson, the lead detective in 2003 who since has been promoted to captain and now heads the department's detective division.
