Wanted murder suspect takes to Facebook to proclaim innocence


A man wanted for murder has twice posted on his Facebook page today proclamations of his innocence.

"Don't Let Yo Ears Hear What You Didn't See Everything On Tv Ain't Real ...With That Being Said Don't Believe What You See && Hear Cause At The End Of The Day Mf Gone Be Sick #GoodAferNoon," was posted some time after 1 p.m.

Just after 3 p.m., another post was made on an account belonging to Rishad Williams, 21, of 421 Manhattan Blvd.

"When Its All Said && DONE if you wasn't with me you against me I SAID I AIN'T DO IT #nowWatchItPlayOut."

Mr. Williams is one of two Toledo men charged with murder for the death of Michael Williams, Jr.

Michael Williams, 24, was shot in the head and a leg on Feb. 2 in the 1500 block of Ottawa Drive at 4:14 a.m.

Also charged with the death is Tyrone Hoskins, Jr., 23, of 618 Woodland Ave.

As of 3:45 p.m., neither suspect was in custody.

Police are aware that Mr. Williams has been active on Facebook.

On Monday he apparently took some time to log on to wish two of his slain friends a good morning.

Posted on his account: “Good morning Fred & tae,” was posted as a status update some time on Monday.

In Rishad Willimas' good-morning message, Fred and Tae are young men who were shot and killed in Toledo in 2013 and 2012 respectively.

Fred refers to Fredrick Watson.

Watson, 20, was shot three times in his back on June 16 while he sat in a vehicle at Avondale and Brown.

Hoskins was in the vehicle with Watson at the time; Hoskins was also shot “several times” in his lower torso.

No charges have been filed in Watson's death.

Tae refers to Deonta Allen, 19, who was shot and killed on Oct. 18, 2012. He was shot once in his back near Fernwood and Waverly avenues as he ran from the assailant.

Tra'quawn Gibson, 20, is serving life in prison for killing Mr. Allen and for shooting to death his estranged girlfriend CreJonnia Bell, 19.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Williams and Hoskins are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
