Mans Death Ruled Homicide, Not Suicide

Posted:

Police are now treating the death of a Keller man as a homicide despite his wife’s claim that he committed suicide.

According to the Tarrant County medical examiner, 40-year-old Gregory Williams died from a penetrating handgun wound to the head and brain. He was shot by another person, a report states.

Michelle Williams called 911 at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday and originally told police someone dressed in black had come into their home in the 1400 block of Jacob Avenue in the Twin Lakes neighborhood.

She said the intruder had hit her in the head with a wrench and knocked her to the ground before shooting her husband and running away, police said.

However, police said the physical evidence contradicted the woman’s story. Search dogs found no evidence of an intruder.

Michelle Williams reportedly changed her story and told police her husband had committed suicide. She claimed she lied about the intruder because she didn’t want her 4-year-old daughter to find out how her father had died.

Investigators did find a pistol that belonged to Gregory Williams and a wrench outside of the house. Michelle Williams admitted to putting them there. She also said she struck herself in the face with the wrench to help validate her initial story, police said.

Police said the woman is now considered a suspect in the case. However, no arrests have been made.
