MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) — Moss Point police are investigating the stabbing death of a long-time educator who had been a principal at several area schools and spent a while as the Moss Point school district's interim superintendent. Willie C. Williams was 64.
Police Chief Art McClung tells news outlets report that a friend who had been trying for days to reach Williams went to his home on Friday and found his door open, his truck gone, and his body on the floor.
Natalie Chambers Nettles grew up in Williams' neighborhood and attended the University of Southern Mississippi with him. She says, "Anyone who ever attended a school in Moss Point knew him."
McClung asks anyone who saw someone go in our out of Williams' house between Wednesday and Friday should call police.
