Memorial Block Party Held as Police Hunt for Murderer
DAYTON-- It's been almost seven months since 22-year-old Karll Williams was gunned down on his front porch on Brightwood Avenue, and his murder is still unsolved. Family and friends held a block party Saturday afternoon to raise awareness for the case.
People from the Five Oaks neighborhood gathered at the scene of the crime to share memories, play games, and just be together.
"Karll was the rock to our family, and so it was a great loss losing him," said Karll's mother Karla Powell at the event. "I have my bad days but I have three other children but I keep going, keep going keep putting Karll's name out there."
Dayton Police detectives who have been working on the murder case were also in attendance. They say there has not been any developments since Karll was shot on January 27. He died in the hospital on January 28.
"A lot of times people will have information but they haven't heard anything so they think it's been solved this lets them know that hey were still looking were still investigating this," said Sgt. Richard Blommel of the Dayton Police homicide unit.
'The one thing I think about is that gun crime does so much harm. Not just in terms of the fear in neighborhoods where it happens but also the impact on this family," said Montgomery County Commissioner Dan Foley who was also at the event.
Karll Williams was a 2011 graduate of the Summit academy. He leaves behind a large family and a young son. His mother hopes awareness of the murder will bring change to the neighborhood.
"Stop the violence stop these senseless killings," said mom Karla Powell, "Because us moms have a lifetime of suffering. I don't want to have to put these block parties on... stop the violence... stop!"
Anyone with information on who may have been involved in the murder of Karll Williams is asked to call the Dayton Police Department; 333-COPS.
