Family of NYC woman whose body was found in a sleeping bag calls for justice

NEW YORK -- Family and friends are speaking out after a woman's body was found wrapped in a sleeping bag on a New York City street.

Yazmeen Williams was found Friday just before 5 p.m. on 27th Street between Second and Third avenues. Police were initially called about a suspicious package on the curb. They found a sleeping bag partially covered by a trash bag. They found the 31-year-old's body inside.

According to the medical examiner's office, Williams died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police confirm they have a person of interest in custody. Investigators were seen Monday evening going in and out of a building around the corner from where Williams was found, though police sources say it's unclear where the killing took place.

Police sources say a man was seen on video pulling the bag on a motorized wheelchair. Several people said Williams was friends with a man who uses a wheelchair in the neighborhood, where she grew up and lived nearby.

"We want justice for Yazzy"

A makeshift memorial has been set up near where her body was found.

Williams was just about to start a new job at the city's Department of Housing Preservation on Monday.

"She was looking so forward to living, living her life," her mother, Nicole Williams, said. "She got her degree in criminal justice. She went to Buffalo State University, and she wanted to go back to be a lawyer."

That's a lynch mob.

I predict a NYC mob actually killing someone who commits a horrible crime. There’s less faith in the courts and this is one outcome.

R3 totally agree. New Yorkers are tough. They are no nonsense. I agree that they will take justice in their own hands. Luckily the police acted fast on this one. Let's see of the courts do their job now.

Such a waste.

I feel so badly for that poor girl and her family. Such a bright future ahead destroyed. People have lost their fucking minds. If he's the killer I hope he gets the death penalty. I'll volunteer to pull the switch.

I wonder how many felony warrants this perp has had against him that were either dismissed outright by Soros DA Alvin Bragg or plea bargained down to insignificance by Bragg and New York judges.

Chad Irish, person of interest in killing of Yazmeen Williams, whose body was found in sleeping bag, ID’d as parolee with long rap sheet

Irish, who is currently out on parole for a Bronx robbery and assault, has 21 priors to his name, the sources added.

He served three years in prison after he was convicted of attempted arson for trying to blow up his uncle’s home in The Bronx back in 1994 by dislodging a gas pipe and two propane tanks, sparking an explosion.

[QUOTE]“I’m not sure if their relationship was romantic or if it was more for convenience,” the chief said. “She would just stay with him. I’m sure there was some narcotics arrangement involved.”

I was wondering why she would ever get involved with such trash.

R9 Fuck. There is no excuse for the public being exposed to a guy like this. Poor girl. Absolutely awful.
