Family, friends remember Pelham murder victim

PELHAM, GA (WALB) -

Family members remember 32 year old Anthony Williams Junior, as Pelham Police continue their search to find the fifth suspect wanted in connection with his murder.

Neighbors comfort Anthony Oliver and his wife Zita Oliver, after learning about what happened to Anthony Williams Junior, also known as Lil' Quack to his father.

"I'm always going to love my son and remember who he was and what kind of person he was. A good son, a good son. Loved by everyone.  He's going to be missed by a lot of people.  A lot of people are going to be missing him," said Anthony Oliver. "Always smiling. Good person.  I mean, I never had a problem with him getting in trouble with anyone."

Police say a fight started after a game of basketball at the old high school gym.  The brawl between the two groups of people was short lived,  and parted ways,  but the fight wasn't over.

"They still had some animosity toward each other.  They met up on Cemetery Road.  All indications are that they met up there to engage in a fight again," said Rod Williams.

Assistant Chief Rod Williams says that's when two men started shooting, Williams Junior was shot in the lower abdomen and transported to the hospital.  He later died of his injuries, almost 16 years to the day that his brother died in a drowning incident.

"It's a hell of a month, it's a hell of a month," said Oliver.

Today.. police arrested 24 year old Donterius Almond,  19-year-old Kentarius Ervin,  21-year-old Roderick Williams,  and 21 year-old Ken Jenkins.  They are still on the lookout for 19 year old Shaquille Crimley.

But the victim's family wants to remember the good times. "That smile.  I mean I will never forget that smile. He was always smiling," said Zita Oliver.

His family says they forgive whoever did this, because they have God to answer to next. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Shaquille Crimley, call Pelham Police.
