Adopted Parents Of Ethiopian Girl, 13, Arrested For Homicide After Girl Found To Be Abused And Starved For Years
The young Ethiopian girl, Hana Williams, 13, was abused most of her life and finally died after her body could no longer endure the abuse. Her adopted parents, Larry and Carri Williams, had called 911 on May 12th to report that their daughter was not breathing.
According to Carri Williams, the girl was being rebellious and was wandering around the backyard staggering and falling down. She also refused to come inside and stripped herself naked before falling to the ground face down with mud in her mouth. This is a pitiful lie, that thank goodness, no one believed. Both Williams’ were arrested and jailed on a $500,00 bond.
Shortly after 1:30am, Hana Williams was pronounced dead due to hypothermia. She had lost around 30 lbs. in the two years leading up to her death and was unable to survive outside in the 42 degree weather. An autopsy also revealed there was malnutrition and a stomach infection which contributed to the poor girls death.
Larry and Carri Williams were also charged with first-degree child assault due to the regular physical abuse of Hana’s 10-year-old brother, who was adopted with her in 2008.
Both children were treated differently from the couple’s six biological children, who ranged in age from seven to 17, according to an affidavit from the Skagit County sheriff’s office.
The document alleges the Williams repeatedly denied Hana food, locked her in a dark closet and beat her with a long plastic tube.
They also made her sleep in a barn, shower outside with a garden hose and even sit outside while the family celebrated Christmas inside.
