Homeless Drifter Who Made Paranoid YouTube Videos Arrested For Arbitrarily Murdering A 14-Year-Old Boy: Reports – Crime Online


A man was arrested Wednesday for stabbing a 14-year-old boy from Florida last month, whose body was found the day after he disappeared.

Miami Police have charged Semmie Lee Williams, 39, with first degree murder with a gun. The homeless drifter is accused of killing Ryan Rogers, who died on Jan.

The authorities assume that Williams killed Rogers on November 16 near the site. Palm Beach Gardens police chief Clint Shannon said Williams has no known connection to the area.

The Miami Herald reported that Williams’ DNA linked him to the crime. The news agency found the murder suspect’s alleged YouTube page – a collection of videos accusing seemingly random people of “gang stalking,” endangering children and police misconduct.

According to the Herald, Williams ‘YouTube videos brought him near Palm Beach Gardens at the time of Rogers’ murder. They also reportedly helped investigators determine his whereabouts prior to his arrest.

The Herald also reported that Williams was initially questioned but not arrested for being hospitalized under the state’s Baker Act. The law allows someone to be committed involuntarily if it is seen as a danger to themselves or to others.

Shannon said a “chance encounter” between Rogers and Williams resulted in the teen’s death, but he did not provide any information about the effects of that interaction.

According to police, Rogers disappeared after riding his bike away from home. WPLG reported that his bike was found on the ground near his body.


Williams reportedly has a long criminal history, including arrests for assault and assault.

Even so, Shannon said they didn’t know the motive in this case.

He added, “The incident itself appears to be a completely random act.”
