EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Those who knew Willie Williams say he didn't have any enemies.

That's why many are still stunned that he was found shot and killed in an alley off Powell Avenue late Thanksgiving night.

Family members say Williams will be buried at Oak Hill cemetery Thursday at 11. They did raise enough money to secure a burial plot, but are still working on a headstone.

Police say they do not believe this was gang related.

Police also say even though one of the persons of interest in the case is now also wanted for drug charges, that doesn't mean this murder was drug related either.

Those two "Persons of interest" are Michael Wisdom and Keith Davis III.

Family friend, Lisa Duncan, says tomorrow will be the hardest day but hopefully brings some closure.


" It's hard on them.  His mom is at the point where she can barely function so it's hard to watch her go through that.  The brothers are just angry at this point and everybody just wants answers.  We want to know why?  Everybody loved Willie so it doesn't make any sense to us," says Duncan.

If you know the whereabouts of Michael Wisdom or Keith Davis III, you're asked to call Evansville Police.
