Detectives look for suspect in White Center homicide


WHITE CENTER, Wash. - King County detectives have identified a suspect in the death of a man fatally shot outside of a White Center bar earlier this month.

Detectives are looking for 30-year-old Billy D. Williams of Oregon.

On May 7, James Little, 30, was shot and killed after he tried to break up a fight, detectives said.

Detectives said Little was attending a birthday party when a group of women got into a fight.

After the fight ended outside and the women eventually separated, Little approached a group across the street when Williams allegedly pulled a gun and shot Little in the head.

“He was loving, kindhearted, even though he had a rough past,” sister LaCreasha Washington said. “He was my brother. I loved him.”

His family spent hours at the scene, trying to make sense of the tragedy.

“My son had his bout with the life, street life and stuff, but he was really changing,” his mother, Yvette Dailey, said. “For whoever to walk up and just murder him in cold blood is just another senseless killing.”

Detectives said they have not released a motive but said Williams has ties to Albany, Oregon and Seattle. He is described as black, 5 feet 8 inches tall and medium build.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Williams is asked to call 911 or can remain anonymous and call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
