Woman Found with Throat Slashed in North Lubbock

A woman was found dead in Northeast Lubbock on Wednesday morning. Her throat had been slashed. Police say they have a good idea who did it. "For her to get her throat cut that's unbelievable, you can't expect nothing like that," says Williams' cousin, James Hawkins.

James is still in shock. His cousin, 36-year-old Michelle Williams, is dead. Her body was found in the 2800 block of Idalou Road. A man walking in the area discovered the body before noon and called the police.

Investigators combed the scene looking for clues, but Michelle's cousin, James, says his uncle knows who did it. "Some guy told him he killed a girl last night, and I guess the detective is going to pick him up," James says. James describes Michelle as easy going, but he says she usually had jealous, older boyfriends. And her killer was definitely someone she knew.

"She just mess with a lot of older guys and they're real possessive. If I can't have you no one else can and stuff like that," he says. Michelle Williams family says neighbors had seen Michelle earlier Wednesday morning, fighting with a man just a few blocks away from where her body was found.

Police tell us they have questioned a few suspects, but no arrests have been made. This is the ninth murder investigation for Lubbock Police this year.
