David Carter was a 39-year-old factory worker, and father to teenage son DJ. David had a good relationship with his son's mother Samia Conner and he was working on his own clothing line before his death.

He had been dating Tammy Williams, who he had known since high school, for six months before his death. Tammy worked at a medical centre and as a travel agent.

On 28th September 2018 David and Tammy attended DJ's football game but didn't appear to be getting on well. In Unsolved Mysteries Samia Conner said: "David and Tammy came to the game together, but weren't together at the game."

Two days later DJ was meant to be seeing his father but his mother received a text from David saying he was ill and DJ shouldn't come over. DJ still went over and saw Williams bringing out the rubbish.

Williams allegedly told DJ David had gone out for a walk and he claimed Williams ran into the apartment and locked the door.

On 2nd October David's colleagues told his family he hadn't turned up for work in the past three days. His family then visited his apartment which was unlocked. They found a large blood stain underneath the bed and on top of the mattress in his bedroom, there was a gunshot hole which had punctured the mattress.

David's sister called Tammy and asked where David was. Williams reportedly said she had no clue where he was.

The next day the police called David's father Elton about a discovery they had found in Ohio the day before. A mowing crew had come across a "weird-looking sleeping bag" along one of the roads and it was soon identified to be the lower torso of an adult man.

The only identifying feature on the body was a tattoo of a pit bull on the upper left leg. Elton revealed his son had that tattoo and the police opened a homicide case.

Following the discovery of David's body, Tammy Williams was brought into questioning on 5th October over his death mainly due to the behaviour DJ had seen her exhibit and her lack of concern over her boyfriend's whereabouts.

However, due to a lack of evidence the police had to let her go. Days later a duffel bag containing David's head was discovered which allowed coroner Diane Scala-Burnett, who speaks in Unsolved Mysteries, to determine David had died by a single gunshot below his left ear.

Williams remained a person of interest following her release and fled Detroit soon after her release. She was last seen leaving the Neptune Hotel in New York on 18th October 2018.

The US Department of Justice is still looking for Williams and is offering a reward of $10,000 for information about her.

Speaking in September 2021 the Supervisory Deputy US Marshal Aaron Garcia told Fox2: "We are going to find you. We have been investigating this case for three years and we've had very little cooperation at this point. People know where she's at, they know her location, know how to get in touch with her. They haven't come forward yet."

During Unsolved Mysteries Andrew Battersby from the US Marshals Task Force revealed Battersby said Williams' one identifying feature is a large rose tattoo on her left shoulder.

He confirmed Williams has been accused of homicide, dismemberment, tampering with evidence and felony firearm.

Unsolved Mysteries season three is available to watch on Netflix now.
