Col. Williams reportedly admits to murders, sexual assaults

Air Force officer said to have to led investigators to the body of his second victim

According to a report in the Globe and Mail, Colonel Russell Williams’s arrest on murder and sexual assault charges was preceded by a lengthy interview with investigators during which Williams gave detailed information about “about four dozen so-called ‘lingerie break-ins,’ two home invasions that turned into bizarre sexual assaults last September, and the murders of two young women, one a military steward with whom he may have flown.” Unnamed sources told the Globe it was Williams himself who led police to the body of of 27-year-old Jessica Lloyd, with whose murder the decorated military officer has since been charged. Furthermore, it’s believed the murders and sexual attacks were photographed and forensic specialists expect to find “a treasure trove” of evidence on Williams’s computer.
