CHICAGO (CBS) — A Chicago woman who lost her son to street violence said if more parents were doing what she’s doing, police might be able to solve more murders.
Rekeia Williams is not your typical grieving mother. She’s been reviewing a box full of documents, including morgue photos of her son Antonio Alves, hoping to find clues about who shot and killed him last summer.
“Oh my God, they thought that I was going to be traumatized,” Williams said. “But I really just wanted to get to the bottom of things. It wasn’t an emotional thing. It was more so that I want to be involved.”
