The death of a 47-year-old woman whose body was found pierced with stab wounds in her Redwood City apartment Tuesday afternoon is being treated as a homicide, a police captain said today.Officers had responded to Alycia Williams’ home at an apartment complex at 707 Leahy St. at about 4:30 p.m. after a family member requested a welfare check on Williams because she hadn’t been seen for several days, Redwood City police Capt. Ron Matuszak said.When they arrived, the officers found Williams dead inside her apartment, according to Matuszak. Police believe she had been dead for more than a day.Due to “the nature of her stab wounds,” her death has been labeled a homicide, Matuszak said.An autopsy was conducted on Williams today, and a follow-up autopsy is scheduled Friday to help determine the official cause of death.No suspects have been arrested, but Matuszak said police are focusing their investigation on men who were familiar with Williams. She was living at the apartment by herself, and we understand she associated with several men,” Matuszak said.Because she was found dead in her apartment, Matuszak said police are speculating that she may have known her killer.”Most women who were killed were killed by men,” he said. “And a large percentage are killed by people who knew them.”However, the possibility that the suspect was a stranger has not been ruled out.”There’s no witnesses, no solid suspect information,” he said.
“You shouldn’t rule out anything.”

  • I am a reporter for the City College of San Francisco newspaper: The Guardsman. Alycia Williams was a City College student and EOPS/Second Chance success story, and we take the sad news of her death very seriously. I am working on following up on her case. If anyone has any information (including comments on what Ms. Williams was like as a person) please contact me at [email protected]

  • I hope this killer is brought to justice even thought Alycia was a substance abuser, this individual did not deserve to be murdered in the manner in which what happened to her least to say that she was lone, paid her own bills, and in her own apartment alone. I feel that she knew the individual who murdered Ms. Williams, preferably into drugs and of course had no value of life. Alycia was not from the Bay Are she is from Chicago; at least that is what she told me, but I must say she use to sing in the Church and had a beautiful voice and I suggested to her to be careful; watch the people you encounter since you do not know whom you may encounter. I pray the police will find this individual. I this person can do this to her, imagine what that individual can do to you! I was shocked by her death and can only imagine,-only fathom what that poor woman had to endure. May Alyycia soul RIP. May God bring her MURDERER to justice and I hope that someone will provide information to bring her murderer to justice.

  • This is so sad. I don’t like the way they said she “associated with a lot of men”. That sounds almost like blaming the victim. When I was single I associated with a lot of different men, but most of them were just friends. Maybe there was a love triangle that led to this. ZThis is a decent neighborhood so it is very apparent she knew her killer. This should NOT be hard to solve…

  • The lost of one of my dearst friends is still too hard to take. She gave so much to others. Warm kind and very deeply carring.I pray that the officers can catch this sick son of a $%$$^.

  • This is so sad. I hope that they catch the MONSTER who did this to her. RIP Ms Williams and may God bless your soul.
