Perry Williams (Uncle Perry) was my great uncle, my grandmothers baby brother. Our family is devestated by this horrible event and wants these men to pay in the fullest for what they have done. They could have just taken whatever they wanted they didnt have to kill him. Uncle Perry was very loved and a great person. He has suffered in so many ways with the death of his son and then the death of his wife. I really hate his life had to end this way. I know he suffered and for that our family wants the death penalty for these two sick individuals and we will do everything we can to see them get what they deserve. I am so mad and at a loss for words. I just want people to know we will never forget this terrible tragedy, it has really hurt our family in the most unimaginable way. We will always love him and he will never be forgotten. Tara

I am a very close friend of wilkerson and his family. I am very suprised to hear this about wilkerson and callaham. I dont know callaham very well. But I have known wilkerson for almost 20years. He is a very loving, and caring person. I hope they find him innocent. I do feel greatly sorry for the williams family.

I understand from family that Wilkerson has already done 10 years in prison. That is what I was told. He is also a known drug user. I am sorry to the victims familys and also believe this was because of drugs.

Mr. Williams gave these two losers a job and look what they did to him. You can't find good help for nothing these days.
My prayers go out to the victim's family.

Renee,
As Perry's neice, I am as filled with rage by your comments about a murderer being "loving and caring" and "hope they find him innocent" as I am that he killed my uncle for misely money to buy crack. Did you not get the part about them murdering my uncle, attempting to murder a co-worker and left him for dead, setting the house on fire to cover it up, robbery, took his truck and went joy riding, bought drugs, out partying and couldn't care less?? You got that part right? Any confusion? You on crack too? How uncaring!! Clearly you could not be thinking at all when you placed words where the real victim's family is coming to seek comfort and healing and you add to the pain. How could you ever wish a murderer be found innocent. I could never hope for that...... I hope he fries like a mosquito in a bug light on the lake they were working at and I will gladly watch if they let me! ARE YOU FOR REAL????? I have been in denial and you have clearly moved me to the ANGER portion of the grieving process. Your loving, caring WILKERSON robbed my cousin of her father, all she had of her core family left. Her brother was killed in a motorcycle accident, her mother died suddenly in front of me without warning and now her father was murdered horrifically for your friends drug money. Your misguided, unthoughtful words for the perpetrators in this forum are unconscionable.

My Dear Uncle Perry,
As I sit here with tears of rage pouring down my face, I can only hope and pray, that once you made it through the terror, the fear and the pain.....our sweet, precious Honey was there for you. I can imagine her holding out her hand with her warm smile and her big, dew drop, blue eyes welcoming you home where she has been waiting for you all along.....

"Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back." (Luke 6:36-38 RSV)

Uncle Perry was loved dearly and will be missed so much. No one can take back the pain and suffering these worthless and heartless boys have caused my uncle and our family. I keep imagining his face as they stabbed him over and over and hope that these same memories haunt those boys every night while they try to sleep in there little cell. That is if justice isn't served and they don't fry!

My uncle will be missed. When I saw the picture of Wilkerson I new he has probably killed before because of the teardrop tatoo under his eye. They showed my uncle no mercy and I hope they get the death penalty. I will be at the bond hearing along with the rest of our family because we never want them to see another day of freedom.

I surely hope you don't mean show compassion to the murderers? I do believe they were sorely lacking in compassion for the gentleman that they murdered!!
