Detectives solicit tips on girl's murder on Causeway

Tampa, Florida --- It's been just about two weeks since 9-year-old Felecia Williams' body was discovered off of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, and detectives are still looking for answers. And the next step in the investigation is asking for your help, front and center on the road.

"I hope that those involved will be brought to justice," said Williams' mother Felecia Demerson after her daughter's funeral.

Detectives agree. And they still have questions about how 9-year-old Felecia Williams was killed.

"The little bits of information that come in are essential to us," said Temple Terrace Police Chief Ken Albano.

Now they're looking to you for help.

For investigators, it's all about eyeballs. Getting as many drivers as possible to see signs on the east and westbound lanes of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, asking for your help and if you've seen anything suspicious along the causeway shore.

"Any information that you could provide could be that one seemingly innocent piece of information we need to finalize this investigation," Chief Albano said.

Courtney Campbell Bridge biker, Martin Morell, says he agrees.

"Well it might take just finding the one. That's all you need. One out of however many thousands that go over the bridge, so in that sense it could be really helpful," Morell said.

Police and deputies are looking for tips about Friday afternoon on May 16 to Saturday afternoon on the 17th when Felecia's body was found.

"Felicia was recovered there on the north side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway, so that area is of particular interest to us," Albano said.

And they say that every tip can make a difference.

A total of 13,000 dollars in reward money is being offered for information that can help.

Temple Terrace police say all but a few investigators are following up on leads from this case. If you know something, you're urged to report it.
