Mental Health Issues

As per Lamora Williams’ family, she has been suffering from mental health issues since her childhood. She even suffered postpartum depression and severe mental illness after getting separated from her children’s father.

Tabitha Hollingsworth, Lamora’s sister, claimed that her sister was suffering from major behavior and emotional issues since her young days and she even attempted suicide.

Her mother, Brenda Williams, even claimed that her daughter tends to learn slower and she was even pulled out of public school and was homeschooled.

Lamora Williams’ Mother Asked For Her Kids’ Custody

Lamora Williams was just 18 when she gave birth to her first child, a daughter. It was her daughter’s father’s family who supported her in taking care of the child. 

After that, Lamora came into a love relationship with Jameel Penn with whom she had three kids. However, their relationship came to an end in 2017. But, Jameel Penn continued supporting Lamora financially and physically to raise the kids. 

After the duo got separated, Brenda Williams, Lamora Williams’ mother, tried to get custody of the kids. She even approached the Division of Family and Children Services to let them know about Lamora’s mental health conditions and even claimed that her daughter wasn’t providing proper feed to her kids.

Lamora Called Her Close Friend Neesa Smith

It was on 13th October 2017, when Neesa Smith, a close friend of Lamora Williams got a call from Lamora. Lamora seemed to be highly depressed and told Nessa that she couldn’t do it anymore, and informed her friend about the death of her two youngest sons: Ja’Karter, who was one year old, and Ke-Yaunte, who was two years old.

Neesa asked Lamora to dial 911 and call the police to confess her crime. However, she first video-called Jameel Penn to show him the kids were dead.

It came as a big surprise for Penn to see his sons dead on the floor. After seeing his kids, he immediately called the cops.

Lamora Blamed Her Cousin For Her Kids’ Murder

Lamora called the cops and told them that she left her kids with her cousin and when she returned home she found her children dead.

She told the cops that one kid was under a “pulled over” oven, that both kids were burned, and that “brains were on the floor.”

Firstly she told the 911 operator that she didn’t know who killed her kids. After that, she put the blame on her cousin for the murder. At last, she said her sister murdered the kids. She was unclear and was giving false statements. 

Lamora repeatedly requested the cops that she didn’t want to go to jail as she was not at home when her kids died.

Lamora Williams Was Accused Of Murder In 2018

As per prosecutors, Lamora deliberately burned her two youngest sons to hide the actual way she murdered them. Even her mother, Brenda Williams admitted that her daughter is responsible for the incident while still confessing that her daughter has been suffering from mental health issues.

Apart from committing murder, Lamora has been charged with other crimes like making false statements, aggravated assault, and hiding a death.

However, there is still no update on whether or not Lamora was found guilty. As she has serious mental issues, high chance that the court might not have found her capable to stand trial and she might be sent to seek medical help to treat her mental condition.
