Martin WilliamsPLATTE COUNTY, MO – Police have arrested a man after the body of 35-year-old Tangela Fisher was found stuffed inside a homemade wooden box.

The box, and its gruesome contents, were found Friday morning in a dry creek bed off East Dye Store Road. It hasn’t been reported how detectives eventually identified 51-year-old Martin Lee Williams as a possible suspect, but when he was interviewed he admitted to accidentally killing Fisher while the two did drugs inside his home.

According to Williams, he prepared a syringe containing a controlled substance for both of them to use, then injected it into Fisher’s arm. When Fisher became unresponsive, Williams decided not to call for help and let her die of a drug overdose.

Now the proud owner of a dead woman, Williams decided it would be in his best interest to dispose of the body. So, using a bit of ingenuity and some tools, Williams used some scrap wood and a ping-pong table to craft Fisher a coffin. Once completed, Williams placed Fisher in the box and then dumped it where it was later discovered.

Williams was arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter and abandonment of a corpse.

I mean no disrespect to Fisher’s friends and family,  but I’m a little impressed with the impromptu work Williams did with that box. Maybe it’s because I can build jack and shit, but even while high on drugs with a dead woman in his house, Williams was able to craft a functioning box that carried dead weight.

    You so silly…I get this way when I am exhausted. Are you by any chance in need of a nap?

  • Buffettgirl

    Hell yeah! Preferably one with my man… oops, see, there it is again… Yes, I need a nap badly, woke up at 4:45 in the morning yesterday instead of 6:45, worked a 9.5 hour day, no lunch day, went straight to the volunteer music program Boyfriend and I run for Veterans, got home at almost 9:30 last night where I caught a second wind and ended up being awake until 3:45 this morning. Woke up at 7:40 and was 45 minutes late to work this morning! And tonight is Boyfriend’s birthday so I’m taking him to an MLS game. Ah hell, I can sleep when I die right? 😉

    I read the headline and all I could think of was Did he make her squeal like a pig?

  • True

    I cannot imagine the look on the face of the person who opened that box and got the first look at what was inside.

  • JGo555

    What if the ping pong table had his nickname scratch into it and because he was so used to it, he didn’t see it…?
