Where Is Denise Williams Now? Here’s What Happened After The Trial

Had it not been for an intuitive mom who suspected foul play after her son’s disappearance in 2000, people would still be convinced that Mike Williams actually drowned and got eaten by alligators. But because of Cheryl Williams’ efforts to reopen the investigation, over 17 years later, the remains of Williams’ body were found and authorities actually confirmed that he was murdered. 

In a shocking twist of events, in 2018 (and on his daughter’s 19th birthday), Mike Williams’ wife, Denise Williams-Winchester, was arrested on charges of first-degree murder, fraud, conspiracy, and accessory after the fact. Her ex-husband and Mike Williams’ best friend, Brian Winchester, was also charged, although he was already in prison at the time. This resulted in a pretty intense murder trial, where Winchester eventually spilled the beans about what really happened. 

What did Winchester reveal during the trial?

He explained that he was the one who lured Mike Williams to Lake Seminole and attempted to kill him by pushing him off the boat. The plan was to make it look like an accidental drowning, but when Williams resurfaced and tried to get out of the water, Winchester shot him in the head and buried his body.

He also confessed that he and Williams-Winchester were having an affair since high school. Both agreed to get rid of their spouses so that they could be together and collect the insurance money. However, Winchester didn’t follow through with killing his ex-wife, Kathy. Still, he decided to follow Williams-Winchester’s new plan to get rid of Mike Williams by the lake. 

He offered these details and led investigators to Williams’ remains in exchange for immunity in his case.
