Vivian Williams attended Monday night’s city council meeting and requested the city to offer reward money to help solve recent murders and shootings in the city.
She explained that Montgomery Crime Stoppers, the Governor of Alabama, and the Bullock County District Attorney’s Office had committed reward money.
Vivian Williams’ son, Kenyatta “Juicy” Oneal, was shot at Club Faces on May 23, 2015, and subsequently died from a gunshot wound.
His murder is still unsolved. Michael Dewayne Washington was also shot and killed on November 26, 2020, at Club Faces.
That shooting remains unsolved.
There have been several shootings with injuries recently in the city which are currently unsolved.
Union Springs City Councilman Louis Murray stated about the violence, “We want to put an end to the violence in Union Springs. We are asking for the community’s help in solving crimes. We need to bring closure to the families.”
The city council tabled Vivian Williams’ request and plans to discuss it with the Police Committee and see what they recommend.
