Pamela Williams Murder : While on the phone with 911, Pamela Williams, 43, was shot and died. Prosecutors allege that Jonathan Banks, James Calhoun, and James Sims broke into Williams’ Amhurst Subdivision home, discovered her cowering in a closet, and shot her. Three men are accused of killing a popular shop manager in her home in south Fulton County in 2013. Jonathan Banks, James Calhoun, and James Sims allegedly stormed into Williams’ home in the Amhurst Subdivision, discovered her cowering in a closet, and shot her in the head.
When Pamela Williams was slain in a home invasion in November 2013, the case was finally linked to a well-known burglary ring operating in the area. ‘Murder Calls: Death Comes Knocking‘ on Investigation Discovery follows Pamela’s final moments and how the authorities tracked down the people responsible for her death, revealing a pattern of similar attacks. So, shall we investigate what transpired?
What Caused Pamela Williams’ Death?
Pamela R. Williams was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, and graduated from high school in 1988. She eventually earned her Master’s degree in Business Administration and spent more than a decade as a manager at a Target store. The 43-year-old was a resident in Fulton County, Georgia’s Amhurst Subdivision, at the time of the occurrence. She was characterised as a caring and helpful individual who was always thinking of others. Pamela had even given her sister a kidney.
Someone broke into Pamela’s residence on the night of November 30, 2013, and she dialled 911 in a panic. She hid in the closet, terrified, but was shot while on the phone with the dispatcher. Pamela had been battered and was unconscious when the officers discovered her with a close-range gunshot wound to her head. On December 2, 2013, the adored manager was brought to the hospital but died a few days later.
Who Killed Pamela Williams and Why?
Following the attack, police combed the neighbourhood for any information on Pamela Williams’ perpetrators. Jerry Link, a security guard in the vicinity, stated he had observed four guys flee in the area near Pamela’s residence. Jonathan Banks, James Sims, and James Calhoun were three of those he recognised from previous experiences in the neighbourhood. They were apprehended in December of that year. Banks was 23 years old at the time, while the other two were 19 years old.
Sims and Calhoun were still living in Pamela’s area, while Banks had done so in the past, according to the authorities. When a home in Fulton County was broken into in November 2012, a 9mm gun was stolen. Calhoun’s alleged Twitter account mentioned owning a firearm soon after the break-in, according to the authorities. Then, a few months before Pamela’s attack, Melissa Burke’s home in Fulton County was broken into the same manner.
Melissa, like Pamela, was shot while hiding in a closet. She survived, though, and when the robbers had fled, she dialled 911, subsequently identifying Calhoun as the gunman. The authorities were pursuing a potential suspect at the time of the incident. They discovered a cell phone he had dropped, which was eventually identified as Calhoun’s. The three males were eventually linked to a burglary ring responsible for over 100 thefts in south Fulton County, Georgia.
What Have Been Happening to Jonathan Banks, James Calhoun, and James Sims?
Jonathan Banks, James Calhoun, and James Sims were convicted of murder, aggravated assault, burglary, and firearm possession in October of 2016. Banks was also found guilty of having a firearm in the hands of a convicted criminal. When Pamela’s house was broken into, the authorities had not charged a fourth man accused of being with the group. Sims and Calhoun were sentenced to life in prison with the chance of parole a few months later.
Sims is still detained at the Coffee Correctional Facility in Nicholls, Georgia, according to records. Calhoun is currently incarcerated at Ware State Prison in Waycross, Georgia. Banks, on the other hand, was sentenced to life in prison without the prospect of release. He is incarcerated in Sparta, Georgia’s Hancock State Prison.
