Cold Justice: Season 1: Episode 1 “Mother”

The 2006 death of Mattie Williams in Collinston, Louisiana, is investigated. On August 28, 2006, a friend of Mattie’s went to her home after receiving no response to repeated attempts to reach her. The friend noticed blood on the outside wall of the house and called the police, who found no trace of Mattie inside. Many of Mattie’s church friends and family gathered to search for her. She was found six hours later, stabbed and bludgeoned to death, in a remote wooded area about three miles from her home. Three men, including Mattie’s own son, were indicted for the second-degree murder of Mattie. The 3 accused are currently in jail awaiting trial.

Three men, Stanley Mitchell, Renwick Jackson, and John Williams, are now charged with 2nd degree murder in the death of 67-year old Mattie Williams in Collinston back in 2006.

John Williams (pictured above) is the victim’s son.

At an arraignment on Monday, Jackson and Williams, who had already been charged with obstruction and home invasion in the case, pleaded not guilty to all charges against them.

Deputies found Mattie Williams’ body miles from her home, outside an abandoned house near Collinstin.

Investigators have been working to gather evidence in the case ever since.

The first arrest in the case was made in March of this year.
