Semmie Lee Williams is a homeless man in the streets of Palm Beach Garden. He has been arrested based on the allegations of Ryan Rogers’s murder.
A 14 years old boy, Ryang Rogers, went missing from his home on November 15. He was found dead on Central Boulevard near its Interstate 95 overpass after a day he vanished.
Now, the police have arrested a homeless man on suspicion of his murder. So, who is this murderer? And, why did he kill the teenager? Let’s find out.
Who is Semmie Lee Williams?
Semmie Lee Williams is identified as a homeless man from Miami. The 39 years old was taken into custody on Wednesday from Miami.
On November 16, Ryan Rogers was found dead 3 miles away from his Palm Beach Garden home. He was last seen riding his bike away from home the night before being murdered.
The police claimed that he was fatally stabbed to death. Police Chief Clint Shannon called this homicide a ‘random act.’ He added that the innocent child had an encounter with a violent criminal.
Palm Beach Gardens, FL police say a homeless drifter from Miami killed 14-year-old Ryan Rogers.
Rogers was stabbed to death while on a bike ride.
"Appears to be a chance encounter by an animal that should not be out on our streets," chief says.

Shannon also mentioned that Williams had no ties with the Palm Beach area, and they did not know what he was doing there that day. He mostly wanders in the streets of Miami and probably used different types of transportation to reach Palm Beach Garden.
He was arrested after the police found evidence matching the DNA found at the scene. However, the officer did not mention how did DNA help them to reach the murderer.
