Here is an update where we are as of TODAY!
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating Zadok's killing. We expect the GBI to conclude their investigation in mid-July. At that point, the GBI will submit its investigative file to Dekalb District Attorney Sherry Boston. The family met with DA Sherry Boston on May 26, 2021. DA Boston said that it will take a maximum of 6 months for her office to decide whether criminal charges are warranted against the officer who fired shots into Zadok's home. We are demanding that this officer be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Fighting for Zadok's Justice has been nearly a full-time job for Zadok's family as well as a financial hardship.
We are increasing the amount of the Gofundme to assist us with expenses related to our fight for Zadok's Justice as we seek to spread awareness about his murder and organize events, including mural planning, community organizing, travel expenses, marketing expenses, and legal expenses. We thank the community in advance for their generosity in helping us fight for justice.
No amount is too small or too great. We were forced into this position because Zadok was murdered. We must hold those responsible 100% accountable! We are all so heartbroken and traumatized by Zadok's murder.

My name is Abrianah Witchett. I am from Decatur, Georgia, and I am the niece of my late uncle, Matthew Zadok Williams. I will be the recipient of this fundraiser. I will use these funds/donations to pay for my uncles funeral, legal, social justice and community organizing efforts and expenses related to the unlawful killing of my uncle.
Our beloved baby brother, the youngest of six children and the only son was killed heartlessly by Dekalb County Police in his own home on April 12, 2021, although the family was not notified until nearly 24 hours later. We have eyewitness accounts that contradict the false news reports which reportedly states the police's side of the story.
Matthew "Zadok" Williams was a son, brother, uncle, cousin, and a 35 year old responsible man who never had the opportunity to grow old. Zadok would not kill an insect. That's how gentle he was. He was shot in his own home. The media has portrayed him as a “knife welding man” but eye witnesses did not see a knife.
Our Zadok was beautiful. He was a home owner. An avid reader. An activist. A humanitarian. A pacifist. He was full of life and love so exuberant that he radiated. He was the only boy out of 6 children and we cherished every moment with him. My family is devastated by this lost. Our lives will never be the same.
No one deserves to be killed like this. It must stop. We deserve to be safe in our own homes. Please share this post. We are seeking your support in our pursuit for justice. Anything helps. #JusticeForZadok #JusticeForMatthewZadok
