U.S. Marshals Looking for Woman Wanted for Brutal Murder of Boyfriend

Tamera Renee WilliamsDetroit, MI - The U.S. Marshals Service Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team (DFAT) is requesting the public’s assistance with the location of a woman wanted for the brutal murder of her boyfriend in Melvindale, Michigan, on or about Sept. 29, 2018.

The 24th District Court issued a felony warrant was against Tamera Renee Williams, 39, on Dec. 20, 2018, for first-degree homicide, disinterring a dead body, and tampering with evidence following the murder of David Carter, 39.

U.S. Marshals believe Williams fled the state in mid-October 2018 and has not been seen or heard from since she was identified as a person of interest.

Williams has worked in the medical field and as a travel agent. She is known to be a world traveler and has ties throughout the U.S.

“No matter where a fugitive may try to flee or hide, we will pursue them, find them and bring them to justice,” said acting U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Michigan Mark Jankowski.

Williams also has close involvement with the Order of the Eastern Star. She should be considered armed and dangerous.

Any information can be provided to the U.S. Marshals 24-hour tip line at 313-234-5600 or via email at
