  • Details of Disappearance
    Williams was last seen on the corner of 1700 South and West Temple Street in Salt Lake City, Utah, on March 6, 2002.

    She dropped off her belongings at the residence of a family member and indicated that she would return later, but never did.

    Williams family reported Aletha missing in May 2002.

    Originally police thought Williams disappeared in March 2002. After more interviews, police think she could have vanished as early as November 2001.

    Williams had a couple of felony convictions connected to drugs and stolen property, according to court records.

    In 2014 police reclassified the case as a ahomicide and identified a suspect in the case. Another man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree felony obstruction of justice. At the time police searched the Jordan River, as well as another body of water, a home in Kearns, a glass shop in South Salt Lake and a motor home believed to have been involved in the homicide of Williams.

    Williams was 25 years old and 6 months pregnant when she vanished, and had an 8-year-old son at home.
