Florida Inmate Released For Covid-19 Risk, Arrested For Murder Next Day

Edward Williams is now facing second-degree murder charges. | Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office

PerezHilton.com – Joseph Williams was one of more than 100 inmates released in March 2020 from a Florida prison as part of a public health order to lower the risk of spreading COVID-19.

But not even one day later he was back in police custody after allegedly killing a man nearly immediately upon being released from jail during the pandemic sweep.

Surprise birthday parties and guns just don’t mix. In early October 2019, a Norwegian man named Christopher Bergan flew to Gulf Breeze, Florida to surprise his father-in-law Richard Dennis for his 61st birthday party.

To complete the surprise, Bergan hid in the bushes in Dennis’ backyard on his very first night in Florida, waiting to jump out to surprise the man with his carefully laid-out plan.

Just one (tragic) problem: Dennis, who had been startled earlier in the night with another family member banging on his door, mistook Bergan for an intruder when the younger man jumped in surprise, and the 61-year-old shot his son-in-law.

Regrettably, Dennis’s aim was perfect — the bullet went straight through Bergan’s heart — and the younger man died at the scene … READ MORE.
