Young Girl's Birthday Trip Horror - My9 New Jersey

Young Girl's Birthday Trip Horror

Posted: Updated:
East Orange, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

An 11-year-old girl returned from her Birthday trip to Florida covered in bruises, burns, and scars. The girl, J, was put on a plane from Newark Airport to Florida to stay with a friend, Patricia Williams, for three weeks. J was gone for three months before her mother saw her again.

When J’s mom first saw her daughter at the Newark Airport after those long three months she says she didn’t even recognize her. “I mean I was looking at her, but I didn’t really know that was her until she came up closer and grabbed me and started crying,” she said.

J’s mom remembers asking her daughter what had happened to her. J wouldn’t tell her. “Mommy I can’t tell you. She said she knows people down here. She says she’s gonna come and get our whole family in trouble,” J’s mom remembers J saying to her.

When J returned to New Jersey, her eyes were swollen shut. She had black chemical scars around her mouth from bleach. She was beaten so hard there were deep bruises and scars on her skin.

J’s mom said she knew there was something wrong from the strange phone calls. J said that when her mother would call her Williams would allegedly stand over her and monitor the conversations. “She was standing right there, and if I did tell her, like my mommy could tell in my voice because she kept asking me what’s wrong,” J said. The woman would then put the phone on mute and ask J why she was talking strangely to her mother.

J’s mom had trusted this woman, having traveled throughout the country and the world with Williams because of dance rituals they do through their church community. J’s mom never expected for her daughter to be tortured in Williams’ care.

Patricia Williams is charged with aggravated child abuse. Williams made bail and on January 13th they will figure out if there will be a plea deal or a trial.

    Fair Lawn, New Jersey Mayor John Cosgrove says that the town’s water tower is in desperate need of repairs, but it seems that a bird’s nest is the reason why construction hasn’t began yet. “It’s a $1.5 million project. We’re going to paint the tower, it hasn’t been painted in 18 years, so we were ready and thought we could get it done in the spring and be ready for summer and now we have to wait between four and six weeks because we have to wait until the hatchlings fly,” he explained.
