He suffered from headaches when he was put in the ring and the beatings didn't add any good to his condition. He was left in an office after his beating when his conditions worsened and he was driven to the hospital by counselors. There they found his condition to be serious and the doctors asked family members to turn off the machine for him to die as there was nothing they could do.
Was it the beatings or the brain aneurysm as it is stated in his records which claimed his life? We will never know because the management of the school had political ties to the very top of the system. No investigation was done. No examination was done. An expensive kid in the system was gone and the system liked the outcome.
His family has tried to seek justice but now where the school is closed the system tries to shut them down.
May Philip Williams Jr. find peace where he is now. May his family also find peace which might be done if the authorities release all the information they have.
