Who killed Sherita Williams? It is a question that has haunted her parents for five years, but investigators now believe they have the answer. DNA evidence reportedly links 23-year-old Warren Dixon of Camden in the murder to the then 16-year-old girl.

Harry and Wilma Williams still want to know why investigators say Dixon is the killer.

Both say Sherita didn't know him, except for the two to three months he happened to be in one of her classes.

"He must have been a psycho. Why he would choose Sherita or if he was obsessed with Sherita, whatever reasons, we don't know, but he chose her," Wilma said.

"I believe my daughter happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time and he happened to see her," Harry said.

Sherita Williams' body was found beneath a railroad bridge at 36th Street in Pennsauken on November 29, 2003.

Wilma Williams discovered her daughter's body after receiving what she considers an odd call from one of her daughter's schoolmates.

"She just called me and said, Ms. Wilma, I know she didn't take that bridge, and I said what bridge, and she said the 37th Street bridge and I said why, she said because she hated that bridge," Wilma said. "I look at Sherita's picture and some days I just can't stop looking at her, I miss her so much," Harry said.

The Williams plan to be at the Camden County courthouse every single time Warren Dixon is schedule to make an appearance.

If he could, Harry Williams knows exactly what he would say to Dixon.

"Gotcha. Gotcha. You'll get yours, that's what I would say," Harry said.
