Mike was born in Huntington Park, California on December 17, 1967.

He was my only child and I was so proud of him. Mike’s Dad said he looked like a little weight lifter as he lay in the nursery the day that he was born.



As he grew a little older we moved to Lisbon, Ohio and that is where he got his first pony named Crud. He loved animals and always had horses after that.



Mike was a good man. Many said he had a winsome smile and Nancy Grace said he looked like a movie star. He loved to dance and loved being a cowboy. His nickname was Rodeo. His favorite vacation was taking a long trail ride in the Pocono Mountains. He had three horses that he kept on 31 acres that he called his “little piece of heaven”.



He was a charming man but also a man’s man, a steelworker who was always working on his home, his garage, his cars, his motorcycle, etc.

He also spent many hours working out at the gym. Keeping his body in good shape was his goal. He hated drugs and smoking!



Mike was found about 9:30 a.m. August 30, 2005, slumped behind the wheel of his car, with the motor running and still in drive. The car was a quarter of a mile from his driveway, over a small embankment.



He had just finished his eighth straight 12-hour overnight shift at V&M Steel. He was a piercer at the mill, operating a machine that hollows out steel that will be made into pipe.



At first, what seemed to be an accidental death was soon determined to be a homicide. Mike had been fatally beaten. His murder has yet to be solved and the $20,000 reward remains in effect.



Mike was a wonderful man –hard working, loving and caring. He was honest, always there to lend a helping hand. His friends always knew that they could count on Mike if they ever needed a favor. He was well loved as you can read by going to his web-site and reading his guestbook at www.michael-williams.virtual-memorials.com .



Our family is devastated and angry; no one can ever know how I feel to have my Beloved Son ripped out of my life! I will never forget Mike or the cruel way he was taken from us. It causes me much pain. His murder has broken my heart and hurt me clear thru every part of my body and soul. It is almost more then I can bare. He was my precious Son – the joy of my life!



I will rejoice the day these animals are brought to justice. It has been over two and a half years and the animals are still walking free. We pray that we find the answers that we are looking for to bring Justice for Mike.



When Someone you love becomes a memory – that memory becomes a Treasure. You are our Treasure Michael! You will never be forgotten!



We Love and Miss You Mike

MIKE







Please don't ask me if I am over it yet. I'll never be over it. Please, don't tell me he is in a better place. He isn't here with me. Please don't say, at least he isn't suffering. I haven't come to terms with why he had to suffer at all. Please, don't tell me you know how I feel, unless you have lost a child. Please, don't ask me if I feel better. Bereavement isn't a condition that clears up. Please, don't tell me at least you had him for so long. What year would you choose for your child to die? Please, don't tell me God never gives us more than we can bear. Please, just tell me you are sorry. Please, just say you remember my son, if you do. Please, mention his name.






What is "NORMAL" after 2 years?
♥Normal is having tears waiting behind every smile when you realize someone important is missing from all the important events in your family's life.

♥Normal for me is trying to decide what to give to my child for his upcoming birthday and Christmas. A new candle maybe? Also knowing that when I die there will never be another candle lit by his box of remain's.

♥Normal is wearing a pendant, that contains a few of MIKE'S ashes, around my neck in remembrance.

♥Normal is never enjoying the music I used to love - it is to sad!

♥Normal is knowing that there will never be another Mother's Day call or card.

♥Normal is sitting at the computer crying, sharing how you feel with chat buddies who have also lost a child.

♥Normal is feeling like you know how to act comfortable with a wedding, a birthday party, a family gathering or a funeral. Also, it is feeling a stab of pain in your heart at funerals when you smell the flowers, see the casket, and see hands folded comfortably on the abdomen.

♥Normal is feeling like you can't sit another minute without getting up and screaming because you don't like to sit through anything.

♥Normal is not sleeping very well because a thousand "what ifs and "why didn't I's" go through your head constantly.

♥Normal is having the TV on the minute I walk in the house to have noise, because the silence is deafening.

♥Normal is noticing every brightly colored T-shirt that any one wears or that I see for sale with a western logo that I know Mike would like. I still look and think Mike would like that. Why is that?

♥Normal is every happy event in my life always being backed up with sadness lurking close behind, because of the hole in my heart.

♥Normal is literally freaking out whenever someone brings up the word murder because I lost my child to murder.

♥Normal is telling the story of your child's death as if it were an everyday, commonplace activity, and then seeing the horror in someone's eyes at how awful it sounds. And yet realizing it has become a part of my "normal".

♥Normal is trying to find the right balloon to fit the occasion. Happy Birthday? Not really.

♥Normal is dreading my birthday's because Mike will not be there with the family.

♥Normal is my heart warming and then sinking at the sight of something Mike loved. Thinking of how he would love it, but how he is not here to enjoy it.

♥Normal is taking pills, and trying not to cry all day, sleep as much as possible because it takes all the bad memories away.

♥Normal is disliking jokes about death and funerals. Bodies being referred to as cadavers when you know they were once someone's loved one.

♥Normal is being impatient with everyone but someone stricken with grief over the loss of his or her child.

♥Normal is feeling a common bond with others on the computer in England, Australia and the Netherlands and all over the USA, never having met any of them face to face.

♥Normal is a new friendship with another grieving mother, meeting for coffee, talking and crying together over our children and our lives.

♥Normal is being too tired to care if you pay the bills, cleaned the house, took a shower, did laundry or have any food in the house.

♥Normal is asking God why he took your child's life instead of yours. It is also asking if there is a God.

♥And last of all Normal is hiding all the things that have become normal for you to feel so that everyone around you will think you are "NORMAL

My prayers to all the families listed on this blog. I think this is a great idea! The more attention to these crimes, the better! People need to see that not all crimes are solved, this is not TV nor CSI where it's all done and over in a one hour show. Sadly, it seems as if nothing gets done. (even when you hand them evidence that was missed during the investigation) In times like these, push may have to come to shove. To all the families..DO NOT GIVE UP!
Not afraid to say it.

MAKES ME WONDER

DOES ANYONE GIVE A DAMN THAT MY SON WAS MURDERED? PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK THAT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO THEM-WELL IT DOES HAPPEN AND I LOST MY SON TO SOME WORTHLESS COWARDS! THE SCUM OF THE EARTH ARE STILL ENJOYING THEIR LIVES. PEOPLE SHOULD BE UP IN ARMS THAT THE MURDERERS ARE STILL OUT THERE WALKING THE STREETS-THEY MAY KILL YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER NEXT. THEN I BET YOU WOULD GIVE A DAMN IF IT HAPPENED TO YOU.
WE NEED JUSTICE!

Michael, You are heavy on my mind today. Somedays are still so hard for me. I keep hoping that this is all some kind of sick joke and you are going to come back and have that grin on your face and tell me that it was all just a joke. Then I would kick your butt and hug you and all would be right with the world.
But I know in my heart that will never happen. It is just wishful thinking.
I hope that you know that you can count on me. I promise you that I will never give up and I will drive everyone crazy if I have to- just to find out what happened to you. I love you my bratty little cousin and I hope you are looking down at me and smiling. Okay...I'm sure you are smiling, but shaking your head at the same time. This is all so like me...LOL..
I miss you!

HATE AND ANGER FILLS MY HEART AS I TRY TO DEAL WITH THIS INDESCRIBABLE PAIN MIKE'S MURDERER HAS LEFT IN MY HEART.

I AM SORRY THAT I BROUGHT MIKE BACK FROM CALIFORNIA AFTER HE WAS BORN--- TO LIVE AND DIE IN COLUMBIANA COUNTY WHERE SOMEONE GOT AWAY WITH MURDERING HIM!
IT MAKES ME FURIOUS!
BEWARE THERE ARE MURDERERS WALKING AMOUNG YOU!

It's coming up on almost 3 years since you were taken from us Mike and I still haven't gotten justice for you! It is so frustrating that time just keeps moving and no one seems to have anything but stories they've heard. Someday, we will get the lead we need, I promise you and FINALLY have some peace! Love, Belinda

I met Mike only once, but that should tell you something by the way that I never forgot that one encounter. He was sweet, funny, and a true gentleman. I never forgot his heart warming smile. I have also lost someone from life that meant the world to me. I'm very close to his mother still to this day, and I know how it has taken everything from her. I am so very truly sorry for you loss, and I PRAY that the animal that did this will pay. I believe that even if our justice system does not prevail, karma will. It's not our place to seek vengence, but I hope that God sees it fit to let everyone that loved Mike witness the retrobution coming to the monster that took him away. Be in peace, Mike, and to Mike's family, I pray that one day you will find peace as well.

Mike's mom your pride (well earned!) shines through in your opening comment regarding your son. Your posting his date of birth, and how he looked as a newborn in the nursery, puts a real point on the fact that every victim - of ANY AGE - is somebody's child. Was somebody's baby.

I don't know anything about your case but what I read in the paper but your son deserves justice and I hope it comes soon.

And let me say, as one mom to another and don't we love compliments but Nancy Grace was right - your son really DID look like a movie star! He was a son to be proud of and you do a lovely job of keeping his memory alive.

Michael, As time goes on the fence posts you placed with your own two had decay and it breaks my heart to get a new fence. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I couldn't believe this handsome man was here helping me out of the kindess of his heart, I have my farm because of you! That stinker of a horse got out, so I know I have to replace the fence, and I know you'd want me to. I miss every bit of you - we were on that same level of thought when it came to our own slice of heaven. I'm blessed to be able to see your mark still here with me, and it will remain forever whether in my site or in my heart. You're my twin soul Michael, and I can't wait to see you when I cross through the light - have my horse saddled up, second thought, it's heaven, who needs saddles, and we will take off for that ride we never got to. I love you! xo

I don't personally know much about this case but only the stories I have heard. From my understanding it was Charlie McKinnon involved. It's what i've heard an other's have heard as well. I'm sorry for your loss. But that is the story that still run's around that area. Take it as you wish. I mean no harm to the Williams family only writing down what has been an is said about this sad story.

Instead of telling what you have heard, why don't you tell us WHO you heard it from. Instead of spreading rumors, saying who it came from might be the only way to solve Mike's case. I am sure when you posted the comment your ISP address was noted (like mine is now), maybe the police should subpoena the information and find out who and where you "heard" this from. Better yet, why don't you call the Columbiana County Sheriff's Office and tell them when, where and who you heard this from. The telephone number is 330/424-7255

Fear not my child
for it is time to come to pass
for thou art not alone
I am with thee
For thou has not come to you out of hatred nor evil
But to give you peace of eternal life
Take thy hands and walk with thee to thy gates of my kingdom and ye shall suffer no more
Those of yours should mourne not your death but celebrate your life in which thou has lived and given and to know that thou art at peace at last Take comfort in knowing that thou shall watch over them and guide them till their days of passing shall come
Take thy hand and come to pass
And you shall suffer no more.

MIKE THERE SOME DAYS I FIND MYSELF COMPLETELY SURROUNDED BY THE GRIEF AND SADNESS YOUR LOSS HAS LEFT ME WITH. IT IS HARD FOR ME TO FUNCTION ON THOSE DAYS-MANY TEARS STILL FLOW.OH HOW MY HEART HURTS FOR YOU!! YOU WERE AN AWESOME SON AND YOU OF ALL PEOPLE DESERVE TO HAVE JUSTICE FOR YOUR SENSELESS MURDER. YOU WERE A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN WHO WASN'T INTO DRUGS- YOU WORKED EVERY DAY YOU PAID YOUR TAXES- YOU WERE GOOD TO PEOPLE. YOUR SCUMBAG KILLERS STILL WALK THE STREETS AND DO THEIR EVIL DEEDS. SO DO GOOD GUYS FINISH LAST? - I GUESS SO. I STILL FEEL DEEP INSIDE THAT YOU GOT INVOLVED WITH THE WRONG BITCH- WHY WOULD A MOTHER HAVE A FEELING OF DREAD AFTER HER SON TOLD HER ABOUT HIS NEW GIRLFRIEND?? THEN HE ENDS UP DEAD?? HIS OTHER GIRLFRIENDS NEVER GAVE ME THAT FEELING. THAT ALL BEING SAID I HAVE NO PROOF; JUST GUT FEELINGS.

WILL MIKE EVER GET JUSTICE ? I SERIOUSLY DOUBT IT; MURDER IS NOT TOP PRIORITY IN COLUMBIANA COUNTY. 28 MURDERS -NO ONE LEFT ANY EVIDENCE! REALLY ??????

HOW FIVE YEARS AFTER YOU WERE MURDERED THEY STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHO MURDERED YOU?
PEOPLE IN COLUMBIANA COUNTY ARE TOLD IT IS NORMAL FOR A COUNTY THIS SIZE TO HAVE 28 UNSOLVED MURDERS. REALLY DO YOU SWALLOW THAT BULLSHIT?

JUST KNOW MIKE HOW MUCH I LOVED YOU AND HOW MUCH I MISS YOU AND HOW VERY SORRY I AM THAT I BROUGHT YOU BACK TO COLUMBIANA COUNTY TO LIVE AND BE MURDERED. I AM SO SORRY - I COULD HAVE KEPT YOU IN CALIFORNIA WHERE YOU WERE BORN AND YOU WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY. XOXOXOXO I WILL FIGHT TILL THE THE DAY I DIE FOR JUSTICE! SO MUCH LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU! MOM

TO THE PERSON
WHO KILLED MY SON
MIKE WILLIAMS

On August 30th five years ago my Son Mike was murdered. No one can ever know how I feel to have my Beloved Son ripped out of my life! The cruel way he was taken from us causes me much pain. I was murdered that day! A Mother’s love is very strong and that love is carried in her heart until the day she dies. The worst thing that could ever happen to me has happened- Nothing could hurt me any more then loosing My Son. He was my joy! I was so proud of him! I love him so much and miss him more then anyone will ever know. The pain of loosing Mike never goes away and I cry for him everyday. There is a hole in my heart that will never heal. Someone took my JOY- HE WAS MY ONLY CHILD. I am so Sad!
TO MIKE’S ASSAILANT:
You with your Silent Voice have spoken the loudest! It says BETRAYAL from your role in life. You have not gotten away with murdering Mike and neither will anyone who assisted you. You may not stand before a judge in this life, but rest assured that you will stand before God and be judged. Romans Chapter 12 Verse 19 says DEARLY BELOVED, AVENGE NOT YOURSELVES, BUT RATHER GIVE PLACE UNTO WRATH: FOR IT IS WRITTEN “VENGEANCE IS MINE; I WILL REPAY.” SAITH THE LORD.
Our family finds comfort in knowing that!
When you decided to participate in killing an innocent man (Mike Williams) then you sealed your own fate eternally. If you want eternal life in Heaven, then you will have to confess yours sins by mouth or you will have chosen eternal life in Hell. If you ever want God to listen to your prayers, then you will have to lay down your offerings and go make things right. Only then will God hear your prayers.
You are your own worst enemy and will never have the grace of living in Heaven eternally with your own families, unless you confess.

Any one who knows about this crime and doesn’t report it, there is a verse in the Bible for you also: Hebrew Chapter 4 Verse 13 –NOTHING IN ALL CREATION IS HIDDEN FROM GOD’S SIGHT. EVERYTHING IS UNCOVERED AND LAID BARE BEFORE THE EYES OF HIM TO WHOM WE MUST GIVE ACCOUNT!
It has been almost five years now since you ended Mike life. He is in Heaven now.


The truth needs to come out and you need to make amends with God. Hell is a place that no one wants to spend eternity!
Shirley (Mike’s Mom)

Oops! Sorry B., I'm posting again. When you say you "can track me", does that mean like stalk me? Or, is that some kind of veiled threat on my personal safety and well being? Since everyone knows that you can track people through message boards, anonymous somehow doesn't sound very anonymous, does it? Another reason this site is a joke. I'll stop by the auction and say "Hello!" and "What a great job you're doing!". Let's see if you recognize me from my url. See you soon.

Damn it! The auction was last weekend! Guess I'll see you at the Rogers Sale this Friday. PEACE!

Belinda Puchajda said...

Well, obviously you have an axe to grind with me...nope, i promise I won't stalk you and have no idea how to track your ip address but what I do have is a pretty good idea who you are...If you would like to continue the threats, I am pretty easy to find as you know. I don't hide. And as for the forum, you absolutely have a right to your opinion about me, my family or any of the victims on this site. If you know me at all, which apparently you do, then you know I will not let ANYONE post things that will hurt the families on here. Read some of the other cases. They can attack eachother, they can attack the police, they can attack me....but NOT the victims. They are not here to defend themselves and it is mean and causes pain to families that have been through enough pain. As someone who has lost someone, you should know this. If you feel I do a crappy job, maybe you are right, but at least I am trying to do something! Anything to keep their cases out there. If you have any suggestions, I would be willing to listen to them. My cell phone number is 330-397-1978. Please feel free to call me anytime and we can discuss your ideas on how I can make this site better!! ps- sorry you missed the auction, it was great!!

Belinda Puchajda said...

To my previous "Anonymous" poster....I will be out at the Columbiana County Fair in a booth right outside of the grandstand...please feel free to stop by and tell me what a great job I am doing and then maybe you can explain why you are so angry. My question is, are you angry with me? Or is it Mike? Did Mike reject you or something? Seems like the comments you left before came from some sort of anger such as that of a jealous person. Just wondering...

BIG Q said...

I THINK THIS NIGHTMARE HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH, SOMEONE OUT THERE KNOWS EXACTLY WHO DID THIS, JESUS CHRIST MAN UP AND COME FORWARD BE THE BIGGER PERSON, WHAT IS THERE TO BE SCARED ABOUT, WHOEVER DID THIS IS THE WEAKER PERSON, JUST BECAUSE THEY FELT LIKE BAD ASSES WHEN THEY MURDERED MIKE,DONT MEAN A THING WHAT YOU SHOULD BE A SCARED OF IS THE FACT THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH YOURSELF, KNOWING YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE TO BRING JUSTICE TO MIKE AND TO US ( HIS FAMILY ) , SO THINK ABOUT THIS IF IT WERE SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY AND I KNEW ABOUT IT, WOULD YOU NOT WANT OR EVEN EXPECT ME TO COME FORWARD, IM SURE YOU WOULD, AND I KNOW I WOULD FEAR OR NOT IT WOULD BE THE PROPER THING TO DO, SO THINK ABOUT IT, IF YOU HERE OF SOMEONE THAT KNOWS ANYTHING CALL THE POLICE, ANY LEADS THEY CAN LOOK INTO MAY HELP, THE FAMILY HAS BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH, IT NEEDS TO COME TO A CLOSE

I am going to be the bad guy and throw 2 names out there in the horse racing field...I very much feel that it is and was the jealous boyfriend of Jacqueline R.

Without bringing them back to this area and requestioning them it will never be solved. My gut feeling is that they KNOW... Why run if you have nothing to HIDE.....THEY BOTH DID

My name is Kimberly and I met mike while line dancing which was something we both loved, I have two children that was 11 and 7 at that time, mike knew that my daughter loved horses so he ask me to bring the kids out to the horsemans trail where he took both kids riding than him and I went for a ride, also I always took the kids to octoberfest at beaver creek and he would always be there on his horse parking cars and he would always give both of them a ride and he always had a hug for me. I loved mike with all my heart, he was one of the sweetest guys I ever met, he never had a harsh word for anyone and always willing to do what ever he could to brighten someone's day, just to see his beautiful eyes and that great smile was enough to make me smile, I honestly can't imagin what he could of ever done to make someone take his life, mike was such a caring and loving guy that never would of hurt anyone knowingly. So mike I will always love you and always know that your in my heart.

I thought I was getting upset for a moment there. @ Mike's mom. I do know all to well how you feel. My daughter Holly was Murdered Aug. 12, 2011 by her husband! She was 22 at the time and leaves behind 2 beautiful children. It is an awful thing to ever have to go through. Never are parent's suppose to bury their children. Her husband is ranting about self defense and robbing... the only people that were robbed is her 2 babies and her family. He is a known drug dealer.. thought someone was gonna get his money and drugs... even if, they are replaceable. My daughter Holly, the mommy to Nikki and Jordyan is not. Everyday is a struggle. && I know for the rest of my life it will continue to be. However, I try to never hate. I have forgave the people, all involved but will never forgive the sin they committed. I have F.A.I.T.H that many people will go to jail but ya never know. I mean he has admitted he shot her right between the eyes and is still walking free... I will stand on my faith, with the father, son and holy spirit by my side and hope we get closure soon. For you it seems you have been on a very long horrible ride. It seems as though it might be coming to a stop or at least that is my hope. They can go after those people. I know I read that they couldn't but they can. I will certainly pray for you and your family that this get's resolved soon. @ Belinda, I am fairly new to the site and just getting to know you. However, whoever was so angry is off the hook. You are doing a great job.. If there were more people like you out there the world would be a better place...As we always told Holly... "Keep You Shine Going! It will make a difference!" ((((Hugs))))

tabikkat said...

I too believe that the Race Track is where this all started. I think Mike saw something there by accident that maybe he shouldn't have. And that the people named in a prior post were also involved. You beat up someone you know, you shoot someone you don't know. He knew these people and that's why he was beaten. Whoever did this - I think they will be caught in commission of another crime and the details about Mike will be their leverage for a lighter sentance...that's just my feelings. He was the most wonderful friend. I will always fight for justice for him.

Soni said...

This chick was with 3 different people all the same time frame.. She is a real home recker. 1 of the 3 she was playing with was married now Divorced. Wife left him when she found out ( SMART COOKIE ) and the other besides Mike was Hank Gensler that also was married at the time he met this Girl. which he actually left his wife and kids for her..They were together for a year or two. Both of these men had a physical atlercation over her and then here came Mike...Mike swept all the women off there feet everybody that knows him can say he was a chick magnetic..

Michael's Birthday is coming up...I haven't forgotten, I will never EVER forget him. He was the best friend I ever had. He and I would talk for hours about life and what we wanted then someone stole him from us... Killers - be on your guard, your time is coming to an end soon...

It is a huge tragedy that anyone would take any life. Please know that the healing hand of God felt your love in your posting tonight, Michael Lee is safe in heaven. Count on Jesus Christ, your savior who will carry your cross and provide peace for you and your family. Hold hands, embrace, and say a loving prayer together after reading this post. There will be a time when good reunites all followers that love Jesus and enter paradise; evil will then be destroyed. The wicked that took your loved one will be discarded. My prayer tonight on the Fest of the Epiphany of our Lord Jesus Christ is that your heart is at peace and that Jesus is now carrying your burden away. Sending a pretty butterfly to keep you and your family company. - God Bless you always, Samuel

THE WICKED THAT TOOK YOUR LOVED ONE WILL BE DISCARDED!

Mike's Mom wants to share something with everyone.
The night before Mike was murdered I talked to him on the phone.
I ask him if his girlfriend was going to move in with him. He said NO I AM WAITING FOR THAT WHOLE THING TO BLOW UP.
NEXT MORNING MIKE IS FOUND DEAD IN HIS CAR.

Yes, psychics have been consulted and very good ones. The one I spoke with was in California, she has been on TV and had her own show on TRUTV for awhile. She picked up on Rosie and that she was "less than savory" immediately! She said that she had something to do with it which I felt too. There are other details I don't wish to discuss and a lot of personal messages to me that were private, but these idiots will be caught, it's just a matter of time, and by the way, he knew who it was. I don't think that surprises any of us.
