A former lawman and West Bank security guard is out of a Texas hospital and back home, after an ordeal that investigators are calling an abduction.
Wayne Williams drove to Baton Rouge last Wednesday, June 13, and told his wife he had car trouble. When the wrecker arrived, police say Williams and his car were nowhere to be found. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office alerted other agencies that Williams and his car were missing.
We spoke with Williams' father, who said his son told him he was robbed by two men claiming they wanted to help him, but then hit him over the head and put him into his own trunk. The next day, authorities say Williams burned-out car turned up on a desolate stretch of road of U.S. Highway 86 near Tulia, Texas.
Police say Williams was nearby, burned, beaten, hands tied and wearing only his boxers and socks. He was rushed to University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas for treatment.
Williams is a father of two who is called a great family man by his former neighbors in Gretna. He worked for the Gretna Police department until 2007 and before that for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office. One of his recent jobs was as a security officer at NOLA Motorsports Park, but a spokesperson says he is no longer employed there.
The Swisher County Sheriff's office tells us the FBI and the Texas Rangers are also on the case, investigating the arson along with the alleged abduction.
