Video: Brianna Williams becomes physically ill when finding out she’s person of interest in daughter Taylor’s disappearance

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News Jax’s Bridgette Matter details the new evidence released on CBS47 & FOX30 Action News Jax at 5.

Newly released video among the evidence the state is gathering in the case against Brianna Williams shows Williams becoming physically ill when she is told she is a person of interest in the disappearance of her daughter, 5-year-old Taylor Rose Williams.

In the video released Tuesday by prosecutors, Williams is seen wearing her Navy uniform riding as a passenger and being driven by another member of the military.


“You know, now they’re saying that you’re a person of interest,” the driver said.

Williams nods, looks down, then covers her mouth. She then opens the car door and begins to vomit.

Later in the video, she is seen shaking, not responsive and is later taken to the emergency room by the driver.


Brianna Williams, a Jacksonville Navy sailor, called police in November 2019, saying her daughter was missing from their Brentwood home.

She said she put Taylor to sleep then found her bed empty and the back door unlocked the next morning.

After an Amber Alert and massive search, investigators found Taylor’s body in a wooded area near Brianna Williams’ hometown of Demopolis, Alabama.

Williams is currently in the Duval County jail on child neglect and lying to police charges connected to the disappearance of her daughter Taylor.

Williams has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.

At this time, Brianna Williams is not facing charges in her daughter’s death.
