JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville family is still looking for answers four years after a beloved member was beaten to death in 2019 in the Bunker Hill area.

“He was all about family,” said Antoinette Clemons.

Clemons wants answers after her uncle, 66-year-old Lucious Williams, was beaten to death and killed in April 2019. Since then, no arrests have been made in this case.

“It’s been four years. We don’t have any leads or any information about what happened to him,” Clemons told Action News Jax.

Clemons says her uncle did not deserve what happened to him.

“We just want to get to the bottom of it. Our family members would appreciate it if someone had it placed on their heart to just come forward with anything they have,” said Clemons.

“Lucious is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet in life,” Lawrence Johnson told Action News Jax’s Nick Gibson.

Johnson was best friends with Williams for many years. He said that the day that Williams died, he was supposed to call him, and now, he regrets that he never had a chance to speak with him one last time.

However, Johnson is hopeful, just like Williams’ niece, that someone will come forward with information.

“I’m a true believer that if you take someone’s life, then you should suffer the same fate. The persons that are responsible should all be tried and suffer the same fate, but I don’t know if that’s not going to happen,” said Johnson.

Action News Jax reached out to JSO to see if there are any leads in the case, but they have yet to get back with us.
