February 1, 2022, The Peoria Police & Fire Departments responded to a call on the 1000 block of Northeast Perry for a toddler not breathing. Two-year-old Emorri Green was pronounced deceased at the scene despite their efforts to revive her. During their investigation they identified Emorri's father, Shamari R Williams, age 25, to be their suspect and was arrested and charged with her death.
The autopsy concluded that Emorri suffered multiple traumatic blunt force injuries.
Williams has now been charged with two counts of first degree murder.
We pray that the truth comes to light, that justice is swift and harsh, and that Emorri's name and life is never forgotten.
