In his own words tonight, we hear why a man killed his four roommates in Lake Charles over Memorial Day weekend. KATC obtained a taped confession where 52-year old Lee Roy Williams Junior talks about what made him snap.
Williams admitted to beating, stabbing and shooting Terry Banks, Jessica Eugene, Crystal Fruge and Kendrick Levergne at the trailer they shared. Williams was high on crack when he committed the brutal murders and told Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's detectives he was angry because he was being evicted.
Williams said, "I had heard talk that they were gonna put me out and um use a bat and whatever else and if I wouldn't leave they gonna try and take my car and make me just get out... "I snapped, I snapped especially when I seen Terry with the gun."
Willams avoided trial after confessing to the killings on November 10th. He was sentenced to four consecutive sentences of life in prison.
