Published on Friday, May 14, 2021

Investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office have made in arrest in connection with the death investigation of Noel Martin.

 Investigators initiated an investigation on May 12th after the body of Martin was found laying alongside the road at the intersection of S. Florida and S. Washington Avenues.   Investigators discovered trauma to the neck region of the victim and upon completion of an autopsy it was determined that the victim’s injuries were consistent with a cut from some type of an edged object.

Within 24 hours investigators were able to identify 66 year-old, Woodrow Wilson Williams as the person responsible for killing the victim. Investigators learned that the pair had been seated in a vehicle together and at some point Williams attacked Martin and ultimately killed him using an edged object. The motive for the killing is still under investigation.

Deputies with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office F.A.S.I.T team arrested Williams earlier this evening near W. Parker road and he is currently in the Greenville County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing for the charges of Murder and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime.
