Bolivar County Board of Supervisor Andrew Williams passed away on Sunday. Williams first served as a city councilman for the city of Rosedale for 12 years, and as mayor of the city for three years. He then ran for supervisor of District 1, where he served for the past 12 years. Williams made a difference not only on the riverside, but throughout the county. He served the board as president for six years on rotation, and vice president for two years also on rotation.
The Bolivar County Sheriff's Department received a disturbing call after 6 a.m. Monday. Upon arriving at 195 Sandy Rd., three bodies, two males, one female, were discovered. Bolivar County Sheriff Kelvin Williams was still at the scene and said it would take hours to complete the initial investigation. "This was a horrendous crime scene," he said. "We are waiting on the Mississippi Crime Lab, but it looks like they were shot. They were all found inside the home."
