As William Walker’s body hung inside a state correctional facility near Orlando on New Year’s Eve, letters that he had written before his death were enroute to his parent’s Port St. Lucie home.
Two letters have already arrived and more may be coming. His mom, Suzanne Walker, hasn’t been able to work up the courage to open them.
The Florida Department of Corrections confirmed his death on Friday. But they would not release other details about the Dec. 31 death. Walker said officials told her he hanged himself.
William Walker had been at the Central Florida Reception Center since Dec. 4. He was scheduled to be moved from the holding facility, which is in east Orange near State Road 528, to serve his sentence at a state prison within two weeks, his mother said.
