Friday, August 23, 2013 the Defense started calling their witnesses. In the morning was testimony from a Forensic Anthropologist who estimated Hana’s age to be 15 but could be between 13-17 according to Gina Cole. In the afternoon were character witnesses. Interestingly, a family friend claimed that she made unannounced visits to the Williams home. Since they lived behind a locked gate, there must have been some kind of announcement made before they entered the actual residence. Some people don’t seem to understand how different people can be when outsiders are around. I sincerely hope that the jury does not fall into that category.
I have not found very much news from this day. Your best source of news may be #WilliamsTrial. As always, if I find more news stories about this day, I will add them to this post.
