The Facts in the Man Set on Fire Case

Release date: August 7, 2015
Incident: Man Set on Fire  
Date/Time of incident: August 3, 2015/10:16AM
Location: 100 block of Kingsbury Circle



Several inaccurate reports have been made in this case and we felt the need to release the facts.

On August 3, 2015 at 10:16AM officers responded to the 100 block of Kingsbury Circle in reference to a man who was on fire. Witnesses reported that the man was seen running and screaming from the house on the 100 block of Kingsbury Circle.

Our investigation determined that 53 year old Barbara Anne Johnson poured rubbing alcohol on 47 year old James Darrell Williams. Williams does not have a listed address, but there’s evidence that suggests he had been staying at Johnson’s home on and off.

Our investigation also determine that the incident happened inside the home, the two were acquaintances and Williams had access to come and go from the home.

Barbara Anne Johnson has been charged with Aggravated Battery and is currently being held in the Houston County Jail without bond. 


James Darrell Williams is listed in critical condition at the Burn Center in Augusta.

Memphis Neighborhood Remembers Ofc. Bolton

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of  Ofc. Sean Bolton, who was shot and killed during a traffic stop in Memphis, Tennessee. He is one of 19 officers that have been shot and killed in the line of duty this year alone.

We wanted to share this photo, taken in the neighborhood where Ofc. Bolton was shot and killed. In the photo you can see neighbors placing blue balloons in memory of Ofc. Bolton on mailboxes. This picture probably will never make the news, but we wanted to show you how the community was coming together across all gender and racial divides.
