Williams' girlfriend told police she woke up Sunday morning and he wasn't home.

"She started making calls, trying to locate him because it was unusual for him to not come back or not make contact," Midwest City police Chief Brandon Clabes said.

Monday night, an employee of a business at Northeast 15th and Bryant arrived at work and noticed a truck in the parking lot he did not recognize. The employee found Williams dead inside and called Oklahoma City police.

Oklahoma City police are now investigating the death as a homicide.

"This man had trauma to his body, exactly what trauma is we're not talking about right now," Oklahoma City police Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow said.

The victim's neighbors were told the man was beaten to death. The body has been sent to the Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

Police have not identified a suspect at this time.
