The mysterious death of Assistant Pastor Henry Williams of the Good Shepherd Pentecostal Church in Chicken Soup Factory, Gardnervile, has shocked the entire tionngregc and the community.
According to reports, Pastor Williams left his wife and children at home under the pretext of going to the Church but went to visit his girlfriend, who is now in hiding, where he met his untimely death.
He reportedly told his wife and family that he was going to the Church for his regular pastoral duty, but his children later received phone call from an unidentified person with a female voice on Pastor Henry’s number, nforming them that their dad’s body was at the James N. Davis Hospital in Nee-Zoe Community, Paynesville.
It is not clear what killed Pastor Henry, but it is reported that an unknown girl took him to the hospital and doctors there pronounced him died upon arrival.
Reports say the deceased Prelate has been a member of the Good Shepherd Pentecostal Church in Gardnervile for about three years, and allegedly told other members of the Church that he had no family and was in search of a job.
Meanwhile, the widow of the deceased, Mama Wilson, said she and Pastor Williams have lived together for 32 years and the union was blessed with six children but they were never married.
She told The NewDawn that her late husband had earlier told her on the day of his death that he was going to the Church, but later that same day, she and the children received a call on his mobile phone number with a female telling them to go for their father’s corpse at the hospital.
It is reported that Pastor Williams was hiding his real family while he was dating this unknown girl, who he had planned to marry on Saturday, October 26, 2013, the same day he was buried.
Efforts by this paper to get the identity of the girlfriend in question proved futile as neither the Church nor community dwellers were willing to disclose the name of the girl and other circumstances surrending the deceased.
