Memphis Police discovered the bodies of Cecil Dotson (shown in photo), Hollis Seals, Marissa Williams, Shindri Roberson, and two young boys at the house on Monday, March 3, 2008. This wasn't a simple killing like we see on television. These killers were sadistic. The children were killed and cut-up and the parents were forced to watch.
These were horrific murders. One of the victims, Shindri Roberson, was shot twice in her kneecaps and then suffocated. One of the toddlers died with a knife stuck in its skull and all of the fingers were cut off another child. [SOURCE].
Another victim, Marissa Williams, filed a restraining order against Cecil Dotson in 2005. Despite the order of protection, it appears that Marissa Williams lived with Dotson and their children at the Lester Street house. The two of them were dysfunctional. The police came to their home twice last month for violations of the restraining order.
A few weeks ago a police report filed showing Cecil Dotson and his 33-year old brother, Jesse, getting into an argument. According to the incident report, Jessie tried to take his brother's leather coat. When Cecil told him to give it back, Jessie pulled a gun.
Jesse Dotson is not a good guy. He was released from prison last year after serving 13-years in prison on a second degree murder charge. While in prison officials say he was disciplined 29-times. The incidents include hurling verbal threats at employees. He's also accused of shanking an inmate. Investigators say they believe it was gang related ... perhaps the MS-13 gang? We shared information on the MS-13 gang with you in our earlier discussion of the Jamiel Shaw murder. Sources now say that the Lester Street massacre may be result of drug incident involving the MS-13 gang and Cecil Dotson. [SOURCE]
Officials at Le Bonheur Children's Medical Center released a statement today regarding the children who survived the Lester Street attack. "The three children who were victims of the Lester Street incident remain in protective custody at Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center. With the Memphis Police Department, we continue to ensure that these children are never alone and are receiving the care they need. The security of our patients is our top priority, today and every day.
