Kevin Bush’s mind is full of questions, his heart now empty.
On Saturday, Bush received the phone call he expected years ago when the young lady he helped raise was addicted to heroin. But after beating heroin, Destiny Williams became addicted to meth, then was clean for several months, Bush said.
So he was “stunned” when he learned that Williams, 24, was found dead of an apparent drug overdose at 2:05 p.m. Saturday behind a closed restaurant on South Main Street. Police said Williams was pronounced dead at the scene, and Robert Childers, 45, her boyfriend, was unconscious when he was found by police.
Childers was transported to Atrium Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition for several hours. On Monday, Middletown police said they interviewed Childers about the events that led up to the dumping and they expect him to make a full recovery, said Maj. Scott Reeve.
Police are investigating what happened to Childers and Williams and how they ended up at that location, Reeve said, adding it appeared their bodies were moved.
Meanwhile, Bush, who Williams called “Pops,” wonders what happened to her and how she ended up behind the building in the 2000 block of South Main Street.
“She was thrown away like a bag of trash,” Bush told this news agency Monday night. “She was far from trash. She is someone’s mother, sister and daughter.”
