Kierstyn Williamson Wiki – Kierstyn Williamson Biography

Agents arrested two people in connection with the death of a missing 18-year-old from South Carolina. Investigators said the victim died after meeting someone through an online dating site, according to WSOC-TV. In a news release Wednesday, Union County, North Carolina, sheriff’s deputies said they began investigating the disappearance of Kierstyn Williamson, who also went by Jacob, on Sunday. Williamson was reported missing by family members in Laurens, South Carolina, after he was last seen or heard from the night of June 30.

Laurens is about 50 miles from the Georgia border. Investigators said Williamson had been speaking with a man online and that the two planned to meet in person for the first time on Friday night. They said Joshua Newton picked up Williamson near the restaurant where the 18-year-old worked in Laurens and drove the victim back to his home in Monroe, more than two hours away.

Family and friends became concerned when they didn’t hear from Williamson, and Union County deputies were told Williamson may have been with Newton at his home. “I think they had planned to meet up and spend some time together on a date and that’s where [Williamson] met him. That was the plan,” said Union County Lt. James Maye. “And unfortunately, it ended with the loss of [Williamson’s] life.”

Kierstyn Williamson cause of death

After spending 36 hours investigating the circumstances surrounding Williamson’s disappearance, the sheriff said a body believed to be Williamson’s was found Tuesday afternoon. Investigators found the body on the side of Mangum School Road in South Carolina, just a few miles from Newton’s home.

Investigators believe Newton killed Williamson at his home and that his girlfriend helped him hide the body. Officers took Newton and 22-year-old Victoria Smith into custody and classified the case as a homicide investigation. Joshua Newton, 25, has been charged with first degree murder and obstruction of justice. Smith, Newton’s girlfriend, has been charged with obstruction of justice and covering up after the fact.


WSB-TV’s sister station, WSOC-TV, spoke Thursday with Williamson’s uncle, Chad Bible. “[Williamson] was very, very confident…he didn’t see the evil in the world. That didn’t register with [Williamson], that was nothing,” he said.

Now the family is left with so many questions. “You don’t go out of town one day and decide one day, ‘I’m going to go out of town, pick someone up and kill them.’ That doesn’t cross your mind,” Bible said. “Why… what did he do? What did you try? You’re wasting your life and you ripped our hearts out.” Investigators said Williamson also went by the names Jacob, Payge and Mackennah.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim in this case as they begin to mourn this unimaginable loss,” Sheriff Eddie Cathey said in a statement. “Over the past several days, the men and women of the Union County Sheriff’s Office have dedicated themselves completely to this case and to ensuring that the individuals responsible for this tragic loss are brought to justice.”
