Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Homeless man with violent history arrested in ‘completely random’ slaying of Florida teen”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A homeless man in southern Florida was arrested this week for fatally stabbing a teen that was found in Palm Beach Gardens last month.

Palm Beach Gardens Chief Clinton Shannon said that Semmie Lee Williams, 39, who has a history of random violence, was arrested in Miami Wednesday on first-degree murder charges in the death of 14-year-old Ryan Rogers.

Rogers, a high school freshman, went to ride his bike early in the evening of Nov. 15 and never came home. The body of the teen, who court records say was stabbed in the head multiple times, was found the following day beside an overpass on Interstate 95.

Authorities do not know why Williams, who has no known ties to Palm Beach County, about 80 miles north of Miami, would have been in the area.

Williams, according to court records, denied ever crossing paths with the boy, but his DNA was found on headphones discovered at the scene and Rogers’ blood was found on a bandana in the man’s backpack. Williams also matches the description of a man caught on surveillance footage heading in the direction of the body’s dump site in the minutes after Rogers’ cell phone stopped moving.
