“On Friday, December 30, 2011, police were called to 1511 Cambridge Drive, Cocoa.  Initially the call came in as a domestic disturbance, but police quickly learned that Glenda Glennette Lewis (09/08/71) was dead and the disturbance heard over the phone was Lewis’ family detaining Calvin Lamal Williams (02/05/75) who had spent the night in Lewis’ home.

Lewis and Williams had a long history of domestic violence, with the police being called to her residence at least six times in the six months prior to her death.  Witnesses told police that Lewis kicked Williams out of her home in October of 2011, and had obtained a restraining order against Williams.  However, just two weeks before her death, against the advice of her family and friends, at Lewis’ request, the injunction was rescinded on December 14, 2011.

An autopsy performed on Lewis was inconclusive, with the Medical Examiner unable to determine the cause of death. Without the cause of death or the ruling that the death was a homicide, police were unable to charge Williams in Lewis’ death. Police did arrest Williams for violation of probation and Williams has remained incarcerated this entire time. However, Williams is scheduled to be released from prison on July 17, 2013.

An autopsy performed on Lewis was inconclusive, with the Medical Examiner unable to determine the cause of death.  Without the cause of death or the ruling that the death was a homicide, police were unable to charge Williams in Lewis’ death.  Police did arrest Williams for violation of probation and Williams has remained incarcerated this entire time.  However, Williams is scheduled to be released from prison on July 17, 2013.

Williams’ release once again reminds Lewis’ family that the man they feel is responsible for Lewis’ death has not been charged and will no longer be incarcerated.

Police have interviewed family and friends of Lewis and a former girlfriend of Williams.  Police know Williams to be a violent person, but at this time, without a cause of death, or the death being ruled a homicide, police cannot charge Williams.

Family and friends of Glenda Lewis are asking for the public’s help.  They are asking anyone who knew Lewis or Williams to come forward with any information they might have.  They family has had to deal with a tragedy and no closure.”
