'Why did my mom and brother have to die?' 2 years, no answers in police-involved shooting

Two years after a 73-year-old woman and her 39-year-old son were killed during a police standoff in northwestern B.C, there are still no answers as to why they were shot outside their home in a small village of around 300 people.

"Why did my mom and brother have to die?" asked Shonte Williams, referring to the the incident that took the lives of Shirley and Jovan Williams in Granisle, B.C., about 150 kilometres east of Smithers.

Shone Williams said she's received few updates from officials since the deaths.

"Every time I've chatted with [investigators] I'm told, 'Oh, it's just a little bit longer,'" said Williams.

With few official details, Williams has tried to piece the story together herself. She said she's spoken to witnesses and has been upset by some of the details.

"Knowing that they were killed, and I know exactly where... it was horrible," she said.
