The father of all three children, Jameel Penn, says Williams called him by video chat Friday night to tell him his children were dead. Penn says he called police after seeing his sons on the floor.
“I ain’t got no soul no more,” the father told the channel. “Ja-Yaunte, Keyante, my world, my everything. I’m lost.”
A third boy, 3-year-old Jameel Penn Jr., was found unharmed.
Williams’ sister, Tabitha Hollingsworth, says Williams should be put on suicide watch in the Fulton County jail.
