Deborah Sue Williamson's house

This is the house where Deborah Sue Agnew Williamson was murdered.

It is located at 1115 82nd Street in Lubbock, Texas.

Williamson was supposed to meet her husband, Doug, at his workplace on the evening of August 24th, 1975. However, she never showed up.

When her husband called their house at 10 p.m. to inquire about the delay, she failed to pick up the phone.

A few hours later, Doug returned home from his job at a local pizza parlor and found his wife's body outside in the carport.

She had been stabbed 17 times.

Williamson was an 18-year-old newlywed who had tied the knot with Doug just two months prior.

Doug's albi checked out, and he also passed a polygraph.

Once he was cleared as a suspect, the police struggled to find any leads, and the case went cold for nine years.

Then, in 1984, a serial killer named Henry Lee Lucas told investigators that he had murdered Williamson. Although the authorities believed that they had finally caught their man, Williamson's parents were extremely skeptical about his confession.

At the time, Lucas was eagerly taking credit for every cold case that was being put in front of him. By that point, he had already confessed to dozens of murders across multiple states.

Sensing that something wasn't quite right about Lucas' story, Williamson's mother and stepfather decided to investigate the matter themselves.

Not long after, they found documents that proved he wasn't in Texas at the time of their daughter's murder.

Consequently, the case against Lucas was dropped.

Later, he admitted that he had lied about his involvement.

The murder of Deborah Sue Williamson remains unsolved to this day.

It is still an active case.

1115 82nd Street

Williamson's body was found on the patio area by the carport, which is on the western side of the house (facing Avenue L).

Her husband, Doug, made the discovery shortly after 1 a.m.

It is believed that the attack took place a couple of hours earlier, at around 9 p.m.

At the time, Doug was the manager of a local "Pizza Inn" franchise. He was ruled out as a suspect after a waitress who worked with him told the police that he had been present the entire night.

Doug believes that his wife was killed by someone she knew.

This theory is supported by statistics, as murders involving multiple stab wounds are often carried out by people who are experiencing intense emotions such as anger and jealousy.

Her killer used a 4-5-inch double-edged knife, which was never found. Although her purse was missing, it is possible that this was done to stage the crime scene and make it look like a robbery gone wrong.

There were no indications that she had been sexually assaulted.
