Sixty-four-year-old William Jordan was found shot to death inhis apartment on Anton Street in the Whistler community Fridaynight.
Williams says at the time, he was a DJ at his sister's all-nightparty.
"The DJ can't move. Once he DJ-ing, he DJ-ing. If they go bythat, I got at least 50 witnesses, not kinfolks," Williams said.
That's just part of the information Williams wanted to tellpolice when he turned himself in Tuesday.
Willliams said his lawyer was headed to the Prichard PoliceDepartment, but detectives took him to the fifth precinct near theairport in west Mobile.
"They read me my rights. When they read me my rights, they turnthe recorder on, and said 'are you ready to answer these questionsthat we're about to ask you?' I said yeah I'll answer the questionsthat you want to ask me, but I'm waiting on my lawyer. He's comingdown the street, he'll be here in at least three or four minutes.The man closed his book up, grabbed his stuff. I said where are yougoing?" Williams explained.
Prichard city officials say the law prevents investigators fromasking any questions once a person asks for a lawyer.
The other person of interest in the case is 19-year-oldSkyler Poellnitz. City officials say Poellnitz called police Sundaysaying he would turn himself in. But, according to the city, adetective waited four hours for Poellnitz who never showed up.
Williams wants to know why investigators would not wait just afew minutes for his lawyer.
Williams said he didn't know the victim, but he does knowPoellnitz.
"All I know is I think they caught somebody, and they just putme in because I hang with the boy or something. I don't know what'sgoing on," Williams explained.
Williams believes he and the victim's family have something incommon.
"They just want justice the same way that I want justice. All Iwant is for them to get on there and tell them that I'm not aperson of interest. I'm not a suspect no more," Williams said.
Prichard Police say they still want to question Williams when hecomes in with his lawyer.
