LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock Police asked for the public’s help on Wednesday to find Quanisha Williams, 35, who was wanted for aggravated assault related to the death of her 1-year-old son. Police were called during the early evening of February 15 to a home in the 1800 block of East Colgate Street.

Police said the child, Quayvon, was lying on the living room floor, not breathing and unresponsive. A police report said Lubbock Fire Rescue and EMS were trying CPR and “life-saving measures.” The child was taken to University Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

An officer was able to talk “briefly” to Williams on the scene. But a police report did not go into detail on what led to the death of Quayvon. The injuries were not described.

Police detectives were called by the patrol officers at the scene.

Police said anyone with information on the case can call Crime Line at 806-741-1000 or Investigator Brian Thieme at 806-300-9858.
