The husband of a woman who was reported missing earlier this week has been arrested and is expected to be charged with her murder after her body was found under a Dallas bridge Wednesday afternoon.

Dallas Police said the body of 25-year-old Kyaira Nicole Williams was found under a bridge near southbound 8800 Julius Schepps Freeway at about 4 p.m. Wednesday with multiple gunshot wounds.

A CLEAR Alert had been issued for Williams after she was reportedly last seen a week ago near the 9700 block of Walnut Street. Police said at the time that the woman may have been in need of assistance.

Dallas Police Homicide Detectives have arrested Williams' husband, 26-year-old Brannon Williams, and said he'll be charged with murder though they didn't offer any details on what led them to develop him as a suspect in her death.

Williams is currently being held in the Dallas County Jail on a $250,000 bond. It's not clear if he's obtained an attorney.

Investigators have released no other information about the woman's death or the investigation into her disappearance and murder.

A CLEAR (Coordinated Law Enforcement Adult Rescue) is an alert program for missing adults who are between the ages of 18 and 64. The alert is for individuals who may be in danger of bodily injury or death, or if the individual has been kidnapped or abducted.


There are eight kinds of alerts that can be issued for missing or endangered people in Texas. They are listed below with links to a page with more information.
