Detectives tried several times to follow up with Willis but she didn’t respond until after her photo was shared on the police department’s social media site, Marbury said.
When Willis then showed up for an interview, police said she again lied about who was visiting her apartment and what happened before the shooting.
Another tipster told police 26-year-old Marcus Fraser was the man at Willis’ apartment. Police charged him with murder, aggravated assault, criminal attempt to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Marbury said.
On Aug. 29, Fraser returned to New York, where he turned himself in on an outstanding warrant related to a prior conviction, Marbury said.
Willis was charged with making false statements to police. Marbury said Willis is aware of the arrest warrant and is considered a fugitive.
