COUNCIL CHRONICLE – At the beginning of this week, the Cass County law enforcement officials arrested 21-year-old William Hillman on suspicion of murdering his adoptive mother and her 21-year-old son. Based on the police report, the Minnesota mentally ill man had several run-ins with the authorities for the past two years, being charged and prosecuted for assaulting his 42-year-old adoptive mother.
Minnesota Mentally Ill Man Diagnosed with Schizophrenia, ADHD, Personality Disorder
William Hillman, a deeply troubled man from Minnesota, was once again arrested by the authorities but, this time, on murder charges.
As the police records reveal, Hillman has had legal trouble ever since he was adopted in 2016 by 42-year-old Denise Mcfadzen who also had a 21-year-old son.
On the 10th of April 2016, the law enforcement agents were summoned by Mcfadzen to her Pine River home after Hillman assaulted her. Geneva Derbyshire, Denise’s mother, told the authorities that Hillman attacked the woman while she was asleep.
According to Hillman’s arrest warrant, the suspect entered the woman’s bedroom and began punching and cussing her. The suspect kept telling Denise that he could hear her hissing from the other room and that he was bothered by the sound.
Dr. Charles Chmielewski, a court-appointed psychologist, examined Hillman on the 13th of May. In his court report, Chmielewski noted that Hillman was too mentally ill to stand before the jury, diagnosing him with schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder, and severe personality disorder.
After receiving treatment at a psychiatric facility, Hillman was released home in November. However, on Tuesday, following a 911 call, the Minnesota mentally ill man would be once more taken into custody.
While conducting a house search, the authorities found Denise and Dalton, her 21-year-old son, lying on the floor. Both were declared dead at the scene. A preliminary investigation revealed that Hillman might have murdered them.
