Email By Claire St. Amant The Michele Williams case is one of the strangest stories I've ever written. It involves a stay-at-home mother in a wealthy Texas town, a supposed intruder and a dead husband.
At first glance, it appears to be a home invasion gone wrong, but there's a darker side to this seemingly idyllic suburban family, one filled with bondage, betrayal and lies. Temptation in Texas As the first reporter to look beyond the headlines, I discovered disturbing details about Michele's past that made me wonder if she was an innocent victim after all.
Very few people wanted to go on the record at first, but once I cracked my first sources, the stories started flowing. It turned out even within her own family, there was a lot of deep-seated animosity. For one thing, there was bad blood between Michele, Greg's third wife, and Kathy, his first.
Each one implied the other may have had something to do with his death--though police never suspected Kathy was involved. Texas businessman Greg Williams was found shot to death, his wife a suspect in his murder.
Family said Greg was known as a hothead who had several enemies. And perhaps most divisive, after Greg died, Michele started dating her older son's best friend, who was 12 years younger.

But he was extraordinarily successful in his business as a computer consultant. When Michele and Greg got married, it was both for the third time.
How they met is a matter of dispute, though at least one relative believes it was through a bondage website. Michele denied that, but acknowledged Greg owned a bondage club for a while.
When Greg was shot, Michele initially told police an intruder had killed her husband. But after more than five hours of interrogation, Michele changed her story to say Greg had committed suicide. There's no forensic evidence in the case because someone wiped down the crime scene with bleach.
After I published my first investigative piece on the murder of Greg Williams, "48 Hours" reached out to me to learn more about the case and much of my reporting will appear on Saturday night's episode "Temptation in Texas.
