Womack tells 13 ON YOUR SIDE Frost was in the car with Williams when she was shot but he fled the scene before police could arrive and had not been seen or heard from since.

Frost was rushed to the hospital where she later died, according to police.

Online court records show he has a perjury conviction. 

No suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made in Frost's death. Anyone with information is asked to call Grand Rapids police or Silent Observer.
