Ricki D. Williams IV may have carved “kill fo fun” in the stairwell of the apartment complex where he is accused of killing 16-year-old Gina Burger.
Gina Burger was born into a Florida household repeatedly investigated for drugs, domestic violence and neglect. By 3, she was adopted with her brother, but separated from her other two siblings — who were adopted by another family. Her adoptive parents divorced about a year later. She arrived here in December to visit her sister and birth mom, and six months later, on Monday, June 23, the 16-year-old was murdered.
Compass West Apartments in Austintown, above, are where Gina Burger, shown above in this photo provided by her mother, was last seen by her family on Monday night. Police notified her family Friday that her body had been found in the Tri-County Industries landfill in Grove City, Pa.
