At the end of 2018, David Carter, who seemed to be in good shape, disappeared without a trace.
As the investigation continued, it was with sadness that the young man’s family and friends learned that he would never return. David had been brutally killed and his body parts dumped along a highway. The Netflix show Unsolved Mysteries: Body in Bags follows David’s case and includes an interview with Samia Conner, DJ’s mother. So, here’s what we know about them if you want to learn more.
What’s your name?
At the time of the incident in 2018, Samia Conner and David Carter Sr. had known each other for a long time. She said on the show that she liked David from the first time she saw him. Samia thought he was funny and soon after they started hanging out and then dating. Samia was then 19 years old, David probably around 20. David Carter Jr. was born soon after. AKA DJ when they were younger. She thought back to how happy David was back then.
Between 2000 and 2014, Samia and David kept getting back together and breaking up. But despite not dating, they were still close and committed to raising DJ as co-parents. After that, the show says, David was in many relationships. He has been dating Tamera “Tammy” Williams since March 2018. Six months later, while he was still with her, he just got up and left.
Samia said on the show that September 30, 2018 would be like any other day. DJ was at her house and about to go to his dad’s when she got a text from David. He told Samia that he wasn’t feeling well and that he didn’t think DJ should come home. DJ stopped by anyway because he had to pick something up. DJ never met his father, but he recalled Tammy being there when it happened.
For the next few days, David didn’t go to work, so his family called to see how he was doing. The apartment door was unlocked and Samia pulled back the covers in the bedroom to see what appeared to be blood on the mattress and a hole above it. As soon as David’s family realized something was wrong, they notified police that he was missing. In the weeks that followed, police found parts of David’s body along a freeway in Eagle Township, Ohio.
Samia last saw David on September 28, 2018 at her son’s soccer game. She spoke about how Tammy had been staring at her the entire time on the show. Later, Samia thought Tammy knew what happened to David, but when she was freed, she ran away because she had no evidence. Because of this, Samia and the rest of David’s family hope that the case will be solved.

What is Samia Conner doing now?
Samia Conner said on the show that she doesn’t go a day without thinking about David. She often wondered how proud he would have been of everything DJ had done since then. Samia seems to be doing much better today. She is in a relationship and lives in Detroit, Michigan. She also takes care of her children.
Samia is the Training Manager for Digital Connected Services at General Motors, which is her job. She has a degree in Communication and Media Arts. She also went to Eastern Michigan University to major in Administrative Management. Samia likes to travel and follows her son’s football matches very closely.
Today Netflix added the third season of Unsolved Mysteries, a true crime documentary series. The new season has a new set of cases.
Three episodes of the show have been released on the streaming service today. The third involved the murder of David Carter, a Michigan father whose body was found in pieces in a sleeping bag after his disappearance in 2018.
Carter’s case is a new mystery that will break people’s hearts. An interesting person is on the run, and Carter’s family wants answers.
Here’s everything you need to know about David Carter, what happened to him and who the police are looking for in connection with his murder.
What is the name of David Carter?
David Carter Sr was a father who lived in Melvindale, Michigan and was 39 years old. His body was found on October 1, 2018, but it was in pieces.
Carter, who worked at the Magna Seating Plant and volunteered with the Melvindale Junior Football League, was reported missing in the first week of October 2018 after missing three days of work.
Carter and his entire family, including DJ’s mother Samia Conner, went to his son’s soccer game on September 28. He was there with his girlfriend of six months, Tamera “Tammy” Williams, a travel agent and medical center worker. According to Conner, however, David and Tammy didn’t stay together at the game.

How was David Carter injured?
The Netflix documentary says Carter’s son DJ went to his father’s house on September 30 to get some things after his mother, Samia Conner, received a text message from Carter’s phone that he was ill.
DJ Carter’s girlfriend reportedly saw Tammy taking out the trash as he walked to his dad’s house.
DJ told Unsolved Mysteries that she ran to the front door. “When I got to my father’s house, the door was locked. You’d think she’d left it unlocked since she saw me, but I had a key.”
DJ said his bedroom door was closed, and Williams reportedly told him Carter went for a walk after closing the bathroom door.
Carter missed work on September 30, and on October 2, a co-worker asked his sister, Tasia Carter-Jackson, to check on him. When she went to his apartment, the front door was reportedly unlocked and his bed was unmade. She said the mattress had a large bloodstain on the top and bottom, as well as a bullet hole in it.
On October 1, a Department of Transportation worker in Eagle Township, Ohio, found Carter’s lower body and legs in a sleeping bag in the weeds next to a highway. Carter’s head was found nine days later in a black duffel bag with a bullet hole under his ear, and his torso and hands were found in a suitcase on October 16.
Who Killed David Carter?
In the Unsolved Mysteries episode Body in Bags, the main question is whether or not Carter’s girlfriend Tammy killed him.
The US Department of Justice is looking for Williams in connection with Carter’s death. Fox2 says she is wanted for “mutilation, dismemberment of a corpse, tampering with evidence and weapons crimes”.
The US Marshals are reportedly offering a $10,000 reward for information about Williams. In September 2021, police said they believe William’s family may have helped her evade the law.
Andrew Battersby of the US Marshals Task Force in Detroit said in the documentary: “Someone is helping her, both financially and by giving her a roof and a place to live. She didn’t just disappear.”
“The weapon used was not found,” he said, adding that Williams was “a dangerous woman.”
He believes that could make her “armed and dangerous.”
Williams, who formerly worked as a travel agent and at a hospital, was arrested on October 5, 2018 after Carter’s body was found. She was later released because there was insufficient evidence to keep her in prison.
ClickOnDetroit says she left Detroit in mid-October and then police began looking for her.
In September 2021, US Deputy Marshal Aaron Garcia told Fox2: “We will find you.” People know where she is and how to reach her, but they haven’t told us yet.”
Problems begin for Samia Conner and David Carter
No matter how they felt about each other, they were both eager to co-parent-raise DJ and stayed close. After that, David had a few relationships and has been dating Tamera “Tammy” Williams since March 2018. Six months later he disappeared without a trace while he was with her. After that, David didn’t go to work for a few days, so his family went to look for him. Samia pulled the covers out of the bedroom to show that the front door was unlocked. As soon as David’s family realized something was wrong, they informed the police. In the weeks that followed, police found parts of David’s body along a freeway in Eagle Township, Ohio.
