Convicted Murderer and Underbelly Gangland Boss Carl Williams dies after Jail Bashing Attack
Notorious gangland figure Carl Williams has died after being bashed at Barwon Prison according to reports. Paramedics arrived at the jail at about 1.20 Monday afternoon to find Williams with serious head injuries. He is then reported to have suffered a cardiac arrest and died.
Williams was the subject of an exclusive Herald Sun story on Monday which revealed his daughter's private school fees were paid for by the government.
Police are reportedly at the scene and are investigating. Two people are currently being interviewed by police in relation to the bashing death.
It is believed that Williams was in the exercise yard at the time of the attack. Williams was usually separated from other prisoners but did have a brief time each day for exercise. It has been suggested that usual practice was for Williams to be supervised.
It is yet to be determined if there was an underworld motive for the attack on Williams.
