The homeless man accused of fatally stabbing Ryan Rogers, 14, in Florida had disturbing YouTube

The bizarre and unsettling YouTube channel of the ‘homeless drifter’ who allegedly stabbed a 14-year-old boy to death in Palm Beach Gardens last month has come to light, and shows the suspect’s paranoia and severe mental health problems.

Semmie Williams, 39, is accused of fatally stabbing Ryan Rogers when the two crossed paths on November 15.

Around 7:30 pm that evening, surveillance video captured footage of a man believed to be Williams walking towards the I-95 overpass on Central Boulevard, where Ryan’s body was later found.

On Thursday morning, police announced charges against Williams after they revealed law enforcement in Miami took him into custody in connection to Ryan’s death. 

On Williams’ YouTube channel, which bears his name and image, he raves about being stalked, abused and harassed by members of the public as well as police, while oftentimes accusing passerbys in his clips of being racists, cult members or undercover police, according to Fox News.

Authorities involved in the case refused to answer any questions regarding the authenticity of the YouTube videos.  

The videos have been both narrated and captioned but are completely unrelated to the footage itself, with many being titled ‘gang stalking,’ and others alleging ‘child endangerment,’ racism and ‘possible criminal activity.’ 

One video which was posted on the night of the murder shows a dark street after sundown, likely just before the deadly 7:30 pm encounter, and is titled ‘First Blood 1982.’

The narrator in that video speaks about mysterious women following him and police and security guards ‘being violent’ with him.  

‘You know, prostitutes that set guys up to get killed,’ he says. 

‘Like I don’t know these women.’

On November 16, the day after Williams is accused of fatally stabbing Ryan to death, a video posted to Williams’ YouTube channel declares ‘my next movie is gonna be “Blade 3:16″‘ and showed landmarks in Palm Beach Gardens, roughly 80 miles from where he was later arrested in Miami.  

In other videos, Williams alleges police and civilians have repeatedly kidnapped him while adding the assailants were ‘mutilating’ his face and ‘implanting evidence’ on him. 

In another, Williams confronts a stranger and asks him if he is stalking him, to which the man answers no.

Most of his YouTube content is just nonsense, however, including passing cars, sidewalks and grass.    

Palm Beach Gardens Police Chief Clinton Shannon called the fatal stabbing ‘a random act’ and could not immediately provide a motive.

The young teen left home on his bicycle around 6:40 pm November 15, but when he failed to return home by 10:30 pm, his parents alerted authorities and reported him missing.  

Shortly after Ryan left his house, he and Williams crossed paths before the teen was stabbed ‘numerous times in the head and face,’ the criminal complaint states.

Headphones found at the scene contained Williams’ DNA, and he was allegedly in possession of a blood soaked bandana that tested positive for Ryan’s DNA when he was arrested him in Miami. 

Williams has denied any role in Ryan’s death. 

Williams is currently being held without bail on a charge of first-degree murder.
