Sister of ex-John Doe seeks to undo his guardianship, claims he was kidnapped

October 21, 2012

The sister of a man known as John D108 Doe for more than four years filed paperwork in Wayne County Probate Court seeking to terminate or modify his guardianship, claiming her brother had been kidnapped.

Maurice Williams — who was identified Monday after the Free Press ran a story on him — has not yet been reunited with any family members. But his sister Janine Williams filed a petition Wednesday to change guardianship.

“My brother was kidnapped,” she said in the filing. “My family has been searching four years for my brother.”

His court-appointed guardian said Thursday the allegation is unfounded and untrue. Williams, 46, who is severely developmentally disabled, has been living in a group home in Detroit since 2008.
“We don’t solicit clients,” said Kathleen White-Montgomery, his legal guardian and owner of Guardianship Service. “They come through a bigger agency that needs help with a client.”

Man has lived as John Doe for years, but now his guardian wants mystery solved

October 20, 2012


His real name isn’t known. For years now, he simply has been identified as John D108 Doe.

Those caring for him don’t know his age. Or whether he has family. They don’t know whether he was abandoned or whether anyone is searching for him. It’s not even clear when he went from a man with an identity to someone who no one knows.

Court records show it has been at least four years since the man was found wandering the streets and knocking on doors. But stories passed down to those caring for him indicate it may be closer to eight years ago when he was first found on Detroit’s east side.

Police ran his fingerprints and didn’t get any hits.

He can’t speak beyond a few words. He has been diagnosed with severe mental illness and has lived in a group home in Detroit since 2008. Now, his new guardian and her daughter want the mystery of John D108 Doe solved.
