It had been two days since Courtney Williams’s roommate had contact with him before he reported him missing. The last time anyone saw the 27-year-old was on February 15, 1996, while Courtney was with his girlfriend, 24-year-old Tomeka Jefferson. The couple was at Courtney’s apartment in Ellicott City, Maryland when Tomeka reportedly spoke with her relatives in the evening. It was around 10:00 p.m. when she told them she and Courtney planned to go out, but what happened to the couple remains a mystery.
On February 19, relatives of Tomeka Jefferson reported her as a missing person. It’s unclear where the couple was headed to on their night out, but they were never seen alive again. Tomeka was a responsible woman so when she didn’t show up for work at a Baltimore law firm where she was employed as a legal clerk, people grew even more concerned. Then, on February 21, the investigation into the missing couple gained steam after Tomeka’s car was located behind an apartment building in a Baltimore neighborhood known for its criminal activity. It’s unknown what evidence, if any, was found inside of the 1995 Nissan Quest, but the vehicle had been abandoned in an area known for drug activity.
Reports state that Courtney Williams was a drug dealer who allegedly made upwards of $30,000 per week and had a criminal record. Courtney’s drug-running included work with Thomas “Archie” Smith, a man who reportedly answered to Williams as his lieutenant. On April 7, the body of Courtney Williams was located floating face-up in Gwynns Falls. He had been shot multiple times.
Tomeka Jefferson remains missing.
This is where the story takes a bit of a turn. A month after Courtney’s remains were located, Baltimore police officer Andre Johnson was investigated after arrest documents were found inside of the dead man’s vehicle. When authorities looked into the paperwork, they found that the arrest records were forged and were for Thomas “Archie” Smith, who they later learned was a childhood friend of the patrolman. The investigation uncovered this story: Smith reportedly told Courtney that his drugs were seized by the police during an arrest. However, that doesn’t seem to be the truth and Smith needed paperwork as proof of his story. Johnson accepted $200 from Smith to create the forged documents and later admitted that he worked as an “enforcer” for Smith.
Johnson was charged with bribery, malfeasance, and filing a false public document. He resigned from the police department and was arrested. Later, Johnson would tell authorities that he overheard Smith and Courtney’s brother, Christopher Black, discussing the murder of Williams. The former officer said that he didn’t intervene or attempt to stop the crime from happening, nor did he share information with authorities when, Johnson said, he was paged as soon as Williams was killed. Smith and Black were reportedly jealous that Williams was making so much money as a drug dealer.
There have been dozens of bodies found near Gwynns Falls in Baltimore’s Leakin Park over the years. Despite Johnson’s statements, no one has been arrested in connection to Courtney’s murder. Tomeka Jefferson remains a missing person and the status of her case isn’t known.
At the time of her disappearance, Tomeka Jefferson stood 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 135 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Distinguishing marks or what she was last seen wearing is unknown. Some agencies report that her DNA, fingerprints, and dental records aren’t on file. Tomeka’s middle name is Jill. She would be 48-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Baltimore County Police Department at (410) 887-2214 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Tomeka Jefferson to help reignite the investigation into her disappearance. She is our sister and her life matters.

However, Beatrice would always eventually contact someone to let them know that she was safe, and each month, she was known to visit her sister’s home. Beatrice’s welfare checks were sent there monthly, so she would make sure to stop by and pick up her mail. (more…)
