Phillip Williams warned his daughter not to come back. He left Middletown years ago, he said, before the opioid epidemic that would eventually claim 24-year-old Destiny Williams' life began in earnest. Even then, he had more than enough reason to leave; by 2015, he had reason to warn her against returning to the place her addiction began.  "She came back here to get her kids back and get everything straightened out," he said, standing near the place her body was discovered Saturday afternoon. "She never made it. … I knew she would be right back on it. That's how it goes."
