It was just last May when LaShawnna Threatt fell through the window of the 10th floor of the W Hotel. Read here about her death. She was celebrating life with her fiance Ray Hamilton and close friends. Ray Hamilton, her fiance, was distraught over her death. It was once said that he was going to obtain guardianship of LaShawnna’s daughter.
To express his feelings he said,
…“Thank God it wasn’t daytime; I would have jumped out, no question,” Ray Hamilton told the AJC. “I couldn’t see anything out that window, though, it was pitch black.”
“Everybody had just walked in and kicked off their shoes,” he said.
“There was no unruly activity, there was no one drunk, there was no party in the room,” he said.
Hamilton and another friend were standing next to Threatt and Williams, who were near the window, horseplaying, tickling each other and hugging, Hamilton said.
“LaShawna, she’s just a very affectionate person,” Hamiltion said.
Williams’ back was to the window, and Threatt was standing in front of her, Hamilton said.
“They leaned back a little bit, and they just went out,” he said.
