Investigators with the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Department say Eric Williams of Lone Rock, Wisconsin was able to escape and call 9-1-1 but he wasn’t able to return inside of the house to save his sister, 49-year-old Dawn Williams of Ripon, Wisconsin or the owner of the house, 53-year-old Matthew Jones.
