Who was William “Bill” Wedell?
William “Bill” Wedell is the actor who was found dead with his mom’s body, Agnes Wedell in Chelsea on Saturday, Jan 30th, 2021. William had lived with her decomposing corpse for several days before he also passed away — and that he used Febreze to mask the odor, law-enforcement sources said Sunday.
William “Bill” Wedell was an Actor
William, according to family members, was an actor and had a small role in Woody Allen’s 1989 film ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors’ and ‘It Could Happen to You’ that starred Nicholas Cage. William had moved to the Big Apple in the 1980s where he had worked as a waiter, revealed Juliana.
She also said that after Willliam moved from Chicago to Manhattan in order to start his career in acting, his mother had followed him there. Agnes had moved from Illinois to live with William, 12 years prior. They had been living in that apartment in which they were found for decades.
William, who is called Bill by his family, was proud to get his card as a member of the Screen Actors Guild, “it was his dream”, said his sister. Describing her brother as “quite the character,” she added, “A lot of people go to New York to be actors, and it doesn’t work out for everyone. But to read about his acting accomplishments in the paper, he would like that. It will make him smile up in heaven.”
William “Bill” Wedell and his mother were found in NYC Apartment
The bodies of a 95-year-old woman and her 64-year-old son were found in NYC. The mother and son were found in their apartment and were discovered when a family member alerted the cops after she was unable to get in touch with them. According to Daily Mail, it is “believed” that the mother had died before her son who had been dead for 48 hours (two days). On Sunday, January 31, the mother and son were identified as William Wedell and Agnes Wedell.
Bottles of Febreze were found throughout the apartment, sources said. Agnes had recently been ailing, and police believe she died of natural causes, sources said. Cops also do not suspect foul play in the death of her son — whose body was found naked on a bed, with scores of empty Tylenol bottles also discovered in the home, sources said.
Cops had previously responded to the home several times regarding calls about Bill’s drinking, sources said.
