Online records show Cayce Williams has moved from Crystal Lake to Chicago's Englewood neighborhood.

Relatives said the 47-year-old moved because his family was being harassed, The Northwest Herald reported.

Williams is forced to register as a sex offender because he sexually assaulted 20-month-old Quortney Kley before killing her in Elgin in 1997.
