LAKE PARK – The village of Lake Park, home of Charles Williams’s business, HDI Investigations, couldn’t be further from the streets of New York City, where Williams once spent more than two decades as a special agent for the FBI.
When Williams moved to Indian Trail and began his business in the village of about 2,000 people after retiring from the bureau in 2006, it took him a while to make peace with the transition.
“I lived in NYC for 21 years and it was nothing but concrete and streetlights and skyscrapers, so you get used to that fast pace,” Williams said. “It took me a little while to adjust to the slower pace here, the smaller amount of people. After a while, I came to appreciate seeing the cows in the pastures.”
