On August 16, sources with ABC reported in a top news report that the eight-year old never ages and is a case study for biological immortality. There are reportedly a handful of others who have this rarity to defy time.

Medical researcher, Richard F. Walker, who has been studying the aging process for many years told ABC about the eight-year-old that never ages as well as the others who are going through she Williams is.

"In some people, something happens to them and the development process is retarded. The rate of change in the body slows and is negligible. My whole career has been focused on the aging process. My fixation has been not on the consequences but the cause of it."

Williams weighs 11 pounds and will appear on TLC's special, "40-Year-Old Child: A New Case." The show will follow the story about the young girl after a media report broke the news a year ago.

There have been other cases of this aging in a baby's body or even a young person's body.

"A 29-year-old Florida man has the body of a 10-year-old, and a 31-year-old Brazilian woman is the size of a 2-year-old. Like Gabby, neither seems to grow older," ABC News wrote.
