Jquan Scott, Isaac Williams arrested for murder of William Alexander Apps
Charleston County deputies are reporting that two two suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of a South Carolina man after a Craigslist meetup.
Jquan Scott, age 19, and Isaac Williams, age 20, have been arrested for the kidnapping and murder of 25-year-old William Alexander Apps. Bond was denied for both men as of Tuesday night.
Apps was found dead near a power substation the Charleston County Coroner’s Office stated, several days after he was reported as missing.
According to the coroner’s office, Apps died from a gunshot wound to the head.
At a press conference, Sheriff Al Cannon said Apps was trying to sell his 2006 Chevrolet truck on Craigslist, and the suspects responded to his ad on Thursday.
He met the two men at a Hardees on Spring Street in downtown Charleston.
“The victim’s mother was also present in a separate vehicle,” Cannon said.”The victim advised her to go on and that the sale was not going to occur at that time. That he was going to take the two individuals back to their home.”
According to Cannon, shortly after the victim and the suspects left Hardees, they went over the Ravenel Bridge where Apps was shot and killed.
Cannon said he believes that Apps was shot in the front passenger seat based on evidence collected.
Cannon said the suspects then dragged Apps’ body in a wooded area. Scott then drove Apps’ truck to a party with friends after the shooting, deputies say.
After he was caught, Cannon said Scott led authorities to Apps’ body Monday night.
