TIMMONSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – Three additional suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Timmonsville teen who had been missing since September.
According to a press release from the Florence County Sheriff's Office, Ronnie Jackson Jr., 23; Antonio McAllister, 25; and Kevin Rogers, 21, were each charged with attempted murder, kidnapping and accessory before the fact of a felony.
All three suspects are from Timmonsville and were taken into custody on Tuesday.
Last week, Briheem Williams, 20, was arrested and charged with the murder of 18-year-old Bobby Junior Evans.
Evans' family had reported him missing on Oct. 3, and he had last been seen on or about Sept. 15, according to an earlier news release from FCSO.
The victim's remains were discovered on Oct. 10 near Victor White Road in Timmonsville.
Further investigation by the FCSO revealed that the three suspects arrested Tuesday allegedly conspired with and encouraged Williams to kill Evans.
The release stated that investigators allege Williams did murder the teen and afterwards was held against his will by the other suspects, who attempted to kill him.
Bond for all of these suspects and Williams has been denied.
According to the release, FCSO investigators have outstanding warrants for a fifth suspect, Edwin Evander Small, 29, of Florence.
Small is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 141 pounds. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to call the FCSO at (843) 665-2121, ext. 372.
