Beaufort Academy Grad Murdered Outside Charleston

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. -

What started as a Beaufort County missing person's case became a Charleston murder investigation.

The body of 25-year-old William Apps of St. Helena was discovered in Charleston yesterday-- two days after his mother reported him missing.

Tonight two men are behind bars charged with kidnapping and murder.

19-year-old Jquan Scott and 20 year-old Isaac Williams.

Authorities say Apps was trying to sell his truck via Craigslist to Scott--the men met up in Charleston where the deal went sour.

Police say, Scott led them to App's body and confessed to shooting him.

But a twist brought this case back to Beaufort--- authorities discovered that Scott was using the victim's debit card in Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton counties.

We spoke with sheriff PJ Tanner earlier today.

"We had to find out more about why is this card being used, and who's using it. could that help connect the dots with this missing person case. because at the time its still a missing person case, as we progressed through Sunday and had an opportunity to interview one of the suspects in this case, things started adding up that something was wrong."
