    GA - William Whitsett, 21, found murdered, Savannah, 23 Dec 2014

    3rd person charged after NC man found buried at construction site


    Bates has a specialist rank, is a military policeman at Fort Stewart and was arrested last Monday, the Army Times reported. Kevin Da Palmer, age 23, and 20-year-old Genevieve Meeks, a graduate of a Savannah all-girls Catholic high school, were charged on Jan 17. by homicide detectives.
    "Wil grew up in the mountains above Marion, loving nature, people, and a challenge. He was an accomplished artist by the age of 15, carving beautiful sculptures out of wood that were exhibited throughout the area," his obituary said.

    Whitsett was found by AT&T workers as they were burying cable at the site near the intersection of Highway 204 and King George Boulevard in the Georgetown section of Savannah.

    It's unclear how Da Palmer and Meeks knew Whitsett.

    So strange. I wonder how the four of them knew each other...or if they even did know the victim. I don't know if comments were disabled under the article or not but I would love to hear some chatter on what people think might have happened.

    Comments on Facebook MSM articles are interesting, but not very illuminating so far:

    Three people were indicted Wednesday on murder and related charges in the death of a North Carolina man whose body was found near Georgetown in December. Army Spc. Bradley Bates, 22, along with Kevin Da Palmer, 23, and Genevieve Elizabeth Meeks, 20, both of Savannah, shot William Whitsett to death on or about Dec. 23, the Chatham County grand jury said in returning a malice murder charge...

    The grand jury also indicted the three for felony murder as parties to a crime that caused the death during commission of an aggravated assault on the victim, conspiracy to commit murder by obtaining a .22-caliber pistol, luring the victim to Bates’ apartment and shooting him.

    I wonder, was William Whitsett reported missing for any length of time? Or was he found that quickly after they murdered him? What was the motive here? Or were the killers on drugs/drunk and just made a huge mistake in shooting him?
    The whole story sounds so bizarre!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
