Fifth held in Pace slaying | pnj.com | Pensacola News Journal
A U.S. Marshals task force arrested a fifth person on Saturday in connection with the slaying of William Warrick Jr., 18, at a mobile home park in Pace last week.
Regis Reymon Madison, 41, was arrested without incident Saturday afternoon at an apartment complex in Lafayette, La., and is being held at the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center while awaiting extradition to Santa Rosa County, according to a U.S. Marshals news release.
Warrick died Tuesday night after being shot several times at the Jernigan Mobile Home Park in the 4200 block of Alderwood Drive, according to a Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office arrest report. Warrick was killed after a man came to the mobile home where was staying and asked about marijuana, the report said.
Law enforcement officials in Lafayette also impounded a vehicle believed to be the one the suspects were driving the night of the murder. A Milton woman who was with Madison was questioned by investigators but was not arrested, according to the release.
This latest arrest brings to five the number of people charged in connection with the murder.
Earlier this week, Justin McQueen, 19; Dominique Hill, 20; Jarryd Butler, 20; and Marguerite Hill, 21, all of Milton, were arrested last week in connection with the case.
Those four have been charged with murder and were being held at Santa Rosa County Jail without bond Saturday afternoon.
Marguerite Hill and Butler also were charged with robbery in connection with the case.
Investigators said Madison is the last known suspect wanted in connection with the murder.
Dennis Williamson, U.S. marshal for the Northern District of Florida, said the arrest was made thanks to a coordinated effort by nine law enforcement agencies.
"This was an intense investigation that logged a lot of man hours and sacrifices on the part of all those involved. But it is that type of cooperation that eventually leads to capturing these dangerous fugitives," Williamson said.
Santa Rosa deputies made two new arrests Friday night in connection with the fatal shooting of William Warrick Jr., 18, at a mobile home park in Pace.
Friday afternoon, Jarryd Butler, 20, and Marguerite Hill, 21, both of Milton, were arrested on charges of murder and robbery, Sheriff's officials said. Both will have their first appearance in court today.
Warrick died after being shot several times at the Jernigan Mobile Home Park in the 4200 block of Alderwood Drive Tuesday night.
The latest arrests bring to four the number of people charged in connection with the murder. Justin McQueen, 19, and Dominique Hill, 20, also of Milton, were charged Wednesday with homicide.
Both men remained in custody at Santa Rosa County Jail without bond Friday night.
A man was shot to death Tuesday night at a mobile home park in Pace.
The death is the first homicide in Santa Rosa County this year. There were no homicides in the county in 2009.
The man, whose name was not released, was fatally shot in a mobile home about 9:30 p.m. at Jernigan Mobile Home Park on Bay Cedar Lane off Jernigan Road.
A second man was in the mobile home but was able to get out without being injured, Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Scott Haines said.
Deputies went to the mobile home park after the Sheriff’s Office received 911 calls reporting gunfire at the mobile home park, Haines said.
“One of them said that someone was down in the house,” Haines said.
Details about the shooting were not immediately available, Haines said.
Deputies were looking late Tuesday night for three suspects — one armed with a shotgun and the other with a 9mm handgun — in connection with the homicide, Haines said.
Sheriff’s Office dogs were helping with the search.
It was initially thought the suspects remained at the scene after the shooting, and a SWAT team was called to the mobile home park. Deputies searched the area but the shooters had left, Haines said.
The shooting Tuesday night marks the second homicide at Jernigan Mobile Home Park since 2007.
Juan Antonio Enrique Rodriguez, 43, was found dead in a trash bin at the mobile home park Dec. 9, 2007.
Rodriguez died of ligature strangulation, the Sheriff’s Office said.
“It’s still an unsolved homicide,” Haines said.
