For weeks William Apps talked to his alleged killers setting up truck deal

Investigators in Beaufort County are offering more details on their role in the murder case of William Alex Apps.

 Beaufort is where Apps was first reported missing and where it's alleged his stolen debit card was used by Jquan Scott.

Local Investigators say Scott's story has changed a few times but report the suspects were back and forth last Thursday.

The suspect told Deputies they started on Savannah Highway then they stopped on Spring Street to meet William Apps and his mother who were selling their truck. The Silverado was posted in an ad on Craigslist.

The truck was then driven to Mathis Ferry Road where court papers say Apps was held at gunpoint-- then Deputies say it was back to Charleston. It was then around 4:30 in Thursday afternoon investigators say William Apps was shot while they crossed the bridge back to Mount Pleasant, as he sat in the passenger seat of the truck he was hoping to sell.

 The story Wednesday from Beaufort County offered a little more information. Sheriff P.J. Tanner said Apps' mother at first was not that concerned about William because of previous contact with Jquan Scott and Isaac Williams.

"She knew that her son had spoken to the person who had the interest in the truck and this had been going on for a couple weeks so she knew there was a lot of interest."

Tanner also said Scott, who now was driving the Chevy Silverado, told Deputies that Apps didn't have the title of the truck when it was sold on Thursday.

Scott told investigators, Apps offered up his own debit card to Scott to hold until the deal was final, Scott then said he dropped William Apps off on Mathis Ferry Road.

Investigators also said there were several purchases on Apps' card from the Beaufort area by Scott. Tanner told reporters on Wednesday that is when they realized they needed to dig a little deeper.

"Things did start adding up two and two didn't make four-- Some of the stories had changed some of the other concerns were there we collected the debit card on a Sunday, because Scott was claiming he bought the truck."

Beaufort officials also say the Jquan Scott used App's debit card in at least 6 purchases that included fast food and shoes. Deputies say Scott's friends in Beaufort County who attend the University of South Carolina in Bluffton witnessed Scott make the purchases while visiting last weekend.
