Funeral plans have been made for a young SC man who was killed during a fake plan by two men who pretended to want to buy his pick-up truck.

A Facebook page has been set up pledging to pursue justice for an SC man who police say was shot in the head while on a test drive in his pickup truck with two men posing as prospective Craigslist buyers.

The page, called Justice for Alex, hopes to bring national attention to the case about William Alexander Apps, age 25, who went missing a week ago and was found dead Monday in Charleston.

In just over 1 day, the page has over 30,000 likes and went from 5,000 to the current number just overnight Wednesday.

"Anything less than the death penalty is no justice at all!" is listed as a description of the page.

Two men have been charged in the murder and kidnapping, which happened after the pair met Apps last Thursday under the ruse of purchasing his Chevrolet truck that was advertised on Craigslist for $18,000 police say.

And, now, new details are being released about what the "trigger man" suspect did in the case: after shooting Apps in the head, he used his debit card to buy a nice pair of sneakers and Taco Bell and Wendy's meals – and even rode around in Apps' pickup truck with his girlfriend to a party near Beaufort, police say.

Jquan Scott and Isaac Williams, age 20, are facing charges of murder and kidnapping. Scott is facing additional charges of armed robbery and possession of a deadly weapon during a violent crime.

Police have told the Beaufort newspaper that Scott, age 19, took Apps' truck on a joyride down to Beaufort, where they were both from.

During that trip, police say Scott stopped at a Tanger Outlet Mall to buy some items, including tennis shoes using Apps' credit card. Beaufort officials also say the Scott used App's debit card in at least 6 purchases.

10:00 am, Saturday, October 19, 2013 at Saint Gregory the Great Catholic Church, 333 Fording Island Road, Bluffton, SC with burial in the New Hope Cemetery, Lexsey, GA. Friends may greet the family immediately following the services at Saint Gregory the Great prior to leaving for the burial.
