Deputies Investigate Death, Missing Person
Bishopville, SC (WLTX) - Lee County deputies have made six arrests in connection with the death of a Bishopville man. At the same time of that investigation, deputies are also looking for 17-year-old Shakez Bracey who went missing Friday. "Everyone is looking for answers and I pray that they get the answers they need," said Dontrell Fortune's sister Santia. Fortune was found shot and killed off of Azelia Street in Bishopville on Saturday. "He didn't deserve that and he was a good person, he was respectable and never asked for anything so I want his death to be solved," said Santia. Davon Tyrell McFadden, 18; Kevin Oneal White, 18; Sunallah Sadat Liles, 17; and Sarah Wright Goodman, 48 were arrested Sunday in connection with his death. Gewanna Laretta Burton, 19, and Kalvon Goodman were arrested Monday night in connection with the death of Fortune. Lee County Sheriff Daniel Simon says in the midst of this investigation they are also looking for 17-year-old Shakez Bracey. His department is trying to determine if the two cases are connected. "The family is concerned, I am concerned and all of Lee County is concerned. The county is close knit so we are trying to find this young man," said Simon. Mae Boyd is Shakez Bracey's grandmother. She says he is a senior at Lee Central High School and admits that he hung out with the wrong crowd. She says Shakez was friends will some of the people who were arrested. "I'm hoping they will find him. If they find him just bring him out dead or alive. We just want justice," said Boyd. Simon says Bishopville is a small town and some of the victims may have gone to school with some of the suspects. Shakez's aunt Debbie Williams says she is just clinging to her faith in God that he will be brought home safe. "When you hope, you believe something is going to happen. When you have faith you are wanting something to happen so I have both when it comes to this and I trust in the Lord and ask him to send him back safe and sound and in one piece," said Williams.
