GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) – While visiting her mother at the hospital, it was one phone call that Chandra Willis-Kasa said changed everything for her family.

“She just held her hands up in the air, pointing toward God saying thank you,” Willis-Kasa said of her mother.

Willis-Kasa told 7 News Wednesday that on the phone was the lead investigator on her parents case, informing them that the final arrests had been made.

“This is definitely almost a Christmas present to know these men are behind bars. Never a Christmas present that I would have asked for before September 25th.”

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday that two more men had been arrested in connection with the W.E. Willis robbery, kidnapping, and shooting case from September.

Greenville County deputies say 19-year-old Jack Corris Foreman IV and 22-year-old Da’Juan Rayshard Young were arrested Tuesday afternoon in Florida.

Both are charged with attempted murder, two counts of kidnapping, third-degree arson, first-degree assault and battery, first-degree burglary, two counts of armed robbery, grand larceny, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

“It almost feels like we’ve turned a switch or turned a curb and we’re able to get back and focus on living our life,” said Willis-Kasa. “I knew eventually that they would have all of these guys behind bars but we just didn’t know how long it would take.”

The two men were arrested by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and are awaiting extradition to Greenville County.

Sheriff Johnny Mack Brown released a statement regarding the arrests:

“On behalf of the Sheriff’s Office, I am delighted to bring closure to the Willis family in knowing that the individuals responsible for this heinous crime are off the streets and preparing to face the consequences for their evil acts. I am extremely proud of our team of investigators and all of the assisting agencies that helped make this a successful investigation. I trust that our solicitor and the justice system will do their due diligence in prosecuting these individuals to the fullest extent of the law.”

On September 25, masked men ambushed Warren Willis as he left the W.E. Willis Grocery store on Highway 414.

Deputies say Willis was bound with zip ties, kidnapped and taken to his home on Sweetgum Road.

The men traveled to the store in a stolen truck, according to deputies.

The suspects parked the stolen truck on Howard Drive and walked half a mile to the business and waited for Warren Willis to exit the store.

When Willis walked out, the suspects brutally attacked him – binding him with zip ties and loading him into the backseat of Willis’ car, according to the sheriff.

Mr. Willis was taken to his home where deputies say the suspects also bound Mr. Willis’ wife.

The suspects beat the couple for 30 to 40 minutes.

Mrs. Willis was shot and stabbed following the torture, deputies say. 

The suspects left in Willis’ vehicle after ransacking the couple’s home and stealing cash.
