UPDATE (11:35 p.m.): WTVD reports that Harnett County sheriff’s deputies have arrested two more people – a Sanford woman and a Lillington man – in connection with the murders.
Tracey Read, 33, of Sanford, and Jadin Baily, 20, of Lillington, have each been charged with two counts of first degree murder, along with Gregory Fargas.
All three suspects are in custody without bond at the Harnett County Jail.
ORIGINAL STORY: A 25-year-old Lillington man was arrested Friday and charged in the killing of a Sanford man and woman found shot to death in a car near a highway in the Buffalo Lakes area on Aug. 13.
Gregory Recardo Fargas was charged by the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office on two counts of first-degree murder Friday, Sheriff Wayne Coats said in a press release. Bryant James Rosser, 27, and Kelcie Lyn Vann, 24, were found dead in the front seat of Vann’s bullet-riddled car on a sandy path near Buffalo Lakes and Twin Pond roads south of Sanford.
The release stated the possibility of another arrest during the ongoing investigation.
Coats said arrest warrants were obtained by the department Friday morning, and Fargas was arrested at 1:45 p.m., pulled over in his vehicle by a deputy on Johnsonville School Road on the Harnett County side of Sanford. Fargas reportedly was armed with a handgun at the time of his arrest.
No information concerning a motive or why Fargas was a suspect has been released by the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office. According to his Facebook page, Fargas is a native of Utica, New York, and a graduate of Western Harnett High School.
At 5:18 p.m. on the day Rosser and Vann’s bodies were discovered, Fargas posted the following on Facebook: “PSA: I was not shot last night for some reason everyone thinks that. Shit I was on that couch cooling. Why everybody think I got shot lol”
In 2013, Fargas was one of two people injured in a shooting in Cameron while sitting in a car outside of a Bojangles restaurant. According to a July 30, 2013, report by WRAL, Fargas, then 20, and a woman were shot by a 20-year-old Sanford man and a 16-year-old accomplice and were treated at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Authorities at the time told WRAL Fargas was supposed to sell drugs to the men but changed his mind before they began shooting.
On his Facebook profile, Fargas uses the phrase “Cold Hearted” to describe himself. According to the profile, he was at some point a member of the United States Army.
His arrest comes 17 days after Vann’s gray 2001 Toyota Camry was discovered near the Lakes County convenience store by a passerby. A 911 caller reported a man and a woman in the vehicle with blood on its windshield and bullet holes all over the hood and doors.
Both Rosser and Vann were graduates of Lee County High School. Vann had recently completed dental assisting school and was a member of Flat Springs Baptist Church. Rosser was a former student at Central Carolina Community College, where he studied computer engineering. He left behind a young son and daughter.
