LANCASTER COUNTY, S.C. — An 18-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the shooting death of Logan Allen Stacks, age 17, of Fort Lawn, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said Friday morning.

Akime Lee Truesdale, of Lancaster, was arrested on March 31 and charged with accessory after the fact of a felony of murder.

Earlier in the week, Arthur Jeremiah Fisher III, 19, of Lancaster, was placed into custody and charged with murder and grand larceny.

Deputies said they found Stack’s body around 8:30 a.m. Sunday on a gravel road, just off Potter Road, near Kirk Air Base.

About 30 minutes later, a car was reported in a ditch off of Kershaw-Camden Highway. Deputies said it was the victim’s car.

Fisher, Truesdale and Stacks were together Saturday night into Sunday morning, officials said.

They were traveling in a 2001 Saturn sedan owned by Stacks’ father.

At about sunrise, Fisher drove the Saturn with Stacks and Truesdale as passengers onto Kirk Air Base Road.

Fisher stopped the car and the three got out.

Fisher fired a handgun killing Stacks, whose body was left on the side of the road.

Authorities said Fisher drove the Saturn toward Kershaw until it had mechanical problems and that’s when he drove the car into a ditch off the southbound lane of Kershaw-Camden Highway, north of Landmark Pentecostal Holiness Church.

Truesdale removed the car key, investigators said Friday in a news release.

After that, Fisher and Truesdale fled on foot before they caught a ride back to Lancaster that afternoon.

Authorities found Fisher at his home Sunday afternoon and he was taken into custody. On Tuesday, investigators caught up with Truesdale at his home.
