The progression in monitoring mobile mobile phone usage led Beaver County authorities to demand a 36-yr-outdated Aliquippa male in 2016 execution-type killing of a mate, the Beaver County District Attorney said Wednesday.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of Brandon Eugene Revis of Key Road, who was billed on Wednesday with legal homicide in the June 1, 2016, death of Sjavante Gilliam of Aliquippa.
Gilliam was uncovered on McMinn Avenue with a one gunshot to the again of the head, according to the felony complaint submitted versus Revis.
Revis remained on the lam Wednesday night and authorities are not selected if he is hiding amongst pals domestically or has fled the area, explained District Lawyer David J. Lozier. Police experienced searched his recognised hangouts and area of work early Wednesday early morning.
“We just barely skipped him,” Lozier explained.
Investigators experienced reopened the cold scenario and benefited from state-of-the-art pc software that was capable to do a far better position of monitoring cell telephone utilization and the site, based mostly on pings from a cell mobile phone tower, Lozier stated. Armed with that information, Lozier claimed they were ready to refute Revis’ claim that he was not with Gilliam at the time and spot of the slaying.
In the earlier week, a private source explained to law enforcement that Revis had admitted to taking pictures Gilliam, who was a Maritime Corps veteran.
Authorities believe that Gilliam may possibly have been shot simply because he and Revis were concerned in plotting lender robberies and a person informed Revis that Gilliam was performing with police. A further motive may perhaps have been a dispute over the proceeds of a drug offer wherever Revis believed that Gilliam had cheated him out of his share of the proceeds and he was shot, with Revis taking $1,500, Lozier reported.
Revis also was accused of theft of the $1,500 from Gilliam and unlawful possession of a firearm.
