A third suspect wanted in Monday night murder

The Fauquier sheriff’s office released photos of murder suspect Myiason Ellis.
Fauquier sheriff’s investigators have warrants for the arrest of a third suspect in Monday night’s murder of an 18-year-old Warrenton man.

“Detectives have charged Myison Iaeene Ellis, 38, of Waynesboro, with first-degree murder, use of a firearm in commission of a felony and conspiracy to commit robbery,” Sgt. James Hartman said in a press release just after 5 p.m. Friday.
“Ellis is considered armed and dangerous, anyone with information regarding Ellis’ whereabouts is urged to contact 9-1-1 and report his location immediately or the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office at 540-347-3300,” Sgt. Hartman said.
“Fauquier detectives are working closely with Waynesboro and Augusta County law enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service to locate and apprehend Myison Ellis,” he added.

In a Facebook video Friday, Sheriff Bob Mosier said authorities have tracked Mr. Ellis’ movements to Prince William and Nelson counties and Charlottesville.

Detectives already have charged a Nokesville man with the first-degree murder of Lincoln Williams Jr. and a Manassas woman with conspiracy to commit robbery in relation to the killing.

But, arrested Wednesday, Daniel Martin Farmer II, 23, faces no firearms charge in the killing.

Mr. Williams’ father told investigators that his son named “Rudeboy” as the person who shot him in the face outside the family home east of Warrenton, according to arrest documents. Lincoln Williams Sr. identified Mr. Farmer as “Rudeboy.”

In the most recent development, detectives have charged Mr. Ellis with using a firearm to commit murder, suggesting they believe he pulled the trigger.

Sgt. Hartman said Friday night he could not comment on that possibility.

“We hope he’s apprehended quickly, without incident,” Sgt. Hartman said. “Then, we’ll be able to provide more information.”

Mr. Farmer told detectives he had arranged to meet and buy drugs from Mr. Williams but that the meeting never took place, according to the arrest warrant.

Store video shows Mr. Williams leaving the Warrenton Walmart at about 10:24 p.m. Monday, according to court documents.

Bleeding profusely, he walked into his family’s home at 5042 Old Auburn Road, about five miles east of town, soon thereafter.

Responding to a 9-1-1 call from the home at 10:42 p.m., sheriff’s deputies and medics tried to save the teenager.

Mr. Williams died less than an hour later at Fauquier Hospital.

On Thursday, detectives charged 54-year-old Lucretia Ann Robinson with conspiracy to commit robbery in the case.

Silli I lived 40 years so far and never thought to blame "big pharma" for any of my problems. I agree we have an opioid problem but it's not big pharma, its the doctors percribing this poison.

Fauquier County has a huge drug problem - big pharma has seen to that. So many teenagers are mixed up with drugs, going to pill parties, using, dealing, getting addicted, committing all sorts of crimes to keep their habit going. They don't realize if they owe money to a dealer and don't pay, they're going to get murdered or sold bad stuff that will kill as soon as it's ingested. Read DOPESICK - all about how the opiod crisis got going in Virginia and spread to the entire state.

That kid was messing with some bad company.

Absolutely not worth putting yourself in harms way for money and drugs.
