Nachon Hayden, 22, was was arrested and taken into custody at a home on Mountain Ridge Court Monday morning, April 11. 

Chris Dawan Glass, Jr., 22, of Fort Mill and Tony Eugene Maynard, 21, of Indian Land were arrested Friday morning at the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office. 

Warrants charging each of them with Murder were served upon them later in the day at the Lancaster County Detention Center.  

The fourth suspect David Antonio Kucinski, 21, waived extradition and was transferred to the Lancaster County Detention Center Friday night. 

Kucinski was taken into custody around 6 p.m. Thursday, April 7. Deputies said they learned Kucinski was at a motel in Charlotte. 

The location was passed along to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department Violent Crime Apprehension Team (VCAT), and within minutes Kucinski was arrested without incident. 

As we've reported, deputies were called to the 200 block of Little River Road around 7:00 p.m. Tuesday. 

Witnesses told deputies they remembered seeing Kucinski outside an orange car in the roadway at the top of their driveway moving an apparently unconscious man from the trunk of the car. 

Deputies were informed the victim, Randy Tran, 20, appeared to have blood on his face and head, and Kucinski appeared to have blood on his clothes and arms. 

The witness told deputes they called 911 and walked to the roadway, but Kucinski and the car were gone.

Authorities found Tran's body a few yards off the roadway.

On Thursday, deputies found Randy Tran’s orange Toyota Scion abandoned in the Charlotte area. It was towed to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and is being processed by crime scene investigators. 

“With the arrest of Hayden Monday morning, we believe we now have in custody all those directly involved in the death of Mr. Tran,” said Sheriff Barry Faile. “We do anticipate that additional charges will be made on these four men relating to the incident, and we still have several folks to locate and interview as this investigation continues.”
