Three people have been charged with kidnapping a Charleston man who was found dead near railroad tracks several days before Christmas.

Authorities are looking for a fourth suspect.

Marquis Rashad Richardson, 25, was abducted from a house in Charleston Dec. 19 and found shot to death the next day in Lincolnville, according to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.

A woman and two men who already were in the Charleston County Detention Center were charged with kidnapping Sunday. They are Latasha Yvette McCall, 23, of Romney Street in Charleston; King Dominque Wilson, 22, of Ranger Drive in North Charleston; and Travaris D. Walker, 29, of Bull Street in Charleston, sheriff's Maj. Jim Brady said.

The three were denied bail on the kidnapping charges Sunday.

Deputies are searching for a fourth suspect: Fredrick Andre Sanders, 29, whose last-known address was Flood Street in Charleston.

Walker was the gunman who forced Richardson from a house at 69 Norman St. into a car about 5 p.m. Dec. 19, while the other three were with Walker, according to affidavits. Richardson was living in the Gadsden Green housing complex near President Street and Hagood Avenue at the time, according to the affidavits.

Richardson's body was found beside railroad tracks that run along Lincolnville Road about 7:30 a.m. Dec. 20. He died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the coroner's office.

No murder charges have been filed, as detectives continue to investigate a motive and determine what, if any, part the suspects might have played in Richardson's death, Brady said.

Anyone with information on Sanders' whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff's office at 202-1700 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
