— The Harnett County Sheriff's Office has announced two arrests linked to the December 2019 disappearance of Terrance Rashawn Ford.

Over the course of their search for Ford, 31, deputies identified Derrick Wesley Brooks, 37, and Daniel Marquioues McKoy, 45, both of Cameron, as suspects.

On May 15, operating on a tip, deputies searched a property on T.W. Campbell Lane in Lillington, and there they found a body in a shallow grave.

While authorities did not definitively identify the body as Ford's, they did charge Brooks with murder and concealing a body or failure to report a death.

On May 20, McKoy was charged as a co-conspirator in reference to the death investigation. He was charged with burning personal property, concealing/failing to report a death and felony conspiracy.

Brooks, who was already on the Harnett County jail on a drug charge, will be held without bond on the murder charge. McKoy was being held on a $760,000 secured bond.
