Marine Charged In 2007 Slaying Of Wendy's Worker 8-09-2010

By FOX Carolina Staff
GREENVILLE, S.C.Greenville police said Monday that they arrested a second man in connection with the slaying of a Wendy's worker nearly four years ago.
On Jan. 27, 2007, 22-year-old Isaac Bass was found shot to death outside the Wendy's restaurant on North Pleasantburg Drive. Police have said that they believe Bass was killed when he left work the night before.
In March, investigators arrested 21-year-old Korey Love in connection with the case. Love was charged with murder, attempted armed robbery, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and possession of a pistol by a person unlawful.
Investigators said that the arrest came after receiving tips that came in during news coverage of the third anniversary of Bass' death in January.
After Love's arrest, police said they were able to identify a second suspect in Bass' death as 20-year-old Eric Ransom, a Marine stationed in Okinawa, Japan.
Investigators said they obtained warrants for Ransom's arrest on July 12, and worked with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to return Ransom to Greenville.
Ransom has been charged with attempted armed robbery and murder. He was being held at the Greenville County Detention Center.
