    Sheriff: Arrest made in murder of a Williamsburg Co. postal worker


    By Live Web 5 News Staff

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Williamsburg County Sheriffs Office says an arrest has been made in connection with the murder of a Williamsburg County postal worker.

    Trevor Seward, 22, has been arrested on a state murder charge in connection to Irene Pressleys murder, according to the United States Postal Inspection Service.

    Seward was reportedly seen shortly before the incident holding what was believe to be an AR-15, according to the affidavit.

    Multiple .223 shell casings were found near the scene on Senate Road, according to the sheriffs office.

    A fingerprint was found on a United States Postal Service package that was recovered from the crime scene by the USPS forensics division that was later confirmed to be that of Seward.

    Pressley, 64, died Monday in the Morrisonville Road area after being shot while delivering the mail, deputies say. She worked with the U.S. Postal Service for almost 22 years.

    United States Postal Inspection Service spokesperson Jessica Adams said earlier this week that if the person responsible for Pressleys death is caught and convicted, they could face a federal death penalty.

    Since the shooting, residents of Williamsburg County placed white bows on their mailboxes in memory of Pressley.

    Pressley was laid to rest at 1 p.m. Saturday at St. John AME Church in Andrews.

    Man charged in shooting death of SC mail carrier denied bond

    By WBTW News

    ANDREWS, SC (WBTW) A man has been denied bond on murder charges in the shooting death of a mail carrier that shocked a community.

    Irene Pressley was shot and killed while on her mail route, a route she serviced for 22 years. Her death has attracted national attention and prompted heartfelt tributes from the community.

    Trevor Raekwon Seward, 22, of Andrews, was arrested on Saturday and charged with murder in connection to the shooting. Seward was denied bond on Sunday.

    Seward, if convicted, could face a federal death penalty. According to an arrest warrant obtained by News13, Seward shot Pressley multiple times at the corner of Senate and Morrisville Roads. He was seen beforehand carrying what looked to be an AR-15.

    Responders found multiple .223 shell casings on the scene afterward.

    Investigators were able to locate a fingerprint on a USPS parcel. It was taken from the crime scene by the Forensic Laboratory Services Division of the USPS. Investigators were able to confirm the fingerprint belonged to Seward.

    People who knew Irene Pressley describe her as a loving person who was always willing to lend a helping hand. White bows are attached to each mailbox along Irenes route to honor her.

    She always kept a smile on her face and always tried to help people out when she could, said Waynette Morris, who lives on Irenes route.

    Many of those who live on Irenes route say what happened to her has made them more aware. Work out here 22 years and then get killed doing her job, its sad, said Wilma Smith, who lives on the route. I dont know whats going on with people.

    Death penalty possible for men charged in killing of postal carrier in SC, feds say

    By Noah Feit and John Monk
    The State

    Two men are facing federal murder charges in connection with the killing of a U.S. postal carrier who was shot and killed last year while delivering mail on her rural South Carolina route in Williamsburg County. A third man is facing drug charges related to the postal carriers murder.

    The new charges were announced Wednesday by U.S. Attorney Peter McCoy, who said that Andrews residents Trevor Raekwon Seward, 22, and Jerome Terrell Davis, 28, were charged in a six-count federal indictment for their direct roles in the killing of Irene Pressley a 64-year-old mother and grandmother.

    If convicted, Seward and Davis could face the death penalty. Prosecutors said they have made no final decision on whether to seek the death penalty.

    Seward was the triggerman and used an assault-type rifle of the brand DoubleStar Corporation Model Star-15, 5.56 caliber, the indictment said.

    Ricky Jesus Barajas, 28, of Santa Rosa, California, was also charged by the federal government for his role in a drug conspiracy that investigators said was connected to the Sept. 23, 2019, shooting, the U.S. Attorney said.

    Pressley was dead when she was found inside her vehicle by a passerby. The 20-plus-year veteran of the post office was delivering mail on her route when she was shot multiple times around 3 pm with a semi-automatic weapon, according to an indictment and other records in the case.

    The motive in the case appears to have been an attempt to steal a package containing marijuana, McCoy said.

    This will not stand in our backyard, McCoy said at a Wednesday news conference in Kingstree, the county seat of Williamsburg County. First and foremost, my heart goes out to Ms. Pressleys family for their profound loss. She was an exceptional woman who spent a lifetime in service of her community,

    Seward and Davis were initially arrested on state murder chargesin the weeks following Pressleys death. They have been in jail since then.

    The federal charges came after an extensive joint federal, state, and local investigation involving more than 70 law enforcement officers, the U.S. Attorneys office said.

    Seward is accused of shooting Pressley multiple times, and numerous shell casings were found at the scene, officials said Wednesday. Forensic tests from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service showed at least one fingerprint on a piece of mail connected Seward to the murder, according to a Williamsburg County sheriffs news release.

    Seward and Davis were charged with several crimes related to the murder and a drug conspiracy during the time of the murder, according to the indictment. They include killing Pressley with premeditation and malice aforethought while she was engaged in her official duties as a mail carrier; and obstructing the delivery of U.S. mail by means of actual or threatened force.

    The killing took place about 3 pm at the intersection of two rural two-lane roads, Senate Road and Morrisville Road, about 20 miles east of Kingstree, according to a state warrant in the case.

    Seward, Davis, and Barajas are charged in a marijuana distribution conspiracy, according to the indictment.

    Davis and Barajas are charged with using a telephone to facilitate the drug conspiracy on the day of the murder, according to the indictment.

    Additionally, Seward is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and carrying a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and causing the murder of Pressley by shooting her, the indictment said.

    When a member of our postal family is attacked, we pull out all stops to track down the perpetrator and deliver justice, said Tommy D. Coke, the postal inspector in charge of the Atlanta Division. Investigators from various law enforcement agencies worked more than 25,000 hours to deliver justice for Irene, Coke said.

    If convicted, Seward and Davis face a minimum sentence of life in federal prison, and Barajas faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison.

    The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, the 3rd Circuit Solicitors Office, North Charleston Police Department, and the Williamsburg County Sheriffs Office.

    Assistant United States Attorney Nick Bianchi is prosecuting the case.

    Pressley was survived by her husband and their five children, among other family members. She was a leader in her church, and was known as The Mother at the U.S. Postal Service by her co-workers, according to her obituary.
