28 Year Old Ashley Pegram Missing Since 4/3/15 in Dorchester County, SC after Date with Man She Met on Kik (Update: 30 Year Old Edward Bonilla Arrested)
28 year old Ashley Pegram has been missing since April 3, 2015 in Dorchester County, South Carolina after she went out on a date she met via the instant messaging service Kik. Pegram, a mother of three who lives in the Clemson Terrace neighborhood near Summerville, left home about 9:30 p.m. on her date and has not been seen nor heard from since. According to the incident report from the Sheriff’s Office, Pegram’s family identified the user name of the 18-year-old man she went out with. According to her sister, Pegram was not carrying a cellphone, credit cards or other identification. Ashley Pegram’s sister shares a cellphone with her, and they were able to find text messages indicating the man lives in Hanahan. The acquaintance Pegram met via Kik and who would be the last person ever to see her told police that she was heavily intoxicated so he kicked her out of his car around midnight near Main Street in Berkeley County.
Missing – Ashley Pegram
A 28-year-old Dorchester County woman has been missing since she went out on a date she arranged on an instant messaging service almost two weeks ago.
Ashley Pegram, a mother of three who lives in the Clemson Terrace neighborhood near Summerville, left home about 9:30 p.m. April 3 with a man she met through Kik, a messaging app for smartphones that she had used before to line up dates, according to her family. She never came home. She was last near the house in a slate-blue 2005 Hyundai Sonata.
Pegram is described as 5 feet 1 inch tall, 140 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, usually wearing black-framed glasses. She was wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and black flip-flops with sparkles.
Really, Ashley Pegram was heavily intoxicated so her date kicked her out of the car around midnight? Who is he, Joran Van der Sloot? This story is hardly believable. Police believe that foul play may be involved. Ya think?
An incident report states the woman’s sister found text messages between Pegram and her date, who identified himself on the dating application as 18-year-old Emoney Dom of Hanahan.
Dom reportedly told the sister that he kicked Pegram out of his car near a Kangaroo Gas Station on Main Street in Berkeley County around midnight.
Detectives are continuing to investigate Dom’s involvement.
Deputies say Pegram was last seen in the early morning hours of April 4 at a gas station on College Park Road. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Foul play is “a definite possibility,” Dorchester County deputies say.
Police in South Carolina have arrested a man on an obstruction charge in the case of a woman who went missing after a date she arranged through a messaging app, reports CBS affiliate WCSC.
Wednesday night, deputies arrested 30-year-old Edward Bonilla and charged him with obstruction of justice in the case, Dorchester County Sheriff’s Capt. Tony Phinney told the station. Police confirmed to WCSC the suspect is the same man she went out on a date with that evening.
According to the station, Bonilla is accused of providing false and misleading information about Pegram’s disappearance.
Deputies arrested 30-year-old Edward Bonilla and charged him with obstruction of justice, according to Dorchester County Sheriff’s Capt. Tony Phinney. According to court documents, Bonilla is accused of providing false and misleading information about the disappearance of Ashley Nichole Pegram.
Authorities did not initially say how Bonilla was connected to Pegram when his arrest was announced Thursday morning.
Detectives say Bonilla spoke with deputies on or about April 8 and provided information about Pegram’s disappearance. Court documents state detectives following up on that information learned it was false and misleading. A judge set a $400,000 surety bond for Bonilla Thursday morning.
Deputies say the Summerville woman was reported missing by family on April 4. Family members say they last saw Pegram on Friday, April 3 around 9 p.m. when she left to go on a date with an unknown man that she was talking with on the social media site “Kik.”
That man was later identified as Bonilla, officials say.
If you have any information on Pegram’s whereabouts, call Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office at 843-832-0333, or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
