Two of the four people who allegedly broke into a West Virginia mine
earlier this month and got trapped inside for several days have been taken
into custody, and arrest warrants have been issued for the remaining two.
The foursome allegedly broke into a West Virginia mine to steal copper,
according to court documents. Three of those who entered the mine got lost
and were rescued after almost a week underground.
Eddie Williams Jr., 43, turned himself in on Friday evening. He is charged
with breaking and entering, felony conspiracy and giving false information
to law enforcement officers, according to a criminal complaint.
Cody Beverly, 21, was also arrested on Friday, according to Raleigh County
law enforcement officials.
Williams initially told police that he entered the abandoned Rock House
Powellton mine in Clear Creek, about 30 miles southeast of Charleston,
West Virginia, to search for three friends who were trapped, the complaint
He later recanted, though, telling police that he went inside with Cody
Beverly, 21; Kayla Williams, 25; and Erica Treadway, 31, on Dec. 8, "to
see if they left anything behind, copper, or anything."
The arrest warrants for the two women allegedly involved in the incident
remained outstanding as of late Friday evening.
Eddie Williams said the pairs separated "to have sex" with he and Treadway
going in one direction and Beverly and Kayla Williams going in another.
"Eddie said that the pairs had split up to have sex with each other,"
according to the criminal complaint. "Interviews with Kayla, Cody and
Erica at a later date did say that they had separated to have sex."
Eddie Williams managed to escape on Dec. 10, and reported the others
missing. They were pulled out of the mine three days later after a large-
scale rescue operation.
While the rescue efforts were underway, Kayla Williams' father, Randy
Williams, told ABC News, "The reason they're in there is to get copper."
"It's worth money," he said. "A couple years ago it was up to almost $4 a
pound. You could go into a mine and make $1,000 a day."
Eddie Williams said the group "had entered the mine before to try and make
money," according to the complaint.
Beverly and Kayla Williams spoke with reporters outside of Charleston
General Hospital, where they were taken for an evaluation after being
rescued. Although they didn't offer details on why they entered the
underground mine, they said the experience had taught them the biggest
lesson of their lives.
"This is a life-changing experience for me," Beverly told ABC News. "This
is the biggest lesson I've ever learned in my life."
