Missing - Ashley Pegram
Ashley Pegram, 28, of Summerville has been missing for more than a week after going on a date with Edward Primo Bonilla, 30. Bonilla is now in custody on obstruction charges with a $400,000 bond after he lied to investigators looking into Pegram’s disappearance. He apparently told investigators he put a drunk Pegram out of his car at a gas station in Berkeley County because he couldn’t handle her. Investigators found video of her getting out of the car, then back into the car, indicating Bonilla lied. Common sense tells us there is only one reason for him to lie about that.
Bonilla has one prior general sessions charge from 2003 in Dorchester County. He was charged with Lewd Act on a Child Under 16. That charge was dismissed by the 1st Circuit Solicitor in 2006 for unknown reasons.
We hope this case doesn’t turn out like we suspect it will.
