An alleged armed robbery at a Fort Pierce mobile home park on March 1 resulted in two deaths, two arrests and the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s office looking for another suspect.
The victim of the attack, Kyle Davis, was killed at the Cypress Bay Mobile Home Park. However, prior to his death, Davis shot and killed one of the suspected thieves, Chase Harrington Orvis. Meanwhile, two other suspects, 32-year-old Kerry Billy Philyaw, and 29-year-old Phillip L. Gray, were charged with second-degree murder, using a deadly weapon in the commission of a robbery and battery.
According to officials, Gray was wounded during the robbery and Philyaw fled the scene on foot. Gray was treated at Lawnwood Regional, then arrested on $1.1 million bond, while Philyaw was later captured and is being held without bond.
The three men had been driven to the park by 20-year-old Logan Nicole Fulford, who is still at large. She had attempted to take Gray a local hospital after he had been wounded, and is charged with second degree murder and robbery for her role as the getaway driver. In addition, Fulford also has a warrant against her charging that she provided false information to law enforcement.
