West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies arrested Ronald Wilkerson, 40, and charged him with kidnapping. Wilkerson was arrested on a warrant and held him as a fugitive for Duson detectives.
Duson Police Chief Andrew Frank says he has bene in touch with Felix.
He is the brother of the first person arrested in the case, Leon Wilkerson, 43. Leon Wilkerson was charged with second-degree kidnapping and simple rape in the Felix case.
The FBI is now involved in the Felix case as well, according to the “Find Keiosha Felix Now” Facebook page. The page also states a Crime Stoppers reward is expected soon.
Police also served a search warrant at Maison de Mere, a home in Lafayette for teenage girls who are pregnant or parenting a child, as part of their investigation into Felix’s disappearance.
Along with the Wilkerson brothers, two of Felix’s relatives have been arrested in connection with the case–her cousin, Portia Felix, and her aunt, Patricia Andrus. Their arrest affadavits state the two lied about Keiosha Felix’s disappearance. Portia Felix was charged with obstruction of justice and Andrus with accessory to rape and improper supervision.
Duson Police continue to search for information about Keiosha Felix as they fear she is in danger. Also very little is known of the whereabouts of Keiosha Felix’s one-year-old child.
Keiosha Felix has been missing since April 30.
