2 others charged after deadly Clarksville drug deal


Two additional suspects have been arrested about a week after a Clarksville man was killed in an apparent drug deal gone bad.

Brandon Becker, 19, and Brandon Smith, 29, both of Clarksville, have been charged with criminal homicide and booked into the Montgomery County Jail.

Chad Barry Bennett, 29, of Clarksville, was previously charged with criminal homicide in connection with the April 14 death of 31-year-old Mark Anthony Walraven, also of Clarksville.

Clarksville Police responded at 5:47 p.m. to the Rural King parking lot on Fort Campbell Boulevard and found Bennett, who said he was struck in the head by another individual and his car was stolen. A silver 380 pistol was found in the parking lot.

At 5:56 p.m., police responded to a traffic collision at 478 Lafayette Road and found Walraven dead behind the when of Bennett's stolen car. Walraven had two gunshot wounds to his torso.

Investigators believe Smith had made contact with Bennett in order to purchase prescription pills. Police said that according to both Becker and Smith, they, along with Walraven, planned to rob Bennett and split the pills amongst them.

Clarksville police believe the incident may have been witnessed by several people. Witnesses are urged to call Det. Mike Ulrey at 931-648-0656, ext. 5483.
