    I always thought that her 'friends' had something to do with her disappearance, but I guess they were just worried about their own arses, because they'd taken a minor over the State line and had been messing around with drugs.

    It was always suspected that her body had been thrown into a river and fed to alligators, and on considering the 'reliability', or lack thereof, of the two witnesses, it still only remains a suspicion.

    I wonder if the witnesses were offered some kind of deal on their sentences, or reward to their families?

    It seems odd that the detective would release such a Statement if that is all the evidence they have.

    If the guy doesn't fess up, which seems to be the case, he'll walk for sure, unless there's something more that the police are holding back on.

    At this stage, I'm still not convinced.

    Ugh, just saw this update. That poor frigging girl, if that really is what went down. I'm really curious if there are things the cops are withholding as far as what proof they have regarding that story, or if all they have is a "jailhouse confession"...

    The father of Brittanee Drexel responded Monday to new details about his daughter's murder, including the name of a suspect and gruesome details in court papers about how Brittanee was killed.

    Reports published Friday stated an FBI agent testified about an inmate's account of Brittanee's kidnapping. According to the report, a federal court transcript shows the agent describing the testimony of a prison inmate who has knowledge that Drexel was kidnapped in July 2009 while in Myrtle Beach, then was gang-raped, shot, then her dead body was put into a swamp filled with alligators near McClellanville, South Carolina.

    Chad Drexel, Brittanee's father, says he hired private investigators and has proof linking Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor to Brittanee's murder. He criticized family members of Da'Shaun Taylor for claiming he is innocent.

    Drexel said the FBI and private investigators had shared some of this information with him and Brittanee's mother, Dawn, earlier in the investigation.

    In the statement, Chad added that he knows "other specific evidence that [he] can NOT disclose at this time...which corroborates these testimonies." The family has additional information and evidence, Chad states, that they are "unable to disclose at this time."

    The full statement can be read below:

    I would like to set the record STRAIGHT with a STRONG REPLY to Joan Taylor's comments to the Post Courier in South Carolina this past Friday.
    Based on evidence the FBI and the Myrtle Beach Police department has gathered, along with FACTS and SPECIFIC INFORMATION gathered from a team of Private Investigators that I HIRED to work with local law enforcement actively during the case (which will SOON COME TO LIGHT) – we have no doubt Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor played a significant role in the abduction and murder of my daughter.
    Of course the mother of Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor is going to defend her son – as a father I can understand a need to defend your children. What I DON’T understand is defending your children when you must KNOW the truth. Her assumptions and words stated have been verified INCORRECT and couldn’t be farther from the TRUTH. We know Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor was witnessed by others (Witnesses NOT IN JAIL) with my daughter – we are just praying that they do the RIGHT thing and stop forward with what they know. Additionally he has been seen and followed to the EXACT area where my daughter's DNA was found. Joan Taylor claimed that the FBI and government are falsely accusing her son because of witnesses IN JAIL?! Well, we have other specific evidence, that I can NOT disclose at this time for the safety of my daughters case, which corroborates these testimonies!! Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor is KNOWN to be involved in dog fighting, bringing drugs to parties, and raping women (mostly Caucasian young women) he either picks up UNWILLINGLY or friends of friends that end up being drugged and taken there. This IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!! There is a TON more "EVIDENCE and HORRIBLE INFO" we would like the PUBLIC in that area be aware of for their safety, but we are unable to disclose at this time.
    WITHOUT A DOUBT ..........Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor is a suspect in my daughter's Disappearance and Murder! My family and I will be following the FBI's requests to keep specific details in our daughter’s case under wrap until THIS HORRIBLE PIECE OF TRASH goes to Prison for Life. After the guilty verdict, we will be happy to dispel these fairy tales that are being spun by Timothy’s family. It is disgraceful the way this FAMILY and their FRIENDS are supporting and claiming innocence of a "PROVEN" FELON without even looking at the evidence presented and the FACTS surrounding the case.
    Also adding this PIECE OF TRASH photo so everyone can see WHO HE IS!
    Please keep our family and our Brittanee in your prayers!
    Chad Drexel
    Father of Brittanee M Drexel

    Ugh, this poor father. Sounds like there is a shitload more evidence that those allegations are true than has actually been put out there, which isn't surprising.

    Apparently a new article, but I don't know which bits of info are new? Seems like none of them maybe

    New details in case of teen who was abducted, gang-raped, shot and fed to alligators: FBI

    There is new information on a headline-grabbing case out of South Carolina ? A 17-year-old high school soccer star goes missing, and what investigators believe happened to her is the stuff of horror movies, according to Crime Watch Daily.

    The Grand Strand in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a popular and relatively safe place for families and spring-breakers.

    On the night of April 25, 2009, everything changed when 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel walked out of a hotel and was never seen or heard from again. Now, seven years later, the FBI has new information.

    For weeks before her disappearance, Brittanee had been bugging her mother about going to Myrtle Beach with some friends for spring break.

    ?And I told her, I said ?No, Brittanee,'? said Dawn Drexel. ?She goes, ?Why? Nothing?s gonna happen to me, mom.? I said, ?Brittanee, there?s no parental supervision. I don?t know these kids you?re going with,? and I said, ?Something?s going to happen to you.'?

    So Brittanee asked mom if she could spend a few days at a friend?s home nearby in Rochester, New York.

    ?They had put this person on the phone and I thought I was talking to a parent and I told her she could stay since, you know, it was her spring break,? said Dawn.

    But it wasn?t a parent. Brittanee hopped in a car with three girlfriends and sneaked off to Myrtle Beach. And Brittanee would maintain the charade by phone right up to the day of her disappearance.

    ?I said ?What are you doing later on?? She said ?We?re just gonna watch a movie, and we?re just gonna hang out,'? said Dawn. ?She says, ?I?ll see you tomorrow. I love you.? And I told her I love her too and that was the last time I talked to her.?

    Then tomorrow came, and Dawn would learn the truth in the worst way imaginable, getting a call from Brittanee?s boyfriend, who had stayed behind in Rochester.

    ?He?s like, ?She?s in Myrtle Beach and they can?t find her,'? said Dawn. ?And I?m like, ?What? What do you mean they can?t find her?? And my heart just sank. I thought she was here the whole time and I felt in my heart she had made this decision that may have cost her her life.?

    Brittanee?s boyfriend told Dawn that Brittanee had suddenly stopped returning his texts and that none of her friends in Myrtle Beach had seen her since the previous night.

    ?And that?s when I was like ?We gotta go down there, I have to leave. I have to go down there and try to find her,'? said Dawn.

    ?I said ?Well, I?m packing, I?m on the way as well,'? said John Kahyaohlu, Brittanee?s father.

    As investigators start piecing together the final moments Brittanee Drexel was seen, a troubling timeline starts to emerge.

    Myrtle beach, South Carolina, was alive with partying spring-breakers when Brittanee?s parents got into town. But their 17-year-old daughter was no longer among the young revelers after mysteriously vanishing just a day earlier. Brittanee?s mom and dad and friends from Rochester, New York were searching frantically for her.

    They learn Brittanee had arrived in Myrtle Beach with her three friends from Rochester two days before she disappeared, hanging on the beach through the day, going to bars at night and doing a little partying.



    The last time Brittanee was seen was on security video showing her walking into a hotel where a male friend was staying, then leaving about 15 minutes later and walking toward the main road.

    ?To pick up her flip-flops,? Dawn said. ?Supposedly she left flip-flops in his car.?

    As the last known person to see her, police first interviewed him, then Brittanee?s three girlfriends.

    Cellphone records showed Brittanee?s phone pinged seven miles south of Myrtle Beach just half an hour after her disappearance. Then two and a half hours later, at 11:58 p.m., her cellphone pings again. This time it?s 50 miles south of Myrtle Beach, in a town called McClellanville, S.C. The phone then goes dead and the case goes cold after massive searches of the area fail to find any trace of Brittanee.

    Now more than seven years after Brittanee disappeared, a dramatic break in the case: Taquan Brown, a prison inmate serving 25 years for manslaughter in an unrelated case, told investigators he personally witnessed what happened to Brittanee, saying she was kidnapped, gang-raped, pistol-whipped and shot dead by a several men led by Da?Shaun Taylor of McClellanville.

    And what Britanee?s abductors are said to have done with her body after killing her is gruesome beyond belief: Investigators believe her body was dumped in a swampy area teeming with alligators.

    But Da?Shaun Taylor, 25, denied in an interview with Crime Watch Daily that he had anything to do with Brittanee?s disappearance. He says the same of Taquan Brown, the inmate who accuses him of killing her.

    ?I don?t even know the guy,? said Taylor.

    It so happens that just a year after Brittanee vanished, Taylor?s father Shaun was actually arrested for allegedly trying to abduct another young woman in the same location Brittanee vanished. But the charges were dismissed because he had an alibi, and his son also claims to have an alibi the day Brittanee disappeared.

    ?Da?Shaun has the ability to get himself out of 10 to life if he could provide information, and he just doesn?t have any information to provide,? said Mark Peper, Taylor?s attorney.
    The FBI has charged Da?Shaun Taylor in an unrelated armed robbery, and his attorney says he has an incentive to tell all he knows about Brittanee?s case.

    FBI Special Agent Mike Connelly concedes there is not enough evidence to charge Taylor in Brittanee?s disappearance. He says he can?t disclose details of the case.

    ?There?s so much I can?t say about this investigation, and the reason being it?s really at a sensitive point right now,? said Connelly.

    Connelly believes he will eventually bring Brittanee?s family the closure they want.

    ?There are people out there who know what happened to Brittanee,? said Connelly. ?We?re going to work as long as it takes until we can solve this case.?

    The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for Brittanee Drexel?s disappearance. If you have information, call (800) CALL-FBI.

    Dawn Drexel has started a nonprofit organization called Brittanee?s Little Angels to help families of missing children and children believed to be trafficked.

    Truth Finally Emerges About Teen Who Disappeared On Spring Break Trip In 2009

    http://www.opposingviews.com/i/socie...reak-trip-2009

    The teen's parents, police and the FBI searched extensively for her over the past seven years. Police now say Brittanee was taken from Myrtle Beach to McClellanville, south of Georgetown, South Carolina, and held against her will for a few days before she was killed.

    "After seven long years of waiting and praying for the return of my daughter, we know she is not coming home alive," said Dawn Drexel, Brittanee's mother. "Brittanee’s life was stolen from her in a brutal and senseless fashion."

    Police had already suspected the teen had been murdered, but had not told her parents until now. Investigators are now trying to find out who kidnapped and killed Brittanee in 2009. Her body has not been found.


    The lead investigator for the case said that "there has been an exhaustive amount of evidence in this case. The investigators are certain that this is what happened and I can't give you the exact details on that, but we are certain," according to WPDE.

    Police have posted a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.

    The girl's parents say they want to find the location of Brittanee's body. "We need your help so we can find Brittanee's remains and bring her home and lay her to rest," said Dawn at a news conference on June 8, asking those with information on the case to come forward.

    "Please help us to bring these killers to justice," Dawn said. "Help us to put them in prison where they belong for the rest of their useless lives. They will never again take one of our children away in such a brutal fashion."
    So sad, I'm sure they knew in their hearts that she wasn't coming home alive, but to have the FBI declare it publicly has to be rough.

    Also, her mother has apparently started a foundation on child safety. Article from November:

    Dawn Drexel starts foundation to teach child safety, empower families

    http://13wham.com/news/top-stories/d...power-families

    This Thanksgiving will be the seventh that the family of Brittanee Drexel will gather without her.

    Despite all she has lost, Dawn Drexel - Brittanee's mother - is now focused on giving back. She has started a foundation to honor her daughter and try to spare other families from experiencing her pain.

    When Brittanee walked out of the Myrtle Beach hotel and disappeared back in 2009, the Drexel family went down its own difficult and strange path.

    "Your child is the victim, but you're also the victim," Dawn said in an interview with 13WHAM News Tuesday.

    The Drexel family endured many difficult things during their daughter's disappearance and subsequent search for her.

    Among them were people who preyed on their vulnerability, including a bounty hunter.

    "He told us he'd help us find her and he talked to people about information," Dawn said. "It never led to anything and he kept asking for money and asking for money. And he ended up scamming us for $15,000."

    Another person wrote a letter to the Drexel family, claiming he had killed Brittanee.

    Both of these experiences added to their already excruciating pain.

    Details of the brutal crime against Brittanee and the Drexels finally surfaced in August. The FBI called Dawn and Brittanee's father to South Carolina.
    "It was very hard for me to hear," Dawn said. "I was just in tears. I couldn't talk (Bob had to talk for me) because I broke down. I didn't want to hear, I couldn't handle it."

    But Dawn did handle it. Not only that, she has now formed a foundation to help other families. Brittanee's Little Angels will help teach safety, and if a child does disappear, help empower families.

    It is a resource Dawn said she wishes now she had.

    "No one does anything like this for families," Dawn said. "If I can give people information, their child watches their surroundings to keep them from going missing, then I've done my job."

    Seven years of searching for Brittanee has taught Dawn a lot. At this point, she could walk away from it all.

    But she won't. She can't.

    "I don't ever want a family to go through what I've gone through," Dawn said.

    I read the other day about what reportedly happened to Brittanee, and it was horrible. Reading that reinforced what I say when I post that people like the ones involved in her case, who commit such horrid crimes, should be tortured to death.

    Fuck all that "cruel and unusual" bullshit. There is an element in our population that deserves neither freedom nor sympathy because they are the cause of so much heartache, pain, and fear. That element needs to be eliminated. Forever.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    FBI, law enforcement search in Georgetown County related to disappearance of Brittanee Drexel



    GEORGETOWN, SC (WBTW) – A new search connected to the 2009 disappearance of Brittanee Drexel started Friday morning just outside Georgetown city limits.

    News13 reached out to Drexel’s mom, Dawn Drexel, for comment on Friday’s search, but she said she was unable to comment and directed us to reach out to her lawyer. Brad Conway, Dawn Drexel’s attorney, confirms officials contacted his office and Dawn Drexel about “investigative activity” in connection to Brittanee Drexel’s disappearance happening in Georgetown County.

    FBI Supervisory Agent Don Wood confirms FBI agents are involved in “investigative activity” just outside the city limits of Georgetown. Wood says the FBI is being assisted by the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, and Myrtle Beach Police Lt. Joey Crosby confirms investigators from Myrtle Beach are also involved in the new Drexel search.

    Unmarked SUVs, trucks, and trailers line a dirt road just off of Highway 521 in Georgetown County. FBI agents and investigators with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office can be seen canvassing a wooded area.

    News13 has a crew at the scene, but nearly immediately after arriving was asked to leave because the area where the search is being conducted is private property.

    Agent Wood was not able to release any information regarding what new evidence or tip led federal agents to the specific area in Georgetown County. He also denied expanding upon what specific evidence agents hope to find in the area or how long the search would last.

    Drexel was 17-years-old when she vanished during her spring break trip to Myrtle Beach on April 25, 2009. Since that time FBI agents, officials from Myrtle Beach, Horry County, Georgetown County and SLED, have been involved in numerous searches for the teen or any evidence in the case.

    The CUE Center reports Drexel was abducted while walking street side to her hotel after retrieving her shoes from a person staying at the Blue Water Inn. Drexel is seen on surveillance video leaving the Bluewater Resort in Myrtle Beach, walking north on South Ocean Boulevard.

    In June 2016, the FBI, partnering law enforcement agencies, and the Drexel family hosted a press conference in McClellanville to ask for the public’s help in gaining new information that could reveal what happened to Drexel the night she went missing. A $25,000 reward was offered to anyone who can offer information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the disappearance and presumed killing of Drexel.

    During that press conference, FBI Special Agent in Charge David Thomas says investigators believe Drexel was taken from the Blue Water Inn in Myrtle Beach to McCllelanville, and was held against her will for several days.

    “We believe she traveled from the Blue Water, here, to this general area, and was here for several days,” Thomas said during the press conference. “We are confident in the fact that she was here.”

    No arrests have been made in her disappearance. Drexel’s cell phone transmitted its last known signal the day after she disappeared near the South Santee River, between McClellanville and Georgetown.

    Just two months after the press conference, in August 2016, court documents show an FBI agent testified in court that eyewitnesses say Drexel was taken to a stash house in McClellanville where she was gang-raped, shot after trying to escape, and her body was fed to alligators.

    In those same court documents, the name Timothy Da’Shuan Taylor is brought up in connection with Drexel’s disappearance. FBI agents name Tequan Brown as an eyewitness who says Taylor and others sexually abused Drexel. Brown says he saw Drexel try to run from the house and she was pistol whipped, and taken back inside. Brown says he later heard two gun shots and assumed Drexel was shot. FBI agents say several witnesses told them Drexel’s body was then fed to alligators. Drexel’s body has not been found and Davis has never been charged in her disappearance or presumed death.

    FBI agent Gerrick Munoz testified in August 2016 that he believes more witnesses will soon come forward to confirm Taylor’s involvement in Drexel’s murder, but as of right now, no one has been charged.

    If you know anything about Brittanee Drexel and what may have happened to her, call Wilmington-based CUE Center for Missing Persons 24 hour tip line at (910) 232-1687, or visit http://www.ncmissingpersons.org.

    They're digging on the property so maybe they got information Brittanee's body was out there?

    Neighbors say the FBI was there the previous day, then they came back with all the equipment. hmm

    FBI agent Don Wood described the work of officers Friday as “investigative activity." Wood said he couldn’t say which case they were investigating, but he did confirm there was "digging" on a private piece of property.

    Thank you Beli & Berm for the updates! I hope they find her. Of course part of me wants to think she took off and is out there somewhere, but I know that isn't the case. Her family deserves some answers and at the very least their daughters remains so they can begin to move on.

    Tink started this thread. It was close to home for her because she loved Myrtle Beach so much. I hope that the police are closer to finding out what happened to this girl, for her family's sake and for Tink.

    FBI searches for missing teen girl in gator pit


    An FBI investigation into the 2009 disappearance of a teenager has led agents to gator-infested woods in South Carolina.

    According to the Post and Courier, 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel sneaked away from her home in Rochester, N.Y., to spend spring break in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Drexel was last seen in security footage of a Myrtle Beach hotel on April 25, 2009. In 2012, Drexel’s mother told a TV station she had learned her daughter had been “miserable” on the trip and had planned to leave anyway on the day she went missing.

    After years of minimal progress in the investigation, authorities received a tip from Taquan Brown, an inmate, alleging that he learned what happened to Drexel while visiting a “stash house” in McClellanville, according to the Post and Courier.

    Brown told investigators in August that Drexel was abducted, gang-raped, shot and thrown into an alligator-infested swamp. Brown also implicated then-16-year-old Timothy Taylor and his father, Shaun Taylor, in the crime, according to authorities.

    The FBI told the Post and Courier that “several witnesses have told us Miss Drexel’s body was placed in a pit, or gator pit, to have her body disposed of. Eaten by the gators.”

    The FBI has initiated a search in Georgetown County, S.C., using an excavator to search a wooded area in Foxfire Court. Authorities have not provided any information as to what they expect to find in the woods.

    No charges have been filed against Taylor, who maintains his innocence.

    Investigators said Sunday that they are closer to making an arrest in the case, and are offering a $25,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.

    I'm surprised Lifetime hasn't jumped on this case for a badly written, based on a true story yet.

    Person of interest in Brittanee Drexel disappearance faces up to 20 years in prison

    Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor will be going to prison, but his exact sentence remains uncertain for a 2011 armed robbery that only caught the attention of federal prosecutors when agents were investigating the 2009 disappearance of Brittanee Drexel.

    Taylor pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit a robbery in July for planning and driving a getaway car in the six-year-old heist of a Mount Pleasant McDonald’s.

    He faces between 10 and 20 years in prison for the charge. But during his change of plea hearing, he also asked for the case against him to be dismissed as a violation of double jeopardy since he already pleaded guilty and served two years of probation for the crime in state court.

    Judge David Norton denied the motion to dismiss on Monday.

    Dylann Roof, Michael Slager and a man suspected in Brittanee Drexel's disappearance were accused of very different crimes, but their cases share at least one similarity: The state and federal governments both wanted to punish them.

    That common thread is now under the microscope in the U.S. Supreme Court, which could opt to send a message about such dual prosecutions. The result could have drastic implications for the Drexel suspect, the only one of the three whose case remains unresolved.

    The court agreed last week to consider overruling a law allowing each government to punish the same person for essentially the same criminal conduct. Their review of an exception to the Constitution’s “double jeopardy” clause comes in an Alabama case in which a felon was imprisoned by a state court for carrying a gun, only to see a federal judge dish out another sentence.

    That situation mirrors the prosecution of Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor, the man named in the investigation into the disappearance of Drexel, 17, from Myrtle Beach in 2009. Taylor had been serving probation on an unrelated robbery charge when federal prosecutors indicted him in the same robbery, hoping the second prosecution would make him cough up details about Drexel's presumed death. He didn't, and he was forced to plead guilty and face a 10-year prison term.

    A McClellanville-area man told the FBI he didn't know who had a hand in Brittanee Drexel's disappearance and had never seen the teenager in person.

    But Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor showed deception when he answered those questions in a polygraph examination, federal prosecutors said this week in seeking to imprison the 26-year-old for up to two decades.

    Their argument came as Taylor awaits a sentencing hearing on an unrelated robbery charge that the FBI pursued as he refused to reveal helpful details about Drexel's presumed abduction and about whether he or his family was involved.

    The officials had already said Taylor failed the exam, but court filings added new details about the suspicions he reported developing when the accusations against his family emerged.

    For Brittanee's sake & the people who loved her, I hope they have the right guy.


    But when they're bringing up something as dodgy as lie detector results to get the public onside + their focus on this guy seems to have come from nothing more than "eyewitness" testimony, I worry.

    I have deep concerns that not only is Brittanee still not getting justice, but that now other people are becoming the victims of injustice as a result of these developments


    Lie detector tests are no better than oujia board readings. & then there's this

    So again, I really hope she's about to get some measure of justice, but it will be an added cruelty to her family if they've been forced to visualise this nightmarish death when none of it's even true.

    Yeah, I don't know if I have ever told the story on MDS of my one and only lie detector. I had to take it for a job in LE that I was applying for, after the psych eval and physical tests. It showed that I was being deceptive on a lot of things that I know 100% that I was not being deceptive on. That was 20 years ago, and boy did that open my eyes about lie detector tests. BTW, they still offered me the job, and like a dumbass I took it. That was the job that made me leave LE and become an accountant.
