There was no media circus or protests after this young woman was murdered. Nothing…
A teenage girl from New York who disappeared seven years ago while on Spring Break in Myrtle Beach may have been gang-raped, killed, and fed to alligators, new information reveals.
Brittanee Marie Drexel, then 17, traveled to Myrtle Beach from Rochester in 2009 with some friends without telling her parents and disappeared without a trace after leaving her friend’s hotel on April 25.
In June, investigators said they believed the missing teen was dead, and offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
On Friday, an FBI agent gave the first detailed account of what authorities believe happened to the teen, based on an account from an imprisoned man who says he saw Drexel’s horrific last moments and made a jailhouse confession, according to the Post and Courier.
FBI agent Gerrick Munoz said in a report, citing the prisoner’s account, that Drexel was being held in a ‘stash house’ outside of McClellanville, about an hour outside of Myrtle Beach.
Police had previously said they believed that the high school student was held for at least three days against her will near McClellanville, as that is where they traced signals from her cell phone after her disappearance.
