CHARLESTON, South Carolina — It’s been more than seven years since a teenager from Rochester, New York went missing during a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
New court documents reveal disturbing details about what the FBI believes happened to her.
According to WMBF, FBI agent Gerrick Munoz testified that Brittanee Drexel was abducted during her trip back in 2009, gang-raped at a “stash house,” shot after trying to escape, and then her body was fed to alligators.
Munoz testified during a detention hearing for Timothy De’Shaun Taylor in an unrelated case involving a 2011 robbery. Munoz said Taylor is one of the main suspects in the Drexel case.
According to WMBF, the FBI held a news conference back in June to announce that they believed the teen had been murdered.
In July, an attorney for the Drexel family said that the FBI had identified a suspect in the case, and that the teen was possibly the victim of human trafficking.
In the court document, Munoz testified that several witnesses said the teen’s body was put into a gator pit so it would be eaten. He said investigators found nothing after searching several alligator ponds.
Munoz said he expected several witnesses to come forward that will provide first-hand testimony that will confirm Taylor’s involvement in Drexel’s murder. So far, no charges have been filed.
