An important revelation about Raymond Moody arrest in Georgetown, South Carolina, has given hope of justice for the late Brittanee Drexel. He is a 62-year-old man from SC but should not get confused with American philosopher Raymond Moody.
In May, FBI discovered that the remains were specifically identified as Brittanee Drexel thanks to dental and DNA records.
Investigators believe that she was buried there on the 26th of April 2009, following the horrors she endured. She was only 17 years of age when she disappeared in the direction of Myrtle Beach.
Drexel’s mom, Dawn Drexel, thanked police for their tireless efforts, as well as the press for keeping the story in the news.
Raymond was detained for the crime in May 4. According to the warrant of arrest, Moody took “overt actions to conceal and dispose of evidence of a crime.”
A background check of Moody performed by the State Law Enforcement Division last week found that the accused obstruction of justice took the place on April 25, 2009.
Missing Brittanee Drexel Remains Were Found
The remains of missing 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel have been discovered and led to significant discovery and an ancestry match. The results opened the way to further investigation and police arrested Raymond Moddy on suspicion.
Dawn Drexel said, “This is a mother’s worst nightmare.” “Today like I have been for the last 13 years, I’m grieving for the passing of my beautiful daughter. We’ve made great strides towards the peace I had have hoped for.”
Brittanee’s father Chad Drexel, said the announcement was bittersweet and demanded more efforts to bring the killer of his daughter to justice.
As of 2012 Moody had been identified by police as an individual of an interest. Police checked his hotel room close to the spot where his cellphone last sent out a signal.
The investigation did not make much progress until the year 2016 when the FBI stated they believed that the teenager was dead.
The authorities said she was kidnapped and transported 60 miles to the south, where she was taken to the town of fishing of McClellanville at a press event.
