UPDATE 8/26/16 – The FBI today have stated that Brittanee was abducted, gang-raped, shot to death and thrown into an alligator-infested swamp in the dense forests near McClellanville. FBI agent Gerrick Munoz account, contained in a federal court transcript obtained by The Post and Courier, is based on a statement from a prison inmate, who is serving a 25-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter. The inmate stated that Taquan Brown of Walterboro, told investigators he went to a “stash house” in the McClellanville and saw Brittanee in the house with a couple of other men, including Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor “sexually abusing Brittanee Drexel.” While he was there Brittanee ran from the house but was caught and “pistol-whipped” and taken back inside. Shortly after he heard gunshots, and assumed Brittanee had been killed. Rumors had stated that Brittanee’s body was placed in a pit, or gator pit, to get rid of her body.
It is well known that inmates will say all kinds of things in order to get time away from jail. In some cases they will tell the truth in order to get lesser sentences. Time will tell what is truth in this case.
Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor, who was the one implicated and he has said the story is a bunch of “craziness.”
Original story: Brittany Drexel, 17, vanished during Spring Break on April 25, 2009 from Myrtle Beach after leaving the Blue Water Inn to return to her hotel. She had gone on Spring Break without her mother knowing and traveled with some friends to the area.
