The new revelations in the Brittanee Drexel case aren’t pretty; in fact, they are horrifically disturbing. But, if true, they may bring some semblance of closure to a family that has been through years of torture by way of simply not knowing what happened to their loved one.
Earlier this year, investigators from Myrtle Beach updated the public on the investigation into the vanishing of missing teen Brittanee Drexel. During the press conference, law enforcement advised the public that they believed that Drexel had been murdered, and they offered up a $25,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of her killer(s). Authorities also reportedly announced that they believed they knew who was responsible for the death of the missing and presumed deceased teen.
The newly-reported court document apparently answers many questions about the final, tragic hours of missing teen Brittanee Drexel. Unfortunately, none of the newly released information is good news.
According to the court document, which is the account of the events leading up to the death of missing teen Brittanee Drexel in the words of an FBI agent by the name of Gerrick Munoz, Brittanee was abducted, sexually assaulted by several people, and then shot. After her death, her assailants reportedly dumped her body in an alligator-infested area of a local swamp. Reportedly, the story of Brittanee Drexel’s death was relayed to the FBI agent in question by an incarcerated convict who claimed to have been there when missing teen Brittanee Drexel died.

In his report, Munoz, inmate Taquan Brown came upon Brittanee Drexel’s harrowing final hours when visiting what is known as a “stash house” near McClellanville. A stash house is reportedly a location where abducted human trafficking victims are kept until they can be further trafficked.
According to the jailhouse source, Brittanee Drexel was killed within days of her disappearance.
Brown told the FBI agent that he came across missing teen Brittanee Drexel when he visited the stash house with a few other guys. When he went inside, he claims to have seen then-16-year-old Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor sexually assaulting Drexel. He claimed that there were other people in the room, as well.

Later, when Brown was outside, he claims that Brittanee Drexel tried to escape her captors by running from the residence, but was apprehended by the people holding her captive, “pistol-whipped,” and dragged back into the house where she was shot and killed. According to the jailhouse source, he believed that 16-year-old Taylor was the man behind the trigger.
After her murder, missing teen Brittanee Drexel was allegedly dumped in a “gator pit” to be disposed of. Brown told the FBI agent that he didn’t actually see Drexel’s body disposed of, but that he’d heard the account from several eyewitnesses.
According to the FBI agent’s report, multiple areas have already been searched in an attempt to locate the remains of Brittanee Drexel. So far, investigators have come up empty-handed.
Reportedly, the jailhouse recounting of the final terrifying moments of Brittanee Drexel’s life has been confirmed by a secondary source, also an inmate. The second inmate reportedly told the FBI agent that Brittanee Drexel was originally “picked up” by her alleged killer near where she disappeared from her spring break vacation in Myrtle Beach.
So far, neither Brittanee Drexel’s devastated family nor the FBI is commenting to the media about the new reports of the missing teen’s fate.
