FBI: Brittanee Drexel Missing Persons Case Now a Murder Investigation

brittanee_drexelABC affiliate WHAM reports that the search for Brittanee Drexel, an upstate New York teen who went missing in April 2009 after going to Myrtle Beach with friends, has shifted to a murder investigation.

Investigators stated during a news conference Wednesday that they believe Drexel was killed after being held against her will for several days in the area of Georgetown, approximately 60 miles south of Myrtle Beach.

Authorities did not reveal how they determined Drexel was likely deceased, but called the evidence “exhaustive.” South Carolina FBI Special Agent in Charge David Thomas, speaking at the press conference, said officials suspected the teen was dead for some time, but did not say so earlier to protect her parents and maintain hope that Drexel would be found alive.

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Drexel’s killer.
