BREAKING NEWS: In light of pending developments, Brittanee Drexal’s family retains former Casey Anthony family attorney Brad Conway.
All Brittanee Drexel wanted was to go to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break 2009. When her mom, Dawn Drexel, told her “no” she went anyways, pretending to be staying at a friend’s. Dawn reflects that her gut told her not to let Brittanee go, that something bad was going to happen, her gut was right. That was the last time Dawn Drexel saw her daughter alive…
Brittanee Drexel disappeared from Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach on April 25, 2009. She was only 17 years old when she traveled to Myrtle Beach from New York for spring break.
For 7 years there’s been nothing, no leads, no phone calls and no information from law enforcement. The Drexel family has been left to only hope and speculate.
Now, a representative from the FBI will be among the officials in a McClellanville court on Wednesday, June 8, to discuss the latest developments in Brittanee Drexel’s case, and the outlook is grim. Drexel’s family will be briefed on the major developments on Tuesday, prior to the press conference.
Special Agent in Charge David A. Thomas with the FBI will be joined by Myrtle Beach Police Chief Warren Gall, Charleston County Sheriff J. Al Cannon, Jr., Berkeley County Sheriff S. Duane Lewis, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel, and United States Attorney Bill Nettles at the McClellanville Magistrate’s Court at 1 p.m. on Wednesday to discuss major developments in the case.
Lt. Joey Crosby, with Myrtle Beach Police Department, said in April the case remains wide open, and they have used age progression to identify Drexel. Drexel would now be 24 years old. “Officers are working very hard to bring closure to this investigation so we can find out what happened and what occurred within our city and what happened to Brittanee,” Crosby said.
