Person interested in Brittanee Drexel’s disappearance arrested

GEORGETOWN CO., SC (WROC) – A person of interest in the Brittanee Drexel case was arrested on Wednesday, for obstruction of justice.

Raymond Moody is a registered sex offender who spent over 20 years in a California prison. Police searched his apartment in South Carolina after Drexel disappeared in 2009.

At the time, Moody claimed he was not in the area when Drexel went missing. In 2012, investigators discovered he had been ticketed at nearby Surfside Beach the day after Drexel disappeared.

According to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, Moody was arrested and jailed for obstruction of justice on May 4. Investigators have not provided any information indicating that Moody’s arrest was related in any way to the Drexel case.

Drexel’s father, Chad Drexel, said Tuesday he had received no new information and was awaiting news from the FBI.

Brittanee Drexel disappeared during spring break in Myrtle Beach in 2009. The FBI announced in 2016 that witnesses claimed she was taken to McClellanville, where she was assaulted, murdered and fed to alligators.
