(JustPatriots.com)- On Wednesday morning, a Georgetown County man entered a plea of guilty to Brittanee Drexel’s murder, kidnapping, and rape.
In his first appearance in court, Raymond Moody, 62, pleaded guilty to the charges against him and informed the judge that he understood what he was doing and was happy with the defense.
According to law enforcement, Raymond Moody confessed to the murder of Brittanee Drexel, 17, last Spring after being cornered.
According to Moody’s account to the police, Angel Vause and Moody picked up Drexel from the Myrtle Beach strip to “party.” Drexel entered the vehicle, according to Moody. Moody claimed they traveled south of Georgetown to Poleyard Boat Landing to smoke marijuana. It was the last place her cellphone ‘pinged.’
Moody asserts that after Vause left the area, he raped Drexel before strangling her. According to Moody, he interred her body the following morning.
According to reports, the FBI claims that Moody was very clear about how they could find the victim 13 years later.
According to FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Reid Davis, she is exactly where Mr. Moody predicted she would be. She was face down, six feet underwater, with her head in a specific direction.
Authorities were able to track down Brittanee and her killer thanks to those disturbingly specific details. However, there are still uncertainties regarding Moody’s 13-year activities.
Reports show that Moody had already served a 40-year prison term for kidnapping and raping an 8-year-old child. In the 1980s, he was accused of comparable crimes in seven other cases.
After the state concluded its case, Moody quickly issued a statement expressing regret for what he had done to Brittanee Drexel.
Moody explained that he was an evil person. When he killed Brittanee Drexel, he was a monster and is still a monster. He claimed he couldn’t begin to describe how awful he felt and was very sorry. Following the completion of all testimony, the judge gave Moody a life sentence for the murder, kidnapping, and rape of Brittanee Drexel.
No one deserves to be assaulted or murdered. However, people have got to be more discerning about drugs and strangers.
