Earlier this month, Raymond Moody was booked in to a South Carolina jail. He has long been considered a person of interest in the disappearance of Drexel. He was charged with obstruction of justice.

In the spring of 2009, Drexel, 17, went to Myrtle Beach from her New York home without the permission of her parents. She went with friends for a spring break trip.

But she walked out of her hotel one day and seemingly vanished.

A "stash" house where Brittanee Drexel was supposedly kept

Drexel has not been seen since as police continue to investigate the incident. Both local law enforcement and FBI officials have looked at the case. An FBI agent testified at a court hearing that a witness claimed he saw Drexel at a drug house in Georgetown County. There, she was raped before she was killed and tossed into a pit with alligators.
