    That's strange...
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    It IS strange. I don't think LE would let on if they had access to someone's myspace and were investigating it. OR maybe they do and they're sick of people calling them to find out if they do have access. My heart tells me that she or someone else just put that up there for whatever reason. Anyone else notice how pretty she was? Her light blue eyes reminded me of Britt's.

    I am "old school" and not too savy with these social networking sites. It is really weird to me. Why would LE or detectives want anyone to know it was their web site? I would think they would be discrete about something like that. My first thought was maybe they put up a web site to see if the "perps" went on line looking for her. But of course that is rediculous as they are not going to respond to anything that has MB police or detectives all over it. I'm just really puzzled by this. People do some really strange things. I sure hope this girl is on the up and up. Brittanee needs a break and needs to go home.

    http://www.myspace.com/111475890 It states "We the detectives of Myrtle Beach" have obtained this web site???? Any ideas on this one?
    I would tend to thing the "detectives of myrtle beach" is somewhat tongue in cheek, or possibly even a not so veiled insult to LE...JMO...

    Meh.

    I prefer to hear what the WS who have dedicated hours upon hours and weeks and months to well over a year to Brittnee.

    What say you all? I trust your opinions more than any news source of LE. TIA!
    LE knows exactly who the guys are that took Brittanee. They know them down to how they chew on their finger nails.

    to take that one step further, that would mean there is no chance she is alive...i really didn't think she was but i guess was still praying against all odds... and further still then they would know that these perps are (or are not) connected... not that they would say if they were...

    There would not be ANY pictures on that girl's site if the real Myrtle Beach Police Department got ahold of it. With no explanation or their logo. It would just disappear.
    Seems like she wants attention for her incident.

    RM speaks to the press about her incident: http://www2.tricities.com/news/2010/...ach-ar-348371/
    http://www.wmbfnews.com/Global/story.asp?S=12864913

    Anyone else feeling like something's fishy?? I don't know why, but something about this story bothers me.....or maybe the victim herself just doesn't sit well with me.
    This is reportedly a victim of an intended crime....so I hesitate to say anything more than that.....but I really hope there was some evidence under her nails or blood from the POI's nose that was found at the scene. I'm concerned that a near kidnap victim would release her personal info to news outlets.....that she would release things like her high school and her photo. Not a school photo, but a photo where she is looking kind of sultry at the camera. Again, it's just a feeling....and I have NO reason to feel this way based on what we know now.....so I'm dropping it.

    I REALLY want to go back to 7 mile rd and look at vehicles! I think the one thing that keeps lingering for me is that--however Brittanee was taken--she was placed into something where she wouldn't be seen as easily by other motorists. I continue to believe this is a van of sorts....one that has high or no windows in the back. A conversion van.....or something similar!

    so good i had to quote it twice ... but seriously, forgive me for thinking in bits and pieces but if they know who it is and know them that well...and they bought SLED in (did I get the acronmym right?) with someone who has such a good track record...do you think they're gonna serve up the POI's to him on a platter and count on him to make it stick...or did they bring him in because they can't bring forward the names (for whatever reason) but they know he can not being under the same political restraints they are? sorry for the run-on. this would bode well, i would think, for a much quicker resolution.

    Interesting (from the above web-site - news video clip) she looks around after this happens and high tails it back to her hotel. Broad daylight...several people should have been around and no one comes to her aid? No one sees anything?

    I have a funny feeling that when this all comes down it will somehow link to Brittanee...

    Wow! What are the chances of an attempted abduction so close to where Brittanee went missing and there's NOT a connection?!

    1. Both young
    2. Both thin
    3. Both caucasian
    4. Both blond-ish
    5. Both alone, walking

    I am curious to know if they were both texting while walking...I live in a city and you wouldn't believe how many people get practically hit by a car they are so glued to their cell phone! If these gals are walking around, unaware of their surroundings because they are so into their texting...it may make them an easy target...it would be easier to attack someone off guard then someone who sees you coming!

    Also, I wonder...if it wasn't these 3 guys who abducted Brittanee, could they be working with the same people who did?! 3 guys in the middle of the day, in a classic rusted out, rape van (come on everytime I see an old beat up conversion van I think of rapists!) just driving around snatching girls off the street in broad daylight?? No way. Most of these crimes are crimes of opportunities, but these guys had a driver, a plan, 2 guys who were trying to grab her off the street...it seems very well orchestrated. Random rape crimes are not this well thought out...at least in my opinion. I am now starting to think trafficking again...

    and on the note of texting...this poor young woman said there were witnesses who didn't help her?!?! OMG! Are people so into themselves, their cell phones, their blackberry's, their conversations that when a young woman is screaming, fighting, being pulled into a van by a bunch of thugs they don't run to help?! Or even capture a license plate number?!?!

    Unless I had children with me, which I couldn't leave unattended, there is NO WAY I would stand there and watch it happen.

    Everyday I am more and more saddened by what our culture has become.

    great post Virginia Doll! We know Britt was always texting- good question about RM... Agree with what your saying about the plan...Who knows how often they may "cruise" in this manner...scary...

    the other thing I am wondering is...if these guys are cruising around with a plan, a driver, etc....this couldn't have been the first time a crime like this was reported. It makes me wonder the similarities between many unsolved missing person/abductions in MB.

    I think the MB Police Dept needs to face the facts: there is a ring of criminals out there preying on young girls for sex, drugs, possibly human trafficking. Seriously?! These guys had a rape van, a driver! Regular old rapists probably don't go to this kind of trouble. Geeze! By finding reasons not to link each case they are allowing it to go on. A lot of people on here talk about the almightly dollar, and not wanting to scare off tourists...so maybe the police get pressure from the mayor to keep a positive image...who knows!

    I have a connection--multiple abductions and rapes occur in your city! Why is there so much of the same type of crime?! As far as I am concered, that is the only connection I need! LOL!

    My hinky meter is going off! This girl just comes off very fake, and her statement about what happened last year. I just have to wonder if she's seeking publicity. Also, as far as the myspace goes, 1.)she's seeking publicity, or 2) she is trying to stop people from harrassing her, sending wacky notes, telling them LE took it over.

    IMO after seeing the myspace and this I'm starting to wonder if she made this all up. If so shame on her. Also, I thought she was from Tennesee the myspace says Alabama.

    The same thought crossed my mind, but I hadn't said anything. I guess we'll find out if LE discovers the story to be untrue.

    I hope she didn't...and I honestly can't see why someone would....they had to have taken blood evidence from the bloody nose..I can't see her escaping without SOME DNA evidence (Skin under fingernails, etc.)

    If she did, well, I'm going to be horrible and say that I'm glad it's highlighting Brittanee's case (I know that's wrong to condone)

    i have been thinking the same thing...as krista said, the sultry picture she provided is a little questionable (although i was hesitant to say it)...it's kind of like an amateurish publicity picture for modeling. if she is full of it, i think we'll find out pretty quickly as info will probably start coming in from "friends" etc about what type of person she is. but i have to agree with truthful lies that if it brings life to britt's investigation then so be it.

    Since the attempted abduction, Brittanee has received lots of attention as we already know. Here are a rundown of the articles that mention Britt just for filing purposes. I know most of them have been posted already, but I think I'd like to be able to find them all in one central location. Including all articles and their updates:

    As I had said sort of in the beginning of this 20-year-old female case, why did she wait 45 minutes to make a police call? Also on her FB page she wants to get into "forensics". I have not believed a word she said from day one. Again, part of me wants her story to be true and help with Brittanee's case, but part of me hopes LE realize early-on she is not being truthful.

    Of course she could be telling the truth, but trying to draw more attention to herself as she is an aspiring model also IMO.

    Back to Britannee

    Ate at the Seewee Restaurant in Awendaw last night. Her picture is still posted on their front door.

    Did not notice it in either of the gas stations where we stopped, on either side of 17. Could have been there & not seen it.

    Just as an aside, b/c I DO NOT know this info about Georgetown, but a fairly nearby small town, Walterboro, has had a TERRIBLE problem with gangs in the last couple of years. VERY small town basically taken over by gang related crime. It's been in our statewide news quite a lot. I would venture to guess that BD's abduction is somehow associated with gang, or gang wanna be, crime.

    I did not initially think this, but as we drove North on 17 last night & I saw all the tagged buildings (gang graffiti spray painted on windows & walls), it dawned on me that this is probably why LE is taking so long to nail this all down. The gang bust in Walterboro has been huge, all the way to federal LE, & I'd be willing to GUESS that maybe these guys wanted to either be like that, or already were headed in that direction.

    TOTALLY my OPINION based on local goings on.
