Rose - MLatta - Krista - any other locals...
I'm trying to look at an on-line map of the MB / Surfside area. S. Ocean Blvd. stops and goes out to Hwy 17...basically because of the State Park? Then it appears if you take a left off of Hwy 17 onto 16th Ave. N you can pick up S. Ocean Blvd again there in Surfside...and then S. Ocean Blvd turns into N. Waccamaw Drive...is this correct?
How far can you actually go down the coast before having to cross back over to Hwy 17 to get back into PYL - GT areas?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.

The vehicle found that's related to a murder...what was the set of circumstances surrounding the murder?
10-12-2010, 07:40 AM #187
There's been several items that have been misreported:
1) obviously the timeline has been messed up from the beginning... (Though I cannot totally blame the media for this.. check it - We have PB's story, which gives us account #1. We have JG's story which gives us account #2. We have the security camera in the hotel, and the "street cam" account #3.
2) The sunglasses were never recovered, nor has it been confirmed whether they were Brittanee's.
3) Peter Broswick (need I say more?!)
4) For a while there it was unclear if the streetcam image was Brittanee Entering or exiting Bluewater.. (Hell I am still a little unclear on this)
Can anyone think of any more??? (I know there's more, but I am only on my first cup of coffee)

Paradox, I do recall mention of the inland ping. I'll try and rewatch the show today to confirm. But like mlatta says, these media reports are sometimes confusing/conflicting information. It is exhasperating trying to make it all fit with the info we have.
Hope this helps.
Good morning all sleuths and Brittanee! Today is Tuesday, 10-12-10. Maybe today will be the day that you are found and brought home to your family Brittanee!
:smiliecup: mlatta here's another cup of java for ya!
wm...and be sure your sin will find you out.

I have been pondering this "Botched kidnapping attempt" that occured back on 7-21-10.
I'm still not 100% convinced it happened.
I'm not calling anyone a liar, but let's say for a moment that I was a juror. As far as I know - the only evidence against the alleged perp is the fact that the victim picked him from a photo lineup. That is definately not enough to convince me "beyond a reasonable doubt"
In reading through some of the past threads around that time, it is asked "Why would she make it up?" Does anyone recall Bethany Storo? That really blew my mind! Why did she do it? You're guess is as good as mine! 15 seconds of fame? serious psychological problems? http://www.popfi.com/2010/09/17/woma...-her-own-face/
I saw pictures that were posted on Brittanee's thread from Willenfan21 (Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - View Single Post - SC SC - Brittanee Drexel, 17, Myrtle Beach, 25 April 2009 - Thread #11) those were taken the day of the alleged attempted kidnapping. There were blue skies, and what appeared to be a good number of people out and about.
Once again, I am not trying to insult the victim whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I really wish there was some physical evidence that backed her story.
REGARDLESS - after the arrest was made, and it was determined that the suspect had family ties with a suspect from another crime back in 1998 - it brought Shannon M.'s case back into light. I decided to look back at the facts that were gathered during that investigation. Wow. I understand that charges were dropped against all 5 suspects, citing lack of evidence as the reason. That doesn't prove they're innocent either. One of those suspects is currently incarcerated in Georgetown County awaiting trial for (unrelated) sexual assult charges. I'm going to try, over the next couple weeks, to see if I can obtain a copy of the arrest report, I'm anxious to read the details. I have a pretty bad feeling about this person. I know people who are hell-bent that those 5 individuals were guilty, and think that the dismissal was a gross miscarriage of justice.
In an effort to keep our minds open, there is one more thing to consider. Everyone knows in our justice system one is considered innocent until proven guilty. It is possible that these individuals had nothing to do with the SM case, nor BD, nor RM. Until we have more information, we have to draw conclusions in the court of our mind
One last thing, I'm not sure this was ever shared on here (http://www.thesunnews.com/2010/08/26...link=mirelated)
Officials at the 15th Circuit Solicitor's office confirmed Wednesday that the office has dropped all charges against three Pennsylvania men accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman at Broadway at the Beach on June 30.
The charges against Dallas Bubba Frutchey, 19, Troy Terell Wilson, 31 and Robert George Toma, 39, all of Easton, Pa., have been dropped, said solicitor's office victims' advocate Amy Ayars. She said the official paperwork has not been filed and she could not comment further.
The men were facing the charges after a 23-year-old Myrtle Beach woman said the three men had forced her into a van in the parking lot of Broadway at the Beach on June 30.
The woman said while she was waiting for her sister in front of the business, Frutchey demanded that she leave with him, grabbed her arm and yanked her to a van in the parking lot, police said. She told police that inside the van the men sexually assaulted her before she was able to get away.

Kate Waring murder trial
I was totally oblivious to this case.. it started as a missing persons case, turned out to be murder, with some crazy twists and turns!
The one thing that led me to read more on it was the fact that the family of the missing person is close personal friends with Andy Savage (Defense attorney, #1 in SC has been for MANY years, VERY wealthy!) Andy Savage had a "team" of private investigators working in the search. These PIs ultimately got one of the suspects to lead them to the body, which was deep in the woods of Wadmalaw Island, SC 4 months after she disappeared.
Brittanee had a PI at one time too! It was announced when Frank DV from AMBER Ready, Inc. announced that he was now working with the Drexel family on Brittanee's case. The PI's name is Marc ? (I honestly cannot recall his last name, though i am sure i have it written down somewhere)
Here is the whole story, as published in The Post & Courier (newspaper here in Charleston) in Chronological order:
This is kinda lenghty ...
Family offers $25,000 reward for information
Mom pleads for information about daughter
Coroner says remains are Waring's
Kamp: Waring tortured
Waring murder trial begins
Kamp details Waring's death
Kamp grilled over lies
Mack hatched plot to implicate Kamp in Waring killing, inmate says
No evidence of Waring's death found at Mack's home
Waring murder trial focuses on evidence
Investigator: Kamp grew angry during interview with neighbor
If you google Kate Waring, and then click images, you will see she was a very pretty girl.. It is such a shame she got mixed up with these people and their evil nature.. From all I read about her, it seems like she was a pretty good, sweet girl, who suffered from depression, and had substance abuse problems, which probably left her vulnerable for these lowlifes to take advantage of her. I hope this couple and the neighbor get the justice they deserve! My thoughts and prayers are with the family, may they find God's guiding hand in the path to healing...
Good night all!!

I leave for a day and I'm 3 pages behind!! I'm glad to see everyone in here brainstorming and posting such great thoughts.
Anyway, just wanted to clarify the "ping'' issues between Surfside Beach and GT. I do NOT believe Brittanee ever had control over her phone after she was abducted. I also do NOT believe that her kidnappers knew it was on or that pings could be traced. As for the ping timing problems:
Cell phone towers don't constantly link up to nearby phones. It can happen every 15 minutes, every 30, even every hour...depending on several factors. The ONLY time you will get frequent pings is if people are calling into the phone in question. EVERY time someone tried to contact Brittanee, the phone pinged from the nearest tower. I think the delay in the pings is that either
1. no one called her phone during that time period, OR
2. her phone was in a rural area and had no signal
It dawned on me just now that when I was down at the beach camping the other month, we had every possible IT convenience available to man. Yet, there I was, laptop out.....husband with his own phone and laptop.....and absolutely NO signal. Myrtle Beach Campground is south of BWR on Hwy 17....and, honestly, there is almost nothing between Myrtle Beach Campground and Georgetown.....so it wouldn't surprise me if it were hard or impossible for someone to contact her while her phone was in this area.
But, regardless, Brittanee's phone COULD have been in Georgetown the entire time....and just had no incoming calls to determine the closest cell tower.

While it's SUPER scary that these sorts of things keep occurring in Myrtle Beach, I believe the charges were dropped for insufficient evidence because the woman's story kept changing a bit. I believe that the business she was at was a bar and the men were hitting on and hanging out with her and her friends/sister. At the end of the night, I think the guys wanted to have sex with the girls. I think she either got drunk and had sex with one/all of them and felt bad later or they raped her after an all night drinking binge. ....she says they raped her...they say they didn't. No evidence either way.
While rape and sexual assualt is ALWAYS serious, I think this is a very different situation than that of Brittanee's, as she didn't appear to know or party with her kidnappers (that we know of). Further, whatever happened to/with this woman was done and over with in the parking lot....and she left of her own free will.
I agree with you that there could be other suspects....others we haven't ever considered.......but her cell phone pinging to Seven Mile Rd is pretty freaking coincidental, IMHO. I just can't get past that.....and I don't think that this group 'led police back to their home'. I think they did just the opposite:
I think they didn't know about phone pings. I think they thought about how well they know their area, how well they know all of the woods and trails and stream and rivers near them. I think they felt safe and comfortable in their county and within 5 miles of their home. I think it would be very unusual for an outsider to even know about Georgetown....much less to feel comfortable driving through there after dark. Finally, I think the charges against this group for the other murder they got away with were pretty solid charges. They had CONFESSIONS!! That said, what is the possibility that there is ANOTHER group of murderers living in Georgetown, SC??
