The then 16-year-old Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor allegedly abducted and murdered Britanee Drexell in 2009. After the murder, he fed her body to alligators.
Shaun Taylor, a former merchant seaman who now works as a tow truck driver and mechanic and his mechanic son, Da’Shaun Taylor, have been implicated in the disappearance of the teenager, 7 years ago.

By June this year, investigators said they believed the missing teen was dead, and offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
This week in Charleston South Carolina, agent Gerrick Munoz delivered the first detailed account of what investigators think happened to the teen from Rochester, New York, after she disappeared in 2009 while on a spring break trip. His court testimony is based on a statement from a prison inmate who claims to have witnessed the event.
Brittanee Drexel was 17 when she was abducted, abused and murdered. She vanished after leaving a friend’s hotel in Myrtle Beach in April 2009, her body was never found
Convicted killer Taquan Brown. FBI agents have implicated 23-year-old Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor in a new report that cites his jailhouse confession
He claims in his statement that Drexel was being held in a ‘stash house’ outside of McClellanville, about an hour outside of Myrtle Beach. Police had previously said they believed that the high school student was held for at least three days against her will near McClellanville, where they last traced signals from her cell phone after her disappearance.

The inmate told agents he entered a ‘stash house’ in the days after Drexel’s abduction and saw Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor, then 16, ‘sexually abusing’ Drexel.
Brown said he then went outside to give Da’Shaun’s father, Shaun, some money, and saw the girl run from the house, but she was caught and ‘pistol-whipped,’ and dragged back into the house. He then heard two gun shots and later saw the victim’s body wrapped up and taken away.

Munoz said that, according to the second inmate, who got the account secondhand, Da’Shaun allegedly managed to get the girl from where he met her in Myrtle Beach back to McClellanville and then ‘showed her off, introduced her to some other friends that were there … they ended up tricking her out with some of their friends, offering her to them and getting a human trafficking situation.’
When the teen’s disappearance began to receive massive publicity, the alleged abductor saw a problem, so ‘murdered and disposed of’ his hostage.
Father Shaun and son Da’Shaun as yet, are just suspects with no hard evidence against them. As part of an effort to get Da’Shaun to cooperate in the Drexel case, he is currently being held on additional charges relating to being the getaway driver for the robbery of a McDonald’s in 2011.
Da’Shaun had confessed and served his time for that crime, but agents hit him with parallel charges. His lawyer, David Aylor, calls the ploy a ‘squeeze job’ to get him to admit to the Drexel crime, which his lawyer says he didn’t commit.
Da’Shaun posted $10,000 bail and was released.
Neither Shaun Taylor, nor his son Da’Shaun have commented on the allegations. But Da’Shaun’s mother, Joan Taylor, 44, in an interview said her son is “fed up with it and he thinks it’s crazy.”
Joan Taylor believes the authorities are ‘trying to pin something’ on her son and husband.
She believes the authorities are ‘trying to pin something’ on her son. She said the implication that her son and husband were responsible for Drexel’s rape and murder are untrue and ‘not in our nature.’
She was stunned during the bond hearing when she heard the FBI agent’s testimony that implicated both her son and husband in Drexel’s abduction, rape and murder, Joan Taylor said.
“I wanted to just scream and yell.” She called the inmate’s story and the fact that the government is running with it “craziness.” The crimes her husband and son have been implicated in are “not in our nature,” she said.
She said her son lost his arm in a childhood accident, works as a mechanic, and supports a son, daughter, and grandmother.
Her son and husband are fed up with the allegations and think they’re ‘crazy,’ she said.
