Brittanee Drexel and Shannon McConaughey were two teen girls, 17 and 19, who disappeared in South Carolina.
Shannon was found dead but Brittanee has not been found yet. The FBI appears to have deliberately cultivated false information from a prisoner and then, knowing that information was false, tried to 'close the case' on the basis of that false information.
Once more information was public and it was clear the FBI had deliberately promoted inaccurate information, the FBI promoted the view that it had been deceived by the inmate.
These two related cases are interesting because they provide what appears to be clear evidence of a 'private' security company, hired by the guilty, using its connections in law enforcement to skew a case.
There are several facts that should make a person hesitate to be sure Brittanee Drexel is dead.
1) The disappearance involved some acquaintances of hers who probably arranged with some local males to have her 'sold' and 'held'.
2) The fact that her cellphone pings stayed in a neighboring town for a while probably indicates she was taken to that town to be held initially, and then her phone and other items were taken south to be dumped.
3) The simple fact that she was an attractive young woman would have given her a high 'cash value' among the people most likely involved. In other words in the short term she was worth a lot alive, nothing dead.
4) If the most likely scenario played out she was held captive by a captor or captors who would have had more and more difficulty killing her the longer they kept her.
It's unknown of course whether she is alive or dead, but giving false closure to the family by pretending to have proof of her death, as the FBI did, is much worse than simply not investigating the obvious suspects, which the FBI also did.
Because of the very specific circumstances surrounding her disappearance, if she is dead it is more likely that she would have died of a medical issue than from overt violence like the fictional gunshot and alligator pit nonsense that the FBI was trying to sell.
Aside from the alligator pit deception there was also a false abduction deception arranged by state police, probably with help from the FBI
and several other less publicized deceptions, intended only to deceive the public and make it look like the FBI and police were doing their jobs when in fact they were simply doing work for the private firm hired by the actual culprits.
One of many peripheral stories involved a supposed 'zombie prostitute' and her family reunion.
January 2018, the person who the FBI tried to frame is to be sentenced. A lot of online people are promoting it as proxy justice because they believe the FBI nonsense.
Followed by international coverage of a strange local story
Followed quickly by
This 'zombie prostitute' story may have been contrived by 'law enforcers', with the cooperation of the people involved, to give credibility to the 'alligator pit' story among a certain segment of the public. If the case is investigated properly it will become clear why the 'zombie prostitute' tale is suspect.
More material will be added once research is done, but so far indications are /
1) Shannon and Brittanee were both held, at some point, by individuals with a connection to law enforcement in that region.
2) Both federal and state law enforcers deliberately mishandled each case. Their motives appear to have been both financial and the 'friend of a friend' motivation often employed by private security firms.
In the Drexel case, the firm that was hired to "keep the investigation in South Carolina" arranged a high profile state police investigator to be assigned to the case. They would have paid him for his efforts.
SLED agent Kin McKenzie was a high profile prominent investigator with the South Carolina state police. He was assigned to 'tidy up' the Brittanee Drexel case, which he did. His internet presence has largely been scrubbed, probably to cover his similar actions in other cases and cover his real employer. A few broken links...

The FBI side of the investigation involved getting a lot of FBI agents to ignore evidence. That could only be done easily by a senior FBI supervisor with a gift for spinning scenarios, and he or she could have a direct connection to the firm, for example through past military service, but money would still be offered as a politeness.
3) The later case, involving Brittanee Drexel, was misdirected very early, at a point when it was more likely she was still alive. This led to some conflicting motives among the people involved and probably explains their shoddy tradecraft.
4) It's unlikely that Brittanee is still alive, but it is very possible. Unless the investigation is refocused in the proper direction this already slim chance will dwindle further. There is a very slim chance she is one of countless people used by small drug and human traffickers, individuals and groups almost always closely linked to law enforcers and private security firms. Note the reference to DynCorp near the 16 minute mark of this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ldkw62WkaBU The involvement of a high dollar, well connected security firm in a local case involving a local crime involving people without a lot of money is unusual, unless the security firm has an interest in the crime.
5) Although the use of a private security firm to fix a criminal case involving a non wealthy client is not common, many other aspects of these cases are common. The corruption at the local, state and federal levels that are involved in this case, such as deliberately seeking false information from prisoners, is widespread in the United States.
During the Dakota Access pipeline protests, the group of oil companies that would profit from the pipeline hired several private security firms to make sure the protests were not successful.
These security firms, working for the oil companies, infiltrated the protestors, arranged arrests, managed media and engaged in various covert actions, most of which are not yet public.
"As of today’s date there are several Security Companies working for the DAPL pipeline. TigerSwan Security is in charge of the DAPL Intelligence and overall supervisor of the other security companies. Leighton Security and HE Security are in charge of security for the DAPL equipment at the work sites. Leighton Security is working under HE Security. 10 Code Security and Russle Group Security are in charge of drilling operations for DAPL. SRG Security is in charge of filming operations. I was told by a 10 Code employee that SRG Security and Russle Group Security are working under 10 Code Security."
Many people are aware of the activities of 'TigerSwan' in sabotaging indigenous interests during the Dakota Access protest.
Historically these companies have been known for some shady work overseas.
In fact, these companies, morphing constantly in name, have long been active in criminal cases in the U.S.
Wealthy people who can afford these companies can have virtually any criminal charges mitigated or disappeared. Because these companies operate through powerful networks, usually involving a shared history in military or similar organizations, and because they almost always have superb connections at high levels of investigative agencies, these firms are largely untouchable.
These firms are intertwined with 'official' agencies wherever they work.
"He has admitted that he was employed by a clandestine private security firm that was paid by commercial firms to monitor protesters."
The case discussed here, involving Brittanee Drexel and Shannon McConaughey is a little bit different though.
In this case the firm involved made a series of catastrophic mistakes, exposing their personnel and tactics.
