Murdered teenager Brittannee Drexel sent her boyfriend a chilling text message before she vanished more than a decade ago, it's been revealed.
The 17-year-old was last seen on April 25, 2009 walking between hotels in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where she had been on a spring break trip with a group of friends, without telling her parents.
She had texted her friends throughout the day, new court documents obtained by WCSC reveal, reaching out to her boyfriend in her hometown of Rochester, New York to complain about something less than one hour before she was reported missing.
'I'll tell you later when you call me,' Drexel told her boyfriend, adding: 'I'm so heated.'
Drexel later told him she was planning to just stay in that night and pack before going to sleep.
But that same night, Raymond Moody — a known sex offender — kidnapped and raped the teenager before he killed her. Drexel's remains were only discovered earlier this year in Harmony Township, South Carolina after the 62-year-old finally confessed to the crime.
Moody has since been sentenced to life in prison.
