Blue Water Resort
Brittanee Drexel left the Blue Water Resort at 8.43 p.m. and started walking north along Ocean Boulevard. She had a 1.4-mile journey back to her hotel.
It is unclear where exactly she encountered Raymond Moody and Angel Vause.
Cell tower records and surveillance footage from the corner of Ocean Boulevard and 11th Avenue indicated that she was picked up roughly halfway to her destination. Cellular analysis by the FBI showed that her phone went from a walking speed to a driving speed at 9.06 p.m.

The murder took place at the Pole Yard public boat landing. Moody knew the area, as he liked to fish at a small campsite in the woods near the parking lot.
At some point during the evening, Moody's girlfriend, Angel Vause, got in the couple's Ford Explorer and drove away, as she needed to meet her son and give him a set of keys.
Cell tower data and phone records corroborated her story that she left the campsite for a period of time.
While Vause was gone, Moody raped Drexel and strangled her to death. Afterwards, he wrapped her body in a blanket and hid it in some nearby bushes.
When Vause returned from her errand, she asked Moody where Drexel had gone. In response, he said that some of her friends had come by and picked her up.
Although the police believe that Vause was not present during the killing, she did lie to detectives, as she claimed in earlier interviews that she had never met Drexel.
