Man Who Nearly Confessed To Brittanee Drexel Murder Says He Almost Did So After Being Threatened And Harassed For 13 Years

Timothy Da’Shaun Taylor, a Black man who nearly confessed to killing a white woman, hoping to protect his family from death threats, is now telling his story publicly after investigators identified the real killer. DaShaun Taylor and his father Timothy Shaun Taylor were falsely accused of raping and murdering 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel in 2009 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Speaking to ABC News 4, DaShaun Taylor said his family was threatened, fired from jobs and constantly harassed while facing accusations. The family didn’t find relief until the real killer, registered sex offender Raymond Moody, was arrested in May after he confessed to the crime and led authorities to Drexel’s remains.

“You know the movie 12 Years A Slave? Living under that stuff, it felt like 13 years a slave,” DaShaun Taylor, who was 16 when Drexel went missing, told ABC News 4.
