Police are seeking ties between the disappearance of a New York teen last seen in South Carolina and two other cases.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports Friday Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon says detectives are comparing the 1998 killing of Shannon McConaughey to the 2009 disappearance of Brittanee Drexel.
Drexel was 17 years old when she was last seen leaving a Myrtle Beach hotel.
No arrests have been made. But on Wednesday, Timothy Shaun Taylor was arrested and accused of trying to kidnap another woman near the spot where Drexel disappeared.
Taylor's brother, Randall Keith Taylor, was charged in McConaughey's case, but those charges were later dismissed. McConaughey's body was found in Charleston County, near the last location of Drexel's cell phone signal.
