Police seek links to three crimes

Jul 30, 2010 10:49:00 AM - thestate.com

Investigators are exploring possible links between the disappearance of a New York teen in Myrtle Beach, an attempted abduction there and a 12-year unsolved murder from Charleston County, authorities said Thursday.

Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon said his detectives are looking to see whether the 1998 killing of Shannon McConaughey is related to the 2009 disappearance of Brittanee Drexel in Myrtle Beach and last week’s attempted kidnapping of a young woman, also in Myrtle Beach.

Cannon said the three cases bear some similarities, and authorities would be remiss not to look into possible connections. But he stressed that no definitive ties have been found.

“It’s just a natural evolution when you’re dealing with cases like these,” he said. “If you’ve got something that suggests a pattern of similar incidents, it is the responsible thing to do to look at those.”
