BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Raymond Michael Brasiel, 20, is facing murder charges in the death of Amber Whited. Brasiel was already in the Glynn County jail for a double stabbing that left another man dead.

Whited was last seen on Tuesday leaving the Harley-Davidson store on Perry Lane Road where she worked as a salesperson.

Five days later, police found her body in a wooded area just off of Highway 99 and Bladen Road. According to the Glynn County Police Chief. Matt Doering, detectives were in the area conducting interviews in the case when they noticed a trail that seemed out of place.

"They came to a stop sign and noticed a beat down trail that was freshly done into a ditch and it was wider than a normal person would be walking. As if maybe somebody dragged someone into the woods," said Matt Doering, Glynn County Police Chief.
 
News of her body being discovered left her family in tears.
 
"We want to wake up and know that this is a bad dream but dreams can't be this horrible," said Martha Allen, aunt. 
 
Police scoured the area on Sunday, crime scene technicians took out bags of evidence from the woods. Chief Doering says her body may not have been there for long.
 
"I'm comfortable from my observations, that she'd been there likely since Tuesday," said Chief Doering.
 
Whited's family says they just want answers.
  
"Why? That's all I want to know," said Jeremy Lott, brother.
 
According to Chief Doering, investigators have uncovered a motive but have not released those details. 
 
Whited's body will be taken to a crime lab in Savannah on Monday to begin the autopsy and positive identification.

20 years old and in jail for stabbing a man to death and now is the "suspect" in the death of this young woman. He truly deserves whatever the law can give him. Death would be perfect. Prayers for the families and especially the little girls that will grow up without there Mama.

If he did it, this THUG needs to be shot in the head NOW...no wasting time, money on him, just to slap everyone in the face by claiming 'he's innocent'and try to get off with a lighter sentence..
