Retired Navy veteran arrested after teen's body found behind Charlotte church

Billie went missing September 18 after she never showed up for work at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story.

Brown retired from the Navy as a petty officer who worked as an information system technician. Witnesses reported seeing a vehicle like Billie's parked at various locations in Charlotte near where the body was eventually found-more than 300 miles away from where she went missing.

On Sept. 29, Billie's body was found in a wooded area behind East Stonewall AME Zion Church on Greir's Grove Road, about 300 yards from Brown's childhood home.

Brown, the man charged with her kidnapping, was described as homeless and was apparently living at "random facilities and buildings on and off the naval bases", prosecutors said. Investigators also found Billie's trousers and a shoe inside the auto. Inside, agents found Billie's trousers covered in dirt and debris. She was on her back and the mummification process had already started.

The, which measures the greenback's strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was up 0.18% at 94.80 by 02:10 a.m.

There was also plastic sheeting and a glove near her body. When discussing the abduction and murder of Billie, Brown said he could not remember if he did anything to Billie, prosecutors said. Video from a separate gate appeared to show a different person driving the auto off the base. Several agencies were involved with the investigation of this case including the FBI, Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department and the Virginia Beach Police Department.

He remained in custody at the Virginia Beach Correctional Center and never posted bond, although he was eligible.

While in jail, Brown told another inmate that he'd committed serious crimes. "Sometimes it makes you do things that are unexplainable", court documents allege.

The U.S. attorney's office in Norfolk, Virginia, announced a charge of kidnapping against Eric Brian Brown, 45, a 21-year Navy veteran.
