New Arrests Deepens Myster of Missing Teen Brittney Wood
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) More family members of missing teen mom Brittney Wood are behind bars.
Seven people arrested face charges related to an ongoing child sex abuse investigation, some have faced similar charges before.
Wood went missing back in may of 2012.
Pat Guyton is director of the Mobile Child Advocacy Center and thought he'd seen everything.But he says Tuesday night's roundup of friends and members of the Brittney Wood family takes this case to a new level.
"We have never had a case like this where there are so many alleged perpetrators within the same family," he said, "molesting, allegedly, so many children within the extended family grouping."
Tuesday night's string of arrests stem from new evidence from a new juvenile witness. The charges range from sodomy to incest and beyond.
Each person arrested shares another thing in common, each was either friends with or a relative of the missing teen Brittney Wood.
The arrests once again begs the question, where is Brittney Wood?
"I believe there are people walking around today who know what happened to Brittney Wood," said Guyton. "I don't know who they are, but I believe the circumstances surround her death. I believe there are people walking around today who know what happened to Brittney Wood and have a good idea what happened to Brittney Wood. They may not have been involved but they have a good idea what happened to her. And while this case is not directly involved with the Brittney Wood case, there are certainly some indirect indications that lead us back to the disappearance of Brittney Wood."
