GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - WMBF News continues to request documents related to the arrest of Raymond Moody and has been denied.

Moody, 62, is charged with obstruction of justice and was arrested on Wednesday.

According to South Carolina Law Enforcement Division records, the date Moody allegedly committed the obstruction of justice is April 25, 2009.

A Georgetown County magistrate set a $100,000 bond for Moody at 4 p.m. Wednesday at the detention center, according to the sheriff’s office.

WMBF News has checked the Georgetown County public index records to gather more information on Moody’s arrest but it’s been more than a week since his arrest and it’s still not listed on the site.

Moody is a registered Adult Tier III Offender who was convicted in 1983 of rape by force, kidnapping and lewd act on a child under 14, among other charges, according to the sheriff’s office.

He was named a person of interest in the Drexel case in 2012.

At this time, we have no confirmation that this arrest is connected to the current investigation happening with the Brittanee Drexel case.

WMBF tried to obtain the documents from the magistrate’s office and was referred to the Georgetown County Sheriff’s office. A spokesperson for the office told our reporter that he could not provide a reason for not providing documents related to Moody, as a reason would be “too revealing.”

WMBF has learned from a source that investigators have been working from dawn to dusk in Georgetown County.

Multiple agencies are working on this case including the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, and the FBI.
