Retired Navy vet charged with kidnapping woman found dead

Eric B. Brown was arrested in relation to the disappearance and death of Ashanti Billie

Her body was found more than 380 miles away, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to court documents, Brown, who spent 21 years in the Navy, worked as a day laborer and participated in the construction of the Blimpie this past summer.

A U.S. district court criminal complaint shows that investigators believe Billie was kidnapped on the Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek.

Eddie Jones picked all 10 of England's 2017 Lions in his 26-man squad on Tuesday, including Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje. Tuilaepa said there was no money to pay for player insurance and the head coach's salary.

Billie went missing September 18 after she never showed up for work at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story. This is about 300 yards from where Billie's body was found.

Brown has been charged with kidnapping and faces a maximum penalty of life in prison, if convicted.

A Navy veteran was charged Wednesday with kidnapping a 19-year-old who was last seen on a Naval base in Virginia. Witnesses reported seeing a auto 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. Later in the day, her auto was seen on video leaving Gate 1, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was unclear who was driving it. Billie's coworkers say Brown would flirt with Billie and make sexual remarks toward her. He had access to area bases, and investigators believe he is homeless and lived - at least partially - on the Navy bases. Inside, agents found Billie's trousers covered in dirt and debris. Investigators also found Billie's trousers and a shoe inside the auto. When discussing the abduction and murder of Billie, Brown said he could not remember if he did anything to Billie, prosecutors said. She also did not show up for her scheduled college classes near the Virginia Beach Town Center.
