Retired Navy vet charged with kidnapping woman found dead

Eric Brian Brown, a 45-year-old veteran, was charged with Billie's kidnapping, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia said Wednesday, according to NBC News.

Billie was reported missing September 18 when she failed to show up for work at a restaurant on the Navy base in Norfolk, Virginia.

Brown faces a penalty of life in prison if convicted on the kidnapping charges.

Although investigators have not released a possible motive, witnesses told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he hated black women and referred to them as "gold diggers" who were "hypnotized by social media", court documents state.

Court documents say Brown served 21 years in the Navy and was a construction worker.

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. Police fingerprinted the auto and found a partial print, which was consistent with the vehicle having been wiped clean of fingerprints, court documents state. The auto could later be seen leaving the facility, though it was unclear who was behind the wheel.

The FBI, which investigated Billie's death, did not release how she died, where she encountered her killer or offer any motive in updates in the weeks after the probe began. The trousers had dirt on them, leading investigators to believe they were taken off of her while she was lying on the ground, court document state. When discussing the abduction and murder of Billie, Brown said he could not remember if he did anything to Billie, prosecutors said.

Furthermore, the document shows that Brown used to live in the 1500 block of Crawford Drive, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
