More arrests expected in child sex ring

Published: Wednesday, October 23, 2013, 6:21 PM CDT

--MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Police said more arrests may be made in a a child sex abuse investigation that stretches through at least two counties.

On October 22, four suspects were charged by Mobile Police alone in connection with the investigation.

"We've found additional victims, and we have four suspects that have picked up 13 additional felonies," said Sgt. Chris Levy.

Mobile Police said there are multiple victims, all juveniles. Levy gave a few details of the investigation that has been going on since before May of 2012. The child sex ring investigation started in Baldwin County and quickly crossed over into Mobile County. Levy talked about the latest arrests.

"This deal, many people probably assume this was back when we made the last arrest but we're not finding that. We're finding more victims as we continue on," Levy said.

Mobile Police arrested Wendy Wood Holland, Mendy Kent, Dustin Kent, and charged William "Billy" Brownlee who was already in metro jail. Many of their family members and friends have been arrested as well.

--The Mobile County Sheriff's Office arrested James Cumbaa and have a warrant out for Nelton "Butch" Morgan.

11th person in alleged sex ring arrested

By Andrew Perez | Published: Monday, November 4, 2013

BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) - An eleventh person has been arrested in connection to a child sex investigation that crosses several county and state lines.

Jennifer Gonzales Moore, 32, now joins a long list of sex abuse suspects after she was arrested by the Baldwin County Sheriffs Office for production of child pornography and second degree sex abuse.

Investigators would not elaborate on the evidence against Moore, who is from Magnolia Springs.

While FOX10 News has learned Moore is an active assistant with the local cub scouts, authorities said her charges stem from child victims connected to a sex ring investigation involving family and friends of missing mother Brittney Wood.

Jennifer Moore is the best friend of Wendy Wood Holland. Wendy is Brittney's biological aunt and the wife of Donald Holland, the alleged leader of the sex ring. WWH and Jennifer Moore are the two people who found Donald Holland with an alleged self inflicted gun wound. Donnie was not suppose to be around his children and had been staying in a home that friend Jennifer Moore owned in Styx River. The same place where uncle Donnie and Brittney went the night she disappeared.

Prosecution alleges friends, family of Brittney Wood 'passed their children back and forth' for sex



Six people accused of sexual abuse of children were in Circuit Court Judge Jay York's courtroom on Thursday. (Michael Dumas/mdumas@al.com)

By Michael Dumas | mdumas@al.com

MOBILE, Alabama -- Six defendants in what prosecutors allege is an inter-family ring involving children being "shared" for sex were in front of District Court Judge Jay York on Thursday for preliminary hearings.

The cases involving each of the six defendants, related by either blood or fellowship to missing Mobile woman Brittney Wood, were bound over to a grand jury by the judge during a proceeding that required two tables be placed together to accommodate all of the accused. The respective attorneys for William Brownlee, Dustin Kent, Mendy Kent, Wendy Holland, Nelton Morgan and James Cumbaa had to stand behind and beside them in the cramped space.

During testimony, investigators recounted the allegations of sex abuse from two underage victims -- one boy, one girl -- which involved individual and group acts between the children and the defendants. According to the testimony, the earliest of the alleged abuses came when the boy was as young as 7 and the girl as young as 9, and in cases of some defendants continued for several years.

Looking at the allegations against the family members and I have to wonder...

Did any of this family attempt to molest Brittany's daughter?
Could they have taken her and Brittany went to demand the return of her daughter?
Could they have molested the child and Brittany threatened to turn them in ?

Could this be why Brittany "disappeared"?
She had moral conscience and a desire to protect her own child?

Freckles, that has been my sincere suspicion throughout this case. It would make sense, as Brittany's mother, who is admittedly probably not the cleanest slate in the schoolhouse, seems to be very genuine and candid about even the actions of her own family members in order to try to discover what has happened to Brittany. It makes me wonder if Brittany's mother, maybe not so much ignored, but wasn't emotionally able to see what was occurring until she observed danger to her granddaughter. It also makes me think that Brittany was NOT offered up for "sharing" as a child, since she was strong enough to try to pull her daughter away from it (if this scenario is what happened). That type of abuse tends to render young people emotionally weak and is why the abuse goes unchecked for so long. If this scenario is correct, and Brittany was not part of the horrific "sharing" between members of this family, then it would stand to reason that her mother might not have been able to comprehend what was taking place until the threat came to her own (one generation removed).

I don't know all the details, but this case gets more and more tangled as the arrests continue to be made. I hope so much that Brittany is alive and her child has not been abused, but I suspect that what happened is that she was propositioned to include her child in the ring of abuse, and being the protective mother she is described to be, refused. Either an argument ensued that resulted in her being killed in the heat of anger (which would fully explain the uncle realizing what he'd done and killing himself), or she threatened to expose the abuses and offer up evidence (since the other parents who could have testified, "yes, they actually asked me to be involved..." were actually a part of it and weren't likely to incriminate themselves) and he panicked and killed her...which also explains the reason he may have then recognized what he'd done and killed himself.

Sex ring suspects admit watching sex abuse

Brittney Wood listed as a victim

By Andrew Perez | Updated: Tues, November 19, 2013

---MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - FOX10 News has uncovered exclusive new details in an alleged child sex ring involving family and friends of missing mother Brittney Wood.

Authorities executed a search warrant at the home of suspect Wendy Holland Thursday, November 14, after two of the eleven suspects confessed to seeing numerous child porn videos on Holland’s home computer.

--- The search warrant also says that Brittney’s uncle, Dustin Kent and family friend William Brownlee have admitted to seeing videos of several child victims engaging in sex acts.

It reads, “Donald Holland showed them videos on his computer of (the victim) and Brittney Wood, at various ages all under 13, engaging in sexual activity with different adults.”

Soprano1 - I wish you were correct in thinking Brittney was not a victim. Her mother Chessie had stated LE told her Britt was a victim. Until now all we had was Chessie's word. Now LE has indicated Britt was a victim. According to Brittney's stepmother, Brittney gave up custody of her daughter in August of 2011. I personally believe Brittney did this to protect her daughter. I had never considered the theory regarding her daughter. It is something I don't want to think about a 2 yo, it is too sick.

Do you know if Brittney's dau is with any family member?
I had read of the g.mother, Chessie, stating she wanted Brittney back home because Brittney's dau needed her mother so much....That lead me to believe maybe Chessie had custody of the little one... and that gave me the shivers.

I dunno what happened. I speculate Brittaney confronted Donnie re the past abuse, perhaps of herself? She probably told him to never, ever approach her dau because she would bust him for what he had done to her ? and maybe others.  

This entire family is grossly sick.
It has trickled down from the aunts/uncles/mother to her own brother.
Anyone know what happened to her father? Is he one of the sickos?

Investigators: child sex-abuse investigation and Brittney Wood 'all connected'

By Michael Dumas | mdumas@al.com
on November 19, 2013 at 5:00 PM, updated November 19, 2013 at 5:20 PM



Wendy Wood Holland is accused of second-degree sodomy in Mobile County

MOBILE, Alabama – On the same day she was in court on sex-abuse charges, investigators with a search warrant took computer equipment that could contain pertinent evidence from Wendy Wood Holland’s home in Irvington, according to the Mobile Police Department.

Holland is the maternal aunt of missing mother Brittney Wood, and for the first time since Wood’s disappearance in May 2012, Mobile County investigators are saying the 20-year-old and sex-abuse charges against several of her family members and their friends are linked.

~Snipped~

“They all have something to do with Brittany Wood, maybe not her disappearance but they’re all connected,” said Mobile County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Lori Myles about the Mobile County cases. “It’s just constant.”

And the search warrant, as well as possible pornographic materials contained on them, could provide the first evidence of that connection between Wood and sex abuse.

According to a report by Fox10 News, the search warrant cites a child victim who said “numerous instances of sex abuse” were recorded by Wendy Holland and/or her husband, Donnie Holland, using “webcams, digital cameras, and cell phones.

Donnie Holland killed himself shortly after Brittney Wood went missing, and is thought to be the last person to see her.

Hi Freckles!

Brittney's daughter is with the father Andy. They live with his grandparents. She has a very stable home and is well taken care of. Chessie does not have custody nor visitation. Payton does visit and has a relationship with Brittney's father Wally and stepmom Stephanie. Here is an article/video titled Brittney Woods's two tear old doing fine.

http://www.fox10tv.com/news/brittney-woods-2-year-old-doing-fine

Brittney's father is not part of this sick group. Her father and stepmom are very much involved in searching for Brittney. Her stepmom is a verified insider at WS. She is a very nice lady and answers as many questions as she can. Stephanie runs the Facebook page The Hometown search for Brittney Wood.

The Hometown search for Brittney Wood
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Hometown-search-for-Brittney-Wood/451298481547844

This is great news that LE is now saying Brittney's disappearance and the sex abuse is related. I hope we are closer to bringing Brittney home.

Thank you, Lash. I so had hoped there was some sanity in Brittany's life and for her daughter. Just a ray of hope in the midst of so much evil. Best for Brittany's father and stepmother...

Do you know if Brittany's brother has the same father and step?

On 10/29/2013, Chessie Wood accused her sister Wendy Wood Holland of knowing where Brittany is:

Chessie Wood said she feels like her sister knows something she isn't sharing about Brittney. "I begged you, Wendy, to tell me where my daughter is, and you won't," Wood said. "Please tell me where my daughter is." Although Brittney Wood spent time with her uncle Donnie Holland occasionally, her mother said she believes her daughter went to see him for a different reason on May 30, 2012. "I believe my daughter went to confront him about other victims and it backfired on her," Chessie Wood said. "She was a fireball and she found out some information that she couldn't handle. "I believe Donnie killed my daughter over the sex crimes." wrote:
Wendy was married to Donnie Holland who killed himself over the investigation.

Here is a timeline:

2012: Family members last see Brittney Wood, the mother of a 2-year-old who was then 19. She says she's going to the Styx River area in Baldwin County to visit her uncle, Donald "Donnie" Holland. He committed suicide on June 1.

Brittney has 2 brothers, Derek and TJ. They have the same father as Brittney. As you know, Derek is currently in jail facing charges. Derek has said he was abused by this sex ring and taught to do things to others. TJ has said he was never sexually abused.

Chessie has two toddlers by Paul, the man she is currently with. IIRC, Chessie was pregnant with one of the toddlers when Britt was pregnant with Payton.

Letters point to motive for murder

Authorities to also reopen suicide investigation

By Andrew Perez

Updated: Thursday, November 21, 2013, 8:00 PM CST
Published: Thursday, November 21, 2013, 8:00 PM CST



MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Sources confirm to FOX10 News authorities are taking a second look at the apparent suicide of Donald Holland, Sr. He is the uncle and last person seen with Brittney Wood, who disappeared May 30, 2012.

Authorities are revisiting evidence to determine exactly how he died.

The news comes just days after letters to and from sex abuse suspect Wendy Holland surfaced, indicating that Brittney Wood may have known her life was in danger before she went missing.

In a letter obtained by FOX10 news apparently written to Donald’s wife, the sender writes “Brittney wrote a letter with a lot of evidence on it pertaining to Jennifer, her, you, Mendy, and (child victim). She said if anything happened to her to give it to the police.”

Investigators: child sex-abuse investigation and Brittney Wood 'all connected'

On Nov. 14, Wendy Holland, William Brownlee, Dustin Kent, Mendy Kent, Nelton Morgan and James Cumbaa were in Mobile County District Court for preliminary hearings on charges that include rape and sodomy. Randall "Scott" Wood and Brittney Wood's mother, Chessie Wood, also stand accused of sex-abuse charges involving minors. Many of those charged in Mobile County face similar charges in Baldwin County, as does Brittney Wood's brother, Derek Wood. wrote:

Freckles, you're welcome!

TJ is the youngest of the three. Both brothers were incarcerated at the time Brittney disappeared. Derek was in the local jail on unrelated charges and TJ was in some type of juvenile detention center.

All I can say is wow to the above news! I have always been suspicious of Donnie's suicide. He allegedly shot himself with Brittney's gun. It doesn't appear a thorough investigation was ever completed. He was a pedophile about to meet with authorities in a few hours. I believe LE took Wendy's word that it was a suicide. It doesn't appear GSR was ever tested. Donnie did not die right away. He was on life support for a few days. I personally don't believe he committed suicide. It was a 25 caliber handgun. Donnie had rifles he could have used, yet instead he used a gun with a known history of penetration problems. The 2 people who allegedly found him imo have motive, Wendy and Jennifer.

Lash-
Who would have the  most to lose if he was still alive?
He might talk... and some others could be implicated.
I am starting to wonder if some of the "female folk" are the ones who may have plotted against Brittaney.

What did he have to lose?
He was already a known pedophile.
It was the others who were not yet exposed...
They had the most to lose, IMO.

Guys can wink, nod, state, "boys will be boys..." or she wanted it...
Females can not do that.
IF they were to be arrested, which has happened, they would lose the most important aspect of their lives:
SECURITY.
Further, if males are harsh on male predators in prison, can you imagine how it would be for a female, a mother of children who is sposed to be nurturing?

Re: Brittney Wood -- Missing 6/2/12

Post by Lash on Wed Nov 27, 2013 9:01 am

Brittney's case has always reminded me of Ali Lemmon. Ali never had a chance and I feel the same about Brittney. They were both surrounded by generational sin. Like Ali, Britt was also a victim before they became missing person cases. Britt was raped at age 9 by her grandmothers boyfriend. Grandma, who lives with Chessie, to this day sends money to the rapist in prison. There is something wrong with the whole picture, just wrong in so many ways! W/o going into great detail, in Britt's case there was significant evidence to prove she was telling the truth. The judge gave the SOB a life sentence.

Chessie, Randall, Mendy and Wendy are siblings. All have been charged with sexually abusing children. Others charged or accused are Dustin Kent, Mendy's husband. Donnie Holland, deceased, was Wendy's husband. Donnie Jr, Donnie Holland's son. Derek Wood, Britt's brother and 3 or 4 more family friends. Wendy's BFF Jennifer Moore, whose family owned the Styx River property. Jennifer's father, now deceased, as an interesting background. I think the total is now 12 if you include Donnie Holland. 4 victims, some as young as 3 yo.

In my opinion, Donnie was not the ring leader. I personally believe his wife Wendy controlled most of what happened. He may have introduced her to the deviance, but I believe a time came where she became the ring leader. It has been alleged in MSM the twins Wendy and Mendy had an incestious relationship with each other and their spouses. It appears the investigation began in February 2012 when Randall Wood went to LE to report the abuse. Randall was later one of the first arrested along with Dustin. LE reported one of them confessed. I believe it was Randall. I think he was playing CYA at the time he reported the abuse.

Since the letters to and from Wendy have surfaced, it seems all of these scums knew what was about to come. It also appears the letter was written on prison stationery. Some have concluded the letters were written to Wendy by her brother Randall while he was incarcerated. The letter was warning Wendy of a letter Brittney had written and given to someone for safe keeping. Wendy writes back in a letter basically saying Britt's handwriting cannot be analyzed. That is very eerie. It sounds as if she knows Brittney is dead.

Sorry for the long answer to your question. I personally don't believe Donnie agreed with killing Brittney. Hence the reason I believe he was murdered and did not commit suicide. I happen to agree with you, I believe the women in this case have a lot to lose. In my opinion Wendy and Jennifer have the most motive, along with Randall. I believe Wendy is the ring leader. Jennifer was/is a boy scout den leader. Randall has/had a military career and seems to be the most educated out of the bunch. Brittney was once a survivor who testified against her rapist only to be victimized again. I'm not sure Brittney knew others were being abused. Including her brother Derek. She may have believed she was protecting others until she received the Facebook message from another victim just days before she disappeared. This may have been when the storm hit.

Mother of missing Brittney Wood makes shocking plea to her own SISTER to reveal where body of teen who was 'about to expose family pedophile ring' is buried

PUBLISHED: 13:15 EST, 9 December 2013 | UPDATED: 17:39 EST, 9 December 2013

The mother of missing Brittney Wood today made an extraordinary appeal to her own sister to tell her where her dead daughter's body is hidden.

Chessie Wood, who is linked to an alleged child sex ring involving 11 people - all members or friends of her Alabama family - told MailOnline that she accepts her 19-year-old daughter is dead almost 18 months after she disappeared from home.

Wood called on the one person who could reveal her daughter's grim fate to 'end the lies'.

I don't think Brittney was fortunate enough to escape the final "death wish" reach of this twisted family.  The numerous participating evil family members have made the reports on this sick bunch sound like a novel written for sexual thrills.  With the exception of Brittney's child and the child's father, have any of the victims managed to escape this madness to live normal lives? Evil isn't a strong enough word to depict these sub-humans. They belong locked up from society forever. I wouldn't believe a word spoken by Brittney's mother, who is playing CYA - and lie detector tests are not fool-proof. I think a practiced liar can beat these tests, especially if the questions are reviewed and approved by the subject beforehand.

Man charged in Wood family child sex investigation pleads guilty

July 31, 2014 at 1:18 PM, updated August 01, 2014 at 3:35 PM

BAY MINETTE, Alabama — A man whose family is suspected of having sex with underage relatives pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of second-degree rape and second-degree sodomy.

Dustin Kent, 38, of Mobile, will be sentenced Oct. 23 during a hearing before Circuit Court Judge Jody Bishop at the Baldwin County Courthouse in Bay Minette.

The charges Kent pleaded guilty to stemmed from him having sex with a girl who was between 12 and 16 years old, Assistant District Attorney Teresa Heinz said.

Dustin Kent, uncle to Brittney Wood, pleads guilty to rape and sodomy

By Kati Weis
Published: July 31, 2014, 11:01 amUpdated: July 31, 2014, 5:49 pm

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (WALA) – Dustin Kent pleaded guilty to charges of rape and sodomy in a Baldwin County courtroom Thursday morning, July 31.

FOX10 News Reporter Kati Weis was in the courtroom for Kent’s hearing. Teresa Heinz with the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office told her this hearing resolved the sex charges Kent was facing in Baldwin County.

Kent entered a plea deal that allowed him to drop charges of incest by pleading guilty to rape in the second degree and sodomy in the second degree.

Now, Kent must face a judge for sentencing in October, where he could be sentenced for anywhere between two to 20 years in prison.

Snip- Beck said Thursday that his client will most likely file a similar plea deal in Mobile county, as he did in Baldwin County.

“At this point, we would anticipate that Mr. Kent would be doing the same thing in Mobile County as he’s done here today,” said Beck after the plea deal hearing at the Baldwin County Courthouse.

The prosecution said a plea deal is important, because by Kent pleading guilty, he is further protecting the victims he violated.

“By his actions, and taking responsibility, he is now not putting a child on the stand to have to tell her story,” said Heinz. “That is a critical component for us and any prosecution that we handle, is preventing any more trauma to our victims.”

I have a feeling Dustin Kent will cooperate because there are multiple victims, witnesses. However, I believe the prosecution is willing to offer plea deals to minimize the trauma the court cases could create for the victims. Derek Wood, Brittney's older brother has been released. He was originally denied YO status but in July the decision was overturned. Derek has alleged he was a victim turned perp. I believe the prosecution has several witnesses to the abuse this sick family perpetrated.


Youthful offender status granted to Derek Wood

Published: July 1, 2014

Snip- We may never know what the future holds for Derek Wood now that he’s been granted youthful offender status. Judge Bishop’s courtroom was only open to Wood’s family and attorneys and all results of the hearing and any sentence will remain sealed to the public. Prosecutors could not release any details of what happened in that courtroom, but said there will be more to come.


Snip - Derek opened up to Fox 10 News in an exclusive phone interview from the Baldwin County Jail last April. He told us that he was sexually abused by his uncle, Donnie Holland from the time he was seven and it continued for years. A victim himself and now a sex abuse suspect, through all of his legal battles he said his missing sister is always on his mind.

Thomas Pilcher, Brownlee's attorney, said after he arrived in court his client told him that he had decided not to take the offer because he "shouldn't go to jail for doing something he hasn't done."

Man connected to Brittney Wood's family convicted of child sex abuse charges in 20 minutes
October 16, 2014

BAY MINETTE, Alabama -- A 12-member Baldwin County jury took about 20 minutes Thursday to convict an Eight Mile man of sexually abusing a girl who was offered up for sex by a relative.

William "Billy" Brownlee, 50, is one of 11 people who have been arrested in a child sex abuse investigation that started in 2012. Arrests have been made in Baldwin and Mobile counties. The men and women charged are relatives of missing Mobile County woman Brittney Wood or are friends of her family members.

Brownlee, 50, was found guilty of second-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse. He was convicted of having sex with the girl when she was 12 or 13 years old.

The victim, now 16 years old, is a relative of Wood. Brownlee is a family friend.

BAY MINETTE, Alabama -- A 16-year-old girl described in graphic detail for a jury Wednesday how she was sexually abused by relatives and a friend of her family.

"It was normal," the girl said during her nearly hour-long testimony Wednesday morning. "They (did) it all the time and a lot. I thought that it was normal."

The victim testified in the trial of William "Billy" Brownlee, 50, of Eight Mile. Brownlee, a friend of the girl's family, is accused of sexually abusing her.

Thanks for staying with this, Lash.

".... Part of Brownlee's defense is that he was forced by a relative of the girl to have sex with her. He also alleged in a video played during the trial that he was raped by members of the girl's family when he was a child.

"I think it was compelling stuff to tell you the truth," Thomas Pilcher, Brownlee's attorney, said of the video."He obviously broke down in there when he was talking about the things that happened in his childhood."

Brownlee was indicted in 2012 on second-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse charges. He is accused of performing a sex act on the girl when she was 12 or 13 years old and while one of her relatives watched. ....."

@contented1 Well, they had to walk down two long halls, go upstairs, be seated, take roll call for the official record, order a cup of coffee, get served the coffee, stir in the sugar and cream, vote on who would be the jury spokesman if the jury foreman chose not to read their decision, each had to voice their vote out loud for the record, sign the statement that their vote was accurate, go back down the stairs, go down those two long halls and re-enter the courtroom and be seated.


Yep, 20 minutes is about right.

October 16, 2014

BAY MINETTE, Alabama -- A 12-member Baldwin County jury took about 20 minutes Thursday to convict an Eight Mile man of sexually abusing a girl who was offered up for sex by a relative.

William "Billy" Brownlee, 50, is one of 11 people who have been arrested in a child sex abuse investigation that  started in 2012. Arrests have been made in Baldwin and Mobile counties. The men and women charged are relatives of missing Mobile County woman Brittney Wood or are friends of her family members.

Brownlee, 50, was found guilty of second-degree sodomy and second-degree sexual abuse. He was convicted of having sex with the girl when she was 12 or 13 years old.

The victim, now 16 years old, is a relative of Wood. Brownlee is a family friend.

See my time line post of Nov 20, 2013. Too long to repost.

"...Aug. 16, 2012: Derek Wood, Scott Holland and Brownlee appear in a Baldwin County Circuit Court for a hearing in their sex abuse charges. A BCSO sheriff's investigator testifies a girl told deputies in January 2011 -- when the girl was 12 years old -- that the three men had sex with her. ...."

With so many perps from the family AND the community, so many child victims....
how is it a "surprise" to anyone in that community?
How is LE weren't on this years ago?
Did LE just do the old boy wink, shrug, and look the other way?
No

I have wondered how it is the town, the social communities, neighbors, etc., did not hear rumors, etc., re this family. People talk! Kids talk! Now I see this in print:

How did family of 'pedophiles' operate unnoticed for years? Social services under fire for not seeing 'ring of abuse' from eight members of the same Alabama family going back six years

Authorities describe it as a dark, twisted tale of perversion in the family
Brittney Wood, went missing in May 2012 and is presumed dead
She first accused Ronald Robertson of rape in 2003 when she was 11
The investigation mushroomed after she disappeared
Was with her uncle Donnie Holland, a suspect, the night she vanished
Eight of Woods' adult relatives and three family friends have been charged with dozens of felonies as alleged members of an incestuous ring
They include her mother, two uncles, two aunts and his older brother
Questions persist as to why child welfare services didn't respond to multiple complaints of sexual assault in the family going back six years


"....Chessie Wood, accused of having sex with a young female relative, said she had no idea what was going on in the family until after her daughter's disappearance....."


"....The case is so big officials don't know exactly how many kids inside and outside the family might have been victimized; estimates range from 11 to 16 children who were as young as 3 or 4 when they were first molested or made to watch adult relatives during drug-fueled orgies. The children of the suspects have all been placed in foster care or with relatives who weren't involved in the crimes....."




"....Authorities believe group sex and child sexual abuse went on for three generations in two families that merged when Holland married Wendy Wood, Chessie Woods' sister.

'Donnie was the manager. He'd say, `I've got this child and this adult, come on over,'' said Mobile County Assistant District Attorney Nicki Patterson.

Brittney Wood, meanwhile, led a life that was troubled long before folks on the Alabama coast came to know her smile because of missing persons fliers posted in store windows and shared on social media.

The single mother of a daughter born when she was 17, Wood was molested as a child by a step-grandfather who went to prison for the crime, said Patterson.

Before she went missing, Patterson said, Wood was using drugs and had a gun for personal protection while bouncing between relatives' homes; others often cared for her daughter......"

Key figure in sex ring silent about missing victim
 
By JAY REEVES, Associated Press
Updated 12:11 pm, Friday, January 16, 2015



FILE - In this Dec. 10, 2014 file photo, Wendy Wood Holland, 35, appears in the Baldwin County Circuit Court in Bay Minette, Ala. A judge on Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015, sentenced Holland to 219 years in prison for her role in an incestuous sex ring accused of molesting children for years. Another defendant, William Brownlee, got a 20-year prison sentence. Authorities say the two were part of a group of relatives and friends who sexually abused multiple children in Baldwin and Mobile counties. (Brynn Anderson, AP / AP)

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) — A woman sentenced to 219 years in prison after being convicted as part of a group of relatives and friends who sexually abused children for years isn't saying whether she knows anything about the whereabouts of a victim whose disappearance helped break open the case.

Wendy Holland, 35, has repeatedly refused to discuss the May 2012 disappearance of 19-year-old Brittney Wood, a prosecutor said. She again refused before being sentenced to what amounts to a life term on charges including sex abuse on Thursday.

The refusal frustrates both family members and authorities trying to find Wood, who is Holland's niece. Holland and 10 other relatives and friends were arrested on multiple sex charges after the teen vanished.
