FRANKLIN Co., Va. (WSET) - Twelve warrants in Brittany Freeny's murder became unsealed and reveal more into her disappearance and death.

Freeny was reported missing on May 2 in Roanoke after being last seen in the evening of May 1.

According to one of the unsealed warrants, Freeny's sister Banea Kasey told investigators she sold Freeny cocaine on the evening of her disappearance.

The warrant says Kasey then saw Freeny get into Lamarre Camper's van.

One of the unsealed warrants reveals the van was purchased at Bob's Car Corner in Roanoke and the GPS data was property of the dealer's until the loan against the vehicle was paid.

Law enforcement requested that information to aid in the investigation.

Her body was found in the woods of Franklin County on May 3.

The Medical Examiner ruled her cause of death to be blunt force trauma to her person.

Camper was found by police in Raleigh, North Carolina on May 3 and was charged with burning the van Freeny was last seen in.

When police found Camper, he was walking along the street and had a swollen hand.

Camper is charged with first degree murder and heads to trial in October.

Some of the warrants reveal that both Brittany Freeny and Lamarre Camper had two Facebook profiles.

The investigator wrote "through my training and experience I know that people commonly use Facebook to message each other concerning drug deals."

Those profiles along with that of Brittany's sister Banea, Porsha Ball, and Jamilla Chatmon were searched for any and all data relating to Freeny's disappearance and murder.

Other electronics that were searched include Camper's phone and tablet, which he says was used to communicate with Freeny.

Three warrants were issued for DNA samples for Camper's young children. Commonwealth's Attorney A.J. Dudley wouldn't say why DNA was taken from the three young children. An attorney not affiliated with this case says it could be to perform an exclusion on the DNA found at the site without the need to get a search warrant on Camper.

The Commonwealth's Attorney was unable to confirm why their DNA was taken.

Police also searched a residence in the 2300 block of Clifton Avenue.

A plastic straw, red notebook folder, broken broom handle, black bag with zipper, plastic shopping bag with papers, and a white basket with clothes and other items were all taken from that residence.

This is a developing story, stay with ABC 13 for updates.

Some information in the warrants has been redacted to protect the privacy of those connected to the case.
