|Does Tammy Moorer know something about the disappearance of Heather Elvis?|
Question for Analysis: Does Tammy Moorer possess guilty knowledge, from her husband, Sidney, about the disappearance of Heather Elvis, with whom her husband had an affair?
I have taken her statement posted, below, in italics, with plain text showing the analysis.
"Well Sidney cheated" begins her posted statement. Where someone begins the statement is often the most important part of the statement, and may even be the reason for the statement.
"Well" is sometimes used when one has been debating within oneself whether or not to make a reluctant admission. In speech, it is a pause, calling our attention to the need to think. In writing, it can be considered the same thing. "Well, I finally decided..." shows the pause of, perhaps, internal debate.
"Sidney" is not given status of "my husband" which indicates a poor relationship. A complete social introduction would be "my husband Sidney..." and would indicate a good relationship. In context, the negative relationship is appropriate.
Please note that in order to "cheat" rules must be broken, or "cheated" against. This stands in opposition to the "open marriage" she reported later.
"psycho whore" is her first introduction of Heather Elvis.
This is her choice of words to describe the "other woman" of whom her husband had a relationship with. This is an interesting choice of words. First, "psycho" indicates negative mental health, while "whore" is used to describe a woman of immodesty. Why would one who claims to be in an "open marriage" call the young missing woman a "whore"? We look for answers within the statement itself.
"who has since went missing" and not "is missing." "Went" is past tense. "Is missing" is present tense and shows its focus on the present distress: a young woman missing. The subject is in the past, which makes sense since she began with Sidney cheated" Her concern is not the welfare of the young woman, or assisting in her recovery.
"her crazy daddy" is not her "distraught father"
"is threatening" is present tense. Note she does not quote what he said. What if he said, "What would you be like if your child was missing?" and she turned this into a "threat." Threats are often capable of causing an emotional response triggering a quote.
"therefore, making Sidney stupid." Note that Sidney cheating on her does not make him stupid, but the reaction from Terry Elvis, desperate to find his daughter, has made Sidney "stupid." Is this because he chose the wrong woman to cheat with? Is this because the woman he cheated with went missing? Has Sidney told her the truth about their relationship?
Has Sidney told her the truth about his last contact with Heather Elvis?
"this girl" is now her second choice of words after "pyscho whore" she is now "this" (close) and "girl", not "woman."
"naming him!" uses an exclamation point. Note what triggers an exclamation point and what does not.
Heather Elvis going missing does not trigger exclamation point.
Sidney cheating does not trigger exclamation point. That he is "named" is very important to her, with the context being social media account. This is used to 'prove' that it is not his fault. He is only "stupid" but she is the "pyscho whore."
She then calls him "my husband" when she does not know what to call him. At the time of this posting, she is not done with him. He is "my" (possessive pronoun) "husband" (title). Although not a good relationship, he is still hers at the time of this writing.
If you research her accounts you will find, according to Moorer's language that Heather Elvis is a "twisted person."
What has changed in context to cause "pyscho whore girl" to turn into a "twisted" "person" (gender neutral)?
"I could care less seeing that I had a boyfriend of my own for the past couple of years" is a sentence in the negative (care less) making it important.
Note that as a married woman, he "cheated" on her, but she had a boyfriend "of my own" for the past couple of years.
Is this why she called Heather a "whore"? Is her boyfriend "stupid"? This is a soft term, and not one of anger. He "cheated" but he is only "stupid." She boasts of her own cheating as justification.
One might wonder if this is a projection of her own hypocrisy and duplicity.
Note "my children" and not "our" children. This is consistent with "my husband" as when someone says "our" children, there is often a need to 'share' custody (unless one is speaking for both parents). This "sharing" can be anything from adoption, foster care, or step parenting. When it is found in marriage, it may indicate that divorce has been spoken about.
Note that she does not affirm that she had an affair: only that she could "not care less"; which is what her statement is about. She does not say "I had a boyfriend" on its own terms, but only that she could care "seeing", leaving one to wonder if someone else "sees" it differently. She may be deceitful about having a boyfriend.
"I will not tolerate anyone hurting my children because my husband banged a hoe..."
a. Note the inclusion of the pronoun "I" here, making this statement personal.
b. Note the word "because" explains why she will not allow anyone to hurt her children: as she feels the need to explain why she would, now, be protective.
c. "my husband" is possessive pronoun.
One might ask if this mother has previously allowed someone to "hurt" her children, unrelated to infidelity. This "hurt" could be physical or emotional. This is her reason to protect her children. What about other incidents in which infidelity was not involved?
Please note that according to McClish research (and many subsequent confirmations), "three" is called "the liar's number"; that is, a number often found within lies.
Please note that she claimed that her husband cheated on her for 2 months.
It is possible that Sidney Moorer lied to her, minimizing the number of sexual contacts that he engaged in. Note that the location of sexual contact is given, which may be an attempt to portray the lack of care and lack of forethought by her husband. This is also likely a lie he told her, one of which she chooses to believe.
"and nothing more" may be entering into the language of Sidney. Note to Tammy: you can ask the following questions of your husband;
1. What does "nothing" look like?
2. Where did "nothing" take place?
3. How often did "nothing" happen?
"I could care less what he screwed around with"
Unlike her own "boyfriend", here, Heather elvis is now reduced to "what" instead of "person." This is a depersonalization of Heather Elvis. It could be from extreme pain of being humiliated in his cheating, or it could be that she knows something more and has a different need to depersonalize Heather Elvis. I think it is the former.
Note that this is her second "care less" sentence, in the negative. This is a very important sentence. The first one she sought to prove how she could "care less" because she had a boyfriend, which was asserted only weakly, and not reliable.
Here, the "what" is something she cares less over.
Taken together, it is likely that she cares acutely what he did. This is a subject who is feeling extreme pain and humiliation due to her husband's actions.
"this jerk" is the father of a missing young woman. This is stronger language than what she used on her cheating husband.
"stalking my family" indicates that Terry Elvis believes that the answer to his daughter's plight rests within Sidney Moorer, and whatever he shared with his wife.
Statement Analysis Conclusion
Tammy Moorer, at the time of this writing, does not show guilty knowledge of what happened to Heather Elvis.
Her attempt to minimize her own pain is thin. Her lack of concern for Heather Elvis' plight indicates extreme hurt and she blames Heather rather than her own husband for his infidelity. She does not make a strong assertion that she has a boyfriend, but rather shows an immature (wife and mother) 'tit for tat' self respect grab, which does not portray her in a positive light. I doubt her assertion (at the time of the writing only) of having a boyfriend, even though it shows her own moral standard's uneasy ground.
At the time of the writing, she still loves her husband, who has lied to her about the nature of his relationship with Heather Elvis, suggesting it was deeper than Tammy Moorer wishes to have seen.
Tammy Moorer does not assert her husband's innocence, nor even his ignorance, of the disappearance of Heather Elvis.
It is likely that Mrs. Moorer has her doubts.
The desperate father is a "jerk", which is stronger than her husband being "stupid", and she saves the most venom for the younger woman.
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" is evident within her posting.
In spite of her defense of her husband, we may see a change in language, over time, as more details of the affair comes out, and a shifting of blame away from the young victim, and more towards Sidney Moorer.
