Heather Elvis: Heartbreak
attacking the Elvis family.
Terry Elvis was, as expected, utterly unprepared for the vicious comments that appeared across the internet, on blogs yes, but especially on news articles.
The comments section in news articles is an interesting part of news today, and with freedom of speech comes both responsibility and...
Terry Elvis has a family, and Heather a baby sister. The family is subject to a specific pain that only a few know: no parent ever believes he will outlive his child.
Even fewer could ever imagine their precious child, on the cusp of discovering life, to be brought to death by violent and deliberate means. Car accidents, fire, illnesses...all unexpected, but murder?
No one could predict such a horrific start to Heather's adult life, first, falling in with immoral people, and then to disappear.
Terry Elvis and his family and close friends, were forced to watch Sidney and Tammy Moorer withhold information on where Heather was, and to find themselves vilified by a small number of Moorer supporters who, unable to defend the Moorers, instead took to attacking the Elvis family (and friends), who had, expectedly, grown inpatient with Heather remaining missing.
Vowing to disclose 'dark secrets' and mocking the faith of the family, there are some who know no boundary to cruelty, and as the ancient text says, find no sleep until they have brought pain to others.
The heartbreak for the Elvis family did not conclude with the murder charge. Heather remains unburied. For these people of faith, a proper Christian burial is something they need to have happen.
The twisted Moorers have yet to disclose where Heather's remains are. With no voice of her own, Terry, as well as forensics are all that remain to defend Heather. Given Tammy Moorer's vicious attack upon Heather, it is to be expected that she will, perhaps through her attorney, blame Heather and claim 'accidental' death. Her insane jealousy fueled rage will not allow her to accept responsibility for what she and her husband Sidney did to Heather, as as water seeks its own level, we may expect Moorer family and friends alike to seek to inflict more pain upon the Elvis family, by attacking the young girl's reputation.
Tammy Moorer's attacking post was off-the-charts unexpected. Most guilty people do not wish to be seen in this manner. They will slip out words of hatred or blame, not openly, but in a subtle manner, as they seek to conceal the burning hatred within them, but are betrayed by their own words. Not so with Tammy Moorer. Her open hatred of a missing person is a window into the darkness that is her soul. Itself, it tells us a great deal about Tammy Moorer, including her raging envy, immorality, and desire to cast all blame upon the victim, while clearing her weak and beggarly husband.
It is also an indication of the rage that the young, and very small, Heather, met in that fateful encounter with Tammy, who did not feel the need to masquerade her animosity nor did she seek to conceal that she is the dominant 'leader' of the two, speaking boldly for her husband. I will not be surprised to see a split, eventually, between the two.
Yet, their supporters will continue their vile postings.
It is all they have to 'defend' the indefensible. It is similar to avoiding a question, while attacking the one posing the question.
For in murder, there is insanity.
The insanity and power of envy, that which not only wants what another has, but if denied, wants to take away that which is possessed.
The older Sidney Moorer exploited the youth of Heather Elvis, and we now see the character of the beast he was married to. Perhaps it was that Heather represented an innocence that neither Sidney nor Tammy could abide.
When the Moorers attack and blame Heather for the murder, both forensic evidence, and the unbroken strength of a father, will be Heather's voice...
even while the heart continues to break.
