Heather Elvis: Police Statement
That this beautiful young girl met with foul play at the hands of Tammy and Sidney Moorer is unthinkable and an unbearable thought that the Elvis family has had to live with likely since the beginning.
Terry Elvis, the courageous father of Heather, sought to gain information, as did his friends, directly from those who had the information: Tammy and Sidney Moorer. Hence, the vicious rant of Tammy Moorer against him, and against Heather.
That Tammy Moorer did not seek to conceal her contempt of Heather and Terry Elvis is a frightening and sobering thought.
Both will be in court this morning as we should learn more about the kidnapping charges.
Kidnapping charges, along with obstruction charges, indicate that not only was Heather either restrained or restricted from calling 911, but that these two took deliberate steps to hinder the investigation; that is, to obstruct the process of justice for Heather Elvis.
The Moorers have separate attorneys.
“A search warrant was executed in an attempt to identify potential evidence based on new information obtained through expert analysis of previously seized surveillance tapes in the area along with financial discrepancies filed with the state of South Carolina on behalf of the occupants of the residence."
That surveillance tapes are mentioned is likely tied to the kidnapping charges.
Also: In past successful police work, it was accepted that criminal behavior did not exist in a vacuum and that those who engaged in serious crime likely had other behaviors that were illegal. If someone was suspected in a major crime, but had committed lesser crimes, police often arrested them on the lesser charges while continuing to investigate the serious charges, allowing the subject time to consider making a deal with prosecutors.
I believe that this is the route that should have been taken in the Hailey Dunn murder case, as there were a multitude of charges that could have been brought against Billie Jean Dunn and Shawn Adkins. It is my belief that Shawn Adkins would have sought a deal.
This may be the case of legally and lawfully getting to the information on what happened to Heather Elvis.
