A judge has ruled that Tammy and Sidney Moorer, the accused killer of Heather Elvis, can be bonded out of jail.
This is likely going to be met with great anger from the public.
Statement Analysis of the case has been clear from the beginning with one notable exception: Tammy Moorer's raging post against her victim, Heather. This goes against percentages in that most will only subtly insult their victim. Tammy Moorer was unafraid to rage against Heather.
Bond was set at $100,000 with GPS restrictions. The judge's comments are revelatory:
"from my perspective" is distinct. He is a judge, and judicially, they have not been found guilty yet.
But is this what he believes in reality of their culpability?
"it's difficult" may indicate what he believes about them personally, rather than judicially. Anyone is innocent judicially and it is something that those who "did it" often state, rather than issue a reliable denial.
“I can’t control you. My setting of a bond doesn’t control the family. ... They are entitled to a bond. Everybody is entitled to a bond.”
Tammy Moorer (often listed first by media) has long been seen as the controlling and dominant of the two. Her mother is expected to put up the bond for them both.
This is heartbreaking and frightening for the Elvis family. Terry has reported that his younger daughter has received threats.
In the years of doing Statement Analysis, this is the only time I have found an open hatred and rage against a victim before the case was adjudicated.
Principle is not built upon exception. This was a good reminder and lesson that where there is a "90% likely", there is a "10% unlikely" in play.
Trial is set for May.
