The Heather Elvis Case: Arrests Made

MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE LURCHES TOWARD RESOLUTION … DATE WITH DAYTIME TELEVISION Two individuals have been arrested in connection with the December disappearance of 20-year-old Heather Elvis – including one man who allegedly had an affair with the missing woman. And his wife … According to the Horry County (S.C.) Sheriff’s Office…


Two individuals have been arrested in connection with the December disappearance of 20-year-old Heather Elvis – including one man who allegedly had an affair with the missing woman.

And his wife …

According to the Horry County (S.C.) Sheriff’s Office website, 38-year-old Sidney St. Clair Moorer and his wife – 41-year-old Tammy Lorinda Moorer – were taking into custody early Friday morning.

(Here’s a picture of the happy couple. And here are his and hers mug shots).

As of 1:30 p.m., charges against the Moorers had not been posted.

Elvis was last seen on December 17. Her car – a green 2001 Dodge Intrepid – was discovered two days later at a boat landing near Socastee, S.C.

The Horry County Police Department – another local law enforcement agency – executed a search warrant on Friday at the Moorers’ residence, located on S.C. Highway 814.

According to the agency the warrant was part of an effort to “identify potential evidence based on new information obtained through expert analysis of previously seized surveillance tapes in the area.”

The Elvis case is no typical disappearance …

For starters, the missing woman was allegedly involved in a sexual relationship with Sidney Moorer – who is an open relationship with his wife. In fact a reporter who claims to have interviewed Tammy Moorer last month states that Sidney Moorer had sex with Heather Elvis in her car “a total of three times.”

“He ended it when he realized something wasn’t right about her,” Tammy Moorer told the reporter.

Awesome …

UPDATE: Tammy Moore has been charged with two counts of indecent exposure and one count of obstruction of justice related to the search warrant served on her and her husband’s property. Huh? Indecent exposure charges related to a search warrant in connection with a missing person case? Yeah … welcome to South Carolina.

As will 2 months of lost sleep awaiting that knock on the door. They got their knock at 7:30 this morning. Now they can rest.

From The Usual Suspects:

“First day on the job, you know what I learned? How to spot a murderer. Let’s say you arrest three guys for the same killing. You put them all in jail overnight. The next morning, whoever’s sleeping is your man. You see, if you’re guilty, you know you’re caught, you get some rest, you let your guard down.”

Unfortunately, the “knock” they rec’d wasn’t “the” knock. No new information, really. Everyone in the family and involved in the case knew about the weird sexual hi-jinks attendant to this crew. If these two inbred jackasses are good for the probable murder of the Elvis girl, HCPD needs to find her body and stick it to their asses good, but that’s much easier said than done.

Apparently his reports of harassment were attempts to “out” investigators who were shadowing him very closely. Since he was being watched so closely they knew his reports were false. This includes them catching an investigator going through their garbage on security video.

BrigidBernadette February 23, 2014 at 11:47 am

They put up surveillance cameras on their own property, is what I assumed from a video she posted, and caught someone–an investigator?– going through their garbage. It sure would be interesting if they were implicated by their own surveillance.

Pull some teeth February 23, 2014 at 12:07 pm

May also suggest that , God forbid, the body is buried there and they wanted to know if anyone got close to discovering it. K9s didn’t hit. However, it takes an average of 17 days for the chemical compounds detected by Cdogs to reach the surface in an average grave of 2.3 to 3 feet per FBI records. Take into consideration the extreme weather of rain and ice and the possibility of a deeper grave considering the nature of their “compound” and a miss is possible. However if you look at Google photo they live adjacent to hundreds of acres of swamp that adjoins the IW and it is very unlikely it will ever be found without a confession.

Mike at the Beach February 23, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Unfortunately, you are absolutely correct. I’m not familiar with the investigators “caught” digging in the trash piece, but that’s totally legal as long as the trash had been placed out for collection (or they had a warrant). If the trash was still up in the curtilage of the house there would be a 4th Amendment issue there. Of course if it was all made up by the asshats; moot point.

BrigidBernadette February 23, 2014 at 11:50 am

Dostoyesvsky would have enjoyed their misery. The wait for impending arrest is worse than the wait for impending death. He apparently ran marathons, that will come in handy running around the prison yard trying to escape his new boyfriend.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 1:47 pm

“surveillance tapes in the area” This is OK but anything NSA does is not?

Original Good Old Boy February 21, 2014 at 1:53 pm

Surely you understand the difference between a business installing a surveillance camera for security versus one placed by a government to spy on you?

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 2:02 pm

So those cameras that you see in cities on traffic signals were put there by “businesses”?

tomstickler February 21, 2014 at 3:12 pm

As a matter of fact, yes. Most, if not all, red-light camera systems are private businesses that contract with municipalities on a split-fee basis. These businesses send out the ticket, and if you ignore it, the local DMV suspends your license.

A Libertarian’s dream, no? Let private industry do a better job than bloated government.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 3:32 pm

So as long as a “business” watches you, as a surrogate for government, that is OK?

Original Good Old Boy February 21, 2014 at 3:46 pm

The business is not “watching you” as a surrogate for the goverment. They are doing it to protect their business — either for liability prevention (to spot phony slip and falls, for example) or to deter theft. And yes, that is OK if law enforcement happens to need to view that surveillance as part of a criminal investigation. The distinction between private surveillance versus public surveillance should be one that is not too difficult to understand.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 3:56 pm

You miss the point, again. Government, directly or indirectly by using surrogates, has cameras that observe your actions at traffic lights. It might piss you off, assuming you get a ticket, but I don’t hear the libertarians on here crying Big Brother about it like they do over the NSA. My question was, and still is, why is one OK and the other not?

Original Good Old Boy February 21, 2014 at 4:11 pm

No, I understand your point. It’s just a stupid point. And I’m not sure how I can make it any clearer to you. What a private business does for its own personal surveillance is completely different than what the government does. Just because a private business happens to create *possible* evidence that will be later used in a criminal investigation does not mean they are the surrogate for the goverment. If you swipe your card at a diner, and the police later use that to establish your abibi, that is simply called evidence. It is not the diner being the government’s puppet.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 4:41 pm

We are talking apples and oranges. I am talking about traffic cameras set up to ONLY ensnare those who run stop lights. It has NOTHING to do with private businesses.

Mike at the Beach February 21, 2014 at 6:32 pm

Moot point brother – those ticket cams (red light OR speed) are illegal in good ol’ Sakerlina. Prohibited by an AG opinion since 2006, then hammered out of existence by statute in 2010 when some clown mayor decided that he was OK installing them as long as he let contractors do the dirty work, and pissed off the State House gang. At any rate, they’ve been gone for 7 or 8 years, essentially.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 11:30 pm

I wasn’t referring to SC only. It was the point that if you let the camel put his head in the tent, then it is just a matter of time before he is all the way in. If the populace allows traffic light cameras, how do they argue against the next iteration?

Mike at the Beach February 23, 2014 at 1:24 pm

We’re a mile off topic now, but OK. Traffic cameras and private surveillance are two entirely different worlds, SC or not. Traffic cameras (while stupid and highly annoying) are not Big Brother either. There is very little expectation of privacy in the Constitutional sense driving down a road created and maintained with public funds. Besides, we *didn’t* allow the traffic cams for long – the public outcry very quickly led to their legal demise, which was a good thing.

tmoore February 21, 2014 at 5:05 pm

Yall. Who cares. We’re more worried about the whereabouts of heather. Not about the nsa or business cameras. I dont agree with cameras but in this case, thank god there was. All that matters is that she is found. Not who is spying on us

Uh huh February 21, 2014 at 4:28 pm

“A Libertarian’s dream, no?”

Actually, that’s called fascism-it’s different from Libertarianism, and libertarianism…

With fascism you’ve the mixing of both gov’t and private industry. It’s the gov’t that gives private industry control over you(by suspending your license if you ignore the fine).

Original Good Old Boy February 21, 2014 at 3:42 pm

I don’t see anything in the article above that mentions traffic surveillance. Perhaps that is what caught them, but usually it’s something like a camera at an ATM or at a convenience store, and the footage is turned over voluntarily or by subpoena to help an investigation.

anonymous February 21, 2014 at 7:05 pm

They were convenience store cameras…our state is too poor for the traffic light camera’s LOL

Smirks February 21, 2014 at 3:51 pm

Let me know when 7-11 compiles a huge database of surveillance footage and starts hacking into customers’ email and phone records.

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Better yet, you give them plenty of data when you swipe your card at the gas pump. So how do you know they haven’t used and/or sold it?

sledge77 February 21, 2014 at 5:45 pm

What an asinine comment to make. Trolling for what cause?

CNSYD February 21, 2014 at 11:33 pm

Sorry if it is over your head. Either government surveillance is OK or not OK. You can’t pick and choose.

sledge77 February 22, 2014 at 7:17 am

You have no idea who’s cameras caught the perps but you make this tragedy political anyway. Empty headed thinking from a fanatic. The odds are overwhelming that these cameras were privately owned. You don’t care about truth unless it fits your agenda. That is intellectual weakness of the highest magnitude.

Why several trips to,Disneyland,but never,Disney World? Is,’Elvis’ her real last name?
Is Tammy Pekingese? Was that three separate times? What on earth wasn’t right about HER ? This story poses more questions than it answers. Will they ever be answered? I think not.

Vonda Feaster Cox February 21, 2014 at 11:32 pm

Yes, her last name is Elvis–a prominent Horry county last name. Obviously you haven’t lost a child.

Jackie Chiles February 21, 2014 at 2:11 pm

Yowsa. The victim was too pretty to be fooling with those monstrosities.

But for the grace of God.. February 21, 2014 at 2:30 pm

I always enjoy exploiting FITS articles for humor, etc but this is one story that is extremely sad. Having stumbled upon the Findheartherelvis facebook page a couple of weeks ago the sheer terror that this family has been enduring is unbelievable. These two have been taunting this family with posts (tammy caison moorer on FB and Sidney Moorer on FB) mocking their candlelight vigils, sending coded messages back and forth, and filing all sorts of crazy harassment complaints with the PD. The fact that this couple lived long enough to be arrested is nothing short of a miracle.

Hopefully these animals will be destroyed as quickly as our system will allow. May the Elvis family receive a miracle and their daughter be brought home safely and if not may they find some peace in swift justice.

well if you read into it more. it appears tammy was using both phones and actually doing so much of this posting
