Episode 033 - The Disappearance of Heather Elvis
In the summer of 2013, twenty year old Heather Elvis had an affair with Sidney Moorer, a much older married man she met through her job. When Sidney's wife, Tammy, found out, the relationship was severed and Heather became the subject of threats and insults. By December, Heather was moving on with her life and hoping to leave Sidney and Tammy in the past.
She went out on a date and was excited for her future. In the early morning hours of December 18th, Heather mysteriously vanished. Her car was found abandoned at a remote boat landing not far from the Moorer's home. Over the next few weeks, Police investigated the possibility that Sidney and Tammy may have been involved in Heather's disappearance.
The two were charged with murder, as well as indecent exposure, kidnapping and obstruction of justice. Most of the charges were dropped before going to trial, leaving the Elvis family wondering why. The Moorer's pointed the finger at Heather's father, accusing him of murdering his own daughter. The Elvis family felt the Moorer's were responsible. Others began to wonder if Heather could have run off, or if her date that night may have had dark intentions.
What happened to Heather Elvis? Did she choose to run away from a troubled life to start over? Does her date know more than he is saying? Did Heather's father lash out against his own child? Or, do Sidney and Tammy Moorer possess all of the answers investigators have been seeking? Join host Steven Pacheco as he explores this complicated and confusing case in hopes of answering the question: What happened to Heather Elvis?
In October of 2018, a jury found Tammy Moorer guilty of kidnapping Heather Elvis. A trial regarding her husband and Heather’s former boyfriend, Sidney Moorer remains to take place.
