Sidney, Tammy Moorer due in court on eve of five-year anniversary of Heather Elvis’ disappearance

Sidney and Tammy Moorer due in court

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - The two people charged in connection with the 2013 disappearance of Heather Elvis are expected to appear in an Horry County courtroom this week.

A court roster shows both Sidney and Tammy Moorer are set to appear at 9:30 a.m. Monday, on a motion pertaining to handwriting samples.

Monday’s scheduled court appearance comes one day before the five-year anniversary of Elvis’ disappearance on Dec. 18, 2013.

In October, Tammy Moorer was found guilty of both kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping charges that stemmed from the investigation. She was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Last month, a parole board denied Sidney Moorer's request for release from prison. He was sentenced to 10 years in jail after being found guilty in 2017 of obstruction of justice for impeding the investigation into Elvis’ disappearance.

In June 2016, a mistrial was declared in Sidney Moorer’s kidnapping trial. A new trial is set to be held in Georgetown County, although a date has not yet been scheduled.

The Moorers are also both charged with including a false statement on an application for Medicaid assistance and obtaining a signature or property under false pretenses.

It’s unknown if Monday’s scheduled court appearances are for those counts, or if it’s in relation to the Elvis case.
