HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A crowdsourcing account for the couple accused of the murder of Heather Elvis has been removed.

The YouCaring.com online fundraiser for the Caison-Moorer Family Assistance had raised $730 of its $5,000 goal. The beneficiaries of the account were Polly Caison and the Moorer family, according to the account.

Tuesday, the website removed the account, according to Leonard Lee, spokesman for YouCaring.com.

Given the ongoing nature of the case, several people contacted the site, questioning the appropriateness of the fundraising campaign, Lee said.

Typically, funds are withdrawn at the discretion of the organizer, during course of campaign, when goal is reached or at conclusion of campaign.

However, Lee said they are reviewing the policies to determine what happens to the funds consistent with policies in these matter.

YouCaring.com reserves the right to remove fundraising campaigns that cause divisiveness within community regardless of the merits of the campaign itself.
