HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Court documents indicate an updated indictment for obstruction of justice has been filed against Sidney Moorer, whose trial for the kidnapping of missing Heather Elvis ended in a hung jury last year.

The updated indictment, filed on March 27 of this year, appears to be an update to his existing obstruction of justice charge, which was originally filed in 2014, and has yet to go to trial. That charge has since been disposed, according to court records.

The new indictment states: “That Sidney Moorer did in Horry County on or about December 20, 2013 through December 21, 2013, intentionally do an act which prevented, obstructed, impeded, or hindered the administration of justice, in violation of the Common Law offense of Obstruction of Justice.” 

The new indictment also removes Detective Allen Large from the witness list. The two witnesses listed on the updated indictment are Jeffrey Cauble with the Horry County Police Department and Jon martin.

WMBF News reached out to the 15th Circuit Court Solicitor’s Office for details, but because of the active gag order on the case, court officials were unable to comment.

During his trial last year, it came to light that Moorer was originally charged with obstruction of justice for allegedly lying to investigators about making a call to Elvis from a pay phone on the night of her disappearance.

Moorer is still charged with kidnapping Elvis. After five-day trial in June 2016, the jury was unable to come to a unanimous decision, and a mistrial was declared. A new date for Moorer’s retrial has not yet been announced to the public.
