Couple Arrested in Heather Elvis Case

By February 22, 2014

Follow me on:

Two people have been taken into custody and property seized from their Myrtle Beach home in connection with the disappearance of 20-year-old Heather Elvis, who vanished on December 17. Federal, state and local authorities searched the home and property of Sidney Moorer and Tammy Caison Moorer on South Carolina Hwy. 814 in Horry County.

Cadaver dogs searched the property Friday with negative results, said Police Lt. Robert Kegler.

In a news release, Horry County police said the search warrant served Friday was "executed in an attempt to identify potential evidence based on new information obtained through expert analysis of previously seized surveillance tapes in the area along with financial discrepancies filed with the state of South Carolina on behalf of the occupants of the residence."

Area Surveillance Video Analyzed

Kegler would not say what "financial discrepancies" the warrant referred to and also did not say the type of expert analysis the video received. He did say the surveillance videos were not from the property searched, but from other cameras in the area.

"The surveillance cameras that we're speaking of have nothing to do with this property," he said. "Those were previously seized surveillance cameras during the course of the investigation from December on, throughout the Socastee area."

The home searched appears from aerial photos to be part of a complex that includes another large home which is the residence of William Caison, who is listed as the owner of both homes.

Previously Searched

Kegler said the Moorer home had previously been the target of search warrants, but he gave no details or say if those searches were related to the Elvis case.

Heather Elvis was last seen at her home around 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 17, 2013. Her car was found two days later at Peachtree Landing in the Socastee community a few miles from the home that was searched Friday.
