    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Numerous motions have been filed by the attorney for Sidney Moorer requesting an abundance of evidence be withheld from an upcoming trial related to the disappearance of Heather Elvis.

    The documents, dated April 4, were submitted by attorney Kirk Truslow on behalf of Sidney Moorer to request certain evidence be prohibited on grounds the evidence is “irrelevant, more prejudicial than probative, and / or hearsay.” The evidence that Truslow would like to have thrown out includes:

    • Staged photographs of the Moorers posing with a firearm while on vacation
    • Statement of Sidney Moorer’s wife, Tammy Moorer, made in any form to or about Heather Elvis or the Elvis family (to include text messages, email, Facebook posts or any other form of communication)
    • Any and all communication between Sidney and Tammy Moorer, electronic or otherwise
    • All photos obtained from the Moorers explicit in nature
    • Any “other prejudicial and non-probative evidence”

    Criminal defense attorney says kidnapping charges against Sidney and Tammy Moorer should be dismissed
    By Taylor Herlong
    Published: April 15, 2016, 10:03 pm Updated: April 15, 2016, 10:22 pm

    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW)- Sidney Moorer is scheduled to appear for a pre-trial hearing Monday on charges related to Heather Elvis’ disappearance.

    Last month, the solicitor dropped murder charges against Tammy and Sidney Moorer, but the couple still faces a kidnapping charge.

    Criminal Defense Attorney Stuart Axelrod says he’s been following the case for years, and he simply doesn’t see how the case can move forward.

    “They don’t have a body, they had the murder charge, they dismissed the murder charge, and now they’re going to try to go forward on a kidnapping charge,” said Axelrod.

    CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - One of the state's proposed expert witnesses began testifying Monday morning during a pre-trial hearing for Heather Elvis kidnapping suspect Sidney Moorer.

    Grant Fredericks, who works in forensic video analysis, testified that he is a contract instructor at the FBI National Academy and has taught forensic video analysis in a number of countries.

    During questioning by prosecuting attorney Nancy Livesay, Fredericks talked at length about reverse projection, which is the process of overlaying temporary images of a scene with historic images of a scene in order to make observations or to obtain measurements.

    Headlight spread patterns were also discussed during the opening of Monday's hearing, which also came into play to identify a vehicle in question involved in this case, according to the witness.

    Fredericks testified that he could not identify a truck related to the case without the use of this science. He said his opinion is the vehicle involved in the case did belong to the defendant.

    HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Police Deputy Chief of Support Scott Rutherford announced his retirement Wednesday, five days after Chief Saundra Rhodes served her last day before retiring herself.

    County spokeswoman Lisa Bourcier confirmed to WMBF News that Rutherford is retiring on June 6. Rutherford started on the police force on June 4, 1991, and was promoted to Deputy Chief of Support by then-Chief Saundra Rhodes in 2012. He earned a yearly salary of $79,747.20.

    Former Horry County Police Chief Rhodes announced on April 25 that she would retire on May 6. On May 9, documents obtained by WMBF News revealed that the county paid over $60,000 into the state’s retirement system so that she could retire over a year early.

    Rhodes’ retirement came as several individuals in the department are under investigation, including a detective who was fired after a 2015 investigation revealed sustained allegations of sexual harassment, and another detective who allegedly failed to investigate over 80 cases fully or appropriately.
