    Sidney Moorer on trial for the kidnapping of Heather Elvis ***MISTRIAL declared***#2

    Hung jury, mistrial declared in Sidney Moorer trial
    Friday, June 24th 2016


    link

    CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - After several hours of deliberation that began Thursday evening and continued for most of the day on Friday, 12 jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict and a hung jury was declared in the case of Sidney Moorer, who was charged with kidnapping in connection with the December 2013 disappearance of Heather Elvis.

    In light of this development, there is a mistrial and the case against Moorer will have to be retried with a new jury.

    Multiple jurors confirmed on camera that the jury was split: 10 in favor of a guilty verdict to two who argued for a not guilty verdict.

    Moorer's attorney Kirk Truslow couldn't speak on when a new trial for Moorer would be held, and that the mistrial Friday would have no impact on the other charges. He told media at the courthouse that a change of venue will be discussed for the new trial.

    "In a case like this, you want a resolution, for everybody," Truslow said. "If you have a firmly-held belief, you don't give it up just to get along," he added, speaking about the jury.

    Surely SOMEONE who has been to the Moorer home in the last several years has a pic.

    Is there still a reward in this case? Or it it just for discovery of Heather's body?

    and
    What about insurance claims - Property and Casualty? They usually have to take some good pictures. Any other pictures taken for insurance coverage?

    An appraiser would have them too, if they have recently refinanced.

    Here is an interview with juror (I think it's the same juror. Interview I quoted from was live at the time):

    Juror interview - maybe jurors should be asked in advance if they can convict someone on circumstantial evidence and be disqualified same as death penalty cases. Why even go through the whole trial if they know the evidence is all circumstantial, then the juror gives that as the reason for a Not Guilty?
    Good morning!

    River Oaks Drive Apartments? Not sure of exact street number/apartment, is probably in original police report, if not redacted.

    And the investigator/officer that took pics of the apartment said the exact info when she was on the stand, i think - will see if i can find it.

    I was pretty sure it was given during the trial and hoped someone had grabbed the info.

    Kangeroo address is 1929 10th Ave N, Myrtle Beach, SC. 10th Ave North is Joe White Ave - they are one and the same.

    Did Truslow ever use the word suspect ? I believe he got the information about the dates/guys from Bri's witness statement. It was up to the Jury to determine how much weight to give this information. A lawsuit against a defense attorney for bringing forth information that might be in favor of his client, would not be successful. IMO

    There was a pair that was discussed by KT - it just seemed really nasty how he brought them in but one of them was living across the country at the time of Heather's disappearance. I would think that person would have some legal rights. If it were me, I would do something to defend myself and not have my name slandered in another trial. No one should be permitted to pull my name out in a trial without giving me notice in advance of their intentions and providing a way to keep my name out of it. KT is highly unethical and belongs with the Moorers.
