    5 days ago — Turner is talking about 34-year-old Timothy Eugene Moore, an ex-con now charged with the murder of his sister Egypt Covington.

    How can that be his sister? He's black and she's white? Just catching up on this one. Sad.

    I thought Egypt was mixed race - black parent and a white parent? I might be wrong on that. So it is possible this guy could be a brother or half-brother.

    IMO - that sentence is so badly worded! I just replayed the video - D. Turner (who is interviewed) is Egypt’s brother.......the suspect is not related to Egypt as LE are still digging to see if there was any connection between the two prior to her murder. I know, could they possibly have made it more confusing?

    I can't believe this is the only thread about this case. It seems there are a lot of locals here and some of the other local cases, Chelsea Bruck/Danielle Stislicki/Julia Niswender etc. had numerous threads.

    Anyways, the other day I was thinking....she was found bound with 'christmas lights' but it was summer (June). That never struck me as odd until I realized it was summer, so unless she had them up or around somewhere, seems random when something else would be more common.

    this case caught my eye cause the family got sick of the local le and rallied so its handed to state .. and its solved most likely ....it makes me think of small town murder in specific which has been wrecked by the local le and no one is doing a thing about it

    I am wondering about motive...especially as they are considering more than one killer...could be a stalker / rejection issue or violent robbery

    So I was curious what connected this man to Egypt and what his long rap sheet consisted of...so I did a little sleuthing and found this:
    Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS) - Offender Profile

    Which only made this arrest more puzzling since he was purportedly in prison at the time of the murder :confused:

    Yea I'm assuming the OTIS record must be wrong but it's sad that you can't trust a Michigan Department of Corrections website :/

    I read that he was out on parole/probation at the time and that date is the date he was 'discharged' from MDOC. I'll see if I can find where I read that and post it.
