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

    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?

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

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

    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

    Yup! There was a huge petition to get this judge removed from the case, but it didn't work.

    I feel like people were shocked by PC's little interview. This clan has never complied with the gag order. Not even SM in the middle of his trial. What I find shocking or maybe just really stupid, is what PC says and not that she dares to speak. She has already said in previous interviews that the truck never left the yard and we've all seen video of it doing just that. We know that SM was out and about,he has admitted that and we have video. She lies. She is claiming that SM and TM are innocent because she was with them. OK, Polly, you were in the truck running around with SM? Put her on the stand!
