A woman identified Tammy Moorer is accused of conspiring and abducting Heather Elvis, her husband’s 20-year-old lover, who vanished in December 2013 from Myrtle Beach after having a sexual relationship with her husband, Sidney Moorer. She also forced her husband to get her name tattooed above his crotch as punishment for cheating on her.
Nearly five years later, Heather Elvis hasn’t been found and is presumed dead, the New York Post reports.
Testimony in the kidnapping trial against Tammy Moorer revealed that she was overheard explaining the “punishment” meted out to her 38-year-old husband, Sidney Moorer.
Prosecutors say Tammy became vindictive after discovering the affair in October 2013 and hearing rumors about the possibility that Elvis was pregnant.
Jacob Melton, who was friends with one of the Moorers’ sons, testified yesterday that Sidney got Tammy’s name tattooed on his lower waist when she learned about the extramarital affair. She allegedly told her husband:
“If you didn’t have that thing with that girl, this wouldn’t be happening.”
Yesterday Elvis’s former employer, Dennis Clark, a former manager at the Tilted Kilt – the bar where Sidney performed maintenance work and met Elvis, also provided testimony. He said Tammy demanded on the phone that the hostess be fired or her husband wouldn’t continue to do repairs.
Clark claimed the conversation occurred sometime between October and December 2013.
Both Tammy and Sidney have been charged in connection to Elvis’s case.
The pair initially faced murder and kidnapping allegations in 2014, but two years later the murder charges were dropped.
Sidney was tried last year on the kidnapping charge but the proceedings ended in a mistrial when the jurors couldn’t come to a unanimous decision.
No future date has been set for his retrial.
