CONWAY, S.C. (WBTW) – A jury continued to hear testimony from witnesses Tuesday in the kidnapping trial against Sidney Moorer.
Moorer’s charge stems from the disappearance of Heather Elvis. She’s been missing for more than two years.
Day two of the Moorer trial began at 9:30 a.m. with the State calling its first witness of the day to the stand. Stephano Schraldi says he took Heather Elvis out on their first date on Dec. 17. After going out to eat, he says they went back to his mother’s house to hang out and watch a movie. He says he took Elvis home after the movie wrapped up. He said he was at her apartment for about 5 minutes before leaving.
Schraldi said he called Elvis twice the next day. He did not hear back from her. He assumed “she was busy.”
The state then called Horry County Police Officer Officer Casey Guskiewicz to the stand. He said Elvis’ vehicle was found at Peachtree boat landing and was parked awkwardly. He says the car was locked. He did not see keys/phone inside. Guskiewicz said it’s not uncommon for people to leave vehicles at the boat landing. No incident report was filed.
The state then called its third witness of the day, Horry County Police Sergeant Danny Furr, to the stand. He said he contacted Sidney Moorer by phone and told him authorities were looking for Elvis. The said there was a pause on the phone on Moorer’s end. Furr said Moorer said he hadn’t talked to Elvis in about 6 weeks, before saying he spoke the night before.
