Tammy Moorer discovered her 38-year-old husband, Sidney, had been sleeping with 20-year-old Heather Elvis, back in October of 2013. There were rumors that Elvis was pregnant. At the same time, Elvis mysteriously vanished from Myrtle Beach. It has been five years later, and Elvis hasn’t been found and is presumed to be dead.
Now, Tammy Moorer is on trial, as she had been allegedly overheard explaining a crazy “punishment,” regarding the “forced revenge tattoo” and the kidnapping.
Jacob Melton, friend of one of Moorers’ sons, testified Monday that Sidney has Tammy’s name above his crotch area, after she learned about the affair.
“If you didn’t have that thing with that girl, this wouldn’t be happening,” Tammy allegedly told her husband, according to Melton’s testimony.
Sidney Moorer did maintenance work at a bar called the Tilted Kilt. That’s where he had met Heather Elvis, who was a hostess at that time.
Dennis Clark, a former manager at the Tilted Kilt, provided a testimony that linked Tammy to having a history of seeking payback on Elvis. Clark said Tammy demanded that the hostess be fired or her husband wouldn’t continue to do repairs on the bar.
Clark claimed the conversation occurred sometime between October and December 2013.
“Tammy barged into the conversation and proceeded to tell me how Heather was causing problems for her family, spreading rumors that she was pregnant by her husband and said to fire her,” Clark told the court.
While the defense team maintained Monday that the trial’s evidence shows there in fact was an affair, nothing can indicate that Tammy played any role in Elvis’ disappearance.
Both Tammy and Sidney have been charged in connection to Elvis’ case, but this isn’t their first set of charges for the case. The spouses 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.
In 2017, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for obstruction of justice in the case.
