Detectives looking for pieces to puzzle of Hampstead murder

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

Body

The body of 52-year-old Beverly Ennis Moore, a mother of three, was found in her Sloop Point Road home more than a week ago.

“We’ve tracked down many leads, we’ve talked to several people, we just don’t have a suspect at this time,” said Detective Scott Lawson of Pender County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives say there were no signs of forced entry in to the house and no signs of a struggle. Evidence was taken from inside and it is currently being processed.

While investigators wait for more clues, they are asking for the public’s help. A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Detective Lawson said, “We’re looking for the small piece of puzzle that will make all this come together. Someone out there knows something. Someone out there saw something.”

Investigators say Moore was murdered sometime between 11:00 a.m. and late afternoon on Sunday, September 27th. It would be hours before her husband, Darryl, discovered her body and went to a neighbor to call 9-1-1.

Moore’s husband has been questioned in the murder, and is not currently being considered a suspect.

The medical examiner’s office determined Moore died of strangulation and lists sexual assault as a contributing factor. That said, many questions still surround the case.

“It is frustrating. We have a family that would like to have closure to this, we have investigators who are working hard,” said Detective Lawson. “We haven’t got all the answers yet. This isn’t a thirty minute crime show on TV, but we’re going to see this through until we have no where else to go.”

The Pender County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the SBI to help solve this case. Though investigators don’t have a suspect, they still have leads.

If you have any information, call the Pender County Sheriff’s Office at 259-1438.
