Solicitor Jimmy Richardson Solicitor Jimmy Richardson

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - On Tuesday afternoon, Horry County Solicitor Jimmy Richardson released the following statement addressing the high-profile Heather Elvis case:

We understand and sympathize with the public's desire to know more information about this tragic case. But the fact remains that while the Moorers have been charged with Obstruction of Justice, Indecent Exposure, Kidnapping and the Murder of Heather Elvis, this investigation is ongoing. In the interest of justice for Heather, her family and friends, and the entire Horry County community, we simply cannot risk jeopardizing either the current investigation or future prosecution at this time.

The Circuit Solicitor's Office commends the work of the Horry County Police Department and the many different law enforcement agencies who have worked tirelessly in this case. We also appreciate the interest and cooperation of the public as we continue to work together with law enforcement. As soon as we are able to release more information without the risk of jeopardizing either the investigation or prosecution, we will do so, as we know it will help answer questions and provide some degree of closure to a grieving family and community.

Jimmy A. Richardson II, Solicitor for Horry and Georgetown Counties
