Investigators release joint statement concerning Alicia Moore murder investigation

GREENVILLE — The Greenville Police Department and the Van Zandt County District Attorney and Sheriff's Offices released a joint statement Wednesday evening regarding the status of the investigation into the murder of Alicia Moore:

While the arrest of Michael Vincent Moore signifies a material step in our investigation into the disappearance and murder of Miss Alicia Moore, our investigation is still ongoing. 

 

Despite the discovery of DNA evidence linking him to this crime, we anticipate the discovery of additional evidence that will further implicate Michael Vincent Moore in the murder of his 16 year old niece. We have gathered items of interest during the execution of a search warrant at Mr. Moore’s residence and we are currently analyzing those items to determine their evidentiary value. We will also continue to pursue other

investigative leads until we have gathered as much evidence as possible in this case. 

 

Therefore, until we conclude our investigation, we will continue to restrict the release of sensitive information in this case. We are working as quickly and as diligently as possible to bring this case to a close for Alicia and her family. While we would like to share more information at this time, doing so could compromise our investigation and jeopardize a subsequent prosecution.
