Mourning walk for Alicia Moore Saturday, memorial and reward funds established

GREENVILLE — A memorial walk is scheduled Saturday and a memorial fund has been established to assist the family of Alicia Moore.

Multiple rewards are also being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Moore’s murderer.

Moore, 16, disappeared one week ago today, after stepping off a school bus about a half-block from her residence.

Her body was found Tuesday along FM 47 in Van Zandt County and the Greenville Police Department has joined with multiple other agencies in conducting a homicide investigation in the case.

No new developments concerning the investigation had been made public, and funeral services for Moore remained pending, as of Thursday evening.

— A community mourning and awareness walk from Graham Park to the intersection of Bourland and Walnut Streets, where Moore exited the bus, is scheduled for noon Saturday. Organizers are asking those participating in the event to wear purple, Moore’s favorite color, if possible.

— Mark Cobb with Kids R Kids Learning Academy in McKinney, where Moore’s aunt Jessica Byrd is employed, has offered a reward of $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whomever killed Moore, 16, of Greenville.

— Greenville Chrysler Jeep Dodge is also offering $10,000 toward the same goal.

— Hunt County Crime Stoppers has also posted a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Moore’s death.

— Cobb said he has also contributed $1,000 toward a fund benefiting the Moore family, and that Greenville Chrysler has done the same.

Those wishing to contribute to either the reward fund or the benefit account for the Moore family can send donations to Kids R Kids Learning Academy, 9070 Westridge Boulevard, McKinney, Texas 75070.

Moore's aunt, Jessica Nicole Byrd, has indicated that donations to either the memorial fund or reward fund can be made at American National Bank.
