Moore murder still an active investigation

GREENVILLE — The City of Greenville recorded only one homicide during 2012, but the murder of a local teenager drew national attention to the city.

Police Chief Daniel Busken said the death of 16 year-old Alicia Chanta Moore remains an active investigation.

“We met with representatives from the Texas Rangers right after the first of the year and talked about different aspects of the investigation,” Busken said.

Moore was last seen on the afternoon of Nov. 2, 2012 getting off of a school bus at the intersection of Bourland and Walnut Streets in Greenville, about a half-block from her home. Her body was found four days later along FM 47 in Van Zandt County.

The Greenville Police Department is working alongside the Hunt County District Attorney, Van Zandt County District Attorney, Texas Rangers, the FBI and the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office in conducting the investigation.

Busken said there has been a change in one aspect of the investigation, as a new sheriff took over in Van Zandt County with the first of the year.

“Which means the investigator they had assigned has changed,” Busken said. “That was one of the things we discussed.”

Busken continues to ask that anyone who may have any information concerning the case to contact the police department at 903-457-2900 or, to remain anonymous, Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929.

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.

Greenville had three homicides during 2011, none in 2010, one in 2009, none again during 2008 and reported five murders during 2007.
