Reward fund in Alicia Moore case to be closed at family's request

GREENVILLE — The family of Alicia Chanta Moore has asked that a fund established to bring in information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the Greenville teenager's murder be closed.

Jessica Nicole Byrd, Moore's aunt, said account, which had grown to $25,000, is being shut down at the family's request, for personal reasons.

"Too many people are trying to use it to advertise their business or boost themselves up," Byrd said. "We all decided as a family that we wanted it shut down."

Byrd said that to her knowledge no one had come forward seeking to claim the reward.

"With faith in the Lord we know that justice will be done in due time," Byrd said, adding that dealing with the fund was just more than the family was able to handle.

"We're just trying to ease the pain," Byrd said.

Moore, 16, was last seen on the afternoon of November 2 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 November 6 along FM 47 in Van Zandt County.

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

Greenville Police Chief Dan Busken has indicated that it is still an ongoing investigation. Anyone who may have any information concerning the case is being asked to contact the police department at 903-457-2900 or, to remain anonymous, Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929.
