‘Her story is not over yet’

GREENVILLE — For almost four months, Alicia Chanta Moore’s family and friends have had to live with the anger and frustration of not knowing who murdered the Greenville teenager.

And yet there was time to celebrate just a little Saturday night, as the family hosted a block party in recognition of what would have been Moore’s 17th birthday.

But Jessica Nicole Byrd, Moore’s aunt, said the event was also designed to send a message.

“That her story is not over yet and that she has not been forgotten,” Byrd said.

The 1900 block of Gibbons Street was closed off Saturday night and organizers expected up to 100 people to attend the free event.

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. Her body was found  four days later 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.

The $25,000 reward was begun last month and while Byrd said investigators told her the offer has generated “a few calls”, the information which has been received has not been enough to solve the case.

Byrd again pleaded for someone to come forward.

“If you know something, say something,” Byrd said.

As of late last week, the police department was reporting there was no new information being released about the case.

The family has also requested a copy of Moore’s autopsy results, but has not heard anything back.

“That was a month ago,” Byrd said, adding she doesn’t know if the report has been completed. “They haven’t even told us that yet.”

Byrd said no other public events in Moore’s honor are immediately scheduled, but that an observance is being planned for the one year anniversary of Moore’s disappearance.

Anyone with information concerning the case is being asked to contact Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929. You will remain confidential.
