Police: Van driver may have seen murdered teen

Posted: Updated:

The Greenville Police Department has all 50 of its officers trying to solve the case of a murdered teen. It is also asking for witnesses to come forward.

A week ago 16-year-old Alicia Moore's aunt and grandmother filed a missing persons report because she never came home from school. Four days later her body was found in a storage trunk 40 miles away.

Newly released documents in the case reveal Moore suffered from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and was on medication for it. And her mother told police she'd disappeared before with an older male she'd befriended over the summer. That's why her case was initially filed as a runaway.

Police also released more pictures from the surveillance camera on her bus. Investigators want to talk to the driver of the Chrysler or Dodge minivan that was directly behind the bus when she got off at the corner of Walnut and Bourland streets. He or she may have witnessed her walking away or getting into another vehicle.

Also, another man told police he went into the RK Mart that afternoon. He said as he walked in he saw Moore sitting in the front seat of a car.

"I just remember seeing her walking all the time. She had her glasses on and how little she was. That's the only way I could recognize her," he said.

He described the man Moore was with as a husky and "not from around here."

"I kinda got a strange feeling because I was kinda scared to say something to him. But I went on and spoke to him anyway," he said. "She kinda looked at me then held her head down."

Investigators confirmed that they did talk to the possible witness, but said the lead has gone cold.

The manager at the RK Mart said the surveillance video for last Friday was automatically deleted after three days. And Van Zandt County sheriff's deputies didn't find anything on surveillance video from a convenience store near where the body was found in Wills Point.

There are still no persons of interest or suspects in the case.

A reward funded by a local car dealership, a McKinney businessman and donations has grown to $16,000. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact police.
