The father of the woman charged with kidnapping and killing Heather Elvis of Myrtle Beach has died.
William Caison died of natural causes this morning, according to Horry County Coroner Robert Edge.
Tamra Willard, with the coroner's office, said because he died of natural causes there would be no investigation.
Caison's daughter, Tammy Caison Moorer, and her husband Sidney Moorer are charged with murder and kidnapping in connection with the disappearance of Heather Elvis.
Elvis disappeared some time after 6 a.m. Dec. 18. Her car was found at Peachtree Boat Landing in the Socastee area after a citizen reported its presence at about 5:47 p.m. Dec. 19, according to public records.
At a bond hearing this past week, a judge denied bond for the couple.
An Horry County grand jury indicted the couple for murder and kidnapping Friday.
Also Friday, Judge Steven John issued a gag order in the Heather Elvis missing persons case, which means officials working the case can no longer talk to the media about it.
