Tammy Moorer's attorney has filed a motion asking for the state to return property seized when Horry County police searched her home as part of the Heather Elvis investigation.

In documents filed April 7, Myrtle Beach attorney Greg McCollum is requesting the release of "any and all items seized from the Moorer residence that have not been reviewed and/or examined at the time of this motion."

McCollum's motion does not specify what property he's seeking. Specifics of his motion have been filed under seal so as to comply with a gag order in the case.

"A short memorandum that references the property at issue as well as additional reasons for this motion has been provided under seal," the motion says.

According to search warrants and returns obtained by Waccamaw Publishers, Horry County police seized a litany of electronic devices when they searched the Moorers' home at 8796 Highway 814 and her parents' home next door on Feb. 21, 2014.

Search warrants said police seized numerous digital cameras; cell phones; iPods, iPads and an iPad mini; various video game systems including three Xbox 360s and a Nintendo Wii, laptop computers and dozens of CDs. One of the CDs seized was labeled "A Bug's Life."

Sidney Moorer, 39, and Tammy Moorer, 43, are charged with murder, kidnapping, obstruction of justice and indecent exposure in connection with the disappearance of Heather Elvis.

Elvis was 20 years old when she disappeared in December 2013. She was last known to be at Peachtree Boat Landing in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, 2013.

Police also seized financial records, notebooks, a Bi-Lo receipt dated Dec. 18, 2013 and a torso mannequin with a white tank top.

Guns were seized as well, but search warrant documents state the weapons were returned a couple of days later.

I assume that since you know her so well that you knew she was committing medicaid fraud. But she wouldn't do that either would she?

I have known Tammy Caison Moorer for 27 years. As a teenager I spent summers at her house with her family. The idea of her being involved in a murder is unthinkable and absurd. Tammy and her husband have three children. Two of them are teenagers. What home with teenagers does not have various electronic devices? When all is said and done I hope Tammy and her family sue the HCPD for false arrest and imprisonment. I support them 100 percent! Tammy will always be s great friend of mine. I KNOW they are innocent with my entire being. I was in contact with her the day they got back from her vacation.
