New Reward Offered in Moore Case

A new reward fund has been established in the Alicia Moore murder case.

During a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Greenville Police Chief Daniel Busken and Van Zandt County Sheriff Lindsey Ray announced that a $25,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Moore's death.

Moore's family members also attended the press conference after meeting earlier in the day with Busken and Ray. Ray, who took office January 1, said it was his first chance to speak with Moore’s family concerning the case.

Moore, 16, 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 Farm Road 47 in Van Zandt County and the Greenville Police Department has joined with multiple other agencies in conducting a homicide investigation in the case.

Neither Busken or Ray commented on specifics of the investigation and declined to confirm a cause of death or whether any suspects had been identified in the case.
