Horry couple in murder case charged with fraud

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - An Horry County couple charged with murder in a case involving a missing woman have now been charged with Medicaid fraud.

Records show that 42-year-old Tammy Moorer and 38-year-old Sidney Moorer are each charged with one count of making a false statement on an application for Medicaid assistance.

They are accused of failing to disclose to Medicaid their true financial status between 2007 and 2013. Investigators say the couple failed to disclose income from two businesses, and received more than $10,000 in inappropriate benefits.

They also are charged with murder, kidnapping, obstruction of justice and indecent exposure. Twenty-year-old Heather Elvis was reported missing in December when her car was found in Socastee. Her body has not been found.
