DERIC LOSTUTTER V THE INTERNET: THE HEATHER ELVIS KIDNAPPING
I had forgotten about the connection between Deric Lostutter and the kidnapping of Heather Elvis, an attractive 20 year old woman who disappeared three years ago this month.
Two people, Sidney Moorer and his wife, Tammy Moorer were arrested and charged with six counts including kidnapping, obstruction of justice and indecent exposure.
Based on current information Heather Elvis has not been found. Her fate remains a mystery. There is a Facebook website set up to post current information about Heather and appeals are being made for information that may help find her or at least find out what happened to her and why.
There is also a Twitter account set up for the same purpose:
So, what is Deric’s connection to this case? According to a source “Those who support the accused murderers, the Moorers, hired him to harass individuals that support the Elvis family and to hack into their account and Facebook groups. Was also hired to find out the identity of somebody going by the name of The Farmer. Took off from there.”
One of the things Deric did was to start writing articles on his blog that were clearly biased against those who felt the Moorer’s were guilty and needed to be prosecuted for their alleged crimes:
“Terry Elvis and his wife seem compassionate about the search for their missing daughter.
His ex-wife, Karen, tells a different story.
She claims that not only does Terry have a grown daughter named Alyssa he has had zero interaction with, he actually set their house on fire with her inside.
She paints a picture of a violent, and unstable man, full of rage and unpredictable.
A ragtag group of miscreants who call themselves “Moorer Case Discussion“, named after the accused, Sidney and Tammy Moorer.
I was hired to investigate this group for harassing my clients, threatening their lives, and even posting pedophilia style pictures of their children, pictures that I would not dare share here less further harm the minors.”
There has been an ongoing discussion on Twitter and elsewhere regarding the fact that Deric is not licensed nor is he qualified to be a private detective in the State of South Carolina or anywhere else, for that matter.
When this debate came to light, I did some research regarding this issue and wrote what I found out:
I came to the conclusion that Deric was neither properly licensed nor was he qualified to be a private detective for hire.
It is unknown at this time, weather or not Deric is still offering his services as a private detective or if he has any current clients.
In a similar article, Deric took issue with the involvement of Alexandra Goddard with the MCD group:
He writes once again making accusations against the MCD discussion group:
“Moorer Case Discussion is a group that targets children, even Photoshopping male genitalia over the faces of the supporters of Sidney and Tammy Moorer.
Photoshopping isn’t their strong suit.
However, it is a tactic they resort to, to harass and incite those who question the motives and goings on of the Heather Elvis case.”
Some of the comments that appear at the Horry Facebook may be the reason Deric has some issues:
“Maybe the self proclaimed PI as he likes to call himself should have gone to the defense with his info. Someone doesnt have one and could sure use one 😂😂😂”
” Bye, hacker boy.
“Dude, you do an OPINION BLOG, awful at that. LMAO at claims LE will use it, LSHMSFO ON”INVESTIGATIONS” Laughing all the way to California at you…. HAHAHAHA“
“Well Deric Lostutter, I just saw the new sharticle you have written by twisting people’s words. Now where is the one you promised about recorded phone calls with the founder of CUE?“
“Deric Lostutter, would you care to talk about the court cases that are pending against you?“
It is clear that the visitors to that Facebook page are clearly biased against Deric.
It seems clear that a number of people took issue with Deric’s involvement with the case. I have yet to find any website or individual who has supported Deric against this criticism including the Moors themselves.
