Different theories have surfaced regarding the disappearance of Heather. As per Assistant solicitor Nancy Livesay’s theory for the jury in 2019 that Heather Elvis became pregnant during Sidney Moorer’s affair with her.
Nancy suggests that the possibility of the pregnancy may have stopped them from moving on in their life. That might be the motive that led the Moorers to craft an elaborate plot to kidnap Elvis, leaving little evidence behind.
Sidney had also bought a pregnancy test at Walmart before removing the SD card from his cellphone so he could not be tracked. After that, he called Elvis from a payphone instead of his own. But there is no exact evidence about Heather’s pregnancy.
