The mysteries of missing person cases are always captivating because they are stories without endings. They are often still open cases, with or without ongoing investigation.
Every missing person has a family or some tie to society that carries their memory on. Some missing cases are tragic and often lead to worst-case scenarios.
Exceptionally few disappeared persons have been returned to the community after a long period in any suitable shape.
But sometimes, missing might be better. In the case of Heather Elvis, it’s up to interpretation whether her disappearance in 2013 was the tragedy that it was initially reported as.
Once details emerged about the scandalous relationships and dangerous activities she was up to, it could be said that disappearance may be seen as a form of retreat.
Or, it could be the cover for a perfect murder as a response to an imperfect set of unfortunate circumstances.
10 Heather Elvis, Present
Heather Elvis was a South Carolina student working part-time at the Tilted Kilt in Myrtle Beach while studying cosmetology.
She was the oldest daughter in her house and lived shortly after graduating high school to be an independent adult. It turns out she may have been too independent.
Her roommate at the time, Brianna Warrelmann, was the last person to talk to her before she disappeared.
9 Waiting On
During her job at the Tilted Kilt restaurant, she met and mingled with a fellow employee, Sidney Moorer. He was 38 to her young 20, but she didn’t mind it and openly discussed her desires to start a relationship with him.
A very close sexual relationship, at that. She even confessed extreme desires, saying she wanted to rape him and was very aggressive. Sidney seemed to receive these advances, and, about a month later, they saw each other.
