Authorities in the state of Washington say new evidence has surfaced in the cold-case disappearance of a Tenino-area woman.
According to The Olympian, Nancy Moyer, who was last seen more than a decade ago in her home, has been presumed dead due to foul play for years. Further evidence was scant, however, and no arrests were made.
She worked for the Washington Department of Ecology and a colleague was the last known person to see her alive upon giving her a ride home on the evening of March 6, 2009. Bank activity showed she later wrote a check at a nearby store.
When her estranged husband arrived home the next day, however, he reported finding the home in disarray. While Bill Moyer was investigated early on in the case, he denied any role in her disappearance and has since been eliminated as a suspect.
In an announcement this week, Thurston County Sheriff’s Office sources revealed that “new information came to light” recently, prompting a renewed investigation at a location on Sheldon Lane near the victim’s hometown.
Beyond that short statement, however, Sgt. Cameron Simper said investigators are not prepared to offer details, as reported by the Daily Chronicle.
“We’re not going to release any additional information at this time,” he clarified.
