'I Hope They Catch The Person Who Murdered My Daughter'

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Family and friends gathered to mourn the loss 47-year-old Evon Moore at a memorial just one week after her body was found in an East Spokane alley.
 
During an emotional ceremony, Moore's family talked about the mother and grandmother's bubbly and kind personality. Her mother, five children, two brothers and six grandchildren were all present at the service.
 
"I love her so much, I wish I could see her again," said one of Moore's young granddaughters.
 
While family copes with the loss they also struggle with unanswered questions. Police have yet to figure out who killed Moore and why. Her body was discovered last Saturday by a worker taking out the trash in an alley behind a warehouse. Her cause of death has not been confirmed yet, but police say Moore appeared to have died from severe trauma to her head and neck.
 
"It hurt my heart that she was just left like that," said Moore's brother Tyson Gower. 
 
"I hope they catch the person who murdered my daughter," said her mother Catherine Moore.
   
Moore was a student at Spokane Community College. Her family says education was very important to her so they set up a memorial scholarship in her honor.
