NEW DETAILS: Local Woman Brutally Murdered

SPOKANE, Wash. - On Thursday KHQ obtained a detailed description of the investigation into Evon Moore's murder. As already reported police named Derrick Vargas a suspect. Vargas pleaded not guilty to a separate rape charge on Wednesday. He was released from federal prison on a previous sex crime just two months ago.

It's a nine-page search warrant on the homicide investigation of Evon Moore. It started with the call for a body lying in the alley at Ralph and Riverside. When police found Moore she was only in a brown blouse and had tire tracks across her upper body. While searching the crime scene investigators took pictures of the tire tracks and partial shoe prints believed to be left by the suspect. That suspect now identified as Derrick Vargas.

On September 27th investigators recognized that the tire tracks matched those on the body of Evon Moore and the vehicle looked the same as the one captured by surveillance footage near the scene.

On September 28th detectives and forensic experts searched Vargas apartment and they found a shoe tread pattern that matched the footsteps at the scene and a purse believed to be Evon Moore's.

Jennifer Deruwe with the Spokane Police Department said it will be a little while before Vargas could be charged for the murder as they wait for blood samples to return. Vargas remains in the Spokane County Jail on a different rape charge.
