Scoop: Coming Up on a New Episode of 20/20 on ABC - Friday, October 26, 2018
This week Tammy Moorer was found guilty of kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap Heather Elvis, her husband's former mistress who has been missing since 2013. Just days earlier, she sat down with ABC News senior national correspondent Matt Gutman for her first television interview. Tammy continues to claim that she and her husband, Sidney, were not involved in Heather's disappearance. The hour also includes interviews with Heather's friends Jessica Cooke, Jodi Davenport and Deborah Woods, who speak out on Heather's relationship with Sidney. "20/20" airs on Friday, Oct. 26 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
Twenty-year-old Heather was working at a local Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, restaurant when she met Sidney, a 38-year-old husband and father of three. The two became romantically involved; but in October 2013, prosecutors say Tammy UNCOVERED the affair. According to Heather's friends, Tammy began to text and call Heather, warning her to stay away from her husband and family. Tammy denies these allegations. On the evening of Dec. 17, 2013, Heather seemed to be moving on from Sidney and was out on a date with someone new. Then, according to authorities, after a phone conversation with Sidney later that night, Heather got into her car and drove to a remote river landing. Authorities say that at the same time a truck that matched THE ONE owned by Sidney and Tammy was captured on surveillance cameras driving toward the same landing and then was seen driving back a short time later. Sidney has since been convicted of obstruction of justice and was tried for kidnapping, but a mistrial was declared. Sidney is still facing charges on kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap. Tammy has been sentenced to two 30-year sentences in prison, served concurrently, in connection to Heather's disappearance.
"20/20" is anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach. David Sloan is senior executive producer.
