Date: September 13, 1983
Time: 8:44 a.m.
Place of Occurrence: 1900 block Ne 5 Avenue, Pompano Beach

  • Unknown

Description of Incident:

The decomposing remains of an unidentified woman found murdered in Pompano Beach nearly 25 years ago have been identified as Tina Moore.

Hoping to generate new leads in the cold case, Broward Sheriff’s Office Homicide Detective Frank Ilarraza, with assistance from FDLE, resubmitted the victim’s fingerprints to the FBI in April 2008. Earlier this week, Det. Ilarraza got the call he was hoping for. Through more advanced fingerprint analysis, the victim was positively identified as 22-year-old Tina Moore.

Shortly before 9 a.m. on September 13, 1983, Moore’s body was found in a wooded area in the 1900 block of NE 5 Avenue in Pompano Beach. Pompano Beach police officers believed the victim had been dead for about three days. She was never reported missing, and no one ever came forward to identify her. At the time of her death, Moore was wearing three small silver earrings - a three-leaf clover in her right ear and a horseshoe and mushroom in her left ear. Moore also had a homemade tattoo of a bunny head on her lower right abdomen.

BSO homicide detectives believe that Moore may have been a dancer at an area gentlemen’s club and resided in the Pompano Beach area at the time of her death. Now that the murder victim has been positively identified, BSO investigators are eager to solve this case. Anyone with information on Tina Moore’s murder, her activities and associates or her family is urged to call BSO Homicide Detective Frank Ilarraza at (954) 321-4210 or call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (954) 493-TIPS or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
