Pasco County: Sheriff Searching For Body Of Kathleen Moore, Collin Knapp Arrested

PASCO COUNTY, FL. – Pasco Sheriff deputies have made an arrest related to the missing person case of Kathleen Moore.

Sheriff Chris Nocco said Monday during a press conference that the suspect, Collin Knapp, 30, has been arrested in connection with this case, and is not cooperating with investigators

Knapp was Moore’s boyfriend.

Through investigations, blood and other DNA evidence were located, which FDLE’s biology lab identified as Moore’s. This, along with inconsistent statements from Knapp led to probable cause for his arrest.

“We wish that Collin would provide us the information of where Kathleen is, and we delayed this press conference because just arrested him this afternoon,” said Nocco. “We’re hoping he was going to provide information during his interview.”

Nocco said investigators were practically “begging” Knapp for information on the location of Moore’s body.

“We have to find justice for Kathleen and her family,” added Nocco.

Moore, 34, was last seen on Nov. 29 around 1 a.m. in the Carmel Ave. area of New Port Richey, wearing a long black shirt, black jeans, and black shoes.

Though normally very active on social media and communicative with friends and family, Moore was silent after Monday early morning. After she missed work and school, friends and family reported her missing.

Moore was originally reported missing to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office early Tuesday, Nov. 30 and the case was adopted by PSO late Tuesday after it was determined that she was last seen in Pasco in the area Carmel Ave. in New Port Richey. Moore was missing from early Monday morning and PSO began their investigation late Tuesday once PSO adopted the case. Though normally very active on social media and communicative with friends and family, Moore was silent after Monday early morning. After she missed work and school, friends and family reported her missing.
