Moore was last seen about a week ago sitting on his front porch by a San Miguel County Road and Bridge employee. The employee, concerned because he had not seen Moore since that last sighting, called the sheriff’s office on April 9. Sheriff’s Deputies entered Moore’s trailer home, where they found Moore’s badly decomposed body, surrounded by his 20 dogs that lived in the trailer with him. Next of kin has been notified. There is no evidence of criminal conduct in this case; the manner and cause of death will be determined by the San Miguel County Coroner.
