Detectives confirmed to NBC 5 that the homicide appears to be an isolated incident. Officers do not think robbery was a motive.
“I can’t imagine anyone wanting to harm her in anyway,” said Donna Ross, a longtime friend of Moses.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Ross said she learned about Moses’ death on social media.
“I couldn’t believe it! She’s 43-years-old and then it said 'homicide,'" she said. "I was just shocked."
Moses’ ex-husband, Bob Moses, said the two had been divorced for about two years, but that they’ve always maintained a strong friendship. He said he and his son are fully cooperating with investigators and are devastated by the family’s loss.
A family friend confirmed that Moses recently had a boyfriend, but it is unknown if investigators have spoken to him.
Neighbors said they are praying police find the person responsible.
“Just said a prayer for her family. It’s all we can do," neighbor David Stafford said. "I hope they find out what happened and who actually did it.”
