Nearly 15 Years Later, Family Seeks Answers for Son's Death

Almost 15 years after his death, the family of Andrew Moore has not given up hope.

On April 25th, Moore would have celebrated his 41st birthday. But he was found murdered in his San Diego apartment nearly 15 years ago Wednesday, found bludgeoned to death in September of 2000.

His family now lives in Pennsylvania, but flew in to San Diego to help ask for the public’s help for information in the case, which has been cold for more than a decade now.

“That’s why we’re here; we’re here to ask you to help us find out who did this to Andy so that we know why they did it,” his mother said. “That won’t bring Andy back but perhaps that it will lay our hearts to rest, why it happened.”

His family gave out a memorial scholarship at City College, where Andy used to be a student.

“We've met an array of wonderful young people and we always go home to Pennsylvania thinking something positive is happening out of this,” his mother, Rita Moore, said.

Moore’s 26-year-old body was found in the bedroom of his Cortez Hill apartment on Ash and 8th streets. His Suzuki motorcycle was stolen and later found on the 1100 block of 24th street in Golden Hill.

At the time, Moore was working as a chef at a Gaslamp restaurant and was a full-time student at City College.

There is a $56,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information should call the San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
