Adams then reportedly placed the injured young woman in her car with the intention of transporting her to a nearby hospital. Police documents state that somewhere along the line Adams had a change of heart, panicked, and hightailing it to her own home. Allegedly, the 45-year-old mom somehow thought the crime would get pinned on her, which was why she decided not to seek medical attention for Moore.

The cops discovered Moore’s lifeless body behind the wheel of her car in Adam’s driveway.

According to Moore’s family, she was a victim in a violent relationship. The family is hopeful that the young woman’s death will serve as a wake-up call for those who are victims of domestic violence.

Moore’s cousin, Rashaunda relayed a poignant message to Adams. “You’re just as guilty because a mother is supposed to teach their child something different. She never taught him anything.”
