Kathleen's boyfriend Collin Knapp, 30, is arrested for second-degree murder.
During a press conference on Monday evening, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said the office had delayed addressing the public in the hopes of gaining information from Knapp.
"We're hoping he was going to provide information during his interview," Nocco said on Monday evening.
"But as one of our detectives described to us, he's very cold even when we're begging with him to tell us where her body is. He won't give us information."
Nocco said deputies found clothing with blood evidence of Moore's at a county landfill that came from a dumpster at the Harold Seltzer's Steakhouse – where Knapp works.
