Details at time of disappearance: Moody was last seen in Ludowici, Georgia on December 4, 2007. That day, she left her job at C&S Construction and visited a friend. at Fort Stewart near Hinesville, Georgia at 4:00 p.m.
Afterwards, she visited another friend in Liberty County, Georgia, then the two women drove to Moody's mobile home at the end of on Smiley Road, a dirt road off Highway 196. Moody's friend helped her unload a dog pen she had just purchased at Anderson's Feed and Seed. She says Moody was behaving normally at the time. The friend left her between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m.
Moody has never been heard from again. Her uncle reported her missing on December 10. Nothing appeared to be amiss inside her home when police checked it. Her purse was inside the residence, and her car was parked undisturbed outside it, and her dogs were in the front yard. There was no indication of foul play at the scene. An extensive search of the local area turned up no indication of her whereabouts.
In June 2019, convicted murderer Kenneth William Lumpkin confessed to Moody's murder. He had been arrested for the murder of another woman in 2010, Lori Arrowood. In 2011, he later pleaded guilty to felony murder and kidnapping in Arrowood's death in order to avoid the death penalty he was sentenced to life in prison instead. A photo of Lumpkin is posted with this case summary.
After his murder arrest, police began investigating him as a possible suspect in Moody's disappearance he had known her. They interviewed him in prison several times, and each time he denied any involvement in her case. In 2019, he agreed to confess to her murder and lead police to her body in exchange for immunity from prosecution in her case.
According to Lumpkin, he strangled Moody while attempting to rape her. He provided an approximate location as to where he'd put her body. Multiple searches of this area have turned up nothing of interest, but police stated his confession had been corroborated and they believe it is true. They stated they don't think anyone else was involved in Moody's death.
Moody's mother, stepfather and son lived in Florida at the time of her disappearance, but they came to Georgia to assist with the investigation. She was in the process of a divorce in 2007, and is described as an independent, self-reliant woman who enjoys country living.
Investigators stated her case would remain open until her remains are located.
