The body of Kathleen Moore has been found by police

Pasco sheriff: Murdered Largo woman was victim of domestic violence; boyfriend remains in jail

Eight days after Kathleen Moore went missing, Pasco County deputies found her body Tuesday in a wooded area behind her boyfriend’s house where she was last seen.

The sheriff’s office said the woman, Kathleen Moore, was a domestic violence victim. Her boyfriend, Collin Knapp, is charged with second-degree murder

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said deputies got a call from someone around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday that they smelled decomposition in the woods behind Carmel Avenue in New Port Richey. They ended up finding the body of Moore. Knapp’s home was nearby.

"She was about 50 yards northeast of Collin Knapp’s home, and so this was a heavy brush area. She was actually covered," Sheriff Nocco explained. "You can almost describe she was definitely covered on purpose."

A Pasco County court complaint said detectives found bedding with a "significant amount of blood on it." The sheriff said Knapp tried to get rid of evidence in a restaurant dumpster at his job at Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse in Port Richey.

Domestic violence survivor advocates in Tampa Bay said it’s a common problem that people still don’t talk about. But, there are legal, mental health, financial help, and more available services to victims.

The CASA’s 24-hour domestic violence hotline is 800-500-1119, and Sunrise of Pasco County’s domestic and sexual violence center hotline is 352-521-3120.
