Couple Killed: Lori Moore And Boyfriend Killed At High School Reunion
June 16, 2014 by staff
Couple Killed: Lori Moore And Boyfriend Killed At High School Reunion, Moore, 33, and her new love Lance Griffel, 36, were attending an East Peoria Community High School reunion in Illinois for the class of 1999 when James Moore, 40, calmly walked in to the Fifth Quarter Sports Bar and Pizzeria and shot them both in the head.
An off-duty FBI officer then shot the gunman dead in front of about 100 startled witnesses at around 8pm.
Ms Moore and Griffel were rushed to hospital where they were pronounced dead.
Ms Moore had filed for divorce from her husband in March last year and it was finalised two months later.
East Peoria Police Chief Dick Ganschow told the Pekin Times that had it not been for the quick thinking of the FBI officer, the situation could have been even more tragic.
“It’s very difficult to say. You can play the ‘what if’ game over and over again, but I think it’s pretty clear in his case the presence of this officer and his ability to take very quick and very decisive action prevented a further tragedy,” he said.
Ms Moore was clearly smitten by her new beau, posting on Facebook earlier this month a picture of the two and calling him Sir Lancelot.
