10TV has learned prosecutors have filed felony charges against a man Chillicothe Police say may have information on several missing Ross County women.
39-year-old Ernest J. Moore was indicted on Friday on charges of felonious assault and kidnapping. A police report shows on July 24, a man told police he went to buy drugs at an address on West 5th Street in Chillicothe. The man told officers Moore, aka Dollar Bill, came out and began assaulting him and bound him with duct tape.
The victim told police Moore forced him into a duffel bag and took him to a house on South Mulberry Street, where he was punched, kicked, assaulted with a broom, burned with lighter fluid, silverware heated from the stove, and boiling water. Police say they observed burns on the victim’s face, torso, buttocks, and genitals.
Once other individuals in the house had gone to sleep, he was able to wrestle free and leave the residence. Although naked, he went to another residence and contacted the Chillicothe Police Department.
“It's like stuff you would see in a third world country,” said Chillicothe Police Chief Keith Washburn. “It's like I could see somebody who's a member of ISIS doing something like that, but not an American citizen.”
Moore turned himself in to the Chillicothe Police Thursday evening after police issued a nationwide warrant. Investigators say they believe Moore could have information on the disappearances and deaths of six Ross County women.
Investigators are not calling him a suspect, or even a person of interest in these disappearances and deaths, but they believe he has information that could be key in solving them. Chillicothe Police believe more potential victims may come forward after Moore's arrest.
Moore is from Columbus, but investigators say he often visits Ross County and is involved in drug and sex-trafficking.
Police believe Moore knew the missing women and could have information that could help their investigation.
