Marcus Moore and Kerry "Bud" Witt were both shot once in the head and murdered while sitting at the kitchen table in Moore´s residence at 336 Jones Road Clay City, Ky. This is in Powell County, in the Morehead Post District.

Marcus Moore and Kerry "Bud" Witt were found deceased by some friends at the residence on Tuesday March 10, 1998 around 1044 hours. It was determined that Moore and Witt were both shot with the same handgun, which was determined to have been a 9mm.
