Brad Brisbin murder 11/09/1990 West Yellowstone, MT *Larry Moore convicted; sentenced to 50 years in prison*

Larry Moore was charged with deliberate homicide, following the disappearance of Brad Brisbin. Brisbin, a West Yellowstone restaurant owner, was last seen November 9, 1990. Rene Brisbin, Brisbin’s wife, testified that her husband told her that Moore had called him on the morning of November 9th, and asked Brisbin to meet him at Bair’s truckstop because he had sold his pickup and camper and needed a ride back to West Yellowstone.

Brisbin went to the high school where he was employed as a part-time teacher. He told the principal that he needed the day off to deal with a screwed up friend. Two people testified that they saw Brisbin driving up Gallatin Canyon the morning of November 9th. Both testified they saw nothing unusual with Brisbin’s driving. Brisbin has not been seen since the morning of November 9, 1990.

That afternoon, Moore drove his pickup with his camper back to West Yellowstone. Shortly before 1:00 p.m. on November 9, 1990, Moore called his construction shop and asked Jerry Hillier, one of Moore’s employees, to warm up the backhoe. Moore arrived at the shop at approximately 1:00 p.m., and left the shop with the backhoe at approximately 1:30 p.m. Mr. Hillier testified that he saw the backhoe parked in the construction yard at 3:00 p.m. Mr. Moore, however, did not return to the shop until 5:00 p.m.

That evening Moore began to tell people that Brisbin had climbed into a car on Interstate 90, with a woman driver. Moore’s story concerning that morning’s events changed considerably over the course of time.

Moore became a suspect in the case, and police obtained a search warrant for his pickup and camper. Investigators found three bullet holes under the interior step. They also found a piece of tissue on a curtain in the camper, a bullet with blood on it, and blood stains, which Moore had attempted to obliterate, throughout the camper.

The police confronted Moore with this evidence, and he began to change his story. Moore eventually told the police that Brisbin had been drinking the morning of November 9th, and was waving a gun around in the back of Moore’s camper. Moore struggled to get the gun away from Brisbin and when the gun accidentally discharged, the shot grazed Brisbin’s head. Brisbin was bleeding, and Moore went into the truckstop to get some water to clean up the blood. When he returned, Brisbin was not in the camper, but Moore believed he saw Brisbin on the on-ramp of the interstate getting into a red car.

Law enforcement sent the tissue found on the curtain in the camper to the Montana State Crime Lab, which determined that the tissue was of human origin. The State Crime Lab divided the tissue into three pieces: one portion was sent to Cellmark Diagnostics (Cellmark), one to Analytic Genetic Testing Center (AGTC), and the State Crime Lab retained one portion. Cellmark, a laboratory which performs deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) analysis, conducted restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis (RFLP) typing on DNA extracted from the muscle tissue.

AGTC tested the muscle tissue using GM/KM analysis. GM/KM markers are an inherited variation of antibody molecules found in blood serum, human tissue and body fluids, which have a significant variation between populations so that, for instance, some combinations of markers are only found in the Caucasian population, and some in the Afro-American population. GM and KM markers have been used since the 1960’s to identify and individualize human blood for forensic applications. The results of the GM/KM analysis confirmed that the muscle tissue was human and the tissue was consistent with having come from the biological father of Brisbin’s children.

While examining blood stains located on the underside of the interior step board, which had been removed from Moore’s camper, a forensic scientist at the Montana State Crime Lab found a small piece of tissue. The tissue was determined to be cerebellum tissue, which is located at the base of the brain, under the skull bone. The State Crime Lab embedded the brain tissue in a paraffin block and sent it to Dr. Cosette Wheeler, at the University of New Mexico Cancer Center, who extracted DNA from the tissue. Dr. Wheeler then sent the processed tissue to AGTC which conducted polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis on the sample tissue. AGTC also conducted PCR analysis on members of the Brisbin family and concluded that the tissue could not be excluded as having come from the biological father of the Brisbin children.

Moore was charged by information on December 17, 1990 with two counts of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and one count of deliberate homicide. Upon Moore’s motion, the District Court severed the tampering with or fabricating physical evidence charges. A jury trial was held October 22 through November 17, 1992, and Moore was found guilty of deliberate homicide.

  1. How can we get a copy of the forensic files tv show that featured this story. We grew up in West Yellowstone and went to school with Brad Brisbon’s kids.
    Thank you
    Tonya

    • Did you ever get a copy of the Forensic Files TV show on Brad Brisbin and Larry Moore? I would also like a copy – even if it is just a bootleg recording. Thank you – Garry Kerr

  2. There was an important piece of evidence in this case that was not discussed. Moore sent a letter to Brisbin’s family, acting as if Brisbin actually wrote the letter, which stated that he left for another woman and he wouldn’t be back. That was a huge part of the evidence against Larry Moore. A little disappointed in the lack of details in this story.

  3. I am an old friend of brad’s son, Jeremiah..wondering if anyone knows how to contact him? Email me

  4. We just got back from a parole hearing for Moore. The remaining remaining was in full force. He was denied parole for 5 years and then will have another review. So in 2014 we will have another hearing. If the moderator of this site would give my email address to Jackie H. I will give her Jeremiah’s address. Thank you so much for the article. There was so much that to be able to write a condensed version, it would be hard to cover all the details. That needs to be a book in my opinion.

  5. any evidence that larry moore had anthing to do with the murders randy woodfeild was convicted of?

  6. I worked for with much fun BRAD @ RENEE’. I also babysat for them when ever they needed me to Mariah was a baby and Parker just a little guy also .I Love Brad and Renee and their children and, was always almost jealous of their fairytale Marriage and Life. They BOTH treated me and my Deceased Daughter Brenda as Family.I would give ANYTHING if ANYONE Can reach Reneee for me .I am on Facebook and,trying to find her .My entire Family is deceased and.after I Buried My Daughter “The LOVE of my Life” I Know how she feels and,PRAY that Larry Moore NEVER SEES sunlight BUT,IF “IT”(he’s nonhuman)does he still has God to answer to !AND SATAN to spend eterinity with THANK GOD.Renee PLEASE help me find you I Miss and Love you and the Kids ,Forever your friend TAMMY RHODES

  7. just caught the end of this story on an episode of body of evidence. since I didn’t get to see the entire episode, I googled the case and came across your blog. I will be thinking of the family on the 9th, coincidentally my fathers birthday. My condolences, and i pray for grace and mercy for the brisbins. Godspeed.

  8. This story is repeated on forensic files on satellite often. Just set recorder for brad brisbane. We went to high school with Larry Moore in placerville ca, it’s always a shock to see a fellow student who was so popular turn out to be a cold blooded murderer. I feel bad for his parents n sisters. They also have pain n suffering from this.
