JEFFERSON CITY - Jefferson City Police called off the search Tuesday for evidence in the disappearance of Christopher Cray at the Allied Waste landfill. Captain Doug Shoemaker said "tissue-based" evidence recovered from the landfill has been sent in for forensic evaluation. Shoemaker said the search could resume at any point should investigators deem it necessary.

Court documents released to KOMU 8 News earlier this month said Adam Moore-Duncan took a trash cart from a home on Boonville Road and was observed on video May 22 entering the landfill at 8:15 a.m. That's two days after 23-year-old Christopher Cray went missing from a Jefferson City Schnucks parking lot. The Jefferson City Police officer's sworn statement said Cray's body was placed in the trash cart and the corpse was disposed of at the customer self-serve drop off at the landfill.

Tuesday, Shoemaker also said detectives on the case are following other leads but cannot disclose the content or context of the information they are looking into. He said the evidence found at the landfill was directly related to the homicide investigation but would not say what that evidence is. 

Police continue to investigate Cray's disappearance as a homicide.
