Missing Woman Strangled To Death; No Bond For Husband

A medical examiner says a woman found buried behind her Onslow County home was strangled to death.

Virginia Moll's body was found Tuesday night in a shallow grave. She was last seen October 28th and reported missing November 1st by her sister.

Sheriff Ed Brown says the autopsy indicates that something was placed around the 21-year-old's neck.

Her husband, Soyer Moll, made his first appearance Thursday morning.

The 20-year-old Moll was denied bond. His next court appearance was set for December 3.

Moll was formally charged Tuesday with murdering his wife and burying her body in a shallow grave behind their Onslow County home.

Onslow County deputies have now charged the husband of a missing woman with her murder.

Soyer Moll was formally charged late Tuesday night with the murder of Virginia Moll.

Deputies say the husband let them to a shallow grave about a quarter of a mile into the woods behind the couple's home on Sandridge Road.

Wednesday, Virginia Moll's family spoke to WITN. "When I did see them, they just seemed like they were so happy and I was so happy for her because she finally had the life she wanted." said Pamela Ladd, the murder victim's aunt.

The Hubert couple was married last year, and their baby daughter had her first birthday on the same day her mother's body was found by lawmen. "This will be a horrible birthday for the rest of her life to realize what now she doesn't realize, but 2, 3, 4 and older, every birthday she'll remember that her mother was found in a shallow grave," Sheriff Ed Brown told WITN.

Brown says he became concerned when the mother was reported missing by her sister and not by her husband. The sheriff says the husband told them he was coming into Jacksonville to file separation papers from his wife and planned to report her missing then. "I mean, you could have left her she could have left you, why did you have to take her life?" asks Pamela Ladd.

Soyer Moll is in jail without bond.

    I am Virginia's aunt our family is going through Hell. My prayer is that the investergators will continue to work on his case to uncover every thing. And God's will be done to insure the safety and best life for Naomi. What was done to Virginia was not a quick job and took some thinking of what was to be done next. There for he was thinking. Was not smart,but was thinking, because he would have walked away in the first place instead of killing her. The way he killed her it took her some time to die he could have stopped himself but he choose not to. That in my book should be punishable by death. It is not fair to Naomi that she will never have another chance to be held by her mom and will miss out on all the mother daughter things in like that make life so great. But for her to grow up having to visit her dad in jail too. Jail is no place for a child to go to have visits. If he would have let her live he and her could both visit and love Naomi for life.

    I am so sad to read this that I feel physically ill. Virginia sometimes worked in this area and I met her on more than one occassion. She was a beautiful spirit and talked so lovingly of her family. I can't believe she's gone. This is a true tragedy. I pray she rests in peace.

    i Have know Soyer for number of years i find it so hard to belive he was capable to do something like this, Everyone keeps saying how much virginia's family is suffering over there lost. I'm not defending Soyer or his actions. everyone seems to forget that both familys have suffer a lost Virginia family lost a family mamber thru this crime, and Soyer's family lost a son because of this crime. If Soyer is found in a court of law that he did take her life then even as someone whom have seen him grow up , i still feel he should get what the max law allows for his crime. as for whom should have the child i feel that DSS should step in and make that decision.I belive both familys love and care about the child as for Virginia i only have know her since they got married last Sept 2008 but from what i saw they both love and care for each other and there baby They nither one wanted to stay with his family long as no husband and wife wants to live with family long I am sorry for both Familys lost

    virginia was my best friend and will always be in heart and memories. the only problem they ever argued about was the fact that she didn't want to live there anymore. other than that she was so happy to be a wife and to be a mother. she was planning her daughter's first birthday party that week. i will make sure her daughter knows her mother and how much she loved her daughter and even though she's gone now she still loves that beautiful little girl. she will know her mother no matter what. i feel as being one of her best friends close like family that it's what i can do for her to make sure her daughter knows her and knows everything. R.I.P. VIRGINIA TILLMAN! YOU WILL BE MISSED GREATLY AND NEVER FORGOTTEN NO MATTER WHAT!

    I am not getting into a pissing contest with you about how well I knew Soyer (which is how you spell his name by the way). I do however know the grandparents very well and once again you are attacking two people who you forget did not kill Virgina. They did however give her and the baby a roof over their head for the last year or so. No one ever thought that this horrible tragedy would have occured including Virginia or I don't believe she would have still been with him. I am not suggesting in any way that her side of the family is not capable of taking care of Naomi, I AM saying that the two people who have her now love her with all their hearts. They are good to her and they were good to Virgina.

    I agree Ashley. I know Amanda and how much she loved her niece Naomi.

    If you do not know Pam or Amanda than there is no way that you could say that the baby would not be better with one of them. As a member of the Tillman family I feel the baby needs to be with people that will tell her about her mother and always make sure she knows her mother loved her more than life. To me who could do that better than the people that knew virgina best and loved unconditonally and that is Pam and Amanda.
