Police in Durham, NC have issued a warrant Thursday for the arrest of Peter L. Moses, Jr.
Moses, 27, is wanted for questioning in the disappearance of Jadon Higganbothan, 6, and Antoinetta McKoy, 28. Authorities issued the arrest warrant after Moses failed to appear in court Wednesday on unrelated charges.
The scheduled court appearance is in connection to three charges of writing worthless checks in 2005 and a 2006 charge of discharging a firearm within city limits.
In 1999, Moses was charged with assault of a handicapped person. The charge was dismissed because the victim was unable to be located.
In 2004, Moses was charged with first degree sexual offense and was later convicted of assault on a female. As a result, he was put on supervised probation. He was also charged with writing a worthless check in 2004.
In 2005, Moses’s record includes two charges of assault on a female and one charge of simple assault.
Durham police records show arrest reports were issued for Moses in 2007 for violating probation and in 2006 for carrying a concealed weapon and discharging a firearm.
Durham police searched woods Tuesday near the development where Higganbothan and McKoy lived with Moses, the alleged cult leader of “The Black Hebrews.”
