David Lawrence

Police are searching for a suspect considered armed and dangerous following the murder of a Central Indiana mother.

David Lawrence, 31, of Indianapolis, is wanted in connection with the murder of 26-year-old Kelly Moss.

Moss’ body was found wrapped in a blanket in a remote area of Morgan County.

“She had the greatest heart,” said Moss’ cousin, who did not want to be identified since Lawrence is still at-large.

“He was her biggest downfall,” she said of Lawrence.

The cousin told Fox59 that Moss began dating Lawrence about a year ago and that he was both mentally and physically abusive. She said the family knew something was wrong.

“A lot of things have happened in her life in the last year and a half. She’s kind of gone down a different path than anybody would’ve ever thought that she would.”

About two weeks ago, she said Moss broke away from Lawrence and moved in with her. That’s when, she revealed, Lawrence began sending threatening text messages.

“He said ‘I love her. I have nothing left to lose. If you don’t bring her to me I will come and (expletive) kill all of you.'”

Last Wednesday, Moss disappeared. Police records reveal Lawrence told someone he had shot and killed her inside of a car.

Moss’ cousin has no doubt Lawrence is the killer, because she said, Moss eerily pointed the finger at him on several occasions.

“She told me if something happened to her, it was David Lawrence.”

Police describe Lawrence as 6-feet tall, 280 pounds and bald with a goatee. He is considered armed and dangerous. If you spot him, do not approach him. Simply call 911 and report his location.

“To just be shot in the head and thrown out of a car somewhere, that shouldn’t have been the end of her book,” said Moss’ cousin. “He can’t run and he will be found.”
