LAWRENCE, Ind. (August 17, 2015) – A second person has been arrested after a woman’s body was found at Fort Harrison State Park last Wednesday.

Police arrested Robert Wayne Moore on Monday. He is accused of helping his dad dump his stepmom's body in the woods, and he is charged with obstruction of justice.

This is the second arrest in the case. Police arrested his father, Robert L. Moore, last Friday after he confessed to murdering his wife, Tina M. Moore, and dumping her body in the park.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office said Tina was asphyxiated.

Friends and family of Tina Moore gathered at the American Legion Post 495 for a celebration of life memorial service.

"I's really hard to wrap your head around somebody who you saw Tuesday night is now dead," said Rick Hodge, First Commander of Post 495 and a friend of Tina's.

Those in attendance made it clear that the goal of the night was to remember Tina for the positive influence she had on so many lives rather than focus on Robert L. Moore and his son.

"She was a wonderful person and she will never be forgotten," said Tonie Wilson, a long time friend of Tina Moore's.

This is an ongoing investigation, and we will continue to update the story with more information as it becomes available.

NOTE: We previously reported Robert W. Moore was Tina Moore's son, but we later found out he is actually her stepson.
