COPS said they found “a lot of blood” on clothing found in a dumpster as they look for Kathleen Moore’s body following her boyfriend being charged.
Collin Knapp has been charged with second-degree murder, according to Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco.

Detectives have reportedly been speaking with Knapp, asking him to reveal where Kathleen’s body is.
The blood found on the clothes reportedly matches Moore and allegedly came from a dumpster at Harold Seltzer’s Steakhouse where Knapp works.
Despite Kathleen’s body not being found, cops say the amount of blood was enough to charge Knapp for Kathleen’s murder.
Knapp has been arrested in the past for 10 felonies and nine misdemeanors and has a history of domestic violence against other women.
During a press conference, Nocco described Knapp as being a “cold” individual.
“We’re hoping he was going to provide information during his interview,” Nocco said on Monday evening.
Kathleen was reported missing last week and was last seen around 1 am on November 29 in the Carmel Avenue area of New Port Richey.
Nocco said authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating the 34-year-old’s body. He shared a timeline of events in regards to Kathleen’s last moments.
“On November 28, between 10pm and 11:30pm, Kathleen and Collin left Largo after a night of socializing, hanging out with friends at multiple bars in Largo in Indian Rocks Beach.”
“Kathleen and Colin had been arguing at some of these bars,” Nocco added.
“So it’s 12:30am on November 29 at the 7-11 at Carmel Avenue and Seven Springs Boulevard in Pasco County,” Nocco said. “Colin went to buy cigarettes and he states that Kathleen was in the vehicle.”
He added that deputies attempted to look at video surveillance but couldn’t tell for sure if Moore was indeed in the car, and are still asking the public for help.
Moore is described as being around 5’7″ tall, weighing 120 pounds, and having black hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a long black shirt, black jeans and black shoes when she was last seen.
As her family and friends eagerly await updates, they have conducted several independent searches in the local area, scouring woods and fields in the hunt for traces of Moore.
Anyone with information on Moore’s whereabouts is asked to call the Pasco Sheriff’s Non-Emergency Line at 727-847-8102, option 7.
