What to Know

  • The body of 22-year-old Alan Moore was found in an abandoned home on April 1
  • Police said at the time his death appeared criminal, but they didn't release additional details
  • Months later, three people have been arrested on murder and kidnapping charges

A woman and two men face murder and kidnapping charges in the death of a 22-year-old man whose body was found in an abandoned home on Long Island more than three months ago.

Dequanna Bates, 24, Joshua Nickens, 25 and Larry Dennis, who all live at the same address in Bellport, were arrested Wednesday in the death of Alan Moore.

Moore's body was discovered April 1 when a man seeking shelter from bad weather went into an abandoned home on Long Island Avenue in Wyandanch.

Investigators said at the time that Moore's death appeared criminal, but did not elaborate on a possible cause of death.

Investigators have yet to provide details on the suspects' alleged involvement in the slaying, and details on the relationship between the victim and the housemates weren't clear. 

The suspects are expected to be arraigned later Wednesday. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.
