BOYDSVILLE, Okla._ A close friend of the Altus radio DJ who was allegedly killed by his fiancée last week in Kiowa County, says the couple appeared to be madly in love hours before the shooting.
Eric Hinson and his wife, of Norman, shared a meal with Harley Moody and Sandra Woodard around 4 p.m. Jan. 7. Shortly before midnight, Woodard shot Moody multiple times in their Boydsville home, just west of Lone Wolf. Woodard later admitted to police that she was the person who fired the gun.
Hinson says he saw no warning signs and did not think last Tuesday's dinner in Oklahoma City would be the last time he saw his friend of 12 years.
"‘Why? Why me? Why did I get to see him one more time before it happened … going years without seeing him to me being the one that gets to see him the last night'," questions Hinson.
He says ever since Woodard came into his friend's life he has been nothing but happy.
"He bragged about her," recalled Hinson. "She was a trophy, I guess you could say to him. He loved her and bragged about how great it was to be able to come home to her."
Just hours after the two hugged goodbye at Joe's Crabshack, Moody was shot to death by a woman who sat at the same dinner table as him less than eight hours prior.
"How can someone who showed so much love have the audacity to take somebody's life that you supposedly love and was just happy with," said Hinson.
The couple was set to be married in late September, but the wedding was delayed, and Hinson never found out why. He was supposed to be Moody's best man.
"It sounded more like she had doubts in getting married than he did," Hinson pieced together.
Last Tuesday, however, when the two longtime friends reconnected, Moody expressed how much he loved his job as a morning radio host in Altus and was ready for the New Year.
"I hugged him goodbye and he said 2014 was going to be his year ... what me and my wife keeping asking is how can it go from what we saw to that to where she basically murdered him. I mean, how? What happened?"
No information has been released as to the explanation Woodard gave to police for shooting her fiancé. She remains locked up in the Kiowa County Jail on $1 million bond and has not yet been charged for her involved in Moody's death.
