“No one deserves to go out like he did,” Hooper said.
Hooper said her family isn’t sure who would want to hurt Moore. He worked at an automobile body shop, she said, and wasn’t known to be a part of a criminal organization.
“We have no idea. We have no idea why anyone would do anything to him,” she said.
The last time she saw her brother was about six months ago when their mother was in the hospital, Hooper said.

She asked that anyone with information about the case come forward and talk to police. The Springfield Police Division can be reached at 937-327-7680.
Springfield police didn’t return a phone call Wednesday seeking comment on the investigation and Clark County Coroner Dr. Richard Marsh said no new updates were available.
He said his office was waiting on an autopsy report and a toxicology report.
The family plans to cremate Moore and hold a memorial for him in lieu of a funeral, Hooper said, adding that the they are considering setting up a Go Fund Me account for the expenses.
