Moore ran a theatre and cinema  in North Wales, apparently fixating on Jason Voorhies from the F13 movie series.  He murdered and mutilated 4 men in 1995, the bodies found near small rural towns.Moore's first victim was Henry Roberts, 56, stabbed to death at his home in Anglesey in September 1995. His next victim, Edward Carthy, 28, was stabbed and buried in a forest after meeting Moore in a gay bar. Keith Randles, 49, a traffic safety manager, was similarly killed as he slept in his caravan at road works on the A5 in Anglesey in November 1995.  Mr Randles had begged to know why he was being attacked after Moore dragged him from his caravan and started stabbing him. Moore had replied: "For fun." Moore later told police there was "a certain enjoyment" in the killing. The last man to die was Tony Davies, 40, a married father of two. He was stabbed at a beach near Abergele on the north Wales coast in December 1995.
At his trial, it was claimed that Moore attacked more than 50 other men in what the judge described as "20 years of terror". Moore claimed the killings were carried out by a fictitious homosexual lover named Jason, after the masked murderer from the Friday the 13th horror films.

He received four life sentences but the home secretary later recommended that he should never be released. At Leeds Crown Court on Thursday 27th April 2000, Moore listed property he claimed had been sold by two of his former friends after he was arrested. Chester District Judge Charles Newman awarded Moore £12,842 damages for the loss of the possessions ranging from antique furniture, 900 cinema posters and jewellery to Wellington boots, cans of food and garden gnomes. He was also awarded costs.
