Missing person case evolves into murder

At that time, he claimed not to have seen Yvonne Cavallo since August 17, 2021.

According to a missing person news release issued by the Burlington Police Department on September 15, Cavallo, a 61-year-old white female was last seen in the area of Hanford Road on August 17 at approximately 7:00 p.m.

Police now summarize that as Burlington officers investigated the supposed disappearance, they determined Eric Mosher wasn’t telling the truth.

On Wednesday, September 29, investigators located Cavallo’s remains on Cherry Lane just outside Mebane.

Investigators are awaiting for the medical examiner’s office to confirm a cause of death; a gunshot, however, is not suspected.

Mebane police arrested Mosher and have charged him with second degree murder and concealment of a death and he has been placed in the Alamance County jail under a $500,000 bond.

Police say they consider this is still an active investigation; anyone with further information is asked to call the Mebane Police Department at (919) 563-9031 and speak with investigator Tyler Berry or Lieutenant Adam Cole; or send email correspondence to

According to the Mebane police, the Burlington Police Department, Graham Police Department, and Mebane Police Department investigators worked collaboratively in determining that  Eric Mosher was involved in a dispute with Yvonne Cavallo where Mosher killed and discarded Cavallo’s body.
