Aliza Sherman's attorney's former office searched in connection with her murder

CLEVELAND - NewsChannel5 was the first to learn of a new development in the case of murdered Cleveland Clinic nurse Aliza Sherman.

Sources tell NewsChannel5's Kristin Volk that a search warrant was executed at the offices of Stafford & Stafford located at 55 Erieview Plaza suite 500 Monday night by FBI, BCI and Cuyahoga County Sheriff's deputies.

"It makes me feel good that something is being brought to the surface," said Maria Zoul, a good friend of Aliza Sherman. "I pray justice will be done very soon."

The BCI sent their Cyber Crimes Unit and the FBI sent their Violent Crimes Task Force, the agencies said.

The search warrant was directly in connection with the murder of Aliza Sherman, 53.

Sherman was brutally stabbed 11 times while walking to her attorney’s office on March 24, 2013.

Stafford & Stafford is where Aliza Sherman's attorney Gregory Moore worked . His name is no longer listed on the practice’s website.

The search warrant took 18 hours to execute. Law enforcement seized "tons" of evidence which included shredded documents. It was part of a complex investigation that encompassed several individuals.

Moore was indicted for making bomb threats to the old Cuyahoga County courthouse on Lakeside Avenue in 2012.

In Sherman's case, police released surveillance video of who they think to be the suspect.
