    Details of Disappearance

    Murray was last seen at Rookie’s Sports Bar in the 300 block of Sawdust Road in Spring, Texas at 12:45 a.m. on October 19, 2011. Earlier he'd visited the On the Rocks bar. That night he called his father and said he would return his truck the next day; this is the last time his family heard from him. Murray got into an altercation at Rookie's and was asked to leave. He has never been heard from again. After his disappearance, his cellular phone was found in a ditch near the bar. He left his truck behind in the parking lot of On the Rocks.

    Murray is a graduate of Oak Ridge High School and was a junior at Sam Houston State University at the time of his disappearance, studying business and psychology. He was also the umpire for a local Little League team. Since Murray's disappearance, one of his three younger brothers has died in an accident. Foul play is suspected in his case, which remains unsolved.
