8/14/2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sex Crimes detectives today charged Christopher M. Murray, 49, of Reelfoot Court, with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated robbery for sexually assaulting a 43-year-old Hohenwald woman last Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the Plus Park Boulevard area at 9:10 a.m. on August 9th after a resident reported hearing a woman screaming for help. Officers located the woman who explained that her car had broken down and that she had checked into a Murfreesboro Pike motel while it was being repaired. She walked from the motel to a market last Sunday and was heading back to the motel when, she said, a man subsequently identified as Murray pulled up in his Kia minivan and offered her a ride. She reported that he drove her behind a church on Plus Park Boulevard, pulled a knife, sexually assaulted her and robbed her of a cell phone.

Video from surveillance cameras in the area greatly aided in the identification of Murray, who is jailed in lieu of $200,000 bond.

Anyone with information as to any other criminal activity involving Murray is asked to contact the MNPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 615-862-7540.
