Reports coming out of Logan County support that a Medway resident has been arrested on multiple felony sex charges that date back to an alleged incident at Indian Lake.

Murray age 34 is facing charges of rape and gross sexual imposition after he allegedly fondled and sexually assaulted a woman who later went to the office of the Sheriff of Logan County to report the incident.  The report comes from an encounter in a vehicle outside of Froggy’s a bar at the popular summer resort area.  The information is contained in the statement of facts on file with the Bellefontaine Municipal Court.

The incident is reported to have occurred on June 25.

“They came to the bar for day drinking,” said Detective Mike Brugler of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office. “They were soon all intoxicated, except for the driver.”

“The suspect, the victim and the suspect’s wife went to their vehicle and the wife passed out almost immediately,” said Brugler. “The suspect and the victim were alone for only about 5-10 minutes.”

The victim came forward about six weeks after the incident. Brugler said that is not uncommon for rape victims.

Murray was arrested at his workplace and has denied allegations telling investigators that the contact was consensual.  He was being held on $100,000 bond.  His preliminary court appearance in Bellefontaine is scheduled for October 16, 2017.

 

We tried to talk with Murray’s wife, but all she would say is, “my husband is innocent and wouldn’t hurt anyone.”
