My prayers and thoughts are with the family of TJ Murray.

I hope TJ is found safe. Hopefully, the surveillance videos from nearby businesses will generate some leads for the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

TJ has been missing for a week. His truck was in the parking lot of the Sports Bar and his phone was found in a nearby ditch.

His family, who he kept in regular contact with, have not heard from him since his dad last spoke to him via phone on 10-19-11. TJ's friends have not heard from him either.

This does not look good. MCSO needs leads in this case.

Texas EquuSearch will resume their search at daybreak.

Where are you, TJ?

Missing college student appears to have vanished without a trace

Thursday, October 27, 2011

by Kevin Quinn
KTRK - Houston, Tx


HOUSTON (KTRK) -- It's now been more than a week since a Sam Houston State University student was last seen and although investigators at this point say there are no signs of foul play in TJ Murray's disappearance, they do say this case is unusual.

TJ Murray hasn't been heard from since early on October 19. He was seen last at a sports bar. Since that time, there's not a trace of him. His father says it's as if he vanished.

In the eight days since TJ was last seen, his father has struggled to maintain a singular focus.

~~~~~~~

I am very familiar with The Woodlands and the area from where TJ was last seen. This is not an area with dumpy Sports Bars. It is hard to believe that TJ could go missing from this area.

Hopefully, MCSO will be able to recover some activity on surveillance videos/tape in the area from the surrounding businesses. At least something to generate leads!

Friends of T.J. Murray, the 24-year-old Oak Ridge High School graduate and Sam Houston State University student who went missing Oct. 19, are planning a vigil for him from 6-8:30 p.m. Saturday on the football field at Oak Ridge High School.

"I know everyone's going to want to come," said Kendra Lipscomb, one of the vigil organizers and a friend of Murray's since elementary school.

Justice4All, have you made adjustments on RC so we can embed TV station videos with "script" at the beginning and end of the embed code?

I didn't make any adjustments, but I'm glad it worked. There might be a slight difference from the script codes that don't work and the one you posted above.

Thanks for the info, Justice. Even though I see "script" in the embed code, I still try to post the TV station videos and when I preview, there is no video.

Was I ever surprised when I previewed the one above, saw the video, then I clicked on Send. Video posted and it works!

I thought you did something to the site to make the "script" code videos post! Like magic!

You are welcome Ann. I also use preview to test any video with an embed code, and if it works I go ahead and post it.

I got confirmation today, from a reliable source, that TJ Murray was 23 years old when he went missing. His birthday is in November.

TJ's age has been reported as 23 and 24 by media sources as this case unfolded.

Vigil for missing SHSU student brings hope, but still no leads

The Oak Ridge High School football field was aglow Saturday night with family, friends and supporters lighting candles, waving glow sticks and praying for TJ Murray's safe return home.

I continue to monitor TJ's case closely.

There have been no main stream media updates yesterday or today.

As this case unfolded, an earlier article indicated there was an incident in the bar involving TJ. There were no details. No other info about that incident has been disclosed.

Rumors abound regarding the incident but I am not a proponent of the rumor mill.

It would not do this thread or the reputation of Reality Chatter justice to post rumors. Reality Chatter is not about posting rumors.

So . . . I will patiently wait for more info on this case via main stream media or perhaps a Press Conference by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

Prayers for TJ and his family!

A reliable source has indicated to me that the search by Texas EquuSearch, with volunteers,
on Thursday, 11-3-11, did not yield any thing.

There is no search planned for Friday, 11-4-11.

There might possibly be one on Saturday. If so, it will be posted on Texas EquuSearch's site.

Leads are needed in this case!

Apparently there will not be a TES search this Saturday for TJ Murray.

I just checked TES' site and there is no info posted about a search for 11-5-11.

No news on TJ yet! He is still missing.

I guess LE do not have any leads that would result in an organized search of land area for TJ.

Good news! TJ's candle site at Gratefulness.org has 34 candles lit! Two pages! 17 hours ago Hanna Elizabeth McDonald posted the link to TJ's candle group, TJM, on the Facebook page set up for TJ:

I do not do Facebook and could not post the Link. The Facebook for TJ is open to the public to read but unless you are on Facebook, you can not post a comment.

It is a beautiful Facebook page set up for TJ. Tightly controlled, monitored and therefore, not loaded with rumors or crude comments. Definitely done with class!

Nothing new on TJ!

I monitor our local news from Houston in hopes there will be info about TJ or the status of the case but there is nothing.

A press conference regarding the status of the case would be nice.

Some one has to know something.

In the comments under some of the mainstream media articles, there were comments made about what could have happened but I don't post rumors and there is no verification if the person(s) making the comment is legit! For all I know, the person could be in another country acting like they live in The Woodlands, Tx area.

This is so odd that the local mainstream media have just quit covering this case. I bet if this was an attractive female college student, there would still be media coverage.

Prayers and thoughts for TJ Murray and his family!

On Saturday, November 19, 2011, it will be a month that TJ Murray went missing.

There is no media coverage on this case any longer. I find that unusual for the greater Houston area.

Perhaps on the one month anniversary of TJ gone missing there will be an update regarding the status of the case.

In the interim, special prayers for TJ and especially for his family.

It's been one month since T.J. Murray, a Sam Houston State University student, went missing, and his disappearance has left more questions than answers.

TJ Murray

It's been one month since T.J. Murray, a Sam Houston State University student, went missing, and his disappearance has left more questions than answers.

While the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says no physical searches are underway, the search is still very active.

"I touch it everyday before I go to work," said T.J.'s father, Tom Murray, while putting his hand on T.J.'s car.

Month Passes Since Disappearance Of Central Texas University Student

The search for a 24-year-old Central Texas university student who disappeared after leaving a sports bar has produced more questions than answers.

November 17, 2011

KWTX - Waco, Tx




T. J. Murray was last heard from on Oct. 19.
(File)


HUNTSVILLE (November 17, 2011)—Nearly a month has passed since Sam Houston State University student T. J. Murray, 24, disappeared after leaving a sports bar and the search appears to have hit a dead end.

Murray went to the On the Rocks sports bar in Spring with friends after umpiring a Little League game and called his father to tell him he was leaving his father’s truck at the bar while he rode with friends to another club.

He later called his father and told him he’d leave the truck at Oak Ridge High School.

That was on Oct. 19, the last time he was heard from.

Adam, TJ Murray's cousin, is requesting that you please forward the most recent article about TJ Murray to the national media outlets and request they cover TJ's story.

Please take the time to forward this link to national media outlets and your local TV stations. Thank you!

Quoting Adam (11-16-11):

"I am TJ's cousin. If you are reading this story, please consider forwarding it to the national news outlets. He has been gone too long and if it was a pretty young girl this would have made national news from day one. Help us find TJ."

This is the Link to the story Adam is referencing:

I just finished sending e-mails to the News Director/Staff of mainstream media in the greater Houston, Tx area requesting an update to TJ Murray's missing person case.

In addition, I sent e-mails to reporters that authored previous articles and requested an update.

E-mails sent to the following media on 11-18-11:

The Houston Chronicle

KTRK (Ch 13 - ABC)

KPRC (Ch 2 - NBC)

KHOU (Ch 11 - CBS)

KRIV (Ch 26 - FOX)

Hopefully, at least one of these media sources will do an update on TJ Murray! It would be nice if they all did an update!

If any one reads this, please send an e-mail to the Houston media and request an update on the
TJ Murray (missing - 10-19-11) story. Thank you!

I have sent e-mails to over 100 friends requesting they send an e-mail to the mainstream media in Houston, Tx requesting an update to TJ Murray's story.

Over the week-end, I hope to send e-mails to the national media regarding TJ Murray. I wish I could devote hours to this case but I have limited time due to other local obligations.

Family of missing student ‘heartbroken’ without him

Posted: Saturday, November 19, 2011 12:00 am

By Anna Waugh - Houston Community Newspapers
The Courier of Montgomery County - Conroe, Tx




TJ Murray


As the holidays draw near and his son’s birthday approaches, Tom Murray struggles with the few leads in the case of his missing son, TJ.

It’s been a month since the father and son were in contact in the early morning of Oct. 19 when TJ called his father to inform him he would not drive his truck after an evening of drinks with friends. The next morning, Tom found his truck in the parking lot of the On The Rox bar on Sawdust Road.

While TJ’s cell phone was later found in a nearby ditch, all investigators have clear is that the 24-year-old had umpired at an Oak Ridge Woodlands Area Little League game on Oct. 18 before drinking with friends. An umpire with ORWALL and a student studying business and psychology at Sam Houston State University, TJ seemed to simply vanish after a friend returned from the restroom and he was nowhere in sight, Tom Murray said.
