Benefit and Reward Fundraiser for TJ Murray:

5-19-2012


If you live in the greater Houston area or beyond, please plan to attend this important benefit and support the efforts of "Bring TJ Murray Home Safe." Thanks!

This benefit is worthy of support. TJ's parents continue to work and unlike some parents/grandparents, they have NOT capitalized off of the fact that their son is missing! Please support the Murray's in their efforts to find their son, TJ.

TJ Murray is a Sam Houston State University (Huntsville, TX) student who went missing under strange circumstances on 10-19-2011. Earlier in the evening, TJ umpired a Little League baseball game. Later he met friends at a Sports Bar in The Woodlands, TX to watch the first baseball game of The World Series and to meet up with a friend who was home after serving in Afghanistan.

If you would like to donate items for the Silent & Live Auctions, please see details below:
~~~


We are in the stages of putting together a benefit in Tj's name. We are looking to raise money for the reward and for community awareness.

If you would like to donate any items for the silent or live auctions or have something in mind, please send Casey Loughridge a message and we will get in touch with you.

Thanks for all the continued prayers and support from everyone.

sitemama, thank you so very much for the reminder. I've been so busy the past few days that I've forgotten to light a candle.

I pray that TJ is found soon. I also remember TJ's family in my prayers.

My heart goes out to TJ's family who love and miss him so.

Hopefully, you will be able to get some of the new members to light a candle for TJ. Thanks, sitemama!

It will soon be 8 months that TJ Murray went missing.

I can not understand why the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office - TX (MCSO) has done very few Press Conferences. If I remember correctly, there was one Presser within days of TJ gone missing.

MCSO needs to hold a Press Conference and reach out to the public for leads.

I wonder if MCSO is still actively working TJ's case. I just can not understand why MCSO has not reached out to the public for leads in TJ's case. It boggles my mind!

TJ needs to be found and brought home!

Investigators now suspect foul play and announced some new information regarding TJ's disappearance. They say TJ and his friend visited two bars that night, leaving TJ's car at the first bar and taking his friend's car to the second bar. They also say that TJ was kicked out of the second bar after getting in a fight with multiple patrons. According to an earlier post by Ann - Tx, TJ's friend must not have seen the fight because he stated that he went to the rest room and came back to find TJ gone, so he assumed that TJ had left.

Investigators: Foul play suspected in 2011 disappearance of SHSU student

Posted: Thu 1:53 PM, Jun 14, 2012

Reporter: KHOU
KBTX (CBS) - Bryan, TX






Investigators now suspect foul play in the disappearance of a 23-year-old Sam Houston State University student who vanished from a sports bar in 2011.

Thomas Charles Murray Jr., also known as "TJ," was last seen in the early morning hours of October 19, 2011.

I am glad to see media coverage for TJ Murray's case. Special thanks to KHOU - Houston and KBTX - Bryan, TX for the most recent coverage.

It took Montgomery County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) 8 months to suspect foul play! Incredible! They should have suspected foul play from day 1.

Perhaps they will now aggressively investigate TJ's case. It is past time for a break in this case.

I think it would be very effective if MCSO would hold a Press Conference regarding TJ's case. They just might generate some valuable leads!

If it had not been for the Houston area media and a Bryan, TX TV station keeping TJ's name in the news the past months, TJ Murray would not have had any media coverage except for an initial joint Press Conference with MCSO and Mr. Murray (TJ's father) in October, 2011.

MCSO get off of your butts and do a Press Conference. Invite all Houston area media and KBTX - Bryan. Reach out to the general public for leads to help solve the TJ Murray case. Explain the timeline. Perhaps it will "jog" some one's memory during the time period that TJ went missing!

I bet if this was a beautiful female college student missing, perhaps MCSO would have been all over the case.

Special thanks to all of the Houston area media and KBTX - Bryan for all of the coverage you have done on TJ Murray's case since he went missing. I clearly understand it is rather hard to do a story when there are no Press Conferences by MCSO or an indication of pertinent info that might generate new leads.

Still waiting for a Press Conference by MCSO! Swallow your pride, MCSO, and reach out to the public for leads! TJ Murray has a family that love and care about him. It is past time that TJ Murray is found and brought home and those responsible for his "disappearance" are held accountable!

I think MCSO needs to request the help of the Texas Rangers. Maybe the Texas Rangers can solve this case! We are talking about the case of a Sam Houston State University student who went missing in October, 2011.

I pray that I never, ever have a relative or friend go missing in Montgomery County, TX.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- There have been eight months of concern and helplessness for one family in Montgomery County. That's how long it's been since they've seen or heard from their son.


Snipped:

It will be eight months on Tuesday since 24-year-old TJ Murray, Jr. disappeared. Investigators suspect foul play was involved, but with so few answers they haven't ruled anything out.

This has been a remarkable media blitz for TJ Murray.

I posted the articles from various mainstream media sources. This will be a good reference for future media blitzes.

This recent coverage reached large broadcasting viewing/reading/listening areas.

The following mainstream media covered the most recent story that Montgomery County Sheriff's Office now suspect foul play, after 8 months, in the disappearance of TJ Murray:

ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC TV stations in Houston, TX

Houston Chronicle in Houston, TX

CBS in Bryan, TX

CBS in Waco, TX

Media news online/newspaper: The Woodlands, TX; Conroe, TX

KSAM (radio) - Huntsville, TX


In the TV markets that covered TJ's story, where one TV viewing area ends; another picks up.

For example, Houston TV stations have a huge radius that can receive their signal (viewing audience). To the northwest, KBTX - Bryan would have a large viewing radius. Farther to the northwest, Waco would have a huge viewing radius area.

To the east/northeast, coverage from the Houston TV stations should have reached almost to Beaumont, Tx; to the south, the Gulf of Mexico area such as Galveston, Freeport, etc; to the west, Austin County and beyond; southeast - Fort Bend County and beyond; to the northwest - Washington and Fayette Counties, etc.

Where Houston's coverage ended to the northwest, Bryan and Waco's coverage would have "kicked" in.

Waco is approximately 200 miles from Houston.

I think the next media blitz should be the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office reaching out to the public for leads in TJ Murray's case. Better known as a "Live" Press Conference!

The death of a young Montgomery County man whose brother disappeared months ago and still hasn’t been found has been ruled a drowning, an official said Wednesday.

Will Murray, 21, who lives in the Oak Ridge North area, was swimming with friends Tuesday at the Guadalupe River in Comal County. He disappeared under the water and was pulled out by friends about 30 minutes later, just as emergency personnel arrived.

OMG, I am so sorry for this family, losing 2 sons within a year's time. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Still praying TJ is found, and justice can be served.

TJ Murray Missing -- 10/19/11: One Year Later

Post by Ann - Tx on Thu Oct 18, 2012 2:40 am



Missing student TJ Murray remembered one year later

By McKinzie Brocail
Senior Reporter
SHSU Houstonion - Huntsville, TX

Published: Thursday, October 18, 2012
Updated: Thursday, October 18, 2012 01:10


A candlelight vigil will be held tonight for a Sam Houston State University student who has been missing for one year today. The vigil and a 5-minute moment of silence will take place today at 8:30 p.m. at Rookies Sports Bar in Spring.

Thomas “TJ” Murray, Jr., disappeared from the parking lot of Rookies Sports Bar on the night of Oct. 18, 2011. He had borrowed his father’s truck to go barhopping with friends that night.

The truck was still in the parking lot, but his cell phone was found in a nearby ditch.

“I still can’t believe it’s been a year. I am told, ‘time heals all wounds’, but for me the pain and sense of loss hasn’t diminished much over the last twelve months. We all miss him so much,” Justin Snyder, Murray’s cousin, said.

To be out of contact with his family was unlike the almost 24-year-old Murray.

KHOU (CBS) - Houston, TX just had info about the Vigil and TJ Murray missing on their 10 pm News.

Brief interview with Justin Synder, TJ's cousin. KHOU filmed "live" at the vigil site, Rookie's.

Maybe KHOU will post a video on their website later. If so, I'll either embed or Link here.

Hi, sitemama!

TJ was using his father's truck that night. It was found in the parking lot of the sports bar.

His car was at his father's home.

Some of the media reported that "TJ's truck was . . . ." It was not TJ's truck.
