Police seeking details on case


The Riley County Police Department is looking for more information about a male K-State student whom a military medic found in a ditch Friday morning, according a news release.

The medic found Bradley Murray, 25, on the side of the road in the 1700 block of North Manhattan Avenue at about 1:40 a.m. Murray appeared to have been struck in the left side of the head near his eye, which caused severe head trauma, according to the release.  

Police are looking for two unknown men who appeared to be assisting Murray when he was found. According to the report, one of the men was wearing a purple shirt and had long, unkempt blond hair, and the other wore a plaid shirt. The RCPD also wants to speak with anyone who had contact with Murray after 1:20 a.m. Friday in or around Aggieville, his last known location.

Murray was intoxicated but conscious when the military medic found him and notified Emergency Medical Services, according to the release. He eventually lost consciousness and was transported to Mercy Health Center and then transported to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka.

People with information can call the RCPD and ask for Detective Scott Hajek at 785-537-2112 or Riley County Crime Stoppers at 785-539-7777.
