Kidnapping Suspect Possibly Connected To Other Cases


A man suspected of kidnapping a 19-year old girl is now wanted in two other cases.

Those crimes are of indecent exposure.

Authorities believe 23-year old Kyle Davis Curley Murphy is the man responsible for those crimes.

Murphy first caught authorities' attention after returning to the scene of a kidnapping and posing as a witness.

Around noon on June 1, the victim was riding her bike on Woodmen Hills Drive in Peyton when she says a dark SUV pulled in front of her and stopped.

She says the man was armed with a gun and was wearing a homemade black ski mask. The victim says the man punched her, then as she tried to get away the man grabbed her by the backpack she was wearing and dragged her into the passenger side of his car.

As the car started to drive off, the victim jumped out and ran to a nearby house where she called police.

Investigators say Murphy returned to the scene with the victim's backpack claiming he was an eyewitness to the entire thing.

While officials were interviewing Murphy about the kidnapping case, they realized he matched the description of two indecent exposure cases in the area.

Investigators say they found enough details and similarities to connect Murphy to the kidnapping and the indecent exposure cases from earlier this year.

On March 24, another woman was sitting in a Walmart parking lot when a man approached her in a truck opened his door, pulled down his pants and started masturbating.

On May 31, a woman in Peyton reported a man approached her in a truck and exposed himself.

Authorities believe Murphy is the suspect in each of those cases.

Murphy is being held on no bond for the kidnapping incident, and an $800 bond for each of the indecent exposure cases.

He's facing charges of kidnapping, menacing and false imprisonment, among other charges.

Murphy is due back in court on June 12.
