Alfred McMurray, male, 31, 12/25/1978, 1386 N.E. 34th Street, Oakland Park
- Aaron Michael Dobbins, 52, 9/9/1970, male, 4800 S. Westshore Boulevard, Tampa
Over a decade after a man was found murdered in his home, forensic evidence, witness interviews and persistent detective work, led Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide investigators to the killer.
On August 30, 2010, BSO deputies responded to call of a suspicious incident at 1386 N.E. 34th Street in Oakland Park. When they arrived, they discovered a man lying face down with a gunshot wound. The victim was identified as Alfred McMurray. McMurray’s vehicle and other items of his were missing from the home.
In 2010, detectives conducted numerous interviews and gathered evidence at the murder scene but were unable to identify a clear suspect. However, in May 2022, new information led homicide investigators to identify a possible suspect, Aaron Michael Dobbins. A search warrant for Dobbin’s DNA and subsequent testing found that his DNA matched the evidence gathered 12 years ago.
BSO Homicide Unit detectives determined Dobbins lived in Oakland Park during the time of the murder and knew McMurray through Dobbins’ roommate. Investigators said based on the information gathered and evidence collected in this case, they believe Dobbins is responsible for the murder.
Dobbins was arrested in Hillsborough County, and on Sept. 22, he was extradited to Broward County. He is facing one count of first-degree murder and is being held without bond in the Broward County Main Jail.
