Level 2 RSO moving in Hoquiam
According to the Hoquiam Police Department, a Level 2 Registered Sex Offender is moving within Hoquiam. Alturo Murrow was convicted in 1990 with Attempted Rape of Child 1st Degree and Rape of a Child 2nd Degree in Cheyenne County Nebraska District Court.
Murrow is moving into the 2200 Block of Sumner Avenue. He is not wanted by police at this time for any crime.
According to Hoquiam Police, sex and kidnapping offenders have always lived in our communities; but it wasn’t until passage of the Community Protection Act of 1990, which mandates sex and kidnapping offender registration, that law enforcement knew where convicted sex offenders were living.
There are over 19,000 sex or kidnapping offenders registered since 1990 and currently living in Washington. Approximately 400 of these are registered to Grays Harbor County, and approximately 51 are registered to addresses within the city limits of Hoquiam.
These announcements are not meant to raise concern or insinuate that a larger than normal number of offenders are in this area. The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office told KXRO in May that the level of sex offenders locally is comparative to both the state and national average of offenders per 1000 residents.
