Police: Blue ’99 Camaro of 19-year-old apartment homicide victim is missing

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Investigators are working a homicide at the Oaks at Springville apartments in east Birmingham.

According to Lt. Sean Edwards, the victim, a 19-year-old male, was found by his girlfriend around 9:45 a.m. Tuesday morning. His vehicle is missing–a blue 1999 Camaro with a tag reading “7370AS6”.

Christina Sanders tells CBS 42 it was her son, Marcus Murray, that was killed.

Sanders said she wants justice for her son. Sanders said her son was a graduate of Woodlawn High School and he lived at the apartment.

Investigators said neighbors told them they heard shots Monday night, and investigators believe it’s linked to this homicide.

“I heard two shots, and I scoped down,” said neighbor Geraldine Marshall.

Police said Murray was suffering from a gunshot wound to the body.

“He was laying inside on the bedroom floor there,” said Birmingham Police Lt. Sean Edwards.

Investigators say that there does not appear to have been any forced entry.
