U.S. Marshals 'Fugitive of the Week' Turns Herself in to Police

Concord, NH – This week’s ‘Fugitive of the Week’ Kristin Murphy surrendered at the Manchester Police Department on January 15, 2013.

Kristin Murphy, 22 who was last known to reside in Raymond, NH had been wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for a probation violation. This probation violation warrant was issued out of the Hillsborough County Superior Court based a prior conviction for possession of heroin.

Murphy was aired as the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force’s weekly feature known as the 'Fugitive of the Week'. The 'Fugitive of the Week' is broadcast on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, the Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph and is prominently featured on the internet.

When Murphy saw herself as the ‘Fugitive of the Week’, she chose to do the right thing and immediately surrendered at the Manchester Police department. Murphy was arrested on the outstanding Hillsborough County warrant and was transported to the Hillsborough County Jail in Manchester, N.H. for processing and holding pending her initial court appearance.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 4,392 arrests. These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses.
