He was Experiencing Paranoid Delusions
Murray was detained following an intelligence bulletin from Texas, D.C. police said in a statement. National media reports say College Station and Brazos County law enforcement alerted authorities that Murray was experiencing “paranoid delusions.” Those reports cite documents that law enforcement sources characterized as internal, containing official information protected under medical privacy laws.
The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office confirmed they interacted with Murray in the last two weeks at the request of his family due to his behavior. During that time, they say Murray did not commit a crime.
“There were no criminal violations found, but our agency continued to monitor the situation because of concerning behavior and statements, as well as, information that Murray may have been in possession of weapons,” the statement read.
“Deputies, working with the family and health care providers to obtain a mental health evaluation, received information that Murray may have been traveling to Washington D.C. We communicated that information with our local and federal partners, in an effort to ensure the safety of all involved.”
