Patrick Murphy Murder Case – The Latest
Coal Region Canary follows latest updates in the Patrick Murphy murder case.
Murphy is the Pottsville businessman whose body was found in February in a New Orleans hotel room.
Accused in his death is Magen Hall, a 25-year-old prostitute who was last seen entering the Empress Hotel with Murphy in New Orleans’ Treme neighborhood the night of his death. She left alone several hours later.
If she’s convicted, Hall spends the rest of her life in prison.
At home, the public who had gotten to know Murphy through the years because of his business, his political, and his charity work remain stunned by the news of his death, particularly with how it happened.
