COLD CASE SOLVED: 2010 Murder Case Solved, Suspect Arrested
Aaron Dobbins Arrested For 1st Degree Murder For 2010 Killing Of Then-31-Year-Old Alfred McMurray
OAKLAND PARK, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — An arrest has been made 12 years after a man was found murdered in his Oakland Park home.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office tells Boca Post that forensic evidence, witness interviews, and persistent detective work, led Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide investigators to the killer.
On August 30, 2010, BSO deputies responded to a call of a suspicious incident at 1386 N.E. 34th Street in Oakland Park. When they arrived, they discovered a man lying face down with a gunshot wound. The victim was identified as Alfred McMurray. McMurray’s vehicle and other items of his were missing from the home.
In 2010, detectives conducted numerous interviews and gathered evidence at the murder scene but were unable to identify a clear suspect. However, in May 2022, new information led homicide investigators to identify a possible suspect, Aaron Michael Dobbins. A search warrant for Dobbin’s DNA and subsequent testing found that his DNA matched the evidence gathered 12 years ago.
BSO Homicide Unit detectives determined Dobbins lived in Oakland Park during the time of the murder and knew McMurray through Dobbins’ roommate. Investigators said that based on the information gathered and evidence collected in this case, they believe Dobbins is responsible for the murder.
Dobbins was arrested in Hillsborough County, and on Sept. 22, he was extradited to Broward County. He is facing one count of first-degree murder and is being held without bond in the Broward County Main Jail.
