Man accused in 13-year-old rape case captured in Daly City

DNA evidence in a 13-year-old rape case led to an arrest in Daly City on Thursday.

Willis Dismuke Murray, 30, allegedly yanked a woman off a sidewalk in Concord late at night on March 18, 1997, and raped her, police said.

In June of this year, the Contra Costa County crime lab told cops that Murray’s DNA matched evidence collected from the crime scene. Cops detained him as he exited a Daly City home Thursday, police said.

Since Murray was 17 at the time of the crime, the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office issued a juvenile petition charging him with kidnapping and forcible rape, Concord cops said.

He is being held in county jail in Martinez.

Police are probing the possibility that Murray attacked other women.

The victim has been informed of Murray’s arrest, police said.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Greg Rodriguez with the Concord police at (925) 603-5822, or by calling the anonymous tip line at (925) 603-5836.
