RNC Issues Public Advisory Regarding High Risk Offender

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is advising the public of the release of high-risk violent sex offender Dennis Murphy.

Murphy, 59, has been released following the completion of a federal sentence at Dorchester Penitentiary for sex offences against young females.

This advisory is being issued because the RNC has reasonable grounds to fear that Murphy will commit another violent sexual offence. Murphy’s behaviour has been described as predatory in that he commits sex offences against young and vulnerable females, often under the age of 18, by supplying them with drugs and alcohol

Murphy is residing in the Paradise area.

The RNC is issuing this information and warning after careful consideration of all related issues, including privacy concerns, in the belief that it is in the public interest to inform the members of the community.

Members of the public are advised that the intent of this release is to enable citizens to take suitable precautionary measures.
