Informer Joseph Dyer, who is a dialysis professional and Air Force veteran, says the attack happened in NY when he was a high schooler, as indicated by The Seattle Times.

"During that time, Murray regularly molested me in ways that can be best described as repeated and prolonged Child Molestation of the First Degree, or worse", Dyer said in the declaration. "And my mother would be right there in the house, she'd be in the living room... watching TV".

Beauregard, who also represents Dyer, said Murray's cousin is not filing suit but has offered to be a witness in the case when it is re-filed.

The mayor's choice to publicly attack multiple alleged survivors-whose stories are spread out over 30 years and share multiple similarities- while simultaneously avoiding answering tough questions himself has been an ugly choice for a leader I once supported.

"I guess they see me down and out, and they want to finish me off", Murray said. "Your chickens have come home to roost". During Murray's tenure as mayor, Seattle sued Trump over his executive order cracking down on sanctuary cities that limit their cooperation with federal immigration agents.

Delvonn Heckard, 46, a college student and recovering addict who lives in Kent.

Murray was elected in 2014 after 18 years as a state lawmaker. "This is 40-some years ago, and you know, 'Edward wouldn't do that.'" But she claimed Dyer told her all about his own abuse several months after Murray moved out. He withdrew that lawsuit, but is claiming the city owes him damages because Murray used his office to defame him. Says he plans to refile.

In July, newly released documents showed that an OR child-welfare investigator in 1984 had found Simpson's allegations valid.

Jeff Simpson of Portland said Tuesday evening that he's elated. He is also a recovering addict. Simpson was removed from Murray's home, and the Oregon Child Protective Services recommended Murray should no longer be a foster parent after they confirmed the legitimacy of Simpson's claims. Moon said she stood up for Seattleites, especially for those who are sex abuse victims.

Murray continues to deny all the accusations.

"I was pretending that I was asleep so he would not touch me again", said the man who added that the abuses have reached to an end when Murray found another victim: a boy from a Catholic group, who ended up taking legal actions against him as well.
