No leads in fatal stabbing

— Police say they have no suspects in the stabbing death of a Muskogee man at an Oklahoma city bar.

Raheem Murphy, 21, was stabbed early Saturday outside The Office, a club at 5929 N. May in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City Police Department Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said. Police identified Murphy as the city’s 10th homicide of 2013 on Monday.

It was also one of four homicides the department worked last weekend, Wardlow said.

Murphy, who had “trauma to his body consistent with homicide,” was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

Though police said there were many witnesses to the disturbance outside the club that led to Murphy’s stabbing and death, no suspects have been identified.

“I know they had somewhere between 150-200 people they tried to detain as potential witnesses,” Wardlow said. “They’re still trying to determine what happened and what led up to it.”
