Augusta Man Sends Nude Photos to Underage Cousin!


Eugene Murray, 27, of Augusta, Inticing a child for indecent purposesAn Augusta man has been arrested on allegations that he sent nude photos of himself to a 14-year-old male cousin.

Eugene Murray, 27 (pictured), was charged with enticing a child for indecent purposes.

The boy’s mother contacted the sheriff’s office last Thursday after viewing disturbing messages, photos and videos on her son’s cell phone, according to a sheriff’s report.

The mother was so disturbed by the images, she couldn’t even describe them to an officer and had to hand him the phone to see for himself. According to a sheriffs report, here is what the officer saw:

  • Conversations between Murray and the boy about sex acts they would like to perform on each other.
  • Full nude pictures of Murray.
  • Discussions about meeting.
  • “Towards the end of the text messages there was a video call after which Murray asked (the boy) if he finished and he stated yes but it’s better in person,” a report says.

Murray was arrested the same day and remained in the jail on Wednesday under a $11,200 bond.
