I'm going to change the text on our 'Free Lee Murray' shirts to 'Freed Lee Murray' in the immediate future. This morning I received a phone call and an email from the same source who enabled MiddleEasy to obtain an unprecedented interview with Lee Murray earlier this year.
According to my source, Lee Murray will be released from his Moroccan jail due to the actions of a forensics officer that worked on his case. Recently, this unnamed Kent officer was disciplined for disposing evidence in another case which forced police to inform Lee Murray's lawyers of the mishap. This will lead to a retrial which, what I'm told, will result in a 'very definite' chance that Lee Murray will be released from his prison in Morocco. It's also important to note that if a retrial is granted to any of the five men that were jailed in 2007, Lee Murray will be released.
I've also been told that the primary thing Lee Murray wants to do after being released is to return to his MMA career. Apparently Murray is in the same shape that he was in when he submitted Jorge Rivera with a triangle a few years ago. From what I've heard, competing in MMA is the only thing on Lee Murray's mind and he's even been offered to be featured on a main event in two separate MMA organizations pending his release. Lee Murray's anticipated release date is sometime at the end of 2011.
