3 charged after torturing man at Murfreesboro hotel, police say


MURFRESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV) — Three people have been arrested after a man was held hostage and tortured at a hotel in Murfreesboro, according to the Murfreesboro Police Department.

Harry Kiningham, 41, Joshua Frazier, 37, and Jessica Mortensen, 25, have all been charged in connection with the kidnapping, robbery and extortion case.

A preliminary investigation showed that Mortensen contacted a 24-year-old man from College Grove, Tennessee via Facebook Messenger. The pair agreed to meet at a hotel to have sex for $300 at 11:30 p.m. Friday, police said.

Once inside the hotel, Kiningham and Frazier approached the victim, claiming to be Nashville police officers. Police said the men forced the victim to strip naked and give him his bank details, before taking him to the bank and forcing him to withdraw thousands of dollars. After nearly 10 hours, police said the victim was dropped off at his home in College Grove. The three suspects were eventually arrested.

Frazier, Mortensen and Kiningham are being held on $33,500 bail at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. Hearings are set for January 26 before the Court of General Sessions.
