Request for Murray’s data denied

The Patrick administration declined yesterday to release detailed cellphone records of Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray, rejecting the request by the Globe and other news organizations for documents that might have shown whom Murray talked to on his state-owned cellphone around the time of his early morning car accident on Nov. 2.

The Globe had requested records of calls to and from Murray from March 1 to Nov. 18, 2011, partly in hope of shedding light on the circumstances surrounding Murray’s rollover, which totaled his state-owned Crown Victoria. Murray has given shifting accounts of the accident’s cause, initially blaming a patch of ice, but later agreeing with State Police who suggested that he fell asleep at the wheel.
