RCMP are warning residents in the Quinton area that a high-risk sexual offender has moved into the area.

Murray Allan Hill, 62, is a Caucasian male, stands 5"11 and weighs around 280 lbs. He has brown eyes and grey hair.

Hill has a long record of committing sexual offences against young children, most often by establishing relationships with them first. In the past, he has used threats of violence and coercion to ensure compliance from the victims.

Hill is currently bound by a court order to have no contact with anyone under 16 years of age, but he is considered at a very high risk to reoffend. RCMP are asking members of the Quinton community to be aware of Hill, and not hesitate to report suspicious behavior to Punnichy RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
