A man told police that he saw McMurray lying on the floor of a vacant apartment while he was walking through the apartment complex's parking lot. He called 911. 

McMurray, 21, of Meadowbrooke Avenue, told police she had snorted heroin, according to the report. She said she did not know how she ended up in the apartment. 

On Tuesday, McMurray was arrested on a charge of inducing panic in connection with the Aug. 2 incident.
