Tied in a Knot With Francheska Figueroa

Murphy is married to Francheska since 2009 but they seem to know each other since 1994 and at that time they were just friends.

During those days Francheska was smoking crack, abusing alcohol, and shooting a chemical named Nubain that was injecting drug users as a heroin replacement. The hallucinations of Murphy were not as devastating, but he had barely enough room in his life to take care of himself, much less an abuser.

Francheska eventually sober in 1996 following two failed attempts. Ironically, the date of her sobriety, Aug. 26, and it is the same as the birthday of Kai. She was a victim of a breast-cancer and she owns her life story which was dramatic ups and downs

Francheska Figueroa, a 41-year-old school teacher, has helped Murphy in child-rearing in recent months and it was another source of great joy for Pat when he welcomed her daughter Keli.

Second Wife- Argelia Murphy

Brad used to be the troubled person before married to Figueroa and before her, Brad was married to Argelia in 1999. The couple first met while Brad used to be the interim manager for Arizona.

On August 26, 2000, Kai Murphy was born to Pat and Argelia Murphy but Murphy and his second wife's marriage lasted only a few years and they got divorced. Pat was handed his son's custody.
