The very culture out here makes my job so difficult. It's like pullin teeth to get people to open up. But finally, I'm making a little progress. Last night I spoke to Maura's aunt Janis, her mother Laurie's sister, a big influence on her life. Great woman. Lots of stories. And just an hour ago, I sat down for an interview with the youngest sibling, Kurt Murray. What a great guy. He reminds me of a young Ben Affleck, except with red hair.
Still no response from the father, Fred. Though he continues to tell Maura's friends not to speak to me.
