Fred Murray Does Not Want Book Published

Helena Dwyer Murray runs a website devoted to the search for Maura. She has been identified in news reports as an aunt, but is actually not related to the family through blood. She's also one of the administrators for the Maura Murray Missing Group on Facebook. According to Helena, Fred Murray has contacted her and said he does not want a book written about his daughter's disappearance.

Attempts to reach him through his personal email and phone number, in order to verify this, have gone unanswered.

Having covered many missing persons cases, I have never seen such a strong reaction against information that may help find a loved one. As any victims advocate will tell you, the more info you get out, the better.

Earlier today, posts linking to this website were scrubbed from the Missing Group Facebook page, with no explanation given.


  1. Perhaps he eventually found out that his daughter is alive and well and wants to remain incognito? Just a thought.

    1. I agree with you.why else would he not want the would explain why he is so reluctant to talk now

    2. Fred was reluctant to talk from day one, so or he knew more already from day one, or there is another reason why he is reacting the way he is. Maybe he is afraid that whatever there is to find out might implicate him?
      Don't get me wrong I don't think that Fred directly has anything to do with Maura's disappearance, but I think the chance is very big that he is part of the reason why she wanted to leave.
