One of the stories everyone comes back to when reviewing Maura's case is the "breakdown" she had the Thurs. night before she disappeared, after she spoke to her sister Kathleen on the phone. But there was a second outburst, according to an article published by Seventeen several years ago. On Saturday night, Maura dropped her father off at a nearby motel and returned to the dorms where she hung out with friends and drank Skyy Blue and wine.
A couple times during the night, Maura told her friends that she wanted to drive back to the motel that night instead of waiting until the next day to return her father's car. Even her friends told her that didn't make sense.
According to Seventeen, Maura left the party at 2:30 am, telling everyone she was going to bed, but instead, got in her car headed for the motel. On the way, she would crash into a guardrail and cause several thousand dollars in damage to Fred Murray's car. They had a lot to discuss when she got there. But, why in the world was she going there in the first place?
