A new look at one of the North Country's Coldest Cases
What the ACTUAL FUCK.
This is so creepy. After all these years, why would someone just start randomly doing this? & on the 8th anniversary of her disappearance?? I thought at first with the Bretton Woods ticket that it may be someone trying to relay some information, but now this is just scary as hell.
aaahhhhh what the hell? i got goosebumps
in the reflection of his glasses it looks like he's looking at this webpage ... yes/no?
Someone forwarded this to the cops, I hope?
follow up / at 37 seconds if you do a screen grab i'm pretty certain this website is reflected in his glasses
Yikes! Now that's scary!
Someone trying to get their 10 minutes of fame. Going to take more than some stupid a$$ laughing to prove he knows anything at all. Put up or shut up.
this is probably nothing...but that guy looks a lot like an aged version of the assailant in the Jane Boroski case. can't help but be thoroughly creeped out right now.
What is wrong with people? It was/is the 8th anniversary of her missing & people coming out the woodworks?? Hopefully its just some1 looking for attention but they are gonna get the wrong kind! This case & Brianna Maitlands are sad.. Has no-one heard of street justice? Id gladly come up from VA & slap some yankees..
Thanks for finally posting one of my comments! These cases really hurt me, my wife was killed in an auto accident when I was 19. I spent my 20'th birthday at her funeral :( this was 1998. I am a pro body guard & I know that you are in Ohio Mr. Renner & would glady help in any way. Virginia isnt far. I stand by what I said as sometimes "Street Justice" actually helps, there are several ways to have someone talk.. & for all the "crazies" that the normal everyday 9-5 people encounter, sometimes its nice to know that there are people like me that would love to punish people that hurt young women! I already get judged by my tattoos (full face included) , so why not put my 6'2 255 frame to good use in helping the right way! Anyway, any northerners, please dont take the yankee comment to heart, as you all know the type I was talking about.. Namely these people coming out of the woodworks after 8 years! Where were they 7 yrs & 11mnths & 27 days ago?? Now they wanna run their mouth? To the guy that posted that, I seen you reading the screen.. Id aboslutely LOVE to meet you in person guy!
Someone please tell me what is said or shown in this video. I took one look at the post by James and I literally put my hand over my eyes- I'm freaked out and I don't want to watch it. What is it??
Reflection in his glasses looks like YouTube to me.
It's an old weird man laughing and laughing...little wink at the end. That's it.
It's almost as though, if this guy did indeed kill Maura, he follows this blog and couldn't resist disabusing you of the notion that she may be alive, healthy, and living anonymously in Canada or Ireland. At any rate, it's sadistic and not entirely out of character. Utterly chilling.
OK, am I crazy? I just tried to click on the video in Youtube, and it told me that the video was private... huh???
pretty creepy he just closed the videos down and his account hopefully you recorded all of this and sent it to whoever is handling the case track this idiot down. even if he does not know something they can beat on him for a little for being a idiot
YouTube no longer has the video... says the owner has deleted his account. What was this? What did he say?
Whoever that person is, ended up closing his youtube account. I'm still creeped out.
He closed his youtube account...I have both vids on my computer though, should anyone need them.Since I'm a photographer and have to edit pictures daily on my pc, I thought to give it a go and try to make his face more visible in some screenshots I took from the video. Working on that now.All in all probably just your average internet idiot though, trying to scare people. If he really needs to be tracked down by LE closing his account won't help him since Youtube will have the logs with his IP adress.
So, the account/videos have been deleted by the user. Probably just someone being a jerk. Weird he had video of the ticket, though.
HE DELETED IT. IT'S GONE.
Noticing that he's standing against a plain brick wall ... wonder if he's spoofing the photo taken of Maura in the credit card matter, where she's standing against a plain brick wall in her dorm.
Timing suggests that this is a response to James' posts yesterday. The reflection in the glasses further so (wow, great observation!).This is a hoax. Perhaps the poster knows something about Maura or knows her. But the intended suggestion that her killer laughs on the anniversary is bogus, really sick & poorly done.1st: too much obvious stereotype, B movie pure evil & poor old perv in backwoods NH about it. Not consistent with the profile of abductor/murderers. Like somebody tried to dress up as a comic book version of real scary evil guy.2nd: can you think of 1 killer who ever filmed himself to plainly ID himself and suggest his guilt? No.They write coded letters to newspapers using magazine cut outs or something like that. If he was prone to this, he would have been caught in a week.3rd: the portrayed comic book evil guy is clearly meant to come off as a sociopath. But sociopaths don't have the patience or attention span to make videos, open YouTube Accounts, etc. They get into murderous frenzies & need satiation right away. Then they go back to their double lives. And they are strange in affect; not Lecther-ish all over the place like from a good movie.4th: old teeth & hair, fake bald, glasses over eyes, fake bushy eyebrows... all easy. But the bone structure & fleshiness of age... that takes a hollywood expert w/expensive materials. Look at his cheeks, jowls & chin (in fact cover his upper face). There is an inconsistency between the various suggestions of age and his jaw line, cheeks & owls, which suggest a man in his 20s or 30s. 5th: why only obscure identity a little with glasses & shadows, but still make OBVIOUS salient/identifying features VERY visible? Because a stereotype disguise was being portrayed.Someone is f_____ with James. Maybe to waste/divert his resources. But this video is not even close to credible, if admittedly spooky.The poster, nonetheless, may know something about Maura. Soon enough we will know. The police are 2 slam dunk subpoenas from a judge & 1 computer expert away from quite possibly from knocking on this guy's door. LE will see it is a hoax, but it is creepy enough that public pressure will quickly mount on them to investigate. In other words, the jerk who posted this was just minimally competent enough to get caught.While an IP address points only to a nearby tower, every computer has a unique ID code, created by the manufacturer. These codes are carried on every transmission a device makes. Their disclosure is prevented by 3 factors: internet protocols, privacy laws & the fact that without the ID information from the point of sale (or registration on a site), it is just a number. In this context, if the police believe that a YouTube video pertains to a crime, they need to show probable cause to get a judge to issue subpoenas to YouTube and the machine manufacturer. Looks like probable cause to me. So if the video was posted direct from someone's own purchased computer, the police have a direct path to his door. If he posted it from a library or school or other public computer, it still could lead to him via log in data, sign in sheet, witnesses, logged holdings of library cards, and/or ID data carried by the coding of the video itself.I wonder if the hoaxster reads this blog? Clearly it triggered him to act. So to you I say this: you may think taking the videos down & closing the YouTube account will help. Pffft... no data on the internet will EVER go away. Even if YouTube offices everywhere blew up, not only do they have secure backup servers in "caves" but several companies w/webcrawlers back up the entire internet every 24 hours. Your electronic finger prints are permanently associated w/this video in webspace. Were I you, I'd call James before the police get avalanches of angry tips & you a visit from them.~John Green

A network card MAC address is not part of an IP packet. At layer 3 there is a snowball chance in hell that the recipient of an IP packet could tell you who the generating device was SOLD to, but more likely the store the sale happened at. Other than that, if that generating machine is kept "off the grid" ... good luck.
Thanks for the info anon at 5:28. However, you did not read, or failed understand, a part of my post. I did not say anything like that the "recipient of an IP packet" could tell you who bought the computer. A unique ID exists for EVERY device that interacts with the Internet. As I said, it would take subpoenas to two or possibly three organizations and a cross reference of data in order to know who purchased the machine (and then only if they paid with a credit card, registered the computer itself against a warranty, provided their information at point of sale, or registered at any time software installed on the computer.) You are setting up a straw man of an argument I did not make and shooting it down. A network card is irrelevant. The fact that you would bring up a network card leads me to believe that you may have some mistaken beliefs about how this stuff works and/or did not really read my post. You frankly seem to have been guessing that I might not know what I was talking about. I do and your mention of a network card - a completely irrelevant concept in terms of whether LE can obtain information about the poster of the videos - leads me to believe that you do not know what you are talking about. Forgive the directness there please; it is not meant personally at all.If I am wrong about something here, I would much like to be educated. So please do explain further if you have actual knowledge. I do not hesitate to admit when I am wrong. So please expand on your reasoning. But please make sure you react to what I actually posted.Repectfully,~ John Green
I guarantee that it's someone who follows her case closely.....
Coward f___ just took it down AS I WAS READING IT AND WRITING A COMMENT ON YOU TUBE with my John.Green google account. What a doofus. I am not a violent man and I believe in compassion, but if I am ever face to face with this jackass and unless he is somehow implicated (maybe trying to throw the scent for Maura to protect her privacy) ... in other words, if he's just doing this for the hell of it, I will teach this young man some manners.
I have a bunch of friends on FB ... I am going to post James' screen grabs on my face and ask anyone if they recognize this disguised person. ~ John Green
On the other hand (re my previous posts), who knows?There is a small similarity in the set of the lower lips and a more obvious one in the shape of the ears.Hate to accuse anyone of anything, but this is important and this man has been convicted of assaults against children.He is from Chesterfield, NH, which is about 25 miles north of the MA/NH border on I-91.http://ncmbts.blogspot.com/2010/10/eugene-bowman-murderer-walking-free.html
They closed their account... What did he say?
James, please be careful...
Yeah, can someone fill me in? Both videos are down now and I didn't get to see them. And the whole 112dirtbag name is too weird. Whoever this guy is he's either pulling some kind of prank or he's knows your theories about Maura running away are wrong because he did something to her. I'd be on the line with the investigators if I was Renner.
The video is no longer available; the user deleted his account. :/Can someone give a recap?-TJ
Both seem to have been removed now by the user . Probably a mentalist attention seeker put please forward your copies (assuming you copied it to the police) sonthey can check it outI didn't see the second video at all - what was he doing in it ?
Freaky! I just tried to view it again, a few hours after I read JR's original post and it's been removed. Hopefully someone will recognise this weirdo from the screenshots...KM
The video is down because the YouTube account is gone. What was this a video of? A guy laughing? *shivers*
The video is no longer available. It says the uploader closed their account. Any chance someone saved it? If so, can you please provide the link

Hey everyone, Get these videos on the news today -- WMUR and the Boston media outlets. The videos have been taken off YouTube but many of us copied them. While this might be a nasty prank TV and internet news providers should be made aware.http://www.wmur.com/contact/index.html
Please tell me someone downloaded this video before it was deleted and not just screen shots?
He's closed his YouTube account and now the video is gone. What did he say or do in it? This is very scary...I hope LE is looking into this and the Bretton Woods ticket.
Can someone sum it up or post it here for us, it was removed by the user. I'd like to see it but can't now. I hope you downloaded it and have it to show to authorities. What did it say?
I can tell you all that I reported it to the cold case unit last night... both videos. I received an email back from them today that said that they are aware of them. Hopefully they are actually looking into it. This was just sick!
It looks like the ticket was a package deal, I am sure brettow woods could find who this ticket belonged too, exspecially since packages would be easier to trace. I wonder if she is near or at Bretton Woods. Please look for her, this matters, we all want to know what happened to Maura.
