***UPDATED*** BREAKING: Arrest made in Melissa Jenkins case.


Details are scarce, but last night Vermont police arrested Allen and Patricia Prue and the arrests appear to be related to Melissa Jenkins' murder. Police plan to hold a press conference at 10 a.m. 

***UPDATE***

The Prues have been charged with the murder of Melissa Jenkins. They apparently knew her from plowing her driveway years ago. No motive yet given. Watch the presser here.

There probably is no connection between Melissa Jenkins murder and the disappearance of Maura Murray. The fact that Beagle posted on the Barnet messageboard seems to be yet another strange coincidence for this sick individual.

  1. A husband and wife murder team. No apparent or released motive. Strangulation as the means of murder. Something does not add up. I am going to wait on this one. This seems odd. The beagle things is such a weird coincidence. He also has blogged about you for like 10 days. Something evil is admist.

  6. I agree. This Beagle person is at least obsessed. James, be careful. Also, have you ever had an obsessed person emerge during your prior investigations? This is quite odd. Many blow this guy off, but he clearly is obsessed with Maura Murray and your search.

  7. Something is not right about this guy. It's worrisome.

  8. I was wondering about the rag in the tailpipe of Maura's car.
    Could it be possible that she stopped for gas nearby and someone put a rag in the tailpipe to cause carbon monoxide to build up. This person would follow her waiting for her to pass out. Maura would become disoriented,drowsy and maybe drive into a snow bank.
    When this woke her up, she might even appear to have been drinking. She would then become easy prey for a "Good Samaritan".
    This crossed my mind and I just wanted to put it out there.

    1. yeah, it's been brought up here that maybe someone at a gas station put the rag in the tailpipe. but i was reading an article about MM that said putting a rag in the tailpipe wouldn't cause carbon monoxide poisoning (CMP), it would cause the engine to stall. i guess to get CMP you'd have to have a way to feed it back into the car, such as sitting in a closed garage. however there are varying levels of CMP so i feel like maybe having the rag in there could've caused a low level of carbon monoxide to get in the car which wouldn't have killed her but would've caused headaches, dizziness, disorientation, so i think you do have a point.

      personally i think Maura put it in there because Fred has said he had advised her to do that, though if it stalls the engine i have no idea why he would tell her that (i really have zero clue about how cars work)

  9. It has been reported that the husband suggested to the wife that they "get a girl" and then they lured Melissa out under the guise of helping them with car trouble. This plus the reports of how they disposed of the body and also her clothing as well as their own make me wonder if this is the first time they've done something like this. It appears the wife wasn't in the area in 2004, but was the husband? This all may be completely unrelated to Maura, but I wouldn't rule it out entirely.

  11. I find it so odd and disturbing the lengths "Beagle" is going to insert himself into this case. I believe he is likely an ill man, however when he begins to specifically target Mr Renner so aggressively, it makes one wonder why. The following link is an example. http://lookingforrenner.blogspot.com

  12. Thank God arrests have been made. It's revolting. What sort of ghastley, inhuman woman helps to strangle another young woman, a mother with a small child? Sickening. Folie a deux, perhaps.
