Beagle Threat

In case you missed it, Beagle briefly put up a new video, in which he manipulated video footage of my four year old son in a very creepy way.

I get criticized some times for trying to profit off someone's tragedy, when all I'm interested in, really, is finding an answer. These critics say I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Next time, maybe they'll remember that by putting my name out there, I not only open myself to these criticisms, but also to threats like this.

  1. don't let Beagle discourage you from finishing your book and research into this. We, the ones who admire and appreciate what you do, outnumber the ones who complain. Keep marching forward. We got your back!

  2. James, where did he post this. I saw that his blog was taken down. That man has a a very twisted obsession with you. Do you believe he had anything to with MM's going missing or do you think he is some obsessed freak? He seems to believe that he knows a lot about what happened and seems pretty intense about for some wierdo. Just looking for your thoughts. I am sorry to hear about the threat on your son.

  4. Didn't catch that, James, but man, is that sick...

  5. I am so sorry that happened to you. I still think he has nothing to do with the case. I think he is sick and believes he knows the answer and wants the credit to "solving" the crime story that he is obsessed with. I'm sure you have, but please file a police report if you haven't already. Take care. Most people know that unless you are a big blockbuster writer like James Patterson, you aren't going to get rich by being an author. It's what comes from your heart and I know your heart is in it.

  6. Sorry to hear this James. But you are right, anytime anyone puts themselves out there they're only 'inviting' any kind of feedback from anyone: good or bad. That's why I've always admired anyone who puts themselves out there, stands up for what they believe in, or does something they believe is right.

    I wouldn't worry so much about the negative with Beagle, instead..I look at all your positive, and the amount of research and work you have done this past year alone.

    I feel bad for people like Beagle. I wonder how lonely and unhappy this man is everyday. I'm glad I do not have his life and I'm glad I don't have to live with someone who has his mindset.

  7. Outrageous!

    I'm sure that you contacted the authorities.

  8. It's absolutely astonishing that this person can carry on with this kind of behavior. i am very suprised that the authorities have not become involved regarding his youtube postings, especially after the media have also reported his unusual antics...

  9. I guess you can call me a critic James. Afterall, you haven't answered the question, "what happened to Maura Murray?"

    Granted, you have told us that she was sleeping with her track coach, that she was drinking and driving, and that her Father isn't a good person, and that everyone who refuses to speak with you isn't helping Maura, and... what else?

    Anyone reading the blog: what other answers has James provided us that haven't come close to answering the real question?

    1. Well, Critic, if you haven't already deduced, the purpose of the blog is to answer the "real" question, and so far, us blogsters have been left to deduce the answer on our own because the aforementioned father and everyone else refuses to provide James with pertinent information about the case to attempt to answer such "real" question. Instead, father and everyone else uses Investigation Discovery to spread the word about Maura's case and then expects no other social media discussions about it afterwards. Pretty ironic, don't ya think? I guess James and us blogsters probably saw the Investigation Discovery episode and took an interest in the case and decided to help find Maura? Is that not a noble cause? If the information uncovered is unsavory as you mention, it's indicative of the cast of characters and the information that is made available to us. Much is left to speculation otherwise. Have a nice day, Critic.

    2. I'm sure he isn't going to put everything on here. Why would anyone buy the book? This is a place to kick ideas around and for people to help out.

    3. Anonymous,

      I'm sorry that you "have been left to deduce the answer on our [your] own." I feel really bad for you and for James and "us blogsters." But wait, isn't this about finding Maura NOT about any of us?! May I ask what the "real" question is that you make mention of if it isn't to find Maura?

      I like you, want to know what happened, and most importantly want Maura to be found. I was hopeful when this blog first started that James might help bring about that fact; after all, as he says in this post, "all I'm interested in, really, is finding an answer.'

      So far the answer is the same as it was before this blog started: no one knows what happened to Maura after B Atwood spoke with her prior to him calling the police. Please correct me if anything JR has come up with changes that fact?

      Regarding the people closest to MM who refuse to speak with JR. I have wondered why this is the case and JR has blocked several posts of mine trying to brainstorm the idea. I will attempt to share them again in a separate post on this thread to avoid him blocking this comment!

      Herm,

      I think you are right. This is a place to kick ideas around and people who want to write a book tend to use a blog to drum up interest to boost sales so I don't think he will put everything on the blog. That being said, I have read every post on this blog and nothing has brought us closer to finding out what happened to MM in my mind. Do you think I am missing something?

      I have nothing negative to say about JR, I am just sharing my observations based on the facts and rumors he has put forward on this blog.

    4. I believe, if you can follow the flow of the blog, it's shows us the direction the book is heading and structured. I honestly believe that LE, The PI's and James have a pretty good idea of Maura's ultimate fate was and who did it. But, this case, like countless others, lacks a smoking gun. It's about clues, Maura's actions in the week before, and her relationship with her dad.

      Delete
    5. I heartily disagree. (I'm not the aforementioned anon.)
      I for one believe that no one holds any sort of definitive answer in terms of Maura's disappearance and her ultimate fate. I believe that, despite the thousands of documents the LE refuses to release, for them this is a cold case, they're not giving it much thought and they know little more than us here. The same goes for James. I believe he will write the book without any definitive answer whatsoever, for I do not believe anyone has it. He will most likely blame it all on the father, which in my mind is just clutching at straws and is in no way relevant to the case, but without that "smoking gun" will be left on nothing but a speculation. And we will all be left in confusion - left to wonder what fate Maura met and/or where she might be today. The best thing that can be said about the book is that if by some miracle it becomes a bestseller, it will raise awareness about Maura's case and perhaps someone then takes interest, gives the case their all, and finally, finally gets us the answer we all seek.

    6. Sounds like you have it all figured out. Why follow the blog then? Blame Fred? Fred leaves himself wide open...

  10. Welcome back, James. Don't listen to Beagle, he just wanted his Youtube views back after his month hiatus.

  11. None of the negative cristicism you receive, is fair or true. You are absolutely right to feel the way you do regarding your family. what a low life this man is...regards.

  12. well thankfully I missed that!!!! Where did he get footage of your son? Dear God Mr. Renner, please watch your back. Get some weapons training if you haven't already, and your wife also if you have one. And I'm assuming you have notified police. If not, get busy!!!

    I don't deal in facts, I deal in intuitions ;-) and this guy is bat guana crazy and IMHO knows what happened to MM.

  13. Is this blog dead or is your book tour still on-going, James?

  14. Beagle, you are a creep, give it up and find something in life to make yourself productive.

    I am beginning to think you should be committed to a state mental hospital.

    1. 3:44, Time will tell when the real Beagle stands up.
      Have you ever stopped to wonder if Beagle knows he's onto someone and taunting that person? This is a very old tactic in getting a person to slip up, get nervous and eventually lose it.
      I go by intuition too, m'lady...

  15. Sorry, James:/

    Thanks for what you do, I know I appreciate it.

  16. Don't let the critics mess with you james, your doing great work here. You've brought a lot into this case and have moved it forward and helped truly stay in the public's eye.
    I still can't imagin what Fred's problem with you writing a book about this can possibly be, why doesn't he want the publicity? But that's another story,

    This guy Beagle is truly sick, he definetly crossed a line posting a video with your son in it, what's the point in something like that? The stupid mock novel thing he has up, thats one thing. It's stupid and annoying, but it's harmless. Him posting a video with your child in it takes it to another level. Something is wrong with this guy and I truly hope LE has taken a long hard look at this guy to make sure that he really is just a loser that's harmless and just loves to taunt people with youtube.
    I get the sense that he's just a harmless loser that wants attention. He's pissed at you because you've stolen the attention he's gotten in this case. He has some weirdd obsession with Maura and thinks he's way more important to this case than he really is, which is of absolutely no importance. I think that's the essence of why he made the videos in the first place; to insert himself into the case and try to give himself a sense of importance.

    Well I actually missed the video with your son in it, by the time I looked it was already gone. But When I looked there was a video referencing me and an unsolved murder from the 70's. Not sure how many other people ssw this but he had written in big letters "DA JENK"(reference to me) and then on the other side it had a graphic of a boy's head that looked like it was chopped off or something and floating away; under it read "Sullivan family" or "to the sullican family" I can believe I didn't think to take a screen shot but I didn't really have time to think about it because I was going out and by the time I looked the next day he had taken it down.

    Well I Looked it up and sure enough in the list of NH unsolved cases there was a 17 year old boy named James Sullivan who got murdered in Gilmanton,nh in 1977l

    I found this freaky. Not the fact that he referenced me, what do I care of some weirdo loser references my internet moniker, but the fact that he's referencing other unsolved cases is pretty chilling. Did he randomly choose this from a list of unsolved cases or is there a good reason he chose this. WHy did he take it down so quickly? Is he somehow resonsible for this boy's murder way back in 77?
    This guy seems to fit the profile of someone who could potentially be a serial killer. Is he a serial killer? Did he used to be a killer but now he's too fat and old to do it anymore?

    Is there any link between him and the murder of James Sullivan. I've been trying to find any info on this case but I've been unable to do so at this point. I haven't put enought time into it but I figure I'll be able to find some old newpaper articles about it.

    I dont know but maybe you should think about doing a little research into that murder as well? Your an expert at digging things up maybe you would be able to dig something up that I would not. I would really like to know if Beagle potentiallycould be responsiblefor this crime.

  17. I tend to think this guy just wants attention. He put my name in the video to try to get me riled up. He put your child in that video to try to get your supporters riled up. He has this weird delustional fantasy about vigilante group that's out to get him, he claims some sort of vandalism to his house but I showed that he's told at least 3 different versions of this story and if his house even was vandalized it certainly wasn't the work of a vigilante group. for evidence of this group he had a post by me on topix where I said some kinda stupid things, but never actually threatened him in the slightest bit. He also used some post from this blog by EmmETT DOVE where he does kind of threaten him, but its a hypothetical threat. So his best evidence for this so called vigilante group operating out of western mass are 2 posts, one from someone who lives in w mass half the time and the other was from kentucky and neither of these people have clearly ever even spoken to each other, hardly members of a vigilante group. HE said outright that these posts represent the work of a vigilante group which is just laughable.

    I think he expected me to get mad and start threatening him and all these supporters of yours to get mad and start threatening him but thats not gonna happen. He's just trying to prove his delusional fantasies exist.
    THanks for the blog james
    your doing good work here.
    I'm sure your disturbed he mentioned your boy but I doubt you have any real threat to worry about.

  18. Whoa. Sorry to hear about this. What is the deal with this guy Beagle? LE must be aware of him, no?

    I don't keep up with Maura Murray updates often enough to know what the scoop is on this creep. I gathered from other posts and comments that he's a big Topix poster; I tried to find him on Topix but wasn't able to find anything in the amount of time I had to spend looking. I'm guessing he's creepy and obnoxious but not deemed a "credible threat" by LE, hence no action taken?

    In any case, I hope you were able to have some kind of recourse against him, James.

  19. Are you stopping this blog based on the threats to your family?

  20. So glad that you are back posting Mr Renner but very sorry to read about this very upsetting activity. I do think it is all just attention seeking but just to be on the safe side please be vigilent.

  21. I think you should report him to LE.

  22. Whoever that guy is, he has problems.

    If you are only interested in finding the answer, and that is most important to you, then you should have no problem Mr. Renner taking all profits earned from the book and donating it to charities.

    1. What a stupid response . Cops, detectives, and countless LE officials have worked close to 6000 hours to find Maura. They all get paid. Should they donate their salary? No. Time is money. Since its been 8 years, you the message board trolls and critics, just set and rehash the same theories and rumors. It's was time for a pro to look at this case. Besides, James stated he won't profit from this. He'll be lucky to break even. Cut the man some slack. He's spending time away from his family just to help find this girl.

  23. There is a great deal of work that goes into researching, writing and publishing a book. Unless James is independently wealthy he certainly wouldn't be able to donate his profits to charities. Bottom line is if there is going to be a book out there on this subject that obviously interests many people, then the person who writes the book is going to have to be paid for his months/years of work. That's the reality of the situation though I know that there is emotional hardship in seeing your lost loved ones represented by others in books, film, media etc.
