The reporter was also given access to Fred, Julie, and Kathleen, though all questions about the past were off the table.
And this blog is mentioned near the end.
Renner writes on the blog that he’s made many attempts to interview Fred for the book but has been stonewalled, and he questions Fred’s motivations for not talking to him.
Fred said he doesn’t like to discuss the book but has refused to participate in the project because he doesn’t trust the angles Renner might take, and because he doesn’t think Renner will “dig up anything I haven’t.”
Toggling between the Facebook group and Renner’s blog, it’s as if two camps have formed: the former for sympathy and the latter for pointing fingers.
The key to finding Maura, of course, is to understand her past and this family's past. It's insane to insist her past (such as the credit card fraud, her cheating, her relationship with Fred) did not figure in to her decisions the day of her disappearance. They want the cops to figure out the solution without presenting the problem. It's like solving for "x" without looking at the other side of the equation.
It's good to see that Kathleen is okay, though. I've been looking for her in Swanton, VT, where former neighbors say she disappeared shortly after her boyfriend was sent to jail.
A message to Kathleen: Tim told me some scary things. I would like to hear your side before I write about them. Please contact me.
