Update

Expect some new posts later this month and into April.

I'm finally caught up with other obligations and have a list of interviews set up to complete my research for the book on Maura's disappearance.

I'm also planning to create an interactive map of the important locations in the next few weeks.

If you have any stories about Maura you'd like to share in the book, please contact me soon.

  1. I hope you have some updates soon, as I check for new information or different poster's theories every day. This case has long intrigued me. I think your book, much like the one recently published about the missing McStay family, will bring this strange disappearance back into public view, renewing interest in missing Maura. No family should ever have to wonder about a missing loved one. I would want any and all information put forth to gain closure if I had a missing loved one.

    1. That's just the thing. James Renner's book will do wonders to bring Maura's disappearance to thousands here in the states and beyond, and Fred has told the people he controls, I mean knows, not to speak to Renner. I would be giddy with gratitude for a book that might make my daughter come out from hiding, or might point to a suspect if she were indeed harmed, but, no, Renner is going to make money from the book so that makes him evil. Never mind that all of us work to make money. The level of idiocy surrounding this case is mind-boggling.

    2. Why would a father not want people talking about his missing daughter? I'm new to this case, but that sounds insane

  3. After seeing this on Disappeared, and being somewhat of a sleuth in this area, I can offer these observations:

    I suspect that in both crashes Maura had within 3 days, she was intoxicated. I am not sure why she was drinking and driving, but she may have had a recent stressful event happen-I read that perhaps her boyfriend had cheated on her. Whenever you have 2 one-car accidents in 3 days, suspension must fall on impaired driving. If Maura had discovered unfaithfulness, then a trip to get away could be seen as warranted. The fact that she told professors that she had a family tragedy makes me think that she did receive news that was a tragedy-involving HER.

    Now, being that she bought a fairly large amount of alcohol and that she traveled alone, she planned to consume quite a bit of alcohol. The bottle found at the 2nd crash smelled like alcohol, and a red substance was found poured from the bottle (did the cops take a sample of the liquid for analysis?).

    The fact that she did not want to stay at the scene of the 2nd wreck speaks volumes of her wanting to avoid police contact, until she could sober up and not be cited for drunk driving. My guess is that she walked not into the woods, but rather along the road in the direction she was heading. It makes perfect sense that she was abducted while walking, or was offered a ride and was held at gunpoint.

    In a drunk state of mind, she would have been quite desperate to flee the scene quickly. Any ride would do, as she knew that this crash would have severe repercussions.

    I would have set up a road block on that road for a week or so near the time that the crash occurred. Odds are that the suspect travels this road for work or some other reason regularly, and at about the same time. This was most-likely not a predator driving around haphazardly. The suspect is more that likely a local, with a criminal record. Caucasian, 35-50 years old. He is middle to lower income, with a high school education. He grew up in the near vicinity and abuses alcohol.

    This is the info that I sense, and I have been right on many now-closed cases.

    Warm regards to the family and friends.......

    1. I don't read deeply into her email to the college profs. These days it's the only excuse that allows a student absences without getting penalized....your grade lowered. I attended classes with a student who used it twice in one year (never got caught)! In this case, HOWEVER, it conjures up one question: Was she planning to return, needing this time to think things through....playing it safe, just in case??

    2. I think she intended to return, of course. She went to a place that held good memories for her, and she needed a time out. The crash was unfortunate, but it appears that she was drinking the boxed wine when she crashed. Bad luck perhaps, but she met with foul play while fleeing the scene. Once again, it was a crime of opportunity-her assailant saw her, and her thought process was marred by alcohol. She got into the wrong car, at the wrong time, and that was her last mistake.

    3. I think the reason she needed to get away for the week was because the news see received at the dorm that made her upset was positive pregancy test. Was going to a clinic spend time after that rest and return back to school and met her fate a stranger picked her up or was set up, and told to take rte112. She was still going to study for her classes and recover, so she need a rental of a room. If she was preganent an was abducted she could still be alive an tell the creep who took her its his. Knowing he would not harm her or baby thinking it was his . Or a baby abduction ring or white slavery. I think that was the news an she didnt want to hurt her family or boyfriend, she could of cheated on him an need to hide the abortation but met her fate on a dark road. Didnt they say her muffler was stuffed with a rag new she was head on the back road and the car could not get enough oxygen an broke down. I believe abduction. I pray for her family that the Lord will give them peace, confort and love. I pray for her return.

    4. I am so glad you are bringing into light the facts about the car accidents, the large amount of booze she had in the car and the fact that she did not want police involved. She ran away from the wrecked car and I think into the woods.. I think she made one last call to her boyfriend crying and then passed out in the snow and died. While interviewing her friends not one of them mentioned Mara drinking...did she have a drinking problem...sounds like it. She was behaving like someone who wanted to go somewhere and just drink....I don't think there is foul play I think she succumbed to the winter snow....she was drunk...and scared...maybe she was trying to hide in the woods got lost and died...animals doing what they do and finished of the remains...she is gone and its not a big mystery....seems like Dad is in denial about her drinking and wants to blame someone ......

  6. Wow, I am from the UK and have just watched the Maura Murray case for the second time, it is baffling. I searched on google after the programme to see if she had been found and came across this site. Think it is great that people want to solve this case. After the programme I felt terribly sorry for the Dad but now reading some of your comments I am not so sure, things are never really as they seem.. Good luck on solving this case.
