The Caring Family


Posted earlier today on Facebook.

This is such a twisted story it boggles my mind. In reality, Maura was running away. No doubt about it (at least up until that moment on Rt. 112 when her car crashed into the snowbank). And besides her mother, who made fun of Maura for suffering through bulimia, she was also running away from these three.

I spoke to a few people this week who attended West Point with Julie and Maura Murray. I'll be posting an interview soon. For now, let me just say Julie was as controlling and unkind as Fred was to them, growing up.

The picture looks great, though. But I think people are beginning to see through the b.s.

The best thing the Murrays could do to honor Maura is to tell the truth about those days leading up to her disappearance.

  1. are you concerned about posting it despite the "property of the murray family" written on it? I am wondering if they put it on there as an attempt to keep other media from using it?

  2. This is interesting stuff James. But I will be interested to hear some substantiation of it, including the interview. I do keep one thing in mind. You seem to have run out to the conclusion that Maura is alive - going so far in November as to say that you knew where she went and with whom and were just a few weeks from solving the case - but without ever substantiating or following that up. I respect you a lot James, but right now that just seems like a huge broad jump of intuition. In fact, I don't see much hard evidence that she is alive and I don't see much other than suggestive and ambiguous evidence, some of it rumored only, that indicates that she was planning to run away. There are contradictions of the coach's sentiments and reasons to be wary of him, as I have discussed before. I really hope at some point, you get to substantiating more of your theory. I am keenly interested, but aware that you don't always loop back to substantiate what you promulgate in theories. I realize that you don't owe it to anyone here to do more to substantiate some of your ideas, and that you may do so in the book. But if you are going to post these ideas, I hope you will do more to provide evidence and to consider the evidence that does not fit your theory in a balanced way.

  3. I don't recall James ever claiming he was "weeks away from solving the case." I could be wrong, but maybe you should provide the evidence for that, John.

  5. How is the leap to her being alive so great? Can you really make the leap to her being dead? There is no sign of struggle at the crash site there is only the account of one women 20 yards away of seeing a second person. John you seem willing to call people out on their judgments of the case and to go on massive tangents that just flex your knowledge of writing and not of anything substantial. Can you prove that we should be looking for a suspect instead of a person?

    I'm with John, James eluded he was weeks away from solving, see his post above from November.

    I'm fancinated and appreciated of all the research James has done but I'm starting to feel we've been Bakerized and strung along to keep us following his blog and purchasing his soon to be released book. I hope I'm wrong. James should share more information on what led him to the bold statements

  7. You can read those comments how you want but he says that he would have a resolution in weeks and its obvious from James postings about his time in Canada that the answer he was seeking wasn't found. So you could make the leap as john puts it to say that Canada isn't the answer and we can resolve to find another solution as the blog has done as we all know there isn't an easy solution to this if there was we wouldn't all be spending hours posting on this blog. I don't think that james owes us an apology for not resolving the mystery but rather a toast for hitting a road block and moving past it to the next mystery.

  8. Ok.. About rick baker... Why is everyone so against him? I've read the book about the mcstay disappearance and I never see any instance where he insists one theory or another.. He actually offers several.. And he was the first to bring to light many facts of the case previously unknown! James is doing just that.. What more can we ask from him but his own judgement on a situation which is what investigative reporters do

  9. Why has the not without peril blog been taken down? Not that I was an avid reader. Just curious.

  10. I don't have so much of a problem with Baker being wrong about some of his theories, what perturbed me is he posted photos of random dudes that looked nothing like JM on his blog leading you to believe it was JM and that he was still alive. Probably to keep the case interesting and keep traffic coming to his blog and purchasing of his book etc. Now back to Maura
