Just watched the WMUR piece on the 10th anniversary of Maura's disappearance. A couple things worth noting: they reported on Maura's credit card fraud and a few other points that have been swept under the rug before.
They gave Fred a lot of air time. And filmed him, again, looking around fields up there, as if he'd find evidence on snow covered ground he's already searched 10 years later.
Fred said he "initially" told police his daughter must be taken by a dirtbag. Not true. More of Fred's histrionics. The first thing he said to police was that she might have gone up there to kill herself. That's a big red flag because it suggests Fred would know a reason why Maura would want to take her own life. He's been trying to take that back from the beginning.
It ended on an odd note. Fred seemed to address Maura. Or at least the possibility that she had run away and was still living out there. Though, he said, if she were alive, he would expect her to call him. Or her family. Or at least a close friend.
From what I know about Fred Murray, I would never expect her to call him if she were alive.
Whatever happened after that crash, she was running away. From school, from her life, from most of her family (the exception being her kid brother and aunt), but mostly from Fred, himself. It was long overdue, in my opinion.
