I'm happy to report that detectives are actively investigating the sighting of Maura Murray reported by a Butson's employee last month. The woman was a cashier in 2004, and believes she saw Maura with two friends in the Woodsville grocery store about an hour before the accident in Haverhill.
Two detectives met with the cashier last month and discussed the sighting in detail.
Helena Dwyer-Murray, who runs the official family websites, said on Facebook that the cashier had spoken to family members in 2004. This is not true.
The cashier believed her manager gave this important info to police in 2004, but it never reached the unit looking for Maura.
The cashier approached Helena and the family earlier this year but the family kept the sighting secret until it was reported nearly a year later on this blog.
