Amherst Police Department Says Maura Murray's Credit Card Theft Investigation Is Not A Public Record Either


What is going on over at the Amherst Police Department?

Records secretary Jennifer Gundersen is now telling other journalists that they cannot have records related to Maura Murray's illegal use of a credit card and identity theft which she got busted for a couple months before she disappeared.

Why? Because it's not a public record.

Except it was public record when I requested it years ago. They gave me the full file, including her mug shot. Here it is.

How exactly does a record become public and then, retro-actively, not a record?

Is there new evidence in the case... or do we have a public servant unwilling to follow the law?

  1. Thankfully you got the records when they were public knowledge.

    If Maura got caught on 11-3-03, would she of been off probation Feb. 9, 2004? In the report, the police tell her she would get a notice to appear in court in the mail. Its been said she had to stay out of trouble for 3 months. Most likely Maura didn't go to court within 6 days of getting caught. How long did Maura have left on probation, from the time of her disappearance.

  6. And I will have to ask this question here as well, what good will this information be in helping to find Maura. this is just more stuff in the stew that only makes it taste bad, it adds no substance.

  8. Interesting that name of PDF file is James "Fenner" request.
    Also difficult to understand why response re Petrit Vasi hit and run
    from Amherst dated Jan 8, 2016 shows that incident date as August 2004.

  10. So it was public,.....which is shared by all, then they made it private 😂 so absurd, but a good waste of money none the less.

  11. i don't understand why this matters in her disappearance.

    Kind of sounds like you're just being nosy.

    And if you already have the info, why are you trying to re-get it?

  12. Here is the first article in the daily collegian of UMASS about Petrit Vasi.

    Unfortunately on a large college campus there were some other hit and runs that semester. And there names are listed in the article. It's highly plausible the same detective in 2004 worked on the hit and run cases. Maybe you can get that detectives name from Petrit himself or one of the other victims listed.

    The detective could be retired or just a decent human being who might be willing to comment off the record .

  14. A police report is public information. The names of the victims and suspects are protected, but the facts within the report are open.
