A couple weeks ago, a petition was started by Wolfman to have the F.B.I. look into Maura Murray's disappearance. The family's official Facebook account is supporting this initiative, too. However, I am not linking to it. Why?
Well, for about a billion reasons.
Mostly, though, because the FBI have been involved since about day 2. They did some investigation on the case and -- I strongly believe -- continue to do a little consulting with police on it to this day. I've spoken to an FBI agent in Boston who worked on the case. But Fred Murray and others have made it a kind of battle cry -- getting the FBI to "take over" the case from New Hampshire State Police. I think it's nothing but a distraction.
So, I'm not sure what they're trying to accomplish when the F.B.I. have been involved since 2004. Do they want them to get "really, really extra" involved?
Part of it, too, is to support this notion that local law enforcement had something to do with Maura's disappearance. That idea is simply ludicrous.
The petition is not going to change anything. You know what will? Fred Murray, Kate Markopoulos, and Sara Alfieri answering some basic questions about the weekend leading up to Maura's disappearance. That would be more helpful to figuring out what happened to Maura than a hundred meaningless petitions.
