A new look at one of the North Country's Coldest Cases
Has there ever been an age enhancement for this photo (or one like it)? Just curious...I mean, it's been 12 years.
RIP Maura. You didn't deserve whatever has happened to you, no matter what anyone says about you.
Who is saying she deserved it?
I think you misunderstood my comment. I didn't say anyone said that in particular. I was referring to any negative comments made about her in the past or future.
12 years has been long enough!! It's time for some answers and to solve this mystery. Someone knows something and it's time for them to have the courage to speak up. Was the Area around UMASS ever searched? Perhaps the police should take a different approach into the investigation because what has been done in the past 12 years hasn't solved the mystery. Maybe they should release the ATM video, which would show exactly how Maura was looking and what she was wearing on the day of her disappearance.
12 years on & no closer to the truth.still as much mystery today as all those years ago.
12 years ago today. Maybe we'll see a breakthrough soon. I think this is the year.
James, is the May 24th release date set in stone, or could it change if new information comes out? I'm about to preorder your book on Kindle if that makes any difference.
This post struck me as rather cryptic (just a number and a picture; the lack of additional text), but only at first glance. Sometimes all that's needed is the image of a lost girl, ala the lost boys in Peter Pan. (I know there's a lot of grief when someone refers to Mauara as a 'girl' instead of a 'woman', but I'm close to Maura's age, and I quite like to be called girl or better yet 'young lady'.) So yes. A lost young lady. Her smiling face; a nice portrait and the number twelve...for whatever reason, however, the number six appeared in my mind then repeated. I kept seeing six while looking at Maura's eyes. I don't believe much in psychics and all that, but I've been known to have a vague premonition or two...maybe six years, six months, six weeks, six days...maybe we'll learn something new. I hope we learn something new. I want so much for Maura's mystery to come to a proper end, and not be some over-and-over event like Peter Pan. Always returning to windows, wondering where the children have flown to. Empty beds. Crying parents. A girl who can't age because she's lost in some Never Never Land otherwise known as a cold case. Gosh, it's heartbreaking. Best to you, Mr. Renner, and thanks for working hard on this. I hope you made it home safely from your trek today. The anniversary. I still think if we knew why Kate was missing for a few days post-accident, we might could get somewhere.
I'm also close to Maura's age, and like you, I also prefer being called a girl/young lady. On the surface, Maura and I don't seem to have a lot in common, but the more I learn about her, the more I realize how much I can relate to her.For some reason, I keep coming back to the thought of her being a nursing student. I’m a nursing student, like Maura was, and I've never been the same since I started my journey into the Hell that is nursing school, 2 years ago. I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. It’s permanently changed me more than anything else in my life. It probably doesn’t mean anything, but that thought just always pops into my head whenever I think about her.Anyways, your post was very well-written and eloquent, poetic even. I too, hope this mystery can be solved. Every time I think it's close to being solved, I end up getting more frustrated because it seems to only lead to more questions and no answers.Here's hoping that 2016 can be a year of answers.
This photo was posed for, I would love to see her mug shot(in her dorm hall) cleaned up and enlarged.
Better, just a candid unposed shot.
The more I read about this case, the more I think the accident was staged and everything was completely planned, and luck and timing were on Maura's side that night. I think she's probably in Nova Scotia waiting tables or something.
