This is Michael Glynn, of Woodsville, NH. He was arrested yesterday, and charged with various felonies, including rape and kidnapping after he attacked his ex-girlfriend at a sand and gravel pit off Rt. 302 in South Ryegate, VT. He picked her up in his vehicle at her home and drove her to the pit, where he allegedly assaulted her and then left her by the side of the road.
Why is this worth mentioning here?
Michael is not related to Walter Glynn, who one witness claimed was seen near the site of Maura's accident. Other sites have reported they are brothers. This is not true. There is no direct relation at all, according to friends and family.
Michael Glynn's Facebook page shows that he follows the Maura Murray case.
At this time it is unclear whether Michael is directly related to Walter or this red truck.
This story is still developing and I would caution anyone from drawing conclusions. A source close to Michael spoke to me today. She says the alleged victim has alleged similar crimes five times in the past. The alleged victim's own sister took to Facebook to suggest the story is not factual.
This could be a young man in the wrong place at the wrong time and in no way associated with Maura's disappearance (I still maintain Maura is most likely alive and well, by the way). Michael has had a rough life, to be sure. His two younger brothers died in a river accident when they were kids, along with the family babysitter.
If this story is found to be made-up, I hope the news sites that reported on this will delete or change their articles.
