    1. Her sister, Julie I believe.
      I'd like to know who is blurred out as well... probably nothing good to come of that but just another thing to piss us off with not knowing. SMH.

  5. Calm before the storm; little did Maura know that her world would be so badly shaken that it would be necessary for her to vanish.

  7. Looking at them, I do not ever comment on anything on the internet but did read your books and listen to the podcast about her, guess I'm just feeling funny today - anyway though - looking at these pics- they were all so young. But she really does standout to me, she's beautiful. God bless her. I'm just a 24 year old girl too.
    Anyway though, it seems all but impossible that all of her very close circle she had and her family doesn't know where she is. Of course they do. To even talk about otherwise is ridiculous and I won't play that game.
    What the real question is though - is why are they keeping it a secret ? That's what's so weird to me. Did it make her look bad( or should I say make her family look bad) ? Are her close ones that selfish ? It seems highly possible. My dads a lot like that - and my mom follows what he says. Do they not see an entire army of people that have turned up to support and remember her?we deserve the truth too. There are many people for periods of time must have dedicated their lives to this. I'm kind of angry with the family.

    Maybe Maura went somewhere and overdosed ? Who knows. Except that weird family. What happened really to her needs to be told - those who know have atleast that duty- be it ananomous we don't care- just tell us so she can be remembered for the way she actually factually was. This is nonsense to let this keep going on. It's selfish. This case seems to be a breeding ground for that.
    And that's my peace.

  8. And damnit if she is missing on purpose - on her own free damn will - even more of a reason to shut all this shit down. Cause if she really is out there , which I don't think she is but whatever who cares whAt I " think may have happened" - if this carries on and she is alive - there must be a strong as hell reason for her to have remained hidden - this needs to be shut down or someone will find her. But her own parents have selfishly made this case seem to the world like something sinister-have continued to do so. The selfishness of every single person at times , even myself is wrong. She is either alive ( and has stayed away on purpose ) or is dead. Keeping the truth away is really only hurting her or her memory.

    The end. Thank u all.

  9. That is the boat at West Point - on the Hudson River. It is reserved for social events by all kinds of different groups. The first one is Bill as a cadet and Maura either as a cadet or as a civilian (after she left West Point).

  10. This is the boat on the Hudson River at West Point. It is used by different groups for enjoyment. It looks to me that this is when Bill was a firstie (senior class cadet), and Maura was a student at UMASS.

  11. I posted on this earlier but my comment never appeared. My guess is this is the Superintendent of West Point's yacht and the occasion is either Ring Weekend in August or graduation in May when Billy was in his last year at West Point. Renting out the Supe's yacht for these important milestones and hosting friends and family for a cruise on the Hudson River is very popular with Firsties and they go in on the cost with their companymates. Class rings are a very big deal at West Point with a nice ceremony overlooking the Hudson River on Friday followed by a formal dinner and dance the following evening. Based on how everyone is dressed, I would say it's Ring Weekend in August.
