New Coordinates Posted on 4Chan


A few days ago, a new Maura Murray thread was created on the 4chan messageboards. Someone then posted a set of coordinates that leads to a wooded area beside the Winnipesaukee River near Laconia. While this is probably another troll, nobody has yet to venture to the spot. Anyone in the area want to check it out?

The coordinates are: 43.445081, -71.636925

This comes almost two years after someone emailed me different coordinates which was supposedly the location of Maura's body. To date, those coordinates have never been reached.

Confirmed: The Book Has a Secret Epilogue


We're about five weeks away from the release of True Crime Addict and things are heating up a bit, after Library Journal called it "An entrancing, brilliant next step for fans of the podcast Serial, Netflix’s Making a Murderer​, and other true crime cases."

A few advance copies leaked out recently, resulting in some very early reviews over on Goodreads. Going forward, I will not post any spoilers on this blog until May 24, when it is released to the general public.

I will say this: the advance copies did not include the 10-page Epilogue. That has been under lock and key and was only just added. What's so important about the Epilogue? It likely reveals why Maura Murray ran away.

More soon.

Is This An April Fools Joke or A New Lead?


Late last night a YouTube commenter known as "1978mackdaddy" posted the following message under the beginning of the Disappeared episode devoted to Maura's disappearance:

"If you want to find this girl it's pretty easy. She now lives in Sherbrooke Quebec with a guy named Maurice. She's been living there for years."

I strongly suspect this is an old troll coming back to muddy the waters. But it would be interesting if this person could offer a bit more.
