Police Collected Kathleen Murray's DNA Last Week Says "Official" Private Investigator Working with Murray Family.

John Smith has been the liaison between Fred Murray and the world for the last few years and claims to be working as a private investigator for the family - he actively posts on the Facebook page that is run and edited by Julie Murray.

Smith claims that police collected DNA from Kathleen Murray last week to compare to evidence found inside Maura's wrecked vehicle. He also claims New Hampshire State Police visited so-called "Witness A". Here's his post from Reddit:

Just a few days after Karen McNamara did her interview on the podcast with Tim and Lance she was approached by two people from the NH State Police.... Those two people were Chuck West and Mike kokoski.

Their mission when speaking with Karen was to tell her that she was wrong she could not have seen what she think she saw and the accusations that she was making against the police were a very serious crime.

Karen was not making any accusations merely stating what she had witnessed..!

Last week Kathleen Murray was visited by the same 2 New Hampshire state policemen. Sergeant Kokoski is the head of the Cold Case unit and Chuck west is retired.

When speaking with Kathleen they told her not to pay attention to any of the conspiracy theories that were being tossed around because they knew that her sister was depressed and had come up here to commit suicide.

They also asked Kathleen for a sample of her DNA. They explained that this sample was for comparison to the things that were found in the Saturn on February 9th 2004.

WTF....... First of all they did not have a warrant for her DNA although she did give them a sample anyway.

For the record, again, I do not believe in any police conspiracy. I think it's completely bonkers to suggest police have anything to do with it.

But if it's true they collected DNA from Kathleen, that is very interesting information. Kathleen was married to Tim Carpenter at the time, and talked to Maura the night Maura had a breakdown at work. She has had several run-ins with the law.

Thank You!


This blog detailed my search for Maura Murray from 2011 to 2018.

The one thing I came to believe was that Maura was not traveling alone the night she disappeared. She was traveling with a tandem driver, in a car ahead of her. She made it to her destination that night. After that one of two things happened. 1. She kept running and is living her life (wouldn't that be nice?) 2. She was murdered later in the week by someone she knew.

Since I do not believe she was abducted by a random serial killer, and may in fact have left of her own free will, there is no reason for me to keep these files public. If you wish to review my notes and files on the case you can do so by scheduling an appointment with the Special Collections Archive at Kent State, where they are archived.

My book on the case, True Crime Addict, can be found at your local bookstore and online.


If you are interested in my thoughts on other crimes, please follow my new podcast and blog, The Philosophy of Crime. Should there ever be a significant break in Maura's case I will cover it there.

Thank you for reading this blog and for taking the time to check in.

Best,
