If There Was a Tandem Driver, Nobody Has an Alibi

The only thing I'm sure of, in my heart of hearts, is that Maura was traveling with a tandem driver the night she disappeared.

Lately, though, I've started to wonder if the goal that week really was to just get away for a while to clear her head. Have some drinks, regroup.

Perhaps the tandem driver had to get back to school, leaving Maura alone (without a car) until later in the week, at the Outing Club Cabin or some nearby retreat. But when they came back, Maura was gone. And the tandem driver has never come forward because there remains the possibility that Maura left on her own and doesn't want to be found.

Whatever the case, I really hope she made it out, and that she is alive someplace.

But...

What if someone else found Maura before the police did? What if someone found her and was so overcome with rage they did something to her? They would have an alibi for the disappearance but not what happened to her next.

I think police should take a close look at the days immediately after the disappearance, at least until Friday that week. Where exactly was everyone during the search for Maura in the White Mountains that week?

Perhaps Maura is dead. But maybe we were way wrong about the location and timing of it all.

If there was a tandem driver they should come forward with what they know, unless they know without a doubt that Maura is safe (which is looking increasingly unlikely).

Send Tips 100% Anonymously

Today, I set up a Globaleaks server and website specifically for sharing evidence and information related to the Maura Murray case.

This is designed for two purposes:

1. For Maura Murray herself to provide proof of life without revealing her location (this would include a photograph or video).

2. For anyone with information about the death of Maura Murray to provide evidence or information without fear of being traced.

How it works:

Step One:
Download the Tor browser.

Step Two:
Open Tor and input this address in the address bar:
zzkahkxumybfb7rd.onion

Step Three:
Follow the prompts to submit info.

Step Four:
Copy the 16-digit code so that you can log in later to communicate further.

That's it. Let's have closure.

Fingers crossed.

A New Theory

Over the last few days I've been contacted by a couple sources close to people involved in Maura's life in 2004, and these conversations are prompting me to consider a new theory:

In this scenario, the tandem driver delivers Maura to her safe place (a cabin, the Outing Club place, a hotel), after the crash on 112, then they return to their place, leaving her alone. Later in the week, she is found at this location by someone she knew and killed.

This would go a ways to explaining why the tandem driver is not coming forward (they honestly don't know what happened to her, and are staying quiet to protect her) but also why Maura has not been found (because she was murdered days after her disappearance far from 112).

It's admittedly a weird, messed-up scenario. But whatever answer we get will likely be equally strange.

I'm not sold on this but I'm considering it a possibility.

And if the first part of this rings true, I would ask again that the tandem driver/s come forward and give Maura's destination, because the possibility that she's alive after all of that is quite remote.

The Toughest Question

In tonight's episode of The Disappearance of Maura Murray, Maggie poses a very difficult and personal question to Fred Murray - did he have an inappropriate relationship w his daughter?

Nowhere in my book does it say he did.

However, it has been implied on the Internet messageboards - people questioning why he was visiting Maura at Umass, why she was going to his room, etc. I have tried to be diligent on this website about deleting these comments but it was difficult to keep up with that task sometimes (in part, it's why I shut down comments to this site).

This is dirty laundry and makes me very uncomfortable. This is the stuff best left to police detectives and not internet sleuths. I've talked before about my own grandfather, and how he was serial rapist who preyed on children. I wrote about him, exposed his crimes, in the book and online shortly before he died of cancer. This shit is hard to talk about even when it does happen. And there is no proof this happened, here.

I've said before, there is no happy ending in this case. Either Maura had serious reasons to leave (and she should remain hidden) or someone murdered her. My writing of True Crime Addict was a way for me to show how unhealthy our obsessions can become, and it was the beginning of my journey away from these cases and into a better life.

So, be mad, be sad. Be confused. It's an existential world. I wish there were answers.

I think Maggie and the crew are doing an excellent job gathering new facts and information in this case. Maggie's got some guts to ask the tough questions. I think by the end of the series we will all view this case in a new light.

I hope the Murrays find closure. Peace.
