88 Episodes In, the Missing Maura Murray Podcast Delivers Its Most Important Episode

Kudos to Lance & Tim. This week's episode of Missing Maura Murray features an interview with Maura's brother, Kurt. Among other things, Kurt gives the best explanation for the rag in the tailpipe and goes a long way toward explaining Kathleen's odd behavior. What a brave young man. Check it out.

Renner to Hold Live Q&A Monday at 9

A lot has happened in front of and behind the scenes in the last few months. I figured it was time to do a live Q&A. I'll jump on my Facebook page tomorrow (Monday) at 9 p.m. Eastern. Here's the link. Ask me your questions, I'll tell you no lies.

Redditor Claims To Be Maura's Therapist, Says She Is Alive

I want to believe, like most of you, that Maura is alive and well but this seems a little too good to be true. Last night, someone claiming to be Maura Murray's psychiatrist posted on Reddit, saying she was alive and well in Canada and left her life to escape her boyfriend.

In the spirit of Reddit, other commenters harassed the poster until they deleted it. Here are screen caps.

If it's true, hopefully the person will step forward with some kind of verification (I have communicated with the poster and promised anonymity). If it's a hoax - granted, much more likely at this point - then this person has interfered with an investigation.

Page 9 "Found" **UPDATED**

Earlier today, I was emailed a blurry copy of Page 9 from Bill Rausch's phone bill. If you'll recall, that page was missing from the records given to John Smith years ago. One theory was that page 9 could have information about roaming calls made by Maura Murray.

If the page is legit, it appears that Page 9 was actually the first billing page for Bill Rausch's phone calls (he and Maura were on a shared plan).

This case of course does not hinge on Page 9 and never has. What we know is that Bill Rausch, Maura's boyfriend, is still the subject of a Grand Jury investigation in D.C. and he has never publicly responded to allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in the offices of Ray Group International and choked a woman at Fort Sill six months after Maura's disappearance. Is this alleged abuse unrelated? Of course not. At the very least it provides context for Maura’s desire to get away from a boyfriend that her friends on the track team called “controlling."

A special thank you the Irregulars who sent me pages 1 - 3 of Rausch's phone records. Take a look. If legit, it shows Maura did not make any roaming calls that month. As long as the total number of roaming minutes match up to Bill's total calls, I'm satisfied that this finally puts to rest this piece of the mystery.
