    Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if at this point it wasn’t as sinister as I have previous thought. Maybe with a mild concussion and fear of what the police would do that were coming with the drinking/driving, accident, and car issues she purposely wandered off in the opposite direction and got lost and couldn’t fare the weather. Maybe she had gotten farther than any of the searches anticipated. Maybe the head injury caused amnesia and she is out there somewhere not knowing who she is. You would think if that were the case someone would have seen her in the last almost 12 years, but you never know.

      I feel very much the same as you do, however, people just don’t disappear from the face of the earth on their own because they are afraid of a dui.

    I think maybe there was a cover up, perhaps an accident, like the bus driver hit her, seems the closer you get to solving it, something weirder shows up on the radar. Now an police SUV apparently was there before bus driver so idk.

    I believe the police facts are suspicious. He didn’t say anything? What’s going on there?

    Great post. I believe that the online community will solve this case. The mystery of Maura Murray’s disappearance has really picked up steam in the last few years. John Smith, a private investigator and former police officer raised some very interesting points in his recent video. I hope you do not mind me sharing it with you as it is definitely worth watching – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxEZvow_oyo&app=desktop

    I think the more time passes with this, the more outlandish and improbable theories are considered. Look up one of the many missing persons cases that involve someone missing for over a decade. 9 times out of 10, if they are found they are deceased. It’s quite rare to be found alive at this point. It’s possible, but the chances are extremely slim once 10 years have passed. And when you compare it to those found deceased, I’d go so far to say the chance is miniscule.

    The easiest and simplest explanation has always been that she left the accident scene on foot to get help and avoid a DUI. She crossed paths with someone along the way, be it 50 yards or a mile away and that resulted in her demise.

    We are almost certainly looking for a local single male, probably divorced, who lives in the area alone with a large plot of private land. It’s a needle in a haystack because it’s likely this is a loner who has never spoke of it to anyone.

    Everything points to Maura suffering from a psychological-based partial-amnesia after the car accident, brought-about by the repeated Bad Luck she was experiencing in the most recent past, and possibly a concussion too. Basically, she subconsciously ran away from her once-self, via programming her subconscious that she did not want to be her any longer, when going to sleep later and when she awoke, she had partial-amnesia, brought about by her subconscious blocking certain memories to keep her from remembering who she was. Plus, Maura was obviously pregnant, which was at least partly to blame for her recent Bad Luck, via the Gilligan Effect, which Michael McStay (McStay family murders) suffers from as well and he has his mother to thank for it. I have no clue how Maura ended-up jinxed with Bad Luck like she was?

    She was going to have an abortion somewhere in the Burlington area, with a doctor-friend she met at the place she vacationed at with her parents, that’s what the 4G was for, not a car, but when she came to the I-89 turn-off, she kept going and took the Hwy 302 exit instead, possibly intentional, but she was supposed to turn Left on 302 but when she was sitting at the Stop Sign, with the Graveyard ahead and off to the right and since she had missed her exit earlier, that may have been intentional so as to give her more time to think about the situation, then when she as sitting at the Stop Sign, she was probably thinking about how she couldn’t seem to get anything RIGHT and since her turn was supposed to be Left, she may have decided to go Right instead, to see where it led her and about 5 miles down the road, she took another Right onto Hwy 112, then shortly thereafter, she wrecked her car. So while she was standing there in the middle of the road, on that VERY cold night, she knew if she stuck around she’d be going to jail for a DUI, on top of being pregnant, and the answer she got was to RUN-Forest-RUN, so she did.

    2 Rights (turns) + 1 more Right (running) = 3 Rights + Valentine’s Week (Cupid) = Changed her Bad Luck to Good Luck

    So the reason you cannot find Maura is partly because she’s hiding, although the reason she’s hiding is technically delusional, but the main reason you can’t find her is she is now a Leprechaun. So to find her you have to CHEAT.

    She’s most likely still using her Birthdate for ID purposes, although she may have added or subtracted up-to 3 years, she should still be using her original birthday of May 4th but the year will be anywhere between 1979-to-1985, with most likely a one-year subtraction to her age and 1983, since it would have placed her at 21 when she gave birth 6 months or so later. Therefrom, using facial-recognition software, check against ALL Drivers Licenses/State ID’s of White Females with a May 4th 1979-to-1985 birthdate and that should uncover her but if that’s unsuccessful, then look at all Birth Certificates issued to White Females 22 years of age +/- 3 years and between June-to-December 2004, starting with August, then September, then July, the October, then June, then November, then December last. The baby should have been born around August 15th, so searching ALL August births FIRST should uncover her, starting the search within a 500-mile radius of where she crashed her car and expanding outward nationwide and search each age-group separately, starting with 22, then 21, then 23, then 20, then 24, then 19, then 25 last.

    Maura WAS without-a-doubt pregnant. The events leading-up to that night says she was experiencing all of the Bad Luck because she had the pregnancy on her mind, pre-occupying it, which made her more prone to error. Plus, when she was sitting at that Stop Sign @ I-91 & Hwy 302, she had been drinking alcohol for a nice period of time, so she was intoxicated to some degree and that could have assisted her in deciding to turn Right instead of Left, as well as assisting her in missing the I-89 exit earlier, as well as being to blame for her wrecking her car, then the alcohol also helped her to get the answer to RUN-Forest-RUN so she wouldn’t be spending the night in the pokey, because the way she pleaded with the bus driver NOT to call the police, says she knew she would peg-out on the breathalyzer, so that’s why she didn’t want the police called but she realized they would be called anyways so she ran but she has left a backdoor in-place to find her, if you will just look.

    Then, after you have found her, tell Fred I need to talk to him about a lawsuit. I’ll wait till Maura has been found to explain that but something Fred also needs to understand up-front is Maura is NO LONGER WITH US, she changed her name and whatever her new name is, is now her name; Maura is no longer her name. She shouldn’t change it back to Maura or the Bad Luck will come-back, so she will be keeping her new name and that will be the ONLY difficulty Fred will have with his daughter, plus, her Good Luck will rub-off on him if he accepts that she has a new name and he does his BEST to ALWAYS call her by her new name and never her old name, so as to NOT jinx/tarnish her Good Luck that her new identity has given her.

    All of my conclusions are based on Science and Math, via Synchronicity and Open System Math, and from such, the Laws of the Universe says Maura is now a Leprechaun and you’ve been trying to catch a Leprechaun this entire time, that’s why you’ve had so much trouble but if you will SIMPLY recognize Maura for who she became, a Leprechaun, it shouldn’t be hard for you to understand that her Good Luck is what has hidden her from everyone this entire time but the KID is the GUARANTEED backdoor to finding her, if the Photo ID birthdate search doesn’t find her. Plus, if she completely changed her birthdate, she probably changed it to February 14, 1983, in honor of Valentine’s Day, which was just a couple of days away from the night she ran from her life, and Valentine’s Day coming-up probably played into her mental condition as well, since it would be SERIOUS BAD LUCK to get an abortion near-or-on Valentine’s Day, and that had to be on her mind, since females are hopeless-romantics and extremely emotional as well, then toss-in the mood-swings from being pregnant, and it ROYALLY SUCKED TO BE HER THAT NIGHT.

    She OBVIOUSLY didn’t want to have the abortion!

    I can’t wait for her to be found! I so look forward to having her as a friend and her Good Luck rubbing-off on me, as well as rubbing-off on Fred and You and ALL of her friends! 😉

    I’m a Clairvoyant and I can tell you from following this case for soo long feeling the energy of Maura and the actions of the individuals participateing in the effect of her disappearance I feel the energy is a individual who claims himself to be as a farmer that knows where she is and for her abduction and disappearance. Her abduction is not the area where her car was found but where Maura was walking to find help. I think Maura was taken out of the area and the police need to look for her outside of the area where her car was located to find her because I’m not picking up her energy around her car or where the accident took place.

    My gut feeling for the past decade is that this was simply a crime of opportunity with Maura either taking a ride and/or going to the home of the wrong person. Perhaps leaving a lot of the small details that have been discussed and obsessed about merely inconsequential. This idea is nothing new and certainly death by stranger has happened before many times. However, friends and acquaintances are a possibility too.

    Though I have been open to ideas of police involvement and again no matter how unlikely or improbable it is, it has happened before.

    Regardless where you stand, the girl is missing without a trace and has been for 12 years now. That alone brings a lot of unlikely scenarios into the realm of possibility.

    With that said, the mystery of what happened to Maura lies in how she traveled after the accident. We find that part out and we have essentially solved it.

    I have followed this case ever since it first aired on Unsolved Mysteries. Mr. Murray, you, Maura’s mom, other family members and friends have my utmost love and respect. I spent time back in the late 70’s and mid 80’s volunteering my time helping to look for missing kids and adults. The Non-profit agency was known as the Paul & Lisa Program formerly based in Westbrook, CT. It was during a time when there were no internet tools to help. All we had was phones, police/FBI and perhaps eye witness accounts to assist us in our mission. As of now, it has been 12 yrs. since Maura’s been missing. The head injury she sustained obviously caused either a contusion or concussion which has possibly caused shock and a form of amnesia. Perhaps the fear of being in trouble with the police and not being able to return to her car, she perhaps began experiencing Hypothermia, providing she was not picked up by anyone. 2004, cell phones were in use. I can’t imagine the bus driver not carrying one, considering he was in charge of students riding the bus unless the area she was seen in was a dead zone for cell signals. Has any family member or friend contacted a Medium such as John Edward, James VanPraagh, Rosemary Altea who has some kind of retreat in upper New England, or Theresa Caputo, the Long Island Medium, Chris Fleming, Chip Coffey, etc.. I have actually seen these people who help in situations such as this. If one of my kids, family member or friends were missing, yes, I would prefer to rely on actual reports and proven ways and means involved in the investigation yet, I would eventually turn to Intuitive Counsel as well as rely on my own Intuition. I pray for Maura’s family and friends that her case finally be solved. Almost from the beginning, I have never felt positive as to what may have occurred to Maura yet, I can’t legally say anything due to the possibility of being accused of being involved in which case I was not. My husband’s job transferred us to western/central IN from Old Saybrook, CT in 2002. I was able to assist and attend a search party for another missing girl, Lauren Spierer who went missing a few years ago from IU in Bloomington, IN. I know she is no longer alive and some of her “friends” know more than what they admitted to. There were drugs and alcohol involved. I commend you, Mr. Murray on never giving up. It’s vital you and whomever else may be assisting you find the truth to what happened to Maura. I will continue to offer loving prayers. I wish I could help further. God Bless.

    Such a sad case. I agree with you that some scumbag probably took her. That has always been my feeling. To this day, I still wonder if someone is keeping her against her will. Even though I don’t know Maura or her family, I am a parent…. And can only imagine the pain and anguish. I still pray that she will be found and give this family the much needed answers they deserve. I live basically on the other side of the river and through the woods not far from where the ribbon is on the tree. It’s way too close to home and my heart breaks for her and her family every time I travel past the tree with the ribbon. I never pass there without wondering, once again, where she is and thinking of her and her family. May God Bless Maura and her family and bring them answers and peace, Amen.

    First I want to say I have been following this story a lot from the start. Your daughter is beautiful. Every time I hear it I still think the bus driver. If all is what he says is true. Why didn’t he stay with her. He knew the area he lived there. He knew it was a bad curve he knew it was cold and he knew she was alone and he knew she was along way away from home. Couldn’t he have called it in on his bus radio and stayed with her till help arrived? He would have been able to keep her safe if she wouldn’t go with him. Any one else in their right mind would not have left her. It’s heartbreaking when you can’t get answers. But it was obvious she was hurt why would you leave her. It just makes no sense. I hope with all my heart you get peace with this and find your beautiful daughter. May God embrace you and keep you near. <3 Joyce

HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL DATA

CMP implements commercially reasonable security measures to help protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. Except for membership directories, membership lists and registration lists, and the sharing of information as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we restrict access to Personal Data to certain companies who need the data to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals or partner organizations are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

 

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is fully secure. Accordingly, and despite our reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, CMP cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the Personal Data you transmit to us, or to or from our online Sites. If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us.

 

Certain areas of the Sites require the use of a user ID, email address, or password as an additional security measure that helps protect your Personal Data.  To help you protect your privacy, these Sites have tools to help you log in and log out.

ACCESSING, CHANGING AND DELETING PERSONAL INFORMATION

We rely on you to update and correct your Personal Data.  If you are a user of our Sites, subscriber to [CMP product], purchaser of CMP products and services, you can review, update and correct your information directly on CMP’s website or by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Information” section below.

 

Typically, we retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.  This may include retaining your Personal Data indefinitely, even after you are no longer a CMP member, in order to provide you with future marketing opportunities and other purposes, as well as to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce any of our agreements.  

 

Please note that you can request, at any time, that we delete your Personal Data.  All requests must be directed to the contact in the “Contact Information” section below.  We can decide to delete your Personal Data if we believe that the data is incomplete, inaccurate, or that our continued use and storage are contrary to our obligations to other members, individuals, or third parties.  When we delete your Personal Data, it will be removed from our active databases or anonymized so that the data is no longer identified with you, but the data may remain in our archives if CMP determines that it is not practical or possible to delete it.

Your Personal Data is processed in the United States, where privacy laws may be less stringent than the laws in your country and where the government, courts, or law enforcement may be able to access your data.  By submitting your Personal Data to us, you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your Personal Data in the United States.

You, as the data subject, have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data does not comply with legal requirements.

In the event we determine the occurrence of a data security incident, we will notify you by email, US mail, telephone, or other means as permitted by law.

If you have questions, comments, or complaints concerning our privacy practices or if you wish to change, access, or remove your Personal Data, please contact us as indicated below.  We will attempt, where practical, to respond to your requests and to provide you with additional privacy related information.
