    At some point, Maura packed up her entire dorm room and left the boxes stacked in the room, and also left a note for her boyfriend.
    This information has had some life on the internet, but I have seen it refuted in credible sources. I will search and come back with a link.

    OK. Here is a quotation from a website that state, erroneously, that Maura left a note for her boyfriend:

    Sometime between Sunday and Monday morning, she packed up all her belongings in her dorm room, to include taking all her pictures off the walls, taking everything out of her bureaus, [and] put them all in boxes [and] left [them] on her bed," Scarinza told WCVB-TV, "[She] left a personal note to her boyfriend on top of the boxes."
    http://someoneismissing.com/massachu...ura-murray.htm

    Apparently, as we see below, the website may be correctly quoting Lt. Scarinza, but what he said isn't accurate. according to the Murray family and the boyfriend. Peabody, a WS poster who is an expert on the case, cites The Daily Collegian as a source for this statement about a letter TO the boyfriend.

    From The Daily Collegian http://www.dailycollegian.com/vnews/...0?in_archive=1
    ' Scarinza told WCVB-TV, "[She] left a personal note to her boyfriend on top of the boxes." '
    In the same post, Peabody reveals the contradictory statement made by Lt. Scarinza:
    Lt. John Scarinza authored a press release on June 8th, 2004. The entire press release is online at a Vermont State Police website regarding Brianna Maitland. Please note not only his contradiction, but also the difference in the actions of the Vermont State Police in Brianna's case and the actions of the New Hampshire State in Maura's case.

    From The June 8th Scarinza Press Release
    http://www.dps.state.vt.us/vtsp/pres...4_maitland.htm

    "putting everything neatly in boxes and putting all the boxes on her bed along with a personal note she had recently received from her boyfriend."

    A note *to* her boyfriend and a note *from* her boyfriend are certainly two different things.
    As to the Police never contradicting themselves, Lt. John Scarinza stated three times on The Chronicle, a television show out of Boston that Maura had left a letter to her boyfriend and implied it was a sucide note. His statement was printed in the Sept 9, 2004 issue of The Daily Collegian. This was a statement that Lt. Scarinza made repeatedly, yet the boyfriend and Fred Murray deny the existance of any such letter....
    This example illustrates why all research, but internet research in particular, is fraught with peril in terms of knowing what is accurate and true information. The person who put together the "someone is missing" website, as well as our poster, relied on a statement made by LE, but that statement was not true. It was a misstatement. And then our poster repeats it here, and someone picks it up from there....

    MM's Saturn

    The Saturn is still in the impound lot at Troop F, at least as of about 2 months ago, still sitting in the same place. Maybe it has moved now that they are investigating again? Never saw any mention of fingerprints taken from the trunk.
    Good to know - thank you for that post...Well, I think that Troop F should see if they find Maura's fingerprints inside the trunk - I'm sure they are wanting my advice (LOL). But if they are... take a close look at places that normally wouldn't be touched...Like on the inside lid and on the interior latch release. If she hid and got to a busier traffic area (route 10) - she could have continued her trek to ???? okay, I don't know where -- but I do know that she vanished in a span of 10-15 minutes on a rural road that according to Mr Atwood only had about 3-4 cars pass while he sat in his bus just 200 or so yards from MM's car accident. Something odd happened that night -- and so much of what it was starts with MM's reason for leaving Amherst. Just hard to believe that of the 3 or 4 cars driving by, she got in the one driven by a predator. In my mind there is much more to this than we have learned from U-Mass.

    If she did hide - then the LE in the little village of Woodsville can broaden their search and.... learn a lot more about what was motivating Maura that night.

    I've known about this case for only 7 days and know that this will haunt me until she's found. I went to sleep last night still asking myself, "What happened to Maura?" ...but I realized really I only want to know -- if it's good. Heartbreaking and very scary possibilities.

    With the return of warm weather, hikers in the region may discover something. I hope there is some way to notify them as to the situation.

    OK, so RF lives on the road where Maura was last seen/wrecked. Dogs lose her scent close to his house. He claims, to have seen a woman fitting Maura's description some 4-5 miles away at roughly 8pm? He doesn't initially share this with police and claims to have heard or seen nothing the night of her wreck. He refuses to let cadaver dogs search his property, on multiple ocassions.

    Oh, and he's a CONTRACTOR? Most contractor's I know own their own business and heck, I'd give myself an alibi if I needed one. Anybody check any of the construction sites his company worked on around that time or since then? With dogs?
    There are a select few people who have raised my suspicions, and he is one of them.
    Honestly I stepped away from this case for awhile as it was consuming my every thought. When my husband deployed I couldn't afford the energy and time to keep focused on this case. I have binders and binders of info, as well as files and files on my computer...just on Maura. I have never gotten this involved with a missing person case in my life. Because I took that time off, my memory of some specifics may have faded slightly. But I do know for sure that not much looking was done into ANYone and that includes the contractor.
    LE gave evidence to family immediately, then took it back again a month later. They didn't even call the last person Maura spoke to until a year later, at which time she couldn't recall the conversation. These are just two very small details which were done incorrectly in the giant pile of cluster.... that they called an investigation.
    Just copying over armywife's post, including the quote to which she was responding. The things that weren't done in this investigation that should have been done boggle the mind.

    Do you have any idea if the family ever saw the ATM video, in which Maura supposedly withdraw money before the trip? I am very interested in how she was wearing her hair, because of the statement that the person at the NH accident site had "her" hair down.

    I think it is somewhat uncomfortable to wear a bun in your hair, while driving that far in a car, because of the seat's headrest. However, It would be interesting to know if she had her hair up in the ATM photo.

    I'm suspicious of the contractor, as well. Although, he could very well be just a citizen trying to be helpful. I read somewhere that his story had changed, perhaps his memory wasn't clear. I think most people in that area would take notice to someone walking or running down that road in the dark. I think it is an unusual occurrence, so maybe that is why he took notice. However, what crossed my mind was the fact the contractor could have been trying to put Maura 5 miles out and running along the road. In other words, when the police dogs stopped 100 ft. up the road from her car, resulting in the police speculating that she excepted a ride, the contractor may have wanted to change the direction of the investigation with his story. He lives very close to where she was possibly picked up. It makes me wonder, if HE was the one, who offered her a ride.

    This is an excerpt from an old Boston Globe article on a psychic reading of the Maura Murray case:

    "Baron said yesterday that after speaking with Fred Murray on the phone, she saw visions of Maura Murray and received messages from her in the form of thoughts.

    Baron said she believes Murray hitched a ride with "a clean-cut looking man" in a truck following her car accident the night of Feb. 9. The man then sexually assaulted her and buried her body in a sparsely wooded area that may be a construction site, Baron said.

    Her assailant, Baron added, has killed at least one other woman whose body is buried close to Murray's. "He happened to be driving by her. It was an opportunity. That's the thrill for him -- he never knows where the thrill will be," Baron said."

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/mas...al_of_psychic/

    Pretty strange . . makes one think of the contractor!

    The psychic reading does seem plausible but one thing I never understood about that theory is Murray's interaction with Atwood. Why would she reject Atwood's help and then voluntarily jump into someone's car for help? She could have been taken by force I suppose or there could have been something about Atwood that made her uneasy but that aspect just never made sense to me.

    Perhaps I'm overthinking it.

    The only way I can account for her taking one person's help and leaving another's would be her perhaps irrational urge to get away from what was a second accident within a week, especially if she had been drinking, even just drinking a little.

    But this case always puzzles me.

    I agree

    It makes perfect sense to me that she reject some old guys help, I mean she's a young woman with a brain in her head, any normal young woman would be uneasy and I agree with you.

    I think she jumped into someones car, I think they were young and there was a woman in the vehicle so she felt safe. How else would she vanish so quickly?

    I don't beleive any of that suicide crap, or that she ran off into the woods and sucumbed to the elements.

    Somebody young came along, someone she thought she could relate to, or a couple, a man and a woman.

    I think she's buried in the area, and there are a couple local scumbags that know where.

    I also think they follow her case online, forums, websites....wondering if that day will come when they will be caught. No regard for who she was, or how much she meant to her family and friends, and how big of a hole her absence has left in this world.

    These innocent people dissapearing is an epidemic and it chokes me so bad.
