    Thanks for the Charley Project rundown on this case. It's helpful for dates, and facts.

    Not sure what to make of the Project mentioning that the police (LE) do not consider this case to be one of foul play. That only leaves suicide? Is this correct?

    What else could it mean other then running away which is extremely unlikely even moreso then a or b. No money. No credit cards, etc.

    I also wonder how, if they're convinced it isn't foul play, they are quoted as saying there's a 75% chance of conviction?

    Where are they known to have said this?

    If so, then my uneducated guess would be to say that today, all Prosecutors need to bow-cow to the District Attorney office, to make sure they have a solid enough case against someone that justifies spending the taxpayer money on a case (ala OJ, Robert Blake, Casey Anthony, and on and on)

    Just like with Kyron's case they have ideas perhaps even unamed suspects, but no one is going to prosecute without an air tight case these days, or one that is seen as air tight to them.

    So, if they said this, then it sounds like they have someone in mind but cannot prove it yet.

    It seems to be a rather weird way to give the public some type of update after all these years, and not the least of course the family. : (

    That contradicts the NH cold case website:

    http://doj.nh.gov/criminal/cold-case...ura-murray.htm

    Maura was twenty-one years old when she disappeared and was last seen wearing a dark jacket and jeans. Her disappearance is being treated as suspicious.

    It occurred to me while reading this, that it is carefully worded (legally crafted) and considerations to all given, especially for the family who is mentioned by this State Agency.

    It occurs to me furthermore, that Fred Murray has been on the warpath on his daughter's case very active now for many years from writing to State Senators, to higher ups, etc.

    It's probably a seemingly contradictory statement to the prior one, because of concerns that he could sue the State.

    Has Mr. M threatened to do so in the past? They may just be extra careful these days to dot the "i" and cross the "t's "

    Otherwise, I haven't a clue or idea WHY they'd be reluctant to turn over to the family what they have and had two divergent statements, but since time has passed, it could just be a reconsideration of all the facts thus far cause them to change course.

    It may be a case there of newer info (Cold Case Unit, recently formed) superceding (which I probably spelled wrong!) Charley Project's info. I don't know when the last time the latter was updated.

    Old Steve, i had a fairly new Saturn at the time (I bought it new), but I did experience a stalling situation with that car at one time (a mouse nest in the air intake). The engine would pretty much feel like it was going to die. Fortunately, I didn't experience the stalling at high speeds. I've had stalling happen in other cars, but I would pretty much try to step on the gas to keep the car revved up. If I couldn't get it to keep going, I'd slow to a stop off to the side of the road. I was more concerned with people hitting me, then me hitting them, because my actions may have seemed unpredictable to other drivers.

    In Maura's case, it did occur to me that maybe an animal had crossed in front of her vehicle before the curve or someone in the opposite lane could have went across the center line after the curve towards her and she over reacted to the situation and lost control. Just some thoughts.

    The "other man" is mentioned as having an Ex Wife who may or may not have gossiped to the LE that "here is my husband's statement about having MM in our Trailer"........Although as mentioned, that was just his sense of humor to joke about someone who the entire state is looking for.
    My husband use to have this same type of humor which personally, I never appreciated or saw as funny in the least.
    But I realize over 40 years of marriage that people are very different, and often this difference comes out in humorous approach to life and life's ironies.

    Note: I looked up the definition of ironies, because I wanted to express exactly how I felt about this situation,
    and I see the word is the correct one to use to show you how I feel about Mr. F. saying what otherwise, may be misconstrued by others as literal and factual :

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ironies
    a : the use of words to express something other than and especially the opposite of the literal meaning b : a usually humorous or sardonic literary style or form characterized by irony c : an ironic expression or utterance


    IF this then, is what others held against the man, then they (the others who did so) should wake up and smell the coffee!

    OldSteve,

    I too have often wondered if she was a wife or live-in girlfriend to Butch Atwood because I have seen her described as either or in various articles. I do know that the official police transcripts from that night refer to her as Mr. Atwood's Wife, but that doesn't neccessary make it a fact. The 911 operator could've jotted that down incorrectly (assumed she was talking to Mr. Atwood's wife).

    I believe she was referred to as his common-law wife...
