    What do you think are the chances Maura Murray is still alive? I've got it between slim and none.

    Between slim and none, closer to none.

    In my humble opinion I unfortunately think Maura is dead.

    I think Maura was upset and felt like everything was spiraling out of control (possibly depressed). She planned on taking some time to herself to think about everything when she got in the car accident, tried to run away from the scene of the accident (possibility of being drunk or having a concussion which could impair judgement), and succumbed to the elements.
    Just because her now skeletal remains haven't been found doesn't mean they aren't there.

    It's just a shame that all of these unsubstantiated 'facts' or 'breakthroughs' have convoluted everything.

    I've been following this case for a while and I do hope that her family does get closure.

    The last episode was extremely entertaining for the first 20 minutes. You should give it a listen.

    It's pretty telling that in the last episode (number 17), the hosts confess that seeing the list of items found in Maura's car was the first time they were able to see her humanity - as though the hard-driving, judgmental home life and the subsequent coping through drinking and an out-of-control eating disorder that led her to crash cars and commit petty crimes that someone might notice weren't signs of a tender, desperate humanity crying out for support and love without condition.

    Too many people see this case through the lens of story and character rather than basic human empathy. Guess these two are no exception.

    My gut feeling is that she is dead. I believed for a while that *maybe* she ran away somewhere successfully but I think that was more down to wishful thinking on my part. Yes, there have been a few people who have run away and lived off the grid for a number of years without anyone recognising them, its true. But when a young, bright, distressed female goes missing the likelihood is they never come back. Usually that is because they physically can't return, not because they simply choose not to.
    I hope I am wrong.

    Maura used to do this sort of thing. She did take off without telling people where she was going at least once in her young life, so it's somewhat understandable how the idea that she might have done so permanently might have taken root. But if you just look at this girl as a person, with all of the issues she was dealing with and the obvious signals her acting out were telegraphing despite her highly secretive nature, it's so painfully obvious that Maura was not well at all, let alone sober and sophisticated enough to pull off anything even remotely close to some of scenarios people have put forth. When this case is finally solved, if indeed it ever is, there'll be a lot of tails between a lot of legs for ever thinking such absurd solutions possible while discarding everything that Maura's actions and behavior (not to mention the people who knew her best) have been saying all along.

    I agree, Branny! I lived in the dorms when I was in college and it wasn't that uncommon for a student to have a melt down, pack up their things and leave campus. Some were gone for a week or so, some never returned. Twenty-one can be a tender age for some and not everyone is prepared to deal with the pressure and responsibility of college, a job, a boyfriend, alcohol etc. The only difference from Maura is ..they all made it safely to their destinations and Maura did not.

    I think the most likely scenario is that Maura fled the scene of the accident to avoid a DUI. A DUI for a graduate nurse can be devastating. Some state nursing boards will not allow a graduate nurse to sit for their licensing exams until they go through rehab, plead their case to the board and then enter a lengthy monitoring program. Maura had been drinking that night and I can understand her impulse to flee the scene of her crash. Sadly IMO, she just didn't make it to a safe place that night.

    It's just too bad, especially for Maura's family, that people with an agenda want to turn Maura's story into something much more convoluted than it probably ever was in real life. 'She's dead and a sociopath ..no no.. she's a survivor and pregnant.' smh The fact that it took a list of Maura's belongings in her car to "personalize" this case for the Podcasters seems to indicate that this is more about selling an entertainment product than a true heartfelt quest to find answers for the Murray family. I hope I'm wrong but threatening emails in NH and a mysterious tweet with a penny? IDK It just seems so orchestrated and the Podcasters spend way too much time explaining themselves and talking about "trolls".

    Poor Maura. I hope her family finds closure too.

    All just MHO

    IMO, if Maura fell victim to foul play I would imagine the perp to be a single male age 30-45 at the time, a local who lives alone in the general area, perhaps self employed or a job that requires frequent local travel like a plow driver, public works etc.

    At the present time now this person could very well be in his 50s but regardless I guess what I'm trying to say is that I doubt anyone legitimately connected to her disappearing is out on YouTube or Twitter toying with us via cryptic clues.

    If that is indeed the case I doubt someone involved is going to bring attention to it after all these years of silence...but who knows...

    I think she met with foul play too, but I've always thought she knew the perp because she got in a car with him/her. (I think him.) Do you think she trusted someone she didn't know who offered her a ride, or do you think she was taken?

    And no, no one involved (certainly not the guilty party) is toying with the podcasters or bloggers. I think the podcasters read way too much into the photograph of a penny. Everyone knows what year Maura was born.
