    Could you post the email address?
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    "The Line-Up" does not have its' own email address.

    I am going to send my thank-you to both of the addresses posted on the Fox News Website http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,77538,00.html

    Also, Greta Van Sustern had Tom Shamshak on her show on Friday, Jan 06, 2006

    It is still not too late to send her a thank-you. It seems to me that since Natalee Holloway has gone missing, Greta has begun to focus on most missing persons stories - even ones that I do not hear of except on her show (and ususally here at Websleuths)
    On the Record with Greta Ontherecord@foxnews.com

    It couldn't hurt if we sent emails to all of the email addresses listed - asking for additional coverage. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,77538,00.html

    This is FINALLY some good news!

    In so much that I'm glad that more "eyes" are going to be taking a dispassionate look at Maura's case-people with solid investigative skills that will definitely be needed to crack her case!

    Good luck to the Murray and Rausch families in their quest to get the info from LE-having followed Maura's case from the very beginning, I know Fred Murray tried before to get the info and was rebuffed-even after myself and others tried emailing the Governor of NH asking him to intercede and give Fred the access he was requesting. At this point, I believe the ONLY way that anyone is going to see the questionable investigation of LE is for a lawsuit to be brought and for it to be successful.

    I'm also happy to hear that the "20/20" segment was rescheduled. I had tuned in on the 6th and was very disappointed when it didn't air. But whenever it ends up showing, I'll be tuned in!

    The "thank you" to the media outlets is a good idea-as you say, it lets them know that folks are paying attention and that there is interest. My local newpaper the "Greensboro (NC) News and Record", today(1/8/06), ran a front page article highlighting 11 unsolved missing persons cases from our area. Most are male, non-caucasian victims who have been missing anywhere from a few months to quite a few years. Here is a link to the article

    """"SNIP""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
    "At this time we have no reason to suspect foul play other than she's disappeared. We're concerned about that, but we're tracking down all the leads that are coming in and interviewing as many people and friends as we can," says Vt. State Police Lt. Leo Bachand.

    State police say there is no physical evidence of a crime. But the detective division is not waiting to get involved.

    "Usually the uniformed division would start on this and we would get called eventually, now we've stepped it up a little more," explains Bachand. "We have more resources, more time we can devote, where the uniformed guys are more emergency response and they have other duties with traffic and other stuff. We can commit our time and resources to a case by case basis, one case at a time."

    The change-- a direct response to criticism that detectives waited too long to get involved in the disappearances of Maura Murray in Haverhill, New Hampshire and Brianna Maitland in Montgomery, both two years ago.

    "Because of that we're trying to get right on that. The family deserves that. It's their daughter, their sister, they're concerned """"""""""SNIP"""""""""""""""""""

    --------------------------------------------
    This is from an article about a missing woman in Albany,VT. Tina has been missing since Jan. 6. Thread has been started about her.

    So glad to see that all the work the Murray's and Maitland's have done is not taken in vain. Kudos.

    I'm glad that those private investigators have offered to look into this case.
    For the police to saw they don't see any evidence of foul play makes me want to scream. Maura didn't have any reason to just take off never to return.

    Maura wouldn't go with the bus driver and so it makes no sense that minutes later she would willingly get into a vehicle with another stranger. I don't think she went anywhere willingly with anyone. Someone must have come right after the bus driver left.

    For the sake of Maura's family I wish that she would be found. It would be wonderful if she were alive somewhere but it's been a long time and she would surly have called her parents.

    Top New Hamshire Paper Covers Dad's Fight to Obtain Records
    From the Union Leader:



    Dad fights for documents in disappearance of daughter

    By LORNA COLQUHOUN
    Union Leader Correspondent



    Haverhill — The pile of documents relating to the disappearance of a Massachusetts woman nearly two years ago contains 2,500 pages, and her father wants to take a look at them.

    Fred Murray, whose daughter, Maura, vanished from a rural road in Swiftwater in February 2004, was in Grafton County Superior Court yesterday morning, asking a judge to release those documents, a move he believes will help him in his own search.

    “We want to take a fresh look and start over,” Murray said after a brief court hearing on his request for release of information pertaining to the case. “This gives me my best hope and my only hope. There might be something in there that means something to me that might be the key.”

    <SNIP to CONFORM TO COPYRIGHT LAWS>

    Citing Supreme Court cases, Ervin said the fact that the case has always been categorized as a missing person, rather than a criminal matter, is significant.

    “The state has never characterized this as an ongoing criminal case,” Ervin said, and investigators have never given any reason as to why documents cannot be released. “The overriding concern is that she has been missing for two years and there is still no information about what happened.”


    <SNIP to CONFORM TO COPYRIGHT LAWS>

    Assistant Attorney General Daniel Mullen, who was accompanied by Jeff Strelzin, the head of the state’s homicide bureau, said the investigation is ongoing and that it “could have criminal overtones.”

    <SNIP to CONFORM TO COPYRIGHT LAWS>

    A team of private investigators is taking up the case of the disappearance, and Fred Murray said there is basic information he needs, such as dispatch logs, that would help create a timeline of what happened between the time his daughter was involved in a minor car accident and the time the first police officer arrived at the scene.

    “I’m standing here trying to move every stone I can budge,” Murray said before leaving the courthouse yesterday. “Maybe I can get a break. I could sure use it.”

    Good. That certainly seems like a move in the right direction - to give him information.

    Unlike in cases where family members are suspect, and so giving information would arm the felons with defense strategies, I can't see a problem at this point with including Fred Murray in the loop.

    To keep him out comes off as mean-spirited. LE seems out of avenues to persue, it's time to give them to Mr. Murray.

    Judge denies father's records request in case of missing daughter

    (Haverhill, NH - AP) — A New Hampshire judge has denied a request from the father of a missing woman to review confidential police files in the case.
    Maura Murray disappeared after a minor car accident in northern New Hampshire in February 2004.

    Fred Murray of Hanson believes his daughter was a victim of foul play and sued to gain access to investigatory files. His suit claimed that police, the attorney general and the governor violated state and federal public information laws by not releasing the investigative files.

    LEDGER UPDATE: WHERE IS MAURA? 2 YEARS LATER, MISSING HANSON WOMAN’S FAMILY CLINGS TO HOPE, WAITS FOR ANSWERS

    The Patriot Ledger




    Laurie Murray has had the same bedtime ritual every night for the past two years. She prays to the Catholic patron saint of lost things, hoping that she’ll awaken to good news. ‘‘What I do every night is pray to St. Anthony,’’ Murray said. ‘‘I have a statue right here.’’

    It will be two years tomorrow since Laurie’s daughter, Hanson native Maura Murray, a student at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, disappeared after a minor traffic accident in Haverhill,


    <snip>

    Murray’s boyfriend, Army Capt. William Rausch, said he still has a special place in his heart for Maura, the girl he planned to marry.

    Still single, Rausch, 25, said he finds strength by dedicating himself to his job at Fort Sill, Okla., and staying close with friends from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he and Murray met. Some of his colleagues knew Murray from the year she spent at West Point and have fond memories of her, Rausch said.

    ‘‘It seems evident that whatever happened is concrete,’’ Rausch said, ‘‘but I still love her like many others do, and I feel lucky to have had what we had.’’
