    NJ - Liza Murphy, 42, Emerson, 19 Aug 2007

    I just heard about this on Fox News, and I checked here in case there was any discussion on this missing persons case.

    Liza Murphy has been missing since Sunday, August 19, from her home in Emerson, NJ. Her husband told police she left home -- stop me if you've heard this one before -- after they had an argument -- with no cell phone, no keys, no wallet. Husband has also stopped co-operating with police.

    Here's a link to some stories on the case:

    Husband also tried to jump into traffic in an "attempt" to commit suicide:

    I don't have a good feeling about this one at all..

    No, no good feelings coming from this story. What do these idiot husbands do to come up with such a lame story? "Wifey took off in a snit without a single possesion, all because she was mad at me!" It's like they are reading from a script, or maybe there is a book out there-----Killing your wife for Dummiesrecomending this scenario?

    I'll eat crow if the husband isn't involved. I really will. But red flags and whistles are just everywhere I turn.

    N.J. Police Search Reservoir for Missing Mother Liza Murphy

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,294890,00.html

    EMERSON, N.J — Authorities in Bergen County, N.J., were in the midst of an extensive search Tuesday for missing mom Liza Murphy, whose husband apparently tried to commit suicide shortly after she disappeared.

    Emerson police and other searchers combed a wooded area around the Oradell Reservoir, less than half a mile from the Murphy's house, looking for the 42-year-old mother of three who was last seen Aug. 19. About 200 people were involved in the search to rule out the reservoir area as a place where she might turn up.

    Last night Nancy Grace reported that the husband tried to committ suicide days after, by throwing himself in front of a bus, he was badly injured, however the LE felt they couldn't question him, because he was in serious condition.

    Hopefully, we can get a confession out of him after he realizes he isnt fooling anyone.

    IMO, even if she left him. Why would he put his life at stake her with three (3) small children at home. The children are currently with their Aunts and Uncles this week.

    I hope somemore information is given for the sake of these poor kids!

    I hope more information also comes out about this.
    To bad the bus never did the idiot in. Sorry I have no mercy on anyone trying to jump out in front of a bus. Especially when there are small kids left to be taken care of.

    I'm sure he did something to her.....

    One of the links I read said it was a firetruck he walked out in front of. It is a shame that these children are wondering every day what happened to their mother.

    Acutally you are right, apparently there were several vehicles (bus, firetruck, and ??)...

    I agree with Checko, I am getting pretty cynical myself!!

    Really feel bad for these women finding themselves with these losers. More awareness needs to be out there, and self defense classes.

    this is messed up!

    <SNIP>
    Details emerged Tuesday about previous suicide attempts or threats by both Murphys, as well as the troubles that strained their marriage.
    Liza Murphy, 42, faced two pending disorderly person complaints filed by her estranged brother, who lives across the street, and from a neighbor who often feuded with her, authorities said.
    Officers were called to the neighborhood half a dozen times in recent years on charges that had gone “back and forth,” said Emerson Police Sgt. George Buono.
    He also confirmed allegations by Rem and others that Liza Murphy had abused prescription drugs. “It’s certainly one aspect of the case that we’ve looked into. It’s not the overriding thing,” said Buono, who is heading the investigation into her disappearance. “It doesn’t make me believe that she ran off any more or less than if she didn’t have a drug problem.”
    Murphy had spent more than a year and a half undergoing substance abuse counseling and individual therapy, according to a court document filed Monday by the state’s Division of Youth and Family Services to gain custody of their three children.
    But a woman who says she has been best friends with Liza Murphy for 27 years dismissed the idea that she had addiction problems.
    “She wasn’t a drunk or anything or a drug addict, not at all,” said Donna Woods, a Dumont resident. “They said, ‘We want you to go,’ and she complied.”
    Woods confirmed her friend had a relationship with another man but insisted “it wasn’t sexual.”
    “It was just like friends, and maybe a little more than that. But there was no sex,” she said.

    Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

    I heard on Nancy Grace that the husband found out she had a boyfriend on the Sunday she disappeared.

    The husband has hired an attorney and he is being harrassed by the police dept. So, he is still refusing to speak to the police.

    Mother of Missing Woman Afraid She's Dead

    Police in Emerson say the investigation into the disappearance of a mother of three who went missing more than two weeks ago is starting to stall, and the woman's mother said she fears her daughter is dead.

    "My daughter and I were extremely close and, if she could, there's no way she wouldn't have contacted me," Sophia Stellatos, the mother of Liza Murphy, told the Record of Bergen County for Monday editions.

    Murphy, 42, went missing Aug. 19, without taking her pocket book, cell phone, credit cards or cigarettes; Later that week her husband, Joseph, was seriously injured when he threw himself in front of a car.

    Police Sgt. George Buono said authorities continue to interview friends of the Murphys but acknowledged that the "investigation is starting to stall somewhat."
