One of those guys has to know something more. Imo
    "a black guy with dreads" .....how convenient. They set her up or know who did it, IMO.

    However, that wouldn't be congruent to the LISK theory which I more more inclined to believe. There was and always will be independent "providers" an they all don't just get chopped up because of turf issues. It's not worth the jail time. Same as being a bookie. You have a guy that doesn't pay, you don't break his arms with a ball bat anymore. You just intimidate him into paying or he'll rat you out and you're going to jail.

    Today would have been Maureen's 35th birthday. May we find justice for her soon.

    How sad.

    Only slightly related note- I went to a gathering at a friend's office in the Film Center building a few days ago and it's pretty much unrecognizable inside from what the halls and offices used to look like when I worked in that building. Time passes. Thought of Maureen and how long it's been.

    Friend and I had a pet personal POI (google ugly george) based on seeing him in and out of the building for years, but after much research determined he didn't have the means and ways to dispose of bodies out on LI.

    Something that jumped out at me while watching episode 2 of The Killing Season: why was Maureen at Penn Station, if she was trying to catch a train back home to Connecticut? I'm from Connecticut and trains to there only leave from Grand Central, not Penn Station. Penn Station trains do go to Long Island, though... maybe Maureen was taking a train out to LI instead to meet someone (a guy she knew or a john)?

    I may be mixing up dates/years, but weren't there a bunch of rail / line closures at Grand Central in the summer of 2007? If so, maybe she had to go through Penn. Or maybe she decided to take a bus back since she'd mentioned getting robbed (or burned) of all her money ...
    I may be entirely wrong about this, though and in either case your observation is intriguing.

    I grew up in Connecticut and then lived in NYC for 11 years and I'm almost positive it's not even possible for a train from Connecticut (MetroNorth) to go to Penn Station. They're trying to make it possible in the future but the infrastructure doesn't currently exist.
    The bus idea is a good possibility, though. She could have been catching a bus from the Port Authority Bus Station to Connecticut instead, which is near Penn Station. But then people usually say they're at the "Port Authority" versus Penn Station. A bus would probably be cheaper and get her closer to where she needed to go, although it would take longer.

    I never caught that, and you're right. There are no trains from Penn Station to CT. My family is from CT, I am from NY, and my cousins live on LI. I have to go to Penn Station to visit them. Penn Station holds LIRR, New Jersey Transit, and subways.

    Grand Central has subways and Metro North, which goes into NY and CT.

    Port Authority has subways and the bus terminal. I have used buses from here to go to Jersey and as far as Virginia.

    However - because I live closer to Metro North - when I worked in NYC, I would take the 2 train (subway) from Penn Station one stop north to Times Square/42nd Street, then catch the S train (shuttle subway) over to Grand Central, where I could get on Metro North. So that might have been Maureen's plan.

    I believe Maureen may hold the key to who LISK is. I truly believe it was someone Maureen knew. She went outside for a cigarette and past client or someone she knew was stalking her and ran into her outside of penn, made it look like a coincidence. He maybe offered to give her a ride to CT. I think it had to be someone she knew because she went willingly. Someone had to see her get into a car outside of Penn.

    I never caught that either. I live on the W. coast. Interesting.

    JMO, She needed money to get home to her family in Ct. I think she may have tried one more trick...maybe she did come across someone she knew...but I believe her prime motivation was to get home, and she needed cash to do that.

    A poster explained in a upthread how to get to CT from Penn Station using Amtrak.

    Maureen told her sister she had money to get home.

    The killer made late night dates. Its possible Maureen received a late night call.

    12:30 P.M. Maureen calls Sara's phone, "barely an hour later." Sara , annoyed, does not answer, she just wants to sleep.

    Later that night Time Unknown: Big Al calls Sara from NYC and tells her that Maureen called him and told him she was robbed of 5,000 by the guy with the dreads who had approached them the day before in front of the hotel. Al states that Maureen called him because she could not get a hold of Sara. The only call from Maureen to Sara was within an hour after Sara left, around 12:30 P.M. So did Maureen get robbed in the morning or shortly after noon?

    Time Unknown: Missy hangs up with Al and calls Maureen leaving her a message. Maureen does not pick up.

    11:30 P.M. Maureen calls Missy from Penn station asking for a ride. Missy states its too late.

    A Moments Later[/B] Missy calls Will and asks him for a ride, Will had to work in the A.M. so no dice.

    A Moment Later Maureen calls Missy back and tells her she will "take the next train' home and has enough money to do so.

    Tuesday:

    Maureen checks out of the Super 8 Hotel (According to hotel records).

    Missy calls Maureen and gets no answer.

    Wednesday: Will calls Maureen and her phone goes straight to voicemail this time. Will Calls Missy to tell her.

    Thursday:
    Missy and Will call the Norwich Police who do not take them seriously when they find out Maureen is an escort in "financial trouble."

    Will and a friend travel to the Super 8 in Times Square and are told that Maureen checked out on Tuesday and not on Monday

    Not sure of date
    Maureen's cell phone pings near Fire Island.
    Bumping this old snipped post for the rough timeline.

    Two day's or so after Maureen disappeared her brother and friend were on it. They were told she checked out on Tuesday rather than Monday. I still haven't read this book but do we have a more precise check out time? If she was at Penn station looking to go home wouldn't she have already checked out? Was the guy out late after midnight on a Monday night trolling the street or was she lured on an out-call by someone in the early hours after she checked out. It was reported that a cop was one of the last to contact Maureen. Emphasis on one of. That particular motel, I'm wondering just how much "work" went on at this place and if it was known for it. Just kicking around some of the unknowns.
