I Smell A Rat – A Dirty Rat At That

Please watch this 10 minute press conference from April 3rd 2019

Listen carefully to the very wisely chosen words of Strelzin during the conference. Also take note of the body language of FBI Detective Phil Christiano, it looked like he was going to say something and then Strelzin started speaking and  Col. Wagner gave the Christiano the nod.

There was a small presence of NHSP and the FBI at the 92 Wild Ammonoosuc location on April 1st and 2cd. Locals reported that there was a black work trailer parked there as well as a van. It is my thought that the actual major excavation was done on April 2cd and the April 3rd event was nothing more than a Dog and Pony Show for the media frenzy. Who notified all the media, this was supposed to be a secret according to sources.

So they let all this media, the Murray family and the team as well as bystanders stay at the scene for about 3 or 4 hours before they instructed everyone they would have to leave the scene, this was at about 11:30 or 12:00,  go to the Courthouse where the press conference would be held at 3 pm and stage there. No questions asked.

So why did they let everyone stay there for so long and then the immediately take action to clear the scene.

From what I can see this was the plan all along, something that had been in the works since the information was given to the NHSP and the FBI on Dec 7th 2018.

According to the statement by Strelzin during the press conference it was indicated that they were sure that back in Dec. 2018 there was no credible evidence in the cellar, there was no evidence connected to this case and certainly no human remains and there was NO probable cause to do the search.

So……. after reviewing the evidence submitted by the team which included the 2 cadaver dog videos and handler reports as well as the complete and precise GPR Scan report done by a certified Forensic Anthropologist Strelzin was sure without a doubt that the scene would reveal nothing in relation to the Maura Murray case.

Time for a bit of background on the dogs acquired by the Murray team and used on Nov 25th 2018 and Dec. 1st 2018

The first dog used on Nov. 25th 2018 was the same one used in the Oxygen doc, The Disappearance of Maura Murray, a worldwide televised program. Deb Ash and her dog Eisen were featured in episode 5 of the documentary with Maggie Freleng and former Federal Marshall Art Roderick.

After handler Deb Ash and her cadaver dog Eisen had recovered the human remains hidden by Art and Maggie in the woods 1/4 mile away Art Roderick states…..

“Wow”…..”And in just a matter of 5 or 6 minutes”

Deb Ash is President and Training Officer @ Canine Alert Search Teams.  The company trains Police and Fire dogs for search and rescue of cadaver remains.

^ ^ ^ ^ Start the above video at about 20 minutes to get to the Cadaver dog part. ^ ^ ^ ^

The second dog that was brought in on Dec 1st 2018 was certified, accredited and highly qualified in the search for human remains.

Black magic

Deb Ash and the 2cd handler (wishes to remain anonymous at this point) are also both members of International Police Working Dogs Assoc. and Search Dogs Northeast.


The NHSP and NH Fish and Game have the following credentials as far as search and rescue and cadaver recovery.

“The criminal justice system requires all Law Enforcement canines to be highly trained and certified in their respective fields of expertise. Law Enforcement canines must also be highly trained and certified to be able to hold weight in a criminal trial. Conservation Officers and their canines are certified through the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA). Their certifications include tracking, evidence detection, agility and obedience and fish & wildlife detection. Training is very intensive and conducted on regular basis to maintain an extremely high level of proficiency and reliability.”

The K-9 Unit has been part of the State Police since 1963. The teams, comprised of a specially trained trooper and dog, are geographically assigned to all troops within the state. The patrol dog teams are also cross-trained for drug detection, cadaver detection, and explosives detection. All teams are trained and certified to New England State Police Administrators Compact (NESPAC) standards, as well as the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA) standards.

So in theory there should be NO question about the credentials of the Cadaver dogs and handlers on both sides here, Law Enforcement vs. Regular Citizens.

The dogs and handlers acquired by the team are no doubt qualified but the NHSP discredited them after watching the video’s supplied to them on Dec 7th 2018.

“If the dog has the proper training in picking up the full range of scents of human decomposition, his accuracy rate is about 95 percent, said Sharon Ward, a cadaver dog trainer in Portland, Ore.

“So if a dog says it’s there, there’s a darn good chance it is,” she said tonight. “They’re pretty darn accurate.”

“How old can the skeletal remains be? Hundreds of years, said Cat Warren, a cadaver dog expert from North Carolina who published a book, “What the Dog Knows: The Science and Wonder of Working Dogs.”

But she and Ward both warned that the dogs are like people. They do make mistakes sometimes.

“The dogs are not magic,” Warren said. “It depends on their training.”

The certified and accredited Forensic Anthropologist and GPR scan technician was also discredited by the NHSP after they viewed the scan and read the analysis. I should add this is a world renowned company and admired Scientist of Anthropology.

NH AG Jeffrey Strelzin stated at the April 3rd press conference that ‘There was indeed NO anomaly, it was just a disturbance in the soil’……He also stated that…’The scan analysis never said there was an anomaly, just a disturbance’. That is untrue…..the documents we have prove different. Did You actually read the report Jeff Strelzin, one would think not..!

This is the analysis from the Forensic Anthropologist acquired by the team. This is from an expert in his field and a World renowned comapny in the Ground penetrating radar field.

The author surveyed accessible basement areas and covered 40m2 (454ft2) with 83 GPR profiles. This
included (56) 900MHz profiles and (27) 350MHz profiles. GPR Profile locations (Figure 1) maximized the
coverage of the concrete slab. The GPR data revealed a relatively complex but seemingly stratified
subsurface environment. The general stratigraphic profile is interpreted as a basement material of glacial
till and/or bedrock, capped by at least two distinct soil strata which are in turn overlain by likely fill material/
surface preparation for the concrete slab (Figures 2 and 3). This stratigraphic profile is consistent across the
basement, with some variability in the depth and thickness of the till/bedrock and soil strata, as well as the
likely fill/surface preparation material.
Anomalous targets and anomalous stratigraphic indicators were not common. This could be due to the
complex nature of the sub-slab materials, as anthropogenic disturbances are often masked by
inconsistencies in naturally-deposited units. More likely is that the basement was excavated to a specific
depth and saw few major subsurface impacts prior to pouring of the slab. One likely sub-slab utility line
was observed in the vicinity of the oil tank (Figure 1; Figure 3); this could be the oil feeder line mentioned
by the tradesman (see above).
A potential sub-slab disturbance area was observed near the oil tank and electrical panels (Figure 1; Plate
3). This possible disturbance appeared near the end of GPR profiles P12, P13, P14, and at the beginning of
Profiles 008, 009, 010, and 011 (Figure 1). The reader is directed to Figures 2 and 3 for GPR profiles and
interpretations across the anomaly. The anomalous area appears beneath the slab and fill/surface preparation
material, is approximately 1.0 meter wide (3.2ft), and ranges in maximum depth between 75cm and 150cm
(2.5ft to 5ft). No GPR profiles were collected under the oil tank, so it is not clear if the anomalous area
extends in that direction. This area would be logical choice for future excavation efforts or minimal-impact
coring investigation.


Analysis and interpretation of the Wild Ammonoosuc Road GPR dataset revealed one subsurface area with
signs of a potential vertical disturbance. This anomalous area is situated near the oil tank and electrical
panels (Figure 1), and is roughly 1.0 meter wide (3.2ft) and between 75 and 150cm deep (2.5ft to 5ft). This
area would be a logical focal point for future excavations.
As ground-penetrating radar is a remote sensing technology, the interpretations herein are based on the
authors’ experience. It is critical that the potential disturbance is ‘ground-truthed’/ visually verified through
excavation, coring, or other sampling methods. This would improve the interpretation of GPR profiles,
verify or refute the presence of the disturbance, and possibly determine the source of the Anomaly.”

Screenshot (246)

So……Jeff Strelzin says that they brought in 2 cadaver dogs to the location on Feb 20th 2019 and did not get any hits for human remains.

The Murray team brought in 2 cadaver dogs on 2 separate occasions a week apart, Nov 25th 2018 and Dec 1st 2018 and got 2 positive hits for human remains.

So……Is there a 5% chance that the dogs acquired by the team were wrong….Sure there is..!

But…..Is there also a 5% chance that the dogs used by the NHSP on Feb 20th 2019 were wrong….Sure there is….!

We of course do not know the actual results of the NHSP dog searches on Feb 20th 2019, we are going by what has been stated by LE.

Did the NHSP video the 2 cadaver dog searches on Feb 20th 2019 at the 92 Wild Ammonoosuc rd property..?

We also do not know to what extent the cellar and area of the anomaly was excavated. How close to the field stone foundation wall was looked at scientifically and forensically.?

The NHSP was supplied with the teams cadaver dog searches as well as the GPR scan analysis on Dec 7th 2018. Within a week of receiving this information and evidence the NHSP started a behind the scenes smear campaign to discredit the cadaver dogs, their handlers and the GPR co. as well as Forensic Anthropologist that performed the GPR scan.

It was very obvious at this point that the NHSP wanted nothing to do with the evidence and was doing everything in their power to stop the dominoes from falling into the inevitable events that would take place on April 3rd 2019.

The NHSP went as far as calling in both of the teams dog handlers for interviews and were told to bring all their credentials. Both handlers agreed and had no issue sharing their credentials and track records.

Consider the fact that Jeff Strelzin stated in his April 3rd press conference that after reviewing the dog videos and the GPR analysis that there was NO probable evidence to justify a search at this location. So this was a decision more than likely made very early after receiving the items from the team on Dec 7th 2018.

WHY if the NHSP said there was ‘nothing to see here’ very soon after reviewing and discrediting the teams evidence did it take them until Feb 20th 2019, approximately 2 months, maybe more to make a decision to go to the location with their own cadaver dogs. Upon performing this search they found nothing and had no positive hits according to AG Jeff Strelzin.

Feb 20th 2019 NHSP go to the home of Cecil Smith on Bunga rd for an unknown reason.

Feb 20th 2019 at approximately 8pm Cecil Smith committed suicide.

The NHSP have said they discredited all of the teams resources and acquired evidence.

BUT… the NHSP went to the location with 2 cadaver dogs on Feb 20th 2019. No Positive hits…!

Cecil Smith commits suicide the same day that NHSP are at the location with 2 cadaver dogs and just a few short hours after NHSP were at his home on Bunga rd.

Tuesday March 5th the NHSP and the FBI are on scene at 92 Wild Ammonoosuc rd.

Big Question is……..WHY if the NHSP had already supposedly discredited the dogs, their handlers and the GPR scan did they choose to go to the location on Feb 20th 2019 with their own dogs and upon having negative results did they in-turn come back to the same location on March 5th 2019, almost 2 weeks later this time with the FBI in hand..?

I have a hard time believing as I’m sure many others do as well that they just did not go through all this and especially excavate the cellar just to rule it out. They said they already had according to Strelzin. NHSP has stated previously because of the funds available it was not going to happen.

So…..REALLY what was the actual catalyst for the FBI to be brought in IF indeed there was ‘Nothing to see here’..?

What was up with the April 3rd media blitz at 92 Wild Ammonoosuc rd location and WHO spilled the beans to the media that this was happening..?

Was the April 3rd search of the cellar a play by NHSP to try and finally just stop the narrative once and for all, did they play a card from their hand as to try and diffuse a very sensitive subject and squelch the online community chatter and speculation..?

IF indeed the NHSP knew there was nothing there but proceeded with the excavation of the area in the cellar and did this in front of the world would it finally appease Fred Murray and his family and stop the Merry-Go-Round of online speculation..?

OR……Was the April 3rd search and media frenzy a ‘killing 2 birds with one stone’ effect. Was it a well planned and orchestrated attempt to give Fred Murray what he wanted but at the same time slap him and his family across the face once again in front of the world and say…..’We told You So’

From My observations at the scene and at the Courthouse it would seem that it was a pretty well laid out plan to steer the narrative…….. but a couple of the players did not stick to the plan once at the courthouse. 

Strelzin told the Murray family in private that the dogs their team used…”Hit on a dead rat”

“Boston Magazine January 28, 2014

The first police officer arrived at 7:46 p.m. “It was obvious that she had been drinking,” says Jeff Strelzin “Fred has been a difficult person to deal with from the beginning,” Strelzin says. In Maura Murray’s case, Strelzin will not say how often law enforcement monitors online forums, but concedes that the police are “aware of things that are said.” He adds that “nothing fruitful” has ever come from the DIY detectives.”

Pushing the buttons of the NH AG Jeff Strelzin actually supplied a bit more fuel to the fire and got him to show his true colors. I have to say Jeffrey Strelzin did not act professional after the press conference. That’s not a good look or representation for the state of NH. jmho

This post is not meant to be an argument about the location and whether or not the search was proper, that cannot be determined unless we are able to view the documentation and see the location in person. We have to trust it was done properly.

This post is not to argue that there may still be a body at the location, but personally I don’t think it can be ruled out 100% without further info to go on. I am stuck on the 95% right as far as cadaver dogs go…..and the 5% just does not give me a positive hit. I feel as though if there is definitely nothing there now…..there could have been previously. As to how long ago, who knows.

What I do know is that the investigation into Maura’s disappearance and murder will not stop. We will move forward and with more vim and vigor and support every day.

Thirteen Minutes – A Matter of Life & Death..?


April 3rd 2019 started out as a day of hope that this location would reveal the location of Maura’s remains but unfortunately that was not the case. There was no end and closure to this 15 year nightmare.

This location was of huge interest back in 2004 and continued to be for the past 15 years. In late September 2018 I received information from a hairdresser at a local salon about a house close to the scene and that a plumber had been working in the cellar during the summer of 2004.

When working in the cellar which had a dirt floor and while burying a fuel oil supply line to the furnace he came across a small bone that he thought to be human. The plumber completed the job and showed the owner the piece of bone and told them where he found it and he left after that. Not sure what happened to the bone fragment.

Some time later,  not sure as to the actual timing on this the plumber returned to the home because he realized he had left an expensive tool there during his job. Upon returning he went to the cellar to retrieve the tool and noticed a newly poured concrete floor.

The story created immediate interest in that location and it became the focal point of the team investigation. The owners graciously gave us access to the home.

On Nov 25th 2018 a highly trained cadaver dog and handler entered the premises and there was a positive hit on the easterly side of the cellar and up the wall by the electrical panel and the oil tank.

On Dec 1st 2018 another highly trained dog and handler entered the building, the same results were obtained at this time.

On Dec 1st right after the cadaver dog exited the building there was a Certified Forensic Anthropologist on scene highly trained in GPR testing and analysis. He scanned the complete cellar and had no idea where the dogs had their hits. His analysis was that there was an anomaly in the exact location the dogs had hit on. His analysis did not reveal any other such anomalies in the whole basement.

Because of the results of the dogs and the GPR the info was given to the NHSP and the FBI on Dec 7th 2018.

NHSP goes to home on Feb 20th with cadaver dogs and as Jeffrey Strelzin stated at the April 3rd press conference…..Their dogs did not get any hits in that cellar.

On Feb 20th the NHSP went to Cecil Smith’s house for an unknown reason. At 8 pm Cecil Smith committed suicide for an unknown reason.

On March 5th the NHSP and the FBI went to the scene but we are not sure what they did on this visit to the location.

On April 2cd and 3rd the NHSP and the FBI were at the 92 Wild Ammonoosuc rd location. We received notification of the Wed April 3rd search on Tuesday evening, April 2cd. It is unclear what was done at the location on the 2cd.

The Murray team had a Certified Forensic Anthropologist on scene but they would not allow this person in the home to watch the process.

There were several Media outlets on scene including Fox Boston, Bob Ward, WMUR, NECN, News 7, Bernie Marvin from the Bridge weekly and a few more. There was also a News 4 chopper in the air.


About noon the NHSP told everyone they had to leave the area and go stage at the Grafton County courthouse complex where Jeff Strelzin would be holding a press conference at 3 pm.

This is the press conference at 3 pm after they had spoken to the Murray family in private. Jeff Strelzin was condescending and had a smirk on his face the whole time.

During the press conference Strelzin discredited the teams cadaver dogs and handlers as well as the validity of the GPR scan.

During the private meeting with the Murray family Strelzin told them that “the dogs they used hit on a ‘DEAD RAT’….”……Absolutely unbelievable.

Fred Murray speaking to the media after Strelzin…..Heartbreaking

Fred at Mics

Fred Murray speaking to the media after Strelzin spread his Frosting on the Cake of the lies and Bullshit that has surrounded this case from day one, Feb 9th 2004…!

So…….After the press conference everyone was standing around outside the courthouse. I was speaking with Col Wagner of the NHSP trying to verify a couple things. Jeff Strelzin was standing about 6 ft away from us and listening in on the questions and of course Col. Wagner’s answers.

Strelzin then said something and inserted himself into the conversation but directed it towards me. I was asking him about the inaccuracies and inconsistencies of the case and all the problems and issues that surround it.

Strelzin look

Strelzin then stated the biggest issue and problem about this case was John Smith

He stated this several times and that was when I just pointed at him and gave him a glaring stare. I was told later that there were like 6 cops standing behind me waiting to pounce on me at any second.  

This was when GC Sheriff Steigler told me I had to leave the area and go to my vehicle. The whole time I walked backwards and yelling at Strelzin in front of all these reporters and cops.

Book cover

As I was being forced to leave the area and walking backwards just focusing on Strelzin I just kept saying…….

“what about the 13 minute delay in calling out FD & EMS, What about the Saturn not hitting a tree, what about not following protocol by calling out FD & EMS, Do you realize that if they had called out FD & EMS as is protocol Maura Murray could still be alive, What about the scene being staged, Why did Jeff Williams want to speak to the head of dispatch at 7am the next morning, Why did Jeff Williams request the FD log on Tues Feb 10th”………What, When, Where, Why and Who

I don’t even remember all the questions but there was a lot.

Once I was back at my vehicle with Sheriff Steigler I was much calmer because of the distance between Strelzin and myself.

We discussed the GCSD dispatch logs and I will be making an appt. to see him and discuss the 3 different versions the Murray family received back in 2004. That will be sometime next week, the week of the 8th. 


This is not just going to go away……Not Ever…….

MAURA MURRAY WENT MISSING UNDER YOUR WATCH – Who is to Guard the Guards Themselves.?

Just thinking out loud here ……. Some things for You to Ponder

What do Attorney General Jeffrey Strelzin, Rick Forcier and 1 other classmate Thomas U. and his brother Scott U. from Goffstown High School class of 1980, former Haverhill Chief Jeff Williams, (Chief) Sgt. Cecil Smith, NHSP Trooper John Monaghan and a couple other unnamed local law enforcement officers have in common.?

Important note…..Cecil Smith committed suicide last night (2/20/19) at approximately 8pm. RIP….. This is all that is known at this time.

All but 1 (one) of the above was in the Haverhill / Woodsville on Feb. 9th 2004, at least to the best of our knowledge one of them was absent. We have not been able to confirm the whereabouts of that one person as of yet.

What do these people have in common with Maura Murray.?

All but one of them was in Haverhill / Woodsville area to the best of our knowledge.

Maura Murray was last seen in Haverhill / Woodsville NH on Feb 9th. 2004 at the Weathered barn Corner on Rte 112.

At least 3 of the people named above were at the scene of the Saturn accident or very close to the scene. BUT let’s NOT forget about the 2 bystanders, still unidentified to this day.

What do these people have in common with the property now under heavy scrutiny after 2 positive Cadaver dog hits as well as a conclusive GPR scan indicating human remains was found.?

What do all these people and this property very close to the accident scene have to do with 1 local Fireman on scene that night.

Why did this Fireman adamantly state that he was not on duty that night.?

When I contacted this fireman in 2004 and 2005 by phone for an interview he insisted he was not on duty. I stated that I had in my hand and was looking at his signature on the Woodsville FD log for the night of Feb. 9th 2004. He said that was not possible.

Again it was stated to him that his signature was on the log and he hung up on me.

The second call to him for an interview was very short. I identified myself and just wanted to ask him why his name was on the log if he was not there and he did not sign it. His response was…….”I was not working that night, end of story”….and then he hung up.

What happened on Feb. 9th. 2004 at around 7 pm close to the Weathered Barn Corner and the Westman’s house.?

Who was at the scene that night and in what capacity.?

How many witnesses are there to the events of Feb. 9th 2004 at the WBC.?

I personally feel we are closer to the answers than ever and everything is tying together the longer and deeper we dig.

The connections are surprising and what is behind it all certainly explains The Silence in a Small Town.

But one fact that can be stated without pause is………That…….

Maura Murray went missing on Feb. 9th 2004……AND IS STILL MISSING.

The rest of the people above are all well and accounted for……But Not Maura..!


Fred Murray and his family and the thousands of supporters will not stop until they have answers.

Throwing People Under the Bus ~ The Real Story

Blogpost under Construction

A Matter of National Security…?

is it possible that The Disappearance of Maura Murray has something to do with a matter of National Security..?

and I ask this question under the possible assumption and speculation that Maura could be alive or deceased.

Erinn Deborah Larkin ~ Dark Shadows ~ Strange Bedfellows

Mechanically Speaking ~ Erinn Deborah Larkin…..Say What..!

This is part of the transcript from episode 33 of the missing Maura Murray podcast with Tim and Lance and they are interviewing Erinn Deborah Larkin.

As far as the Saturn goes and the statements that are made by Erinn, it proves that she does not know a thing about cars or motors and the way they function. During this interview she states that her father was a big GM guy and that both of her brothers are mechanics. Well if she learned this information from her brothers then it is also noted that neither one of them have a clue about how an engine and its cooling system works. I wouldn’t let them look at a Matchbox car…..much less my own vehicle.

First of all the can of alumaseal was in the trunk as part of a emergency kit that Fred had made up for her. There are several items included in that kit including an old Hospital towel which Fred has stated was found in the tailpipe.

And I will also note that Fred Murray told me that he was instructed by the police to take the towel out of the tailpipe on Friday February 13th 2004 when he viewed the vehicle at lavoie’s personal garage.

Fred retrieved a hidden key on the Saturn and started the vehicle and drove it outside into the lot. The car started right up and was actually drivable

Okay so… If the Saturn was having an issue with a leaky heater core which is behind the dashboard on the firewall of the vehicle this would mean that small amount of fluid would probably leak out but more than likely it is going to be mostly Steam and you would never be able to drive the vehicle at all.

As far as the Saturn possibly having a blown head gasket and as stated by Erinn Deborah Larkin that that would cause the vehicle to be running on 3 cylinders is incorrect information.

If indeed the vehicle had a blown head gasket then fluids and steam would leak from that area and cause the coolant levels to drop and the vehicle to overheat. If you drive the vehicle long enough and the engine is not cooled it will Toast the motor.

But having a blown head gasket does not cause a vehicle to run on 3 cylinders. More than likely if the vehicle was running on just three cylinders it was caused by an electrical issue in the distributor / coil or the wires going to the spark plugs or fuel injection system.

The smoke from the tailpipe more than likely was caused by an issue with the engine oil mixing with the exhaust of the fuel and exiting through the tailpipe of the vehicle. This smoke would be darker and more noticeable.

Also we should note that if … and I am saying if there was a possible issue with the coolant system and it was a blown head gasket, it would be an internal breach that would allow Antifreeze to mix with the fuels exhaust and create a light colored steam vapor. Most likely not even noticeable.

If you think that you have a blown head gasket and it is exiting out the tailpipe of the exhaust system all you have to do is take a towel and hold it in the palm of your hand and put it over the end of the exhaust and you will be able to feel the pressure and when you take the towel off you might feel dampness and if you smell it you will smell antifreeze if there is indeed a leak.

If there is a problem with oil and it is entering the exhaust system and coming out the tailpipe it will be a darker smoke and you can do the same thing with a towel and when you take a white towel off after doing so it will be stained and almost black because of the oil being emitted through the exhaust system.

and when it comes to the soda bottle containing antifreeze and alumaseal… I’m not even going to address that. The statement is absolutely ridiculous and ludicrous.


Okay… I will say this about the soda bottle. The statement about putting the soda bottle under the hood to use as an overflow or exhaust for the fluids does not make any sense. An overflow tank is a reservoir to hold excess fluid if the car does have an issue. So you wouldn’t put a soda bottle or any type of bottle under the hood and add coolants to it because then it no longer becomes an overflow tank.

Actually General Motors did start using Dex-Cool as a coolant in their automobiles. Dex-cool is orange.

Dex-Cool is ORANGE…….NOT RED. ..!

The Smoking Man & The Blonde Girl Walking

In June of 2019 while out doing interviews along with Jeffrey Combs we spoke with members of the Woodsville fire department as well as Mike lavoie and Dick McKean the tow truck drivers on the evening of February 9th 2004.

Upon speaking with these people a few interesting tidbits were gained and added to the stack of craziness that surrounds this case. It was all compiled but really didn’t add anything to the big picture at the time. Just a few more pieces.

But now…..

Recently I have been speaking with First Responders * from the evening of February 9th 2004 as well as a few locals who passed by the scene within the next 2 to 3 days.

*Art Roderick & Maggie Freleng did not interview even 1 member of the FD..! They only spoke to Dick Guy, not the other EMT as well. (Interesting to say the least)

Did Oxygen and the Texas crew documentary team not receive permission from the New Hampshire attorney general Jeff strelzin to interview the fire department..?

Things that are coming to light at this point are opening up new avenues of investigation and thought.

I think the biggest question in this case is whether or not Maura Murray was actually driving the Saturn on February 9th 2004.

And the other huge question is where specifically the Saturn was located in the area of the Weathered Barn. There has been several different accounts of this. Although there are several different accounts of the location of the vehicle I don’t think it could be perfectly nailed down as to what the actual disposition of the Saturn was on February 9th 2004 unless we are able to see the pictures that were taken by Cecil Smith on that evening. That is if indeed he did take pictures that night or…

Is there a chance that pictures were not taken at the scene and the car was just photographed the next day at Lavoie’s garage.

Just more thinking outside the box.

This new information may not help solve the case but it certainly is going to put another person’s first hand perspective of the events of February 9th 2004 out into the public.

Why Was Maura Murray Really in NH……

in October of 2006 the NHLI was using the Mountain Lakes Lodge as a command post. This was set up for the whole weekend and this was being used as our centralized location for everyone to meet up. There were many people involved in the events of that weekend, this included members of the team as well as two different cadaver dog teams, searchers, family members and locals.

At this point I cannot remember if it was a Saturday or a Sunday but there were several of us standing around a buffet table and Tim and Kathleen were sitting around talking to people. There were probably about five or six of us in the conversation. And I am not sure exactly what we were talking about other than trying to figure out what had happened. During the conversation Kathleen made a statement… “We are part of the reason she was up here”

Of course we were all taken aback by the comment that had just been blurted out by Kathleen. Immediately as we were trying to comprehend what we had just heard, Tim abruptly grabbed Kathleen by the arm and said let’s go we are going out to the truck.

This was definitely a strange comment by Kathleen and even a weirder response by Tim Carpenter.

The upstairs of the large is a meeting Hall with a small kitchen area. The downstairs contains a craft area room which is where the radio communications and actual Command Center was set up. The only other thing downstairs was the bathrooms. The men’s room was comprised of four urinals and three stalls.

At one point in time I was upstairs speaking to people that were attending the meeting and I had to use the bathroom. I walked down the stairs and Tim Carpenter was standing outside of the entry door into the command post which was partially open. He did not make eye contact with me. It seemed as though he was waiting to use the bathroom at first glance. I entered the men’s room and found out that there was no one in there. When I came back out Tim was back upstairs. My gut feeling tells me that he was listening into what was going on in the command post. Why he was doing that is beyond me. At least at that point it really didn’t stick out to me as something nefarious. He was just concerned and wondering what was going on.

But……IF we combine the 2 events it certainly seems much more suspicious.

Also……the “We” part of her statement can be taken a couple different ways. Her & Tim, The Murray Family or something else. ..!

And the word “part” in the statement would indicate more people were involved or in the know.

Was Maura Murray Really Ever at the WBC on Feb 9th 2004..?

As the years go by and little tidbits of information and Bombshells that are released by certain people connected to this case have made me believe that Maura Murray was never at the Weathered Barn corner on February 9th 2004 .

Who was really driving the Saturn on Feb 9th 2004..?

This case never ceases to amaze me. ……

Thinking Outside the Black Box Report

This is a commissioned accident reconstruction report on the Saturn completed by Daniel Parkka. The report has been circulating in the background for more than a year now. This release of this document is not in any way detrimental to the case. This report has been shared with the Murray family as well as Erinn Deborah Larkin and at this point several others in the MM community, up to at least 28 people at this point.

The reason for the release of this document is to be transparent with the community and give them a chance to use this resource to further the investigation into the disappearance of Maura Murray. The more analytical minds, the better.

The cover page has been removed from the Google Doc I created, this is a private email between O’connell and Parkka.

Also pg. 18 was not in the file sent to me. Brett from Prosecutors Pod received a complete copy of the doc from Erinn Larkin (Confirmed) and I kindly asked Brett if he would share pg. 18 with me so the report would be complete. The decision was made to share pg. 18 with me. I did not insert pg. 18 into my Google Doc because I wanted to keep it separated and true to the way I received the documents.

Now…….Let’s discuss the Black Box report and draw our own conclusions as to it’s content. Think Outside the Box..!

Here is the link to the Document……

Below is page 18 that I received from Brett today 3/14/21

And it should be noted that pg. 18 this ‘mysterious part” page was being circulated online long ago, specifically on Facebook. So certain aspects of this report have indeed been around and circulating for better than a year now.

Disclaimer; None of the documents in this report are marked Private and Confidential and there is nothing else in these documents stating that to be the case. When I received these documents I was not asked to keep them private and in no way am I obligated to do so.
