STATED TO THE MURRAY’S BY OFFICER SMITH
“They said Smith told them he thought the driver of the Saturn was Murray’s father, to whom the car was registered. They want to know why he asked neighbors the night of the crash, “Where was the girl?”
BUT MAURA NEVER ASKED BUTCH ATWOOD TO CALL A WRECKER & HE WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD CONTACT WITH HER AT THE SCENE…….’THAT WE KNOW OF’
“2/20/04 Seacoast Online – After the accident, witnesses said she asked them to call a wrecker….Scarinza said. “We are reasonably confident that she did not enter the woods near the accident scene. That area was searched several times.”
The accident scene was in sight of several homes, although the area becomes remote after that. Scarinza said she did not seek help from any of the homeowners, so it may be that she accepted a ride somewhere, but, he said, “there is no indication that anyone picked her up.” There is no evidence of foul play either, he said.”
“There was no one looking for her along the roadway during the daylight hours for several days,” Foley said. “I never saw anyone come down this way, not ever.”
“I want to know what happened in the first 36 hours,” Fred Murray said. “I want to know what the state police officer at the scene did.”
AND THIS IS WHAT LE DID ON TUESDAY……..NOT TOO FUCKING MUCH..!
“The following day, February 10, a BOLO (Be On the LookOut) for Maura Murray was issued at 12:36 pm to Grafton County, Littleton, Haverhill, and Lisbon. A voice mail was left on Maura’s father’s home answering machine at 3:20 pm stating that the car was found abandoned. He was working out of state and did not receive this call until later in the day. At 5:00 pm, Maura’s older sister contacted her father to tell him that Maura’s car had been found abandoned. He contacted the Haverhill Police Department and was told that if Maura was not reported safe by the following morning, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department would start a search. Maura’s family members contacted the University of Massachusetts Police Department at 6:46 pm, and requested that her dormitory room be checked.”
“Whatever happened happened in a very short time,” said John Healy, who heads a team of private investigators volunteering on the case. “It was the wrong person, the wrong time. It’s a weird set of circumstances where everything comes together.”
Excerpts from the above article:
“At 3:40 p.m. Monday, she withdrew $280 from an area ATM, then stopped at a liquor store. Surveillance cameras at the bank machine and in the store show that she was alone.”
Here is the 7pm timeline I have been talking about.
“Maura was next seen at 7 p.m. in the White Mountains hamlet of Haverhill, N.H., an area where she had hiked and camped with her father. Schoolbus driver Butch Atwood came across her car in an embankment, he said, and stopped to ask if she needed help.”
“Third is that in the brief window of time, she was picked up by someone who abducted or killed her. But authorities believe the odds of a violent criminal coincidentally coming across her on the rural road are as remote as the location itself.”
