February 9th 2017 marks the 13th year since Maura Murray disappeared without a trace. The 1996 black Saturn SL2 was found deserted, locked and apparently disabled, the Saturn had sustained minor hood area damage and was found in the roadway facing Westbound in the Eastbound lane. The mystery of this case leaves behind many unanswered questions, some of those so bizarre that it does not seem feasible to have to ask the question in the first place. The inconsistencies and inaccuracies plague this case like an epidemic, it is sickening to say the least and even more nauseating that some people cannot see through this or are in complete denial of something that cannot be ignored.
And that is WHY 13 years later Mr. Murray still comes here searching, changes the Ribbon every year and as a determined and persistent man will never cease in the quest for answers. WE the People stand behind and beside Fred Murray as a symbol of strength in this never ending nightmare and will help to keep the case moving forward and keep the light shining bright……. that being the spirit of Maura. ‘We the People’ will not let this case disappear like Maura Murray did 13 years ago.
*****MARK OUR WORDS*****
“WE THE PEOPLE WANT THE TRUTH……..
……THE WHOLE TRUTH
…….AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH”
Good afternoon and Thank You for joining us on this the 13th year since Maura Murray mysteriously vanished from this exact location.
My name is John Smith from Truth Seekers Investigations and I have been looking into this case for 13 years now.
It was at 7:27 pm on Feb. 9th 2004 when the 1st call came into 911 @ the GCSD dispatch center. The caller, Faith Westman stated there was a car in the ditch, a man in the car smoking a cigarette and unknown if there was any personal injury to the occupant.
A few minutes later school bus driver Butch Atwood came along and witnessed a female at the scene and offered to call for help but was told that AAA had already been called. Atwood then drove to his house, parked his bus and went inside to call 911 to report what he had seen knowing that there was indeed NO cell phone service in that area.
At 7:46 pm Sgt. Cecil Smith from the Haverhill PD arrived here on scene to find the Black 1996 Saturn deserted, locked and apparently disabled. The vehicle has sustained minor damage to the hood area and was located facing Westbound in the eastbound lane.
The driver, Maura Murray
was gone, she had vanished in what seems like a blink of an eye.
WHERE DID MAURA GO.?
WHICH WAY DID SHE GO.?
WHERE IS MAURA TODAY.?
For 13 years now a determined and persistent man, Fred Murray has been coming to NH to find the answers that will lead him to the whereabouts of his Daughter Maura.
Mr. Murray has searched the roadsides, scoured the streams & traversed the small hills and mountains in what must be a never ending nightmare.
Fred Murray has dug thru trash dumps, looked in wells, crawled under buildings & even came across bones in a sandpit. Those remains turned out to be animal bones, that of a cow but one can only imagine the feeling that must have been totally overwhelming and a gasp of helplessness. A feeling no-one should ever have to experience.
WE THE PEOPLE, the investigators, friends, locals and concerned citizens are here today to show support for the Murray Family as well as let the community know that we are still searching for the answers to help resolve this case and bring closure to the Murray family. We will continue to search for the TRUTH on a mission to bring forth justice for this Cold Case Mystery.
****If at this time anyone would like to say a few words we welcome you do so at this time.******
NOW Annie Searle will be doing a reading of a short poem / prayer written especially for Maura. This will be followed by a 13 balloon release marking the 13 year long & tiring journey that has brought us to this point in time. The red heart signifies strength for all of us.
****Annie finishes poem****
Witnessing the crowd here today gives hope that this mystery of what happened to Maura Murray will not be forgotten. I can feel the positive energy and know that it definitely must be Maura smiling at us all.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING PART OF TODAY. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE VFW THIS SAT. FEB. 11TH FROM 2 TIL 8 PM FOR THE GATHERING.
COME AND JOIN US FOR WHAT WILL BE AN INFORMATIVE MEETING AND IT WILL BE MUCH MUCH WARMER THAN IT IS HERE TODAY.
On February 11th 2017 The Truth Seekers Group put together an informational meeting and gathering at the VFW in Littleton NH. The local community supported us by donating their personal time, assorted services , food and so much more. The outpouring of local support shows the true spirit of the the kind and caring people that inhabit the Great State of New Hampshire. Your help was very much appreciated and we could not have done this without You.
We had a total of about 70 people here for the meeting and was very productive and the audience participation was awesome. Thank You all for attending and being interested in the Murray case as well as showing support for your own community in doing so. This is not just about Maura Murray, it is about so much more. Maura’s case has opened a ‘Can-o-Worms’ that cannot be ignored and will not be ignored, especially by the Truth Seekers Group and anyone else that can see through the smoke and gleam a vision into the Truth & Reality that exists behind the ‘Wall-of-Silence’

During Mr. Murray’s emotional words he spoke of many things including the investigation or lack thereof, questioning why the cops did not look to the East that night, Why NHSP Commander John Scarinza denied / lied about having a Trooper on scene that night and why the NHSP have questioned the credibility of Witness ‘A’ Karen MacNamara. During the time Mr Murray was behind the podium You could feel the energy in the room and see the faces of the people, it was as if they were entranced. I am sure their Hearts were fractured from the oh so powerful utterance by Fred Murray. Words that filled the room with sorrow yet gave new meaning to a group of people that had come together to support the Murray Family. The gathering not only showed support but was a multi faceted opportunity. The contacts that were made and friendships that will grow from this event can only only add to the power and intent of the mission to help find the answers to the mystery of what happened to Maura.
Some of Fred Murray’s last words was ‘A Call for Action’….A Plea from the People to help get the FBI to TAKE OVER the investigation into the disappearance of his daughter Maura.
Well…….Here is the Plea (see below). I ask that you Call or E-mail the FBI as well as the Governor of NH and any other person you can think of that has the POWER to help. Flood these people with the info, be relentless and do not let this cold case mystery be ignored or swept under the carpet any longer.
*******************A PLEA FROM THE MURRAY FAMILY********************
On Feb. 11th 2017 Fred Murray and his family made a personal plea for “We the People” to join together in a force of numbers to encourage the FBI to TAKE OVER the investigation into the disappearance of Maura Murray. Mr. Murray feels this is the ONLY HOPE He has to find the answers as to what happened on Feb. 9th 2004 @ the Weathered Barn corner on Rte 112 in Haverhill NH.
Our mission is to flood the Boston office of the FBI and Harold H. Shaw, Agent in charge with E-mails and phone calls requesting that he not only acknowledge the Change.org petition with almost 6,000 signatures now but answer a plea from the Murray Family to get the FBI to take over, one that he has been asking for from the beginning.
It is not 100% fact that it was indeed Maura Murray at the scene that evening. This along with the fact that the Saturn was found in NH, it had left Mass and gone through VT and then ended up in NH. Police have indicated this case is an active missing person case with possible criminal activity, that being said it seems that having 3 states involved would possible make it an interstate crime of some sort.
Also Please contact newly elected Governor Chris Sununu and make the same plea to him as well as Senators and Representative for the state of NH.
WE THE PEOPLE have the power to make these people listen. We the People have the power of social media, do not let them silence our words. We the People are the voice for Maura Murray and her Family.
WE THE PEOPLE ARE TURNING UP THE HEAT ON THIS COLD CASE.
PLEASE add this picture of the Murray family to any correspondence sent to ‘THE PEOPLE WITH THE POWER’.
Truth Seekers Investigations Group
The petition was submitted to the FBI when it reached 5,200 signatures. I have yet to receive a response from Harold H. Shaw, Agent in Charge even after sending this email to him 6 times. I have called 3 times and spoke to his secretary and left messages and have not even been given the courtesy of acknowledgement of receipt of said petition. All ‘We the People’ want is a response from the FBI….a simple email or phone call sating they have received it. But NO….Nothing. Do ‘We the People’ even exist and matter, do our words count for anything.?
It seems ‘We the People” are being ignored, like our existence is irrelevant in this case. I personally will not sit back and let the powers that be ignore what must not be ignored. I am hoping You feel the same way and will do the right thing by signing the petition and spreading the word far and wide.
Do not let Maura Murray become an urban legend…….Just another unknown mystery.
There was a major Documentary team at the event filming for what will become a 6 part series about the Mystery of Maura Murray’s disappearance and those behind the 13 year search for ‘Truth & Justice’. There will be much more info about this Doc later on down the road but at this point I am unable to share anything else.
Below is a bunch of pix from the blog since it was started. Just to bring back some memories for the old timers here as well as the newbies just now jumping on the Maura Murray Mystery Train.
I chose to end this blog post with the 3 pictures below. These photos keep Me moving forward every day on a mission to find the Truth. These pictures leave a feeling of sadness, despair and hopelessness but also give one the strength to forage on. Join me on that mission.
