Please listen to Fred Murray's interview with Christine James from WATD. This is WHY the FBI needs to TAKE OVER this case and get the answers.
We the people are asking for the FBI to take over the investigation in the Maura Murray Missing case that is surrounded by inaccuracies, inconsistencies, and what seems to be a lack of a proper investigation.
On February 9th 2004 Maura Murray's black 1996 Saturn was found disabled beside the road and the driver had vanished in the span of about 2 minutes. This occurred on Rte 112 in Haverhill NH around 7 pm at an area close to the Weathered Barn corner and was called into 9-1-1 at 7:27 by a witness that lives on the corner and heard an acceleration and a thud. These witnesses as well as Haverhill NH police determined the car spun out and hit a tree at the scene. Accident re-constructionist have since determined the Saturn did not hit any trees and that the damage was more than likely caused by a solid stationary object or a solid object at the same height as the damage on the Saturn and was consistent with that occurring.
There was also a rag found stuffed into the tailpipe of the Saturn and was noticed by EMT personnel and the info was told to LE. The Officer then went to the 9-1-1 callers home and stated "Did you see the female, there was a rag stuffed in the tailpipe." WHY would he give out this info..? LE also pushed the suicide scenario from day one. WHY..?
Witness statements of those passing by the scene have stated seeing an SUV cruiser with the #001 on it but this unit was not supposed to be on duty or involved in this incident at all. The first officer officially on scene and signed off was #002 in a Sedan operated by Officer Cecil Smith. The BOL that evening was only put out to the incoming fire department unit which would have been coming from the West. There was no BOL put out to any other towns in the area especially to the East towards the Easton Franconia and Lincoln areas. This is a concern because the route of travel for the Saturn was in the easterly direction towards these towns. On Tuesday February 10th 2004 a BOL was put out around noon and again this did not include any jurisdictions to the east. There are only a couple towns notified and these were all to the West.
The search that evening consisted of talking to the 2 nearby 9-1-1 callers to get their info, other that that no other neighbors were talked to until 3 days later. Also the area to the EAST of the scene was also not looked at until 72 hours later. The Saturn was traveling EAST when the car spun out and became disabled.
We the people feel that Law Enforcement looked at this case in the wrong light and the so-called real investigation did not start til about one week later. We truly feel this investigation was handled impropery and since that evening things have only gotten much worse.
There is much more to this case than meets the eye and the FBI is needed to bring answers to the case, closure to the Murray Family and Justice for all.
We ask that once You sign this petition that You also write a sincere letter to the FBI requesting their involvement in the Mysterious case of Maura Murray that went missing 12 years ago. Please help this family put an end to the unanswered questions and let Fred Murray and loved ones have some final Peace and closure.
