    Thanks for that synopsis, BB73. It makes perfect sense. I've always surmised she walked away and died of exposure.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    Same here. She didn't strike me as the sort of person who would just up sticks & leave without a trace. My gut reaction - 99% exposure. 1% chance she bumped in to wrong 'un & they dispatched her.

The list goes on and on and on. And yes, I might be wrong, but I truly believe it really is as simple as this. She made some bad decisions and it cost her her life and perhaps eventually her remains will be found. Let's hope.
    Wowww. Well, I can stop wondering about Maura Murray because that's enough of a plausible explanation for me. Boston, did you mean that you actually MET her sister? Like in person??? And does she pretty much agree on the theory or does she have different ideas? It's so sad to think of her dying like that. What a lonely death.

    Yes, I've actually met Julie. I did not discuss this theory with her because it was during Crimecon and it was in a place where she was taking a break from the crowd. It would be not only slightly awkward, but pretty invasive to approach her and ask her if she thought her sister was pregnant and heading for an abortion while she was taking a breather lol. Besides, I'm pretty sure her family is more focused on where she is rather than why she was there. I get the feeling that at this point they feel she's probably not alive. I did get some one on one time with her though and she knew me from online with the group so it was nice to finally meet in person. She's very sweet and very welcoming.

    Today is actually the anniversary of her disappearance. It's been 18 years today that she's been gone. So sad that they can't just find her so they can get closure.

    That's unbelievable, it doesn't seem that long. She's been missing almost as long as her family had her in their lives. So sad, I hope they get answers soon.

    New search underway in mysterious disappearance of UMass student who vanished in 2004

    EASTON, N.H. — Authorities are conducting a ground search in New Hampshire on Wednesday in connection with a UMass-Amherst student who was reported missing in 2004.

    A search linked to the mysterious disappearance of Maura Murray is underway in an area off Route 112 in the towns of Landaff and Easton, according to New Hampshire Attorney General John M. Formella and New Hampshire State Police Colonel Nathan Noyes.

    Murray’s sister, Julie Murray, told Boston 25′s Bob Ward that her family is hoping the new search will result in a resolution of the case, but that they have learned not to get too hopeful.

    “When we get our hopes up too high, the drop-off is pretty low,” said Julie Murray.

    In a statement, Formella and Noyes said, “The search activity is not the result of new information in the case. Instead, it is part of an ongoing investigative process and will consist of a more extensive search surrounding areas that had been previously searched in a more limited fashion.”

    Murray, who was 21 at the time of her disappearance, went missing after she left college on Feb. 9, 2004, according to investigators. Around 7:30 p.m. that evening, Murray’s car was involved in what appeared to be a single-car accident on Route 112 in the New Hampshire town of Haverhill.

    Julie Murray said the area being searched is about five miles from where Maura’s car was found.

    “Whatever the reason, it is giving my family hope that in an 18-year-old case, they’re actively doing ground searches. I could not ask for anything more than that,” said Julie Murray.

    Statement from family: https://www.mauramurraymissing.org/n...Wl9KxA1Jkfl3Ds

    “My family is aware of the search efforts and are working closely with law enforcement at this time. We ask that the public not interfere with the investigation. We will share information as appropriate.” said Julie Murray, Maura’s Murray’s sister. “We are encouraged by the active efforts to find Maura and remain hopeful for a resolution.”
