In 2004 a 21-year-old UMass student, Maura Murray, sends a message to her professors saying there has been a death in her family and she will be out for the next week. But that’s a lie. No one can explain why Maura did this or her strange actions to follow but just hours after sending that email, Maura ends up crashing her car on a rural road in Haverhill, NH. She is seen and talked to by locals but in a 7-minute window, when everyone seems to look away, Maura vanishes. In this first episode, I will tell you what we all thought we knew about Maura and her disappearance early on in the investigation.
Our first episode covers the case of a local Indiana woman who went missing from a laundry mat just weeks before her wedding. See the pictures of the key players in the story below, and listen to the episode for more details.
On November 20, 2012, Sage Smith left her home at 5:30 for a date. She was seen alone at 6:30 talking to someone on the phone and then possibly sighted one more time at 7:00 at a cafe, again alone.
In one of the strangest disappearance cases we have ever covered: A woman drops off her child and a friend in a neighbors yard without a word. She is seen in a trench coat carrying something red to her car… then never seen again.
