From South Shore Express:
One line Fred repeated throughout the day was, "it doesn't matter." If you ask what he did for a living, or why Maura packed her things, or didn't tell anyone where she was headed, he'll just answer, "It doesn't matter." "We'll never know why she came up here," Fred said.
All that matters to Fred is "what happened on Wild Ammonoosuc Road."
From the Patriot Ledger, February 9, 2005:
The Stage Shop owner about Fred: “He’s just wrong. He’s not telling us anything about her and what he’s done is turned neighbor against neighbor up here.”
"If she was upset and wanted to get away to find peace, it would be here. It doesn't matter what brought her here to this point. Once she got here, something happened,"
“Regardless of what brought Murray to that remote area, her father wants to know where she is now.”
