UMass police are currently caught up in a unbelievable scandal, according to the Boston Globe. Seems the university cops were in the habit of cutting deals with students they caught doing illegal things, if they would narc on their peers. It all came out when one of their confidential informants (whom they could have helped by notifying therapists and parents) overdosed and died.
At the time Maura disappeared, she had cut a deal with a local judge after UMass police caught her in a credit card fraud sting.
I wonder. Was she providing them with the names of other students involved in identity theft?
