A new look at one of the North Country's Coldest Cases
Pretty interesting, this guest seems convinced Maura's case and Brianna Maitland's are absolutely connected. Just wondering if you had heard this man's name in regards to the investigation before James?
I have to say, James, that you, Lance and Tim, et al, are the only investigators who are keeping this case alive. And what pisses me off are the know-it-alls who sit on their thumbs mocking you guys when they add totally nothing to the equation...just criticism. It's easy to do in front of a computer screen. We need you in the world because this world is a dull, grimy place and you bring much needed light.
IMO- I don't think Maura and Brianna cases are related to one another and I also don't believe that a serial killer is involved. IMO- I think something happened to Briana by someone she knew. She had just got into a fight with another girl, a few weeks prior to her disappearance. Briana had filed charges against this girl. I think digging more into the people, Briana had been hanging around could lead to answers of what happened to her. The scene with Briana had signs of a struggle and there was DNA found. First responders from Mauras car accident said the scene looked staged and something wasn't right about it. There was no sign of struggle, no DNA, no one knew she had left UMASS, she had a lot of issues going on with her life at the time, and she wrecked her dad's car early Sunday morning.(2 car wrecks within 48 hours of one another) There has been zero evidence to point to foul play. IMO- the only thing Maura and Brianna have in common is that they we're young pretty females, and there cars were involved in some type of accident. I believe Briana was harmed by someone she knew in Vermont. I believe Maura either ran away to start a new life or something happened to her in Massachusetts by someone she knew and this person staged the scene.
The scene couldn't have been staged without Maura being present. She was spotted by witnesses.
It could of been someone, who resembled Maura. Butch Atwood at first said the picture of Maura didn't look like the girl he saw. Later on he identified the driver of the Saturn as Maura.
I still don't believe Maura, a single, young female with a car that's not working to full capacity, would take a chance and drive that secluded road alone. That is one creepy stretch of tar. And she was travelling further into the barren darkness. Something is not right with this picture. Why would she use her car when she had asked to borrow her father's car a few days earlier just for a local ride? It doesn't make sense to me. Also, didn't her dad say she was unfamiliar with that route?
Have you seriously decided to not drive down a road because it was dark and secluded?Her father was in town when she borrowed his car, but not when she left in her last trip. A lot of people may not be comfortable asking asking to borrow a friends car, especially for more than a couple hours.
I would still like to know who the police suspect in this case. Didn't they say they are 75% sure they know who was involved? It's 12 years later. I say, try the person and let the chips fall where they may...that's if they are so sure, because, meanwhile, that person is walking free.
