Helena Dwyer Murray, the official family spokesperson, has died.


Several sources close to the investigation into the disappearance of Maura Murray claim today that family spokesperson, Helena Dwyer Murray has passed away after a battle with cancer. First, I want to express my sympathies to Helena's family. She and I had our disagreements but it was clear to me that she really wanted to find the truth about what happened to Maura. She was a relentless force and her heart was always in the right place.

Julie Murray has been made an administrator for the official Facebook page.

**Updated** New Interview for Missing Maura Murray Podcast


Lance & Tim asked me on the show to talk a bit about the case and why this blog is locked as an archive.

UPDATE: In the episode we discuss Witness A. You can choose to believe what you wish. I believe her memory is not reliable and was unintentionally manipulated over the years. But she clearly means well.

The negativity and anger shown in the comments on social media after this episode have reminded me why it's important for me to step back from this case.



I have seen the email Witness A sent in 2005, a year after the disappearance. In it, she calls the vehicle a "car" and not an SUV or truck several times but does say it was "001." I still believe the vehicle she saw was simply Cecil Smith responding to the accident scene. Since she does mention "001" I will eat a hat made out of fruit rollups at CrimeCon. :)

The clues to finding the keys are hidden inside paintings and poems that appear in the book, The Secret: A Treasure Hunt. Do you have what it takes to find one of Byron's lost keys?
