Podcast and Podcasters: Missing Maura Murray, Lance Reenstierna and Tim Pilleri
Episode 1: Introduction
At 7:35pm, on February 9th, 2004, New Hampshire State Police are called to scene of a single car accident on Rt. 112. It was the intersection of Wild Ammonoosuc Road and Bradley Hill Road where a U-Mass Amherst student named Maura Murray vanished after she apparently lost control of her vehicle after a sharp bend. When authorities arrived not ten minutes later, Maura was gone. There has been no credible sighting of her since.
