 4: E4 Addendum: Words Matter | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 789

This is a short addendum to the fourth episode and it addresses two points. The first pertains to the response I received from the NH State Police regarding James Renner’s claim that “the police think she was pregnant” on Episode 2 of "The Disappearance of Maura Murrray" series on Oxygen. The second addresses another question I reached out to law enforcement about, which is whether Renner’s claim that Maura was about to be cited for Reckless Operation before she disappeared is true. The short answer to both questions is “No.” These distinctions are very important. Over the years, the sum total of all these instances of little fibs, warped truths, and exaggerated claims (often based on rumors and/or questionable sources) has painted a picture that in no way resembles the truth. I felt that there was no harm in providing some clarification.

 4: Out with the Old [Rumors]: Reviewing New Information from E2 of Oxygen's “The Disappearance of Maura Murray” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3519

 3: Frederick J. Murray v. Special Investigation Unit of the Division of State Police et al. | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3354

This episode discusses the civil suit that Fred Murray filed against the “state” of NH after the police refused to release any of the documents they had in their possession pertaining to Maura’s disappearance. Erinn and Ethan are joined by an attorney and a public defender in Brooklyn, NY, who began her career as a public defender in New Hampshire. I felt that she was the perfect person to help provide context and guide us through some of the legalese in the transcripts and the affidavits provided by Nancy Smith, Assistant Attorney General Jeff Strelzin, and Detective Todd Landry. You can find the documents referenced in this video at the107degree.com.
