Missing Since : February 9, 2004

Location Last Seen : Haverhill New Hampshire

Photo's concerning this Case can be found & our Photo Gallary..

Click on : Mja Inc Investigations Case Photo's -- 2

Go to : Page--2

Starting Photo :  61


Ending Photo :  72


Some time after 7:00 pm, a Woodsville, New Hampshire, resident heard a loud thump outside of her house...

Through her window she could see a car up against the snowbank along Route 112..

The resident telephoned the Grafton County Sheriff's Department at 7:27 pm to report the accident...

At about the same time another neighbor saw the car as well as someone walking around the vehicle...

A school bus driver returning home, noticed the young woman was not bleeding but cold and shivering...

He offered to telephone for help. She asked him not to call the police (one police report says "pleaded") and assured him she'd already called AAA. (AAA has no record of any such call.)

Knowing there was no cell phone reception in the area, the bus driver continued home and phoned the police...

His call was received by the Sheriff's Department at 7:43 pm...

He was unable to see Maura's car while he made the phone call but did notice several cars pass on the road before the police arrived...

At 7:46 pm, a Haverhill police officer arrived at the scene...

No one was inside or around the car...

The car's windshield was cracked on the driver's side and both airbags had deployed...

The car was locked. Inside and outside the car he discovered red stains that looked to be red wine...

The officer found a damaged box of Franzia wine on the rear seat...

Missing were Maura's debit card, credit cards, and cell phone, none of which have been located or used since her disappearance...

At 8:00 to 8:30 pm, a contractor returning home from Franconia saw a young person moving quickly on foot eastbound on Route 112 about 4 to 5 miles (6 to 8 km) east of where Maura's vehicle was discovered...T

his wasnt reported until 3 months later..

Just before 8:00 pm, EMS and a fire truck arrived to clear the scene...

By 8:49 pm, the car had been towed to a local garage...

At about 9:30 pm, the responding officer left...

A rag believed to have been part of Maura's emergency roadside kit was discovered stuffed into the Saturn's muffler pipe...

Authorities would only refer to Maura as missing the next day, almost twenty-four hours after she was last seen...

For this interview we bring you Elizabeth Yardley, associate professor of Criminology at Birmingham City University in Birmingham, U.K. We talk about Criminology and her new true crime podcast Crime Bites, which is fantastic..

Mja Inc : Notes

The subjects you were speaking about were the types of 3 day Workshops that I & another founding Partner took during our College years..

Its safe to say that we have attended over 100 of the 3 day Workshop's thru the years..

This is also how we studied the body language of a Suspect & re-creating a death or crime scene..

That education helped us to gain alot of experience..

It also helps when interviewing Serial Killers & Inmate Informates..

We still learn as we go along & I have been at this 40 years...

MM--061  [ 2-9-2004 ]


BRI_M--059  [ 3-19-2004 ]

MISSING : MAURA MURRAY   [ 2-9-2004 ]



Lets look at these Cases in a logical way..

Which so far has not worked..

All Police Protocals after the fact didn't help by labeling these Young Ladies into terms that somehow more or less was saying it was these Young Ladies choices that led them to disappear with-out a trace..

Lets look at all the many season's of the years that have passed since they disappeared..

You would have thought by now that Ground searchers--a hunter--a hiker--a fisherman or a skier would have found some type of  Human Remains...

There is no physical evidence that has been found tied to the Cases..

MISSING : MAURA MURRAY  { 2-9-2004 }

Miss Murray we must consider her disappearance was an Stranger Abduction since she was driving from UMass...

Yes its possible that Miss Murray could have been followed from UMass but we think that's highly unlikely..

On 2-9-2004 Miss Murray disappeared from the Woodsville N.H. area after she had a one car accident..

Miss Murray refused help on 3 occasions & around 10 minutes later Miss Murray just Vanished..

Then its reported the K-9's lost her scent about 100 yards down the road from the school bus driver..

So is it logical that Miss Murray would accept help on the 4th attempt just 100 yards down the road  ?

It could mean what ever happened to Miss Murray did in fact happened right there...

The Questions remain : Did Miss Murray enter the vehicle willingly or was Miss Murray forced to get into the vehicle ?

Something else it always puzzled us : On each side of the road there was snow banks about 5 feet tall..

If Miss Murray had thought she was in danger all she had to do was clear one of those snow banks head into the dark & they would have never found her..

Miss Murray : Track Star--expert mountain hiker & an ex West Point Cadet..

This says a lot about the person who abducted Miss Murray..

Mja after searching for Miss Murray for the last 12 years knows a lot of ground has been covered..


Missing : Brianna Maitland  [ 3-19-2004 ]

Miss Maitland left her work place about around 11:20pm on 3-19-2004 a Friday & disappeared...

1.3 miles the route to Miss Maitland's home her vehicle was found rammed in reverse into an empty house..

The vehicle was never considered a Crime Scene for the Trooper stated he thought it was a one car accident or a drunk driver...

So there was a delay that the VSP had Miss Maitland's vehicle...

Miss Maitland's history is she stood-up for what she believed in so could that be the possible reason why Miss Maitland disappeared ?

One avenue to follow on the Maitland Case is that Miss Maitland knew her Abductor..

Just as at one time the FBI came out & said it very possible Miss Maitland's vehicle was planted at the empty house to throw off the Investigation..

Miss Maitland was highly trained in the Martial Arts..

This is why we believe there was some type of a struggle because what we saw in Miss Maitland's vehicle & what was said found outside of the vehicle..

There is a slight hint of evidence that Miss Maitland did get out of the vehicle during the struggle...

One thing :

None of Miss Maitland's blood was ever found in the vehicle...

Case On Point :

The Killer wasn't aggressive enough with an all out blitz attack because the Perp didn't want Miss Maitland bleeding in his vehicle..

We also believe that Miss Maitland thought she was still in control at that point because they were not very aggressive trying to control her..

It could also still suggest that some type of weapon was used to control Miss Maitland & really we cant count out a Hot-Shot being used on her..

Mja was at the command center for the Klaas Kids Ground Searches for Miss Maitland on 4-3-2004..

Mja had 4 of our NY members with equipment so we went out & started doing our Investigations because we had access to Search Grids...

The Montgomery VT  area & beyond hasn't produced the search results we had hoped for when we started searching these area's...

Woodsville,NH & Montgomery VT area's are so much alike--very remote..

Mja has followed every lead on the Maitland Case that we know about & have heard about..

No solid physical evidence tied to the Case & the ground searches have produced nothing in 13 years...

Its like the Killers have a hiding place know one has discovered yet..

In just recent years some Killers started burying their victims on their property...

But that's a very bold move & mistake to make because all it takes is the one right Judge to sign the search warrant & your cooked well done..

Once again a type of Killer who thought he could fool everybody & he didn't think they would ever search his property...

There is no way to explain that away when the victim is found on your property..

Even though this avenue is possible we find it very unlikely on these 2 Cases..

On both Cases we still use a lot of GEO search locations..

So as it stands " We Are To Believe That We Have Two Killers Within 95 Miles From Each Other " ?

Who ever the killers are they have some of the tricks of the trade...

A lot of our Investigators were trained or are Old School Investigators...

I Profile in my Mind concerning the killer or killer's :

What they look like--- his voice sounds---their body language--their over all mannerisms---their common reactions...

Our Profilers can see the Killers right before our eyes but we just cant I.D. their face--how & why the victims were murdered..

Going by our schooling & experience its safe to say the type of Persons we are looking for but the Killers know this..

So they use counter- measures to off set any training you might have had & you know this but sometimes its hard to pick-up on that your being led to water...

One thing I am sure of we have that at least 5 staff members that if we had ever talked to the Killers we would know it..

While your doing that Dance with a Suspect they cant help to show you that they are in control with a hint of a confession without saying the words..

Its just something in their human-make up that just cant be changed..

Several of our Staff loves those types of Interviews because the more they talk the more you learn but yet they still think they are in control..


You just let them talk : Let them spin themselves in a web of hints that can be confirmed...

This can be found in every Killers DNA -- the Facts are there on the black-board but yet no Solid Evidence for an arrest...

A lot of our Staff was trained that there is " NO PERFECT MURDER " & there NEVER IS THE PERFECT ABDUCTION & MURDER..

Mistakes are made--items can be left behind--finger prints--hair & fiber then when DNA came in & now there is touch DNA...

You can now re-test old evidence using these new methods that could lead to Convictions..

There is always something left behind at any Crime Scene...

Unless their pro evidence scrubers that gets rid of evidence also-- but that's very unlikely concerning these 2 Cases..

It seems the only way these Cases will be solved is we have to Think Way Out Of Box...

There has to be common factors in each of Missing Female Cases--Not that they are Related--but in each Case there has to be something that stick's out that could solve both Cases..

In each Case its like an important factor that could balance out what we are looking for at this time..

Mja Inc Investigations

Into my Dreams into the night & what I see isn't a perfect picture..

My Guardian Angel & the Ghosts of the Past with the Devil listening in & watching for when my Soul has been haunted & when will it stop where I move on to turn page..

The deck is stacked against me at every turn & more so when its a concerning Missing Persons & Unsolved Crimes & The Doe's that is a ColdCase..

I thought years ago that I gave my Soul to the Calling which was to help get Cases some type of closure..

I breathed that in for years concerning my work thinking it was my Calling & even though I questioned myself how far would I go to seek Justice..

I was trained old-school the starting the Miami Vice Days famous for there Undercover Operations..

Back in the day we bent rules but never breaking them & we thought out of the box..

I had some of the Best Handlers & I made the rules of making Cases..

My first rule was no making Cases on Family & Friends which was granted & if one of them needed rehab we got them help under the books..

A Female friend of mine got herself into trouble with Prosutiton at a Gambingly House..

I arranged a deal for her : If she gave up the names & lay out the house plan they would raid the place & her name would never show up on any paper work..

They raided the Gambling House & found books for Credit to GM & Chrysler workers..

Before the Trial they sent us both to Brandon Floria until court time..

Some Reporter's have asked when I will retire from this work & my reply was never..That I will die at my desk just like my first Handler..

My Guardian Angel guides me to the right path that has been less taken--The Ghost's are the Victims where there is no movement on the Case..

The Devil is there to keep everything in check that is balanced in his Favor..

But with more Missing Person being found & more Doe's are being Indentified & the of the Unsolved Homicides being solved--the Devil has lost his EDGE..
