About a year ago, several people noticed a woman that looked like Maura Murray in a clip posted to YouTube. The video shows a woman and her daughter during a kind of prank that happened outside a preview screening for The Force Awakens in 2015. Here are some screen caps. Click here to see more.
I have not posted about this because I kept expecting it to be debunked, but it has not been and the rumor persists that this may be Maura with a child. Tracing back the origin of this clip takes you to Reddit, where it was originally posted by “KayPeaches09,” who then deleted their profile. The timing, coming as a grand jury began its investigation into Bill Rausch, was curious. As one Redditor notes:
If the footage
of the woman resembling Maura was shot at a preview for 2015’s Star
Wars: The Force Awakens, Maura (if living) would have been 33 at the
time and if pregnant around the time she went missing her child would
have been around 11. This does seem to match the ages of the woman and
child we see in the video.
to the timing of the release of this video…Bill’s name has been
coming up online as of late with the idea that he might have done harm
to Maura. If Maura were alive, perhaps she would feel bad about Bill’s
name being linked to her presumed demise (or someone who knows her feels
that way), and thus the video has been pointed out to us as “proof” of
The original video has since been deleted from YouTube.
Hopefully the woman in this video sees this post and comes forward to debunk this theory.
Someone found the video!
The woman appears at 1:20 in.
