I must have looked through Bill and Maura’s cell phone bills a hundred times but yesterday a Redditor noticed something I never saw. Here’s what “Ashthered” had to say:
having a look at Bills phone records, I noticed something which seems
strange to me, although I’m not sure if what I have noticed is accurate
and so would appreciate it if someone with more knowledge could correct
me if I’m wrong, sorry if this gets confusing but bare with me…
On Feb 8th at 2:49pm Bill makes a 2 min call to Maura which I presume
was him leaving Maura a message as her phone was off at the time, then 1
minute later he calls another Amherst number 413-546-????, i am
presuming this is Maura’s dorm room (could be wrong but makes sense).
Then on the same day at 4:47 and 5:45 he calls Mauras mobile again
which both go unanswered and then his next call is to that same number
again which surely is Maura’s dorm. It would make sense to try Maura’s
mobile, if she doesn’t answer, then try her dorm.
So if I am correct then Bill on the day before Maura disappears,
twice tries to contact her at her dorm after she has failed to answer
Then on the Feb 9th, after Maura’s last ever call to Bill at 2:18pm,
where they don’t actually talk but Maura may have left a short message,
Bill calls Maura another 8 times before around 5pm on the 10th which
would roughly be when Bill was told she was missing, and not once does
he try her on her dorm phone, this surely suggests that he must know she
is not at Umass, otherwise surely he would have tried her dorm phone
again, just like he did on the 8th, twice.
Maybe I have got this wrong and if so I will be very grateful if
somebody could correct me, but if not then I’m sure this looks like Bill
knew she was going somewhere, before everyone else did?
Bill doesn’t like to be ignored. On Feb 8th and 9th, he’s calling Maura’s cell phone and dorm, trying to get her to talk to him. When he can’t reach her, he calls Kate Markopoulos on her cell phone and also Kate’s dorm room. But Maura doesn’t want to talk and sends him an email
text saying so. That doesn’t work for him though so he calls Maura’s cell again three times in three minutes. But she doesn’t pick up.
By all accounts, Bill is acting manic on February 9, as Maura is ignoring him. He makes a total of 52 calls that day from his cell phone while he’s in the field at Fort Sill and after. Calls to ex-girlfriends, mentors from West Point, and family. He’s reaching out.
Later that night, he tries to get Maura to talk to him again. But he doesn’t try her dorm again. When he can’t reach her in the morning, does he try her dorm room? Nope. It’s a break in character for him – when she didn’t answer on Sunday, he’s trying her cell, her dorm, her friend’s dorm, and her friend’s cell phone. But on Tuesday, he doesn’t try Maura on her dorm, even though by all accounts he doesn’t learn that she’s missing from UMass until around 5 p.m. that evening, when the Murray family calls him.
In fact, after the Murrays call him to say Maura’s missing, he doesn’t call her cell phone either. He doesn’t try to call her, even though she’s missing, for two hours. His first thought isn’t to immediately try to get his girlfriend to pick up but to call the operator, inquiring about hotels in New Hampshire.
This makes no sense to me. Does it make any sense to you?
In light of allegations against Bill Rausch by multiple women of sex assault and harassment in D.C., I think everyone close to the investigation should sit down and go over timelines of the days following Maura’s disappearance.
Another Redditor noticed that after Bill learns Maura’s missing, he calls Kate Markopoulos’ dorm for 6 minutes.
