Prior to her disappearance, Maura Murray discussed fantasies she had about running away with a secret boyfriend she had at UMass. Over the years, there have been compelling sightings in Canada and, later, Florida. In September of 2021, I was contacted by a person claiming to be Maura Murray, who knew details that only those close to Maura or her family would know. It’s possible this person was a troll, of course, but NH prosecutors are taking that tip very seriously.
Over the weekend, I was contacted by a well-known attorney in Vermont, Gary McQuesten, who read my write-up and wishes to offer his services to Maura Murray in the event that she is, in fact, alive and well. McQuesten can act as a liaison between Maura and law enforcement, so that she could reveal that she is alive without revealing her location – their conversations would be protected by attorney/client privilege. At his request, I’m am publishing his contact info below.
McQuesten is well respected in his field and has a history of helping victims in strange missing persons cases. From his website:
He has been a partner with the firm since 1980. He received his B.A. from the University of Vermont and a J.D. Degree from Western New England College. He is admitted to the Bar in Vermont and the U.S. District Court of Vermont. He is a former member of the Board of Governors of the Vermont Trial Lawyers Association and a current member of the Vermont and Washington County Bar Associations.
Among years of successful trials and significant settlements, Gary has donated his time to numerous cases without charging any fee. In the late 1990’s he represented the six children of a woman who was missing under suspicious circumstances. Over a period of one and a half years, without fee, he successfully obtained Social Security death benefits for the children. This result occurred because of a court trial that convinced the presiding judge to order the medical examiner to issue a death certificate. This was accomplished in spite of the fact that no body was ever found.
If Maura is alive, she can contact McQuesten directly by email: firstname.lastname@example.org Or by phone: 802 272-6577.
