The Latest: Search related to missing student finds nothing
HAVERHILL, N.H. (AP) — The Latest on the search of a New Hampshire home in relation to the 2004 disappearance of a college student (all times local):
Authorities who searched a single-family home in northern New Hampshire say they have found no evidence connected to a college student who disappeared in 2004 after her car crashed.
Associate Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin said at a news conference Wednesday that authorities found “absolutely nothing” connected to the disappearance of Maura Murray after they cut and removed some concrete in an area where ground-penetrating radar had indicated a disturbance.
Authorities searched several feet down, and all they found was a small piece of possibly pottery or old piping.
Murray was a 21-year-old University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student when she lied to professors about a death in the family and left campus on Feb. 9, 2004.
Murray’s father believes his daughter is dead, the victim of a crime.
Authorities are in an area of a northern New Hampshire town related to an ongoing investigation into the disappearance of 21-year-old woman back in 2004.
Maura Murray was last seen on Route 112 in Haverhill after she crashed her car. The University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student left campus on Feb. 9, 2004.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office said in a statement Wednesday the office’s presence “is related to an ongoing investigation into the Maura Murray case.” She couldn’t provide further information.
Murray’s father, Fred Murray, believes his daughter is dead, the victim of a crime. In February, the attorney general’s office said it was aware of his contention that cadaver dogs and a radar scan identified something hidden in the basement of a house in the area.
