New Documentary Focus’ on Disappearance of Former West Point Student
We have seen the popularity of true crime documentaries rise in the past few years. With shows like Netflix "Making a Murderer" and the podcast Serial being as popular as they are it was natural that we would see more interesting cases.
Oxygen Network, which used to be station focused more towards the woman's demographic, has become a true crime dedicated network. Their first show is focused on The Disappearance of Maura Murray.
Murray, who disappeared in 2004, was a former student at West Point. She later transferred to the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Her sister also attended West Point along with her boyfriend at the time.
The facts behind the case are very cut and dry. Murray emailed her professors that there had been a death in the family and she would be missing class. She then cut out of work and took money out of her account. After, she quickly stopped at a liquor store and then took off.
Her family has stated that there wasn't a death in the family. Which leads us to believe that something else was going on.
Maura was last seen after crashing her car on the night of February 9th, 2004. A few people saw her and offered to call police. When the police showed up, she was gone.
You can watch as investigators reopen the 14 year old case to help bring peace to Marua's family. The Disappearance of Maura Murray airs Saturday nights on Oxygen at 7pm.
