On the subject of Monday Feb. 09 AM by my observations at Wikipedia:
Sunday, February 8, 2004
2:30 AM - Maura leaves her friend's dorm and heads to her father's hotel room.
4:49 AM - Maura calls her boyfriend, who is stationed in Oklahoma, from her father's cell phone.
Maura probably doesn't get to sleep until at least 5AM.
Most likely she got her 8 hours sleep - but everyone differs. By the activity the next day - I'd say she woke up at around noon.
# 11:26 PM - Maura talks to her father and agrees to get the necessary forms pertaining to the accident from the registry on Monday. They agree to discuss the forms via telephone Monday night.
# Time unknown - Maura searches for directions to Burlington, Vermont.(From New Hampshire State Police Troop F Commander Lt. John Scarinza's inspection of Maura's computer hard drive).
# Time unknown - Maura searches for information on the Berkshires.(Source unknown).
So the last thing Maura does before she searches for directions to Vermont is...talk to her dad.
What I don't know is "how long" she might have been searching.
(Also I mention that if anything bad happened to her in Amhurst [which could only be proven by someone saying it was not Maura that went to ATM/Liquor store, but instead look alike]
Under the assumption nothing bad happened - and her sleeping pattern was go to bed at 5AM wake up at 12 or so...
First thing she did after getting up was resume her search.
# 12:55 PM - Maura calls for information about a condominium in Bartlett, New Hampshire that her family is familiar with. The call lasts for three minutes. No condominium is rented.
# 1:00 PM - Maura sends her boyfriend an e-mail, briefly stating she hasn't felt like talking to anyone, but that she will call him later in the day.
# 1:13 PM - Maura calls another student and leaves a voicemail. No significant information.
# 2:05 PM - Maura calls 800-GOSTOWE for approximately 5 minutes. Later research shows this number was out of order on this day and that only recordings were available for listening.
# 2:18 PM - Maura calls her boyfriend for approximately 1 minute.
# 4:00 PM or earlier - Maura e-mails one of her bosses and some of her teachers to inform them that there has been a death in her family and that she would be out of town for several days. There is no death in her family.
One question I have is.... what was it about her last call with Dad that motivated her to go off? That is - if nothing bad happened at Amhurst.
If the FBI has cleared the possibility of foul play in Amhurst - and the ID is positive at the ATM and Liquor store and we have at least a Maura look alike 200 miles away -(to say that was not planned asks us to believe that God performs evil miracles [evil being that lo and behold a Maura look alike is in the car when it was found.])
And if most of her time was spent on the computer until the early hours of the morning - then...
I can draw no other conclusion other then she and Dad were either planning this -> or that conversation was what made her go off.
The whole discussion about Maura being upset a few days ago distracts us from asking about the last conversation she had with Dad.
Or maybe at that point - she knew that the Cat was away so she could play.
Like I said before - all that had to be done was follow Maura up to where the car was found and take her to her ultimate destination. In the meantime the focus would likely remain at the car site and it could be confusing enough to pull off. Why - I don't know.
Also if this was done - the perps could rely on the fact that someone would get upset at the idea being brought up - keep people quiet or bullied out of solving the issue.
Now - assuming something bad happened to her - maybe whoever knows has already figured out for themselves that it won't make a difference in solving the case.
