Residents warn searchers
HAVERHILL (AP) - Family members of Maura Murray, a Massachusetts student who disappeared following a minor car accident in New Hampshire, have been warned by police that they could be arrested if they trespass on property surrounding the accident site.
Haverhill Police Chief Jeff Williams said in an April 2 letter to Murray’s father that his department has received a written request from area residents complaining about repeated trespassing and parking problems.
Williams said the property owners also are excluding friends and relatives of Maura Murray; volunteer searchers, canine handlers, private investigators, media, and others seeking clues or searching for her.
Murray, a 21-yearold Hanson, Mass., resident and junior at the U niversity of Massachusetts, disappeared after she was involved in a one-car accident the night of Feb. 9 on Route 112 in Haverhill.
