The witness was about 10 when this occurred so the event was probably not fully understood. What he remembered was that this woman showed up, looking for a place to hide from a couple men. He believes, after seeing Maura Murray's photo, that it was her. He says his aunt believes it was her as well, though I am still hoping to speak to the aunt directly.
There are a number of cheap rental lodges around Back Lake. And they are open for business in February.
Is it possible Maura was staying at one of these lodges for a bit?
Did somebody come looking for her, causing her to have to wait to return to the lodge until they were gone?
