February 9, 2004, was no ordinary day for 21-year-old University of Massachusetts nursing student Maura Murray. The Dean’s List student leaves campus without telling a soul and heads north in her beat-up 1996 Saturn sedan. Several hours later, she vanishes without a trace off the side of Route 112 in Woodsville, a village in the town of Haverhill, New Hampshire. She is never seen again. This day will haunt her family and friends for the rest of their lives. This season examines one of the country’s most widely recognized true crime mysteries as told by those who lived it.
