A lair is a home; A castle; A burrow; A haven; a place where one should feel safe. To ensure our safety especially in one's lair, we have laws. And some laws cause more harm than good!

This is a good place. There's lots to see and do. It's apolitical while providing non-partisan news about politics, which we can't escape.

Check out my aquarium and feed the fish; check out my post(s), my favorite media list and the many links to websites that promote what I feel is important.

Time for the awakening...

That is what my goal is here... to present topics which highlight the plight of people. Why, 2000 years after Caesar Augustus, are we still a people being hurt? With all our advancements in technology, medicine, communications, why are we a people still being hurt? Human nature hasn't changed much, but that doesn't mean it isn't time now for that to happen, and it is undoubtedly happening - hard to see however. This blog is part of that change and a witness to it.

BRIANNA MAITLAND REVISITED - 17 YEAR OLD BRIANNA MAITLAND DISAPPEARED MARCH 19TH, 2004

Edited, Aug. 28, 2013

On March 15th of this year I posted Part One of a multi-part post pertaining to the disappearance of Brianna Maitland, 17 year's old, in VT, 9 years earlier, along with Maura Murray, from MA, who vanished Feb. 09, 2004 far from home in a wilderness called Haverhill, NH.

Part One as it stands remains one of my top four posts in the four years I've been blogging. So for all the readers I thought a revisit was a post of interest. Since March, I've had 1551 page-views relating to those posts. Prior to publishing those posts, I was a guest writer for Slam Dunks Blog, in around 2008 - 09. I wrote about my personal experience helping two families with children missing, along with Slam Dunks himself, an ex-police officer, and excellent blogger who generally publishes a Monday Night "Missing Persons" case.

It's a result of my work with Slam Dunks that I started blogging myself. Unfortunately many of the links to Slam Dunks blog pertaining to Brianna Maitland are unavailable the last I knew. This is unfortunate as Slam Dunks accomplished a lot with the Brianna Maitland case, including a tip towards the end from a frustrated VT resident who claimed to live with the ex-boyfriend of Brianna Maitland, the fellow who drove by her car returning from Canada at around 4 -5 AM the morning after she disappeared. He didn't report her car crashed backwards into an old abandoned house immediately. It was only later under questioning that he allegedly admitted to seeing her car that next morning.

There was a commenter on Slam Dunks toward Part 27... toward the conclusion of around 14 posts myself, that a woman wrote a comment, several actually; the woman thought we could help her friend, the ex-boyfriend of Brianna who drove by her car at 4 - 5 AM. The commenter wrote... "my friend knows what happened to Brianna, he knows where she can be found" - NOTE: The previous quote is from memory... somewhere among the thousand or more docs and pictures from the endeavor assisting her family.

We were not in a capacity to help her... or help her friend who she alleged was the  ex-boyfriend who was haunted by her disappearance. We were "just" bloggers... not to diminish our strengths, but we aren't able to simply evoke the force when asked. What I did do was put her in touch so she could speak with Brianna's father, Bruce. He verified they spoke.

Brianna remains missing, so either the person with an important message from her friend,  or authorities, had nothing substantial or not enough to conduct a search of an area the commenter claims held Brianna's remains. That's what makes this, a person missing and efforts to find her so frustrating!

As an additional thank-you to all those reading my Brianna/Maura posts, here is some more information.

Five weeks prior to Brianna's disappearance she got a job she really wanted at the restaurant in Montgomery. The "Black Lantern" it was called then. I've heard they have changed their name since then. Three weeks prior to her disappearance she was at a party with all the "cool" friends in her area. At the time she had broken up again with the boyfriend mentioned previously, who lived closer to her now since she got the job at the BL. It's rumored this caused problems, her getting the job at the BL and being close again to the EX. Regardless, a fight between a good friend of hers and the friend's cousin resulted in a bad fight that night. The EX drove her home.

After Brianna disappeared 3 weeks later the assault was still fresh in her parent's minds. They even had posters made to distribute when she disappeared showing her bruises. The police talked them out of posting them. Brianna herself according to a friend I spoke with, was in the process filing charges against the two women who beat her up - childhood friends. The charges were dropped of course after Brianna wasn't around to continue the proceedings.

Early on there were rumors she'd been abducted and murdered and her body either thrown into a manure pit on a nearby by farm or dropped in a tank of acid and dissolved. The problem with the first scenario is that there were two farms owned by the homeowner who himself is an elderly man, but it's his son who was suspect. His son, a musician, it was claimed, had gone nuts one day and claimed he knew what happened to her. He further claimed to have been in a house with one other person when mystery person told him Brianna's body was in the manure pit.

The pit was sucked up and no bones were found by the police.

Later, back to the commenter on Slam Dunks blog, she claimed the wrong farm had been searched. It was at the owners second farm where her body was located. By this time with new owners.

But let's back-track a bit.

The "claim" that the muscian was in a room with a guy that told him Brianna's body was dumped "there".

I spoke with the wife of the guy, a guy who dated Brianna when she was 14... he was older...  who it was alleged had heard that she had been present during a discussion between her husband and the musician. She was on the Grand Jury investigating Brianna so by law she could not disclose information heard withing the Grand Jury, so I had to be careful, asking her - so I asked her a simple question: "Was her husband told, while in her presence,  that Brianna's body was in 'said' manure pit"?

She answered only that she remembered the night I was asking about, as she was with her husband and the musician, but nothing was said like what suggested, or said was said.

RE: the musician. Early on in late 2004-05 he was of interest... he'd had an alleged "break-down", had admitted to knowing what happened to Brianna, but this was all hearsay. What we needed to do was sit down and talk to him. On the day we did it was hot... along with Brianna's father Bruce, another two people were asking questions at the other farm the owner owned. I had an invitation however, provided by a mutual friend of both Brianna and the musician... Red set it up that I could go to the farmhouse and with Brianna's father sit down with the musician and talk.

We arrived, her father and I at the house. A well muscled dude with a woman were outside. I got out of the truck and asked the man if I could speak with the musician?

"About what"? He asked.

"Brianna Mait..."

I didn't get a chance to finished before he launched into a tirade about Brianna. He had nothing nice to say and threatened us.  He had a message for Brianna's father, not knowing he was in the truck listening. After delivering his message Bruce Maitland yelled out, "I'm Mr. Maitland, and I can tell you I heard everything you said".

A couple of weeks later Mr. Maitland was able to sit down with the musician and Mr. Maitland told me the musician had nothing to do with Brianna's disappearance.

Which brings us back to the ex-boyfriend and a friend who claims he's suffering know where she is. I'm referring to the comment left at Slam Dunks, which when I find it again I'll post it...

It's easy to put a spin on Brianna Maitland's disappearance and think a serial killer or police imposter abducted her, or a crazed "Butterfly Collector". There is the inclusion of evidence that she associated with drug dealers who provided her with crack cocaine. The original theory was that she owed money to these crack dealers... yet two uncashed paychecks were found on the front of her passenger seat. If "they" wanted money don't you think they'd make her cash the checks first???

They didn't care, is my take... her disappearance in my opinion had nothing to do with drugs and everything to do with petty, teenage jealousy.

As one of her best friends told me, "Brianna was far too attractive for women in our area". She... "inspired jealousy".



The last I heard from her father was that VSP were active in solving her disappearance, that he'd agreed to cooperate fully which involved not working with the public.

The reason I wrote my blog posts about Brianna when I did is a cat has nine lives... Brianna loved cats, and loved her cat, I recall she was named Shadow. Nine years have passed. Long past time to find Brianna. Time to shed a light on the shadow and discover the truth within. A truth which I believe is known by more than one person.

  2. No. Slam Dunk has not been blogging for awhile now, and the links he had to Brianna don't seem to work.

  4. RE: BRIANNA MAITLAND

    LET ME TELL YOU THIS. THE POLICE REALLY FUCKED UP THIS CASE BUT GOOD, AND IT WAS A CASE THAT COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN SOLVED. THEY MADE SOME BIG MISTAKES WITH SOME SERIOUS REPERCUSSIONS. IT'S CRYSTAL CLEAR TO ME WHO KILLED THIS POOR GIRL. IT WAS ONE, OR BOTH, OF THE GIRLS WHO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF HER. I BELIEVE HER NAME WAS KELLY LACROSSE, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THEY BEAT BRIANNA WITHIN AN INCH OF HER LIFE THAT DAY, AND THEN WENT BACK TO FINISH THE JOB AND ENSURE THEY WOULDN'T BE SPENDING ONE DAY IN JAIL FOR IT. THAT IS A PERFECT MOTIVE AND A PRIME REASON IF I'VE EVER SEEN ONE. SOMEONE WHO IS CAPABLE OF INFLICTING AND UNLEASHING THAT KIND OF HORRENDOUS RAGE, FURY, DAMAGE, PAIN, SUFFERING, AND INJURY TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING, ESPECIALLY ONE WHO "CLAIMS" TO BE A FRIEND OR FRIENDS, OBVIOUSLY HAS DEEP SEEDED HATRED/JEALOUSY, NO SELF CONTROL, AND HAS NO COMPUNCTION ABOUT TAKING IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF MURDER ITSELF!!

    I MEAN JESUS CHRIST, DID THE COPS NOT SEE WITH THEIR OWN EYES JUST HOW BADLY THIS POOR GIRL WAS BEATEN. WHO IN THE HELL DOES SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO ANOTHER PERSON??!! THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WHATSOEVER THAT IT WAS PURE HOMICIDAL, JEALOUS, AND HATE-FUELED RAGE TOWARD BRIANNA. THIS WAS A CRIME OF RAGE, HATRED, AND JEALOUSY, PURE AND SIMPLE. A PERSON HAS TO BE PRETTY ENRAGED TO INFLICT THOSE KINDS OF HORRENDOUS, GHASTLY, APPALLING, CRUEL, VICIOUS, AND VIOLENT INJURIES.

  5. JESUS, LACROSSE EVEN TOLD HER FRIEND THAT THERE WAS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT AT THE GRAND JURY HEARING, BECAUSE BRIANNA WOULD NOT BE THERE. OH REALLY, AND HOW WOULD SHE KNOW SOMETHING LIKE THAT UNLESS SHE KNEW BRIANNA WAS ALREADY DEAD, BECAUSE SHE HAD ALREADY KILLED HER AND THEN DISPOSED OF HER?? SHE KNEW SHE HAD NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. THE COPS SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS GIRL FROM DAY ONE.

    WHY IN THE HELL DID THE PARENTS EVER LISTEN TO THEM AND AGREE NOT TO POST/DISTRIBUTE THOSE PICTURES/POSTERS OF BRIANNA WITH ALL THOSE TERRIBLE, HEINOUS, AND AWFUL BRUISES, CUTS, SCRATCHES, AND TWO BLACK EYES??!!! AND WHERE THE HELL WERE THE POLICE?? IF I WERE THE PARENTS YOU CAN BET YOUR SWEET ASS I WOULD HAVE FILED A CIVIL SUIT AGAINST THE PERPETRATORS. THAT'S WHAT REALLY PISSES ME OFF THE MOST. WHY AREN'T THESE PARENTS BEING MORE AGGRESSIVE WITH THEIR CHILDREN WHEN IT COMES TO DEFENDING AND PROTECTING THEMSELVES. WHY AREN'T THESE WOMEN PACKING SOME HEAVY DUTY PROTECTION ON THEM AT ALL TIMES. I NEVER STEP OUT OF MY HOUSE UNARMED. I ALWAYS CARRY A GUN WITH HOLLOW POINT BULLETS, AS WELL AS A KNIFE AND A SMALL, BUT POWERFUL, FOG HORN CANISTER THAT EMITS AN EAR-PIERCING BLAST THAT WOULD STOP A CHARGING ELEPHANT OR BEAR, AND I'M NOT AFRAID TO SCREAM MY ASS OFF ANY TIME OR ANY PLACE. I WILL GO NUTS ON SOMEONE IF I HAVE TO. I ALSO WALK WITH A FIERCE AND CONFIDENT ATTITUDE AND A REAL SENSE OF PURPOSE. I ALWAYS SEND OUT A THREATENING SIGNAL THAT SAYS "DON'T FUCK WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO LIVE". I JUST DON'T TAKE NO SHIT OFF OF NO ONE. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THESE PARENTS DON'T TEACH THEIR KIDS TO BE AGGRESSIVE, ASSERTIVE, DEFENSIVE, TOUGH, ALERT, CAREFUL, AND ARM THEMSELVES. IF THESE WOMEN HAD PROPERLY ARMED THEMSELVES WITH A GUN, AN EAR-PIERCING FOG HORN, AND THE MEANS TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THEMSELVES, THEY WOULD NOT BE DEAD RIGHT NOW. YOU HAVE TO BE VERY TOUGH, RESILIENT, CAREFUL, HARD, AND THICK SKINNED TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD OR IT WILL EAT YOU ALIVE.

    IT'S LACROSSE WHO HAD BEEN DELIBERATELY AND INTENTIONALLY MISLEADING COPS BY MAKING FALSE STATEMENTS, LYING, AND SPOON-FEEDING THEM WORTHLESS, INACCURATE, MALICIOUS, AND DECEPTIVE STORIES AND INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CRIME, TRYING HER DAMNEDEST TO MISDIRECT THE INVESTIGATION AND THROW SUSPICION OFF OF HER. AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO THAT THEN TO ACCUSE TWO LOW-LIFE BLACK DRUG/DEATH DEALING PIECES OF SCUM WHO NO ONE WOULD GIVE A DAMN ABOUT?? HUH??

    NOT ONLY THAT, I WOULD LAY ODDS THAT THIS GIRL, OR GIRLS, GABBED ABOUT THE MURDER TO OTHERS. I'LL BET SOMEONE OR SOME PEOPLE KNOW ALL ABOUT THIS CRIME AND JUST AREN'T TALKING FOR WHATEVER REASON. SOMEONE KNOWS SOMETHING AND IF PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN JUST STAND BY IN SILENCE, EVEN IF THEY ARE DIDN'T ACTUALLY COMMIT THE CRIME, AND NOT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT IN THE NEXT LIFE, THEY ARE SADLY MISTAKEN. OUR CREATORS SEE AND KNOW EVERYTHING. MOST GIRLS WHO ARE THAT JEALOUS CAN'T KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT. THEY ARE TOO STUPID AND ALWAYS END UP GETTING CAUGHT BY INCRIMINATING THEMSELVES. AS I SAID, I WOULDN'T BE A BIT SURPRISED IF BOTH GIRLS ACTUALLY COMMITTED THIS CRIME. REMEMBER HER MOTHER HAD STATED THAT BRIANNA HAD TAKEN SELF-DEFENSE CLASSES AND COULD HAVE DEFENDED HERSELF, BUT CHOSE NOT TO FIGHT BACK BECAUSE SHE WANTED EVERYONE TO LIKE HER. WHAT A SAD, SAD STATEMENT TO MAKE. SO MY GUESS IS THAT IT WOULD LIKELY TAKE TWO, MAYBE EVEN THREE PEOPLE TO SUBDUE, CONTROL, AND KILL HER. I WOULD LAY ODDS THAT LACROSSE HAD HELP. THEY PROBABLY WAITED FOR BRIANNA TO DRIVE HOME AND THEN AMBUSHED HER BY RUNNING HER OFF THE ROAD. THEN IT JUST SNOWBALLED FROM THERE.

    YEP, THE COPS HAVE BEEN PLAYED BIG TIME. THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN AGGRESSIVELY PURSUING LACROSSE RIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING. I WOULD HAVE, BECAUSE SHE IS BRIANNA'S KILLER. IT ALL POINTS TO HER.
