On the eight year anniversary of Maura Murray's disappearance, a YouTube user named Mr112dirtbag began uploading strange, cryptic, and disturbing videos that contain information and details related to Maura's case. National and international news sources have written articles about the mysterious videos, including Daily Mail and Fox News.
The username Mr112dirtbag is related to the Maura Murray case. Maura disappeared on New Hampshire Route 112. Fred Murray, Maura's father, speculated on the show "Disappeared" that Maura may have been abducted by "some local dirt bags."
Mr112dirtbag deleted some videos, but James Renner managed to save "Happy Anniversary" and "Maura Murray." The first video uploaded was "Happy Anniversary." It features an older man with glasses laughing for nearly a minute. He stops abruptly and then winks before the words "Happy Anniversary" appear on screen.
The next video, titled "Maura Murray," features a ski pass to Bretton Hills Mountain Resort. Bretton Woods is located at Route 302 in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. The date on the pass reads 2/11/04, 2 days after Maura went missing. The mountain resort is less than an hour away from where Maura vanished in 2004.
Another video, titled "Bodies of Water," features a covered bridge as viewed from a car's interior. The weather is rainy and the video is set to classical music.
Who is Mr112dirtbag? Northeastern University Criminologist Jack Levin analyzed the videos and believes the creator is possibly involved with Maura's disappearance and, at the very least, a sadist. Here is a list of other possible usernames and online identities:

Other possible Mr112dirtbag connections, including murderer and escapee John William McGrath and the Connecticut River Valley Killer, have been mentioned on James Renner's "My Search for Maura Murray" blog and the SomethingAwful forums. I'll explore these possible connections in more depth in future posts.
