Butch Atwood Interview NHLI
« on: December 13, 2019, 04:14:57 pm »


Attwood Residence

I walked up to the house -- Mr. Attwood answered the door and I asked if I could speak with him regarding the Maura Murray case. Mr. Attwood responded, "She got in a car and disappeared end of story."11

I plead with him to please help us learn more about the evening, we don't have any clues and are looking for anything to lead us to Maura. Mr. Attwood again responded, "She got in a car and disappeared end of story -- that is it."12

Mrs. Attwood [Lady younger than the elder woman (mother) who is hard of hearing] said "Yes, please John help her." And invited Me into the front porch area of the home.

Attwood arrived at 7:35 p.m. Maura was in the car, sitting there with no lights on.

I asked was there anyone else in the car?

Attwood responded, no one else was in the car.

[There was a little confusion with the next set of questions, when he first commented he said that Maura was in the car and could not get out, because the car was facing the barn and door was blocked. But then said she got out of the car and stood outside the car.]

Attwood asked Maura "Are you okay?"

Maura: "Yes fine"

Attwood to me, "I looked over the scene and saw no blood."

At this point I asked for confirmation regarding the location of Maura. He described Maura as looking over the car.

Attwood described Maura, "She didn't look like the pictures, her hair was down, it must have come undone during the accident."

Attwood to Maura: "I am going to call the police."

Maura. "I have called AAA"

Attwood to me: I am thinking you can't call from here.

Attwood to Maura: "I am going to call the police."

Maura responded no.

Attwood to Maura: "No I am going to call the police."

Attwood then left Maura and returned home, entering the house to call.

Attwood noted during this time 3-4 cars went by.

I then asked him if he saw Maura walk towards his house since he was on the front porch.

He said no, that Maura was picked up13 and that during this time they could not see the crash site. He then noted that he did not think that the dog had a scent. He just walked, around looking up -- "that wasn't a dog that smelled anything but squirrels."

How much time elapsed while you were inside calling? Attwood: 7-9 min.

Attwood then described how he had to make 5 or so calls because the dispatcher could not connect him.

Attwood then said he went out looked up the road saw the police and then presuming all was taken care of, got back into his bus to do his mileage.

Mrs. Attwood then said that she heard the dispatcher call noting they were looking for a girl (they have a scanner on the front porch). Mr. Attwood then said, "It is just beam me up Scotty time."

Then Mrs. Attwood said it came across the scanner that the windshield had broke.

Mr. Attwood then said that while he was in the bus he heard a knock on the bus door and found out that Maura wasn't at the scene. Mr. Attwood then said he got in his car at 8:10 with his spotlight and searched the area without finding her.

I then started to say goodbye and thank them when he asked "What about that call?"

I responded, "What call?"

Attwood said, the call that was made after the incident -- the last call the boyfriend received.14

I told him the last call Bill received was before the accident.

Attwood then said, "I just should have insisted that she get in the bus -- I tried to get her into the bus."

Mrs. Attwood then said that she was "probably more scared of you."

Attwood then told me that he was very good friends with Officer Smith and to tell him that Butch sent me and that the police will let the family see all the records.

End of conversation.

Tim Westman -- white house across the street no one home.


11 Atwood does not say she may have or could have but rather he makes a definitive statement, She got into a car.

12 As above

13 As above

14 Is this a reference to the Feb 11th call that Bill Rausch received? How would Atwood know about it? Was it reported to the media?
