Maury, You dedicated your entire life to speaking your truth. You, unlike many others, found honesty to be admirable, and it is just to exude nothing but the truth. Your profoundly active measures to uncover the truth has so much more value then You had ever originally intended, your dedication has inspired many in the moral regards to Justice. I hope you rest easy knowing that you were right... all along.

Thank you Maury, Forever in the hearts of many who admire True crime, and the measures that must be very properly and methodically taken. we now not fear the unknown, we now rejoinder to the Truth .

Yours Truly,
Jaxx From Australia.

As many others, I'm here after watching the Netflix doc. This case took a massive tool on you Mr Terry but what you did... It was big back then, and it is big now. I believe you and I'm sure more and more people will too. You can rest now and I hope you have found your answers.

Maury's book and research had a profound influence upon the research others have done on the occult and unsolved mystery's of this world, may he rest in peace and find comfort... For there are others who will pick up Maury's torch and bring illumination into the darkness.

I ve seen the dicumentation in Netflix. Maury seems to be an example for investigative journalism. Today this kind of journalism to detect the truth is very seldom.
