Episode # 15: The Mysterious Disappearance of Brianna Maitland
Summary of the Case:
In 2004, 17-year-old Brianna Maitland was living with a friend and working part-time. She had just taken her GED. On March 19th, she worked an evening shift at a restaurant and then left to go home. No one would ever see her again. Her car would later be found crashed into an abandoned farm house on a rural road. Thinking it was a drunk driver, police had the car towed and did not preserve the scene.
It took family and friends 5 days to realize she was missing and file a repot. However, police were suspicious she was a runaway. Multiple theories have emerged, including trying to tie her disappearance to the disappearance of Maura Murray, or the serial killer Israel Keys, however no one theory has fully explained the mysterious disappearance of Brianna.
In 2006, a man thought he saw Brianna at a casino in Atlantic City. The footage was recovered, and while the Maitland’s were at first hopeful it was her, they have since concluded it most likely is not.
Brianna was wearing jeans and sneakers when she went missing. Her shirt is unknown, but she may have also been wearing a black apron. She was between 5’3 and 5’5, and between 105-118lbs. She was caucasian, and had brown hair and hazel eyes. She had a faint scar above her left eyebrow, and her left nostril was pierced.
