Rita Maze

The FBI are investigating whether a Montana woman who was reportedly kidnapped actually locked herself in the trunk of her car and committed suicide.

Rita Maze, 47, of Great Falls, Montana, called her husband and police on Tuesday and said she was kidnapped from a highway rest stop and stuffed in her car trunk.

Maze called her husband at about 10:30 Tuesday, saying "Help me, help me!"

The longtime elementary school cook had traveled to her childhood home in Helena, Montana early Tuesday to visit her mother. She was allegedly kidnapped as she drove back home to Great Falls.

Her husband reported her missing that night.

The FBI, which is leading the investigation, joined the case after Maze's cell phone signal was tracked across 3 states.

Her car and her body were found just after midnight Wednesday in Spokane, Washington, about 325 miles from Helena, where she was raised with her 10 brothers and sisters.

The strange kidnapping case took a new twist when authorities discovered her gun was locked in the trunk near her body.

Police have ruled out robbery in the case.

Maze's purse containing $50 was found on the passenger seat of her car and 2 iPads were on the backseat, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review newspaper.

Police found the keys in the car's ignition, the newspaper reports.

Blood was on the ground at a Wolf Creek, Montana rest stop off highway I-15. A $20 bill was found on the ground nearby.

A person of interest seen on surveillance video inside a convenience store has been ruled out as a suspect.

“We know where the body was located; we know where she started out,” Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told the Spokane Spokesman-Review.? "What happened in between? Don't know."

Adding to the mystery was Maze's description of her abductor as a 6'5" black male or a Native American wearing a hoodie.

American Indians are plentiful in Montana, but 6'5" black males wearing hoodies are a rare sight.

Maze's daughter dismissed the theory that her mother killed herself after staging an elaborate hoax.

Rochelle Maze said she spoke with her mother for 10 minutes before she died on Tuesday.

She said her mother was "hysterical" and hard to understand when they spoke.

"She did not hit herself, stuff herself in the truck and drive all the way to Spokane and shoot herself," Maze told the paper.

Rochelle said her mother's credit card was used several times at convenience stores in Montana and Idaho.

"I believe they shot her and left the gun and keys in there to make it look like she killed herself," Rochelle told the paper. "I know she did not."

    Adding a Black man as the perpetrator always makes the story more believable.

  • MystyBlu

    Smdh I said from day 1 this mess was fishy. The story gets more and more implausible every day ?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    A 6'5 black man at that. I guess she was jacked by an NBA player.?

  • Andrea Williams

    Not the 6ft 5in. black man, in a hoodie no less! We are always going to be accused. SMDH!

  • i troll it like i see it

    When she said a native american was responsible it did make it sound like a possibility because it's montana, it's the black man part that probably made the cops give major side eye....either way, i'm sorry her daughter has to go through this.

  • felinelurker

    Happy Sunday! @SandraRose I'm surprised there is nothing on Hillary Clinton's "episode"

  • MookieFly

    So 6'5 and a hoodie? Let me guess...he had a durag on too? Foh I smell bs. If her card was used several times, why haven't they pulled up that info asap? Funny that robbery has been ruled out with that tidbit. Either she did it herself or...she did it herself. If someone was grimy enough to kidnap and kill you, they are most likely going to take your untraceable money. Run dem iPads too.

  • SummerBaby

    I knew from the get go that this story sounded odd. RIP! ??

  • MookieFly

    I didnt really follow the story when it first came out because I didn't care but this story got more potholes than the Chicago southside. Why would anyone be trying to kidnap this lady? She just a tad too old to be a kidnapping target unless there is a plan. What does she have that is so good? Stashed money? Social importance? Self esteem? Head game?

  • Kay J

    Just a thought- if this homicide was "black based" meaning if the victim was black, then would the FBI actually be involved x
    Again people....just a thought :)

  • JJ

    Hmm it's a possibility she killed herself but wanted daughter to get insurance money so she tried to make it look like a murder. Unfortunately for her she didnt realize this was one of the few instances she couldnt blame a black man.

  • PrettyBrown28

    I know it probably wasn't meant as a joke, but I ??? at your comment.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    There are black folks in Montana. Not a lot. But we are there. I don't think it was her saying this. The husband story seems fishy. From jump. He the racist here in MY mind. Not her.

  • Lisa daniels

    I said this sorry was fishy when the so call kidnapper ethnicity was brought up. If she did commit suicide, I dont feel sorry for her and if she was kidnapped, i hope they catch who did it.

  • Lisa daniels

    Why everytime something happens to a white woman, they blame black people? Like white men aint out here kidnapping, raping and molesting on the daily and laughing about how they got away with. Calling the police on themselves because the cops dont have a scooby doo clue what happened. Foh.

    We all agreed the story was fishy.

  • Hmmm~?

    That was what the victim described. No one is blaming it on a black person aside from her.

  • mel

    AMERICA's go to criME set up move.... It was a BLACK man ...the hoodie was added after Trayvon Martin (rip).... this definitely brings out LEO'S with guns blazing...no questions asked.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    I don't think this woman killed herself, I think she was attacked by someone her husband hired to murder her.

  • the guest

    I don't think one cancels out the other. When traveling out west, I was surprised at how many Native Americans look black.

    On TV they always show Native Americans looking more white or "Indian" looking with long straight dark hair when not all of them have straight hair. You'd be surprised how many have curly even kinky hair.

    The suspect could have been a 6.5 Native American male who looked light or medium skinned black.

    I'm thinking maybe the husband had her set up or something and just added the black man part to throw folks off. Who knows what she really said on the phone call or if she really did call him? But I wouldn't be surprised if husband is involved. Usually when I watch investigation discovery (ID) channel it's usually white people killing family members for insurance money or just money that's been in the family.

  • Canary Red™

    What in the world?!!?

  • S T

    Mm hm. The concern could be in the middle of Norway, in the dawn of a horrific snow storm, and somehow the assailant description will include: a black male.

    So they killed her. Left her valuables and money. She was able to call her daughter and husband from the trunk ? You'd be surprised what people will do when they want to kill themselves but still want relatives to collect that life insurance check.

    Isn't it true. Out there Mexicans and Native Anericans are the African Americans. The white people see them as black and call them black behind their backs. You get it, so you know you have to haved lived out there to get this.

    Now we know white women pull the a black man did it. But I don't think this is the case in this situation. She was saying in the perspective of that region that a 6.5 black looking Native American kidnapped her. A lot of them Native American men are real tall.

    Also they have another community out there called Tongan. Now Tongans look blacker than black people and they also are the African Americans in that west region.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    NOW I didn't say they were Black folks...I said they "look" Black sometimes...Messicans are mixed up folks (Mexican means mixed skins) so that's why some of them look "dark". Native Americans aren't pure either...white people killed most of them off so they had none of their kind to breed with hence mixing with Black folks and white folks.

    Black folks better learn...you take away the men...you fck up the race. Quit all that damn mixing and stick to your own kind...but hey most of ya'll don't wanna be Black anyway...SO...

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Kim a damn producer of Chyna and Rob show. *chucks remote*

  • jussaying

    black people don't look a "specific" way. I'm black and I get questioned damn near daily if I am Indian, Native American, Mexican, from the Carribeans, Ethiopian, Brazilian or otherwise from South America or just "foreign." Often times people speak random languages to me. So yes, it can be difficult to tell a black person from a Native American or identify ethnicity just by looking. Especially if it is dark outside.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Black are always the go to suspect for white women. When somebody kidnap their kids(even tho it be them who really just killed their kids ) they blame a Blackman when a Blackman don't wanna fck they say he rapped them even when there was no sexual contact white women just can't help but play victim and make a innocent Blackman a suspect. One day I hope these blackmen will boycott these white ass women

  • totally shocked

    Totally weird story

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Immmm native Americans were black prior to the major mixing white ppl did when they got over . The biggest lie aside from religion the whites told or tried to tell is making natives out to be any other color or race than black. It's so sad black ppl don't realize that the natives that were here in America were black their hair is different for many reason one reason being that they were rapped by the white folds that came and invaded this land

  • LibraGoddess

    Yep. First thing I thought when they didn't mention sexual assault or robbery was the husband set her up. The media always wants to focus on Black on Black crime or Black crime period, but I'm like, am I the only one watching these white murderers on ID? ?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Now now the real authentic Native Americans are black people. There's a reservation in long island and the ones that live there sound and look like black americans. In fact they consider and call themselves black. They all have deep dark smokey chocolate complexions with high cheek bones and long jet black hair.

  • Mister Fantastic

    Why these crazy white women always want to bring the black man into the fray? Bet she has a history of craziness that's why they came to this conclusion so fast.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Preach! Modern day so called natives are damn mutts. The real ones (black people) are still around getting ignored.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Tongans are black like the Aboriginals in Australia. I think we're so use to seeing one type of black, that we forget once upon a time we were all so called blacks and we all didn't look alike.

    thank you! I said this below. the African diaspora is really rich. I don't understand why people in America have this really confined image of what 'black' people look like. 'black' people have a million different ethnicities and 'black' isn't really a race as much as it is a 'culture' here in the States. there are a lot of different ethnicities with dark skin that are just homogenized and grouped into the 'black' identifier here in the States because it's easier that way. as far as I know [I never did ancestry.com lol], I am black - both parents are black - but I always get questioned on my ethnicity. if anything, it would show that this white lady isn't as ignorant as the general population in America is.

Like the ugly white girl in that horrible outfit getting mad because a brother (football player) didn't make her the center of attention. Out of all of the white men there she had to rant on the brother because she played herself in her thoughts that all black men want a white woman.

    I was thinking more along the lines of The Native Americans I've seen or grew up with, and my first thought was that this was just another person blaming a black man that doesn't exist, like Susan Smith did. I know Black folks all don't look a certain way. Some man thought my son's Nana was Mexican, and was talking s hit to her about Black people, and she's Black.A lot of Filipina's think my son's dad is Filipino, and the Orthodontist said my son's teeth/jaw were the way they are because he's Asian. My ex looked at the Dr. and said "Who in here is Asian?" People do the same thing to my friend as they do to you. She is Hispanic/Pr, and people think she's Black, Turkish, a Gypsy, and when she went to Turkey, everyone was speaking to her in their language. The other day she went to the ER and someone asked her if she was Muslim! She wasn't filling out forms or anything. He just asked her for no reason, and she told him she didn't feel that was any of his business, because it isn't. I think it's rude to ask people their race and to just ask if someone is Muslim for no reason other than nosiness is unacceptable.

    yeah the native americans that have popularized our medias and such are usually the ones whose genealogies have been mixed with the caucasian settlers. there are lots of different tribes that have really dark skin as well. darker than some black folks. it's just hard to say. that sucks about your friend i'm sure it's annoying. i know i find it annoying.
