Now that we know for sure that Noel (Brant Daugherty), Jenna (Tammin Sursok), and Garrett (Yani Gellman) did not murder Maya on Pretty Little Liars, who is still left on the suspect list?
Keep in mind that we still have no proof that Maya’s (Bianca Lawson) murderer is on the “A” team, nor do we know whether or not the highly anticipated betrAyer is the same person who killed Maya. That said, we are only really focusing on who could have possibly killed Maya.
Here are the remaining suspects, in our opinion.
Paige (Lindsey Shaw). As we’ve previously discussed, Paige actually has a motive for wanting Maya dead. Her violent past combined with her jealous tendencies suggest she is both capable of murder, and could have thought the only way to get Emily (Shay Mitchell) for herself would be to remove Maya from her life.
Lucas (Brendan Robinson). We haven’t heard from Lucas in a while, but we know there’s a connection between “that night” when Emily was drugged and the Liars were photographed at the scene of Alison’s (Sasha Pieterse) grave robbery, and Lucas’ recent crazy behavior. With Lucas so far off the deep end, maybe he was a murdering pawn manipulated by someone with more serious reasons for killing Maya.
Jason (Drew Van Acker). One of the popular theories surrounding Maya’s death has to do with the possibility that she saw something she shouldn’t have. That “something” could easily be the NAT tapes that Jenna wants to get back so ferociously. With Garrett and Jenna off the suspect list, and Jason’s whereabouts unknown on the night Maya died, could Jason have acted alone in protecting the secrets hidden on the NAT club’s tapes?
Melissa (Torrey DeVitto). Remember how suspicious Melissa looks on that tape the Liars found on “A”’s computer? If Melissa is involved in the NAT club’s insidious nature (or Alison’s death), and Maya found out, Melissa might go on a murderous rampage. And, of course, Melissa was faking that whole pregnancy thing at the time.
Wren (Julian Morris). Can’t honestly think of one good reason why Wren would want to kill Maya, but hey, we don’t know where he was that night. Anything is possible in Rosewood.
Alison. Going back to the theory that Alison is still alive (and it’s her secret twin Courtney who was murdered), we could see Ali killing Maya. Either out of jealousy (remember those Ali/Emily shippers!), or because Maya found out about her, Ali is still a suspect.
Who do you think killed Maya?
