Melissa Murphy is allergic to bee stings and was from Bénouville, Louisiana. Rory and Melissa were Girl Scouts together approximately eight years ago, when they were ten years old. Melissa went with Mrs. Fletcher, Rory, Jenny, Erin, and the other Girl Scouts on their excuse to Mrs. Haverty's property. During one Summer, Rory was determined to find an excuse to enter the grand and mysterious Magnolia Hall. She was partially successful because their leader Mrs. Fletcher was distracted by ensuring Melissa had an EpiPen on hand. Mrs. Fletcher was therefore unable to accompany Rory to the Hall, leaving Rory free to commence her explorations.
Melissa presumably still lives in Bénouville.
