Lisa Gardner, one of my favorite crime storytellers, has this line in her short novel, The Fourth Man.
“It’s amazing what you can discover, even in a cold case, with a talented detective.” It is a quote about the redoubtable detective, D.D. Warren.
This leads to my oft-stated question regarding the Stacey Burns murder. Whether it is officially a cold case, or what some in the official world are calling “open, unsolved” my question is simple. Is it still being worked, and if so, with what level of intensity? Now, inspired by Lisa Gardner, we could add another question. Do the detectives fit into the “talented” category? If so, might we be amazed what they are discovering about this murder from nine years and almost three months after the fact?
Just wondering . . .
