The last post aroused some curiosity about what might contained in the questions asked of law enforcement regarding the Stacey Burns murder. In this post, I’ll list a couple, which probably will only spark more curiosity. First, I’ll share a portion of the preface to the document I received which I believe is taken from the petition which began circulation last summer.
“There is still a killer amongst us. The famliy and friends of Stacey Keane Burns are infuriated over the lack of movement related to Stacey’s case. . .We need your support so that SUFFICIENT resources can be dedicated to solve this horrible crime! . . .At this point, there are minimal resources being devoted to Stacey’s case.”
Paraphrasing, here a few of the questions/comments . . .
Did the forensics (NHPD) “thoroughly” examine the video which explains Ed Burns’s presence in another location the night of the murder? (time tamp/date, background objects, shadows, clocks, wristwatch, interior windows, lighting, etc. Was the original retained, finger printed, copied, altered, and kept with authorities since May 10, 2009?
Were all cell phones belonging to the principal characters in this event completely examined? This means everyone from the victim, Stacey herself, to all in close proximity to the event as well other possible human connections to Stacey outside of the scene of the murder?
As mentioned in this blog before, so many questions like the above could be dismissed out of hand should those investigating the crime choose to do so. One has to have confidence that ALL proper procedures were in place and followed to the letter. Right? So, a yes or no answer would be easy. Right?
The document I’m referring to above, with its fifteen pages of similar questions and comments, is supposedly now in the hands of someone in authority in New Hampshire.
While we await the dreaded eighth anniversary (now just 80 days away) we can only hope that more than “minimal resources” are being applied to the solution of this crime.
Your tenacity is admirable. You need to have a counter part in NHPD. Someone on the inside, so to speak, that will push and work as diligently as you are to bring justice for Stacey. The question petition (the 15 pager) do you have any way to track it progress? The petition is an excellent idea. I sincerely hope it brings results!
The allocation of resources, the personnel assigned and the priority of solving the crime directly impacts the outcome. These decisions are made at the top. The author of that document is right to call into question the procedures that were followed but the actual investigators need support from the top to properly conduct a thorough investigation; did they receive this support? Was the possible connection to an illegal drug syndicate operating in the Wolfeboro area explored? What about the possible connection to the Roberta Miller murder? Was the FBI ever called in and if not why weren’t they? Far more questions than the authorities seem willing to answer.
I was there, the state of N.H. left no stone unturned, demossed and w/o shine. I remember a small time coke dealer going down as well as a “big” timer. (nothing to do w/ Loury) The results of those arrests expose a incompetence for sure but I’m tell’in you they tried. Another thing that stuck with me was Roland’s words to me after a long discussion on Ed’a alibi, he said, “proving Ed drove to N.H. that night doesn’t prove murder”. I have been on this almost 10 years now,I’m telling you,”this case has been solved” all that is lacking are the balls to try it. Don’t hold your breath, balls are in short supply once a case goes to justice. The cops aren’t the problem.
That is a tough nut to let go of -believing Ed committed Stacey’s murder. You seem like a smart guy. Hypothetically speaking pretend Ed didn’t do it. Then ask yourself who might have? What would be the motive? What type of character would be capable of murdering the mother of 5 children on mother’s day, leaving the children to find her? Not an EZ thing to do but try it. The results may surprise you.
Wayne man dude, there is no one else !! When I asked lead detective, Sargent. Steven Roland one week after the murder “is there anyone else?” his answer was “no”. I asked about Thor, his o’l lady, Stanley, his o’l lady, the perv cousin, the queers, I asked about the drug connections, Roland said it was him, meaning (ed) or you, meaning (me). I have had 8 years to think about it now and I still didn’t do it and that means he still did. The difference now is, I have excepted what Stacey told me. “He’s going to kill me and he will get away with it.” Pretty simple really. In other news, Chief Rondeau told me Ed was in jail now for multiple oui’s? that true? If so, N.H. won’t arrest him till he gets out.
