A correspondent posted a response to my last entry. It can be seen on my website under “A Plethora of Suspects” and I wrote this response which I’d like to receive wider distribution. So, here is my response.

First of all, anyone who knows me knows that selling books about this crime is NOT a motive for keeping it going. As stated on numerous occasions and venues, any profits would go to the Burns children. I would say that it is highly unlikely “Murder in a Small Town” will ever be published.
Second, is everyone willing to wait for those “who are afraid to talk” or for the “psychopath killer” to take responsibility? If that is the case, I apologize for “muddying the waters.”
What are the odds that the murder weapon will be found after seven years and seven months?
So, I’d love to hear from others about my muddying the waters. What do the rest of you think?
