Within the last week, I’ve had some small degree of faith renewed that maybe the Stacey Burns murder has not been relegated to the bottom of the pile of case folders on some beleaguered state policeman’s desk.

A good source tells me that two New Hampshire State Police investigators actually travelled to Wolfeboro very recently for an interview with someone who may or may not have new information on the case.

Regardless of the outcome of this particular interview, can’t we all take some solace in two aspects of this. First, it is encouraging that someone new had the courage to step forward and actually say something, and secondly, that this person had enough to say that it would bring investigators from Concord.

Maybe, hope is not all lost.
