Murder as an extreme act-one of my favorite fictional characters is Inspector Harry Hole (pronounced Holy) in the series by Jo Nesbo. He’s been mentioned in this blog once before. He is always on target with his observations as so many fictional characters are. Here is what he says about murder which may or may not apply in the Stacey Burns case.
“Committing a murder is such an extreme act that many repress it. They can walk around with like a kind of half-forgotten nightmare. It’s when others say it out loud that they realize it is not just something that exists in their head. It did happen.”
Well, killer of Stacey Burns, are you able to repress it? Even six years and counting later?
