For those wondering about the status of investigation into the tip i submitted to the NHSP in early May . . .
Of the seven people I thought would be interviewed based on that information, I can only confirm that three have been spoken to by police. One
additional “peripheral” person outside of the seven was interviewed based on info given by one of those three.
I do get regular reminders from various sources that I don’t know how real police investigations work. I’m just an ordinary citizen and perhaps I should wait and see what happens. I’ll confess to being a bit leery of upsetting the process the police claim they are following by being more aggressive with the folks mentioned in the infamous tip. I do not want to be blamed for alerting a possible “person of interest” before the police are ready for them to be alerted.
It is the familiar Catch 22. I feel as if I should be doing more, but by doing more, I might interfere with the police doing the investigation.
I feel the frustration way out here in torrid Arizona. I can’t imagine the frustration of Stacey’s friends and family who are faced with memories every day.
Almost three months into the ninth year since she was murdered . . .
I don’t know how “real” police investigations work either, but I do know that once Stacey’s name appeared on the cold case list, it was OVER. Stacey’s killer got away with it. IT’S OVER. Congratulations to the investigators for never being held accountable and congratulations to Ed.
Jim can you give me a call the new guy on the block who is trying to connect the dots !
