FINALIST-2015 NM/AZ BOOK AWARDS
Is the murder of Stacey Burns considered a cold case? This was yet another question asked at my presentation on the book project about the case. My answer was no, not officially. If I am mistaken and the case has been moved into that category, I (and many others) would like to know about it.
My understanding is that this murder remains in the “open-unsolved” realm, which means that it is still being actively investigated. As mentioned in a blog post well over a year ago, “actively investigated” is a phrase which I’d be interested in having defined by those doing the investigating.
Does it mean this case gets attention one day a week? one day a month? an hour per week? Does it mean the file is reexamined on a regular basis? Are people close to the case being interviewed again? Is there ANYTHING new to report? It’s been at least a couple of years since we first heard that an arrest was “imminent.”
One correspondent who did not want to be identified wrote in a personal e-mail several months ago that the investigation was very active but also very “hush-hush.” One can only hope that person is correct.
I’d love to hear from anyone who might have evidence that something is indeed happening with this case, even if it is a top- secret operation. I would be so happy to find out that the contention that nothing is being done is an erroneous one and that the psychopathic killer should be constantly looking his/her shoulder because the police are closing in.
Wolfeboro police chief Stuart Chase told me he “hasn’t spoken with the state police about Stacey’s case in years”, then he called in a back up to have me thrown out. Something is very wrong with something here. But, who cares? Can you believe how beautiful Bruce Jenner turned out! who knew? my childhood hero would one day agree it’s best to just cut em, off and move on.
