Of course, everyone cares about bringing the murderer of Stacey Burns to justice. By the way, bringing someone to justice is such a tired and worn-out cliché that I can’t believe I just used it!
You know what is coming next in this logical sequence of events. If everyone cares, then each person reading this, or even hearing about it, is asking right now, a very simple question: What have I done to help make this happen?
I’ll begin with me, a very good place to start. I have NO standing; the police can ignore me; Stacey’s family can ignore me; her friends can wish I would go away; the community of Wolfeboro can wish the whole issue would go away; in plain and simple English, my efforts with this blog, with countless interviews, with multiple trips to New Hampshire from Arizona, with registered letters to important principles in the case, with newspaper interviews, and with attempts to involve the family in helping me–so far, all this has been meaningless because NOTHING has happened. However, I can honestly say that I have tried.
So, I ask any one of you- how have you aided in the quest to see that the killer of this special person is brought to justice? (Ugh- Let’s not consider it bringing someone to justice; let’s consider it in simpler terms: How have you aided in removing an evil entity from the peaceful society of Wolfeboro?)
Be annoyed with me if you wish. Call me out if you wish, but at least think about the question.
The thought has crossed my mind several times that the killer might be planning to “off” you just to shut you up!
Somebody should do it. Why not you?
When you get scorn and ridicule you have hit a nerve. When others pooh-pooh your efforts you again, hit a nerve. They (whoever they are) want you to go away. Be quiet. Stop poking around. Stop keeping this dirty deed alive.
Keep going, Duke. Keep up your relentless queries! Stacey remains in my prayers. Frequently I read of other murderers who are caught after twenty/thirty years. Justice, I firmly believe, prevails.
We all care. You care, and thank you for always caring Duke.
Justice is coming.
We won’t stop fighting for justice, and sometimes it may seem quiet, but things are moving, questions are being answered.
I’m so sorry for her loss of your son Duke.
Ed has been arraigned, Watch for court date. Very important to fill room in support of the guy he tried to kill. This is it, Stacey’s only chance to rest in peace.
Question for Jim. Please Sir… if you can answer calmly without going off on a senseless rage… why are you only focused on Ed being Stacey’s only possible murder suspect when your good friend and ali Duke has repeatedly pleaded with everyone who knew Stacey to at least CONSIDER other options than it being EITHER Y O U or Ed???
For DUKE… thanks so much for your persistence keeping Stacey’s memory alive. How about starting a new column /section/ page here where people can give ideas for her memorial and offer to volunteer in various ways. “LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS for Stacey’s Memorial.”
