Ed Burns-Agent for Justice?
As if anyone needs a reminder, ten days from now, Stacey will have been gone for five years!
In keeping with a theme established several posts ago, here is another candidate for Stacey Burns’s agent for justice. Recall that agent for justice is a phrase used in my second novel to describe the character of Brad Wallace, a man obsessed with meting out justice to those who, in his mind, deserve it.
So far, I’ve mentioned the following as candidates for being an agent for justice to bring some peace to Stacey, her family, her friends, and her community: the N.H. State Police, the N.H. Attorney General’s Office, her family, her friends, and the killer himself (or herself).
Here’s another one, a man whom I would think would want to find the killer of his wife and the mother of his five children. I’m certain he must have been aggressively pursuing this case in the five years since Stacey’s murder, if for no other reason than for closure for his children. No doubt, he has questioned the police on a regular basis about the progress they are making in solving this case.
So, Mr. Burns, do you qualify as Stacey’s agent for justice? Surely, you are doing everything in your power to make sure the police stay on this case and that justice will be served.
What better time than now to make that long-awaited arrest as the fifth year anniversary of this vicious crime approaches?
