Checking through my manuscript of Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns, I found a minimum of six references to “Eddieland,” all of them directly attributed to Jim Vittum during the time he worked for Ed Burns on a logging operation and in personal contacts.

If I were Ed Burns or any of his family members, I’d be very interested in what Mr. Vittum had to say about “Eddieland” and would be especially interested in providing a rebuttal to what he had to say. This opportunity has been offered to Mr. Burns through any number of avenues, including registered letters.

So, to the Burns family, would you like to have a chance to respond? I am more than willing to tell your side of the “Eddieland” story, even if your attorney would rather not have you say anything.

As everyone knows, until something new develops, this book is going nowhere. However, I’d be very interested hearing the Burns’ family side of “Eddieland” which, as you may have guessed, is not very complimentary.
