The killer of Stacy Burns remains free six plus years after her murder. Bobbie Miller’s murderer remains free after almost as long a time.
I sometimes wonder if anyone is embarrassed by these facts. For a while in my early days of a long teaching career, I worked at a Ford agency selling cars during the summer. The sales staff had a daily morning meeting to report our progress to the sale manager. I remember well the embarrassment of announcing to the staff the lack of any sales the day before. If the negative reports stretched out to four or five days, that embarrassment and the pressure to perform increased proportionately.
I wonder if the detectives assigned to and “working” on the two cases mentioned above report on their progress to their superiors on a regular basis. If so, what are they saying? If not, why not? I wonder if there is any embarrassment at the fact that these cases are still “Open, unsolved” after all this time. My sales manager back in the old days would not want to hear about possible customers. “I want these deals closed!” would be the more likely reaction.
The lives or Stacey Burns and Bobbie Miller cannot be compared to car deals, but the family and friends of these two women surely are entitled to have these cases closed. If not, than maybe an explanation of why they are not closed might be in order.
I doubt very much, Duke, if you will ever see an explanation of ‘WHY’, whether or not either case is ever solved. I have noticed a callused scab of uncaring indifference in a good share of the American population in the past couple of decades, mostly in the 30 and younger crowd. Nothing is the same as when you and I were young men. I think the closest depiction of a lifestyle we understand would be found in the Military. Even that has changed drastically since I was in the Navy. Back in the 40s and 50s if someone had the audacity to spit or walk on the colors (U.S. Flag) the general public would have run them out of town on a rail after being covered with tar and chicken feathers. Sometimes I am actually embarrassed to see the total disregard people have for authority. I lay a lot of the blame on the microchip, which has changed the world.
There is no accountability. No one is embarrassed, they would have to care.
I’m embarrassed for our State and our town! The reason crimes like this go unsolved today is that we, the public, have too much information. It used to be killers ALWAYS slipped up. Now with all the programs even I have watched, there’s a lot of things I wouldn’t do wrong today that I would have in the past if I were a killer. CSI, which I used to love to watch, NCIS, etc.,etc., etc. The internet. You can look up ANYTHING and chances are there are how to videos & text of all the things you’d need to be successful at getting away with murder. It’s VERY sad really! There should be justice for Stacey & Bobby & any others that have their cases unsolved. My 2 cents!
