In what has been written in Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns thus far, I make what I believe is a fairly strong case for there being no such thing a degree of truth. Truth exists in its own realm without shadings. So, the answer to the question in the title of this blog is easy to discern. The truth is always repetitious because it does not change. What changes is the perception of truth. For example, the truth is that well over four years ago, a woman in the prime of her life was savagely attacked and murdered. However, the rumors, innuendoes, gossip, misinformation and lack of official information have changed the perception of that truth in the minds of many people, simply because so much time has passed. Human nature would have it no other way.
My offer to explain what I’ve been doing on Murder in a Small Town . . . still stands. I’ve heard from one library which has a full schedule for September 27-30. I’ve not heard from the other four area libraries I contacted.
check with the Moultonborough Library Duke…try to talk with Jane Rice if you can get her on the phone. 603-476-8895. i sure hope you make it.
