PLEASE NOTE: This is a repeat of a post from March of 2014. I thought it bears repeating since my recent post on “Eleven Suspects” was looked on with disdain from one particular respondent.
The numbers mentioned in this older post have increased in every case, but what truly matters is the fact that in five years since it was written, I’ve had at least four additional people provide information to me than change their minds about allowing its use. They join the group called “mind changers” in the first paragraph below.
From March 11, 2014 . . .
Since I began work on the Stacey Burns project, I have had four people (likely more) who said they wanted to provide information but then either told me I should not use what they said or they had second thoughts about speaking with me after the initial contact. This has happened fairly recently as well as over two years ago. These are the mind changers.
I sometimes wonder if these mind changers could have information which would be a game changer in the murder of Stacey Burns. Most of the general public believes there are only two “persons of interest” in this case. Some even believe there is only one. What if there are more? What if, on some lists, there are six? What if any one of these mind changers has information that would rule out one or more of these six? Clearly, the police have eliminated some of the six, maybe even five of the six.
New information could inspire new ideas or it could substantiate the old. However, if it is never mentioned, it will do neither, leaving the evasive truth to languish in limbo. So, mind changers, if you have something new, let’s hear it. Otherwise, we’ll never know if could be a game changer.
