Almost seven years ago, Stacey Burns was murdered in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
Some of my respondents to this blog have indicated that they were told, upon inquiry, that this case was none of their business.
When she was slaughtered on Mothers’ Day, 2009, Stacey was a vital part of the lives of many people in the community, not to mention her family.
I lived in Tuftonboro when she was murdered. I did not know her personally but she was a member of the Lakes Region community and an integral part of the school district in which I taught for sixteen years.
My question? Is it “none of my (our) business” that I(we) want this case closed after seven years?”
Here is my take on this. It is EVERYONE’S business when a wonderful, caring, human being is removed from this planet because a sick psychopath chooses to murder her.
It is the business of the community of Wolfeboro; it is the business of the family and friends of Stacey Burns; it is the business of law enforcement; it is the business of anyone connected with this horrible crime to demand it be resolved.
Please, do not sayit is none of our business. It absolutely and unequivocally is our business as human beings to prevent evil where possible and to see that evil is punished where possible.
Everything that happens in our circle of influence is our business. The murder of Stacey Burns is in that circle for many people. Don’t take the easy way out and say that it is “none of our business.”
Sorry for the rant but seven years is TOO long!
It is my understanding that homosides have no statue of limitations, and her brutal murderer is most likely still walking the streets, passing you going into the Post Office, behind you in line at the grocery store or RiteAid, going about his/her life smugly. The brutality speaks to the danger of this persons temper and state of sanity. I think the annual 5k run and blogs like this help HER from being forgotten. Im sure her family is very appreciative for the love and tenacity of the town. I remember that day well. On my way to my Mothers, who lives not far from Stacy, the sirens were like nothing I had ever heard in Wolfeboro. I was living in Portsmouth at the time, and Id never heard it here, either.
I agree, it’s everyone’s business. And it’s been unsolved too long.
It was Jeff Strelzin himself who told me this is none of my business and he is a man of few words and knows more about this case than anyone. So when the detective asked me last mo.”who does this” “who puts themselves in the middle of a murder case and stays there 7 years?” My answer “someone who cares” WAS a good answer? The reason I ask is because the second I used it, actually the millisecond I said that I had a red-faced well armed major crimes detective all up in my personal space and he was spitting all over me saying stuff like “you killed that girl” and “your a murderer” and “no one does this”. For the record he didn’t scare me, not even a little bit. When these guys are being friendly to me (talking hockey of avation.etc) their being real, but when they are forced (by their ag puppet masters) to turn on me and start lying, it’s just soooo obvious to me that I spit right back in their face and walk away. It’s my business alright, oh ya it is.
If you want to understand the ‘kind’ of people we are dealing with here in N.H. just google our proud govenor and her upstanding husband (tommy hassan) and start reading. Remenber; these are the people our state police are covering for. (sats something about our police too, at least their leaders.
