In my last post, I mentioned I would use this post to update readers on Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns. This will be a short post!
On April 6 of this year, I spoke with the detective who is currently working on the murder case of Stacey Burns about a tip I sent to the New Hampshire State Police in May of 2017. At the time I sent that tip to them, I thought it had some merit and thought for sure it should be followed up. (I still feel that way.) I was assured that attention had been paid to the information I supplied, although I have no concrete evidence to prove that.
Since writing the last sentence on the draft of that book, I’ve published three novels and an anthology of short stories and essays. Murder in a Small Town remains a story without an ending, unfortunately.
Once again, I’ll turn this over to any followers of this blog. Have any of you heard or seen any evidence of work being done on this heinous crime? That could come in the form of phone calls or visits with principals in the original investigation. It could be other followup for corroboration of details. If this blog is to be resurrected as an effective tool to create some progress on this case, we should know what, if anything, is being done currently.
Comments would be most welcome!
Keep up your good work. I’m lending you some of my patience to assist in your quest. May God continue to bless you.
Duke, I scrolled back a few posts and you mentioned you were trying to figure out if this blog was worth resurrecting. Just tossing a message out there thanking you for the time and effort you have spent on this and saying that for everyone of us that chimes in with a reply there are probably 200+ reading who dont. Have you considered trying to put this into podcast format? A lot of those true crime style podcasts seem to be popular now a days.
Hello. I stumbled upon this page purely by accident. I am relatively new to the Wolfeboro area, but I am deeply involved with a very old family of Wolfeboro. I am just curious… in your book, will you be covering the “rumors” of infidelity and possible corruption Stacey was mixed up in? The crime scene and investigation seemed to be botched worse than the Ramsey investigation years ago out west. And supposedly, that was done on purpose. No hard evidence of such, just rumors. In many people’s opinions, she knew too much and got too mouthy. She was seeing others besides poor Jim.
