Late Wednesday night, I sent a sample chapter plus a couple of pages of Murder in a Small Town: The Tragic Death of Stacey Burns to Mr. Jeffery Strelzin, homicide prosecutor for the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office. This contact was arranged through a friend in Wolfeboro, a contact for which I am very grateful. Mr. Strelzin recently told me that he is interested in any information that may help this case. As anyone following this blog knows, I have made offers to share my information with anyone in law enforcement, but this is the first time I’ve actually sent a portion of the book to anyone with the authority to actually do something.
The section (twenty pages of Chapter Thirteen – “Alibis” and a small portion of Chapter Fourteen- “The Means”) dealt with alibis of those most closely associated with Stacey in life, and eventually in her death as well. That chapter is the result of hours of interviews and research into this unspeakable crime. I am into my fifth year of attempting to write a clear narrative of Stacey’s life leading up to her murder and the subsequent investigation into her death. This effort has far exceeded my expectations and has become a daunting task for a number of reasons. My narrative remains incomplete and unsatisfactory because key people in the story have made the decision not to participate. While some friends and colleagues of Stacey’s have been quite forthcoming, others with key information have not.
I will be curious to hear Mr. Strelzin’s reaction. Hopefully, he will not decide that I could offer nothing new to the “active” investigation. That would be a sad day for me from many perspectives. Practically, the investment in time, travel, and money has been substantial since I began. Secondly, and most importantly, Stacey Burns does not need yet another person to place her memory in the past and move on. She needs and deserves an advocate. I still hold out hope that I could be that advocate.
The AG,S OFFICE is not interested for what ever reason. They do know who did this to Stacey and her familly. Instead contact the OFFICE of Senator Kelly Ayotte. She is most interested in this matter and why it is not settled. Our current Governor does not care either. Let’s take this to the voting booth.
Contact 20/20 again for a follow-up to their show.
“Mr. Strelzin recently told me that he is interested in any information , bla,bla, bla” ? I don’t think so. If Strelzin is investigating anything it’s ‘ how do we get democrats elected so we can keep this gravy train going.’ And all this talk about Kelly Ayotte, I don’t think so either. She WAS the one that let Stacey’s killer go. And abc,20/60 can’t do a follow up because they would have to say something about the kids, and can’t never do that…….no,no,no….every one should know by now Stacey’s mother, on her death bed, didn’t ” let him go” when it came to the kids.
JV I am not from the area but am trying to follow this case in the past month ,can you explain your last comment with regards to 20/20 Stacey’s Mother and the kids TU captjack
