As a true crime neophyte, I’ve encountered major dilemmas on numerous occasions as I attempted to put together a truthful narrative about the murder of Stacey Burns. All of these had to do with conflicting stories from credible interviewees. Here’s my latest one, as of today.
A few weeks ago, I was informed that the Stacey Burns case had been declared a cold case, taking it out of the active investigation category. Now, according to an “authoritative” source, I’m told that the murder of Stacey Burns “is not a cold case, yet.” I guess the operative word in that statement is “yet” but it appears that previous posts about this cold case declaration should be placed on hold for now.
I’ll leave it to my readers to figure this out or to decide if it is even worth trying to figure out.
This poor woman had been dead for six and half years. Her memory deserves better than it is getting right now.
Does anyone out there agree?
I’d hate to be murdered for 6 + years, without finding out who did it. Of course, I would know, which would be doubling frustrating without a voice.
Thank you for asking questions Mr Southard. I have great respect for the members of the N.H. major crimes unit. Lying is a usefull tool in investigations and they use it very carefully and ONLY when nessassary.Every time (there have been several) that they have lied to me it was after I asked them a question. When detective Strong and his “young” partner told me last month Stacey’s case was “recently reclassified as a cold case” it wasn’t in response to a question. In other words they had no reason to lie. Questions are often first answered with a lie, it’s a good pathway to the truth. Keep asking.
