Ten suspects in the murder of Stacey Burns? This is a revised version of a post of over a year ago because of new information I’ve received over the last few months.
I spent some time yesterday looking back through notes from interviews, e-mails, and phone calls I’ve accumulated in the years since I started the “Murder in a Small Town” project. (2010) Here is one item of interest.
Ten people (or combinations) show up as named suspects by at least one interviewee. This means that at least ten people have identified to me who they believe the killer is. Obviously, some of these suspects get more than one “vote” from those I’ve interviewed.
I mention this only because I assume all ten of these “suspects” must also show up on the NHSP list of possibilities as well. It would be interesting to compare notes but I know that can’t happen as this is an active and ongoing investigation. For certain, I wouldn’t want to jeopardize that, but I’m guessing that the investigators have a shorter list. A comparison without revealing anyone’s name couldn’t hurt, could it?
Happy Independence Day tomorrow!
There’s one killer and I believe truly that law enforcement knows HIM but without the murder weapon it would be hard in there minds to get a conviction.
There is only one killer on a list of 10 suspects. Pity the other nine. What number might I be?
Telling Stacey’s children that there could be as many as 10 people, one being their own father that might have “slaughtered” their mother is perhaps the most irresponsible and cruelest thing I can imagine. Putting the burden on them, little kids to figure it out. Anyway, I’m still waiting to hear from the Governor.
I herd this quote today and I feel it applies to what Duke is doing, what Jim is doing and what most of the contributors are also doing:
Dietrich Bonhoeffer — ‘Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.’
I don’t always agree with Duke or Jim but I respect both of them for refusing to allow this evil to go unchecked.
We all know who has done this, sadly the rumors fly but the evidence doesn’t lie.
