Followers of this blog are aware that in early May, I sent an unsolicited “tip” regarding the murder of Stacey Burns to the NHSP Cold Case unit. This tip originated with an old friend from New Hampshire and contained what I thought was new information. It was my estimate that following up on that information would have required speaking to a minimum of seven people with additional contacts likely necessary based on those conversations. I was told by an authoritative source that “tipsters” are not informed of the results of investigations into their information so I did not, and do not, expect to hear from the NHSP.
However, since it is now well over two months, I’m feeling that enough time has passed that perhaps I should contact those seven people. I know that three were contacted but the others are of crucial importance in the context of the tip. If they have not been contacted by this time, I would be very disappointed. I surely do not want to interfere with the investigation but I will admit to being somewhat curious as are my friends who supplied the original information. In a comment to a previous post, someone suggested I contact these folks right away but I wanted to allow more time for the detectives who are actively working this case to investigate.
So, dear readers, is it time to see what has been done so far with this information?
