As a novelist or short story writer, I am constantly in a “what if” mode. What if this character said this at this time? What if character A went this way instead of that and character B did know it? This could go on and on but I think you get the point.

Applying this mode to the case of the Stacey Burns murder , the what if’s provide for endless speculation. However, perhaps there is some value in raising a few of these as they relate to the conspiracy theories mention in posts of the last several weeks.

What if one person decided that he/she wanted Stacey dead but could only come up with one way to get away with it and that way was to involve a second person?
