This a follow-up to the last post in which I wondered what would happen if anyone even remotely involved in the Stacey Burns murder, whether family, friend, acquaintance, community member, or someone who is simply interested in seeing justice done showed up one day asking for an update on the case.

Today, I’m asking the question novelists often use to ignite their inspiration for writing a scene. The question? It’s simple. What if? What if this character said this or did this or didn’t say this or didn’t do this? Sometimes, the answer to the question sends the story in a surprising direction. So, here is my “what if?” question about both the Stacey Burns and the Bobbie Miller murders:

What if a 2019 Mothers’ Day march on Concord of all those mentioned in the first paragraph was organized to meet at the Attorney General’s office to ask Jeff Strelzin and perhaps a NHSP representative for answers about how the investigations into the two murders are proceeding? Might it send the story in a different direction?

It seems a simple question, given that ten years will have passed by that time. Wouldn’t it be nice if that march was cancelled because those murder cases were solved?

Just wondering (again!)

    I hope with the 10th anniversary coming up of Stacey Burns death, there is new light, and new investigations with people that may remember something, or say something that will bring this case justice.

    I have noticed that good people don’t protest, they have faith that good will overcome evil and they proceed accordingly. The kind of demonstration your talking would only produce more deception from justice and force the police to lie even more. Until Strelzin goes away Eddie the knife is safe in N.H. Now, having said that, a good old fashion leftist hate march demanding Strelzin go away would sure be fun to watch, bring on the libs.

    Jeff Strelzin has made over a million dollars since Stacey’s murder. Every detective that has worked on Stacey’s murder has also made over a million dollars. Ten years is a long time to NOT do your job and still get paid. Like i have said before, not a one of these guys,pussys really, could last a day in the woods, we only get paid for what we do.

    A 28 year old murder case was solved in the state of Washington. A young woman turned in evidence. A young woman who was raped and murdered, Mandy Stavik by Timothy Bass has finally been solved according to the Washington Post 12/18/18. A woman who turned in evidence had asked herself, ‘what if it was my daughter?’ I’m hoping that will happen, sooner rather than later,
    for Stacey. Good does overcome evil.

      ~ Eventually Stacey’s murder will be vindicated. Those who care need to BELIEVE and not give up HOPE.

  • Hampersnow says:

    I hope someone comes forward, and says something, remembers a thought or a detail that may solve this case…..
    Justice is coming Stacey.
