My writing environment includes a shelf directly in front of my eyes so that whenever I look up I am admonished by a half dozen or so clever and supposedly inspirational sayings staring back at me. One has been on my mind lately as I struggle with the lack of answers coming forth from questions I’ve raised about the Stacy Burns murder over the last three and half years.
Here is the unattributed quotation: “You can’t get the right answers if you’re asking the wrong questions.”
Perhaps this is my problem. Then again, maybe it isn’t the problem. What if the questions are the right ones but the answers to those questions would create problems for certain individuals, especially individuals who would rather the whole Stacey Burns case disappear. We all know there is at least one individual who would like to see the case vanish. However, beside the killer, I truly believe there are others who would like to be looking at this case in their rear view mirror, and not the mirror where objects are closer than they appear.
Just maybe a trial would bring out information which some folks would rather not see opened up for public scrutiny?
On the other hand, I may have been asking the wrong questions all along. I just know that almost a month after the fifth anniversary of Stacey’s death, the silence continues to be deafening.
I personally believe You have asked the right questions but it is more than likely they have fallen to deafened ears and closed eyes. The killer has all the answers and holds the cards as he plays with the people involved. More than likely someone else may be covering for the Killer as well, someone very close, someone who would be ruined by the truth.
Someone reading Your blog Duke knows the truth or is directly linked to the killer. JMHO
Keep going Duke….
I have a question; why won’t the N.H. state police return my calls ? I know the answer I just wanted everyone to know I can not get an appointment with anyone from Concord, either in the state police or the justice dept. They want me and this to “go away”. Now John boy; do YOU have any questions for me ?
About a year after Ed killed Stacey I wondered the same thing.My question at that time was “why don’t they arrest him?” I knew they knew he did it, so why don’t they do their job and put this physco away. That was when I started asking other questions. Who are these people in charge of our justice dept ? We have the best system in the world, why doesn’t it work? I found my answer! The system is only as good as the people in charge of working it. 3 cases stand out to me, Stacey’s, Rusty Beans and Theresa Reed’s. Do a 30 min review of the 35yr. old case of Russell Bean, this man went missing and w/in a year his wife married the police chief. If that doesn’t tell you anything then flash forward 10 years when Rusty’s body was found burried 20 ft down in the chief’s front yard. STILL NO CHARGES. Take 5 mins. and look at the Reed killing.Theresa Reed’s killer left Plymouth and went to Ma. Where he killed at least 2 more women, our N.H. justice dept said themselves they knew he was their man and he was, he admitted it as soon as they arrested him. We are to blame ! We have been so busy we have allowed our country from the top to the bottom to be led by the worst possible form of human life. UNACCOUNTABLE,UNCARING SCUM BAGS !!! When I suggested that they may have saved Mary lou Sales life if they had arrested Chris Conkey I was laughed at.
What I find concerning is the fact nationwide, people were more concerned about what Mr. Copeland had to say while in a private dining/table conversation, than the unsolved murder of Stacey Burns!! I don’t have a clue or thought who murdered Stacey, and don’t think it is right to accuse anyone of this act without positive proof, that is wrong. I do feel the family, friends and community need closure and truth.
I’ve seen it time and time again. When it comes to murder, law enforcement is just not there for the family, friends and towns people. Like when my niece was murdered in RI, the cops chose to say it was a suicide. Really??? How does a 23 year old tie herself up, put herself into a barrel and put herself to the bottom of a lake. And her car was found with grass and mud all on the underside of her vehicle. Then when another girl is found in the same area just a few months late and murdered the same way yet the law enforcement calls it a coincident!!! Don’t get me wrong, for the most part cops are great, it just blows my mind that they can’t solve the Stacey Burns case! I think I know who did and I’m sure the cops do too!!!
