A long time friend ( now a former friend for fifteen years or so) once said this to me in a letter. “You just don’t get it, do you?” It doesn’t matter any more what he was referencing in that comment but he was right. I didn’t get it. In no particular order, here are just a few things about the Stacy Burns murder case which I also “don’t get.”
1. Why isn’t there some demand for a regular New Hampshire State Police update on the progress of this investigation? Logically, if the case is open and ongoing, as we’ve been told, then there must be something being done. What would be the harm in telling the public what is happening? I just don’t get it!
2. Why hasn’t a statement been made to stifle some of the rumors and speculation? How hard would it be to say a particular person is not a suspect if he/she has indeed been cleared? How hard would it be to say that the arrest and conviction of a former Wolfeboro Police Commissioner for drug trafficking in Illinois had nothing to do with this murder case? How hard would it be to say a grand jury did not feel there was sufficient evidence to indict someone for this murder? I just don’t get it.
3. Why isn’t there a media presence camped out on the doorstep on the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office, keeping this case alive for the general public, even sporadically? (And I don’t mean just on the anniversary of Stacey’s death.) I just don’t get it.
4. Why have at least a few people, central to the life of Stacey Burns, not been re-interviewed by the detectives who are still working on the case? I am aware that there might even be a few who have never been interviewed. (Well, at least one . . .) I just don’t get it.
Just few of “I just don’t get it” questions. Feel free to add your own if there are things about this case and this investigation that you don’t get!
The union leader and wmur news are in bed with the politicians in Concord, they cover what they are told to cover and the shut up when they are told to shut up. The AG’s office is accountable only to the governor, she could care less about Stacey Burns (she’s never heard of her). And the AG told me less then a year ago ” it’s none of your business”. I get it.
I don’t get how ‘we the people’ have become such cowards and just accept this as the norm. We could get answers, if enough people wanted them. It’s our fault Stacey will never get justice and Ed will get away with murder.We elect these selfish losers.
Here-here! I don’t get it either, especially since Concord, NH isn’t riddled with pressing crime issues. It’s as if they’ve all gone to sleep (sort of like SSA, Duke).
I try to live by the motto: If it’s to be, it’s up to me! I’ve noticed that whenever I stick my neck out, I become unpopular to one faction or another. Never fails.
Mr. Southard – I enjoy reading your posts and ponderings of what happened that Mother’s Day in May. It’s extremely sad that this case has not been solved. I do not know Stacey. But, I do believe that the “squeaky wheel” gets the oil…maybe calls/emails just need to be made to the offices involved in solving this case on a weekly or daily basis. If enough people who are “tied” to this case call/email in and inquire as to the status, you would think the offices involved would get tired of keeping tract/replying to all these inquiries and that they’d “solve” the matter so they calls/emails would stop. Maybe this is already being done. I don’t know. Lynn
It would take maybe 1 person with signs at a Hassan (governor) political rally. In big letters say: wolfeboro !! remember…. where the world fliped out over the “n” word but said not a word about the grammer school nurse “slaughtered” (Strelzin’s word, not mine) in her bed on mothersday morning ! or like that. If someone was NOT afraid of being noticed in this election year ? They could get national coverage And force the Governor to ask the AG, what,who, when ? Because I can tell you that the Governor of N.H. Maggy Hassan has never heard of Stacey Burns, she’s forgotten.
Why is it nobody contacts Bill O’Reilly, or Fox News, they have solved many a crime such as this!
