As despicable as Ed Burns is - he did not do this , the killer still walks around Wolfeboro enjoying "his celebrity" - he is sickening. Both of them are - Mr.Vittum tried to insinuate himself into the investigation insinuating the clunkhead police are hanging on his every word, brags about failing the lie dectector, brags that he is "right in the middle of it" as if he is enjoying his newfound 15 minutes of fame for something brave and courageous instead of murduring an innocent woman in her sleep just because this sick piece of pond scum cant stand rejection and his crowning achievement leaving her body for her children to find. They have sent men to prison for life with no body and no murder weapon but there they sit - wonder what states those murders occurred? New Hampshire has a lamby-pamby,nervous cat scared of it's own tail apparently scared of Jim Vittum. Mr. Vittum must be living large these days - in his own pinhead mind - he is a celebrity and so sick and twisted that his "celebrity" comes at the cost of human life, Stacey's blood on his hands, he can spend the rest of his life "washing his hands" but her blood will still be there - on his hands - and the daily hell her five precious children now live - this is their "new life" Congratulations Jim! Enjoy every minute brother - Karma is a mother.

Sherlock, couple of thngs, I agree with you and also have difficulty reading blogs to the contrary. Seems there's a small and loud band in town that wants to keep focus on Ed Burns. They just can't get passed the police work and the never ending scenarios how and why Ed must have done this. It's terrible as the older Burns kids hear all this. Wonder who's behind all that? This Burns family had been through some ugly divorce proceedings, with both "adults", I believe, in altered state of mind by different addictions, which enabled crazy stories. None respectible, offensive to say the least, as sometimes these things go. But it seemed, over time, they cooled and worked out a program after almost 2 years and thankfully for the kids sake had a mostly amicable situation with shared custody.
This blogger band that are just imagining how the crime played out - on line for all to see - assuming they know what came of this once happy but gone sour couple. This is not an extraordinary situation, it does happen all the time. Couple gets ugly, heats up, 5 kids in the middle. Nothing easy about it. But to say that he's the killer, and to drag this on, the kids hear it, and truly they are just obnoxiously blinded and hurting the family more.
I have always thought the interview Jim V did, certainly contained a healthy dose of self incrimination. He never (in a million years) had it so good as he did with Stacy. I wish she had made better decisions,but she did not have an easy life either and can't blame her. Just miss her a lot.
I just can't stop thinking about Stacy's last moments. She would only want the best for her babies, and this harmful blogger band is not helping. Nor is it aiding the solution of the crime in any way either.

I wish Stacey had made better decisions too but until you are in the situation ourselves, I dont think any of us know what we would do. This is the first blog I have ever commented on - I think part of it is just a healthy outlet for heartbroken people who have been pushed to their limit,some people are still shocked and cant believe that this happened to this lovely woman. And I would hope there is a healthy dose of people who are outraged at the sheer madness and cruelty Ed Burns has been allowed to get away with including cruelty to his own children that New Hampshire's version of Child Protective Services consider "healthy behaviour and the children can safely live with this man" - a man who shoves a gun in his mother's face in front of this children it doesnt seem to me that these poor children can read anything that they have not already "lived". Because they have certainly tied the hands of Stacey's family in doing anything to help the children. Stacey's mother is 74 years old, I dont know how she is making it through this except the same love and strength that Stacey was made of must have been inherited from her Mother.Because you can be damned sure that New Hampshire is just fine with the present arrangements for these precious children.

To luvfreshair

My guess is you are a concerned Burns family member. After all that has happened to these poor children at the hand of their father, HOW can you stand by and allow him to pretend he can handle being their father. Ed's mother stands by him, lies for him all the while knowing what he is doing to her grandchildren. There is no excuse for allowing the physical and emotional abuse of these five children to continue. Stop the cycle of violence that unfortunately your family was subjected to and take a stand for the Burns children. You say you miss Stacey and imagine her last thoughts would have been concern for her children. If that is true, HOW can you stand by Ed any longer???

Your guessing out loud is irritating since you are so off base with reality. The kids are doing so well. You are apparently distant from what's really going on and you are not helping the family whatsoever. The girls are thriving and tell teachers and relatives that they are so happy and feel safe and loved. Ed doesn't pretend to be their father, he is their father. Which is not an easy task at this point in their lives. There is no physical nor emotional abuse as you say. The state is very involved, in the house by Burns family request and seeing/aiding with the recovery of the children. They are with their Dad and Grandmother because they are doing a good job of getting them cared for. The children's hearts are full with loving care by the Familys of the Keane's and Burns' and so many generous and loving friends in the town of Wolfeboro.
They are not poor children, they are rich, resilient, and fabulous individuals working hard to get through this year with some sense of success. The state sees that there is no one better suited for their guidance through this, they are where they belong- with their Dad and grandmother.
Not sure there are many perfect parents of teenagers. And caring for 5 children that have had some rough few years in their short little lives, is an undertaking. You are not in touch. You have just guessed badly on blogs for almost a year now, damaging spirits, and part of a negative ineffectiveand inacurate rumor mill. If that's what you want to do with your time, it's your perrogative.
