Mother's Day marks tragic loss for Natick children


NATICK (FOX 25 / - Mother's Day is always a tough day for five siblings from Natick, who three years ago, found their mother stabbed to death in her bedroom on Mother's Day morning.

Stacey Burns was found murdered in her Wolfeboro, N.H., home on May 10, 2009, and police are still in search of her killer.

According to Burns' older brother, Michael Keane, investigators have focused on two men in his sister's life, her ex-husband Ed Burns and a Wolfeboro logger that she had recently broke up with named James Vittum.

Vittum had reportedly been at Burns' house the night before her children found her dead in her bedroom.

Keane told FOX 25 that his father was a police officer.  He is confident that the law enforcement officers working on the case are doing everything they can to locate the killer; however, he hopes an arrest is made before another Mother's Day passes.

Burns was an elementary school nurse.  The oldest of her five children are 19-year-old twins, and the youngest child is 10 years old.
