WOLFEBORO — The Stacey Burns Memorial Scholarship 5K will be held Saturday, May 13, starting at 9 a.m. at the Carpenter School.
Proceeds from the walk-run will be used for a scholarship given in her name to a student pursuing a career in nursing. Burns was a nurse at Carpenter School, the local elementary school.
The event has been held since 2009 to honor the memory of Burns, whose 2009 Mother's Day murder shocked this close-knit community.
The mother of five, Burns, 41, was found stabbed to death in her bed on a Sunday morning. No one has ever been charged in connection with her death, despite extensive investigation by the New Hampshire State Police, who interviewed more than 50 people in the months after her death.
Her death is now listed as a cold case on the state's Department of Justice website.
The case drew national attention and was featured on ABC's 20-20 program on Jan. 21, 2011.
That show featured interviews with her former husband, Ed Burns, and former boyfriend, Jim Vittum, as well as close friends who were devastated by her loss and said that they believed her death was motivated by jealousy.
