So that's where they get their scripts from!

Having reached the 30th anniversary of the murder a couple months ago, there's some interesting links online.

This one, 'Who Killed Tracey?' from Frederick Magazine seems to have the most info. And it's not all good. It seems there was so little done for sooooo many years in regards to DNA by investigators and they blamed it on money. We all know the drama with Don Barnes Jr. And I'd hate to think these people were just talking out of their asses in order to protect him. But it's gets harder and harder to not think of anything else.

Quote:
The department has resubmitted some evidence for DNA testing. “We are looking at the new wave of DNA testing and what is required for it,” Alcorn says. “[There are] limitations. The limitations of the testing. The case is 30 years old. A lot of the evidence has already been tested. We are starting to run into a situation where we don’t want to test something unless we know we are going to get the result we want back. When I say that, we don’t want to test something and then they come back and say, ‘Sorry. It’s inconclusive.’ We want some type of resolution to this case, whether, ‘Yes, this is the person’ or ‘No, this is not the person.’ We want to be able to send something down to the lab and say, ‘Yes, this belongs to this person’ or ‘No, it does not’ 100 percent rather than, ‘Oh, it’s inconclusive,’ because inconclusive doesn’t really help us with the investigation at all.”

Billy Kirkpatrick says his frustration with the case might have been felt by the previous detective on the case. “He told me the same thing,” he says. “No money. We have to wait until we get money so we can send something to the lab. That’s all they have done for the last 10 years is send stuff to the lab. Same old thing.” Thirty years is a long time to hear no one has been arrested for your daughter’s murder. “A lot of times you talk to them and nothing would have been done in a year or two years, and all of the sudden they send something to the lab,” he says. “… Nothing has been done but lab stuff.”
Also, a GoFundMe page has been set up by Frederick resident who wants to not only portray the case but to celebrate Tracey's life. He asked for and was granted permission by the Kirkpatrick family to do this project. Unfortunately, after three months, only $1,745 of the $15,000 goal has been collected.

Here's the link to the magazine article...

https://www.fredmag.com/who-killed-tracey/

And the link to the GoFundMe page. Please spread this link to as many people as possible to get the word out.

Rossetti wrote better ("Goblin Market"), but let's also remember that Kilpatrick was a teen and like most teens she confused the trite and morbid for the profound.

I always found it super creepy when they have some narrator (Woman or Man) read a note, poem, letter, etc.

This TK segment was both extremely sad & also somewhat creepy, re: the poem by Christina Rosetti.

Obviously, the person who called and "confessed" was a false lead. It sounds like a red herring, as we've seen in many of these cases. The guy sounded like a nutcase.

I don't have any ideas on who actually killed TK. It sounds like the security guard was a good suspect, but at the same time there is no real proof.

So the guy who contacted the psychic was just a local guy who had interest in the case, and was cleared by law enforcement (according to the text update on Prime). I did find an interesting tidbit on the Frederick Magazine article linked above by dynoguy:

Quote:
Tracey had been late coming home to Point of Rocks the night before, too. On that evening Billy drove up to Frederick thinking her car, which had been having mechanical issues, needed to be fixed. He found Tracey talking to a boy she had dated. The two decided to get back together that night. Her parents warned her to call them if she was going to be late.
Also:

Quote:
Instead, the murder investigation focused on two suspects, both of whom knew Tracey. Detectives who previously worked on the case believed there was enough circumstantial evidence for a grand jury indictment, but an actual conviction might have been elusive. To avoid a suspect being protected by double-jeopardy, the indictment was not pursued in order to give future investigators the opportunity to obtain more evidence.
This, coupled with an investigator's comment from a 1994 article about him believing her killer was a student who knew her from her high school, makes me think that her boyfriend is the other suspect. IMO, not enough attention has been paid to him, and the focus has been squarely on the security guard, Don Barnes.

Unless Tracy changed her mind in the span of a few days and decided not to get back together with this old boyfriend, then getting into an argument and knifing her (as was suggested during the 'Confession' Call) sounds a bit far fetched.

OTOH, if this old boyfriend had a reason/reasons for wanting her dead, he could've gotten back together with her as a ruse - in order to lure her into a false sense of security before he killed her (he could've showed up late one night, gotten her into the storeroom to make out/fool around & then stabbed her out of the blue).

Either way, it'll take either DNA evidence and/or someone with a guilty conscience to break this open I think

Looks like the documentary of Tracy will be released sometime in 2021, appropriately titled; "Into the Silent Land." It was funded largely thanks to donations from Tracy's former classmates.

There's a short trailer featured on it's official website where you hear quotes about politics and coverups. Looks like they'll be allowed a little more freedom to discuss the most obvious suspect, whereas Unsolved Mysteries had to withhold the fact that the security guard who "found" Tracy's body was named Don, who had a former roommate named Sean.

I'm extra curious to know if Don Barnes Jr.'s daughter will be interviewed.
