I've always been very vocal in my suspicion regarding the parents of murdered 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey. When the horrific murder occurred in 1996, I was young, but I vividly remember the newspaper headlines, TV reports and discussion about the case. But I never had an opinion one way or the other. I wasn't interested in news or true crime stories then.
Over the years, I've watched documentary after documentary, read many books on the case, and started to really research the case in 2006 when Patsy Ramsey passed away and John Mark Karr was arrested for the murder.
Karr was the weirdo, who was busted in Thailand while he was undergoing a sex change operation. Unfortunately for Karr, he didn't get to complete it, because he was arrested and forced to come back to the United States after a Journalism professor and vocal advocate for John and Patsy Ramsey, turned over email exchanges he had with Karr.
In the email exchanges Karr apparently confessed to murdering JonBenet Ramsey. He even described in detail how he fantasized of going to JonBenet's grave and having sex with her skeletal remains in her coffin.
Obviously he was a sick and twisted piece of crap. But it was obvious to anyone with a dose of common sense that he was a nut job who wanted to insert himself into the case. His ex wife, who most likely hates the freak, gave him an alibi and charges were dropped.
The Boulder DA made a complete fool of herself over the fiasco and it was evident that there was an attempt by Mary Lacey to throw red herrings out to the public to "clear" the Ramsey's. John Mark Karr was one of them.
And now, because of Lacey, that pedophile John Mark Karr who openly discusses his attraction to children, is in the United States walking free and trying to start a "JonBenet cult."But Karr wasn't the only red herring that Mary Lacey threw out to the public. Right before leaving office, she made a last ditch attempt to "clear" the Ramsey's. She claimed that DNA found in JonBenet's underwear proved there was an intruder.
The DNA that was found was a very small amount of DNA, the DNA wasn't found inside the home of JonBenet, and the DNA could have easily come from the factory workers who made the underwear JonBenet was wearing.
Because the underwear the child was wearing was brand new and came straight out of the package.
Now that Lacey is out of office, a new prosecutor has been assigned to the case, as well as a special task force. Hopefully we may see progress in the case.
Recently we learned the investigators had tried to speak to JonBenet's older brother Burke, by going to his college campus and giving him a card. Burke was 9 when his sister was killed, and is currently 23 years of age.
We've learned that Burke is refusing to cooperate and is not interested in answering questions about the case. Why?
The lawyer for the Ramsey family, Lin Wood, has even gone so far as to accuse investigators of harassment.
It is behavior like that, that make me question the innocence of the Ramsey family.The have treated law enforcement like enemies, when they are trying to do their job.
While I do not think that Burke Ramsey murdered JonBenet, I do think he may hold clues and it is important for law enforcement to talk to him again.
Remember the Ramsey family refused to cooperate with the police in 1996. They immediately hired lawyers and PR professionals. When they finally consented to be be questioned by the police, they refused to be questioned separately. Why?
John Ramsey: Why do you and your family continue to resist cooperating with the police? Why will your son not cooperate? Did you or your lawyer advise him not cooperate? Are you afraid of what Burke will say?
If you're innocent you should always cooperate with the police...
The Ramsey's have never acted as if they wanted to find out what happened to their daughter. They always seemed to be looking out for themselves, instead of the true victim JonBenet Ramsey.
