Factual Evidence in JonBenét Ramsey Case Forgotten

by Stacy Dittrich


I have been commentating on the JonBenét Ramsey case over the past week on radio and television stations from coast to coast, and there seems to be quite a misunderstanding regarding the "new" evidence that was presented in the case. The misunderstanding? That the evidence is new or even reliable.

Perhaps this was Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy's last-ditch effort to rid herself of the case once and for all. Since Lacy (pictured right) took office, it has been very apparent that this case was something she wanted no part of but conceded the parents needed to be looked at. Last week, Lacy issued a public letter exonerating John Ramsey of all suspicion in the murder investigation involving his daughter, JonBenét. Bad move, Mary.

The DA's logic when issuing this exoneration was that a newly developed form of DNA testing resulted in several skin cells on JonBenét's long johns matching a sample taken from her underwear at the time of the murder. Now, instead of having unknown DNA on one piece of the victim's clothing, the same DNA is on two.

Apparently, Lacy thought this was enough to disregard every other piece of evidence in the case. Imagine spilling out a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle on a table in front of you. Find two red pieces and match them together. Throw out the other 498 pieces and tell yourself, "I don't need to finish this, I know what it is, it's a picture of an apple!" When, in fact, the picture was a large, red, barn with horses out front. Mary Lacy is clearly not proficient in puzzle solving.

First, we must question how reliable the DNA testing that was recently performed is. It was done through a private lab and is fairly new. The FBI DNA database, CODIS, is compiled of DNA from local, state, and federal labs. As Atlanta District Attorney Eleanor Dixon pointed out, it is unknown if this could even be admissible in court.

Next, we have the initial DNA sample taken from the underwear at the time of JonBenét's murder. It was described by the Boulder DA's office as a significant blood sample. Not so, says forensic expert Dr. Henry Lee. The amount of the sample was so minute on the brand new underwear JonBenét was wearing, that it could have possibly come from the manufacturer itself. Did you take DNA samples from everyone at the manufacturing company, Mary?

The following is where I take the biggest issue. As we all know, the initial investigation into the murder was comparable to a street carnival. No sense of order or evidence preservation commenced in this "panic." Once the body of JonBenét was located by her father (pictured right), the body was handed off and touched by approximately three or four people before it was secured and evidence preserved. John and Patsy had two couples and their minister in the home by the time police arrived.

I'm curious. Did each and every one of these people submit DNA samples? Patsy admittedly pulled up JonBenét 's long johns prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

The DNA found in JonBenét's underwear only consisted of 9 DNA "markers." The FBI once used 13 to make comparisons. According to DNA expert Brent Turvy, 9 markers is enough nowadays. But comparing this small amount of markers to the new "spot DNA" is really pushing it.

As Mr. Turvy stated, "DNA alone is not going to tell you who committed the crime in a case like this." Are you listening, Mary Lacy? Has the District Attorney ever heard the term "totality of the evidence?"

Let's take a look at that evidence, shall we? I'll put it together in a simple timeline:

December 25, 1996 10:00 p.m. - John Ramsey is the last person in the family to see JonBenét alive. She was "on her bed."

December 26, 1996 05:52 a.m. - Patsy Ramsey wakes up, walks downstairs and finds a ransom note claiming to have kidnapped her daughter. The note claims she is being watched and not to call the police or JonBenét would be killed. Without hesitation, Patsy calls the police.

06:10 a.m. - The first officers from the Boulder Police Department arrive on scene. One of the first priorities in a missing child investigation is to search the house. They do not search the house at this point. Instead, they wait on a promised 10:00AM phone call from the kidnappers as stated in the ridiculous ransom note. They do, however, check the exterior of the residence and find it is completely locked, no signs of forced entry, and there are no footprints in the thin layer of snow and frost that covers the Ramsey lawn. An incredible feat for any experienced criminal to pull off.

01:00 p.m. - Officers in the home inform John Ramsey they are going to get a search warrant, and request that he check the inside of the home for JonBenét, and to see if any of JonBenéts clothing, toys, or items are missing. What does John do? He immediately heads to the basement, followed by his friends Fleet White and John Fernie.

(Apparently, JonBenét's bedroom slipped his mind. It also must have slipped the officers' minds to escort him to every room since it was becoming increasingly clear he or someone present was a "person of interest.")

01:03 p.m. - Fleet White comes screaming up the stairs for someone to call an ambulance while he goes to the back office to get on the phone (???). Female detective Linda Arndt ran to the basement door and sees John Ramsey running up the stairs holding the body of JonBenét. (No mention of what John Fernie was doing.)

John had found JonBenét in an obscure room off the basement underneath two blankets. In a monstrous house with a gazillion rooms in it I'd say that's damn good luck, John! (Now there's a guy that should play the lottery.)

Oh, did I mention he pulled off the tape that was covering her mouth? (evidence contamination #3,456) The autopsy report showed that JonBenét's pelvic area was most likely wiped off with a wash cloth as well. Did he do that too? (evidence contamination #3,457)

01:03 p.m. - John Ramsey lays JonBenét on the floor where she is moved by Det. Arndt and Patsy pulls up her long johns (contaminatecontaminatecontaminate).

Det. Arndt notes green garland wrapped in JonBenéts hair is most likely from the garland decoration wrapped around the staircase where the note was found. Funny, Patsy must have missed the shambled decorations on her way down to make pancakes—or write a ransom note.

Ah, the ransom note. Another key factor in the investigation. Granted, I'm not a profiler, but I've talked to enough barbaric child molesters to know that they wouldn't know what the word "attache'" means—let alone how to spell it.

I find it "off the beaten" path that a highly organized group of kidnappers seeking money would resort to low-grade child rape and murder. Or, on the flip side, a low-grade child rapist who has the "kahunas" to perform the rape and murder inside the home taking a high and probable risk of getting caught.

Most would be "out of their element" and transport the body to an outside location where they wouldn't be bothered. Most of whom wouldn't bother locking doors on their way out. Which leads me to my most prized theory:

JonBenét's body was hidden inside an obscure room underneath blankets where a "suspect" would assume she wouldn't be found. But, his plan fell through. Assuming law enforcement would be out of the home searching for the victim, would allow him plenty of time to grab his "stash" and go dump it somewhere. But when officers indicated they would search the house, the panicked "suspect" ran to his "stash" first. A likely scenario? Maybe.

The time of death is also a questioning factor. The autopsy showed rigor mortis in lower extremities and joints only, an effect that occurs five to eight hours after death. This would put JonBenét's death around the early morning hours.

Did Patsy Ramsey walk in on something? Giving all the benefit of the doubt, I contacted my most favorite and respected coroner's assistant. Since the body was in the basement, the cooler temperatures easily could have delayed the process. Still, it's another question.

The end result is that there are entirely too many unanswered questions in this case to exonerate anybody, especially John Ramsey. Whether his own hand was a factor or someone else's, I truly believe he has knowledge of what happened to his daughter.

If my child were brutally murdered, I couldn't comprehend flipping through the yellow pages four days later in search of a defense attorney. Actions and emotions are some of the largest factors of evidence in any investigation; something Mary Lacy clearly missed.

Oh, and the fact that the autopsy showed JonBenét had previous sexual trauma PRIOR to the night of her death is a clue. To exonerate a suspect in which the majority of evidence points to him is premature at best, and completely irresponsible at worst. Yes, there is always the possibility of an "intruder." But at this point, all of the options should have stayed open.

Now, Stacy, don't you know that if one piece doesn't fit, you can't convict? I mean, if you can't explain the existence of a couple particles of evidence, you are not required to unexplain the other 498, are you? ::laughs:;

I tend to agree with the theory that Patsy interrupted John amusing himself. I do not see her getting upset over bedwetting nor do I see John having to bash his daughters head in to control her.

Patsy once made a comment to the effect that if John had ever done anything to hurt her daughter, she would have bashed his head in. Well, I think she tried and missed. Then, to keep their social standings and the life they had achieved and the attention they loved (Patsy - the society women; John - the society women), they had to cooperate with each other and do damage control.

I am with you and I think 498 interlocking pieces are pretty darn convincing.

TxMichelle said...

It's funny. The first person I thought of in this case was the brother. I can see a mother and father behaving the way they did to protect their child. Especially in this instance when one is now dead.

Leah said...

Does the apology letter to the Ramsay's mean that they [he] can't be prosecuted? I have always believed the Ramsay's at least know what happened to their daughter, if they weren't involved. I can't believe ML has totally eliminated them as suspects. Not a very good prosecutor.

For The People said...

As a police officer, I can't imagine allowing any of those things to take place. I mean even a rookie would know basic crime scene preservation principles, but with supposed Detectives on scene? Come on, this story just gets more ridiculous by the second. Even if they finally prove he did it, his attorney will put that letter on in his defense. That was just dumb! BTW, I always enjoy your posts!

Rae said...

I'm curious - where exactly does the autopsy report indicate 'previous sexual trauma'? Because I've read it several times, and what I saw noted were the abrasions she suffered the night she died, as well as 'unremarkable' characteristics in the final summation. Or did I miss something?

David said...

Rae, the autopsy report lists such terms as "epithelial erosion," chronic inflammation" and several pediatric experts, including (but not limited to) Drs. John McCann, James Monteleone and David Jones said that JonBenet had classic signs of child abuse.

Levi said...

David is correct, it says "epithelial erosion" which means wearing away OVER TIME. She had both old and new injuries.

Rae said...

Thanks, David. :-)

Stacy Dittrich said...

Sorry for the late response all, I had a long day and this was the first chance to respond...

Pat, as always-you're awesome! I've always wondered if John didn't threaten Patsy and force her to write the note somehow...

txmichelle: I've never thought it possible for the brother to be involved; he was only nine years old at the time. I find it very unlikely that the Ramseys literally murdered their daughter to protect their son from accusations of ongoing sexual abuse..Now,John is another story...

Leah: Yes, they could always prosecute, but they'll have one hell of a time doing it after this letter was written. If I were a defense attorney I would wave it in the face of every juror...they'll have a tough time.

For The People: I hate to criticize fellow law enforcement but, unfortunately, Boulder PD really screwed this up...In their defense--they too believe there was no intruder and are probably livid at the letter issued by Mary Lacy. Added note-thanks for the compliment on my blogs! It is very appreciated!!! Always stay safe--

Levi said...

Stacy, I think the crime scene was staged. I think John Ramsey is the one responsible.

Take a look what was left at the crime scene. Bruke's swiss army knife, the garrote that belonged to Patsy Ramsey, a stun gun (the only thing that could possibly point to an intruder.) NOT to mention the ransom note.

Who else would have time to collect all of this stuff and use it for an evil act, and write a ransom note, and practice ransom note, unless it was someone familar with where all of the iteams can be found? A pedophile snatching someone from their room, wants to get in and out as fast as they can.

I think John Ramsey planted all of that stuff there, in hopes if he was ever arrested or suspected there would be evidence pointing Patsy, to Bruke, to an intruder.

It is kind of like a cross finger pointing if any of them are suspected, they hope there will be built in reasonable doubt, which is why the family was isolated.

I might be wrong, but the day after her body was discovered, didn't the Ramsey's fly to Atlana?

They also refused to take police polygraphs, but took "private" polygraphs which is complete BS. And they REFUSED to allow investigators question them.

If you want to be cleared, you OPEN UP to investigators, you FULLY and 100% cooperate so they can clear you and move on. That didn't happen here.

Stacy Dittrich said...

Levi,

I agree with you one hundred percent. As a mother to two daughers, one who is six-years old (the same age as JonBenet when she is murdered), I think about waking up and finding her brutally murdered and I could only assume that I would literally "shut down."

If I survived at all, I would not be flying across the country, nor would I be hiring a defense attorney...I simply wouldn't care about anything except my surviving daughter who would keep me breathing...

I think John Ramsey was molesting his daughter, Patsy woke up and caught him, he forced her to write the ransom note, and it went on from there...

Tragic, tragic, story....Did you know that John Ramsey is allegedly dating Natalie Holloway's mother? Sick, sick, sick,....

Levi said...

Hi Stacy, you could be right about Patsy writing the ransom note. She was never ruled out as the person who wrote it.

I think it was on Greta, I remember seeing Beth (Natalee's mom) saying she was dating him. And talking about how they have formed a bond.

I think the way they acted during each of their cases was different (granted the cases are different.) But John Ramsey lawyered up, refused to take a polygraph, didn't make himself available to the police.

Beth flew down to Aruba, STAYED for months, HOUNDED investigators, HOUNDED the press, and wanted this case solved.

While Beth flew to Aruba, where her daughter was IMO murdered, John Ramsey jumped on a plane and went to Atlanta AWAY from where the crime happened.

IF the Ramsey's are innocent (I think it was an inside job), John Ramsey has himself to blame for the police looking at them, because of their actions.

Leah said...

I think his relationship with Beth Holloway ended about a year ago. Whenever I have seen her she is very reluctant to talk about him and very careful about what she does say.

Anonymous said...

Hi Stacy,
Excellent article, but I do want to point out something. The defense attornies were not hired 4 days later....it was closer to 4 hours!

TxMichelle said...

Nine year olds do sexually molest other children, especially siblings and they are capable of murder.
Regardless, I said I first thought of him. I think because I can't see why Patsy would cover up for John. What could he use to force her to help cover up if she caught him messing with the daughter?
Is the whole losing your social status thing enough to make a mother help cover up the murder of her child? Possibly..
I can see a mother or father covering up for their child long before covering for a spouse who murdered the child that was her mini-me.

The fact that Patsy showered JonBonet with all of the lavish attentions is all the more reason to believe that an adolescent such as the brother would do something like this.

The only other problem with this arguement is that the attack was a vicious one. That is not the norm for adolescent sexual molestation.
If this particular time she raised a ruckus about the sexual attack it is possible he used whatever he could to shut her up.

Would that lead to parents covering for their child? Planting evidence. Writing a ransom note. Suddenly searchin and finding the body in an obscure area of the house.
I could definately see that.

Anyway. There are other things that I read about later which drew me away from that theory.
The most telling was the autopsy indicating that there was previous sexual molestation involving penetration(as others have stated). That points more towards an adult.

Anonymous said...

THERE WAS NO STUN GUN!!! This was just a theory put forth by Team Ramsey to promote the intruder theory-- they said the parents would not have to control their child with a stun gun. JonBenet had two abrasions on her neck which were noted as abrasions on the autopsy and are visible in the autopsy photo. Lou Smit, proclaimed they came from a stun gun because the marks sort of line up to a stun gun...however, Air Taser's President claimed a stun gun would never leave marks like this. Of course, no exhoneration was ever done to reexamine the marks. Anyway, THERE WAS NO STUN GUN, AND NO STUN GUN FOUND AT THE CRIOME SCENE. Team Ramsey people such as Jameson state this fiction as if it were fact-- and it is NOT true!!

BrotherMoon said...

There is no evidence that John Ramsey ever abused his daughter. There is no evidence after the death of JonBenet that he is a sexual pervert or a pedophile. However, there is plenty of evidence that Patsy Ramsey abused JonBenet in the preparation for the pageants. And there are anecdotes from other mothers in JB's school that Patsy abused and neglected JonBenet. These patterns of behavior can distinguish John from Patsy as far as the roles they played in the crime.

Anonymous said...

I personally think that they are innocent. But I know I am in the minority. I would not have cooperated with those police either. Or the FBI.

If John Ramsey were a child molester it would have come out by now. Another relative would have said something by now. If only just to get the fame of it. Child molesters NEVER have one victim.

And why is it sick exactly for John Ramsey to be dating Beth Holloway? Werent you just calling him a child molester? I think she is of the age of consent, and they have both lost children. John more than one.

That was really kind of a cheap shot and gossipy.

Leah said...

I don't believe John Ramsay is a child molester either and for all the reasons you stated Anonymous. Does anybody know anything about the "Santa Clause" that was at the Christmas Party. He was mentioned in one of the book I read. He is dead now but he was interviewed about JBR's death.

Levi said...

Why not cooperate, unless you have something to hide? Investigators always look to those closest to the victims first.

If you cooperate with the police, and make yourself available if you are innocent, you will most likely be cleared and they can move on and search for someone else.

Give me one good reason why the Ramsey family should not have cooperated and made themselves available for law enforcement?

TxMichelle said...

OH yeah Leah. I forgot about that. I saw that on some crime show. I want to say it was the same one with the expert who said it was an outsider.

Levi said...

"If John Ramsey was a child molester it would have come out by now."

There was a search warrant for multiple computers belonging to him. I know of one in Michigan. They were looking for child pornography. What was found was NOT released public. Some people might say he would have been arrested if they found child pornography on his computer, and we would have heard about it. But do you really trust the judgment of DA Mary Lacy? This is the same woman who is responsible for bringing a pedophile John Mark Karr back into the United States, even though it was obvious to anyone with a BRAIN that he was not and never was responsible for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.

Levi said...

Brother Moon, I disagree. There was old and new vaginal injuries. John Ramsey, as Stacy Dittrich reported in her post, when the police said they were coming with search warrants and wanted him to search the house, he immediately in that huge mansion went to the basement where JBR's bod was.

We know there was a warrant to search his computers for child porn, but we do not know what was found on the computer.

Maybe there was no child porn on the computer? Michael Jackson didn't have anything that could technically be called child porn, but he had a lot of books, and pictures and paintings of things that some would think is a little creepy. Such as a book with pictures of naked children, paintings with pictures of naked children etc. Some of the stuff belonging to Michael Jackson was stuff that NAMBLA (North American Man Boy Love Association) had featured on their website.

Maybe there was stuff like that found on John Ramsey's computer? We would know if that information was released.

Anonymous said...

Arndt told John to search the house. She did not tell him warrants were coming. At that time there were no warrants issued. Be careful with what you say Levi, know the facts, know the case. There was no stun gun in the house.

The vaginal injuries could have had any number of causes that had nothing to do with sex. And just because a female child was injured vaginally doesn't mean a male had to do the damage.

Between the two, it was Patsy that had the history of abuse as well as documented mental/emotional problems.

TxMichelle said...

That is a good point anon. It does not point to a man because there is damage.

Levi said...

Well you have to remember that fibers from a sweater belonging to John Ramsey were found in the brand new straight out of the package underwear JonBenet was wearing.

Anonymous said...

WOW - sweater fibers were found on a child that belonged to a parent? Better go get him now. Lock up the bastard. Because a fiber from a sweater couldnt easily transfer.

There was also DNA evidence from a STRANGER that matches the new touch evidence. You may not believe in touch evidence, but the fact that it matches the other DNA that was found in her panties is another story.

Levi said...

What is it that you do not understand about BRAND NEW straight out of the package underwear?

Anonymous said...

What is it you dont understand about how easy a sweater fiber could get on them? Did they jump on her or were they put on her? Maybe by her father or someone who had touched her father in the course of the evening.

cherry6905 said...

PUHlease! Patsy Ramsy did it,she wrote the ransom note and got John Ramsey to help cover up he may have even finished the killing. The Ramsey's are smarter than everyone else, they're elitists Maybe cause he was molesting her. What ever it was a bizarre family. Andrew Hodges book does a good job explaining ransom note.
My husband and I sat behind the Ramsey's at Annie Get Your Gun in NY. They were there with their publicist (promoting their new book). It was a weird experience. I felt bad for her as there were several blonde children in the show who reminded me of Jon Benet. Patsy Ramsey followed her husband out and then proceeded to reenact the play. She drew much attention to her self in that lobby. I had the distinct impression, "there's something wrong mentally with her." Her husband tried to act like he didn't know her. There's MORE to that story! What I don't understand is what is Beth Holloway doding dating him!?

Levi said...

What is the innocent explanation of it ending up in the CROTCH of her underwear?

Anonymous said...

It wasnt. You are mistaking the DNA that matches the touch DNA apparently.

And even if it were, taking a pair of underwear out of a package could very well put a sweater fiber on it.

You are fixated. Unnaturally so.

Maybe you should read up on this case, because even in this blog there is false information. Such as the prior sexual assaults.

Levi said...

Inside of JBR's underwear, in the crotch area there were sweater fibers from a sweater belonging to John Ramsey.

The underwear was STRAIGHT out of the package. BRAND NEW.

Anonymous said...

Apparently you have never taken a pair of underwear out of the package, or put them on for that matter.

If you had, you would know you have to actually touch them.

brothermoon said...

That's a great anecdote cherry6905.

Thanks, we need more of those. They show Patsy for what she was; nuts.

Pat Brown said...

Anonymous, I think the point Levi is making is that unless John himself dressed JonBenet, those fibers shouldn't have been there. She was wearing pants over them until she went to bed and Patsy Ramsey is supposedly the one to remove her pants and put on long johns, so John should have been no where near those underpants.

Anonymous said...

But Patsy could easily have had a sweater fiber from John on her was my point. Sweater fibers are pretty easy to transfer. Think black pants in the winter time.

Anonymous said...

I agree with an earlier poster that one valid scenario is that Patsy swung at John, he dodged, and she hit JonBenet. Here, you would have both parents having to cover.
Heres' another one. I would like to see this foreign dna compared to Jon Benet's. Has anyone ever considered that Jon Benet had a different father than John? John was 13 years older. John might have even suspected or known it. If this were true, then, maybe the real father was involved...a scene took place at the home or he was in the house, killed Jon Benet to hurt Patsy (for not leaving) so Patsy covered to protect the real news from getting out.

OpineOldie said...

It has been documented that JonBenet had grownups wipe her after going to the toilet. John's sweater fiber could have transferred onto the crotch of her panties during a wiping. Then, her panties pulled up.

I don't find the sweater fiber all that telling.

It is my opinion that Patsy Ramsey is responsible for the death of JonBenet. Her personality and histrionic behavior fits with my opinion. I do believe that John was aware of JonBenet's death and assisted in the staging.

Anonymous said...

Stacy,

In the fairness of justice, a lot of your comments about the alleged evidence in this case is totally false and misleading. I suggest you confirm your statements before you write a blog like this. When did you interview Henry Lee? He made that comment before the second spot of DNA was isolated. There is absolutely NO PROOF that any of John's fibers were found in her underwear. Surely you know that it is SOP for investigators to throw everything out and hope that something sticks. Even Kane when interviewed said "Every imaginable piece of evidence or anything that could have been construed as evidence could not be definitively tied to the Ramseys as being the murderer"

Levi -- stun gun in the home? I just cannot believe what has been stated here. There is absolutely NO EVIDENCE that shows there was prior sexual abuse.

I just want to let it be known -- that there are multiple statements made here that are just not true - and it just adds to the list of the media that reported so much misinformation it's no wonder that some of the public that has not followed this case believed the Ramseys killed their little girl.

Shame on you.

Anonymous said...

How can noted professionals like the women who publish this blog NOT TAKE THE TIME TO STUDY THE EVIDENCE?

Frankly, I don't care what your ultimate theory is...BUT PLEASE do your homework.

There is NO known evidence of fibers from John or Patsy Ramsey's clothing in her panties...

FleaStiff said...

"...Lacy issued a public letter exonerating John Ramsey of all suspicion in the murder investigation involving his daughter, JonBenét. Bad move, Mary. ..."
No. Overwhelming evidence of a police-orchestrated tabloid witchunt mandates a formal statement.

"... It was done through a private lab ..."
Many DNA tests are. Results are generally fast and reliable.

"... Did you take DNA samples from everyone at the manufacturing company, Mary? "
No, I doubt she bothered to sample all those Vietnamese workers. This is the only case in which male dna in a deceased female's underwear is so utterly dismissed from consideration.

"... No sense of order or evidence preservation commenced in this "panic."
The BPD did not panic, they were merely grossly incompetent.

"... John and Patsy had two couples and their minister in the home by the time police arrived. "
First arrival was a uniformed patrol officer.

"...Did each and every one of these people submit DNA samples?..."
Yes.
"... Patsy admittedly pulled up JonBenét 's long johns prior to the arrival of law enforcement. "
NO. Patsy Ramsey was restrained by the family friends and made no contact with the corpse.

"...The DNA found in JonBenét's underwear only consisted of 9 DNA "markers."
That was standard testing procedure at the time.

"...The note claims she is being watched and not to call the police or JonBenét would be killed. Without hesitation, Patsy calls the police. ..."
After having read only the first few lines, Patsy screamed, ran to check the bedroom and then dialed 911.

" One of the first priorities in a missing child investigation is to search the house.."
Perhaps. The BPD did not do that.
"...They do, however, check the exterior of the residence and find it is completely locked, no signs of forced entry, and there are no footprints in the thin layer of snow and frost that covers the Ramsey lawn...."
It was not completely locked at all. Examination of one door lock showed scratches thought to be old and that probably were old. The approach to the house via sidewalks and walkways would not have involved walking through any snow.

"..Officers in the home inform John Ramsey they are going to get a search warrant"
No, they didn't mention that to John Ramsey but the Ramseys had in no way impeded any of the searching that had been going on.

"request that he check the inside of the home for JonBenét, and to see if any of JonBenéts clothing, toys, or items are missing."
NO. No specific reason or purpose of the search was communicated to him.
The detective later admitted the sole purpose of the search request was to get Fleet White and John Ramsey out of her hair.
"... What does John do? He immediately heads to the basement, followed by his friends Fleet White and John Fernie. "
No, Fleet White and John Ramsey went to search as instructed by Linda Arndt. John Fernie did not.

"... since it was becoming increasingly clear he or someone present was a "person of interest."
No. There was no suspicion or reason to suspect anyone on the premises.

"...John had found JonBenét in an obscure room ..."
There was nothing obscure about the room or its location at all. The police photographer had already photographed the door to the room and another police officer had already noted the door but not opened it.
"... underneath two blankets...."
No. One blanket.

"...Oh, did I mention he pulled off the tape that was covering her mouth? "
It is unfortunate that he lacked a calm detached forensically aware affect at a time of such a stressful event.

"The autopsy report showed that JonBenét's pelvic area was most likely wiped off with a wash cloth as well."
No. Merely wiped. Not determined to have been with a washcloth.

"... where she is moved by Det. Arndt.."
Incredible incompetence.
" and Patsy pulls up her long johns ..."
No. Patsy was restrained by friends .

"...I find it "off the beaten" path that a highly organized group of kidnappers seeking money would resort to low-grade child rape and murder...."
Ofcourse. There is no Foreign Faction. The note appears to have been a rather whimsical means of creating more torment for the next morning's wait by the phone.

"...The end result is that there are entirely too many unanswered questions in this case to exonerate anybody, especially John Ramsey..."
Rogue dna from several separate sources all point to a non-Ramsey male.

"...If my child were brutally murdered, I couldn't comprehend flipping through the yellow pages four days later in search of a defense attorney..."
He didn't. His friend and civil attorney determined that a criminal attorney should be retained and handled the details.

"... the autopsy showed JonBenét had previous sexual trauma PRIOR to the night of her death is a clue..."
There was no such determination.

Fleastiff,

Read the actual police reports and search warrants...that should settle the matter....

Anonymous said...

FleaStiff is right. You need check your sources. Not everything you read is true. Nobody wants to believe that there is a creepy mystery man out there with the guts to break into a home and kill a child in the very same home without the parents suspecting anything, it's always easier to believe the wealthy, beautiful, successful, in other words, seemingly ideal and easy to be jealous of, family, was involved, but it was not the family. It was an unknown male.

Patsy would not cover up for John if she found him molesting their daughter.

I believe Patsy killed her daughter and I don't believe John was aware of that fact until he awoke the next morning or was awakened by Patsy.

There was mention by JonBenet of her "secret" meeting with Santa that night. That leads me to believe the murder was premeditated. I know how horrible that sounds, but I believe it was.

I don't think John was involved in the murder or the staging because if he had been, it would have been done better. It was a very clumsy staging. John didn't get to be where he was being stupid.

I might believe Patsy was covering for Burke if it weren't for that nutty ransom note, written on Patsy's notepad, with Patsy's pen. It's clear (at least to me) that Patsy was telling John a few things in that note ($118,000, "and hence," S.B.T.C., etc.).

Why did Patsy kill JonBenet? I do not know. That's what I'm trying to figure out.

There was NO stun gun! The marks were abrasions. Some thought they were made with Patsy Ramsey's rings.

Has there been a thorough investigation into the background of Mary Lacy. Was she ever involved with John Lacy or connected to the Church Minister and his wife. Also what is the story behind Carol Schueller Milner wanting to buy that house did she fear there may have been evidence there and wanted to cover it up. Did she get a kick out of living there a very sick person indeed I think not religious more satantic.

Patsy killed JonBenet deliberately.

Patsy killed JonBenet deliberately. No one else was involved. There was no staging for police. Everything that was done was done by Patsy for Patsy as part of a psychotic fantasy revolving around an imagined relationship with a supernatural being, the fear of judgement by that God and the fear of death. What people mistakingly take as staging for police had symbolic meaning known only to Patsy. This includes the ransom note. There were two aspects to what was done to the body: the ligatures were suspension devices, the body was posed and viewed and then taken down, placed in the small room, wrapped and the duct tape applied to set the kidapping scene up in Patsy's mind. The ransom note is full of the ideas that swirled in Patsy's mind that night and plagued her for many years.

The goal was not to kill JonBenet but to make an Angel out of her.

Patsy herself said after the funeral "JonBenet is in Heaven with God awaiting her mother's arrival and it won't be long." Patsy put JonBenet in that heaven to complete the fantasy and in her mind assure her life after death.

As the dedication in DOI says:

Wherever we go ...
Whatever we do ...
[We're gonna go through it together ...]

*BREAKING NEWS* DNA doesn't LIE - Religious Psychopath Child Killers Do! JonBenet Ramsey was Murdered by this MONSTER:
*R*O*B*E*R*T* *A*D*O*L*P*H* *E*N*Y*A*R*T* = *6*6*6* = *DAXIS* = *SON of SATAN*

*ShadowGov leader Bob Enyart is a Sadistic Serial Child-Killer in a "Small Foreign Faction" waiting for All Secrets to Be Revealed! The JonBenet Ransom Note was signed by the ShadowGov ~ "Victory! S.B.T.C"

*S.B.T.C* = *Strangle Bind Torture Children* & *S.B.T.C = *Shadowgov Breaks The Case* - Google "Bob Enyart JonBenet Ransom Note"

Enyart's ShadowGov = The "Small Foreign Faction" includes the following "group of individuals" from Denver who've been bound together for over twenty years: Master-mind Convicted Child-Abuser, Pastor Bob Enyart who wants to take over the country, Sheriff's Deputy & snuff-style horror novelist, Gordon Carroll, sodomite slaveboy Ex-US Marine & BEL Co-Host, Doug McBurney, who has a business called Bound Inc. Other criminal offenders such as Ken Scott & countless political assassins.

Bob Enyart is a closet fag who, among other things, is being sued by NPR because he's a thief in addition to being a twice divorced, twice convicted child abuser who's afraid of the police.....and his own DNA because Bob Enyart left it all over JonBenet Ramsey when he murdered her on Christmas 1996. Here's your social security number Bob 152-60-4382. You won't be needing it in prison, you'll get a new #. You're welcome, pastor.

There are at least 3 areas of matching DNA belonging to a white male, who we now know is ROBERT ADOLPH ENYART. The first 2 areas of DNA were identified immediately under her fingernails and in her underwear. The third area of DNA was identified in 2008 through a revolutionary DNA collection process called "Touch DNA." By this new evidence, the Boulder DA cleared the Ramseys. The DA said there is no innocent explanation for having matching DNA in 3 areas on JonBenet's person.

Linda Pugh said Patsy killed JonBenet, How does she know?

Anonymous said...

What reason did either parent have to murder her? None.

If you decide they were covering for their son, he would never have been allowed out of their sight. EVER.

Who had a key?

Who described Patsy's writing in detail?

Who had a reputation with the BPD for having problems with the law in MI?

Who said she refused to grant more interviews unless she got paid?

Who said JonBenet was a spoiled brat?

You need to watch this video of a defence lawyer and a police detective talking about police interviews. Don't ever talk to police without a lawyer.
