UPDATE ON HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION

Boulder Police are continuing their investigation of the death of six-year old JonBenet Ramsey
(DOB:8/6/90) which was reported
on Thursday, Dec. 26. Detective Commander John Eller provided the following chronology at a news
briefing on Friday, Dec. 27:

■ Police responded, on Dec. 26, to the home of John and Patsy Ramsey, 755 15th Street in Boulder
following a 9-1-1 call. The call,
from Patsy Ramsey, stated a note had been found indicating their daughter had been kidnapped.

■ Officers initiated an investigatory response to a possible kidnapping for ransom.

■ The Boulder and Denver offices of the FBI were requested to assist, as was the District Attorney's
Office.

■ The initial stages of the investigation were directed towards preparing to comply with the ransom
note instructions. Detectives
remained on the scene with the family. At approximately 2 p.m., a search of the family home produced
the body of the missing girl.

■ An autopsy was conducted on Friday, Dec. 27 and the Boulder Co. Coroner's Office has determined
the cause of death is
asphyxia due to strangulation. The manner of death is homicide.

■ The victim, JonBenet Ramsey, as a student at High Peaks elementary school, 3740 Martin Park Drive.
The parents are John
Ramsey, CEO and President of Access Graphics and Patsy Ramsey. There is an older brother who lives
at home and two adult
siblings who live outside the home.

Commander Eller added, "The family has been cooperative and our investigation is continuing. The
Boulder Police Department's
Victim Services Unit is coordinating crisis services with the Boulder County Mental Health Center and
school district officials.
Parents may call the Victim Services Unit at 441-3332 for information or assistance."

As of 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 27 no arrests have been made and there are no suspects. The investigation
is ongoing and updates will
be provided as new information becomes available.

UPDATE ON RAMSEY CASE

Boulder Police are continuing their investigation into the murder of 6 year old JonBenet Ramsey. They
are methodically searching
the principal crime scene, the family home. This is a large residence and the search is being conducted
in stages. This search has
required additional resources and Boulder County Sheriff Department investigators and crime scene
personnel are assisting.

Police anticipate it will take at least until Monday morning to complete the preliminary processing of
the family home.

Approximately 30 officers are working this case, including Sheriff department investigators as needed.
Additionally there are 2
workers from the Division of Social Services involved.

In a case like this it is understandable that people are anxious for a resolution, however it is important
for the police to carefully
investigate all leads and that sometimes means presenting a limited amount of information to the public
to protect the integrity of
the case. The family is cooperating with the investigation which is ongoing.

At this point we have not been advised of any public memorial service.

UPDATE ON RAMSEY CASE:
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 29

The body of JonBenet Ramsey has been released to the family and it's expected the body will be flown
to Atlanta for burial by the
family. The family will accompany the body to Atlanta. We believe this probably occurred today,
Sunday.

The family continues to cooperate with the police investigation, although police have not yet
conducted interviews with the father
and mother. They have been in no condition to be interviewed up to this point. There are a number of
people, including some family
members, who have provided lengthy interviews and non-testimonial evidence. The non-testimonial
evidence includes hair, blood
and handwriting samples.

Police are continuing their investigation of the Ramsey home, the principal crime scene. Police have
not ruled out any suspects.
There are no further details of the case which will be released at this time.

   I don't know if there is much use to posting these early indications of cooperation.
The view seems to be that the later 'lawyering up' is indicative of guilt rather than common sense despite the fact that anyone who did not 'lawyer up' in those circumstances would be a complete fool.

Even when they were 'in no condition to be interviewed' they still gave physical evidence.

All those later releases of records and repeated desire to meet with the BPD/DA don't seem to count for much once they were lawyered up. Well, those who lawyer up atleast have a chance to protest their innocence to the press without getting permission first. Those who fail to lawyer up are able to protest their innocence to the press only after obtaing permission from the warden.

   It blows me away how the standard for behavior is set so high for the Ramseys (especially Patsy). Answering all questions and signing all paperwork asked of them was not enough. Leaving Boulder to attend to their daughter's funeral was unacceptable. Going on CNN 8 days after the murder was "too early" or "not early enough" or "should never have happened". The fact that other parents have appeared on television soon after the murder of their child is totally forgotten. Patsy has a complete breakdown over the loss of her cherished daughter and it's a sign of guilt. No matter what she says, its criticized, dismissed as a lie, or charged as an indication of guilt. Constant pursuit of a continued investigation is a search for a lawsuit.

Posts that declare the poster is the ONE searching for justice for JonBenet, not the Ramseys. Topic threads that are PURE speculation, intuition, or opinions/theories are preferred over threads based on HARD FACTS.

UNBELIEVABLE.
