DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE
TWENTIETH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
MARY I KEENAN. DISTRICf ATTORNEY
April 7, 2003
I have carefully reviewed the Order of United States District Court Judge Julie Carnes in the civil case of Wolf
v. John Ramsey and Patricia Ramsey. I agree with the Court's conclusion that "the weight of the evidence is more
consistent with a theory that an intruder murdered JonBenet than it is with a theory that Mrs. Ramsey did so."
Although issued in the context of a civil case, the Court's ruling is a thoughtful and well reasoned decision
based on the evidence that was presented by the parties in that case. It should be read in its entirety.
John and Patricia Ramsey have been the focus of an exhaustive investigation with regard to the murder of their
daughter, JonBenet, for more than six years. People charged with a crime are presumed to be innocent until
proven guilty in court. Since Mr. and Mrs. Ramsey have not even been charged, much leas convicted, they must be
presumed innocent and must be treated accordingly.
For several months, my office has been investigating new and other unpursued leads, most of which involve the
possibility that an intruder committed this crime. We are proceeding with the full cooperation of the Ramseys,
Detective Lou Smit, and the Boulder Police Department. We are all focused on the apprehension and successful
prosecution of the killer of JonBenet.
