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

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.

MONDAY, DEC. 30 UPDATE ON RAMSEY CASE

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION (4 P.M. mst):

The adult children were out of state at the time of the incident.

Boulder Police are extending their investigation at the Ramsey home, 755 15th St. in Boulder. There is a tremendous amount of material to
evaluate and it's taking more time than previously expected. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will be assisting in the forensic
examination of the evidence.

The CBI will also be handling the analysis of the non-testimonial evidence; the hair, blood and handwriting samples taken from friends and some
family members. Samples have been taken from the father and siblings. Some of the analysis may take weeks to complete.

Boulder Police have not detained anyone, nor have they identified any suspects at this time.

Police want to let neighbors know there is no cause for concern. There are police on duty in the area 24 hours a day. Boulder Police have
received a number of calls from around the country and if people have information they would like to provide to the police, they can call
CRIMESTOPPERS at 441-7867 or long distance to 1-800-444-3776.
