JonBenet Ramsey Case: Killer Died in June (OT)

"Aug. 17, 2006 — In some ways, the long-awaited possible big break in the 10-year-old case of the murder of JonBenet Ramsey seemed a little too easy..."

You think?

I know this has little to do with publishing, but I have to put it out there. I'd bet money this guy did not kill that little girl. He's confessing like the only reason he never said anything before is because no one asked, or something. Give me a the case. A real one this time.

In my humble opinion, JonBenet's killer met her fate in June. Read on. The mother was a "pageant mom", and we all know how that goes....little JonBenet doesn't look too happy in some of that pageant footage they show of her; having to be all glammed up, prancing around on those stages - she looks like she's forcing it. And there were too many oddities in the case. Ransom note written for three pages on pad and paper IN THE HOUSE. Cops don't find body, FATHER just HAPPENS to be the one to stumble upon it in THEIR BASEMENT....uh-huh.

I still think her mother probably lost her temper and the husband helped cover it up. That's what the info pointed to nearly ten years ago, and that's what it still points to now. Patsy Ramsey's phony TV appearances rang about as true as Susan Smith's.

"ATLANTA-- Patsy Ramsey, whose 6-year-old daughter JonBenet's 1996 slaying has never been solved, died Saturday of cancer, her lawyer said. She was 49.

Ramsey had been battling ovarian cancer since 1993 and had suffered a recurrence three years ago, attorney L. Lin Wood said. Her husband, John, was with her at the time of her death.

JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in her parents' Boulder, Colo. basement on Dec. 26, 1996. A grand jury investigation ended with no indictments, and no arrests have been made. The Ramseys said an intruder killed their daughter but a cloud of suspicion hung over the couple. The district attorney and a federal judge in Colorado have said it is likelier that an intruder was responsible.

JonBenet's death became fodder for tabloids and the subject of books.

"I think people realize now that this family was very much victims of that murder and have suffered greatly because of it in terms of the false accusations made against them," Wood told CNN Saturday.

Patsy Ramsey said she found a ransom note on the back staircase of the family's home demanding $118,000 for the safe return of JonBenet. John Ramsey said he found his daughter's body in a basement room, wrapped in a white blanket eight hours later.

A white rope was wrapped around her neck and a wrist and tied to a stick. A red-ink heart was drawn on her left palm, and Ramsey told police he removed duct tape from the child's mouth before carrying her body upstairs.

An autopsy concluded JonBenet suffered a skull fracture, and was strangled and beaten.

The Ramseys left Colorado and had residences in Atlanta and in Michigan, where John Ramsey unsuccessfully ran for a state House seat in 2004."

RIP JonBenet. Only you know who murdered you and why. I think it was your mother.
