Part 2: Colorado reporter suing to make secret indictment of JonBenet Ramsey’s parents public

Judge Orders DA To Show Why Secret Indictment Of Parents Should Remain Secret

JonBenet Ramsey Update: Judge orders release of indictment in unsolved murder of 6-year-old Colo. girl

(CBS/AP) BOULDER, Colo. - A Colorado judge has ordered the release of the 1999 grand jury indictment in the killing of 6-year-old

The order was issued Wednesday by Senior District Court Judge J. Robert Lowenbach. He ruled that the indictment signed by the grand jury foreman constituted an official action and must be released under state law.

The Daily Camera reports the indictment will be released Friday in response to a lawsuit filed by a Daily Camera reporter and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

The indictment has remained sealed for 14 years because the former district attorney decided against pursuing charges. But questions still surround the little girl's unsolved death.

John Ramsey, father of JonBenet, said earlier this week he was opposed to the release of an indictment that wasn't prosecuted. His attorney said in a letter sent to Boulder District Attorney that the document "only serves to further defame (John Ramsey) and his late wife Patricia."

Ramseys attorneys also argue the public won't be able to evaluate the propriety of the indictment unless the entire grand jury record is unsealed.

JonBenet's body was found bludgeoned and strangled in her family's home in Boulder on Dec. 26, 1996. Former District Attorney Mary Lacy said in 2008 that evidence suggests the killer was a stranger, not a family member.

Sounds like this could get interesting....

by Anonymousreply 810/23/2013

CNN is exhibiting 4 pages, each of which were signed by the jury foreman at one point. I don't think they are releasing any of the other pages, which is what John Ramsey wanted them to do.

Does this imply they allowed someone else to abuse Jon Benet? Since the DNA was from an outsider?

Unleash the lawyers...

If the prosecutor declined to prosecute even though there was a grand jury indictment, (payoff?) does double jeopardy attach in any way? There was no trial on the merits so nobody's due process rights are in jeopardy, correct? I mean, could they still decide to go forward with a prosecution all these years later? There is no statute of limitations on murder.

The *only* situation in which double jeopardy applies is if a complete trial has taken place, and a judge or jury has found the defendant not guilty. This is why, for instance, a second trial after the judge declares a mistrial during the first doesn't count as double jeopardy.

I went to Jon Benet's grave with a crazy friend who visits every year with her mother on the anniversary of the murder.

She is buried right next to her mother and the entire cemetery is a pretty small space, located near a very large cemetery, which makes it confusing to locate. I don't think there was much extra room for John and/or Burke there...just the Ramsey girls.

It is surrounded by an iron fence, making it impossible for nutty lookyloos like us to get next to it. There were metallic pinwheels decorating Jon Benet's grave, spinning in the wind.

The cemetery is located just a few blocks from the Marietta Square.

Cut it out. No murderer, sit's down in the location of the murder and writes a two page ransom note. The murderer knows, the kid is dead. It's a ridiculous idea. The note was written so they would have some excuse for their missing daughter. I'm fairly sure they didn't really think the police would look for the child in the house, AFTER ALL, SHE WAS SUPPOSEDLY KIDNAPPED! So why would the police look through the house?

The answer is so obvious it's absurd that all these years later, people act as if they still wonder about the truth, the truth could not be more obvious.

Could John convince Patsy to help him or was Patsy really in the dark? That I don't know.

Of course Patsy was never ruled out as the person who wrote the note but could John have written the note, trying to copy Patsy's handwriting? I'm sure John is a clever man, as long as it didn't look like his own hand writing, it didn't matter if it resembled Patsy's...who would believe Patsy would have a part in her daughter's disappearance? After all, John thought he could get rid of the body at a later time, he didn't know the cops would search his house. He thought the ransom note would send them off in a different direction.

The focus needs to be: corruption in the Boulder D.A.

by Anonymousreply 4310/25/2013

It's broader than corruption in the Boulder DA office. Boulder prides itself on being a perfect community. The murder of a 6 year old created massive cognitive dissonance for both city officials and residents. Their denial led to the decisions that has bungled the case from Day One.

Listen to the city officials talk about the recent flood. It's mostly this rah-rah 'our infrastructure held up, etc..' Meanwhile, poor Boulderites who live in trailer parks lost everything.

A couple of years ago, the city hired a research firm to do a quality of life survey by phone. The firm, with the city's approval, decided to not offer the survey in Spanish. Of course, most of Boulder's poorest, neglected citizens speak Spanish. Hence the survey results proved that Boulder remains a GREAT place to live.

R61 There were signs that something was being done to him. You had Patsy's mother announcing the size of his penis in public, his regression in toilet training (both bedwetting and shitting himself) and his weird obsession with sex (he'd been caught a few times 'playing doctor' with JonBenet). Something was wrong with this boy.

Then you had Patsy willing to let him play with a knife until the housekeeper insisted she be allowed to take it off him, him being pushed aside by his mother at weekends so Patsy could go whisk JonBenet off to pageants, Patsy's history of being molested which means she may have let all Burke's weirdness slide.

John requested his golf clubs to be brought from the house to him by Patsy's sister. What the fuck would he need golf clubs for unless one had been used to bash JonBenet's head in?

Anyone remember Claudine Longet? She was a starlet of the 60s, married Andy Williams, divorced and in the 70s, shot her boyfriend to death in Denver. Because the police bungled the case, she was convicted of a very minor charge and basically walked. The incompetence of the local police in CO seems to be a statewide problem that stretches decades back. The Ramsey case was fatally bungled by the police way before the DA refused to charge.

In Steve Thomas' Book about the murder he gives his theory that something happened between Patsy and JonBenet resulting in a blow to her head that crushed her skull. Everything after that was a joint coverup between Patsy and John Ramsey.

Also almost all handwriting analysts agree that Patsy wrote the note.

by Anonymousreply 7610/26/2013

I think everyone agrees she wrote the note, but that doesn't mean she killed her. She could have been told to write it by John, or to cover up for the brother. Or because she did it. The note proves a cover-up, but does not indicate who was the killer.

by Anonymousreply 7710/26/2013

I love Steve Thomas's book. It really does put all the details out there but also just cuts it down to a murder investigation. Once that's done it's pretty clear who did it.

One of the most bizarre aspects of the case was detective Linda Arndt. She kept meeting privately with Patsy. When the police department found out they asked her to detail her conversations in a report. She said she couldn't. She promised Patsy all there conversations were woman to woman, between friends, and swore she would never tell anyone what she said.

And they kept her on the investigation!

Why is everyone so reluctant to consider the idea that a child could be killed by her mother? Even accidentally and in a fit of rage.

THAT is what the team of investigators concluded based on the evidence.

by Anonymousreply 9810/26/2013

Burke was 8 years old at the time of JonBenet's death; JonBenet was 6. According the autopsy, the cause of death was asphyxiation using a garrote.

I am not convinced an 8 year old boy physically could strangle a 6 year old girl; even if he tried, [italic]she would have been able to scream loud enough for anyone in the house to hear her.[/italic]

I believe the initial theory; Patsy killed JonBenet accidentally while abusing her. JonBenet had an ongoing bed-wetting problem that was frustrating Patsy.

No one bothered to intervene and pull Patsy off when they heard JonBenet screaming for her life, because the sound of JonBenet screaming in pain was very normal in that house.

Most of the books that have been written by detectives on the case point the finger to Patsy. I believe one pointed it to Burke. None have said John. The child showed evidence of sexual abuse that had been on-going. I think Burke was probably abused as well. Both had a history of bed-wetting. The fact that Patsy wrote the note and had never changed clothes from the night before makes her highly suspicious. The knot on the rope makes John highly suspicious. It could be that they were punishing her and it got out of hand. Perhaps they are both the killers.

R111: Ramseys "did unlawfully, knowingly, recklessly and feloniously permit a child to be unreasonably placed in a situation which posed a threat of injury to the child's life or health, which resulted in the death of JonBenet Ramsey." - the parents placed her in a situation etc - they did not watch over the brother, i.e. behavior towards sister

"assistance to a person, with intent to hinder, delay and prevent the discovery, detention, apprehension, prosecution, conviction and punishment of such person for the commission of a crime, knowing the person being assisted has committed and was suspected of the crime of murder in the first degree and child abuse resulting in death." - they covered up for someone, knowing the person committed the crime - who else - the brother

weren't their reports that he hit her before, was in her room, other weird stuff, obviously she was getting the attention from her mother that may have been resented

R116, would a nine-year-old be indicted for first-degree murder? I don't think so. It's one of the parents.

by Anonymousreply 13410/27/2013

r134. To dwell on the question of whether a 9 year old would be indicted for 1st degree murder misses the issue, which is whether or not Burke CAUSED the death of JBR.

1st, 2nd, 3rd, reckless or negligent homicide is categorized by the potential penalty the perpetrator is subject to if found guilty of causing the death.

1st degree homicide is where the perpetrator has the intent to cause death and causes it and therefore, if the guilty party is an adult is subject to the harshest penalty.

Again, although rare, children do cause the deaths of others. What's relevant is their state of mind while doing it.

by Anonymousreply 13610/27/2013

correction- what's relevant is the state of mind of the perpetrator no matter their age- child or adult.

by Anonymousreply 13710/27/2013

It almost sounds like the DA knows the full story and is tiptoeing around the idea that Burke did it. It certainly doesn't seem to be specific at all in terms of Patsy's and John's involvement.

The anger and sarcasm in the ransom note directed at John Ramsay always indicated to me that Patsy wrote it.

Burke was overhead on the 911 tapes saying "What did I do?" while Patsy and John both said he was upstairs sleeping. Maybe he overheard his parents strategizing about what to do. "We could say Burke did it. They won't prosecute a kid." Burke might not have even realized JonBenet was dead at that point. Seems to put him out of the equation.

I've always found it more likely that, since abuse of some sexual nature was apparent (digital, not a penis, the examiner said), that perhaps Patsy came across John abusing JonBenet, took a swing at his head with a gold club, and hit her daughter instead. That, or else it was all Patsy's doing.

The way the Ramsay's seemed conjoined in their pleas of innocence felt like an uneasy affiliation. One of them really hated the other but there was nothing either of them could do about it.

by Anonymousreply 13810/27/2013

John never ever seemed to be grieving at all, he seems as cold as a slab of marble.

The fact that several policemen did not respond immediately...ruined everything. The parents and Burk should have been separately questioned as soon as the police got there. That mistake killed whatever case could have been brought against them. We will never know what happened but I choose to believe John did it, all common sense will tell you that John killed his child.

by Anonymousreply 13910/27/2013

True, R139. Even on last year's Anderson Cooper interview, John Ramsey seemed very detached and uninterested in the case and couldn't offer any new explanations as to who would have done this to his daughter.

by Anonymousreply 14010/27/2013

R136, first-degree murder is, according to wiki, "any murder that is willful and premeditated". This would mean not, as you claim, that Burke caused JonBenet's death but that he intended to kill her and set out to do so. Perhaps, at the age of nine, he premeditated, decided to kill his sister and did so intently. But, still, at age 9, would the courts try a kid for first-degree murder? Would a 9 year old be deemed capabale of having a state of mind that intended to kill?

And what do you mean by he "caused" her to be killed?

The charge of first-degree murder in these indictments is pretty chilling. It would mean that JonBenet's death wasn't an accident or a result of momentary rage.

by Anonymousreply 14110/27/2013

r141, The question is, in the context of our discussion, what state of mind (mens rea)the perpetrator when causing JBR's death.

Intent="willful and premeditated."

Or, was her death caused by means that were reckless, negligent or accidental?

All US jurisdictions have statutory or common law juvenile justice codes whereby crimes committed by children are treated differently then they are in the adult criminal system.

I happen to believe that it cannot be ruled out that Burke caused her death. The question is whether it was intentional (willful and premeditated"), reckless, negligent or accidental.

Perhaps I'm wrong by concluding that Burke should not be ruled out as the perpetrator. So far, however, I've seen nothing that persuades me otherwise.

In fact, as I've stated repeatedy and I do so again: the Ramseys behaved as any parents would in protection of their child : refuse to cooperate, lawyer up, stick together like velcro.

by Anonymousreply 16611/02/2013

There is no evidence that Burke did it. And R166 clearly did not pay attention to the fact that Burke would not have been charged. If it was an accident, any parent would have called the cops. If Patsy were guilty, why would she have called the cops? She genuinely was going crazy over her daughter being missing. The cops checked the place and saw no signs of forced entry. The cops suspected John but the case went down the drain with their inexperience and him being ruled out (by the people he hired) as the ransom writer. Once that happened, Patsy became the target. She stood by her man and how could she suspect him if she too thought he did not write the note. The cops were stupid to allow the couple's lawyers to be fed information and for believing those "experts" in the first place. And they did not question Burke properly. He is the other person who would be able to verify that that window had not been broken in the summer as John claimed. His train room was in the basement.

They brought her in for questioning. Or rather she agreed to come in and answer some questions. The possibility of the sexual abuse of JonBenet was already more than a concern. Usually, some one the age of John, has already abused. It would make sense if he would do it with his young daughter he would do it with his eldest. Establishing a pattern. I could be wrong. I'm not a cop. But the investigator who wrote the book I read was there during the questioning and I'm just confirming the source for what I wrote.

R195, do you mean Steve Thomas' book, because he's the police officer involved who wrote a book. I just had a search through his book online. There's nothing about Melinda Ramsey running out crying out of the police station when "questioned" about abuse. Would they even ask a question like that? There's a description of how Thomas and other police spoke with Melinda, her mother and their lawyer in the lawyer's office months after the murder, but they answered no questions about John Ramsey and Thomas says the interview was useless.

In another book "Perfect Murder, Perfect Town", Larence Schiller says the police interviewed Melinda (nothing about "questioning"), but that's it, nothing about running out of the room crying or being asked about sexual abuse.

Perhaps you're referring to another book.

I have always found the Burke did it theories to be bizarre. Yes, in many ways he was a screwed up little boy.

But I don't buy that Burke had the strength to cause the head injury that JonBenet had.

It's far more absurd that people think Patsy did it. She wasn't the best mother but she doted on JonBenet. That she would kill her over bed wetting (an issue she was already aware) makes no sense. John killed her and used his money to steer the investigation away from him. Using Patsy's notepad and Burke's fingerprints on the bowl of pineapple steers it away from him. Hiring experts to say he did not write the note steers it away from him. And Patsy being a scapegoat did not bother him. He knew she didn't do it but as long as no one focused on him, life was fine.

R232, I have read this theory in other places and so I thought I would re-state it here. It's not really my own original idea.

All we can really say for sure is what remains true today - John Ramsey has been unable or unwilling to provide authorities with a list of anyone who could have done this. He even said this as recently as when he was on Anderson Cooper last year.

Despite the fact that the writer of the ransom note knew the amount of his bonus, and suggested the involvement of someone known to the Ramseys from work or amongst their friends, he has not named anyone.

Is this because the Ramseys did the crime themselves, or because they know who did but don't want to say?

by Anonymousreply 24111/08/2013

When this first happened my revulsion of Patsy led me to think it must be her. And then the new DA came and it seemed plausible that they might be innocent. And then I saw the handwriting analysis and went back to thinking it was Patsy. And I briefly toyed with the idea it might be Burke (but the steps he would have needed to take to do it put it into the realm of impossibility for one so young). But then I saw the comparative handwriting analysis which shows that the handwriting actually looks much more like John's than Patsy's. And now I've arrived at my conclusion which is perhaps the most likely and obvious (and downright ordinary thus less sexy and scandalous) choice given what we know of the case, John did it. I think it is likely that he did it and that he also wrote the note. I think that Patsy had less involvement than most people think. IMO this is a woman who had her perfectly constructed world imploded - she is no different from any other woman deeply in denial regarding the sexual violation of her child by someone she loves and trusts.

Possibly. Ive seen some people speculating re that scenario on various blogs. I think its clear though that as far as a killing goes it wasn't likely premeditated... it just wasn't well planned. Its not generally a good idea to kill someone in your own house. So he was gambling that those first on the scene would be both in shock and, more likely, compromised in their work by his position of prominence and power in the community (a bet that was worth taking because it paid off). I think if he could have gotten her body safely out of that house without Patsy knowing he would have but he ran out of time/opportunity. Its quite possible/likely that aspects of the scene and or things done to the body occurred after the fact. If I were to gamble I would disagree with some of the other bloggers who suggest that JonBenet may have threatened to tell. Instead I think that in the process of abusing her a 'mistake' occurred, a serious injury that could not be explained/covered up and/or a completed death at that time - either way he killed her either right then or shortly thereafter. Everything that comes after that - the staging of the body, the note etc is an attempt to deflect attention away from himself and towards an unnamed intruder.

Iirc, evidence pointing to sexual abuse on JBR was inconclusive. If she had been abused, especially on a regular basis, wouldn't her body have evidence of abuse? Did they check her bedding for DNA evidence?

Also, if I found a ransom note stating my child was kidnapped, I would immediately check on all my children, wake them , ask if they saw anything, and get them out of the house. I'd be worried about the safety of my entire family. Especially since the ransom note indicated the kidnappers were part of a larger foreign faction.

If John did do it, would he be the first murderer in history to go on to make tv appearances, write books, or run for office?

I have exaggerated a bit below but I truly believe this is somewhat how this went down:

After a few too many drinks at the Xmas party, Patsy was feeling like a strong southern woman. Grabbed JonBenet by the arm and said, "If you pee your bed tonight, little lady, I'm gonna spank you on your sugar bowl!"

Sure, enough, she peed the bed.

Patsy starts spanking JonBenet with a hair brush. "I'll teach you to defy me!" wack wack wack.

JonBenet: "NOOOOOOO!"

Patsy: "Don't NO me you little minx! Take this!" "WHACK WHACK, WHACK!"

JonBenet is thrown against the bathtub and her head is caved in. Near death.

Read this from 1999. I have no doubt its SRA!

District Attorney Alex Hunter has turned over new information to Boulder police and the FBI that he says could provide a major breakthrough in solving the 3-year-old JonBenét Ramsey murder case.

The information is from testimony and documents provided voluntarily by a 37-year-old California woman who was brought forward by Boulder attorney Lee Hill. The woman said she has suffered a lifetime of sexual and physical abuse, beginning at age 3. Her story, if true, could mean the Ramsey case is tangled in sexual abuse and involves more people than originally thought.

Hunter said he finds the woman to be "very believable." Boulder police detectives, however, aren't so sure.

"Even if only 15 percent of what she says is true," Hunter said, "this case warrants investigation. And if Boulder cops don't want to do it, I will take the case to the U.S. Attorney."

Police Chief Mark Beckner said Thursday, "Though our detectives did not find her to be credible, we are taking what she said seriously.

"I'm interested in finding the truth no matter where it leads us."

Beckner said the first thing his detectives will do is perform a thorough background check of the woman and meet with her therapist of 10 years in an attempt to corroborate her story.

Hill, who is a former San Diego County deputy district attorney and former special assistant U.S. attorney and is experienced in investigative work, said, "She is among the most credible witnesses I have ever interviewed." He is representing the woman in her decision to give information to authorities.

The woman has described to police years of sexual and physical abuse in California homes at the hands of adults who stayed at holiday and other parties after other guests had left for the evening. Then, she said, another "party," one of sexual abuse for the gratification of a select group of adults, would begin.

In talking to detectives, the woman draws parallels between sexual techniques used at these sessions and the physical evidence of garroting that investigators found on the body of JonBenét Ramsey. The woman told detectives she believes JonBenét was killed accidentally when an asphyxiation technique used to stimulate an orgasmic response during a child sex and porno "party" went too far.

The woman told police she knows firsthand about asphyxiation (choking) to produce a sexual response because it had been done to her when she was a child. The woman said in her experience little girls were dressed provocatively and trained to say provocative things, such as, "It's a pleasure to please you."

She told police that when girls did not perform as expected, they were struck on the head. That was because their hair covered the wound. A big night for such "parties" was Christmas night, she said. Over the years, she said, many parties were held then because a large number of cars around a house did not arouse suspicion in the neighborhood and the children had a full week to heal from their wounds before returning to school.

JonBenét Ramsey's death occurred overnight Christmas 1996. The autopsy report concluded she suffered a blow on the head and was strangled.

The woman said she knows the Ramseys through the Fleet White family. She said the godfather to her mother is FLEET WHITE SR., 86, of California. Fleet White Jr. of Boulder and John Ramsey were close friends until the death of JonBenét.

WHITE JR WAS WITH JOHN RAMSEY WHEN JonBenét's BODY WAS FOUND in the basement of the Ramsey's Boulder home. White Jr. has since been crusading for Hunter's ouster from this case for refusing to prosecute the Ramseys.

Ramsey's attorney, Bryan Morgan, declined comment. Fleet White could not be reached Thursday.

Police cleared White as a suspect in April 1997.

Attorney Hill said the woman came forward because she was fearful for her life. She came to believe that people involved in child sexual abuse in California were becoming suspicious that she might try to talk to authorities. Hill said her main reason, however, was to try to save "other innocent vict

John Ramsey's daughter (from his first marriage), Elizabeth, had uncovered several vivid memories of Satanic, ritual sexual abuse after a failed suicide attempt (during the ensuing therapy sessions) in which her father apparently played a major role in the rituals. Within several months of uncovering the memories and going 'public' with them (talking to friends and family members) she was dead - killed in a 'freak' car accident the manner in which has never been fully resolved to investigators satisfaction.

Some weird info:

The DA Alex Hunter's daughter-in-law was the mistress of John Edwards, Her name: Reille Hunter. Patsy Ramsey died of cancer soon after, and then, Mrs. Edwards died of same kind of cancer.

Then there was a high profile Australian actress whisked away from the Christmas Eve party, Nicole Kidman, maybe?

John Ramsey dated the mother of another abducted girl, Natalie Holloway.

It is clear from the statements of both Detective Colson and Char Blazer that the Boulder authorities were very interested in a connection between the death of Jonbenet and what appears to be organized pedophilia on a national level, perhaps with a criminal Government license.

The William Morris Agency has close ties to NBC News. It was NBC which broke the current JonBenet Ramsey story. The William Morris Agency also represents up and coming child models and had solicited a contract from the Ramsey’s for the 'services' of JonBenet. It should also be noted that in early 1996 the Denver Police had been investigating a Denver Child-Porno Protection ring linked to and run by none other than the Wm. Morris Agency and FBI Div. #5

John Ramsey ran a company called Access Graphics with offices in the Philippines, Amsterdam, Holland and Denver, Colorado. Access Graphics did business with the Wm. Morris Agency and had service contracts directly with what is commonly known as Iran Contra. Access Graphics major bank accounts were parked at the noted Iran Contra money-laundry Silverado Savings and Loan and administered by none other than Director of Silverado, Neil Bush, George W. Bush's brother. Ramsey was also on a list of witnesses never subpoenaed by former Iran Contra Prosecutor Lawrence Walsh. It can now be reported that Ramsey had either knowingly, or unknowingly, pimped his daughter out as a prostitute to the Wm. Morris Agency who were taking these child 'Models' and using them to provide sexual services for pedophiles in Government, Industry and so on in addition to their Modeling shows

The vaginal opening, according to Dr. Robert Kirschner of the University of Chicago's pathology department, was twice the normal size for six-year-olds.

"The genital injuries indicate penetration," he says, "but probably not by a penis, and are evidence of molestation that night as well as previous molestation."

There were also blood and urine stains on her underpants. A considerable obstacle to investigators, according to one well placed source in the D.A.'s office, was the fact that "the crime scene and the body were cleaned up, although not sterilized."

I know it's a lot for someone like you to read so I'll just copy the pertinent info. You're welcome, shithead.

"Dr. Cyril Wecht, a well known forensic pathologist, has no doubt that the 45-pound child was molested.

by Anonymousreply 30811/18/2013

Dear moron, neither Dr. Cyril Wecht nor Dr. Robert Kirschner conducted the autopsy on JonBenet, so they don't have a fucking clue. The coroner who did conduct the autopsy, however, gave no indication of any prior sexual abuse. Wecht and Kirschner are basing their opinions on the coroner's report, not their own studies. Of course, they come up with the conclusion that enables them to insert themselves into the media story.

The idiot at r303 also forgot to check his own sources. Right above the extract he cites, we read: "Dr. Richard Krugman, a specialist in child abuse brought in as a consultant by Hunter's office, says that there was a vaginal abrasion, which "is a sign of trauma,[but] it's not a sign of sexual abuse necessarily." "

Moreover, the vaginal opening is not the same as the vagina, so even here we don't have any claim that JonBenet's vagina was twice the size as normal for her age (as I said, gay men trying to talk about women's physiology is a joke).

None of the reports from the coroner or any medical professionals who actually examined JonBenet said anything about her hymen being broken, her vagina being expanded, yeast infections or any shit like that. Some idiot may have read some fabricated bullshit written by an unrelated lunatic on the internet, but crap on the internet is not a "report".

R314, if the parents "influenced" the autospy then it makes no difference to claims about the size of JonBenet's vagina or a possible pattern of sexual abuse, because anyone making those claims would still not be making them on the basis of an examination of JonBenet's body, dead or alive, but on the basis of what their personal version of how she died is. They would still be guessing and inventing.

But, no, the autopsy report showed nothing about broken hymens of expanded vaginas. In the absence of such evidence, we can assume her hymen was intact and her vagina was normal. There is no evidence of a pattern of sexual abuse.

What the autopsy did show is that there was an abrasion around the outside of her vagina presumably caused at the time of the attack, although it was not clear what caused this and there is no clear evidence that she was penetrated by a penis. Obviously, something evil and tragic happened to JonBenet, but that doesn't mean we should make up crap. All that does it make it even more difficult to establish what did happen to her and who did it.

R318, Do you believe R306 that the little girl was taken countless times to a doctor and to a gynecologist? That's highly unusual and if true should have been reported to authorities immediately.

"John Ramsey is a BILLIONAIRE! That's the ONLY reason this dude's NOT in prison. The ONLY reason this case is not completely solved."

Rich and powerful people can be arrested and even go to prison. Where do you think Phil Spector is now?

John Ramsey was never a billionaire.

JonBenet's vagina showed signs of molestation.

Those are facts.

Maybe not personally, R321, but he sold his company to Lockheed Martin for a billion dollars.

The recent Canada pedo ring arrests show that such a thing is possible.

Ramsey's adult daughter died in a suspicious traffic accident.

Facts.

No, r319, I don't believe what r306 said. R306 either made that up himself or is a gullible idiot who read it on some bullshit internet site and just believes any old shit he comes across.

JonBenet was not taken countless times to a doctor and gynecologist. She may have gone several times to a doctor as any kid does, but not for sexual reasons. As you say, if it were true her doctor/gynecologist would have reported it immediately. Since no such reports were ever made, then it's not true.

You may retort with the standard "but the Ramseys paid them to keep shut". Aside from that being a level of systematic corruption on a scale unseen, if the doctors did keep shut and did not reveal anything to anyone, then how the fuck did r306 hear about this purported abuse?

R321, the exterior of JonBenet's vagina had an abrasion although no clear signs of penetration and it's not apparent just what caused the abrasion. Certainly, something very nasty happened to her on the night she died. But, there is no evidence of systematic child sexual abuse before that evening, and all the claims about infections and expanded vaginas are just bullshit.

What is the evidence that Ramsey's elder daughter died in suspicious circumstances? That's the first I've heard of it.

"What is the evidence that Ramsey's elder daughter died in suspicious circumstances?"

That's because there is no evidence of that.

"The recent Canada pedo ring arrests show that such a thing is possible."

Those people were exchanging child porn using the anonymity of the internet. They weren't getting together to party and molest kids.

Investigators were trying to find evidence of a pattern of sexual abuse in the family. There are people in the know in law enforcement and judicial circles, but they can't say anything because they'll be sued for defamation. Doesn't mean that they're wrong, just means that they can't prove it in court.

R323 is deranged.

John's older daughter from his earlier marriage died in a tragic (not suspicious) accident.

The idea that the Canadian pedophile ring sheds any light on the Ramsey case, with its staged victim and preposterous ransom note, is absurd.

The case of Marc Dutroux is also informative. A complicit judge delayed the trial. 27 witnesses died mysteriously before the trial finally took place. Research it yourself and draw your own conclusions.

by Anonymousreply 32911/19/2013

R329, the cases are nothing alike.

R324 grossly understates JB's vaginal trauma and trips to the pediatrician, who was a friend of the family.

by Anonymousreply 33011/19/2013

The cases are similar, R330, as is the Franklin Scandal amongst many others, because they deal with pedo rings that cater to the rich and powerful.

by Anonymousreply 33111/20/2013

R321, what pedo ring raped JonBenet that night leaving zero DNA? Idiot.

by Anonymousreply 33211/20/2013

Tinhat alert. There was no "pedo ring" in this case. Franklin scandal is bullshit.

People so often wish to deny the simple and obvious explanation.

John killed his daughter 17 years ago tonight.

R336 speaks the truth.

by Anonymousreply 33712/25/2013

R324 you are so OTT with your hysterical molestation denials - something cray cray obviously went down in your childhood. I can see the hamster in your head furiously trying to run away from your own repressed and denied memories with your staunch refusals to click on links or read reports, transcripts-- only your own mind tells you there was no abuse. Keep telling yourself that. It's obviously protecting you from some dark shit.

by Anonymousreply 33812/26/2013

I totally believe John did it. But I'm loving the whole pedo ring tinhats! They make it fun. I also absolutely believe JBR was sexually abused. And I believe by John.

However, I was a chronic bedwetter until I was about 11 and I was never abused. It seems bedwetters stay in REM sleep for too long, which is why they don't "wake" up or have the body control to stop the piss. (My sister's kid was also a chronic bedwetter and she took him to a specialist.) They're in too deep a sleep. So, sometimes pee is just pee and not indicative of anything else.

What the he'll is the current DA waiting for? Or is he scared shitless of John?

by Anonymousreply 34001/07/2014

It was Burke. He did it in a jealous rage. He was already doing things like substituting chocolates in a gift box from one of her pageant wins with balls he made from his feces. He also had already smacked her in the head before with a golf club.
