The Killing of JonBenet Ramsey

Description

JonBenet Ramsey was 6-years old when she was found murdered in the basement of her Boulder, Colorado home on the day after Christmas. Twenty-two years later, her murder remains unsolved. The reason why there has been no conviction in this case could be attributed to mistakes made by the Boulder Police Department right from the beginning of their investigation and to what many people define as a lack of cooperation by JonBenet’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey.

There are only two possible answers to what happened that night. One is that an intruder crept into the house, killed JonBenét in a botched kidnapping attempt while the family slept, then took off, leaving behind a three-page ransom note. The other possibility is that she was killed by a family member. In going over the physical and circumstantial evidence in the case, we’ll address the mistakes in the police investigation that have hindered a conviction and allowed a child killer to remain free before we examine the theories of what actually happened in the Ramsey house that night.

I always find it weird when people focus on the note. Handwriting analysis is a pseudoscience and so is linguistic analysis. It belongs to the same category as lie detectors and microscopic hair analysis in the late seventies and early eighties. Ada murders anybody? Also, the note being from the house isn't weird at all. Like you mentioned, the house was massive. Calling it a mansion does it disservice. Let's not forget that before the night of murder, there was a party going in the house. It could be easy to find few lonely minutes to write it. All the possible intruder needed to do was to take the paper and go to bathroom. I love you, but it would cool if you were less biased. Starting a podcast with admitting to what theory you subscribe to is very weird. Dismissing the intruder theory isn't rational. So a mom hitting her daughter and then strangling her to death is more plausible than an intruder? Burke hitting her sister and then mother covering for him by strangling her daughter is more plausible than an intruder? Sorry, but there's no evidence pointing at Burke or the parents. All people have is a handwritten note that is unreliable and erratic behaviour of a mother. Police messed it up and that's why this case will be unsolved forever.

Richard Vajdel Agreed 100%, and the tasing...? as a 'cover up' for an accidental killing by a family member, this is ludicrous
