  8. 8. "Wherever he steps, whatever he touches, whatever he leaves, even unconsciously, will serve as a silent witness against him. Not only his fingerprints or his footprints, but his hair, the fibers from his clothes, the glass he breaks, the tool mark he leaves, the paint he scratches, the blood or semen he deposits or collects. All of these and more, bear mute witness against him. This is evidence that does not forget. It is not confused by the excitement of the moment. It is not absent because human witnesses are. It is factual evidence. Physical evidence cannot be wrong, it cannot perjure itself, it cannot be wholly absent. Only human failure to find it,study and understand it, can diminish its value." - Professor Edmond Locard
  9. 9. “Nobody knows for certain what happened on the night of December 25, 1996 that caused the unnatural and violent death of JonBenet Patricia Ramsey, except for the person or persons who perpetrated it.” …John Douglas, retired FBI agent and criminal profiler
  10. 10. “The JonBenet case will continue [to be] unsolved and will remain one of the most botched crime investigations in the annals of U.S. law enforcement” …Pat O’Connor, Editor, Crime Magazine
  11. 11.  Boulder is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, just 35 miles northwest of Denver.  Home of the University of Colorado's main campus.  Boulder is known for its natural beauty, outdoor recreation, natural product retailers and restaurants, outstanding transportation options, diverse businesses, and technological and academic resources.
  12. 12. Beth Patsy JonBenet John Andrew Burke John
  13. 13. - 6500 sq. ft on ½ acre of land - Wealthy neighborhood
  14. 14. 5:00 pm 12/24/96 The Ramsey’s go to the home of their friends, Fleet and Priscilla White, for Christmas dinner. The Whites live one mile away.
  15. 15. 9:30 pm The Ramsey’s arrive home. John carries the sleeping JonBenet to her room. Patsy prepares her for bed.
  16. 16. 10:00 pm John, Patsy and Burke go to bed. This is reportedly the last time anyone sees JonBenet alive, asleep in her bed
  17. 17. 12:00 pm The neighbor across the street hears a piercing scream just before midnight. Her husband hears the sound of metal on concrete. Another neighbor report odd lights in the home. No one called the police.
  18. 18. 5:45 am John and Patsy awake to catch a 7:00 am flight to Michigan. John takes a shower. It is unclear what Patsy did at this time, but it may be one of the following:
  19. 19. 5:45 am 1. Patsy goes down a spiral staircase with some laundry. 2. Went down the spiral staircase to make coffee. 3. She went to wake up JonBenet and finding her missing went down the spiral staircase
  20. 20. 5:45 am On the spiral stairs Patsy finds a 3 page ransom note. The note states “We have your daughter”. John and Patsy do not find JonBenet in her room or Burke’s room.
  21. 21.  5:55 am  Patsy Patsy: “Police.”  911: “What’s going on ma’am?”  Patsy: “755 15th street.”  911: “What’s going on there ma’am”  Patsy: “We have a kidnapping. Hurry, please!”  911: “Explain to me what’s going on. Ok?”  Patsy: “There. We have a, there’s a note left and our daughter’s gone.”  911: “A note was left and your daughter’s gone?”  Patsy: “Yes!”  911: “How old is your daughter?”  Patsy: “She’s 6 years old. She’s blonde, 6 years old.”  911: “How long ago was this?”  Patsy: “I don’t know I just got the note, and my daughter’s gone.”  911: “Does it say who took her?”  Patsy: “What?”  911: “Does it say who took her?”  Patsy: “No! I don’t know. There’s a, there’s a ransom note here.”  911: “It’s a ransom note?”  Patsy: “It say’s SBTC. Victory! Please!”  911: “Okay, what’s your name? Are you Kath...?”  Patsy: “Patsy Ramsey, I’m the mother. Oh my God! Please!”  911: “Okay, I’m sending an officer over OK?  Patsy: “Please!”  911: “Do you know how long she’s been gone?”  Patsy: “No I don’t! Please we just got up and she’s not here. Oh my god! Please!”  911: “Okay, Cal....”  Patsy: “Please send somebody.”  911: “I am honey.”  Patsy: “Please.”  911: “Take a deep breath and...”  Patsy: “Hurry, hurry, hurry!”  911: “Patsy? Patsy? Patsy? Patsy?” calls 911
  22. 22. 5:55 am Patsy calls 911 to report the kidnapping although the note stated the child would be killed if the police were notified. It is written in a felt tipped pen. The style is either someone who very nervous or attempting to disguise their writing style. The note asks for $118,000 dollars and is signed “S.B.T.C.”
  23. 23. 5:52 am First officers arrive and were shown the ransom note. Officers reported that: 1. While John paced the floor, Patsy watched him through her splayed fingers 2. Patsy was wearing fresh makeup and the same clothes she was wearing at dinner the night before.
  24. 24. 5:55 – 6:00 am John Ramsey called two sets of friends, the Fleets and the Fernies’, and asked them to immediately come over.
  25. 25. 6:00 am- 8:00 am Additional police arrive. The Whites arrive. The Fernies arrive. A priest arrives. If this is a kidnapping, the entire house is a crime scene. Why are people allowed to enter???
  26. 26. 6:00 am – 8:00 am The first officer who was on scene makes a quick search of the house, including the basement, and finds no evidence of forced entry
  27. 27. 6:20 am Fleet White was allowed to search the house alone, including the basement, but found nothing. He opened a door to a small storage area. It was dark inside and not finding a light switch closed the door. Why is someone allowed to search the crime scene and do so without being accompanied by the police.
  28. 28. 7:00 am Burke is awakened and later driven to the Whites house by the Whites and Fernies. White and Fernie later return to the Ramsey house. 1. A possible witness / future victim is allowed to leave the house? and 2. Why are people are allowed to come and go from a crime scene ?
  29. 29. 8:10 am Detectives Arndt and Patterson arrive on scene and are briefed about the incident. A victims advocate is called for the Ramsey’s. They are allowed into the house with coffee and bagels. A family friend reportedly wiped down and cleaned the kitchen counters with a cleaner after crime scene tech’s dusted for prints. You’re kidding me, right?
  30. 30. 8:00 am – 1:00 pm Ransom note stated the kidnappers would call between 8 am and 11 am No call was ever received. John Ramsey calls a friend in Atlanta to arrange for the ransom money
  31. 31. 10:00 am John Ramsey goes down to the basement alone. He finds a broken open window and closes it before coming back upstairs. He had been gone for about ONE HOUR Ramsey does not report this “open window” to the police at this time. He later claims he broke the window the previous year when he locked himself out.
  32. 32. 10:30 am JonBenets bedroom is sealed off by Arndt and Patterson. Patterson leaves. Between 10:30 am and 1:00 pm Arndt reportedly asked HQ for backup at the house. None came. She is there alone.
  33. 33. 1:00 pm Arndt reportedly asks John Ramsey, Fleet White and John Fernie “to check the interior of the residence for any sign of JonBenet, or anything that may have been left or taken that belonged to JonBenet” John Ramsey immediately went to the basement with the other two men. Unbelievable !!!
  34. 34. 1:03 pm – 1:05 pm  In the basement the men come upon the broken window and there are small broken pieces of glass on the floor. (John Ramsey claims he never fixed the window when he broke it.)  They also notice a suitcase below the broken window. (A step?) They move the suitcase from its original spot.
  35. 35. 1:03 pm – 1:05 pm  John Ramsey enters a basement storage room and finds the body of JonBenet.  She is laying on her back, wrapped in a blanket with her arms above her head.  Her head is uncovered.  She has been strangled with a cord which is still around her neck.  Duct tape covers her mouth.  Though not immediately apparent, her skull has been crushed.  She is wearing long johns and a knit shirt with a sequined star on the front
  36. 36. 1:03 pm -1:05 pm  John Ramsey removes the duct tape from her mouth.  He picks her up and carries her upstairs to the hallway area.  CPR may be have been done at this time.  JonBenet is in full rigor and her lips are blue. Contamination of evidence
  37. 37. 1:05 pm  Arndt herself picks up the body and carries it to the living room placing it under the Christmas tree.  John Ramsey returns and places a covering from a nearby chair on the body.  A Colorado Avalanche sweatshirt is later seen on the body as well.  Patsy Ramsey collapsed on the body saying “Jesus, you raised Lazarus from the grave. Raise my baby”  Fleet White returns to the basement and picks up the duct tape. Further contamination.
  38. 38. 1:25 pm Backup officers respond to scene. A detective walks through the basement to see if anyone is hiding there. He sees two blankets in the “wine cellar” where the body had been found. NOTE: Fleet White would take Arndt aside later and tell her he had opened the wine cellar door earlier when he searched the basement and saw nothing.
  39. 39. 1:45 pm The Ramsey’s are allowed to leave their home and stay with the Fernies. They meet with friends, a doctor and an attorney. AT THIS TIME THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SEPERATED OR QUESTIONED IN DEPTH THEY WOULD NOT BE FORMALLY QUESTIONED UNTIL APRIL 30,1997….4 MONTHS LATER
  40. 40. 1:50 pm The house is cleared and finally declared a crime scene. 8:30 pm The body of JonBenet is removed from the house and an autopsy performed the following morning.
  41. 41. The Note: It was determined the note had come from a notepad located in the Ramsey’s house near the spiral stairs. This could mean one of two things: 1. An intruder had spent a fair amount of time inside the Ramsey house or 2. She was killed by one or more people inside the house (John, Patsy, Burke)
  42. 42. Note con’t: The amount of the ransom was $118,000 This is the exact amount of the bonus John Ramsey had received from his company Why not ask for $5 million dollars ??
  43. 43. Note: JonBenet is always referred to as “ your daughter "never by her name. Did they know how to spell it? Several lines in the note are very similar to lines from movies (Speed, Ransom, Dirty Harry) Question: If this was a kidnapping why wouldn’t the suspect just bring the already written note with them. Why count on having the time to write it there?
  44. 44. JonBenet 1. The rope around her neck was tied to a broken stick. The stick was used to tighten the noose. 2. The stick was determined to be a paint brush handle from Patsy Ramsey’s paint brush kit located in the basement.
  45. 45. 3. The paint kit was outside the storage door meaning it may have been the first handy tool the killer noticed. 4. Splinters were found on the basement floor showing the killing occurred in here rather than in other parts of the home.
  46. 46.  She was sexually assaulted (bleeding and abrasions) though it may have been chronic  Strangled (petechial hemorrhages in the eyes)  *******Severe blunt force trauma to the right side of the head (but not a lot of bleeding??) ********  When your heart stops beating the blood flow slows to a stop and then ceases.  Strangulation before the head blow.
  47. 47.  Several years later an retired detective examining photographs of JonBenet’s body observed two small welts.  These were consistent in size and shape with a stun gun.  Was this device used to torture or control?
  48. 48. The window: The grate above the broken window appears to have been moved as the other grates had leaves on them. Possible scuff mark on the wall below the window and above the suitcase. You would have to know about the broken window?
  49. 49. 1. The notepad and a flashlight were in plain view in the house. Many view it as the weapon used to strike JonBenet, but no prints or trace evidence was ever found on it. 2. The items used for control, namely the stun gun, duct tape and cord were never found. This may indicate the suspect brought them with him. The flashlight may have been included.
  50. 50. The Shoe Print Found next to the body but due to number of people no claim to it has been made. Friends? Family? Police?
  51. 51.  Claims he murdered JonBenet  A pedophile who faces child pornography charges in California  Ex-wife stated he was with her in 1996 and not in Colorado.  Claims he drugged JonBenet but no drugs were ever found.  Claims he picked her up from school but it was Christmas vacation BUT…
  52. 52. An unusual item was found by an old high school classmate of Karrs’ in their yearbook.
  53. 53. Karr wrote in her book “ I Shall Be The Conqueror “ S. B. T. C.
  54. 54.  But to add to the confusion John Ramsey’s bible was found open to Psalms 35 and 36 on his desk: “ Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me Take up shield and buckler; and come to my aid Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to my souls, “I am your salvation”. CTBS is SBTC backwards. This does not appear anywhere else in the Bible.
  55. 55. June 24, 2006 Patsy Ramsey dies of ovarian cancer January 2007 John Ramsey becomes romantically involved with Beth Holloway , mother of missing and presumed murdered student Natalee Holloway.
  56. 56. July 9, 2008 New DNA evidence collected from JonBenets clothing does not belong to John, Patsy or Burke Ramsey. Could it be the killers? The sample has been placed in the CODIS national database and the hope is one day a match will occur.
  57. 57.  Aerospace Corporation analyzed the phone call made by Patsy Ramsey. Before the call ended Patsy was heard to say “Help me Jesus. Help me Jesus”. Burke Ramsey was heard in the background saying “What did you find ?”. John Ramsey barked out “We’re not talking to you”.  The Ramsey’s repeatedly said Burke did not wake until later that morning after police arrived.  If you were a parent and found your daughter missing, wouldn’t you immediately go and awaken your other children rather than letting them just sleep?
  58. 58.  John Ramsey at no time comforted his wife during the ordeal at their home.  It was later determined White move the suitcase from its original spot under the window. He also placed a piece of broken glass on a ledge altering the scene.  The ransom note was first picked up by Patsy, then spread out on the floor by John to read, and then placed back on the stairs. The photograph of the note on the steps is inaccurate.
  59. 59.  John Ramsey told three different officers that he had checked the house and all was secure. Months later he denied saying that to anyone.  When John Ramsey and Det. Arndt were over the body of JonBenet he asked if his daughter was alive. When she confirmed she was dead, John Ramsey allegedly said “It has to be an inside job”
  60. 60.  Arndt….” as we looked at each other, I wore a shoulder holster, I remember tucking my gun right next to me and consciously counting I’ve got eighteen bullets,” she said. “I didn’t know if we would all be alive when people showed up…Everything made sense in that instant, and I knew what happened.”  Only 6 % of child murders are committed by strangers. 54% are committed by family members. JonBenet had bed wetting issues and often wore pull up diapers. Often bed wetting and finding fecal matter in the bed is seen in cases of incest.
  61. 61.  Patsy Ramsey stated that JonBenet had gone to bed wearing a red turtleneck. Her body was discovered not wearing it. On the bathroom counter near JonBenets bedroom, the red turtleneck sweater was found balled up. Who had changed her ??  Small dark fibers were found in JBR’s pubic region.  Chunks of pineapple were found in JBR’s digestive tract. The Ramsey’s stated she had no pineapple that night before going to bed. There was pineapple in a bowl in the kitchen. The bowl contained Patsy’s fingerprints.
  62. 62.  The Sharpie pens used to write the ransom note were found in a cup on the kitchen counter beneath the telephone used to make the 911 call. That means after they wrote the note they put the pen back in its holder.  Why would the note be left on the back spiral stairway instead of the main staircase. How would a stranger know Patsy would come down those stairs.
  63. 63.  Why tuck a blanket around a corpse as if to protect her from the basement chill.  Missing pages were found from the note pad used to write the ransom note.  Two possible practice notes were found in the same pad.  During interviews where the person may be deceptive, a red flag goes up when someone “swears to god” that they didn’t do something.
  64. 64.  Definition: Statement analysis is a technique used, particularly in police investigation, to examine a person's words to detect concealed information, missing information, and whether the information that person has provided is true or false. ...
  65. 65. The note is very long. Most ransom notes are short and to the point. Do you really want to spend time writing three pages. Legitimate or bogus?
  66. 66.  “represent a small foreign faction” If you are a foreigner, would you call yourself a foreigner. You are not a foreigner to yourself. If you went to another country and did a kidnapping, would you call yourself a foreigner. Examples: “We are the Islamic Jihad” “We are the KKK” but We are foreigners?????
  67. 67.  “You will withdraw $118,000 from your account” The kidnapper may know the Ramsey’s are wealthy, but how do they know there is that amount of money in their account. Why not say “get the money” or “from the bank”. They don’t care where you get the money from ! Kidnappers are greedy. Why such a small amount of money.
  68. 68. “bring an adequate size attaché case to the bank” Do you really think kidnappers need to remind you to bring a big enough case to hold the money ? “ I advise you to be rested” It is doubtful a kidnapper will be concerned if you are rested or not
