From Wikipedia:
Quote:
JonBenét Patricia Ramsey (August 6, 1990 – December 25, 1996) was an American child whose murder at age 6 attracted extensive media coverage. Such coverage often focused on her participation in child beauty pageants, her parents' affluence and various unusual aspects of the case as well as questions regarding police handling of the case. She was found dead in the basement of her parents' home in Boulder, Colorado, nearly eight hours after she was reported missing. The case is notable in both its longevity and the media interest it has generated. After several grand jury hearings, the case is still unsolved. In February 2009, the Boulder Police Department took the case back from the district attorney and re-opened the investigation.
Evidence:
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/2006/0818/9699449.jpg (broken link)

Male DNA found on JonBenét's panties that is not the DNA of anyone in the Ramsey family and has not been sourced;

Male DNA found under JonBenét?s fingernails of both hands that is not the DNA of anyone in the Ramsey family and has not been sourced;

Two pairs of marks on JonBenét?s body which indicate that a stun gun was used to subject and torture her;

Evidence of an intruder found in the Ramseys? basement, including a broken open window with a suitcase and broken glass under it, and a window-well to this window with signs of recent disturbance;

Material from the window-well found in the room where JonBenét was discovered;

Male pubic or ancillary hair and numerous fibers found on JonBenét's body, clothing and blanket which do not match anything in the Ramsey home and have not been sourced;

Unidentified shoe prints in the basement and unidentified palm prints on the door to the room where JonBenét was found, which do not match those of anyone in the Ramsey home and have not been sourced;

JonBenét's autopsy findings, which indicate that she was sexually assaulted, strangled, tortured and then bludgeoned at or near the point of death
physical evidence of the manner and timing of her death which does not fit the theory of an accidental killing by a parent or sibling followed by staging;

The garrote and slipknots used to bind and kill JonBenét were sophisticated torture and bondage devices which no one in the Ramsey family had the knowledge to construct;

Materials used to assault and strangle JonBenét. The stun gun, nylon cord and duct tape which necessarily existed but which were never owned by the Ramseys and were not found in their home;

A missing portion of the paintbrush handle which was used to construct the garrote and may have been used to sexually assault JonBenét;

A three-page handwritten ransom note which law enforcement experts have not identified as being authored by any member of the Ramsey family;

Missing pages from the pad on which the ransom note was written;

The 'butler's' door found open the morning of the murder, near which was found an unsourced baseball bat that had fibers on it consistent with those found in the basement where JonBenét?s body was found;

Complete absence of evidence of motive or history indicating that John, Patsy or Burke Ramsey were capable of murdering JonBenét or staging an elaborate cover up of the crime.

Current Suspects:
It is no longer believed that the family KILLED JonBenet, however there are still those who believe that they had involvement.

Yet another travisty of justice here. Shows you just how competent the police REALLY are in real life. Such a bungled and botched job of forensics. What a sad, sad case this was. Poor Patsy Ramsey died being under the cloud of suspicion and never knowing what happened to her daughter. Maybe now she knows the truth.

Yes, its insane how botched the case was (and its "travesty"... a "Travisty" is when I come into the room)

Maybe one day, the truth will be known.

And with all the evidence the police continued to keep the focus centered on the family, as a pedophile walks free to do the same to another child.
Disgusts me.

What it shows is the incompetitanecy of the local polie which is common in mnay such small upscale places really. i mean the have police who basically never investiagted such a case. They loss so much by not taking the corect actions right away.But you have to remmeber that most evidence altho not as condlusive were drwan later by most ex-police officers. that is why almost all investigators for attorneies are ex-policeman. Expereience like anyhting makes a difference. Some of the mateur theroies are just that based on conjecture just like alie abductions.

The fact that the person knew the EXACT amt of the bonus the father got and asked for it REALLY stuck with me and seems SO fishy.

I always felt it was someone who knew the family.

I've had that suspicion, too, virgode. That JonBenet had pineapple in her stomach and the parents deny that she had eaten pineapple the night before indicates, to me, that she could have known her attacker. I have never thought that the parents had anything to do with her murder but I can see how/why their actions after-the-fact would arouse suspicions e.g.. refusing to take polygraphs, getting their own lawyer immediately.

I didn't understand the refusal of the polygraph, but most likely a recommendation of an attorney. When you consider most parents are automatically suspect in cases it makes sense to have representation, doesn't IMO indicate quilt. Took 12yrs for John and Patsy Ramsey to be cleared of the death of JonBenet.
