Seventeen years later and no arrest has been made in the death of 6-year-old beauty pageant tot, Jonbenet Ramsey.

In 1996, Ramsey’s body was found the day after Christmas in the basement of John and Patsy Ramsey’s Boulder, Col., home right after the discovery of a ransom note asserting kidnap.

The young pageant prototype was found with a fractured skull and suffered from asphyxiation through use of a cord.

Numerous speculations formed from this case during the investigation, one being that the parents were abusive.

The Grand Jury that investigated the murder case in 1999 voted to indict her parents. Yet, the court could not find reasonable doubt and ample evidence to accuse Mrs. And Mr. Ramsey of murder.

This information was not released until last October, putting a new spin on Ramsey’s murder details.

Even after the extraction of DNA testing in 2008, including the parents and brother, Burke Ramsey, Boulder police have failed to link a suspect to the crime.

“The case is still open, but is not actively being investigated and there are no new leads,” said Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner.

Now after so many years of change for the Ramsey family-Patsy has been deceased for seven years and John is remarried-the investigation has come to a halt.

Boulder investigators have recently declared Ramsey’s slaying a cold case.

A little bit of Ramsey’s life is detailed in John’s book titled “The Other Side of Suffering,” which was released earlier this year. He goes into detail about his faith in God and how it helped him survive through the nightmare he endured during the case.

Ramsey revealed in an interview with Christian Post that the longer the investigation stretches, the more he felt that the case would go unsolved.

It looks like his predictions were correct.

However, Beckner assures that Boulder police still has hope that someday the killer will be found.

    something has always been fishy about this story-death. The more money involved the more suspicion there is.

    I think Patsy Ramsey hired someone to kidnap her daughter to collect the Christmas bonus that her husband John received earlier. The amount demanded by the kidnapper exactly matched the $118,000 bonus. Patsy may have written the note herself, but hired someone else to enter the residence and take JonBenet away somewhere. Unfortunately, when dealing with people willing to do such a thing, idiocy and violence can quickly derail the plans. (See the movie Fargo for a similarly tragic kidnapping story.)

  • Crazy People

    Only crazy people are still obsessed with this case. I read the other article on this case and boy some of the commenters are literally nuts. We have ideas ranging from the parents did it to some weird BDSM incest conspiracy to it being an accident.

    This America is why people plead guilty to crimes they don’t commit. Going to a jury trial is almost suicide because people are crazy and you never know what they will think. This whole case also illustrates why there is no justice in America and half the people we have in our prisons are innocent. There is only one murderer in this case but over in the other article people are pointing fingers at twenty different people. Then add on top of that the fact many cops are corrupt or just incompetent.

    This girl will never get justice. You have people in prison who are completely innocent and they will never get justice. Justice is only served when you die and stand before God. That is the only place where the truth will be known and believe me, it will be known.

    Many people we think are so very good —- are evil as hell. Many people we think are so evil —- are not at all evil.
