Suspect arrested in JonBenet death
Rocky Mountain News ^ | 8-16-06 | Charlie Brennan

Posted on 08/16/2006 2:11:38 PM PDT by M. Peach

A man arrested in Thailand is being held in connection with the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, law enforcement officials said today. Federal officials familiar with the case, who spoke with the Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said the man was being held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges.

A source close to the case identified the suspect as one-time resident of Conyers, Ga., and said he was a school teacher.

The source said that authorities had been focusing on him for some time and that Patsy Ramsey had been made aware prior to her death on June 24 that his arrest was being pursued.

The girl was found beaten and strangled in the basement of the family’s home in Boulder, Colo., on Dec. 26, 1996.

Law enforcement officials from Boulder were flying to Bangkok to present Thai authorities with documents in the slaying of the 6-year-old beauty pageant contestant, officials in Washington said. They asked to remain anonymous pending an announcement in Colorado.

The girl’s parents, Patsy and John Ramsey, had been under an "umbrella of suspicion" in JonBenet’s death. The Ramseys said an intruder killed their daughter. A grand jury investigation in Boulder ended with no indictments, and no arrests had been made in the case.

Patsy Ramsey died in July.

In 2003, U.S. District Judge Julie Carnes in Atlanta concluded that the evidence she reviewed suggested an intruder killed JonBenet. That opinion came with the judge’s decision to dismiss a libel and slander lawsuit against the Ramseys by a freelance journalist, who the Ramseys had named as a suspect in their daughter’s murder. The Boulder district attorney at the time said she agreed with Carnes’ declaration.

I don't know about peace - I figure that her being accused contributed to her death. I for one thought she was guilty.

I do not believe any of this for a minute. Now CNN says the arrestee is a 41 year old school teacher.

This is all being orchestrated and I'll readily fess up if I'm wrong. I think there's waaaaaay more to this story right now than is being told.

What REALLY Happened to Jonbenet

I hope this will change the way people approach these kinds of cases. That woman who drowned her children in the car and blamed it on a stranger screwed it up in one direction and I hope this case brings it back towards being reasonable and looking at ALL leads.

This is a news article. The other is a Freeper post that references something on TV.

Justifies two different threads. Besides, the earlier one says arrest expected and this one says the arrest made.

You got that right. I worked for a school principal who took every summer vacation in Thailand. He was never caught abusing a student, but since we had a great many Asian immigrant families in the school it was believed that he preyed upon a number of kids. Could never prove it and he retired with a full pension. From what I hear, he still frequents Bangkok.

He confessed FGS..and only knew details that the killer would know...according to sources.

John Ramsey says Patsy was aware that the Boulder police were going to make an arrest...He praised the Boulder Police dept.

I didn't post to label this thread as a duplicate, but rather to direct interested FReepers to the busiest of the JonBenet threads.

Orchestrated by whom? There have been a number of cases where suspects broke into houses and kidnapped/murdered children. In my opinion, this was one of the first. After that little girl Polly was kidnapped. I wondered if perhaps this was what happened to Jon Benet.

The Ramsey family attorney confirms that Patsy was informed before her death of inpending arrest.

Their lawyer knew about a month before Patsy died in June.. He says the man was under investigation for an extended period of time..

Special note ~ JonBenet's folks had her wrapped up on that child beauty pageant trick. That sort of thing attracts pedophiles like crazy.

The earliest theories were that one of them had followed the Benet's home, then killed their kid.

Looks like the earliest theories may well have been right on the mark.

Patsy Ramsey had been made aware prior to her death on June 24 that his arrest was being pursued.

You know, I hope John Ramsey sues the person who runs that miserable website you named. There is no evidence Patsy Ramsey murdered her daughter. Patsy Ramsey's life was miserable because of people like you and that vile person who runs that site.
