    JonBenet Ramsey was killed by her older brother Burke and it was covered up by her parents after a fight over a midnight snack of pineapples, investigators have claimed. The six-year-old's mother Patsy Ramsey called 911 on December 26, 1996 to report that her six-year-old daughter had been kidnapped from her family's home in Boulder, Colorado. JonBenet, a child beauty queen, was found beaten and strangled on the floor of the family's cellar several hours after the 911 call.

    A new lawsuit has been filed seeking the release of an indictment on John and Patsy Ramsey, parents of the slain JonBenet, whose death dominated headlines worldwide more than a decade ago. A reporter from the Boulder Daily Camera and a local press advocacy group filed the lawsuit after reports surfaced a grand jury voted in secret to indict the Ramseys on charges of child abuse resulting in death in 1999. The Daily Camera reports Alex Hunter, the District Attorney at the time, refused to sign the indictment because of a lack of evidence. JonBenet, a frequent beauty pageant contestant,...

    BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 27 (UPI) -- A grand jury indicted John and Patsy Ramsey in their daughter's death in 1999 but the Boulder, Colo., prosecutor declined to try the case, jurors said.

A grand jury convened in the case indicted the couple with a class II felony, child abuse resulting in death. Members of the grand jury and others in the case told the Boulder (Colo.)

    The new district attorney of Boulder County, Colorado, said he plans to take a fresh look at the investigation into the 1996 slaying of JonBenet Ramsey. The 1996 slaying of JonBenet Ramsey is one of the nation's most famous cold cases. The DA's office assumed responsibility for the investigation in 2002. But District Attorney Stan Garnett told CNN that he wants to decide during his first 30 days in office whether the case should be returned to Boulder police. "I'm trying to determine whether it's efficient to have the ongoing investigation handled by my office or somebody else," said Garnett,...

    Boulder District Attorney Mary T. Lacy issues the following announcement with regard to the investigation of the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. On December 25-26, 1996, JonBenet Ramsey was murdered in the home where she lived with her mother, father and brother. Despite a long and intensive investigation, the death of JonBenet remains unsolved. The murder has received unprecedented publicity and has been shrouded in controversy. That publicity has led to many theories over the years in which suspicion has focused on one family member or another. However, there has been at least one persistent stumbling block to the possibility of...

    BOULDER, Colo. (Reuters) - New DNA tests have definitively cleared the parents of U.S. child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey of her unsolved murder almost 12 years ago, prosecutors said on Wednesday. In a statement seeking to silence suspicions surrounding relatives of the slain 6-year-old, prosecutors in the U.S. said new testing techniques on male DNA found on JonBenet's clothes did not match any family members. "This new scientific evidence convinces us that it is appropriate ... to state that we do not consider your immediate family, including you, your wife Patsy, and your son Burke, to be under any suspicion...

    DA clears Ramsey family By The Denver Post Article Last Updated: 07/09/2008 01:44:05 PM MDT The Boulder District Attorney's Office announced today that new DNA evidence discovered in the clothing worn by JonBenet Ramsey identifies "the perpetrator of the homicide" and excludes all members of the murdered girl's family. District Attorney Mary Lacy said in a letter posted on the DA's website and first reported by Paula Woodward of 9News that the Ramsey family "be treated only as victims," and she apologized to them. Six-year-old JonBenét was discovered Dec. 26, 1996, with a garrote around her neck in the basement...

John Ramsey, 63, and Beth Holloway Twitty, 46, have been romantically involved since January 2007, though the two met at a fundraiser last summer. The couple has been spotted openly holding hands and kissing in Mountain Brook, Ala. — where Twitty lives — and at an art show at a nearby art museum. They've also been seen at various restaurants.

    Where does a man go when he has been pilloried on cable television talk shows as an unrepentant pedophile and possibly a murderer despite never having been convicted of a crime? Nobody would say what John Mark Karr, the former suspect in the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, is going to do since he was freed Thursday after child pornography charges were dropped in Sonoma County, but his plans became partly clear about noon on Friday. That's when an employee of the Convent of the Sacred Heart school in San Francisco, where Karr worked briefly as a teacher's aide in 2000...

    About ten years ago, while writing a book on crime, I attended a district attorneys' convention in Las Vegas. I wasn't supposed to be there -- they don't like the press -- but I managed to sneak into the back of the hotel ballroom. After the first speech I struck up a conversation with the assistant district attorney sitting next to me. He was a young black man, neatly dressed, with a trim mustache. "What's the biggest thing you've learned as an ADA?" I asked him. He twirled his mustache for a moment, reflected and said, "People are capable of...

    BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy defended her decision to bring John Mark Karr back from Thailand to be investigated in the 1996 slaying of JonBenet Ramsey. "The decisions were mine," Lacy said, one day after she dropped the case against the 41-year-old schoolteacher. "I should be held accountable." Just as she began taking questions, a fire alarm disrupted the news conference, but it resumed a few minutes later. JonBenet's father found the little girl's body in the basement of their Boulder home on the day after Christmas 1996. For years, suspicion has focused on either...

    Sonoma County authorities will seek to have John Mark Karr extradited to California to face child pornography charges on hold since he failed to appear for a court hearing five years ago. District Attorney Stephan Passalacqua said the decision was made Monday after Colorado authorities dropped their case against Karr in the JonBenet Ramsey killing. Karr, a one-time substitute teacher in Petaluma area schools, is wanted on a no-bail warrant issued by a Sonoma County judge after he failed to appear at a December 2001 court hearing in a misdemeanor child pornography case. Sheriff's detectives said they found five photos...

In a recorded July 29 phone conversation with Tracey, Karr noted that he wanted Johnny Depp to portray him in a movie to be based on a manuscript Karr had authored. During that chat, Karr also noted that he was skilled at mimicry and was especially proud of his ability "to impersonate Katherine Hepburn."

    Gov. Bill Owens ripped the Boulder County district attorney today, saying "Mary Lacy should be held accountable for the most extravagant and expensive DNA test in Colorado history." Owens’ statement came shortly after news reports that suspect John Mark Karr’s DNA didn’t match that found on slain JonBenet Ramsey. "Unfortunately, the hysterics surrounding John Mark Karr served only to distract Boulder officials from doing their job which should be solving the murder of JonBenet Ramsey," Owens said. "I find it incredible that Boulder authorities wasted thousands of taxpayer dollars to bring Karr to Colorado given such a lack of evidence."...

    Well, for all us cynics out there, let us raise our glasses of whatever poison suits us in tribute to the late mainstream media. As we cynics so inerrantly predicted, John Mark Karr is a great big non-story. His version of the JonBenet Ramsey murder- that is, his false confession- was proven to be as dubious as his masculinity. The only thing Karr is guilty of is being a really, really creepy dude. And the mainstream media has once again proven its utter irrelevance by shoving every other important story out of the way so that millions of slathering View-bimbos...

    John Mark Karr will not be charged with the death of JonBenet Ramsey, but will be held in the Boulder County jail awaiting extradition to California, where he will face charges of possessing child pornography, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said this afternoon. "California wanted him," Pelle said. Prosecutors decided against charging Karr in the killing of the child beauty queen because his DNA does not match the DNA found in the girl's underwear. Authorities notified Karr earlier today that he might not be charged in Boulder, but he didn’t get the official word until he was transferred to the...

    A DNA sample from John Mark Karr, the key suspect in the notorious murder of six-year old JonBenet Ramsey, does not correspond with DNA traces found at the crime scene, a local television station reported. Denver's KUSA cited two unnamed sources for the report, which if confirmed would call into question Karr's claim to have committed the 1996 murder of the young beauty queen. US authorities have yet to comment on the television report. Karr, 41, was arrested in Thailand on August 16 on a California warrant over charges of possessing child pornography. He reportedly confessed to Thai police that...
