Episode #16: JonBenet Ramsey

Summary of the Case:

The story everyone has heard, with the details you can’t believe.

On December 25th, 1996, the Ramsey family (Dad-John, Mother-Patsy, brother-Burke, daughter-JonBenet) attended a Christmas party. They got home around 10pm that night. What happens next is up for debate. The next morning Patsy would call 911 about a ransom note claiming JonBenet had been kidnapped and demanding money.

The police did not lock down the home as a crime scene, and thus an unknown amount of evidence was contaminated. Later on the 26th, John would find his daughter’s body in the basement, deceased. She had a head injury and had been strangled with a homemade garrote.

Despite intense scrutiny, the family has always maintained an intruder killed their daughter, and has maintained their innocence.

Research for the episode was done with the book, JonBenet: Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation by Steven Thomas.
