Note to Readers: I made a note a while back to review this post, as when I first did it I made the mistake of comparing photos of a child to determine if more than one had been used to play the part of “JonBenét Ramsey.” That was a pointless enterprise, as 1) we do not even know if such a child even existed, and 2) messing with photos of children is wasted time, as they change rapidly and we cannot predict what they will look like as adults.
Below you will find but one photo of “JonBenét”, but enough other information in order to judge for yourself that the event was an elaborate hoax. There’s another similar event in Europe, the disappearance of “Madeleine McCann,” that bears close scrutiny as well. It is similar to “JonBenét” in that both police and parents seem indifferent. I conclude at the end here that I was going to take a look at that matter, but never did. Maybe someone else wants a shot at it.
I just re-read what I wrote back then, and do not change a word. There was no murder, no child, no pedophile ring, no investigation. It was all a TV show.
The Fake Murder of JonBenét Ramsey
One of the most sensational murder cases of last century concerned six-year old girl JonBenét Ramsey, found dead in the family basement in Boulder, Colorado on December 25th, 1996. Coming as it did on the heels of the OJ Simpson trial, it served to capture the public’s attention for several years. Just last week (originally written 11/2016) a local station was revisiting the crime here in the Denver radio market.
