The murder investigation into the death of six-year-old beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey has been one of the most notorious and controversial cases in modern history. For years, investigators claimed to be suspicious of the family being involved in the crime. But they were eliminated in January 1997 by DNA evidence.
On Christmas Night 1996, JonBenet Ramsey was murdered in her Boulder, Colorado home. A ransom note demanding a $118,000 payment was found on the stairs inside the home.
Hours later surrounded by friends and police her father, John, found her body in the basement.
Investigators determined that she had been hit over the head and sexually assaulted. She had been strangled and had a fractured skull. Her mouth was closed with duct tape, and a nylon cord was wrapped around her wrists and neck.
Newly available documents show that DNA evidence recovered from JonBenét’s clothes and fingernails did not match any family members or close friends.
According to Fox News Digital, former El Paso County sheriff, John W. Anderson, shared all the details in his upcoming book titled “Lou and JonBenet: A Legendary Lawman’s Quest to Solve a Child Beauty Queen’s Murder.”
