In his book, Anderson shares the work of Colorado investigator Lou Smit, who came out of retirement in 1997 to work on the case. And died in 2010.
Anderson believes Smit is the only person who had an unredacted copy of the documents, outside of law enforcement.
The book lays out the details of the documents and how the Boulder police ignored the DNA evidence that could have identified JonBenét’s killer and exonerated her family.
The DNA analysis revealed that if the minor components found in exhibits #7, 14L, and 14M were contributed by a single individual, then members of JonBenét’s family, including John Andrew Ramsey, Melinda Ramsey, John B. Ramsey, Patricia Ramsey, Burke Ramsey, Jeff Ramsey, John Fernie, Priscilla White, and Mervin Pugh would be excluded as sources of the DNA.
JonBenét’s parents, Patsy and John, were long considered persons of interest in the case. And were not officially cleared until 2008.
Patsy died from cancer in 2006. And John continues to hope for justice.
