Forget all the books........this article is my personal favorite referral for the most updated information, free of spin.
You will find goodies like:
"In the course of the interview with Patsy Ramsey, prosecutors asserted that investigators had found:
Fibers on the sticky side of the duct tape John Ramsey removed from his daughter's mouth when he says he discovered her body in the basement wine cellar that are "identical" to fibers in the red sweater-jacket Patsy was photographed wearing at a Christmas dinner at a friends' house the previous day.
Fibers from the same type of jacket in the paint tray from which a brush was taken that was used to help fashion the ligature found around JonBenet's neck.
Fibers from the same type of jacket "tied into" the ligature.
Fibers from the same type of black wool shirt made in Israel that John Ramsey wore to the Christmas dinner "in" the panties JonBenet was wearing when she found and in her "crotch area."

"Publicly, Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner will say only that the Ramseys are "under the umbrella of suspicion." Privately, he revealed in a 2001 deposition, the Ramseys are considered "suspects" because there is a "probability" they were involved in the death of their daughter."
"Pathologists working with Boulder police say that JonBenet's vagina showed indications of long-term sexual abuse, according to Det. Thomas, citing "a panel of pediatric experts from around the country." He doesn't name them. He writes there were "no dissenting opinions among them."
"We gathered affidavits stating in clear language," he writes, "that there were injuries (to JonBenet's vagina) 'consistent with prior trauma and sexual abuse'....'There was chronic abuse'...'Past violation of the vagina'... 'Evidence of both acute injury and chronic sexual abuse.'"
"One expert summed it up well," Thomas writes, "when he said the injuries were not consistent with sexual assault but with a child who was being physically abused."

"Det. Thomas — who doesn't mention the possibility of filing cover-up charges in his book on the case — writes that prosecutors didn't feel up to the burden of prosecuting any case against the Ramseys, particularly not against the legal talent that would have been arrayed against them (the Ramseys had hired one of Colorado's foremost criminal defense firms). "Years of plea bargaining had made them paper tigers," Thomas charges, noting that under Hunter, Boulder prosecutors rarely took cases to trial because they favored plea bargains so strongly."

The experts Steve Thomas was referring to in regard to JonBenet's vagina revealing evidence of prior sexual abuse were:
Dr. Davis Jones,
Dr. Dr. James Monteleon,
Dr. John McCaan,
Dr. Cyril Wecht, and
Dr. Ronald Wright.
There were other experts who agreed that JonBenet suffered prior sexual abuse (prior to the day of the murder). One of these was Dr. Virginia Rau, of Dade County, Florida. Dr. Rau, after studying the autopsy report and the microscopic specimens on slides, said the chronic inflamation had nothing to do with urination issues. The inflamation was from chronic sexual abuse.
