    Note Clues

    It is well understood that the most critical piece of evidence in the case is the "note" Patsy Ramsey claims she found on the stairs. Setting the "handwriting" aside - let's look at the abundance of other clues the writer gave us in writing that note.

    One came to my attention today in browsing through the Ramsey's own book.

    Patsy is talking about a "message of appreciation" she and John wrote and had printed on the back of the liturgy program for the Dec. 1997 rememberance service held for JonBenet in Boulder.

    Patsy writes (pg. 234): "In composing this expression of appreciation, John and I had each written a version. With both copies in hand, John dictated and I typed at the computer as we merged the two into one."

    Whoa. Here we have PROOF that John and Patsy practiced John dictating and Patsy writing!! Just as has been suspected in the writing of the "ransom" note.

    Again - it is not just "one" thing that points to the Ramseys as the author's of that note, but a combination of things. To the point of rendering the suggestion of some stranger/intruder/kidnapper/pedophile as the author as
    simply ridiculous.

    We of course also have the now well-known clues such as: "and hence", the
    ransom demand of $118,000 (same as John's bonus that year), the use of the word "gentlemen" which Patsy and her family use and she also uses in her
    book (pg. 57), the familiar term "John" departing from the intial "Mr. Ramsey",
    the frequent departure from the use of "we" to "I", the use of the term used in the family "use that good southern common sense", the use of the term
    "fat cat" (Patsy's dad used the word "cats" when referring to others too),
    the phrases used to "be well rested", "bring an adequate sized attache',
    and the sheer extreme length of the note suggesting panic and desperation on the part of the note writer to DIVERT attention away from what would be so very obvious as to who caused the death of JonBenet.

    And they wonder why they are not removed from under the umbrella of suspicion.
    This post is my opinion.

    The new prosecutor HAS removed them from the "umbrella of suspicion". No one wants to hear that though.

    My 2 cents.

    What prosecutor? Have I missed something? Please enlighten us as to where they have been removed from that "umbrella of suspicion" NOBODY in the Ramsey family has been removed from that umbrella officially.

    If you can show us where they are removed, please share

    Thanks

    She has? What have I missed? Do you have a source/quote you could post? I'd like to read that.

    Well I'm not sure if she has said all the words but the "newer" DA Mary Keenan is convinced of intruder theory... Here's a couple of links

    http://www.longmontfyi.com/ramsey/st...il02.asp?ID=36

    http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...914253,00.html

    http://www.dailyiowan.com/news/2003/...e-413774.shtml

    Mary's beliefs and point of views are enough to believe she is NOT looking at the Ramsey's at all.

    I've always supported the Intruder theory, which I know is not popular here but I still feel there is enough evidence to support it. How can certain things be tossed aside? I don't understand how people want to convict these people period. There are SO MANY cases where children have been kidnapped from their bedroom, raped & murdered. I just think that this house was big enough that the perp didn't have to remove her. Easier to run away without a body.

    Another 2 cents of mine

    Interesting...John dictating and Patsy writing the note.

    We are a group of individuals that represent...Johns use of the word "that" is all over his writings...his book DOI and his statements.

    The word Victory...Johns word.

    "Fat Cats"...John's reference to his friends "The Atlanta Fat Cats"

    If you want your daughter to see 1997...Patsy's 1996 Christmas letter..."Burke will be seeing the orthodontist in 1997"...instead of "next year".

    Don't underestimate us...Patsy in her book DOI is talking about JonBenets first pageant and her concern about how she would do. Patsy says, "I underestimated her."

    Patsy is speaking about Judith Phillips' frequent talk show appearances and she has this to say: "We were in the midst of a serious murder investigation and did not feel compelled to share our investigative tactics or our excruciating pain with the press and public.

    Patsy is speaking about JonBenet's Christmas ornament, a gift to Patsy for Christmas and is worried that it has become lost..."But Trip DeMuth assured me they had it in their possession."

    All one has to do is read DOI and you will know who dictated/wrote the ransom letter.

    IMO
    ...We have said to ourselves, look, there is never going to be a victory in this, there is no victory...John Ramsey: 6/24/98

    Yes you are right. But HOW MANY of them also had a ransom note written by their mother?

    "Mary" is not the one doing the investigating. That person's name is "Tom".
    Additionally, "Mary" is nothing but a stooge left over from the Hunter follies. "Mary" thought that "Santa" was the perp.

    I agree Toltec that the Ramseys gave us even more confirming clues about the note by writing a book in their own words. 391 pages of it.

    The motivation behind writing that note was the same as the motivation behind writing that book. A COMPULSION to get others to believe what they wanted them to believe - and steer them away from the truth.

    John Ramsey gives clues to how he likes to "stretch" the truth in his own words in his book. Example: (pg. 270) "Who had drawn that heart? The killer?
    JonBenet? I doubted that my daughter had done so. Certainly as a younger child she might have drawn things on her hand, but at almost seven years old she was beyond that stage."
    HUH???? "As a YOUNGER child?" Younger than 6? Who is he trying to kid here?
    And for him to claim that JonBenet was "almost 7 years old" is nothing short of a bald face LIE. She wasn't even 6 1/2 yet! She would not even have her 7th birthday for 8 months!
    Funny how his son Burke was only 3 WEEKS shy of 10 yrs old, yet he insisted on calling HIM "9" yrs old. Distancing Burke from that older "10" yrs old.
    So depending on what John's goal was - he had no problem in stretching truth
    when it was convenient.
    Trouble is - he reveals himself as very inconsistent and therefore his word cannot be trusted.
    Patsy does the same thing in her practice of minimizing those things that made them look bad. For instance the pageants were just a "few Sunday afternoons." We know that was total B.S.

    A wise philosophy professor once said this: "There are two kinds of people; those who want (respect) the TRUTH - and those who want to be "consoled."

    We know where the Ramseys fall.
    This post is my opinion.

    I agree the note is important because it shows it was written by a juvenile.

    The note has young male written all over it. It's ridiculous length; its shock movie adages; its unnecessary threats; its bizarre amount for a ransom demand; its immature foreign terrorist theme; and its transparent reason (diversion) for being written in the first place, all point to a young male as the writer.

    For instance, why would John or Patsy ask for $118,000 as a ransom demand, knowing that was John's bonus figure for the year? Would they add that as a deliberate clue and play games with a trip to death row? Of course not.

    As for the language used in DOI, forget it. Unless it's a direct quote, the writing in the book is the work of Thomas Nelson Publishers.

    IMO neither John nor Patsy had anything to do with the writing of the note. And the six handwriting examiners used by the CBI agree it is highly unlikely John or Patsy wrote it.

    But both parents are up to their chins in doo doo with their coverup to protect Burke and perhaps one or two others who may have written the note.

    You have to be kidding me! It was John or Patsy's idea to use his bonus amount as the ransom demand to point the crime at someone involved closely in John's business. Remember that the note also said they didn't like "your business". John had to be linked somehow to the "foreign faction" - it's not like a group of foreign terrorists would have been the least bit interested in a softball-playing pageant mom!....LOL

    The evidence is clear that Patsy wrote the note. Nobody else could have written that note and matched so many of her exemplars as shown in the file listed in my sig. below.

    Figure it out, BlueCrab. Patsy writing the note fits just fine in your Burke/Doug theory.

    Shylock,

    The ransom note said it was from a small foreign faction, and does not suggest it's also from an emplyee at Access Graphics. However, a $118,000 ransom demand makes no sense no matter how you slice it. Only the reasoning of children would produce such a small and bizarre number. Any adult would have known to ask for at least $1 million.

    Incidentally Shylock, your URL at the bottom of your posts doesn't work.

    I think John and Patsy chose the ransom note figure of $118,000 to implicate their friends and business associates, hoping LE would think the perp was a Ramsey acquaintence trying to pass himself or herself off as a member of a small foreign faction. If that didn't work and LE tried to track down the sff, fine. The idea behind so many different "clues" in the note was to send LE on a wild goose chase.

    John told LE right away he thought it was an "inside job." This was even before JonBenet's body was found, but there was John, already pointing the finger at his friends and trying to plant the idea that the small foreign faction could be a ruse.

    IMO

    Ivy, it's true John said it looked like an inside job, but that could also have meant to make investigators look in the opposite direction of a small foreign faction because John KNEW the note was from a small foreign faction -- namely the Asian Pacific American Coalition (APAC). IMO the note was already written when the Ramseys discovered the body. Perhaps the clues in the note pointing to APAC were too obvious for John so he had to do something about it.

    It's not my main theory re' Burke, but if John knew that Nathan or someone else from APAC had been snuck into the house that night by Burke, then he had to cover up that fact as well as cover up for Burke or the truth would pour out. John's main goal was likely to hide the embarrassment attached to a close family member's death due to erotic asphyxiation. It's a common behavior among family members when there's an EA or AEA death because of the perceived negative impact on the family's business and social reputations.

    In this BDI theory, the teenage college student, even if identified, could not be prosecuted without violating Colorado law preventing the disclosure of an underage accomplice's name in a serious crime. It was determined to be an accident so IMO the GJ, the D.A. and the court resolved the matter in another way -- of which we aren't fully aware.

    The $118,000 figure is more than just a ridiculously low number, it's a number with a purpose. It was put in the ransom note to point the crime into John's business which had foreign affairs. As Ivy points out, right away JR told the police it had to be "an inside job". JR also pointed the finger at Jeff Merrick from Access Graphics as soon as he could.
    More importantly, JR played "stupid" and didn't tell anyone the $118,000 was his bonus amount.

    Tell me, BlueCrab, what kind of a man, a CEO of a billion dollar corporation, wouldn't know what he received in compensation?

    JR, Patsy, (or both) knew that sooner or later the police would discover the amount was JR's bonus, and that would mean someone with inside knowledge of Access Graphics was the perp.
