Here is something no one talks about. This is not the definition of a sham and a duvet, as any homemaker knows. We've been told a comforter was in the suitcase. Now, what was really in the suitcase and why? Has it been ruled out as having anything to do with the killer's/kidnapper's plans or not? This is from a 1998 interview with John Ramsey and Lou Smit. Both Smit and Ramsey are wrong about what a sham is and what a duvet is. What else might everyone wrong about? PS for anyone who doesn't know, a sham is a pillow case for show only that is taken off at night and not slept on. A duvet is a comforter or quilt with a washable cover, sometimes used without a cover, usually down filled and sometimes polyester filled. Is this the same suitcase that was supposedly filled with JBR's sheets? Or was that another suitcase? I ask as this is actual testimony and not tabloid stories. --------- LOU SMIT: And I would like to ask 2 you just some questions. Do you know what a 3 sham is or a duvet? 4 JOHN RAMSEY: (Shaking head). 5 LOU SMIT: Two type of things? 6 JOHN RAMSEY: Sham is a blanket, 7 right? But duvet, I don't know. 8 LOU SMIT: Do you recall any shams 9 or duvets being in your house? I know if you 10 don't know what a duvet is, you probably don't 11 know to say it was in there but -- 12 JOHN RAMSEY: No, I don't. 13 A sham, I mean I don't know if I 14 know what a sham was, a small blanket. That's 15 purely a guess, but we had lots of little 16 blankets and stuff like that around. 17 LOU SMIT: How about a Dr. Suess 18 book, do you remember anything in a Dr. Suess 19 book, either associated with John Andrew or 20 associated with JonBenet or anything that -- 21 JOHN RAMSEY: Well, we had lots of 22 kids' books. We had bookshelves full of them. 23 I know that they had -- I know I read to 'em, 24 Dr. Suess books, so I am sure they were there. 25 LOU SMIT: Do you know why there 0714 1 would be a sham and duvet and a Dr. Suess book 2 in that suitcase? 3 JOHN RAMSEY: Could you tell me 4 what a duvet is? 5 LOU SMIT: A duvet is also 6 something that fits on like on a couch or almost 7 a little blanket that fits on a couch. 8 JOHN RAMSEY: A square or does it 9 fit? 10 LOU SMIT: Yes. I have never seen 11 this, I don't have a photograph of it, but can 12 you think of why there would be a sham or duvet 13 in John Andrew's suitcase along with a Dr. Suess 14 book? 15 JOHN RAMSEY: No. My recollection 16 of where that suitcase came from was he brought 17 some clothes from Atlanta, where he went to 18 school, and when the kid left to go to school be 19 and every port in a storm in his apartment, and 20 it ended up and it was in his room for a while, 21 then it was in the laundry room outside of his 22 room for a while, and then I carried it 23 downstairs. I presumed it was empty.
