    Remind me.....who did the Ramsey's send Burke away with that day? I cannot remember.

    I think, obviously, PR and JR had to be pretty confident that BR would not say anything to send him away. And he hasn't. Heck, he hasn't even come forward as an adult to discuss how he wants to find the murderer of his sister.

    It was The Whites I believe-I think it was Fleet that drove him over to their house

    You bring up a great point but who's to say that the parents did warn him about talking about what happened, even a child that age can grasp that talking about something could get them in big trouble and I have no problem believing that he would have kept quiet, he has all of these years.

    I totally agree, the authorities were a total wreck on this case. Worse than useless. I also continue to be enraged every time a news outlet or careless commenter claims the Ramseys were "cleared by DNA." :banghead:

    What I've loved about WS since first discovering it during the Casey Anthony case is the commitment to justice by the folks here, the deep compassion for the victims, and the clear-eyed intelligence of the conversations. Much of the public, and apparently all of the media, is content to regurgitate inaccuracies. But not here! Hugs to you all. :loveyou:

    Maybe a good legal mind can interpret this indictment, but I don’t believe it is a slamdunk that it means BR killed his sister. What the juror told Charlie Brennan was they didn't know who did what, but that the parents did something (an active” participation) or they could have prevented something (passive participant explanation).

    This indictment reflects what they could agree on. Here’s a statement from a legal analyst which mirrors my thoughts: From Dan Recht, legal anaylyst (http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnews/ci_24385866/jonben-eacute-t-ramsey-grand-jury-indictment-be) Denver defense attorney and legal analyst Dan Recht said the documents show the conflict within the grand jury.

    "In a sense, they seem to be classic compromise grand jury decision," Recht said. "They can't decide whether to indict on murder. They can't decide not to indict at all. So they compromise in between."

    To me the verbiage within the indictment indicates (regardless of the spin about dna and exoneration) that a jury of peers believed the parents were responsible . . .no matter who did what. moo

    To add: I think Patsy was stressed, tired and/or had been drinking. I think JB had a lengthy history of frustrating and odd behaviors around toileting. I think PR had either known about or had corporal cleaning done to herself in her family history. I think she did it to JB regularly, and it was making JB's behaviors worse, because it is sexually abusive. I think PR maybe went to wake JB up to toilet her, found her already wet, made her go to the BR and take of her wet clothes, wash up, get ready for corporal cleaning...whatever. Either she really hurt JB this time and JB cried out, or lashed out, or refused, or whatever....and she pushed JB, struck JB or manhandled her till she fell, getting her head struck or striking her head.

    The thing about this, though, is that I *think* I read somewhere that Burke had once, on a family vacation or something, hit Jonbenet on the head with a golf club? Does anyone else know about that? If true, then it certainly seems possible he did it again.

    And also, there's the feces covered candy in her room, and the feces pajamas in her closet, also thought to be from Burke. Dude had some problems for sure. He was a disturbed child with a lot of hate for his sister.

    You mean something like finding her mortally wounded by a head wound inflicted by her brother and then deciding instead of seeking medical help to instead stage to scene to look like a sexual assault by an unknown intruder?


    .

    The most interesting to me. Although this release doesn't support my previous #1 theory (PDI) I was never married to which of the R's actually did it and could see arguments for all three.

    But, I have to say, I never considered this to have been premeditated. Certainly not by Burke.

    And didn't both PR and JR bring up Fleet White as the potential murderer at one point? Maybe they did that "in case" BR slipped and said something incriminating to him......just a thought.

    If you were the parent, ask yourself this: If your child did know something you wanted the cops not to know about, where would you rather he say it? In the house full of cops, or at your friends' house (the Whites)?

    He hit her 2 times with a golf club and she had to go to the ER and this happened when BR was only 6 y/o.
    There's also all of the parenting books pointing to them dealing with a sexually aggressive child.

    In retrospect, I think it's pretty telling that when Colorado Bureau of Investigation set up their Cold Cases website, they "forgot" to include JonBenet's murder on it. Then when they finally put it up on the website, all it says is "JonBent Ramsey was found in the basement of her house. Cause of death was asphyxia." (Yes, they spelled her first name wrong.) If authorities thought that someone who couldn't be prosecuted committed this homicide, that might explain why they initially didn't put it on their website. The CBI could be in a potentially difficult position if they feel like a non-prosecutable minor committed this crime, because it's not like they can just come out and say "We think such-and-such 9 year old did this", but on the other hand it looks strange to be still investigating a crime you think you solved. (but you can't tell the public you solved it) You know what I mean?

    So what does this all mean? What was the purpose of releasing these documents? Will the case be reopened or will it remain a cold case forever?:scared:

    There was nothing special or sophisticated about the knot. IMO I sure it was a "Ramsey expert" that claimed it was some sort of extravagant monkey fist of a knot. It wasn't. Look at it yourself.

    I forgot to add that the injury did not appear to be from a fall, they believed it was some type of object was used to strike her with, the police found a flashlight that the R's claimed wasn't theirs that had been wiped clean and the batteries had been replaced, I think that the flashlight was used to strike her on the head.

    Oh. I think she hit her in the head with the flashlight.

    LOL was posting at the same time as the Dragon above lol! Yes, I bet PR used the flashlight on her nightly rounds to potty her daughter.

    Was her brother ever named a suspect? I do NOT believe that any of that family had anything to do with this... other than trusting a closet pedophile. So sad for the brother... he was only 9 years old. I wish they had released all evidence that report didn't say much to me. I guess the DNA will continue to be overlooked.
