Alot of people think that JonBenet's murder went world wide because she died on Christmas. But I don't think that's the reason. When JonBenet first got murdered the police were just going to release the murder case in to local news, but then when they found out she was doing her Beauty Pageants, it shocked and fasinated the nation. No one had ever heard of child beauty pageants before and it made everyone wonder "Why was this little girl dressed up like a young adult performing on stage?" When the press got a hold of the pageant pictures and video tapes her case blew up. If JonBenet was a normal little girl her case would not have been all over news. People wanted to know: Why did JonBenet do them ? Did she like doing them ? Was she forced to do them ? Or did she have enough of doing them ? One of JonBenet classmates said " The only reason why everyone knew about her dying was because her family had alot of money and she did those pageant, if she was just a normal girl I think only a few people would have knew about her dying." Little girls get murdered EVERYDAY and we only hear about it one time in the news and then it goes away. JonBenet's case has been going on for 9 years! Mostly ALL of JonBenet pictures on the front of magazines are of her in her pageant outfits, they never show normal pictures of JonBenet with out make-up or pictures of her being a kid. All over magazine covers & book covers world wide dressed in her pageant outfits and crown she's known as " The little Beauty Queen who got murdered."
