While most RDIs see Patsy involved in the killing of her daughter, opinions vary when it comes to John. The gamut ranges from John being totally clueless (S. Thomas' theory for ex.) to theories where John had been the abuser and possibly also the killer of JohnBenet. I personally don't believe that a hysterical person like Patsy would have had the nerve to pull through all that staging (including the ransom note) alone. I believe John helped her, but why? When reading the exchange between the Ramseys and Steve Thomas on Larry King Live, I had the feeling that John would do anything for Patsy ("right or wrong, my country!" - right or wrong, "my wife" for that matter). It could be love, it could be guilty feelings on his part, and it could be that he has enough skeletons in his closet himself (dirty business dealings for example) which Patsy knows about, and maybe that's why he is covering up for her now. Another motive for John to help Patsy could be that he did not want her to go to jail, leaving Burke without a mother. Fear of being ostracized by society could also have been a motive. "The damage was already done, nobody would bring JB back, but maybe the police will believe our story." Interesting point, UKGUY. But still it is strange that John who was inconsolable at the death of his oldest daughter Beth, showed so little reaction at JonBenet's death. John Ramsey is a dark horse. We know so little about his inner life. He kept a picture of his eldest daughter Beth (who had died in an automobile accident) in his private bathroom. Is this harmless or weird?
