Documents related to the JonBenet Ramsey case will be made public Friday, according to CNN on Oct. 24. The information will be comprised of 18 pages of information that had been part of the grand jury case in 1999.
Though the grand jury reportedly wanted to indict John and Patsy Ramsey on charges of child abuse resulting in death, the district attorney did not go forward with the case. He felt they did not have sufficient evidence to file charges. Nobody has ever been charged in Jon Benet Ramsey's death.
Judge J. Robert Lowenbach has ordered that nine pages related to John Ramsey and nine pages related to Patsy Ramsey will be released. Though there are many who still believe John and Patsy Ramsey had something to do with their daughter's death, they were never charged. In 2008 then-District Attorney Mary Lacy indicated to John Ramsey that DNA evidence had cleared the family of any involvement.
John Ramsey's attorney asked the judge to release either none of the documents or all of them. The attorney, Harold Haddon, says that “Public release of the allegations of an unprosecuted indictment only serves to further defame (John Ramsey) and his late wife Patricia Ramsey.” The action is being taken because the Boulder Daily Camera sued to have the indictment unsealed.
It seems unlikely that the document release will do anything to further the case, but will it dampen the public speculation that the Ramsey's were involved in their daughter's death? Will the JonBenet Ramsey case ever be solved?
