This paper analyzes and examines the multitude of issues related to the JonBenet Ramsey murder case. JonBenet Ramsey was a six-year-old girl from Boulder, Colorado, murdered on Christmas Day in 1996.

The paper outlines the major elements of the case, including the facts surrounding the murder and the evidence collected. The paper then evaluates the published statements of material witnesses. It also examines the arguments of a former Boulder Police investigator and his suspicions regarding the identity of the killer. Lastly, this paper concludes with preliminary summarizations and recommendations for further investigation.
“A month later, Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter identified the Ramseys as “the obvious focus of the investigation.” A year after JonBenet’s murder, police basically had two theories about the case: (1) that someone entered the Ramseys’ house through unknown means, possibly sexually abused then brutally, yet silently, killed JonBenet, hid her body, took the time to write a long ransom note, then left unheard and unseen; or (2) that someone who was in the house that night committed the horrible crime.”
