Almost twenty years after the notorious murder of six-year old pageant queen, JonBenét Ramsey, a group of experts have teamed up to reexamine the unsolved mystery in a chilling four-hour, The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey. Unlike traditional crime docuseries, which rely entirely on the original team of investigators, this series will also introduce an elite group of new specialists using advanced forensics technology and even a life-size replica of the Ramsey home to shed some new light on the case. “We’re this close, it’s just a matter of getting a group of people together like ourselves to put it all together and put it to rest,” statement analyst, Stan Burke, says in the trailer.
The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét Ramsey
On December 26 1996, police were alerted by JonBenét’s mother, Patricia “Patsy” Ramsey, of her daughter’s disappearance and the discovery of a two-and-a-half-page ransom letter addressed to her husband, John Ramsey, demanding $118,000 for her safe return. JonBenét’s body however, was discovered later that day in the basement cellar of her Boulder, Colorado home about seven hours after the 911 call. The autopsy report revealed that the official cause of death was asphyxiation due to strangulation. Initially, JonBenét’s parents and her nine-year old brother, Burke, were suspects, but in 2008, the family was exonerated in light of new DNA evidence. In the nearly twenty years since her death, no charges were ever filed and her murder remains a mystery.
“We hope to get the truth out about how she died; she’s not gotten justice yet,” says Jim Clemente, an FBI investigator who worked on the original case and is among the team of specialist hoping to find out what really happened to JonBenét on December 26, 1996.
Determined to solve the mystery and get justice for the deceased six-year old pageant queen, this team of experts will take a deeper dive into key pieces of evidence. They believe that with the help of new technological advancements, they can finally solve the case. “Each piece of evidence, we’re going to extract and then we’re going to analyze it,” says Dr. Henry Lee who is a world-renowned forensic scientist that also worked on the O.J. Simpson case.
“This little girl’s homicide to this day has been unresolved. In my opinion, I think we can change that right now,” says retired FBI special agent, Jim Fitzgerald.
