"In April 1997, Ellis Armistead, an investigator hired by the Ramseys, would tell the police that there were twenty more extra keys outstanding. In the end, however, the detective could find only nine poeple who said they had keys. Six of the keys were returned. Three were missing. The Police soon learned that the front door locked automatically when it closed."

Page 20:

"Another tech saw the ransom note on the bottom step of the spiral staircase and photographed it there.
But the photograph lied. The note had traveled from the stairs, possibly into Patsy's hands, then had been spread out on the hallway floor where John Ramsey and the police had read it, and French had put it back on the stairs. The photograph, which was suppose to show exactly where evidence had been discovered, was inaccurate."

04-18-2000 Steve Thomas, "JonBenet, Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation"

Page 57:

"Gosage and I interviewed twenty-year-old John Andrew Ramsey. He was a lanky young man with dark eyes and short dark hair, who wore a checkered shirt, a winter jacket, and an attitude. When the blood tech moved close with her needle, the former Eagle Scout, who was now a third-semester sophomore at the University of Colorado whispered, 'I may pass out.'"

"Although he also claimed to have been in Atlanta when the crime occured, we had to check him out because of the neighbor who had reported seeing him on Christmas Day. We had to determine who was right."

"We asked him to put his thoughts on paper, and he wrote a document that brimmed with feelings about his little stepsister being murdered, giving us a glimpse into his world. He caught our attention immediately by writing,
'I think it was someone that had intimate knowledge of my family and how we lived day to day. Why would they leave the ransom note on the back staircase instead of the front?"

"We were then brought up to date on a new discovery.
Crime scene techs at the house had recoverd three Sharpie felt-tip pens from on orange metal container on the kitchen counter beneath the telephone from which Patsy had made her 911 call, not far from where the ransom note tablet was found."

"U.S. Secret Service eventually determined that
one of those pens, a pre-November 1992 water-based ink Sharpie, was used to write both the practice and actual ransom notes. The Secret Service, which maintains a hugh database on inks because of its federally mandated assignment ot chase forgers, told us, "the ink 'on the note' is unique in the collection of approximately 7,000 standards from the Ink Library."

"That meant that whoever wrote the notes used the exact pen from that cup. They not only left the pad behind but, when they finished, neatly put the felt-tip pen in its container."

Patsy called them to come to the house the morning JonBenet was kidnapped. Fleet White was with John Ramsey when he found the body but White had been to the same basement room earlier that same morning and did not see JonBenet's body.

JonBenet's Bed


04-18-2000 Steve Thomas, "JonBenet, Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation"

Page 19:

"Reichenbach and John Ramsey went up to the second floor to look into missing child's bedroom. Two beds were parallel and about three feet apart. One was made, and the other's peach comforter was pulled back toward a pillow at the foot, exposing a white fitted sheet printed with cartoon characters. A small blue fanny pack was looped over a bedpost, a white steamer trunk gaped slightly, and a large Christmas tree decorated with angels and snowflakes stood beside green curtains and
a closed door to a covered balcony that was glazed with undisturbed frost. Dolls and clothes lay abut the room. Folding closet doors on the opposite wall stood open, revealing more clothes on hangers and in heaps. Strewn amid the toys were trophies and little tiaras. On a wall above a white chest of drawers was a formal portrait of the missing girl, a beautiful child with a bright smile, chin resting on lace-gloved hands."

"The father lifted the dust ruffle to peer beneath his daughter's bed and was told not to touch anything else. They left the room as a telephone rang, and Ramsey answered, 'JonBenet's been kidnapped,' he said and began crying. The lights were off in the nearby bedroom of the second child, and Reichenbach looked in on Burke Ramsey, who appeared sleep, then closed that door."

"The investigators spent a great deal of time talking with me about a large diagram of the house on the wall behind me. I later learned that they also used the same diagram with Patsy. I was shocked to see that they had found the butler kitchen door, which led to the outside, open. This was reported by one of our friends when he arrived shortly after six in the morning. I'd never even noticed that open door as we frantically rushed around making phone calls, and yet there on the police diagram of our home was the note: "Door found open."

John Ramsey left the house that morning to check the outside side door by the garage. He stated, "I went out the side door around to the back of the garage to see if that garage door into the garage was locked."

When John Fernie arrived he stated (from testimony at Miller trial) that he went to the glass door leading to the kitchen at back of house and saw the note laying on the floor inside the door. Fernie said, "It was inside the door and I was outside. The door was locked. I read it through the door"

1997 January 30 thru February 5, 1997, at 12:10 P.M. Search Warrant - Boulder Police Department

"Through official police reports and conversations with other members of the Boulder Police Department, including commissioned officers Linda Arndt, Michael Everett, Rick French, Tom Trujillo and Larry Mason. Your Affiant personally learned the following from those officers:

On December 26, 1996, at approximately 5:52 a.m., Boulder Police Officers Karl Veitch and Rick French responded to 755 15th St, Boulder, Colorado, regarding a possible kidnapping. The residence of 755 15th St., John and Patsy Ramsey, informed the officers of the following:

The Ramsey's reside at 755 15th St., and are the parents of JonBenet Ramsey, who is six years old.

This morning at approximately 5:45 a.m., Patsy Ramsey discovered that JonBenet Ramsey was missing from the residence. JonBenet was last seen by Patsy Ramsey in the residence at approximately 10:00 p.m. December 25th.
According to Officers French and Veitch there were no obvious signs of forcible entry into their residence and the Ramsey's believed that the house was locked when they went to bed."

Your Affiant, through Boulder Regional Communications Center Dispatch, was advised at approximately 1:05 p.m. on December 26th, 1996, that the body of JonBenet Ramsey was discovered in the basement of 755 15th St., Boulder, Boulder County, State of Colorado. Your Affiant personally met with BPD Detective Linda Arndt. Det. Arndt personally provided Your Affiant with the following information:

Det. Arndt had been inside the residence located at 755 15th St. Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado from approximately 0800 hours until 1435 hours on December 26, 1996. Det. Arndt had been called out to respond to this residence earlier this morning on the report of the 6 year old female child at this residence who had reportedly been kidnapped. There was no sign of forced entry to this residence. The female child, JonBenet Ramsey, had last been seen by her father, John Ramsey, at approximately 2200 hours on December 25, 1996. This information had personally been told to Det. Arndt by John Ramsey. JonBenet had last been seen in her bed. JonBenet's bedroom is located on the second floor of the residence. According to John Ramsey, the only persons at this residence from approximately 2200 hours on December 25, 1996 until 0545 hours on December 26 were: John Ramsey (father of JonBenet); Patricia "Patsy" Ramsey (mother of JonBenet); and Burke Ramsey (11 year old brother of JonBenet). When Det. Arndt arrived at the Ramsey residence, persons present included: John Ramsey, Patsy Ramsey, Priscilla and Fleet White (friends of the family), Barbara and John Fernie (friends of the family), the pastor from St. John's Episcopalian Church (1400 block in Boulder), BPD officers Rick French and Barry Weiss. Officer French personally told Det. Arndt that the White's and the Fernie's had been phoned by either John or Patsy Ramsey shortly after the note was found and had immediately come over to the Ramsey residence. The pastor also responded to the Ramsey residence shortly after the note was found.



1997 January 30 thru February 5, 1997, at 12:10 P.M. Search Warrant - Boulder Police Department

"Detective Arndt monitored incoming phone calls to the Ramsey residence from approximately 0800 - 1300 hours. John Ramsey answered the incoming phone calls. None of the incoming calls were from the reported kidnappers."

NE Book Page 128:

Steve Thomas: "So the morning of the 26th do you recall checking all the doors, and they were locked?"

John Ramsey: "I believe I checked all the first-floor doors, yeah. I did go out once. I went out to the door that leads into the garage to see if it was locked becaue there's a bunch of boxes piled in front of it and you couldn't get to it from the inside of the garage.
So I did, infact, go out of the house once, which would have been for, you know, half a minute."

Steve Thomas: "And that was from where to where?"

John Ramsey:
"I went out the side door around to the back of the garage to see if that garage door into the garage was locked."

Steve Thomas: "And then immediately back into the house?"

John Ramsey: "Yeah."

Steve Thomas: "And that wasn't an excursion that exceeded 30 seconds?"

John Ramsey: "No, at max"

"'Snow at Ramsey House Lacked Footprints' by Charlie Brennan, Rocky Mountain News, March 11, 1997, 'Police who went to JonBenet Ramsey's home the morning she was reported missing
found no footprints in the snow surrounding the house, sources said Monday. This is one of the earliest details that caused investigators to focus their attention on the slain girls family, police sources said.'"

"Perfect Murder, Perfect Town


(PMPT Page 236):

"John Fernie was angry when he read Charlie Brennan's story about footprints. Like many media storeis, this one fame from an unnamed source and made the Ramseys look guilty. Fernie wondered if the souce was provided the reporter with all the facts.
He knew that his own footprints were there in the snow that morning. He had driven up the back alley to the Ramseys' house just after 6:00 A.M. in response to Patsys' frantic call that terrible morning. He remembered walking along the brick sidewalk to the patio door, looking through the glass panel, and reading a line or two of the ransom note, which was lying on the floor just inside the door. Then he ran through the snow-covered grass, around the south side of the house, to the front door. If the cops had been looking, they would have found his footprints. A year and half after JonBenet's death, Fernie told a reporter that the police still had not checked the shoes he wore that day, though a shoe imprint had been discovered next to JonBenet's body."



1999 May 30 - Taped copy of 911 call given to Ramsey family - Brother of JonBenet is heard on recording when parents said he was asleep, report says - News Staff

"Patsy and John Ramsey have been given a copy of a 911 tape that apparently contradicts some of their statements to police, Newsweek is reporting in its June 7 issue. The tape was made Dec. 26, 1996 -- the morning that the Ramseys' daughter, JonBenet, was reported missing. She was found dead hours later in the basement of the family's Boulder home. The Ramseys told police that their son Burke was asleep when Patsy Ramsey called 911 at 5:52 a.m. that morning. But his voice can be heard on the tape, according to published reports. Burke Ramsey was called before the Boulder grand jury, which has been investigating JonBenet's murder since last fall. Shortly before Burke Ramsey's testimony, a judge ordered Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter to turn over a copy of the tape to the Ramseys, Newsweek reported. In Colorado, a person testifying before a grand jury is allowed to see any "prior statement" he or she made."

I slam the phone back into its cradle on the wall. Got to have someone here, I think. I dial the Fernies' number. "We need help!" I scream "Please come over here!" I take another deep breath and grab the phone again from it's cradle, dialing the Whites this time. "JonBenet's missing!" I yell into the phone. "Please get over here. We need you!

2000 March 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 NBC News Today Show Interview with John and Patsy Ramsey

COURIC: And yet some things just don't make sense. There are no clear signs of forced entry, leading police to suspect the killer was no stranger. They also think the ransom note is bogus. Who would take the time to write a three-page note at the scene of the crime and risk being caught? And then there's the question of the 911 call. You called 911 at 5:52. Burke was asleep. And yet the tape of the 911, as you all know, was enhanced in a lab and revealed a conversation in the background, apparently, between you, John, and your son Burke.

Mr. RAMSEY: OK...

COURIC: How you do explain this?

Mr. RAMSEY:
The facts are that Patsy and I told the police that Burke, to our knowledge, was asleep and had been asleep until I got him up to go to Fleet White's house later that morning.

COURIC: So do you think this tape was somehow doctored or misinterpreted or what?

Ms. RAMSEY:
I think it is.

Mr. RAMSEY:
I don't know.

Ms. RAMSEY: It is.

Mr. RAMSEY:
I--we've--we've never been allowed to hear it.

"With little traffic on the roads an hour before sunrise, Officer Rick French got to the house on University Hill within minutes. His mere arrival was the first of many mistakes that police would make in the comming hours. An unmarked car or undercover officers should have responded to the kidnapping call, not a black-and-white,
but French had no idea of the warnings in the ransom note."



04-18-2000 Steve Thomas, "JonBenet, Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation"

Page 18-19:

(Referencing Sergeant Reichenbach) "He called for more officers, crime scene techicians to search for evidence, and victim advocates to comfort and help the Ramseys, alerted the phone company to put a trap on the Ramsey telephone; and notified the on-call detective supervisor, Sergeant Bob Whitson. Further radio traffic was ordered to cease to prevent the kidnappers from picking up police broadcasts with a scanner. Communication would be by phone, and therefore less effective."

"The sergeant found no evidence of forced entry during a walk through the house, then went outside. A light dusting of snow and frost lay atop an earlier crusty snow in spotty patches on the grass. He saw no fresh show impressions, found no open doors or windows, nothing to indicate a break-in, but walking on the driveway and sidewalks left no visible prints. It was frigid, about nine degrees, and Reichenbach returned inside."

"He went down into the sprawling basement and walked through it.
At the far end was a white door secured at the top by a block of wood that pivoted on a screw. Reichenbach tried to open the door, stopped when he felt resistance, then returned upstairs. Reichenbach, Officer French, and one of the friends Patsy had called, Fleet White, would all check that white door in the basement during the morning, and White would even open it. They found nothing."



04-18-2000 Steve Thomas, "JonBenet, Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation"

Page 25:

"Detective Arndt asked Ramsey, White, and Fernie for the opinions of the ransom note. White and Fernie commented that it seemed to reveal a familiarity with John Ramsey. The use of such words as hence and attache indicated the writer was educated. John Ramsey had little to say aobut it and was unusually quiet. None had any idea what SBTC meant."

"In the sunroom, Patsy Ramsey examined a second-generation photocopy of the ransom note, a smeary version that showed little more than the dark printed words. Rather than commenting on the words and content, she told one of the her firends that the note was written on the same kind of paper she had in the kitchen."



04-18-2000 Steve Thomas, "JonBenet, Inside the Ramsey Murder Investigation"

Page 57:

"John Andrew also buttressed the comments of the housekeeper's husband, Mervin Pugh, and former nanny Suzanne Savage about the house being difficult to navigate.
"You don't know your way around real easy right off the bat....You have to open lots of doors. It was lots of ups and downs,' and the basement entrance was hard to find. It was becoming very clear to the police just how difficult it would have been for any stranger to get to that distance basement storage room."

an FBI agent was at the house shortly after the body was found, the FBI was in the bpd sitroom during the morning while it was being investigated as a kidnapping. FBI wa sin early, despite Ramsey assertions otherwise"

crimeADM: "Did you hear the 911 tape personally; and if so, once and for all, was Burke on it?"

stevethomas:
"I heard the 911 tape. repeatedly, as did the other detectives. the consensus was unanimous, as supported by the enhancement -- there is a 3rd voice on the tape, appears to be Burke (unless there was someone else present who has never been identified...)"

crimeADM: "A follow-up to the 911 question: Many people swear they heard the tape on one talk-show or another. Is there any possibility that this happened?"

stevethomas: "as far as i know, the only people who heard the tape were involved in the investigation -- da's office people, bpd personnel, engineers who enhanced it. if someone is out on the talk shows saying they heard it, who is this/these person(s)?"




2001 April 3 - National Enquirer Interview with John and Patsy Ramsey

"When asked when Burke woke up, John said it was after Patsy discovered the ransom note shortly after 5:30 a.m. Then he quickly changed his answer to say Burke woke up after the 911 call. But then John changed his story again, calling The ENQUIRER as we went to press to say that Burke was awake BEFORE the 911 call. John told us. "Burke recalled his mother screaming, 'Where's my baby?' and me saying, 'Calm down, calm down, we need to call the police.'" But Patsy still insists: "When I made that phone call, Burke Ramsey was nowhere in the vicinity of the telephone."

John Fernie: "I drove my car into the -- up the alley and parked in the back of your house, and went around to the patio door, which was a glass door leading into the kitchen and back of the house, and didn't see anybody, but saw a piece of paper laying on the floor. Looked at that. It was facing the other direction. Read it. And after the first few lines realized something very strange was happening. And so I ran around to the front of the house and knocked on the door and was let in."

John Fernie: "I didn't pick it up.

John Fernie:

John Fernie: "My recollection is that later in the day, when we were waiting for phone calls from the supposed kidnappers, we were sitting in the back room with a detective and trying to figure out what the note meant.
