"Very early Thursday morning, Gary Merriman, vice president of human resources at Ramsey's firm, Access Graphics, was already at his desk trying to finish some work in the postholiday lull.

"Hello, it's John," the voice said when Merriman answered his phone.
"Good Morning, Merry Christmas," Gary said to his boss. There was a moment of silence. "What's wrong?" Merriman asked
"My daughter's been kidnapped," Ramsey said
"Oh my God, Which one?"

Less than an hour later, Detectives Jim Byfield and Michael Everett were in Merriman's office asking if anyone had ever made threats against the company. Did John Ramsey have enemies? Disgruntle employees? Merriman mentioned Jeff Merrick, an old friend of John Ramsey's who had been laid off, and Sandra Henderson, who owed Access Graphics a large sum of money."

"Earlier, at 1:30 P.M., the phone in Gary Merriman’s office at Access Graphics rang. It was John Ramsey. He seemed close to tears.

"We found her little body. She's been murdered," Ramsey said
Merriman, too, began to cry.

When the police showed up at Merriman's office an hour later, for the second time that day, they grilled him. Who are you? What's your relationship to John Ramsey? Do you know of anybody with connections to a foreign country who might have a grudge against the company? Against Ramsey? Who are the key players at Access Graphics?

Merriman felt he had become a suspect. For the next five weeks, not only would the firm's computers be searched but as many as thirty employees would be questioned."

"Several days later, Thomas and Gosage returned to Access Graphics and interviewed Gary Merriman again. A month later, Merriman would be asked by police to write the figure 118,000 over and over again, although he was never asked if he knew the amount of John Ramsey's bonus for the year. He did. It was within pennies of $118,000. After his seventh handwriting sample, Merriman felt he'd written enough to fill the Library of Congress. "If you need more, come back with handcuffs," Merriman told the detectives. That was when they said they didn't think he'd killed JonBenet but that he might have written the note."

"I call Gary Merriman, our human resources director at Access Graphics, trying to get the names, address, and phone numbers of recently released employees for the police. Now Gary is aware of what is going on in our home."

"Later in the afternoon of the twenty-seventh, I got a call at the Fernies' from Gary Merriman, our human resources director at Access Graphics. He said he had received a call from someone inside the system who told him that I should get the best criminal defense attorney I could, as soon as possible.

"Why?" I asked incredulously. "Do they consider me a suspect?"

"I don't know," he answered. "That's the only information I can give you."

"Finally Gary Merriman, the head of human resources, let us know that our questions were interfering with the running of a billion-dollar business, and they kicked us out, citing concerns over "trade secrets" and "liability." Our further requests were met with stony replies, all though they professed continued cooperation. But in reality we were told to get a search warrant or a court order.

We posted a sign-up sheet for them to come down to police head-quarters and talk to us in an interrogation room. The interviews with Access employees continued throughout January, sometimes helpful, sometimes hostile, and turned up nothing"
