June 1998 John Ramsey Interrogation by Lou Smit and Mike Kane (Glen Meyer Questions)

18 JOHN RAMSEY: Yeah. The Fernies, John and
19 Barbara Fernie. Priscilla and Fleet White. And, of
20 course, their children; both the Fernie's children
21 I think were there. Priscilla's sister and
22 boyfriend who's this fellow. I don't remember what
23 his name is, from California, was there.
24 I can look at the picture and remember some people
25 who were there. Say Don Paugh, Patsy's father. I

1 think that's Glen Stine, Susan and Glen Stine.
2 There's Priscilla there. I think that's
3 Priscilla's mother. Her father, I think, was
4 there. That's Betty Barnhill, I believe, from
5 across the street.
6 The Barnhills,
somebody came looking for the
7 Barnhills later in the evening, knocked on the
8 door. I let him in, he said he was looking for Joe
9 and Betty, eh was worried about them. I said, well
10 they're in the next room and we invited him in and
11 we made him feel at home. I think we learned later
12 that he was a tenant they had living in the
13 basement. But he was there for a while.
14 LOU SMIT: What do you know about him?
15 JOHN RAMSEY: Nothing. I had no idea they
16 even had a tenant over there. That's the first
17 time I had ever seen him. I thought he was just a
18 guest from out of town.


June 1998 John Ramsey Interrogation by Lou Smit and Mike Kane (Glen Meyer Questions)

19 LOU SMIT: Do you know his name?
20 JOHN RAMSEY: Oh, I did. After the facts.
21 I don't know if I'd recognize it if you even told
22 me.
23 LOU SMIT: Glen Meyer?
24 JOHN RAMSEY: Glen Meyer, yes. That's the
25 only time I had ever seen him. At the time I
1 didn't know who he was. I just thought he was a
2 guest.



1 LOU SMIT: Were the kids developing a
2 relationship with this fellow, Glen Meyers, do you
3 think or has that ever been discussed?
4 JOHN RAMSEY: It's never been discussed.
5 I don't know. To my knowledge anyway. As I say, I
6 didn't even know he lived there. They had an
7 apartment in the basement.

8 LOU SMIT: Had you yourself ever been over
9 to the Barnhill's?
10 JOHN RAMSEY: Yeah. We went over for dinner
11 once, I think. We'd stop in and check on them and
12 take him things to eat sometimes. And I think
13 Betty or Joe was sick for a while and Patsy would
14 take them a thing of food and check on them. They
15 were good neighbors.


[Perfect Murder, Perfect Town]1999-02-18: “Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, JonBenet and the City of Boulder”
Written by Lawrence Schiller, February 18, 1999

PMPT Page 66

"Meanwhile, in Boulder, Detectives Steve Thomas and Ron Gosage interviewed the Ramseys' neighbors Joe Barnhill, seventy-seven, and his wife, Betty, who lived across the street. The Barnhills had a key to the Ramseys' home, since they were taking care of JonBenet's dog, Jacques, a Bichon Frise. The detectives learned that the Barnhills had a boarder, Glenn Meyer, who lived in their basement."


"Barnhill confirmed to police that at about 9:00 P.M. on December 24, John Ramsey had come to their house to pick up JonBenet's bicycle, a Christmas gift. The Barnhills said they were home the night JonBenet was killed. The police asked Joe for a handwriting sample, but his palsy made it impossible for him to give one. A week later he signed a waiver and his doctor confirmed Barnhill's illness to the police.

The detectives then interviewed the boarder, Glenn Meyer. He said that he had been at home on Christmas night and had watched television in the den with the Barnhills until 9:00 P.M. He then went downstairs to his basement room and spent the rest of the evening nursing a stomach flu. Meyer was also at the Ramseys' Christmas party, but he said he hadn't been introduced to Patsy or JonBenet.

"Do you mind taking a lie detector test?" Detective Thomas asked him. Meyer didn't, and on January 1, at 5:30 P.M., a polygraph test was administered. Most of the questions were about the Ramseys, and the examiner told him he had answered the questions truthfully. A

few weeks later, Detective Thomas asked Meyer for several handwriting samples and took his fingerprints."


PMPT Page 139

"A week later, on January 30, the police asked the Barnhills' boarder, Glenn Meyer, for another handwriting sample, the first one having shown some similarities to the writing in the ransom note."


PMPT Page 240

"Since early in the cae, the Ramseys’ investigators, headed by Ellis Armistead, had been looking into possible suspects who knew the

Ramseys or could have had access to their home. They were now focusing on people they believed the police had overlooked or had passed over too quickly. On March 13, Armistead met with case supervisor Detective Sgt. Tom Wickman and Detectives Trujillo and Thomas to discuss several possible suspects the Ramsey team had come u with. The list included a known sex offender, an Access Graphics employee, and Glenn Meyer, who lived in Joe Barnhills basement across the street from the Ramseys. The detectives listened without acknowledging whether these people had been investigated.

Two days later, On March 15, Armistead gave the police a dossier on Meyer, which showed that he had debts amounting to $70,000. Several weeks later, Thomas questioned Meyer at police headquarters about whether he had a prior record of assault, about his debts, and about his whereabouts on December 25 and 26. Meyer identified handwriting samples he’d given to the police and agreed to give another blood sample. Returning to the Barnhills’ house, he probably wondered how the police had discovered he was in debt and why the polygraph he’d taken hadn’t cleared him."

"On December 23 thirty-one people arrived for the party; the Whites, the Barnhills, the Fernies, the Stines, and the Barbers, and all their children, plus their assorted house guests.
Later that evening, Glenn Meyer, a single man who rented a room in Joe and Betty Barnhills basement, showed up looking for them. I invited him in because the Barnhills were good neighbors - our family dog, Jacques, lived part-time at their house."

COURIC: You also mention Glen Myer, who was a boarder at your neighbor's house. He stopped by at your Christmas party...

Mr. RAMSEY: Mm-hmm.

COURIC: ...just a few days before.

Mr. RAMSEY: I mention him because he's been mentioned, also, publicly. We didn't know Glen Myer lived across the street from us until after JonBenet was murdered.

COURIC: In fairness to the people we've just mentioned, we just want to say the Boulder police have told us that none of them are under suspicion at this time.

Mr. RAMSEY: All I ask the Boulder police to do is to look at every lead as objectively and as hard as they've--as they've looked at us.

Ms. RAMSEY: Mm-hmm.

ST Page 271

"The Barnhills rented out a basement room to Glenn Meyer, who would be pointed out by Ramsey investigators as a possible suspect because he carried a heavy load of debt. Meyer was an even more unlikely suspect than the Barnhills, since his own son had been murdered in Boston. He could not have been more cooperative with us. After an interview, giving writing and hair samples, and passing a polygraph, he was also cleared.

Meyer and the Barnhills also alibied each other, having watched television together on Christmas night and all going to bed early, Meyer with a case of the flu."
