JonBenet photo found in home of suspected Ohio pornographer Thursday, January 8, 1998

Authorities found a photograph of JonBenet Ramsey in the Ohio home of a suspected pornographer who is under scrutiny in the disappearance of another Colorado girl.

The picture of the slain 6-year-old beauty queen turned up in the Columbus home of 35 -year-old James Partin, who was arrested last month for investigation of distributing child pornography on the Internet.

Detectives working on that case discovered a newspaper clipping about the 1983 disappearance of Beth Miller and a map of the Idaho Springs area marked with three Xs in Partin's house.

Miller was 14 when she disappeared after going for a jog near her Idaho Springs home. Partin lived in Idaho Springs around that time.

Boulder police will contact Clear Creek County authorities or the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to learn more about the Ramsey photo in Partin's possession, a Boulder police spokeswoman said Wednesday.

But Boulder detectives do not believe Partin had any involvement in the year-old Ramsey slaying.

Police last spring investigated a North Carolina man arrested in a child sexual assault there because he had some newspaper clippings about JonBenet Ramsey's murder, but detectives quickly ruled him out as a suspect.

"They'll check this one out, too," police spokeswoman Leslie Aaholm said. "But it's not a high priority."

JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in her parent's Boulder home Dec. 26, 1996. Eight detectives continue to investigate the murder full-time.

The Erica Nicole Baker Story

Ex-Girlfriend story of James Partin
(NOTE: Old website, unable to verify)


Posted on the website:

"One suspect was Mr. James Partin who lives within a few miles of the Bakers' residence. Partin was arrested in Columbus, Ohio when his girl friend found child pornography on his computer, including videos. He was convicted, but a month later was out of jail. Partin had also been investigated in the JonBenét Ramsey case. Apparently he'd lived close by to Elizabeth Miller in Colorado the day that she disappeared, and along with the computer porn investigators had found newspaper clippings of both Elizabeth and JonBenét."

A recent e-mail forwarded to investigators:
Subject: Erica Baker
To: ancient-andean@almapintada.com

"I read the story that you wrote about Erica and you could not be more wrong. I don't believe for one minute that her father had anything to do with her disapearance. I make this statement based on fact the facts of what I saw and what I turned into the Columbus police which they have preceeded to do nothing with. I am the ex girlfriend of James Partin and if you could of seen the discusting sick evidence I found in his pocession and if you could have found the note in his kithchen saying " I have killed before and I will kill again, somebody please stop me" If you would have found the stories of Beth Miller and seen the photos I turned in on video one of his tourso with his penis in a pre-teenage girl. You would too know that James Partin is an evil preditor and a killer. If you could have found the empty bottle of cloraphil in his toolbox you too would know the evil he is capable of. Don't blame her father blame the authorities who let this whackjob back out on the street."

Do you want to know why he is still free? Have you ever heard of the good ole boys club? Well James's father is a retired miliatary chief and he has alot of connections. He abused his own children and was even charged in military court for it and served time for molesting his own daughter. So now the parents blame themselves for their son's behaviour and they do whatever they have to to get him out of trouble. Its time in this country we start protecting our children first and we rid ourselves of the good ole boy network and let this scum of society pay for their crimes.

Please don't continue your crusade against Greg Baker he may not be perfect but he would not harm his child. Take a closer look and James Partin and his father Allan Partin and his wife they are the real criminals here. I have done everything I could to stop this guy but his fathers influences always win out. I put my family through hell to turn this guy in and I feared for my own life(I still do) only to have our wonderful police and judicial system release him to kill again.

You should also check into the Beth Miller story the evidence against him in that one is pretty good too. But again he remains free. How many children will have to suffer before the good ole boy club looses and James is locked up? One more question if James is innocent why won't he talk to police about either cases?? You must have something to hide if you are afraid to talk? I opened my whole life up to the police when I turned him in they found nothing on me except I am a single mother of a blond haired daughter who loves children and wanted to see justice done.

Ha Ha! that was a joke he is still out stalking, videotaping, and God only knows what else. please do not contact me at this email I am only borrowing a computer. I can't afford my own. I just couldn't stand to read your story casting doubt on Erica's father. He passed a polygraph let's see James and his parents pass one. I only pray that God brings closure, justice and peace to her family. Please keep up the work for the children. I just wanted you to have the facts."

Missing Since: August 16, 1983 from Idaho Springs, Colorado
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: July 27, 1969
Age: 14 years old
Height and Weight: 5'3 - 5'4, 105 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Blonde hair, blue eyes. Some agencies give Miller's eye color as green or hazel. She has a mole over her right eyebrow. Her nickname is Beth. Clothing Description: White jogging shorts, a faded blue t-shirt and running shoes.


Details of Disappearance

Miller was last seen jogging at 10:00 a.m. on August 16, 1983 in her hometown of Idaho Springs, Colorado. She was last seen in a park near her family's residence. Investigators believe that a male seen in the park at the same time as Miller may have been seen speaking to her. The man was driving a small red pickup truck with a white camper shell and out-of-state license plates. It has not been established if the man has any connection to Miller's disappearance, but police are interested in identifying him and questioning him. Miller's sister says a man in a red pickup truck had flirted with Miller a few days before she vanished, but the sister could not identify the man or remember very much about him or his vehicle; it is unknown whether it was the same person seen nearby when Miller vanished.

Miller disappeared shortly thereafter and has not been seen again. She did not have any cash or personal belongings with her on the day she vanished. Miller normally left a note for her parents if she was going away for any length of time; she did not do so on the day of her disappearance. Miller was a basketball player at the time of her disappearance; she jogged regularly to stay in shape. She is one of seven children. At the time of her disappearance, she baby-sat to earn spending money; her baby-sitting earnings were left behind at her house when she vanished.

An unidentified Ohio man has been under investigation for several years in Miller's case. Authorities believe he may have been involved in Miller's presumed abduction, but he has never been charged. Another suspect is deceased; he was murdered by his wife and mother-in-law in 1990. The man's girlfriend claimed she had helped him bury Miller in the mountains near Idaho Springs. Three cadaver dogs indicated the presence of human remains in the place the girlfriend indicated, but police excavations turned up no evidence. Miller's family believes, however, that the suspect did in fact murder her. In 1995, a serial killer from Mississippi claimed that he had killed Miller, but police did not find his story credible.

In 1994, a missing children's hotline received a bizarre anonymous call about Miller's case. The caller stated that he or she had seen Miller together with Tiffany Sessions (http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sessions_tiffany.html) and Tracy Kroh (http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/k/kroh_tracy.html) and that the three young women were being held against their will in Austin, Texas and forced to work as prostitutes. Sessions and Kroh both disappeared in 1989, Sessions from Florida and Kroh from Pennsylvania, and no one had suggested the cases were related. The tipster claimed the three women were being held by a man named Thomas Stewart and traveling in a white van with Florida license plates and a blue/gray van with unknown license plates. Police from all three states investigated the tip but decided it was probably a hoax. In 1995, a woman police picked up in Tampa, Florida claimed to be Miller. Miller's parents flew to Florida to meet the woman, but she turned out to be someone else.

Possible evidence relating to Miller's case was found in Empire, Colorado in 1994. Some bone fragments, a piece of fabric similar to canvas, and a single blonde hair was found buried near Interstate 70. The bone fragments have never been identified; police do not even know if they are human. The fabric was very degraded and appeared to have been buried for a long time. In 2004, the police sent the hair to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to test for mitochondrial DNA. They hope to conclusively link the hair to Miller's case. Miller's family had her declared legally deceased in 1994, but her case remains open and unsolved.

Porn possessor gets out of jail--(Dayton Daily News)

A man Kettering police want to question about Erica Baker's disappearance has been freed from prison after serving two months of a five-year sentence for possessing child pornography. While searching Partin's residence, Columbus police found a newspaper clipping describing the 1983 disappearance of Beth Miller, 13, of Idaho Springs, Colo. About that time, Partin lived in the same neighborhood as Miller, who vanished while jogging and was declared dead in 1995. Her body was never found. It is said that photos of murdered child beauty queen, JonBenet Ramsey, were also found.

Prior criminal record means mandatory ten-year minimum sentence

DAYTON - James Partin, age 43, of Kettering pled guilty in United States District Court here today to one count of possession of child pornography. Because Partin has a prior state conviction of a pornography-related crime, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years imprisonment and up to 20 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000.

Gregory G. Lockhart, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Brian Moskowitz, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, announced the plea entered today before Senior United States Judge Walter H. Rice.

According to a statement of facts filed with Partin’s plea, he possessed visual depictions of children under the age of 18 engaged in sexually explicit conduct when ICE agents searched his residence on August 10, 2004.

Forensic examination of his computer determined that he possessed approximately 14 still images on his computer. He had downloaded the pictures from the Internet.

“Investigators determined that these images depicted actual children engaged in explicit conduct,” Lockhart said. “We will prosecute people who possess child pornography because they create a market for those who exploit children. Repeat offenders face particularly harsh sentences under federal law.”

Partin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years imprisonment because he was convicted in 1999 in Franklin County, Ohio of 18 counts of child pornography-related crimes. Judge Rice will set a date for sentencing.

Lockhart commended the ICE agents who investigated the case and Assistant U.S.

Attorney Laura Clemmens, who is prosecuting the case.

2006-11-08 Kettering Man Receives Ten-Year Sentence for Possession of Child Pornography

United States Attorney Gregory G. Lockhart Southern District of Ohio


CONTACT: Fred Alverson
FAX: 614-469-5503


DAYTON – James Partin, age 43, of Kettering was sentenced in United States District Court here to ten years imprisonment for possession of images of child pornography.

Gregory G. Lockhart, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, and Brian Moskowitz, Special Agent in Charge, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, announced the sentence handed down yesterday by Senior United States Judge Walter H. Rice.

Partin pled guilty on June 2, 2006 to one count of possession of child pornography. ICE agents filed the charge against Partin after they searched his residence on August 10, 2004 and found a computer containing approximately 14 still images of children under the age of 18 engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Partin had downloaded the pictures from the Internet.

“Partin’s conviction triggered the minimum mandatory sentence provision of the PROTECT Act, a law passed by Congress in 2003,” Lockhart said. “By including these minimum mandatory sentences, Congress has made its intent clear: the government has a compelling interest in protecting children from those who sexually exploit them. One of the means chosen by Congress is to impose severe punishments for repeat offenders.”

Partin was convicted in 1999 in Franklin County, Ohio of 18 counts of child pornography-related crimes.

Lockhart commended the ICE agents who investigated the case and Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Clemmens, who is prosecuting the case.
