I went to JonBenet's grave today while I was on the square in Marietta.

SOMEONE, probably well-meaning, has written on her gravestone, "No justice in U.S.A." in red marker (or hopefully, lipstick).

I didn't know it had been marked on, or I would have brought some cleaner to try to get the writing off.

If anyone from the area goes there, please take some 409 and paper towels and try to get things right, OK?

A small note encased in plastic might have been appropriate, but it was so sickening to see that even her grave is being defiled.


1999-10-20: JonBenet Ramsey's Grave Cleaned Up

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Graffiti protesting the lack of indictments in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey was cleaned off the 6-year-old girl's grave on Wednesday.

Someone had scrawled ``No Justice in U.S.A.'' in red marker on the plain marble slab covering the grave at St. James Episcopal Church Cemetery, police Lt. Rick Townsend said.

The vandalism was reported Monday, five days after a grand jury in Boulder, Colo., ended its 13-month investigation of the killing without indicting anyone. A panel appointed by Colorado Gov. Bill Owens is now considering whether a special prosecutor should be appointed.

The child beauty queen was found dead in her family's Boulder home the day after Christmas in 1996. Her parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, buried JonBenet in Marietta, northwest of Atlanta, and have since moved to the Atlanta area.

The couple has insisted they had nothing to do with their daughter's death, although Boulder police have said they remain under an ``umbrella of suspicion.''

Townsend said police are investigating the vandalism at the grave, have no leads.

1999-10-21: Vandal scrawls on JonBenet's tombstone

Apparent reference to lack of indictments since erased

A vandal has registered a terse opinion about the JonBenet Ramsey case at the child's gravesite.

The words "No Justice in U.S.A," scrawled in red marker on the child's marble tombstone at the St. James Episcopal Church cemetery in Marietta, Ga., were discovered by a police officer Saturday.

Three days earlier, Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter announced that his 13-month grand jury probe into the child beauty queen's slaying had yielded no indictments.

Colorado Gov. Bill Owens is now weighing a decision whether to appoint a special prosecutor in the Christmas night 1996 slaying. JonBenet's grave is beneath a dogwood tree.

"It's just in an area that, if you drive down the roadway, you can see it from the roadway," Marietta police Lt. Rick Townsend said.

Some visitors have taken to hanging angel figurines from the tree's branches in the 6-year-old's memory.

"At this time, until we have some leads, we have very little work to do on it," he said. "We are monitoring the area. It concerns us that anyone would vandalize anyone's grave."

The graffiti was removed Wednesday, said church rector Karen Evans.

There is no easy way to prevent a recurrence, she said.

"The cemetery needs to be open for the family and friends of all those who are buried there," she said.

Evans said JonBenet's final resting place is "very sporadically" visited by people who come from hundreds, even thousands of miles away -- despite never having met the child.

"Whenever it's in the news in a big way, more people come," she said.

Evans said she has had no contact concerning the vandalism with any member of the Ramsey family. John and Patsy Ramsey, JonBenet's parents, live in nearby Atlanta.
