Behind The Murder of JonBenét Ramsey
On December 26th, 1996, the all American pageant child, JonBenét Ramsey was found brutally wrapped in a blanket with a garrote strangled forcibly around her neck. The events that took place ten hours prior remains a mystery the CSI has yet to uncover. At 5:52 a.m., Patsy Ramsey, the mother of six-year old JonBenét frantically called 911, saying “We have a kidnapping. Hurry, please!” (The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey). As the operator tried to calm her down and get more information on the case, Patsy released, “There’s a note left and our daughters gone… It says SBTC victory!” (The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey). Moments later, she hung up leaving Kim Archuleta, the operator patiently trying to help Patsy until police arrive without another explanation.
As police entered the scene, the mood of the house lingered with a suspicious feeling of calmness. Patsy, along with her Husband John seemed the opposite of frantic, with the evidence of family friends hanging out in the living room casually. Burke Ramsey, the brother of JonBenét was even asleep in his bedroom during the mid-day. As police searched the house for any remaining DNA samples, John Ramsey along with one of his best friends scurried to the basement, opening a door to reveal JonBenét faced down with a blanket covering her figure. His initial reaction was to pick her up, transfer her upstairs to show the police, and then lay her down on the living room floor. This was a catalytic flaw in the case, ultimately due to the abundance of DNA previously on the floor that would now catch onto JonBenét’s blanket. Any remaining evidence from the supposed ‘kidnapper’ physically on her was then extirpated. Still, no signs of forced entry, breakage, blood, or footprints were observed creating dubiosity towards the family.
To further examine evidence on JonBenét’s body, an autopsy was held. Doctors were able to discover wounds on the back of her neck that were imprinted in the shape of a stun gun. They also discovered ligature strangulation, craniocerebral injuries, and abrasion to her genitalia. Ultimately, they were able to claim her death from asphyxiation and strangulation.
During the trial, the three page hand-written ransom note left behind sparked controversy and questions. Its specific statements and bipolar tone brought attention to forensics. Standing out was the quote, “we are a small foreign faction” (The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey) appearing to debunk a sense of power kidnappers usually manipulate families with. When studied, the linguistic profile had been proven to show a high writing ability, native english structure, an adult over thirty, and female characteristics. The note also stated to withdraw one-hundred and eighteen-thousand dollars in order to receive JonBenét back, which was the exact amount Mr. Benét received as his Christmas bonus. It was known that the Benét family lived a lavish life consisting of a private jet and million dollar estate. This c...
