Hunter won't attend FBI Ramsey review
Monday, September 1, 1997
Police and prosecutors will meet with the FBI in Quantico, Va., early this month to confer on the JonBenet Ramsey case, but district attorney Alex Hunter won't be in attendance.
Hunter, through spokeswoman Suzanne Laurion, said attending the Sept. 8 and 9 meeting with the FBI's Child Abuse and Serial Killers Unit "at this time would be premature."
Police will brief the district attorney's office Wednesday in Boulder in advance of the trip, but the briefing will be less complete than expected, Laurion said in a written statement.
"The District Attorney's office had expected a preliminary review of the entire case to date," the statement said. "The police department now advises that the Sept. 3 preliminary review will be partial in nature, involving only the physical evidence collected thus far."
Chief Trial Deputy District Attorney Peter Hofstrom, Senior Trial Deputy District Attorney Trip DeMuth and Special Investigator Lou Smit will travel to Quantico for the meeting with the FBI.
The meeting "is but one additional step" in the investigation into the 8-month-old case, Hunter said through his spokeswoman. "There still is much work to be done."
Police have been conferring regularly with the FBI and have been working with prosecutors and their investigators in a special "war room." Police also have brought in a team of three lawyers to review the case.
JonBenet, 6, was found beaten and strangled Dec. 26 in the basement of her family's home about eight hours after her mother said she found a ransom note demanding $118,000.
There have been no arrests and no suspects named. Hunter has called the parents a focus of the investigation, although he has stressed investigators are pursuing all leads.
