There are two years to focus on regarding the two different types of DNA testing in the JonBenét Ramsey case: 1997 and 2008
First:
·        1997 – DNA Testing from JonBenét’s panties and from under her fingernails. Three different areas were tested. The method of testing was short tandem repeats.
January 15, 1997 - The first testing was done by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and delivered to Boulder Police on January 15, 1997. The report concluded:  
“The DNA profiles developed from [(bloodstains from panties as well as from right- and left-hand fingernails from JonBenét] revealed a mixture from which the major component matched JonBenét. If the minor components contributed from [bloodstains from panties as well as from right- and left-hand fingernails from JonBenét] were contributed by a single individual, then John Andrew Ramsey, Melinda Ramsey, John B. Ramsey, Patricia Ramsey, Burke Ramsey, Jeff Ramsey [etc.] would be excluded as a source of the DNA analyzed on those exhibits.”      
February 1997 – Boulder police send the Colorado Bureau of Investigation testing to CellMark Diagnostics. 
May, 1997 - The results from CellMark, which were delivered to Boulder Police in May of 1997, reveal “no surprises” as they were similar to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation results.
I asked DNA expert Dr. Elizabeth Johnson from Thousand Oaks, California to review the 1997 findings.  She wrote that the minor or foreign DNA was ‘very weak’.  Dr. Johnson indicated that the DNA from all three 1997 samples [panties and left and right fingernails from JonBenét] was from the same person. She added that, if the DNA from these samples was from the same person, it eliminated the Ramseys and their family members as contributors to the mixture.
There is additional comment on the 1997 testing. In 2008, when Bode Technology DNA investigators analyzed untested clothing, they also gave an opinion on the 1997 testing.  The two Bode DNA experts stated they believed the testing was accurate and would “testify” in court if necessary according to a Boulder District Attorney Investigator Report.   
Advances in DNA testing and identification developed very rapidly so in 2008, a decision was made by then-Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy, for a new type of DNA testing on previously untested clothing of JonBenét.
·        2008 – New Touch DNA Testing from four different areas of JonBenét’s ‘white long underwear bottoms’ at the waist band. – Exterior top right half of long johns, Exterior top left half of long johns, Interior top right half of long johns, Interior top left half of long johns: 
This Touch DNA testing was completed by Bode Laboratories/Technology. This clothing had never been tested. There were other items sent in for the touch DNA testing at that time, but the documents concentrated on for this portion are the touch DNA testing analysis from the long johns. Eight years later, DNA experts hired by Colorado television station KUSA and newspaper The Daily Camera questioned the validity of the 2008 DNA testing The experts analyzed the 2008 Bode tests including written and laboratory results.
The documentation below is the written analysis by Bode Labs on the long johns delivered to the Boulder District Attorney’s Office.  Again, there were four test areas completed on the waist band of the long johns. This is the first time this documentation has  been made public. Bode Technology stands by its results in these documents on its 2008 DNA JonBenét Ramsey testing.
·        March 24, 2008 – These are the results of the request by then-Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy for Bode Lab/Technology to examine the 2008 waist band/long john results and compare it to the 1997 DNA results from the different clothing

June 20, 2008 – These are test results asked for by then-Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy for Bode Lab/Technology to compare the 2008 Touch DNA Test results from JonBenét’s long johns with the 1997 DNA testing from JonBenét’s panties and from under the fingernails of each hand.

May 12, 2008 – These are the results of Touch DNA testing on a different piece of clothing from the long johns.  It’s JonBenét’s “Barbie Nightgown” which was found in the storage room next to JonBenét’s body. The testing is described as “Blood Standards”.
They were taken from four areas of the nightgown:  Exterior and interior of the bottom front of nightgown, exterior of the left shoulder region front and back of nightgown, exterior of the right shoulder region front and back of nightgown, exterior and interior of the bottom back of nightgown.

There will be more JonBenét Ramsey DNA documentation on this website as it becomes available. I have made the written analysis documentation public for more transparency on the Ramsey case. It was obtained from a Colorado Open Records Request to the Boulder District Attorney’s Office in October of 2016.
