April, 2008


Jurors took less than three hours Thursday to reject a 49-year-old pizza delivery man's tale of killing a paramour 20 years his junior in a fit of rage after she threatened to expose the claimed affair to his wife.

Instead, the 10-woman, two-man jury in Knox County Criminal Court declared Marvin Joseph Hill guilty of first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse in the May 2006 slaying of Christina Jeanette Eubanks, 28, inside her Fort Sanders apartment.
(snip) 



Assistant District Attorney General Takisha Fitzgerald painted a different portrait for jurors, arguing that Hill had been trying unsuccessfully to woo Eubanks when he turned up on her doorstep with a stun gun, which he used to render her unconscious in order to rape her.

Just quoting Tricia on this: -

To clear things up we do not allow discussion of an intruder in the Ramsey case for the very simple reason there was no intruder.

As we do on every case on Websleuths we allow you to discuss the facts of the case. As it stands now the three people in the house that night are not cleared. Until John, Burke, and Patsy are cleared and believable evidence of an intruder is introduced, the only discussion allowed is one that includes the people in the house that night.

If you want to discuss the intruder theory there are many other forums where you are allowed to do so.

I do my best to run Websleuths like a democracy; however, there are times that I have to make a decision based on what I know. As the owner, I feel it is a disservice to the forum to allow the fantasy of intruders to be discussed.

[b]You may be tempted to reply to me on this thread about this topic. Please do not reply on this thread or any thread. Allowing the intruder discussion is not an option.[/b]

Governor may step into JonBenet case


BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 8 -- Colorado Gov. Roy Romer is considering whether he should intervene in the JonBenet Ramsey case. Romer has asked the district attorneys of four counties to advise him on how to respond to the latest call for a special prosecutor in the 20- month investigation.
Boulder Police Detective Steve Thomas resigned Thursday, accusing Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter of crippling the case and asked Romer to intervene. Thomas is one of the original detectives assigned to investigate the murder of the 6-year-old beauty princess, who would have turned 8 last Thursday. 'The time for intervention is now,' Thomas said in his letter to Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner. 'It is difficult to imagine a more compelling situation for the introduction of an entirely independent prosecution team to be introduced into this matter, who would oversee an attempt at righting this case.' The Rocky Mountain News says Thomas accused Hunter's office of denying police search warrants for phone records and other documents, and failing to collect some evidence; dismissing other evidence as unimportant or rationalizing it as insignificant; sharing evidence with the Ramsey family and attorneys and allegedly pursuing 'innocent people with shameless tactics.' The newspaper says Thomas could not be reached to elaborate or comment. Hunter was unavailable, vacationing in Alaska. By law, Romer can intervene in cases where a local district attorney has refused to file charges. Romer spokesman Matt Sugar said the governor wants advice from metro- area prosecutors Bill Ritter, Bob Grant, Jim Peters and Dave Thomas. The district attorneys have served as advisers to Hunter on the case. A meeting is planned this weekend or early next week.

JonBenet Ramsey's brother settles $750M defamation suit against CBS
Burke Ramsey filed action after airing of 2016 documentary on sister's unsolved slaying
[b]By Charlie Brennan[/b]
[i]Staff writer 
[/i]





Burke Ramsey's $750 million defamation case filed against CBS Corp. and other parties who participated in a controversial 2016 documentary about the murder of his sister JonBenet Ramsey has been settled, but those involved aren't discussing terms of the agreement.

"The parties have reached an amicable resolution of their differences and will have no further comment," said a statement attributed to spokesperson for producers of the program, "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey," which aired in September 2016.

The statement added that no other information would be forthcoming.

James Stewart, an Ann Arbor, Mich.-based attorney representing CBS, declined comment when reached at his office.
Burke Ramsey's Atlanta-based lawyer, Lin Wood, tweeted a news account concerning the settlement in which he was quoted saying that the suit had been "amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties," and added the note, "After handling many defamation cases for them over the past 20 years, hopefully this is my last defamation case for this fine family."

According to Burke Ramsey's lawsuit, which is filed in December 2016 in the Circuit Court for Wayne County, Mich., the gist of the documentary was "that Burke Ramsey killed his six-year-old sister," and that such a claim is "false and defamatory per se" and "Burke Ramsey did not kill his sister and had no involvement in her brutal murder."

An online register of actions in the case shows that Judge David A. Groner signed an order of dismissal on Wednesday, and that a settlement conference set for March 20 has been canceled, with the notation "case disposed."

A clerk in Groner's office on Friday said the order declares that the claims against those producing the documentary "are dismissed with prejudice and without costs or attorney fees. This is a final order and the case is closed."

The term "with prejudice"means that an action cannot be refiled.

In addition to the CBS Corp., other defendants named in the suit were the production company Critical Content, LLC., plus Jim Clemente, Laura Richards, A. James Kolar, James Fitzgerald, Stanley Burke, nationally known forensic scientist Henry Lee and forensic pathologist Werner Spitz, all of whom participated in the CBS production.

Michigan online court records show that a separate $50 million lawsuit filed by JonBenet Ramsey's father, John Ramsey, also was terminated by the same judge's order on Wednesday.

[b]Subpoena battle[/b]
Prior to dismissal of the suits, they had spurred a fight over subpoenas served in the case that made its way into Boulder courts.

A battle had been brewing since last June, when lawyers for Burke Ramsey, who was 9 at the time of his younger sister's death, served a subpoena for limited Boulder Police Department files. The subpoena was part of the discovery process in his lawsuit against the CBS Corp. and other parties responsible for the September 2016 four-hour, two-part program, "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey."

Lawyers representing CBS upped the ante with their own far-ranging subpoena to the Boulder Police Department, as well as to Alex Hunter, the former Boulder County District Attorney who held office through the first turbulent years of the notorious case. While Burke Ramsey's lawyers' subpoena to the police was narrow in scope, the bid by lawyers defending CBS was ultimately amended to a voluminous list of 31 items, covering a broad range of what is in the police department files — which after 22 years is said to run more than 60,000 pages.

Targeted items included all DNA reports and related communications completed by the Bode Technology forensic laboratory, all documents produced by former Boulder County Coroner John Meyer, all handwriting analysis, evidence relating to materials found in the victim's digestive system, and reports pertaining to items of evidence such as a Hi-Tec bootprint and a palm print found on the door of the basement room in which JonBenet's body was found.

The Boulder Police Department, through the office of the city attorney, had fought its subpoenas from both parties to the defamation suit, arguing in court filings that the chance of interfering with "an ongoing homicide investigation outweighs any potential relevance of the information sought."

Hunter, who retired 18 years ago and was 81 at the time he was subpoenaed, also fought his subpoena on the grounds that it could compromise an open investigation — but also noted that it would interfere with his annual six-month wintertime stay in Hawaii.

In a ruling dated Dec. 10, Boulder District Judge Thomas Mulvahill granted the Boulder department's motion seeking to quash that subpoena and granted a protective order.

Mulvahill's ruling noted that the murder case "remains open and has not been completed," and also states that Boulder is not a party to the ongoing litigation between Burke Ramsey and producers of the controversial documentary.

But the judge also cited the fact that, with dozens of books and movies and television shows having picked at the bones of the beleaguered investigation for more than two decades, there aren't a lot of secrets left.

Mulvahill's ruling stated "...there is a tremendous amount of information available in the public domain such that Defendants can obtain the subpoenaed information from other sources or through discovery."
In a separate filing, court records show that Burke Ramsey's lawyers in November moved to withdraw their subpoena to the Boulder Police Department and dismiss their action. In a one-line ruling, Mulvahill granted that motion on Nov. 13.

The subpoena to Hunter had targeted a broad range of material, including every document relating to JonBenet's death that he might have retained since leaving office.

Court records show that subpoenas in recent months also had been served on numerous other players in the Ramsey drama, including onetime Ramsey private investigator Ellis Armistead, former Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy, Boulder's High Peaks Elementary School — which both Ramsey children attended at the time of JonBenet's death — as well as Dr. Francesco Beuf, JonBenet's pediatrician.

JonBenet was found murdered in the basement of her parents' University Hill home the afternoon of Dec. 26, 1996, several hours after her mother, Patsy Ramsey called 911 to report JonBenet was missing and that she had found a ransom note demanding $118,000 for her safe return

He wrote and article accusing Patsy and wanted people to read it.  I doubt many did but I will today and will make my comments here and on Facebook.

To start, he said he felt John was probably the guilty then he switched to Patsy.

He cited the Seraph report and noted .. "That small group of investigators was commissioned by the Boulder police for an assessment of the ransom note and crime. They concluded Patsy Ramsey had sacrificed her daughter."


What he didn't say was that they had been hired to write a very specific report tying Patsy to Psalm 118.  Why?  So that "expert report" could be referred to in an interrogation - - to upset Patsy and hopefully cause her to break down and say something incriminating.  That was revealed in a radio program by none other than Dale Yeager of Seraph.

I knew Jordan was writing a story, hoped the focus would have been on the tape and not on me, but the story is good and I am glad she wrote it.  I expect she will find we do sit and talk before this is all over.

I went to the store today to buy, of all things, pineapple.  The newspapers are near the checkout and I was surprised to see the story.  Even more surprised to see the scope and length.  

I will post it here.

He was a member of webbsleuths, wrote a book on the subject.  Now we hear he has been arrested for crimes against children.

I do NOT want to put the blame on the other forum at all - - people can't know for sure who they are dealing with on the internet and that is why I advise all to be very careful.    But he was a pretty strong poster over there, kind of a leader, and I think it is good we all see this.
