Posted by: jameson245 - 04-19-2019, 02:02 PM - Forum: Autopsy - No Replies

The coroner's office, paid by the county on a case-by-case basis, has not yet tallied the bill for the Ramsey case. Boulder County Coroner Dr. John Meyer said the basic cost for an autopsy is $700. But an autopsy in a murder such as the Ramsey case may require many special tests that add to the cost. And the coroner's office also incurred expenses in the Globe photo fiasco.
The office's costs for the Ramsey case are expected to far exceed that $700 base.
"It will be multiples of that," said Meyer.

01/23/1997 news

Officials disputed a recent media report that the Boulder Police Department asked the Ramseys to take polygraph tests.
City spokeswoman Leslie Aaholm said she did not have knowledge of any such request. Korten would not confirm the report either.
"I really don't want to respond to what appears to be Police Department leaks about the issue," Korten (Ramsey media consultant)  said. "But ... our experts have told us that any polygraph tests made with the parents at this stage, given their emotional state, would produce results that are worthless.

Authorities denied recent media reports that handwriting samples did not match that of family members. Colorado Bureau of Investigation officials have not returned handwriting, blood and hair sample results from the Ramsey family and close friends to the Boulder Police Department.

"We have numerous examinations going on right now with this case," said Pete Mang, an inspector with the CBI. "There have been no final conclusions."

  unnamed - scared
Posted by: jameson245 - 04-19-2019, 12:41 PM - Forum: Neighbors - Replies (1)

Other residents said they have had difficulty sleeping and have placed chairs in front of their doors to prevent intruders from entering their homes at night.

"I just don't know what happened, and that's what's so scary," said one neighbor who declined to give her name. "There just isn't much crime here, which is why it's so terrifying to think that somebody really entered that house and killed her. And until they figure out what happened, I don't think I'll ever feel safe here again."

Posted by: jameson245 - 03-29-2019, 01:20 PM - Forum: Duck Tape - No Replies

The tape was found on her body by John - he took it off.  It was handled by Fleet White then left in the basement.  It was taken to an FBI lab who determined that the tape was made by Shurtape and after that Boulder sent Steve Thomas and Ron Gosage to the Shurtape factory in Hickory.  There they were told it was manufactured in November of 1996, they could tell because every time the fabric or adhesive is changed it has to be recorded and the combination of the crime tape was a very short run.  It was made in November.  Police knew all that before Easter of 1997.

Since the taped matched nothing in the Ramsey house and there was no evidence that the FAMILY bought it - - Thomas and his friends saw no reason to follow that lead any further.  I disagree and hope to push the issue a bit.  I think police may need to follow the lead to completion now if only to avoid embarrassment later if this ever went to trial they wouldn't want to have to admit they just... didn't.

This photo was taken in Boulder, Colorado in the winter of 1998. I was there working on a David Mills documentary.

I like the photo because there are 15 stories connected to that trip - and the photo reminds me of every one.

Userid wrote that there was no evidence JonBenet had been strangled twice.  I would argue with her on that - - it is unquestioned by the experts that she was choked with the cord low on the neck before the cord was moved to it's final position - - - the chain and cross she wore was dragged across her throat leaving a large abrasion.

When I studied the marks, I believe I found a third line as well. That would have been the first attempt.   The killer was vicious.

The curious aspect is Coroner Meyer's verbatim autopsy remarks

[i]Search Warrant 12/29/96. Excerpt[/i]

Quote:Detective Arndt told Your Affiant that she observed Dr. Meyer examine the vaginal area of the victim and heard him state that the victim had received an injury constant with [i]digital penetration of her vagina. Detective Arndt told Your Affiant that Dr. Meyer told her that it was his opinion that the victim had been subjected to sexual contact.[/i]

Which suggests a sexual assault using a finger and [b]not[/b] an injury caused by some unknown instrument, sometimes termed as [i]Instrumental Assault[/i] a bit like the [i]Blunt Force Trauma[/i] phraseology.

Yet nearly everyone assumes a piece of wooden splinter was found inside JonBenet, so how does that square with a Digital Sexual Assault?


My response -   When the man broke the paintbrush so he could use part of it in his garrote, a splinter, quite small, stuck to his finger. The digital assault put the splinter in his victim.

  118 - What could it be?
Posted by: jameson245 - 02-21-2019, 09:03 PM - Forum: 118 thousand dollar ransom - Replies (2)

OK, we have all discussed how 118 could be a reference to John's 1995 bonus - paid out in February 1996 - - it was $118,117.50.

How about this?  In Indonesia, if you need an ambulance, the number to dial is 118.  Just mentioning it because the ransom note mentioned foreign faction - - maybe our guy had spent some time in Indonesia.
