  Key Witness?
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-07-2017, 08:37 PM - Forum: odds and ends - Replies (1)

A man named Raymond Dale Arnold  6/19/1943 - 11/11/2007 has an interesting gravestone in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.  

                    HERE LIES THE KEY WITNESS IN THE JONBENET MURDER CASE

Apparently he had a theory and no one listened - so he bought his own gravestone and had the words inscribed himself.

  What is A Grand Jury
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-07-2017, 11:51 AM - Forum: Grand Jury Indictments - Replies (9)

Stolen posts from a lawyer on Reddit - - hope that person finds this here and contacts me.

Part 1 of 9

What’s a crime, what's a felony, and how does someone get charged with one?
In most jurisdictions, criminal law is set out by statute (in Colorado, the Colorado Criminal Code). A felony is any offense that is punishable by a year or more in prison. (Misdemeanors, by contrast, are punishable by less than one year in prison.)
Because the potential charges here are felonies (and GJs are not really used for misdemeanors), let's assume going forward that the crimes we're discussing are all felony charges.
So what's the first step in bringing criminal charges? The investigation. The police have the primary job of investigating crimes. To widely varied extents, the police may consult with the prosecutor’s office over the course of their investigation, or they may call upon the prosecutor’s office to assist in the investigation itself. This is to ensure that the facts being developed would be sufficient to meet the elements of the offense charged. On the other side, the prosecutor's office wants to make sure that the police are complying with the law and procedure so that the case cannot be attacked later in court. The prosecutor office also works with the police to obtain things like search and arrest warrants.
By the end of the investigation, the police present their case to the prosecutor’s office. It's the prosecutor's office that has the power to decide whether to move forward with charges.
A prosecutor in Colorado can file charges in one of two ways: (1) by information; or (2) by indictment. An information is somewhat akin to a “complaint” in civil law. It sets out the basic alleged facts and the elements of the offense(s) charged. Charges by information can be instituted in a couple of different courts in Colorado, but we don’t need to get into that. For our purposes, it’s sufficient to say that this is the far easier way of bringing charges, and is used way more often that the grand jury. For most cases, it's pretty simple to lay out a basic description of the facts, plug in the statue being charged under, and file your information.
An indictment is the other way of bringing charges. The prosecutor convenes a grand jury, and they receive a presentation of the facts from the prosecution only. (I'll get into this more later.) The prosecutor then gives the jury pre-selected criminal charges that the prosecutor thinks applies, and the jury votes whether to indict on those charges (a "true bill"), or they vote not to indict (a "no true bill"). Ultimately, however, the decision to actually indict still rests with the prosecutor. I can’t emphasize this enough: ** The grand jury does not issue indictments! ** (The media, so sloppy on this distinction.)
Rather, if the GJ votes to indict (aka issues a "true bill"), the prosecutor can either decide to move forward by filing an indictment (thereby "indicting" the defendant), or he can decline to do so. If the GJ does not vote to indict, the prosecutor either will reconsider whether any options exist to proceed by information, or he will decline to move forward with charges.
In this way, whether proceeding by information or by indictment, the prosecutor has the final say on what chargers are brought.*
(* In rare, rare, cases, if the GJ votes to indict and the prosecutor declines to do so, the Court can get involved and basically force the prosecutor to move forward with the charges. I’ve literally never seen this happen.)
In either the case of an information or an indictment, the charging document must provide sufficient information to notify the defendant of the charges being brought against him. In simple terms, what are the basic who, what, where, when, why’s, and what statutes are charges being brought under?

  Note to JonBenet
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-06-2017, 06:20 PM - Forum: The ad - Replies (1)

If I knew you were listening I would wish you a happy birthday and tell you I am sorry you missed out on so many things this life has to offer, the birthday parties, school, friends, hobbies, maybe a marriage and kids.....  but I know your spirit lives on and believe you are now on another adventure.

You were loved here, am missed here and some of us still seek justice for you, someone who should be 27 today but will forever be 6 in our minds and hearts.

  The college kid suspect
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-06-2017, 06:08 PM - Forum: How to solve this mystery - Replies (2)

1 - The killer might be a college kid who was home for the holidays.  After spending the day with his family, it would have been easy to tell his parents he was going to go catch up with friends he had not seen since he now lived so far away.    Understandably, a family would not want to offer up a son/brother as suspect when the police were so keen on this being a domestic incident - - but 20 years have passed and if the man has continued a life of crime, the family may now be less willing to protect him.  I would like to see a story run on the evidence pointing to an intruder and specifically suggesting this might be one answer.

2.  The killer may have been a student at CU who did NOT go home for the holidays and was alone, lonely and very angry.  He would have had to have had SOME knowledge of the Ramseys and anger towards them or jealousy for what they had that he did not.   Since the tape found on the body had recently been manufactured in Hickory, NC, I think it might  be interesting to check on students from Catawba and surrounding counties in NC - - someone who may have gone home for Thanksgiving and picked up a roll of tape from a relative who worked at the mill.  Just a thought, but I have not heard they located any other tape from that short run so  - - what could it hurt to check?

  Industrial Psychologists
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-06-2017, 05:43 PM - Forum: Access Graphics - No Replies

Back in the day, some businesses had job applicants take psychological tests and the results of those tests weighed heavily on if a person was hired.  Access Graphics used a firm (Sperduto and Associates) for such testing.

I would hope after the murder that investigators approached these people and asked if they would review the tests and make recommendations as they saw fit on people who needed to be followed up on.

  Resignation from the case -
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-06-2017, 05:16 PM - Forum: John San Agustin - No Replies

John worked for the El Paso Sheriff's Office when the murder took place and was asked to assist Boulder in the Ramsey case.  He worked closely with Lou Smit and Ollie Gray even after he resigned officially from the Ramsey investigation.  Unpaid, on his own time - as did both Lou and Ollie.

I thought some might be interested in seeing his official resignation from the case.  (Understand, this man got to see all the evidence as he was putting together the multimedia presentation - and he knew there was clear and convincing evidence of an intruder.

His letter 

WITHDRAWAL FROM JONBENET RAMSEY CASE

    As of September 22, 1998, I will no longer be assisting the Boulder District Attorney's Office on the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation.  In June, 1998, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office was asked to assist the Boulder District Attorney's Office by Chief Deputy DA Peter Hofstrom in helping them present a case using multimedia technology.  Since the removal of Chief Deputy District Attorney Peter Hofstrom and Deputy District Attorney Trip Demuth it became apparent that District Attorney Alex Hunter no longer needed my assistance.  Therefore I will no longer be providing assistance to the Boulder District Attorney's Office.  The following is a rough timeline of dates in which I was involved in the JonBenet Ramsey case.  It should be noted that the locks to my office were changed and I was the only person who had access.  Due to the sensitivity of the case, per Commander Kastner's request, no information was disseminated to anyone from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

(The details of the timeline are possibly sensitive and I will not share them here and now.)

  The truth about the Boulder Police Tip Line
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-05-2017, 07:14 PM - Forum: To submit a tip - Replies (3)

I have a document from November of 2002 that says there are 3500 tips in a computer program that are part of the BPD files.
As on that date - November 2002, less than 5% = = FIVE PERCENT - - of those tips had been followed up, acted upon.  Tipsters received no call back for most tips received.

The DA's office submitted 400 leads and as of that date only about 100 had been dealt with.

This "cold case" has a lot of potential if the files were to be opened and investigators encouraged to follow the evidence and find this killer.

  DNA on nightgown
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-05-2017, 07:00 PM - Forum: DNA - more technical discussions - No Replies

POlice have taken the pink nightgown to the lab - and that has confused me because she was not wearing the nightgown - - but the fact is there were small spatters of blood on the nightgown - it was JonBenet's blood.  

Spatters, not smears like the killer wiped his hand on the nightgown.  That according to police notes I have seen.

Any thoughts on that?

What could it mean?

Saved By the Cross - Patsy did it theory

Santa Barbara Tennis Club - Chris Wolf did it theory

And here's one that is used to bolster the case against Joe Barnhill Jr.  
In the house of the father, Joe SENIOR, there was a photograph of an airplane that the father was very proud of.  I don't know if he owned it or what the story was behind it but the name of the aircraft, the numbers on the side, were SB2C
