  The earlier 911 call
Posted by: jameson245 - 07-15-2017, 07:06 PM - Forum: 911 call - Replies (8)

During the Christmas party on the night of December 23rd, 1996, someone from the Ramsey house dialed 911 and then hung up.

No one publicly claimed responsibility for that call, but it has generally been accepted that the call was made by Fleet White - a mistake, not a call for help.

The police responded to the call. They rang the doorbell which was actually linked to the landline phone.  The phone was answered by a child who then gave the phone to Susan Stine.  She assured the police that everything was fine, there was no trouble there, and that ended the conversation. At that time Susan asked the other guests if they had called 911 and no one took credit for the call, but later Fleet said it may have been he misdialed.  

Some have speculated that the call was made by the killer who wanted to see how quickly police would respond to a 911 call.  

Personally, I really don't see that happening.  The killer, if he intended to leave that ransom note and actually take JonBenet from her house, would have already been far from the house when the note was found - - so what difference would it make if the police responded in 2 minutes, 10 or 20?  

Fleet White's mother was ill in another state and he was on the phone discussing and arranging necessary treatment options.  The phone had several lines out and it may be that he instinctively pressed 9 for an outside line (I really don't know) but accidental 911 calls are not at all rare or evidence of guilt.

I was asked about this call so decided to include the information here.  If anyone has something to add, post it or let me know via email.  jameson245@aol.com

Conclusion Audio 911

After extensive processing and analysis, we conclude that recordings of the 911 emergency call made by Patsy Ramsey to report the kidnapping of her daughter JonBenét do not contain any audible conversation between any of the Ramseys following Patsy's hanging up the phone. There are too many discrepancies between the expectations of voice characteristics and the characteristics of the noises which some have reported as conversation for the hypothesis of additional conversation on the recording to be accepted. There appear instead to be several different noises with different characteristics, including at least one that has a cadence and is repeated. It is suggested that the combinations of these noises provide merely an appearance of conversation, particularly to wishful thinkers after the idea of conversation has been suggested to them. Unfortunately this noise has not only been falsely portrayed as conversation, but the idea that it is conversation has been boot.

  Why Boulder Rapists are rarely on trial

Rape Kits Can be Hard to Find for College Students
Last Updated by RMPBS News Staff, Kristin Jones on Jan 26, 2017 at 3:29 pm  
Jada Garber, tall and confident, was entering her senior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011 when she was forced into a group that she never wanted to join. She became the one out of five women who is sexually assaulted during her time in college.
The man who attacked her, Davin Burke-Reinhart, was convicted on two counts of felony sexual assault in 2012. That made him part of a much more exclusive group. Only about 3 percent of rapists ever spend a day in jail, the Justice Department has found.

Jada Garber stands outside of her Steamboat Springs, Colo., home on Nov. 9, 2014. Garber was entering her senior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2011 when she was sexually assaulted. Forensic evidence gathered helped convict her assailant, but the process was somewhat haphazard because proper sex assault exams are not available anywhere on CU’s campus or in Boulder County.
What made the difference between Garber’s case and thousands of others that aren’t successfully prosecuted?
Foremost, the physical forensic evidence collected in the hours after the attack.
“My case would have been a lot different” without that, Garber says. “The evidence would have been washed away in the shower.”
Boulder sex crimes prosecutor Katharina Booth says Garber’s case illustrates the importance of sexual assault forensic exams, often referred to as SANE exams or rape kits. The exams can reveal invisible injuries and collect crucial DNA evidence that can help put rapists behind bars.
“For the survivor, it’s important for them to know they have been medically cleared, that they are getting proper medical care,” says Booth. “As a prosecutor, the SANE exam often gives us vital evidence that helps us prove fundamental elements of the crime of sexual assault.”
But CU’s 30,000 students can’t get an exam anywhere on the Boulder campus, including the student health center. The exams also aren’t offered at any hospital in the city, or, for that matter, anywhere in Boulder County.
The nearest hospital that offers these exams is in Westminster, 20 miles away. And because waits can be long there at St. Anthony North Hospital, CU advises its students who have been sexually assaulted to go to Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, a 50-minute drive on a good day.
“It’s dumbfounding to me, for a place like Boulder County, that we do not have the ability to have sexual assault survivors get a SANE exam done,” says Booth.
Boulder prosecutor Katharina Booth at the Boulder County Justice Center in Boulder, Colo., on Sept. 30, 2014. Booth cites the importance of sexual assault forensic exams, often referred to as SANE exams or rape kits, to the success of prosecuting cases. “As a prosecutor, the SANE exam often gives us vital evidence that helps us prove fundamental elements of the crime of sexual assault.” The exams can reveal invisible injuries and collect crucial DNA evidence that can help put rapists behind bars.
CU isn’t alone in not offering the SANE exam, a Rocky Mountain PBS I-News investigation has found.
Of the top 100 colleges as ranked by U.S. News and World Report for 2014, only four provide the exams in their student health centers. Twenty-two schools offer them at university-affiliated hospitals, according to a survey conducted by CU religious studies professor Lucas Carmichael and recent CU graduate Nevada Drollinger-Smith.
The Obama administration has called on colleges to do more to help victims of sexual assault.
CU is one of more than 80 colleges under investigation for civil rights violations related to their handling of sexual violence.
Some colleges – and by law, all in California – have enforced a yes-means-yes concept on campus, requiring affirmative consent for all sexual contact, in hopes of decreasing the incidence of assault.
Still, colleges aren’t required by law to provide forensic exams, or to make it easy for their students to get them. In Colorado, only Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction provides the exam at a hospital adjacent to campus.
Colorado’s second-largest college town, Fort Collins, also lacks a hospital that offers SANE exams. The 25,000 students at Colorado State University’s main campus must also travel to Loveland to be examined.
College officials say it would be difficult to provide forensic exams on campus. Most student health centers aren’t open at night and on weekends, when many assaults happen.
Jessica Ladd-Webert, who leads the victim assistance office at CU, notes that forensic exams require very specific training.
“Right now, we want to make sure that someone can go to a specific SANE nurse, a 24-hour, well-functioning professional SANE program, to get these exams done,” said Ladd-Webert. “We don’t want someone fumbling through instructions who doesn’t really know what they’re doing to someone who has just experienced a trauma.”
But a fumbling exam, a self-exam at that, was just what Garber got.
Unlike most sexual assault survivors, Garber reported the crime immediately, first to a friend and then at Boulder Community Hospital.
Without trained sexual assault nurse examiners or rape kits on hand, the hospital couldn’t give her medical attention or collect evidence. Instead, she was driven in the back of police car to the Boulder police station. There, she was coached to do her own exam, in a police station interrogation room.
“They brought in a female officer to give me a debriefing on what kind of swabs I needed to be doing on myself,” says Garber. “They gave me a few long Q-Tips, and asked me to swab a few places on my body, and then she took pictures of a few random cuts that I had had and any kind of bruises that I had on my body.”
After all that, the hospitals in Westminster and Loveland were just too far away.
“At this point, I’d already had to experience it, and then tell (her friend) Ben about it, then tell Boulder County (hospital) about it, and then tell the police about it,” says Garber. “And it was kind of just exhausting. We’d been doing it for four hours or so after giving my statements. I think Ben and I walked home from the police station at about 7 in the morning.”
Other sexual assault survivors give up long before Garber did, says Booth.
“I think we miss a large majority of our sexual assault survivors coming forward, getting the care they need or deciding to report to police, because when they’re turned away (from the hospital) they go home,” says Booth. “They crawl back in bed.”
Running 24-hour SANE programs can be costly, says Elyse Diewald, who coordinates the sexual assault nurse examiners at Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland.

Liz Hardin, center, an emergency department nurse, and Joanne Knuppe, right, an obstetrics nurse, watch forensic nurse Kim Nash, left, trims Emma Agnew’s fingernails as Nash leads a training session for Sex Assault Forensic Exams on Oct. 2, 2014 at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colo. For the training, Agnew portrayed a woman who’d been a assaulted. Of the top 100 colleges as ranked by U.S. News and World Report for 2014, only four provide the exams in their student health center. Colleges cite the high cost of training and maintaining a SANE program as reason for not having them on campus.
The costs of training new nurses, paying for their on-call hours and their continuing education add up, says Diewald, to around $150,000 to $160,000 a year. Only part of that cost is recouped through law enforcement agencies, which pay for rape kits under Colorado law.
“But it’s something we do as a service to the community and because these are patients that need to be seen and deserve to be taken care of,” Diewald says.
The Boulder District Attorney’s office is working to bring a SANE program to Boulder Community Hospital. Hospital spokesman Rich Sheehan said that the hospital was working out the costs of offering exams, and hoped to do so by early next year.
Prosecutor Booth says the whole community, including CU, bears responsibility for making sure Boulder residents have access to forensic exams.
A handful of colleges elsewhere have found affordable ways to offer forensic exams on campus.
At the University of Florida in Gainesville, campus advocates found that assault survivors were waiting hours at the university hospital emergency room. So the university used non-profit funding to train nurses at the student health center to give the exams.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill provides its nurse practitioners with the training as part of a “core service” offered to students.
Both schools said they already had most of the equipment and exam space they need to give the exams, though they aren’t offered around the clock.
Like the University of Florida, Colorado Mesa University found that its students had difficulty accessing SANE exams after reporting assaults. Katie, who asked that her last name not be used to protect her privacy, was one of them.
Katie had been attending the university for only two months when she says she was assaulted by an acquaintance on a Friday night in March.
“I woke up in my dorm room, and I just remember feeling really upset, and not knowing what to do,” she says. “I didn’t really know how to respond to it.”
A friend called the police, and the university’s sexual assault response program. But when Katie arrived at St. Mary’s Hospital, there was no nurse available to give her a forensic exam. She had to wait until the next day.
“I just wanted to shower and feel clean,” says Katie.
In August, CMU started paying into a collaborative of on-call SANE nurses to make the exam available at Grand Junction’s Community Hospital, adjacent to the campus. The university says more nurses are needed to make sure students who report an assault don’t have to wait, like Katie did.
Eight U.S. senators introduced a bipartisan bill in July that would require colleges to provide information on their websites about the nearest medical facility offering SANE exams, as well as options for transportation and reimbursement. That’s more than most colleges do now.
Danny Sandoval, who directs CMU’s advocacy and health office, says colleges shouldn’t wait for the law to make the exams available to students.
“You just have to find the resources, you have to be able to get the help of people around you to get this service given to students,” says Sandoval.
He says that universities have been increasingly focused on complying with federal requirements related to sexual violence, and that’s a start.
“Maybe the better perspective is, how do I take care of the student that’s right in front of me?” says Sandoval. “It starts with the healing process, and the exam is part of the healing process.”

Former Boulder County deputy sentenced to 18 months in Internet child sex exploitation case
20 years of probation will follow term
By Pierrette J. Shields Longmont Times-Call
Posted:   11/27/2012 11:16:21 AM MST | Updated:   5 years ago

BOULDER -- A former Boulder County deputy wept as former co-workers cuffed him and led him out of the courtroom Tuesday morning after a Boulder District judge sentenced him to a short prison term and 20 years of intensively supervised sex offender probation on Internet child exploitation charges.
During the hearing, Rick Ferguson apologized to his former co-workers, family and community for his behavior, which included more than 900 sexually explicit online chats with people identified as girl as young as 11 years old. Boulder District Judge Thomas Mulvahill said more than 200 of those chats were conducted on Boulder County Sheriff's Office computers while Ferguson was on duty. Mulvahill said a prison term was a necessary component to the sentence.
"If you give me the benefit of the doubt I can change," Ferguson told the judge as he wept through some of his comments to the court before Mulvahill's decision.
Mulvahill said he believed Ferguson was sincere and is making genuine effort in treatment.
"Do I think Mr. Ferguson can be safe in the community? I do. I think he can be safe in the community if he is appropriately structured and contained," Mulvahill said.
Ferguson pleaded guilty in August to felony sexual exploitation of a child, felony obscenity and official misconduct. Seven other charges were dismissed under the deal. Mulvahill sentenced Ferguson to 18 months in prison, with credit for 65 days served, and 20 years of intensively supervised sex offender probation, including a requirement that he have no contact with anyone younger than 18 until his treatment team determines that it is safe.

Mulvahill said defense arguments that the charges against Ferguson were "a political decision to kick a cop while he is down" and that Ferguson has been punished more severely than others in his position because he was a police officer are unfounded.
"Law enforcement officers should be held to a higher standard," Mulvahill said, adding that the community must be able to trust law enforcement and that it was particularly aggravating for Ferguson's case that he conducted chats while working.
According to the sheriff's office, county information technology employees noticed unusual activity on the laptop in Ferguson's patrol car and uncovered the sexually explicit conversations. Further investigation revealed that the conversations were with people on the Internet who claimed to be young girls, according to reports. District attorney investigators and sheriff's investigators secured a search warrant for Ferguson's Lafayette home and seized his personal computers, which were also searched.
Mulvahill said that Ferguson's cooperation with investigators -- which included a confession -- his decision to seek treatment before conviction, progress he has made in treatment and his family's support were all mitigating circumstances. However, he said it was problematic that Ferguson had engaged in the behavior since the 1990s and did not seek help before he was caught.
Ferguson initially entered pleas of not guilty to the charges and was scheduled for a trial to begin Dec. 10. The plea spared him the trial and any lengthy prison time that could have come with multiple felony convictions.
Defense attorney Larry Mertes said Ferguson began struggling with a sexual addiction after he served as a detective on a case in the 1980s in which a murder victim had been dismembered and placed in a septic tank. Ferguson helped to retrieve the body parts, which he later learned belonged to a man who attended high school with him. Mertes said he suffered PTSD from the case and that therapy showed he treated the resulting numbness by seeking excitement in online sexual conquests.
Mertes said Ferguson decided to remain in the Broomfield County Jail for 65 days because he believed he needed to pay for his crimes and that he was "extremely proud" of Ferguson for working with investigations, accepting responsibility and seeking treatment.
Mulvahill said it was likely that Ferguson would spend "significantly less" time than 18 months in prison and that he must report immediately to probation upon his release.

Alie Berrelez: Berrelez was playing with her baby brother in front of her family's Englewood apartment complex when she was kidnapped May 18, 1993. For four days, police combed the metro area before Yogi, a common-looking bloodhound, led police to the girl's body near the mouth of Deer Creek Canyon.

Alie's body was concealed in a duffel bag and dumped into a ravine. Police questioned Nicholas R. Stofer as a possible suspect, but Stofer eventually was cleared from suspicion.

Out of her death came the Alie Foundation, an advocacy group that buys bloodhounds for police departments.

Jakeob McKnight: His parents reported him missing July 21, 1991, after he failed to return from playing with his brother and two friends at a swimming hole near the family home. Two days later, police found the body of Jakeob near an uprooted tree in the tall grass of the Bear Creek Greenbelt in metro Denver, about a mile from his family's south Lakewood home.
Police investigators targeted John Ramsey "Felix" Chinn immediately after the murder. Chinn reportedly admitted that he spent time with Jakeob and other boys in the greenbelt area, including swimming with them for 45 minutes. Following intense scrutiny of Chinn's background, though, he was never charged with the murder.

The 10-year-old was stabbed more than a dozen times in the attack. Jakeob was going to enter the fifth grade at Bear Creek Elementary. He had a passion for fishing.

  Tracy Neef
Posted by: jameson245 - 06-13-2017, 10:22 AM - Forum: Colorado crimes - Replies (2)

Tracy Neef: How did 7-year-old Tracy Marie Neef vanish from her elementary school and end up dead a quarter-mile west of Barker Dam near Nederland? It's a homicide that has puzzled investigators since the morning of March 16, 1984.
That's when Tracy's mother dropped her first-grader off at Bertha Heid Elementary School in Thornton. But school officials reported that Tracy never attended school that day. Her body was found around 5 p.m. about 30 feet from a road off Boulder County 119.

Next to Tracy's body were her school supplies. Her mother didn't realize her daughter hadn't made it into the school building until she went to pick up Tracy from school.

Authorities ruled that the girl died between 10 a.m. and noon. The official cause of death was asphyxiation.

Several suspects mentioned in the Ramsey investigation are also mentioned as persons of interest in the Neef case.    This was a concern to Lou Smit as were a couple other crimes against children.  I have letters from Lou to Law Enforcement where he complains that these good leads, some with suspect names attached, were given to the police and disappeared into what Lou described as a "black hole".

Steven Wicks and Ronald DeFond: A passer-by driving in rural Adams County found the bodies of Steven and Ronald, two young boys kidnapped and murdered as they walked to buy ice cream at a grocery store in central Denver the afternoon of March 8, 1980.
Steven, 10, and Ronald, 7, left Ronald's home around 2:30 p.m. to walk about a block for ice cream at a grocery story on East Colfax Avenue and Williams Street. The bodies of the two boys were found about 90 minutes later, dumped along Tower Road south of East 56th Avenue.

Each had been shot once in the head. Both boys later died at Denver Health Medical Center, formerly Denver General Hospital.

Sheriff's investigators say their prime suspect in the case died several years ago. However, the case has not been officially closed.
