  Werner Spitz lawsuit update
Posted by: Kaligirlsam - 03-09-2017, 10:15 PM - Forum: What is in the news - staying up to date - Replies (1)

NEW- Burke Ramsey's $150 million lawsuit against Dr Werner Spitz
will continue. A Detroit judge today said he needs to hear a recent audiotape where Spitz allegedly said Burke Ramsey killed his sister JonBenet in 1996 in the family's home in Boulder. The defense had asked that the case be dismissed The judge says he won't  make a ruling until he hears that tape. The JonBenet murder case has been world famous since the little girl was killed on Christmas Day or the day after.

JonBenét Ramsey 20 years later: New theories on DNA, family squabbles and sadistic strangers hit the airwaves





KIRK MITCHELL | kmitchell@denverpost.com | 


First-graders at High Peaks Elementary School in Boulder and competitors at child beauty pageants knew her. But on Christmas Day 1996, JonBenét Ramsey was not a household name.
That changed quickly, however, and by New Year’s Day 1997, the little girl’s first name and face were more recognizable in the U.S. and around the world than Miss America 1996 Shawntell Smith of Oklahoma or Miss Universe 1996 Alicia Machado of Venezuala.[Image: jonbenet-ramsey-017.jpg?w=620]
[/url]
JonBenét quickly became the [url=http://blogs.denverpost.com/coldcases/2014/08/06/jonbenet-ramsey-24-today/9070/]only beauty queen people talked about
 after the 6-year-old was brutally murdered in her family’s basement on Dec. 26, 1996. Her beaming face had been plastered on newspapers, magazines and tabloids. National TV shows featured video of the girl during pageants.
“There is no question this case has caught worldwide attention and there continues to be speculation as to who committed this crime,” Boulder police Chief Greg Testa said in a Sept. 1 videotaped statement as the 20th anniversary of JonBenét’s murder approaches.
Boulder police have been widely criticized for their handling of the case. But Testa said the reason he wouldn’t do interviews about it was to maintain the investigation’s integrity. He pointed out that the department processed 1,500 pieces of evidence, took 200 DNA samples, interviewed more than 1,000 people in eight states and investigated more than 20,000 tips, letters and e-mails.
Despite Testa’s defense of his department, a new round of anniversary-driven reports and TV shows are dredging up old stories of Boulder police incompetence and in some cases shedding new light on police missteps. The reports point out that detectives alternately accused JonBenét’s 9-year-old brother and her mother, Patsy, for her death, while hiding the fact that a drop of blood from the likely killer was found on her pajamas.
Some of the new media revelations could be groundbreaking — if the facts are confirmed.
DNA testing
For example, A & E’s two-hour documentary that appeared on Mondaydisclosed that new DNA testing that can identify a person’s racial background reveals that the killer is most likely of Hispanic heritage. Such evidence excludes the Ramsey family and could help detectives hone their investigation to only Hispanic suspects.

But those DNA tests were conducted by Richard Eikelenboom, who was allegedly discredited last month during a Denver trial after a prosecutor got him to admit he was self-trained to conduct DNA profiles, “that he had no direct DNA extraction or analysis experience,” and operates a lab that has not been accredited.
Besides doing DNA forensic work in JonBenét’s case, Eikelenboom has testified in high-profile cases for Timothy Masters, Casey Anthony and David Camm. All three have been acquitted of murder charges. But Eikelenboom said he is accredited in Holland and the U.S. by the American Society of Crime Lab Directors.
Two weeks ago, Eikelenboom entered the unidentified DNA profile into national DNA databases and determined that the donor of the blood found on JonBenét’s panties is 10,000 times more likely to be Hispanic than Caucasian or black. He said Boulder police should enter just the Y-chromosome DNA profile of the donor in the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System to possibly get a so-called familial match.
Boulder police have not indicated whether they are focusing on Hispanic suspects based on the results of DNA tests.
Family fight?
The A & E documentary also solidifies what has already been reported about the telling sequence of JonBenet’s injuries. Boulder detectives have long suggested JonBenét’s death was the tragic result of a domestic incident. One theory presented by Boulder police was that Patsy struck her daughter after the girl wet her parent’s bed late Christmas night and that the garroting of the child’s neck was part of an elaborate cover up.
The documentary quotes a Colorado Springs forensic scientist and a team of Great Britain as saying that half-moon marks on JonBenét’s neck found during the autopsy indicate she was still alive when the chord was placed around her neck, which would show it couldn’t have been part of a post-death cover-up.
Another theory advanced by Boulder police was that her brother Burke cracked her over the head during an argument fueled by jealousy.
Doctor Phil has promised to reveal “shocking, never-before heard” detailsabout the “nation’s most talked about cold case” in his season-opening show on Monday. It’s the first installment of a three-part series based on the first-ever media interviews with Burke Ramsey.

Other TV projects also focus on the Ramsey family as the perpetrators including an in-depth package by CBS News, which reunited some of the case’s original investigators including retired FBI profiler Jim Clemente, world-renowned forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee and James Kolar, the former chief investigator for the Boulder District Attorney’s Office.

The six-part series,  quotes investigators expressing doubt that someone would use a stun gun on JonBenét. The intruder theory says a stun gun caused the marks left on the girl’s neck. A trailer for the series quotes an expert saying that he’d never seen anything like the ransom note left at the house.

Sexual sadist intruder
But many law enforcement experts, including some former Boulder police officers, now believe the killer was not a relative, but a sexual sadist who broke into the home.
In the “Dateline NBC” special, “Who Killed JonBenét?” , correspondent Josh Mankiewicz interviews Bob Whitson, a retired Boulder detective sergeant who was in the Ramsey home the day JonBenét’s body was found.
“The behavior at the scene does not match up” with the Ramseys, Whitson tells Dateline. “It matches up with a sexually sadistic person and a psychopath.”

But despite the myriad theories and potential suspects, Boulder police remain committed to finding the killer.
“Publications and movies offer many theories about how this crime occurred and who is responsible. Facts have been surmised and often distorted, which has led to many conclusions,” Testa said. “We remain focused on this investigation and finding justice for JonBenét.”

  Quick Info about the Garrote
Posted by: Summer Dawn - 03-08-2017, 09:16 PM - Forum: Cord ligature - Garrote - Replies (3)

  • Nature of Cord....
  • "The white cord is flattened and measures approximately 1/4 inch in width. It appears to be made of a white synthetic material."Cords on Wrist. "Tied loosely around the right wrist, overlying the sleeve of the shirt is a white cord. At the knot there is one tail end which measures 5.5 inches in length with a frayed end. 
  • The other tail of the knot measures 15.5 inches in length and ends in a double loop knot. This end of the cord is also frayed."Removal of Cord by Coroner. 
  • "This ligature cord is cut on the right side of the neck and removed. A single black ink mark is placed on the left side of the cut and a double black ink mark on the right side of the cut. The posterior knot is left intact."Wooden Stick at End of Cord. "Extending from the knot on the posterior aspect of the neck are two tails of the knot, one measuring 4 inches in length and having a frayed end, and the other measuring 17 inches in length with the end tied in multiple loops around a length of a round tan-brown wooden stick which measures 4.5 inches in length."
  •  "This wooden stick is irregularly broken at both ends and there are several colors of paint and apparent glistening varnish on the surface. Printed in gold letters on one end of the wooden stick is the word "Korea." The tail end of another word extends from beneath the loops of the cord tied around the stick and is not able to be interpreted."Hair Entangled in Neck Knot. "Blonde hair is entwined in the knot on the posterior aspect of the neck as well as in the cord wrapped around the wooden stick."Cord Around Neck. "Wrapped around the neck with a double knot in the midline of the posterior neck is a length of white cord similar to that described as being tied around the right wrist." 
  • Judge Carnes Decision.
  1. Complicated Knots. "JonBenet's body was bound with complicated rope slipknots and a garrotte attached to her body. (Defs.' Br. In Supp. Of Summ. J. 67 at 19; SMF P 163; PSMF P 163.)" (Carnes 2003:17).

  2. Garrote Handle from Paintbrush. "The garrote consisted of a wooden handle fashioned from the middle of a paintbrush, found in the paint tray in the boiler room. The end of a nylon cord was tied to this wooden handle and, on the other end, was a loop with a slipknot, with JonBenet's neck within the loop. (SMF PP 157-158; PSMF PP 157-158.)" (Carnes 2003:17).

  3. Missing Paintbrush End. "The end portion of the paintbrush used to construct the garrote was never found. (SMF P 159; PSMF P 159.)" (Carnes 2003:18).

  4. Cord Fibers in JBR Bed. "Further, fibers consistent with those of the cord used to make the slip knots and garrote were found on JonBenet's bed. (SMF P 168; PSMF P 168.)


 
Were Knots Sophisticated?
  • "The slipknots and the garrote are both sophisticated bondage devices designed to give control to the user. (SMF PP 161, 164; PSMF PP 161, 164.)" (Carnes 2003:17). "Evidence from these devices suggests they were made by someone with expertise using rope and cords, which cords could not be found or "sourced" within defendants' home. (SMF P 169; PSMF P 169.)" (Carnes 2003:17).
 
NO evidence suggests the Ramseys knew how to tie any knots
  •  "No evidence exists that either defendant knew how to tie such knots. (SMF P 162; PSMF P 162.)" (Carnes 2003:18).

  And he UPDATED IT!

He updated the garbage!

"Psychotherapist and author Laurence L. Smith (M.S. Criminal Psychology University of Chicago) recently published an updated book on the JonBenet Ramsey murder case titled, 'The Last Christmas of JonBenet Ramsey: A Freakish accident, murderous cover-up, and a Shameless plea-bargain.' His December 2016 publication includes the corroboration of the freakish accident that served as a prelude to the murderous cover-up that followed and the culmination 7 years later in a concealed plea bargain."

"These heretofore unknown details have resulted in a plethora of theoretical conjecturing by others in many various publication forums. In September of 2016 CBS aired a 4-hour documentary titled ' The JonBenet Ramsey Case'. This documentary did not include the 2 major details disclosed in Author' Smith's December, 2016 publication."

"The conclusions and logic reached by the group of very renown experts in law enforcement related fields participating in the CBS documentary so mirrored the conclusions of Author Smith's initial book on the case published in late 2015 that many believed the CBS Documentary was fashioned around it, save for one non-expert panelist hinting unjustifiably at the possible involvement by son Burke Ramsey."

In 2006, the forums were talking about a beaver hair found on the tape and a wolf/dog hair was found on her hand.  We had been told the BPD went through the closet floors using sticky tape to collect fibers and didn't find matching hairs so everyone started talking about the dogs owned by people like Mike Helgoth.

Looking for the source of the hair information.

  Examples of BORG reasoning
Posted by: jameson245 - 03-07-2017, 12:11 PM - Forum: We Are the BORG. - No Replies

So a Queen BORG posted this after a certain TV show aired.


"When I saw the sound bite of "There was DNA on her body and IT DIDN'T BELONG TO ANYONE IN THE FAMILY" my blood pressure went off the cuff."

"I can't watch it. I can't. It is so upsetting to see how much the Ramsey spin machine has taken the truth and hidden if far away under red herrings."

"Yes foreign DNA was found on JonBenet BUT IT MEANS NOTHING. I venture to guess we all have some sort of foreign DNA on us. If this DNA had been found on the note, on the pen, or anywhere else then maybe but it wasn't."


my comment -
I had to laugh at the last bit.  Foreign DNA found co-mingled with JonBenét's blood in her panties - blood that resulted from a sexual assault on the night she was killed - - THAT can be ignored.  But she would have paid attention to DNA found on a pad or pen or "anywhere else".

THAT is BORG mentality.

We know Charlie Brenna was mislead and reversed himself more than once saying he had believed sources who had not been wrong in other stories.

He published that there were no footprints in the snow - - but the crime scene photos showed there was little to no snow on the south side of the house.

He published that John had been the pilot in the flight to Atlanta - but he was wrong there as well.

Use this thread to show examples like that.
