CBI Concludes Investigation of Computers
(Ramsey Update #49)
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation today provided an oral report to Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby, Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter and Detective Commander John Eller on the findings of their investigation into possible computer tampering. CBI Agent in Charge Mark Wilson’s investigation has concluded the problem was equipment failure, not human intervention, and that no crime was committed.
CBI conducted interviews with all people who have access to information, took the computer apart for examination, and fingerprinted the inside and outside of the computer. A complete computer analysis by CBI’s computer crime division showed there was an intermittent short circuit in the battery back-up to the CMOS BIOS chip (this is the chip that supplies key memory functions such as time, date and password to the computer). The resulting loss of power made it appear as if there might have been improper access of the computer.
The power lapse was caused by a malfunction in the computer. CBI experts determined this was not an electrical power surge or a weather related phenomenon. In the course of the investigation all the computers were examined and all electrical connections were checked.
Both Chief Koby and Boulder District Attorney Hunter said, “We appreciate the great work of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation in this instance. They were quick to respond and reach a resolution. This incident needed to be investigated and we’re relieved that the investigation hasn’t been compromised. We have an outstanding group of officers working together and they will continue to work together as the analysis of this case continues.”
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation was called in on June 13 and they began investigating and interviewing people on June 16. In the course of their investigation, they eliminated the possibility of burglary or any breach of security.

Boulder Police to ask for investigation of
possible theft of computer documents
Ramsey Update # 47
Boulder Police have asked for an investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation into a possible theft of computer documents from a police department computer located in the combined offices of the Boulder County District Attorney and the Boulder Police Department. This is the “war room” used by investigators assigned to the investigation of the JonBenet Ramsey murder.
The police department has confirmed that someone gained access to a computer containing Ramsey case information at approximately 1 a.m. on Saturday, June 7. The office was protected by electronic security and there were no signs of forced entry. Boulder police detectives discovered an anomaly in the computer on Monday morning, June 9 and immediately called for technical assistance. An assessment, conducted by in-house technicians from the police department and the city’s information technology services department, determined the likelihood that a theft of information had occurred.
Technicians from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation were asked to begin an investigation and have made a preliminary examination of the computer equipment that was accessed. They are in the process of conducting further tests. It is not known at this time whether specific information has been removed or not.
Boulder police have hard-copies of the information contained on the computer, however there will be additional work required to verify the accuracy of all computerized reports. Electronic copies will need to be compared against hard copies for any evidence of tampering. According to Detective Commander John Eller, “We don’t believe anything has been lost, but we don’t know what, if anything, has been copied. Whether this will have an impact on this case depends on the outcome of the investigation.”
Additional steps have been taken since this discovery to upgrade the security on individual computers and Commander Eller has asked the investigators to work with the DA’s Office on trying to quickly improve security on the room.
Police moved into the “war room” on June 2. People assigned to this office from the Boulder Police department include one detective supervisor and four detectives. Two attorneys from the District Attorney’s Office, one investigator “on loan” from the Sheriff’s Office, and a third investigator from the DA’s office also are assigned to this room

  Great read!
Posted by: Moop - 01-30-2017, 04:27 PM - Forum: Death of Innocence - No Replies

This is the first book I read about the Ramsey case and this is what convinced me they were innocent.  I highly recommend reading Steve Thomas' book at the same time and it will make everything much clearer that these poor innocent people were subjects of a witch hunt.

RAMSEY UPDATE #44

  • Boulder Police received DNA test results from Cellmark Diagnostics on Tuesday, May 13. This material was sent to Cellmark on March 4, 1997; tests began the week of March 31. There will be no additional information provided on the content of the test results by the Boulder Police.
     
  • Boulder Police Detectives Melissa Hickman and Jane Harmer were in Tucson, Arizona this week to conduct a pre-arranged interview with Kim Ballard. This interview had been arranged through the Tucson Police Department, however, after waiting four hours to conduct the interview, Ms. Ballard declined to be interviewed. This was the second attempt by Boulder Police to interview Ms. Ballard; there will be no additional attempts to interview her. According to Detective Commander John Eller, “At this point, we would have to consider anything Ms. Ballard may say as suspect. We don’t plan to set up other interviews with her."
     
  • Police are still requesting a fifth handwriting sample from Patricia Ramsey. This request is being coordinated through the Boulder District Attorney’s Office.
     
  • Boulder Police are in the in the process of analyzing and evaluating over 13,000 pages of transcripts and various test results. During this phase of the investigation there will be a core group of five Boulder Police detectives, two to four attorney’s from the Boulder DA’s Office, and two investigators from the DA’s Office dedicated to this case.
     
Since January 1, 1997, 470 cases have been assigned to the detective division for follow-up; 364 have been completed. There are 111 cases that merit follow-up, which have not been assigned due to the Ramsey investigation, the investigation of last Friday’s murder of Ruediger Jakob-Chien, and other critical cases. Adds Eller, “We need to work other important cases and thus have reassigned some officers. Should there be a need for more assistance on the Ramsey investigation, we will call in officers as needed.”
NOTE TO MEDIA: Unless otherwise warranted, media inquiries will be responded to between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (MST), Monday through Friday.

District Attorney reacts to Ramsey Ad:
Redaction of autopsy report extended
(Ramsey Release #43)

There follows a letter from Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter responding to the Ramsey’s ad in the May 11, 1997 Boulder Daily Camera.
Second, is the petition from the Boulder County Coroner to extend the redaction of the autopsy report in the JonBenet Ramsey case. The District Court finds that the existing order restricting disclosure should be continued until the Court has ruled on the Coroner’s Petition.
We will have no additional comment on these issues.
