"I felt strongly that innocent people had been wronged by the media in a way that was just appalling. The word “appalling” hardly gets there. These people lost their child in a dreadful manner. And two weeks later Jay Leno was making jokes about them. It’s unfathomable to me that you can allow that to happen."    Bill James

From Jim Fisher's website:

Michelle Dresbold:  Another Ramsey Case Sideshow

In December 2006 The Free Press published Sex, Lies, and Handwriting: A Top Expert Reveals the Secrets Hidden in Your Handwriting by a Pittsburgh graphologist named Michelle Dresbold.  The book was written with James Kwalwasser. Generally these pseudoscientific books are harmless, but this one claims to have been written by one of the top experts in the nation in the fields of handwriting identification, personality profiling, and threat analysis. One can only wonder what the real experts in these fields would think of this claim. The author who makes this outrageous assertion on her web site has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and fine arts. She has no education, training or experience in forensic science, law enforcement, law, or criminology. This is as absurd as Elvis Presley walking around with a DEA badge.

A starburst emblem on the book’s dust jacket reads: “with explosive details about the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note.” In the chapter of the book about the Ramsey case, illustrated with handwriting exhibits, Michelle Dresbold concludes that Patsy Ramsey wrote the ransom note found in the house by Mrs. Ramsey. This is a claim made possible by Patsy Ramsey’s recent death. If she were alive it’s doubtful this unfounded claim would have been published. Had it been, the author and the publisher would have been sued by Ramsey attorney Lin Wood. Dead people are safe targets for writers like this.

Cina L. Wong:
Graphologist v. Graphologist

Cina Wong is one of the graphologist/handwriting identification analysts brought into the Ramsey case by New York attorney Darnay Hoffman. Hoffman believed that Patsy Ramsey had murdered JonBenet. In Hoffman’s libel suit against the Ramseys who in their book named Hoffman’s client Christain Wolf as a possible suspect missed by the Ramsey case investigators, the lawyer used the Norfolk, Virginia handwriting analyst as one of his expert witnesses to establish Patsy Ramsey’s guilt. The civil suit was dismissed by federal judge Carnes who made it clear she didn’t think Wong was a qualified forensic document examiner. (Wong had requested to testify for the prosecution before the Ramsey grand jury but the prosecutor in charge of the grand jury process rejected her offer on the same grounds.)

Shortly after the publication of Michelle Dresbold’s book, Cina Wong came across Sex, Lies and Handwriting in a Newport News bookstore and began flipping through it. In the chapter dealing with the Ramsey case, Wong saw photographs of her own Ramsey case handwriting exhibits along with, almost word-for-word, her analysis of the handwriting in the ransom note, handwriting Wong had identified as Patsy Ramsey’s.  Wong decided to file suit in federal court charging the author and publisher of copyright infringement.

In the copyright suit filed in March 2007, Wong submitted hundreds of pages of her Ramsey handwriting analysis, arguing that it was nearly identical to what Dresbold had published in her book. Wong’s attorney said, “All Miss Wong wants is to get credit for her own work and not to have someone else profit from it.” Dresbold, according to Wong, had appeared on a number of television news and talk shows promoting her book, claiming that the Ramsey handwriting analysis was her own.

In October 2007, Wong received a cash settlement from Simon & Schuster along with the promise that future editions of the book (good heavens) will not include Wong’s handwriting report. Moreover, the starburst dust jacket emblem promising “explosive details about the JonBenet Ramsey note” will be removed. According to a publisher’s spokesperson, “we continue to believe that the lawsuit has no merit. But in the interest of moving on, we opted for a settlement without any admission of liability or wrongdoing.” If there is any wrongdoing in this embarrassing Ramsey case sideshow, it’s that major publishers continue to bring out ridiculous books like this one.

Linda was a firm defender of the Ramseys in the first days but got all turned around when the BORG got near her, Jeff Shapiro, Frank Coffman and others.  So when she was named as a possible suspect in the Ramsey book and NY Lawyer Darnay Hoffman became her lawyer, he encouraged her to write a book.  I have no doubt at all that she had a ghost writer and they set out to indict the Ramseys - truth be damned.

The first chapter was sent to me by Darnay Hoffman (Yes, we disagreed on who killed JonBenet, but we became friends regardless.) I share it here.

Posted by: jameson245 - 02-26-2017, 01:01 PM - Forum: Little Girl Blu The JonBenet: Inside Circle Theory - Replies (5)

Little Girl Blu JonBenét Inside Circle Theory -It has now been nearly twenty years since the tragic death of JonBenét Ramsey and the case grows colder. Little Girl Blu sheds new light on this terrible crime to give a different and fresh analysis. By presenting the evidence in a new manner, it shows that previously thought notions of how the murder was committed do not stack up, and that many original suspects provided a number of contradictory statements. Respectful and demonstrative, rather than accusatory, Little Girl Blu gives one of the saddest and most mysterious murder cases in US history, a restored hope that we can at least come closer to solving it, to make sure justice is finally given. Who will stand in JonBenét’s shoes?

  BORG theory turned fact
Posted by: jameson245 - 02-26-2017, 12:34 PM - Forum: The Bonita Papers - No Replies

According to the Internet poster Spade (and not disputed by anyone who had good reason to discredit the report) these are the unedited "notes" of Bonita Sauer, secretary/para-legal to Dan Hoffman.   Bonita intended to write a book based on conversations she had overheard and case documents provided to her boss.   The book was never written, the notes were stolen by Bonita's nephew and sold to the tabloids.

These were the source of a LOT of BORG myths and legends.  Theory once discussed in a closed room became, in some cases, confirmed "fact" and used by the lynch mob to bolster their position and recruit new members.

  Meyer and Deters in PMPT
Posted by: jameson245 - 02-26-2017, 10:45 AM - Forum: Stun Gun - No Replies

John Meyer, a board certified forensic pathologist and the only pathologist who measured and closely examined the injuries on JonBenet, concluded that:

"The injuries on JonBenet's face and back were, in fact, consistent with those produced by a stun gun." (Page 431, PMPT pb)

Also, other pathologists agreed the body of JonBenet would NOT have to be exhumed to determine for sure if the injuries were consistent with stun gun injuries. The photos were proof enough.

"Soon after, Ainsworth learned of a 1988 Larimer County murder in which a stun gun had been used on a thirteen-month-old girl, Michaela Hughes, who had been sexually assaulted and killed. Ainsworth met with Dr. Robert Deters, the pathologist on the case, and showed him the autopsy photos of JonBenet. Deters agreed that the marks were consistent with a stun-gun injury, but he didn't think the body had to be exhumed. Nothing more would be learned by examining the skin tissue." (Page 431, PMPT pb)

  what does the position tell us?
Posted by: jameson245 - 02-26-2017, 10:35 AM - Forum: position of the body - Replies (1)

Let's talk about the position of the body. We know her hands were above her head, not neatly folded on her chest as is normal position for burial. We now her feet were exposed because Fleet White told how he touched her feet and they were cold. I don't think that is the act of a person who loved the child. The blanket being tossed on her, that could have been because the killer didn't want to look at his "work" - it really had not been the crime he imagined - or it may have just been incidental, he tossed her and the blanket in there and didn't carefully place the blanket at all.
