Statement from Boulder City Manager Tim Honey:
"As all of Council and members of our community are aware, Boulder is in the national media spotlight following the tragic death of JonBenet Ramsey. This spotlight has resulted in some criticism, observations and comments about how police are handling the investigation.

They are doing an outstanding job of staying focused on our collective goal in this situation: finding out who killed JonBenet and securing a conviction. We have committed a tremendous amount of resources to this investigation and I have assured the Chief of the continued support of everyone in the City organization, especially our communications division staff, Leslie Aaholm and Kelvin McNeill.
To the community, I remind you that the Boulder Police Department has a long history of accomplished and professional police work.

Incident News Release # 10
Jan. 7 Update on Ramsey Case
The Boulder Police Department continues to actively investigate the Ramsey homicide. Police investigators who were in Georgia and Michigan have all returned to Boulder and will be debriefed by the case supervisors to determine the next steps in the investigation. In both Michigan and Georgia, investigators continued obtaining background information and talking with friends and family members of the Ramseys. In Michigan, investigators executed a search warrant for the Ramsey's home in Charlevoix. That search warrant has been sealed by a judge in Michigan. Investigators were in Michigan from Friday, Jan. 3 through Monday, Jan. 6.
Police were in court this morning requesting that the search warrant for the Ramsey's Boulder home be sealed. Judge MacDonald has sealed that warrent for 30 days.
Other procedural updates are:
  • The Ramsey's legal counsel have offered to respond to some questions supplied by Boulder police last week. We cannot confirm if those responses have been returned to Police at this time. Police will not be releasing information on the questions and answers.
     
  • Police have nothing further to add on the issue concerning the formal questioning of the Ramsey family.
     
  • The Colorado Bureau of Investigations continues to process material related to this investigation. Depending on the type of examination needed, the test results would take weeks to months to complete. Police do not plan to release the results of those lab tests except in court.
     
  • Police have received almost 300 calls on their voice mail tip line. They are monitoring and logging those calls and responding to those that show promise.
     
  • We are aware the Ramsey family has hired private investigators. Private investigators who are looking into this case are entitled to the same information as that being released to the public. These investigators are private citizens.
     
  • The role of the Boulder District Attorney's Office is to provide counsel and legal advice to the Police Department on the preparation of the case. The FBI continues to provide counsel on an as needed basis.
     
Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby has indicated he will make a statement to the Boulder community later this week. We will inform the public as to the specific time when it is confirmed.

  BnJazzy4ever45"
Posted by: Summer Dawn - 01-30-2017, 03:08 PM - Forum: Confessors - Replies (16)

In 2001, someone with the screen name  "BnJazzy4ever45"" posted this on a old Ramsey website, Maketoast:

"I feel so guilty for what I've. Done," the message read. "I was there when the whole thing occurred. I never wanted any part in it, but they said if I didn't help I would be killed as well. I was only 14 when this took place, so I went along with the whole plan."

The e-mail also says whoever killed the 6-year-old beauty queen was a handyman in the Ramsey home who had a key to the family's home.

This person emailed me (as well as jameson) and in return, BPD were contacted regarding this confession.

Unfortunately, after the BPD looked into it, they discovered this was a sick joke someone was playing and the confession was a hoax..

During their investigation they seized our AOL accounts to see what "BnJazzy4ever45" said to us. We couldnt log on for a day or two, lol. It was crazy.

Boulder Police determine that online "confession" to Ramsey murder was hoax

Boulder Police detectives have determined that an online "confession" to the murder of JonBenet Ramsey was a hoax.
A tip was forwarded to the police department several weeks ago that a "confession" to the Ramsey murder was posted on an Internet bulletin board. Investigators filed a search warrant for America Online (AOL) to discover the identity of the person who posted the message. The message claimed that the person had been a witness and reluctant participant in the murder.
After learning the identification of the AOL subscriber known as, "BnJazzy4ever45" detectives went to the person’s location and interviewed them. Detectives determined from their investigation that the "confession" was a hoax and that "BnJazzy4ever45" has no connection to the homicide. The person who posted the "confession" message is a 14-year-old juvenile.
"We would like to thank the local law enforcement agencies and the FBI for their assistance in this location," said Police Chief Mark Beckner.

Parameters for the Conduct of
Formal Police Interviews

These parameters are the Boulder police department's standard operating procedures. Among these typical parameters are requirements that:
  1. parties be interviewed separately;
     
  2. interviews be conducted by Boulder police detectives at a time and location conducive to a productive interview;
     
  3. the interviews be video and/or audio taped;
     
  4. the person being interviewed may be represented by legal counsel and police officers advise them of their legal rights, including the right to not talk to police, and that they may exercise their rights at any time; and
     
  5. only the individual being interviewed, their legal counsel and police be present in the room during the interview.
     
The conversations and discussions with counsel for the Ramsey family concerning a formal interview continue. However, as of this week, counsel for the family have refused to consent to the parameters for formal police interviews. The interviews with the family have not been scheduled.

The Boulder Police Department investigation into the Ramsey homicide continues. This case is the highest priority of the Boulder Police Department. This is an active and ongoing investigation. There are no named suspects, there have been no arrests and there are no arrests pending.
Boulder Police have talked with the counsel for the Ramsey family and made arrangements to return possession of the home to the family and their representatives effective 6:30 p.m. tonight.

It is unknown if the family intends to resume residency at the home. We have no comment on the whereabouts of the family at this time. Police are in the process of setting up an appointment to formally interview the Ramsey family. We expect the family to continue to be cooperative with investigators and the interview is now a matter of scheduling.

Jan 2 Update on Ramsey Case
Boulder Police last night sent five police investigators to Atlanta to continue their investigation of the Ramsey case. They will continue to interview family members, friends, and gather background information. The officers have been authorized to approach the family to schedule an interview with them in Boulder at a later time. The five Boulder Police Officers are: Larry Mason, Tom Trujillo, Jane Harmer, Steve Thomas and Ron Gosage. The officers are expected back sometime Monday.
Boulder Police were completely taken by surprise by the Ramsey's CNN interview, but have no comment on the contents of that interview. However, they do concur with Mrs. Ramsey's statement that she has provided police with hair, blood and handwriting samples.
Evidence is still being taken from the Ramsey home and police hope to conclude that portion of their investigation sometime late Friday or Saturday.
The police have received numerous calls from people around the country and have set up a voice mail number which people call if they wish to leave a message. That number is 303-441-4310.

The adult children were out of state at the time of the incident.
Boulder Police are extending their investigation at the Ramsey home, 755 15th St. in Boulder. There is a tremendous amount of material to evaluate and it's taking more time than previously expected.

Update on Ramsey Case
Sunday, December 29
The body of JonBenet Ramsey has been released to the family and it's expected the body will be flown to Atlanta for burial by the family. The family will accompany the body to Atlanta. We believe this probably occurred today, Sunday.
The family continues to cooperate with the police investigation, although police have not yet conducted interviews with the father and mother. They have been in no condition to be interviewed up to this point. There are a number of people, including some family members, who have provided lengthy interviews and non-testimonial evidence. The non-testimonial evidence includes hair, blood and handwriting samples.
Police are continuing their investigation of the Ramsey home, the principal crime scene. Police have not ruled out any suspects. There are no further details of the case which will be released at this time.
