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

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.

Boulder Police Department Response
To Ramsey Attorney’s Letter of 4/23/97
(Ramsey Update #41)
 

The Boulder Police Department has been interested in conducting interviews with John and Patricia Ramsey since the murder of their daughter, JonBenet Ramsey. To date, there have been three specific attempts to schedule interviews with the Ramseys.
The first attempt was immediately following the murder. It was the Boulder Police Department’s expectation that John and Patricia Ramsey would provide interviews prior to leaving Boulder to attend their daughter’s funeral in Atlanta. However, Police were advised by the Ramseys that they had no intention of talking to Police prior to taking the body to Atlanta to be buried.
Police were reluctant to release JonBenet’s body because they were not sure all the necessary forensic work had been completed nor had they had an opportunity to discuss the circumstances of JonBenet’s death with the parents. The body was released to the Ramseys within 24 hours of their request.
The second attempt to obtain an interview was in January. Police had identified the terms of a productive interview and the response from the Ramsey attorney’s, on less than a one-day’s notice, was that they would be willing to present John and Patricia Ramsey only under the following conditions:
  • That the interviews be done together.
     
  • That the interviews be conducted at the Ramsey’s attorney’s office.
     
  • That Patricia Ramsey’s doctor be present during the interview.
     
  • That the attorney’s would specify which Boulder Police Department Officers would conduct the interview.
     
  • That the interview with Patricia Ramsey would not be more than one hour.
     
These conditions were totally unacceptable to the Boulder Police Department.
The third effort to obtain interviews with the Ramseys has occurred over the last few weeks. In an effort to move the interview process forward, the Boulder Police agreed to consider deviating from their normal interview procedures. The last offer of conditions received by the Boulder Police Department from the Ramseys was reviewed with the FBI’s Child Abduction and Serial Killer Unit and based on their advice Police concluded that the conditions were unacceptable. As a result of this review, the times that had been scheduled for an interview were canceled because it was felt the interviews would not be productive.
The Boulder Police continue to request interviews with John and Patricia Ramsey, and their reluctance to provide witness information continues to hinder the Police investigation into the murder of their daughter.
Boulder Police remain willing to discuss conditions for a productive interview.

Ramsey Update April 16 (#40)

  • Expenses incurred by the Boulder Police Department through March 30, 1997 are $119,141. This includes $21,377 expended in December 1996 and an additional $97,763 through March 30, 1997. The 1997 expenditures include: $69,406 for overtime; $18,506 for travel and $9,851 for investigative expenses.
     
  • In response to media inquiries and to clarify inaccurate statements, Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby has the following statement:
     
  • “Mr. and Mrs. Fleet White, Jr. are not suspects in the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation. They are considered key witnesses. The Boulder Police Department appreciates the full cooperation they have received from the Whites since the beginning of their investigation. I feel this response is necessary due to the inaccurate portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. White in certain media publications.”
     
  • The request by the Boulder District Attorney’s Office and Boulder Police Department for a fifth handwriting sample from Patsy Ramsey is still being considered by lawyers for the Ramsey family. Colorado Bureau of Investigation continues to analyze samples previously submitted.
     
  • All Police investigators have returned to Boulder following out-of-state trips to conduct interviews and gather additional information.
     
  • The DNA testing continues at Cellmark. Testing began the week of March 31 and is expected to take four to six weeks to complete.
