Ramsey Case News Release #26
Parameters for the Conduct of
Formal Police Interviews
Since this incident began, the Boulder Police Department has articulated to counsel for the Ramsey family the 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.

Ramsey Case News Release #24
Boulder Crime Stoppers Announce
$100,000 Reward in Jonbenet Ramsey
Boulder County Crime Stoppers officials announced today that a reward fund totaling the amount of $100,000 has been established for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for the murder of JonBonet Ramsey in December of 1996. Earlier reports stated that an award fund has been established by the Ramsey family in the amount of $50,000 and by a national publication in the in the amount of $50,000.
"This information is incorrect," notes Brad Harvey, co-chairman of the non-profit Crime Stoppers organization. "We have been working with the Ramsey family attorneys for the past several weeks as they worked to establish a foundation which will be responsible for the funds," he adds. The Crime Stoppers board of directors will direct the distribution of the funds and make any decisions concerning possible recipients.
The Crime Stoppers programs exist internationally and are designed to assist in solving difficult crimes. Due to the program's ability to take information anonymously, and provide rewards, the program has been very successful. The Ramsey family suggested using the program to assist with the apprehension of the person or persons responsible for the death of their daughter.
"Although this case is somewhat unusual, we hope to provide assistance that will lead to the eventual closure of the case," says Harvey. Individuals who have information that may be pertinent to the case should call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-444-3776. All callers remain anonymous.
Note: Officer Larry Wieda is the President of Crime Stoppers International. He is recognized world wide as an authority on the program. He is the coordinator of the Boulder County Crime Stoppers program.

Ramsey Case News Release #23
Police Seek Information on Author of Letter
Boulder Police today requested assistance from the Shreveport, Louisiana Police Department in attempting to locate the author of an anonymous letter sent to Boulder Police earlier this week. The letter was postmarked in late January, 1997 in Shreveport. The letter contained potentially significant information which is of interest to Boulder investigators.
Boulder Police have not determined if any field investigation trip to Louisiana will be necessary and at this point Boulder police simply want to make contact with the author of the letter to ask some follow-up questions.
The letter was one of the 600 letters Boulder Police have received regarding the Ramsey case. Police also have received over 1300 telephone calls regarding the case. These calls and letters are logged and assigned to follow-up as necessary. To date only 5% of the calls and letters have warranted some form of follow-up.
The author of this letter is asked to contact Boulder Police Detectives at 303-441-3330.

Ramsey Case News Release #17
Media Update for Jan. 14
The City of Boulder is pleased that Boulder County and Globe Magazine have reached a settlement concerning the unauthorized distribution of the Coroner's photographs related to the JonBenet Ramsey homicide. The City commends the County Commissioners and the County Attorney for their swift and decisive action in this matter and are grateful for their continued partnership and support.
The Boulder Police Department stresses that this matter has not distracted from the investigation or from the sole focus in this matter; finding out who is responsible for the murder of JonBenet and ensuring a successful prosecution. The homicide investigation is moving forward according to plan.
The Boulder County Crime Stoppers is coordinating a reward of up to $100,000 for information related to the homicide investigation. Under a pending agreement, the Ramsey family and others will place this reward money with the Boulder County Crime Stoppers program. The Boulder County Crime Stoppers is a non-profit corporation which assists police by anonymously gathering information on crimes.
Boulder Police have offered former FBI agent John Douglas, who has been hired by the Ramsey family, an opportunity to provide insight on the case. Mr. Douglas has been contacted and interviewed by Boulder detectives.
