No photo of this but records show the "elevator door" was cut into thirds and removed from the house when Mike Bynum was in control.

I worked with the production for a short time. My very limited NDA ended when the show aired in April 2019.

I was approached by Miguel Sancho and agreed to help when he made it clear they were not BORG but looking at intruder suspects.


He said it was too bad they couldn't get a family interview - they believed John Ramsey when he said there's be no more interviews after Dr. Phil. I contacted John, flew to Salt lake City, drove to Moab with Sancho and got them the interview. I gave the team a handful of leads, including Jim Benish and the Schonlau brothers.

Within weeks I realized that the team (as a team) was.... dishonest. They had agreed to certain things that they never intended to follow through on (and no, it had nothing to do with money or credit).

I found myself disrespected and bullied (by Miguel Sancho) when I refused to give them certain files. Veiled threats were made - if I didn't cooperate, my relationship with John Ramsey would be damaged. My feeling was that if my relationship with John was that weak, it was certainly not worth crossing my own moral code to save.


Advised to remember my place (housewife with bills v Producers with cash) I was fully expected to "cash in" selling certain files and contacts.  I remembered my place, my personal values, and I quit the project.

Called and asked about the group, I still encouraged others to participate. I did tell those people that I was no longer involved, but I did nothing to harm the project.


I did, and do, warn people to be careful when dealing with either Miguel Sancho and/or David Tomasini. If you make an agreement with them, get it in writing.  Make sure it is signed, witnessed and notarized.   

Their program aired, most of it focused on a suspect I wouldn't have followed for long.  (Clearly their priorities don't match my own.)  But they did clear a few suspects and for that I am pleased.    

The point is, while 95% of my dealings were with Sancho, I would look at this team with a measure of … distrust.  

(Miguel, I expect one day you will see this.  This note's for you.  I said I would keep certain things you said confidential and, unlike you, I keep my word.   My comments here are about working with you as a producer, period.  You should have kept your word.  Money won't buy everyone., but I guess you know that now.  And that yes book isn't so good.)

Investors buy Ramseys' 15th Street home
By MATT SEBASTIAN, Camera Staff Writer
Friday, February 6, 1998
A group of investors bought the former Boulder home of John and Patsy Ramsey on Thursday and pledged to resell it at a later date, donating profits to the JonBenet Ramsey Childrens Foundation.
In a statement released Thursday morning, local attorney Michael Bynum said the house sold for $650,000 to an investor group named after the Ramsey homes address, 755 15th St., L.L.C.
The group, according to Bynums statement, is "composed of individuals assisting the Ramsey family."
Bynum, who in the mid-70s served as a Boulder County deputy district attorney, declined to elaborate on his brief press release. A friend of the Ramseys, Bynum took "Primetime Live" co-host Diane Sawyer on a tour of the house last summer.
Colorado Secretary of State records show 755 15th St. was incorporated Jan. 21 and lists Boulder resident Anne Bork as its registered agent. When asked Thursday about the purchase of the Ramsey home, Bork said, "I dont have any comment on that."
Bynums statement says the group will hold the home "for an as yet undetermined period of time" before offering it for resale. Any profits will go to the JonBenet Ramsey Childrens Foundation, a group set up by the slain 6-year-old's parents.
JonBenet Ramsey was found murdered Dec. 26, 1996, in the basement of the 15th Street home. Over the past year, the children's foundation has purchased several advertisements in the Daily Camera touting a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of JonBenet's killer.
John and Patsy Ramsey, along with their 11-year-old son Burke, haven't lived in the home since JonBenet was found murdered. In July, the couple purchased a home reportedly worth $750,000 in an Atlanta suburb.
The Ramseys bought their 6,800-square-foot Boulder home in 1991 for $500,000. The four-bedroom, 61/2-bathroom Tudor-style home has been renovated since then. Prior to JonBenet's death, the family reportedly turned down a $2 million offer for their house.
According to Bynum's statement, the Ramsey family already had sold the home to a "relocation service" retained by John Ramsey's employer. Whether the employer in question is Access Graphics - the company Ramsey founded - or its former corporate owner, Lockheed Martin, is unknown.
The broker who handled Thursday's sale to the investor group, Joel Ripmaster of Colorado Landmark Realtors, said the relocation service, which he wouldn't name, hired him "late last year" to list the property.
Ripmaster said he couldn't comment on how much the relocation service paid the Ramseys for the house, or when it was originally sold.

  715 15th St.
Posted by: jameson245 - 04-22-2019, 03:56 PM - Forum: Boulder crimes - No Replies

In November 1972, kidnapper Peter Roy Fisher lured two 11-year-old girls into his van as they walked home from a birthday party. He handcuffed the girls together, sexually assaulted them, shot them, then left them for dead after pushing them over a cliff near Gold Hill. One girl miraculously survived the attack. The second girl, Jessica Schaffner, was killed; she lived at 715 15th St., just a few doors down from the Ramseys' home. Fisher is still serving time for the crime.

Officials tour Ramsey home
In preparation for today's presentation on the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation, Boulder police, prosecutors and criminal experts Sunday toured the former 15th Street home of John and Patsy Ramsey.
Six-year-old JonBenet was found murdered in the basement of the 755 15th St. home Dec. 26, 1996. Her parents have remained under an umbrella of suspicion and police plan to make a presentation today of the evidence gathered so far to the Boulder County District Attorney's Office.
Those touring the home Sunday included criminologist Henry Lee, former O.J. Simpson defense attorney Barry Scheck, Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter and Boulder police.
The intent of the tour was to provide officials with a good frame of reference of the home for the presentation, said Hunter spokeswoman Suzzanne Laurion.
The tour was approved by the new owners of the home, Laurion said.
The home is now owned by a group of individuals assisting the Ramseys.

This photo was taken in Boulder, Colorado in the winter of 1998. I was there working on a David Mills documentary.

I like the photo because there are 15 stories connected to that trip - and the photo reminds me of every one.

Userid wrote that there was no evidence JonBenet had been strangled twice.  I would argue with her on that - - it is unquestioned by the experts that she was choked with the cord low on the neck before the cord was moved to it's final position - - - the chain and cross she wore was dragged across her throat leaving a large abrasion.


When I studied the marks, I believe I found a third line as well. That would have been the first attempt.   The killer was vicious.

The curious aspect is Coroner Meyer's verbatim autopsy remarks

[i]Search Warrant 12/29/96. Excerpt[/i]

Quote:Detective Arndt told Your Affiant that she observed Dr. Meyer examine the vaginal area of the victim and heard him state that the victim had received an injury constant with [i]digital penetration of her vagina. Detective Arndt told Your Affiant that Dr. Meyer told her that it was his opinion that the victim had been subjected to sexual contact.[/i]


Which suggests a sexual assault using a finger and [b]not[/b] an injury caused by some unknown instrument, sometimes termed as [i]Instrumental Assault[/i] a bit like the [i]Blunt Force Trauma[/i] phraseology.

Yet nearly everyone assumes a piece of wooden splinter was found inside JonBenet, so how does that square with a Digital Sexual Assault?


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

My response -   When the man broke the paintbrush so he could use part of it in his garrote, a splinter, quite small, stuck to his finger. The digital assault put the splinter in his victim.

  Intenet poster Mame interviewed Judith Phillips - here is part of that transcript.

Mame: when did the police first speak with you?
JP: I think in April, not sure,…… in April……
Mame: and did you ask to be spoken to? Or did they take it upon themselves to…
JP: they called me first and asked if it would be okay if they could interview me down at police headquarters. And I said, sure. Mame: did they want to know more about what type of person Patsy was?
JP: well they asked, they interviewed me 3 times. The first time was short and Steve Thomas and Gosage was there and there was a woman whose name I don't recall, those were the 3 that interviewed me. It was taped and I didn't have a problem with that at all. They asked odd questions like , do you know this person as related to JR? They were naming off at least a half of dozen female names and, no I've never heard of that person before and no, I never knew that person before. And they would ask….
Mame: Not related as relatives, but the connection in terms of his life, who they were?
JP: yeah, women involved with John. They were hinting at an affair. I said, Why did you ask me the names of these women? They said, well, it's believed that JR had had quite a few affairs, not only in Atlanta but also here in Boulder. Do you know of anything? I knew, really none. (Laughs). John has such a devious quality about himself there was no way that he would let anybody know about his trysts whether they were real or not. But I found it interesting the line of, the police line of questions and how it went. Then they asked me if I knew about Patsy, if I saw her anger, if I saw her lose her temper and if I knew if she had ever had any relationships here in Boulder, you know questions like, personality type questions.
Mame: did she?
JP: not that I know of, but I have been told by a friend by a friend of mine who is much more deeply involved in this story than I am, that she met with a woman in Denver that had a health club that had played racquet ball with a, um, ah, I'm trying to think he was. Not an account…..
Mame: an investment person?
JP: An investment person. Yeah, and according to her friend that she knows very well, this investment person who is a man had said that he had a relationship with PR that night.
Mame: of the murder?
JP: yeah, that they had come home from the party at the Whites and Patsy had left the home, and had attended a party where they had a fling going.
Mame: do you believe that?
JP: (couldn't understand)
Mame: How do you know?
JP: How do you know? It's not that I don't disbelieve it, it's like…. You know???
Mame: that's the story that Jann Scott sort of threw out, was that was the line of thinking that they had up with that this boyfriend had come back. JP: yeah, well, I'm trying to investigate that. I have to do it very carefully.
Mame: I hope you'll keep us informed.
JP: I will. I have to be very careful, because I'm sure that she under any circumstances, that this man was apparently a father of the children where JonBenet and Burke attended school.
Mame: your school?
JP: their school. At that time they switched from the public school, to I .. Can't remember the name of it. They were a special satellite school.
mame: a magnet school.
JP: A magnet school. Patsy left, Susan Stine left and Roxy left and took their kids with them.
Mame: a magnet school
JP: a magnet school.
Mame: so it was apparently a father,
JP: yeah, who he did not, … he was married, he did not want anyone to know even if, this is true, can you imagine that he is willing to keep his secret, secret?
Mame: yeah, I can't imagine with all the scrutiny that, … but, you don't know.
JP: uh, huh.
Mame: that's fascinating.
JP: yes, it is fascinating.
Mame: But did you hear that there are good sources that you hear this from are sound enough that it's worth pursuing, that it's worth investigating… (couldn't understand)
JP: there is not one leaf that I would leave unturned in this particular case. I try not to have an opinion of something until I've investigated it further. So, I believe that this is something worth following up on. But I want to be real careful, because if this is true, this man is keeping an incredible secret. So, that's .. so I went from, and I think at the point where the more information that I obtained, especially about the ransom note when Tom and I and our relationship started. He sat down with me at length and showed me what his analysis, what his handwriting analysis that he did for Darnay Hoffman.
Mame: And it's like.. (couldn't understand) terminally (couldn't understand) finance, (couldn't understand) he was called upon.
JP: right, right.
Mame: to do an analysis
JP: (at same time) a handwriting analysis for Darnay Hoffman years ago. And he was one of the few handwriting analyzers that was willing to come out very strongly about that Patsy wrote the ransom note. He did not soft step, didn't fudge at all, which I think a lot of them have a tendency to do, but he really strongly believes, and still to this day believes that Patsy was the author of the ransom note. So you know we would have many conversations about it and that sort of was like the icing on the cake for me.
Mame: um, hum.. and when was that in your timeline approximately?
JP: let's see, probably, when the early spring of 98.
Mame: OK, so about a year and half, a year and a quarter after.
JP: yeah,
Mame: OK. Let me mention what I never knew, I sort of picked this up on Dateline NBC that you did. Your personal opinion is there could have been some incest going on.
JP: yeah, the reason why I believe that is, a couple of things. First of all, this ahhh, to see JonBenet prance around in her very sexually revealing outfits and just the way that she presented herself was shocking for me. I felt that there was something more there than that the eye.. it was just ..
Mame: But at the time you saw her prancing you didn't feel it? You didn't (couldn't understand) the activity, but later…. When you look back or…
JP: no, no, the first time I saw those films on television. I didn't see them while she was alive but..
Mame: but you didn't attend the pagents..
JP: right.
Mame: you had no way of knowing.
JP: right, so the first time I actually saw the footage, was right after her death, right after her murder, and I was shocked. I was absolutely shocked. I thought I do ,, this is not the little girl that I knew at all. It just was shocking.
Mame: sort of like a secret life.
JP: yeah, like another person. Actually another person that I didn't even know. The way that she pranced around and smiled and so sexual, adult sexual moves.
Mame: they really were sexual
JP: yeah
Mame: what else does (couldn't understand) daughter, but that is not a typical
JP: yeah, it's not Shirley Temple on the good ship lollipop, this is something very different, very different and there was a red flag, an intuitive flag that was, I, I just thought this is.. There's something wrong here. That was the first thing. Then as I have tried to put the pieces together that why I felt that Patsy, the person Patsy, the mother Patsy could have ever murdered her child, which I believe that she did. What would compel a mother to do this? And the only theory that makes any sense to me, is the theory that she found John sexually abusing JonBenet that night. That to me makes the only sense.
Mame: because you can't picture her then, bedwetting or…..
JP: no, no, no, no, no. The only thing that makes any sense of her behavior, was she quote" lost it".
Mame: and you think she was losing it towards John, not JonBenet.
JP: I think Patsy suspected it for some time. I think it may have started when JonBenet's hair was dyed blonde because that summer Patsy came home with a big ring on her finger and she was different and so was JonBenet. JonBenet's physical appearance.
