Chris Wolf
#1
Chris Wolf was a freelance journalist who was named as a suspect by his girlfriend.  He later sued the Ramsey’s for naming him as a suspect in their book, “Death of Innocence”.  Quotes below are from the judge’s decision in the civil case which was in favor of the Ramsey’s.  Judge Carnes’ written decision is very supportive of the intruder theory and is too big to be uploaded, but can be found online.
 
·        "Jacqueline Dilson had reported to the Boulder police that she believed her live-in lover, Chris Wolf, might be the person they were seeking. When she couldn't get them to respond, she finally called Patsy's mother, Nedra, and she in turn called Pam, who immediately called Jackie back." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:75).

·        Dilson had spent Christmas Day with Wolf, but he would not stay to have supper with her and her family. Somewhere around 10:00 P.M. Jacqueline went to bed, thinking Wolf had gone off on a spree of some kind or another. At around 5:30 A.M., sounds from the bathroom woke Jackie up, and she realized that Wolf was getting out of the shower. He had left dirty clothes all over the floor. Without explanation of where he'd been, Wolf crawled into bed and went to sleep." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:76).

·        "Later the next day, Dilson and Wolf watched the television news reports of JonBenet's death. To her surprise, she observed him becoming quite agitated. Wolf cursed and said that he believed JonBenet had been sexually abused by her father. For the rest of the evening, Wolf brooded over the case." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:76).

·        "According to Dilson, Wolf hated big business and had a fascination with world political disputes and political violence." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:76).

·        "Most importantly, she said that at one time Chris Wolf had been given a sweatshirt with the initials SBTC (the signature on the ransom note), which stood for Santa Barbara Tennis Club." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:76-77).

·        "We also learned that on January 30 police officers had stopped Wolf at 11:00 A.M. as he drove into Boulder; they discovered he was driving with a suspended license. The woman officer took him to the police station for further questioning when Wolf abruptly told her that the police would make better use of their time by chasing the killer of JonBenet Ramsey. He definitely caught everyone's attention with that remark." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:77).

·        "Detectives Ron Gosage and Steve Thomas started interrogating Chris Wolf with hard questions about our child. When they asked Wolf to write some words from the ransom note, he refused. The police put him in handcuffs, but he still refused. Finally, the two detectives put him in jail, pending the resolution of his suspended license. Later that day Wolf was released." (Quote from Ramsey & Ramsey (2000) in Carnes 2003:77).

·        "By March 1, 1999, we had reported more information on Chris Wolf to the authorities. One person had seen Wolf go into an angry tirade aimed at me after he read an article about our company printed in the Boulder Daily Camera in early 1996. Apparently Wolf accused the company I worked for, Lockheed Martin, of selling arms to South American countries.(SMF P 223; PSMF P 223; The Death of Innocence at 329.)" (Carnes 2003:78).

·        "Forensic document examiner Lloyd Cunningham cannot eliminate plaintiff Chris Wolf as the author of the Ransom Note. (SMF P 279; PSMF P 279.)" (Carnes 2003:30).

·        "Plaintiff's ex-girlfriend has also testified that she was "struck by how the handwriting in the note resembled plaintiff's own handwriting" and believes that he is the note's author. (J. Brungardt Aff. P 43.)" (Carnes 2003:30).

·        "Further, to the extent that the use of a single editing mark might suggest to plaintiff's experts that Mrs. Ramsey was the author, given her bachelor's degree in journalism, one should also note that plaintiff, himself, has a Masters' degree in journalism. (Id. P 13.)" (Carnes 2003:30).

·        "Since 1997, plaintiff {Chris Wolf} has been a long standing suspect of both the Boulder Police Department and the Boulder County District Attorney's Office in the murder investigation. (SMF PP 285-286, 291; PSMF PP 285-286, 291.) Contrary to what the Complaint indicates, Boulder authorities have yet to clear plaintiff of possible involvement in the murder (SMF P 287; PSMF P 287.) Further, he is the only suspect to date to have been arrested in connection with the murder investigation. (SMF P 290; PSMF P 290.)" (Carnes 2003:Note 29).
