Ramsey Update #78
Boulder Police Chief responds to questions about 1997 sexual assault case
A report published this morning in the Dallas Morning News raises the possibility that the murder of JonBenét Ramsey is related to the unsolved sexual assault on a 14-year-old Boulder girl that occurred nine months later, in September 1997.
Chief Mark Beckner said Boulder Police have known about this case for two years and previously looked at the sexual assault in association with the Ramsey murder. While the two cases have some similarities, detectives found no definitive connection at the time. Beckner has asked for detectives to again review the case file to determine if anything more can be done. While detectives again pursue the possibility, Beckner clarified that the two cases have more differences than similarities. "However, in this line of work, you never rule anything out until you've answered all the questions," he said. Because of upcoming interviews with John and Patsy Ramsey, Beckner has decided to decline requests for media interviews at this time. "I don't want to do anything that would potentially jeopardize this opportunity to talk with the parents," he said.
