Who Killed JonBenét Ramsey?
This is the question I try to answer on a new episode of The Dr. OZ Show that will explore the intruder theory in depth. Along with Colorado investigator John San Augustin, who presents crime-scene photo evidence that supports this theory, I carefully weigh in on the intruder issues being raised.
JonBenét Ramsey was alive on Christmas night when her father, John, took his sleeping six-year-old up to bed. She seemed safe and sound, but at some point she woke up and ate a piece of pineapple. Would JonBenét sit happily with a stranger in the middle of the night? Is it possible someone who was dressed like Santa was able to fool her? Or was a family member awake with her on the night she was murdered?
When John Ramsey later discovered JonBenét in their basement, bound and strangled to death, he did what most parents would do: He carried his child upstairs in utter shock and disbelief. But how was it that John was the one to find her body? Why did the Boulder PD fail to seal off the crime scene? They allowed John and Patsy Ramsey to walk freely around the house, and this contamination of the scene destroyed the chances of anyone solving the crime.
According to recent allegations by her brother Burke Ramsey, the public has heard false accusations that put Burke into question as the possible killer. It’s an accusation that has no proof to back it up, but has nonetheless become a hot-button topic. In light of the recent $750 million lawsuit Burke Ramsey filed against CBS for “the permanent damage to his reputation,” Dr. Oz wanted to know my honest opinion about whether or not her brother Burke was somehow involved in the murder.
Was it an intruder who killed JonBenét? Or did one of the three people in the Ramsey house carry out this unspeakable act? Watch Dr. OZ this Tuesday February 7 to see what answers I come up with.
