Ramsey case to be reviewed

February 03, 2009|Times Wire Reports

The slaying of JonBenet Ramsey will be investigated as a cold case with all evidence and actions taken 12 years ago reviewed anew, Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner said.

The girl, 6, was found bludgeoned and strangled in the basement of her home in 1996.

L. Lin Wood, an attorney for JonBenet's father, John Ramsey, called the announcement a "positive sign." Wood and Ramsey have been critical of previous police efforts, saying they unfairly focused on the family and ignored other evidence.

Patsy Ramsey, JonBenet's mother and John Ramsey's wife, died of cancer in 2006.

Last year, the district attorney cleared JonBenet's family in the slaying.
