Ramsey Jonbenet

February 3, 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.

The parents of a slain 6-year-old girl warned Boulder residents on Wednesday that "There's someone out there," and to be careful for their children. "There is a killer on the loose," Patricia Ramsey, JonBenet Ramsey's mother, told CNN from Atlanta in a televised interview. "I don't know who it is. I don't know if it's a he or a she. But if I were a resident of Boulder, I would tell my friends to keep your babies close to you. There's someone out there."

Danielle van Dam. Samantha Runnion. Nicole Timmons. Jahi Turner. Alexis Patterson. Jennifer Short. Elizabeth Smart. The list seems endless. This year, child-snatching seems a national epidemic taking on the biblical proportions of Herod's slaughter of the innocents. As abhorrent as these crimes are, however, child abductions by nonfamily members remain extremely rare; fewer than 100 cases were reported in 2001 among a national population of 59 million children.
