John Ramsey Alleges Boulder Officer's Dismissive Remark Amidst Ongoing Murder Case

 June 4, 2024

The unresolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey continues to stir deep emotions and legal efforts nearly three decades after the incident.

According to Fox News, John Ramsey claims a Colorado police officer told him they are waiting for him to die, suggesting a lack of progress in his daughter's case.

He is also concerned that the Boulder Police Department may have lost critical items that could be tested for DNA evidence. John Ramsey relentlessly challenges the Boulder Police Department (BPD) to solve his daughter's 1996 murder case, advocating for independent DNA testing and investigating methods.

John Ramsey's Disturbing Allegation Deepens Rift with BPD

Found deceased in her Boulder, Colorado home on December 26, 1996, JonBenet Ramsey's death was gruesome, marked by strangulation and a severe skull fracture. Initial suspicions landed on her parents, John and his wife Patsy Ramsey, who were later acquitted.

According to Ramsey, despite the passage of years, crucial evidence, including JonBenet’s clothing and items found at the scene, remains insufficiently examined for DNA. This has fueled his advocacy for forensic genetic genealogy techniques and a federal takeover of the investigation.

Paul Woodward, an investigative journalist, has voiced support for the necessity of further examination and innovation in forensic science to aid the case.

Challenging the Status Quo: Calls for Enhanced DNA Testing

In 2022, John Ramsey appealed to Colorado Governor Jared Polis, seeking permission for outside experts to conduct independent DNA tests, a move that has yet to be realized. At the 2024 CrimeCon, he expressed concerns about the potential loss of critical evidence and a resolute commitment to his daughter's justice.

Interim Boulder Police Chief Stephen Redfearn has countered Ramsey’s criticisms by detailing the department's ongoing efforts which include collaborations with DNA specialists and continuous updates to the Ramsey family.

Despite these assertions from BPD, John Ramsey remains skeptical about the thoroughness of the department’s efforts over the years. His worry extends to the integrity of key evidence, which he fears may have been compromised or lost over time.

John Ramsey expressed grave concerns about the treatment and comments from within the police department:

We heard, reliably, that one of the members of the police department — I don't know who — told a journalist, 'We're just waiting for John Ramsey to die. It's just disgusting, but it's not out of character at all,

Fighting for Legislative Change and Technological Advancements

On a broader scale, John Ramsey’s fight extends beyond his own family's tragedy. He supports the proposed Homicide Victims' Families' Rights Act, aiming to ensure that other families do not experience similar frustrations with the criminal justice system. His son, John Andrew Ramsey, has expressed readiness to continue advocating for this cause should the need arise, asserting the family’s long-term commitment to justice.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis reflected on the case's longevity and technological advances that might eventually lead to a resolution. He optimistically remarked that JonBenet's killer should remain wary due to evolving forensic technologies.

The murder of JonBenet Ramsey remains an emblematic case, highlighting issues of evidence handling, forensic technology, and the intricacies of family-driven justice campaigns. Through John Ramsey's unwavering resolve and the advancements in DNA testing, there lies a continued hope for solving one of the most infamous and heart-wrenching cases in American criminal history.
