John Ramsey Has Lingering Suspicions in the Murder of JonBenét
Exonerated in the murder of his daughter, JonBenét, John Ramsey talks about the loss of his wife and his wealth—and the suspicions that still haunt him
In his first in-depth interview since being exonerated in the murder of his daughter, JonBenét, John Ramsey speaks to The Daily Beast about the crime that shattered his life. Twelve years after finding the six-year-old beauty queen strangled in the basement of their Boulder, Colorado home, Ramsey this summer received a letter from the local District Attorney explaining that a new type of DNA test shows that a stranger killed his daughter.
The letter also apologized for the “ongoing, living hell” the Ramseys endured as prime suspects in the case, although Patsy Ramsey, who died of ovarian cancer in 2006, did not live to receive this courtesy.
Once wealthy, Ramsey has shed his plane, his boats and his cars, stopped golfing, stopped sailing. Now he is exhausting his IRAs.
