JonBenét Ramsey Lawsuit Filed, Release Of Indictment Demanded

jonbenet ramsey lawsuit

It’s been nearly two decadess since JonBenét Ramsey, a child beauty pageant star, was found slain in her family home on Christmas, but the mystery of who murdered the little girl is no closer to being solved.

And while JonBenét Ramsey has not gotten justice, the push to find out exactly what happened to the little girl continues — with a new lawsuit in Colorado demanding the release of a secret indictment brought before a grand jury in 1999.

Charlie Brennan, a Boulder Daily Camera reporter, and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed suit against Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett over the 1999 indictment that alleged serious child abuse and named the girl’s parents.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports that the indictment involving the parents of JonBenét Ramsey was “secretly voted on by the JonBenet Ramsey grand jury in 1999 but never prosecuted,” and the site adds:

“The Camera reported earlier this year that the grand jury voted to indict the slain 6-year-old’s parents on charges of child abuse resulting in death, but that then-District Attorney Alex Hunter refused to sign the document and prosecute the Ramseys.”

While a Boulder Daily Camera reporter is involved, the paper itself is not suing the DA over the Ramsey secret indictment. The parties named in the complaint believe the public is entitled to the information, and attorney Thomas B. Kelley writes:

“The plaintiffs believe… that the indictment is a criminal justice record that reflects official action by the grand jury, and accordingly that it is subject to mandatory disclosure upon request. Alternatively, they argue the indictment should be disclosed to the public because such disclosure would serve the public interest in government transparency and not be contrary to the public interest nor cause undue adverse effect upon the privacy of the individual.”

The parents of JonBenét Ramsey moved from Colorado to Georgia the year after the murder, and mother Patsy Ramsey died in 2006 of ovarian cancer.

    This child deserves justice but I doubt in this life that will ever happen. I recall how horrifying that was and how bungled that investigation appeared to be to those of us who followed the case. Sad.

    We can only learn from the victimization of this little girl. It is interesting that France is banning pageants for girls under 16. Patsy Ramsey was a child beauty queen and I don't think she ever imagined this could happen to her daughter!

    Face It, Own It, See It. There is One Justice for those with the $$$ or a Media Case and Another Justice for those who have to settle for the Public Defender's Office. The Ramsey residence was NOT penetrated by a Magic Ninja who did all these things and made good an Escape, Un-Detected. This has been an Absolute Travesty Of Justice. If the Governors or A.G.s of Colorado were True To Their Oaths, this case would have remained Open and Active !!!

    I believed this 20 years ago and I believe it now: Either one or both of the parents killed her or they know who did and covered it up. The fact that there is no evidence even remotely leading to anyone else is telling, along with the fact they found her body in their basement! This case has stunk from the beginning.

    Obviously, this case shows that it is possible to buy justice. If the parents were ordinary folks they would have been convicted and put away a long time ago.

    I don't believe the parents or the brother killed her. The brother was only 9….child killers just kill,baseball bat, a knife , dad's gun. The way she was killed and hid in the basement…seems like a perverted adult. She was a pageant kid, on display all the time. It would be hard to hide abuse. There was evidence of an intruder in the basement. A broken window, no snow on that side of the house. JonBenet's hair inside a suitcase (like they tried to carry her in it then couldn't fit it out the window) A bed in a spare room was disturbed (like someone might have hid under it) I believe some nut fixated on her at a pageant and maybe attended the parade of homes or the Ramsey Christmas party to learn the layout of the house..anyway, JMO from what I have read on the case.

    Bottom line we will never know the truth About her, Brace yourself for a Laugh, SHE WAS SACRIFICED. That's why it's such a mystery, Think about it . Nothing else make's sense..That's how Some people of Power get their Money.And it can just all of a sudden Disappear.no Indicmate. The Parent's of Jon benet, Sacrificed their kid to the Devil. And they aren't the only one's ?? Wake up .. what they want you to think is fantasy, Is actually a reality. You just need to Believe and think for yourself. Why do the media try so hard to make sure you look at the Devil like a Cartoon Character.And yet they use The force's of Satan to influence the top selling Movie's You think all that sick stuff com'e off the top of their Head? Right.. They got help… It's like this the more evil the movie the more souls they can Corrupt and eventually Take.Don't have all the answer's bit I know enough to know This is why you wont never Hear the truth.
