Investigators hoping to solve the 1996 killing of 6-year-old pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey have launched a fresh round of interviews with witnesses that could provide the clue they’ve been missing all these years.
Among the potential witnesses police have contacted is the little girl’s brother, Burke Ramsey. Now 23, he was 9 when his sister’s body was found in the family’s Colorado basement, beaten and strangled.
Ramsey family attorney Lin Wood recently told the Boulder Daily Camera newspaper that a police detective “met with Burke and gave him a card and said, ‘If you want to talk to us, here’s how you would contact me.'”
Larry Schiller, author of a book on the case, “Perfect Murder, Perfect Town,” and a contributor to the Daily Beast news website, said the new investigation comes likely as part of a police mandate to reopen cold cases every few years.
