Arrest in JonBenet Ramsey Case

The Rocky Mountain News is reporting that an arrest has been made in the JonBenet Ramsey case in Thailand. Boulder officials are traveling to Thailand now to present evidence to Thai authorities on an unnamed person arrested in on an unrelated sex charge. Who says cold cases never heat up again? No word yet on suspect's identification or relationship to the Ramsey's. For years, many authorities and not a few experts have believed that Jon and Patsy Ramsey -- the parents -- had something to do with her death. Patsy Ramsey died in June.

Update: Text of the statement released by John Ramsey:

"I want to have only very limited comment on today's arrest because I feel it is extremely important to not only let the justice system operate to its conclusion in an orderly manner, but also to avoid feeding the type of media speculation that my wife and I were subjected to for so many years.

"I do want to say, however, that the investigation of the individual arrested today in connection with JonBenet's death was discussed with Patsy and me by the Boulder district attorney's office prior to Patsy's death in June. So Patsy was aware that authorities were close to making an arrest in the case and had she lived to see this day, would no doubt have been as pleased as I am with today's development almost 10 years after our daughter's murder. Words cannot adequately express my gratitude for the efforts of Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy and the members of her investigative team."

Yes, Sir Ree, form a Lynch Mob and Hang'm high, that's the American Media. Looks very much like the Mother and Father of JonBenet really did have nothing to do with the murder.

They will now be portayed as "the parents vindicated" because someone else was arrested. Sadly, this would never have happened under the previous Boulder police/prosecutorial leadership. They were the ones convinced it was the parents.
