As an innocent six-year-old, JonBenet would lose her life and no one could ever have imagined that twenty years later it would still be a mystery. John and Patsy Ramsey were suspected of being responsible for their daughter’s death soon after the body was found.

The case of Hae Min Lee was originally only prominent within Baltimore County of Maryland. It has the trappings of a typical high school murder; a teen is angry at their ex-boyfriend/girlfriend for breaking up with them and as a result, would murder them.

There was clearly a rage in her toward men, which could have something to do with her father being absent all of her life, her grandfather being an abusive alcoholic, and her getting raped and impregnated at the age of fourteen. “’There could well be a violent man in her past with whom she had such an experience, (and) under certain conditions years later she found a way to respond. In a way, Mallory had been the conduit for her rage,’ says psychologist Phyllis Chesler” (Bankston, 1996). She learned at a young age that she could earn money for having sex with men.

Who could have possibly killed this talented, kindhearted person? Who could have been sociopathic enough to strangle an innocent seventeen-year-old girl to death in her car?
