One of the conspiracies that includes Patsy and Burke Ramsey was the “Bedwetting Rage Theory.” The story is that the older brother Burke killed JonBenet, letting out his pent up rage after she peed her bed and crawled into his in the middle of the night. “The cops first inkling of suspicion came the morning after JonBenet’s body was found in the basement room, when Burke was taken to a friends house without asking a single question about why all the police were in his house or where his sister was.
