Who Killed JonBenét Ramsey?

Six-year-old Jonbenét was murdered on December 26, 1996. A hand-written ransom note was left and hours later her body was found in the basement; her hands tied behind her back, tape over her mouth and a cord wrapped around her neck.

In the note, they specifically ask for $118,000, which is close to the bonus John Ramsey received that year.

Upon their arrival, the Boulder police did a terrible job by not searching the inside of the house right away; only searching for signs of forced entry, which they did not find and letting the Ramsey’s have family and friends over causing the crime scene to be contaminated.

Burke gets angry and hits JonBenét on the head which caused the skull fracture found in the autopsy, he does have a history of hitting his sister with objects. In the autopsy report the doctor reported the object that caused the fracture on her skull was a flashlight, one was found in the basement but the Ramsey’s “don’t recall having a flashlight”.
