You probably know who Jon Benet Ramsey was, if you have ever glanced at a US Weekly in the food shop checkout in the last 25 years. The unexplained murder of the six-year-old beauty queen was the tabloid fodder for as long as most people recall.
In contrast to the shot-and-button glamor and the basic details, but how much does Jon Benet actually know? It’s certainly weirder than you ever imagined.
Jon Benet, a six-year-old, lived in Boulder, Colorado with their family: his mom, Patsy, his uncle, and his older brother Burke at the time of the assassination.
The Ramsey hosted a party in their home in Boulder, Colorado on Christmas night in 1996.
The Ramsey’s set up Jon Benet at around 9 p.m. The following morning at 5 a.m., Patsy Ramsey woke up to find a ransom note in the staircase with three lines. The report suggested Jon Benét had been murdered by someone.
The police have been notified.
It was lacking Jon Benet. Her parents would have to pay $118,000 for a secure return according to the ransom note.
The note indicated that between 8 am and 10 am the kidnappers would call with instructions on how to extract their cash.
Anyone who sent a letter of repentance never reached.
The family and cops waited, but there came no cal. Sometime after the ransom call window, the cops asked Ramsey to check back the house for anything missing or unused as proof.
John was the one who discovered Jon Benet.
After cops had told them to search the building, John and a buddy went to explore the basement. Twenty minutes later; John climbed the stairs with Jon Benet’s head. He discovered her in a cellar backroom.
All blunt force and strangulation triggered Jon Benet’s death.
Her body was displaying even signs of sexual assault. A ton of truly strange things are contained in Ramsey’s murder.
The mystery hasn’t yet been solved, although there are many hypotheses.
Most people suspect that their daughter was killed by the Ramsey’s themselves. Many say the Ramsey’s house was broken up and killed by sexual predator Jon Benet. Nonetheless, there are still many very odd facts that no one can describe.
The note was not typical of the ransom.
According to the investigators, the classification document noticed by the Ramsey’s was very rare. It was 3 pages long first of all. That’s a long time for a ranking comment, really. In addition to, “We have a child, how much cash do we want? What else does it really need to say? “Nothing obviously.The ransom note was incredibly nice about the kidnappers, what they would do with Jon-Benet, and other weird superfluous details, scattered over three sections.
The letter called for precisely $118,000, which was a significant figure for John Ramsey for the safe return of Jon Benet.
Through: $118,000 sounds quite random.
Why not demand a fun $200,000 round?
But for one thing, this could have been exact: John Ramsey had earned almost the same amount of money as a Christmas bonus earlier this month. That could mean one of two things: either the abductors realized this was a reward for John or he wrote himself the letter, trying to make it seem that someone who understood like his bonus was kidnapping.
