It has been 25 years since JonBenét Ramsey was found dead. There is a new effort to find the person responsible for her murder.
JonBenét’s father and half-brother are petitioning Gov. Jared Polis to hand over the DNA samples the Boulder Police Department has collected and allow a company called Parabon NanoLabs to do DNA testing in the case.
JonBenét’s father, John Ramsey, spoke about the effort to find his daughter’s killer in an interview
“We want to do whatever can be done technically and resource-wise to find the killer of our daughter and if we do that and we can’t, then we will have to live with it. But to not do it is criminal and negligent and lazy,” John Ramsey said.
A Parabon scientist said it could take just a few hours to identify DNA collected from the crime scene of JonBenét’s murder.
“So, it’s like a big puzzle. We have to put all the puzzle pieces back together, little by little by little. What I’m doing all day long is building the family trees of these individuals that are sharing DNA with this unknown suspect,” Parabon’s CeCe Moore said.
John Andrew Ramsey, JonBenét’s half-brother, sent out a tweet after the 60 Minutes interview.
“Hi– Gov. Polis. Parabon and CeCe Moore is the premier shop in the world to successfully hunt child killers. Let’s get to work.” John Andrew Ramsey shared.
There is currently a Change.org petition for “Justice for JonBenét” with over 11,000 signatures.
“JonBenét Ramsey deserves justice and new advances in DNA technology finally make that possible. Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, you are the only person with enough power and independence in the state to put Ramsey DNA testing decisions in the hands of a new agency that’s free from Boulder’s significant history with the case,” the petition creator shared.
