DNA bombshell emerges in JonBenet Ramsey murder case

 February 14, 2023

Boulder, Colorado police have responded to a new DNA bombshell in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case.

"An 'active investigation continues' into the cold case killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, with help from 'several private DNA laboratories,' police in Boulder, Colorado, said in response to unearthed documents," Fox News reported.

The outlet reported on "an unearthed 1997 DNA test that shows DNA evidence recovered under the girl's fingernails and from her clothes was not a match for members of the family and others close to the household just weeks after the crime."

"The document has reemerged as part of a trove of old case files discussed in a forthcoming book on late investigator Lou Smit, Lou and JonBenet: A Legendary Lawman’s Quest to Solve a Child Beauty Queen’s Murder, by John W. Anderson," reports Fox News.

"We recognize that many articles and books have been written about this tragic homicide," Dionne Waugh, Boulder's public information officer, said in a statement.

"We have not read this newest book which, apparently, contains allegations from the late 1990s," Waugh said.

Waugh said the investigation into the unsolved slaying remains active. Waugh added that police are receiving outside assistance.

"At present, this active investigation continues to receive assistance from federal, state, and local partners," Waugh wrote. "Boulder Police is working with multiple agencies, including the FBI, the District Attorney’s Office, Colorado’s Department of Public Safety, Colorado’s Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and several private DNA laboratories across the country."
