Detective's Book Casts Doubt on "Intruder"
New Evidence Brought to Light in the Case of JonBenet Ramsey
By: Joseph Giacalone
The former lead detective in the JonBenet Ramsey case has penned a new self-published book detailing evidence that was not known to the public until now. It appears as if Detective Jim Kolar sheds some new details in the cold case murder of JonBenet. I also sense some frustration with his superiors by his decision to make public evidence in the case in a self-published book.
According to the evidence he discovered, the intruder theory cannot be corroborated. Therefore, someone inside of the house was responsible. In the below video from the Daily Beast, it clearly shows a large cob web in the window entrance where the intruder allegedly entered the Ramsey home. Upon watching the video, a strong argument can be made that this web would have been disturbed by any individual upon entering the location. Jim Kolar also defends his position that the markings discovered on the body were not made by a stun which detectives initially believe.
The JonBenet case is unfortunately a good case for law enforcement to learn from - what not to do. The first step when a child is missing is to completely search the residence. Children often hide inside locations within an area they are most comfortable with, any many times they are found doing just that. Investigators initially took John Ramsey's word for it that the entire house was searched - never doing it themselves. Hours later, John Ramsey found the little girl in the basement and brought the body upstairs, further contaminating any physical evidence at the scene. Crime scene contamination is always a problem in every case, but steps must be taken to mitigate the circumstances.
I'd like to hear your comments and thoughts after watching the video.
