JonBenet's Parents Meet With Boulder DA

John, Patsy Ramsey Discuss Investigation Into Daughter's Murder

The parents of JonBenet Ramsey, the 6-year-old girl killed in 1996 in their home, met with the Boulder district attorney this week to discuss the case.

John and Patsy Ramsey were in the area to visit John Andrew Ramsey, the adult son of John from his first marriage.

District Attorney Mary Lacy wouldn't comment on the meeting that took place on Wednesday. A family spokesman said the meeting was partly to see if there was anything new in the investigation. They were told that DNA evidence might help solve the high-profile case.

JonBenet Ramsey was found strangled in the family's Boulder home on Dec. 26, 1996.

A DNA sample found on JonBenet's underwear was checked against the FBI's national database without a match. Investigators have said previously that the sample, which was entered into the database in 2003, is from a male who is not a member of the Ramsey family.

The Ramseys were said to be "under the umbrella of suspicion" by then-Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner. A 13-month grand jury investigation ended in 1999 with no indictments returned.

The Boulder District Attorney's Office took over the investigation from Boulder police in December 2002. A year later Lacy publicly agreed with a judge in a civil lawsuit that forensic evidence supports the theory that an intruder killed JonBenet.

The Ramseys currently reside in Michigan.
