Six year-old JonBenet Ramsey was found murdered in her parents' Boulder, Colorado home on Christmas Day in 1996. The wealth and prominence of her parents, John and Patsy Ramsey; the fact that the young girl was a child actress and model; and the announcement of her brutal demise on Christmas Day ensured intense media coverage. As of 2003 the crime was still unsolved. A lengthy and often criticized investigation had focused attention on her parents, then on various friends and community members but without success in pinpointing the killer.
