1999 Grand Jury Wanted To Indict JonBenet Ramsey's Parents For Fatal Child Abuse

Today, a Colorado court will release the 1999 indictment of John and Patsy Ramsey, the parents of slain 6-year-old pageant princess JonBenet Ramsey, whom a grand jury wanted to charge for child abuse resulting in death. The District Attorney’s office declined to prosecute those charges and the indictment was kept closed for 14 years. It’s only been released now because a reporter for the Boulder Daily Camera and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press sued to gain access to the sealed document. This week, according to The New York Daily News, “a judge ruled that the indictment signed by the grand jury foreman constituted an official action and must be released,” despite the family’s objections.

“['Toddlers & Tiaras is] very bizarre … Patsy and JonBenet didn’t approach it that way.  We … they just did it for fun … I think about these things now and it makes me cringe.  We were so naïve.  I now believe with all my heart that it’s not a good idea to put your child on public display.”

John Ramsey on his regrets. I’m not sure if I agree that participating in pageants had any correlative relationship to his daughter’s murder. But I can’t blame him for hating “Toddlers & Tiaras.” I mean, it certainly is bizarre. Talk of child beauty pageants aside, I feel awful for this man. His daughter was murdered. His business and reputation were destroyed. His wife died of ovarian cancer. He spent 12 years as a suspect in his own child’s murder before he was cleared of all wrongdoing. Some people get dealt a shitty ass hand. I hope the rest of his life is really uneventful. [Yahoo]
