    Thumbs down Burke Ramsey has no interest in answering questions

    http://edition.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/10...ion/index.html

    Supporters of the family call it harassment. The brother, Burke Ramsey, has no interest in once again answering questions he has answered for many investigators many times, said the attorney, Lin Wood, of Atlanta, Georgia.

    And yet the mere hint of activity in one of the nation's most famous cold cases has headlines swirling.

    So, what's the story this time? Burke Ramsey was the 9-year-old brother of JonBenet who, by all accounts, slept soundly in his room that Christmas in 1996 while his sister's skull was fractured and she was strangled elsewhere in the house.

    Now, he's 23, and although police investigators aren't talking, the family's lawyer is. Wood said police investigators approached Burke Ramsey on his college campus in the spring, gave him a business card and said that if he wanted to talk about the case, they'd like to hear from him.

    Investigators, no doubt, are hoping that locked in Burke's memory is some clue that could crack the case; maybe it's a detail that he was afraid to mention as a child or as a teenager but that he now wants to discuss.



    But police will have to keep waiting. Wood says his client has declined their latest request to talk.
    M. Lacy: "You know, no-one is really cleared of a homicide until there’s a conviction, in court beyond a reasonable doubt. And I don’t think you will get any prosecutor… unless they were present with the person at the time of the crime… to clear someone."

    Okay, I'll bite: which tiny detail are you referencing?

    There are so many tiny details in this case, I'm not sure.

    I thought the CNN segment with Anderson Cooper and his guest Foreman and Toobin was surprisingly balanced. Foreman even said the DNA could be artifact from some source other than a killer, in so many words. That's unusual at this point for the press.

    Thanks for posting this, madeleine. I missed it. The article is yet another Ramsey spin effort that is an EPIC FAIL: the Ramseys once again REFUSE TO COOPERATE WITH LE. Who woulda' thunk it?

    "University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos declared the letter a 'reckless exoneration.' He went on to state, 'Everyone knows that relative immunity from criminal conviction is something money can buy.
    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"

    I'm not being dramatic, it is all there in the three articles published on this matter. Wood is extremely skilled at making something sound like something it never was.

    I thought it was a balanced presentation, also. A couple of points:

    1. I find it hard to believe that THREE Boulder detectives traveled 1200 miles to walk up to Burke, hand him a card, and ask him to contact them if he'd like to talk. If that's all you wanted, wouldn't you just give him a ring?????
    Three detectives, making contact in person. Nah, there's more to it than that. I say there was more than: "Contact us if you would like to talk." I would say it was rather: "We'd like to ask you some questions." Secondly, I think they wanted to guage his reaction and body language.

    2. I guess it's the first time I saw the video but: Why is Patsy going in to the Boulder Memorial Service in the arms of another lady and John is being led, arm in arm, by the Rev.H?

    Well for some reason this just doesn't surprise me! Does it surprise any of you?

    The above is just my opinion, right or wrong, but please leave it at FFJ.

    I agree with all you're saying here, Learnin, but I think Burke Ramsey is being guarded like a hawk in a steel cage.
    elle: The RST can't handle the truth!
    Just my opinion.

    No. The surprise, and it probably would give me a heart attack, would be if the Ramseys said, Oh, sure, we'd love to help you find the killer of our beloved JonBenet! What do you need? Where do I go? What can I do to help?

    Also, if Lin Wood ever learned to keep his mean trap shut, that would be a shocker, too.

    Wood appeared on the Colorado/Denver (?) Caplis, Silverman radio show last week by himself, as well, and said he is going to sue the BPD--again.

    Oh, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SUE THE BPD!!

    Depositions under oath! Leaks! Let's see ol' Wood hand those out!

    Oh for crying out loud, not THAT threat again! Lin Wood cannot open his mouth without the word "SUE" coming out. It might as well be his middle name.

    And just what is old Lin Sue going to base his frivolous lawsuit on THIS time? The BPD trying to do their job and solve the Ramsey case? Well, we can't have THAT, can we?

    A lawyer named Sue Wood?

    Heck, I'm kind of enjoying watching the Ramseys REFUSE AGAIN to cooperate with the BPD. It's been 14 years! Deja Vu all over again!

    Love the repeat excuses coming out of the RST, too: they don't blame the Ramseys; no reason for the Ramseys to talk to the BPD; they have all the evidence they need already, just wait for a DNA hit and the intruder will magically appear one day; it's only been 14 years, what's the rush; mean old BPD bullies, how dare they; THEY'RE OUT TO GET THE RAMSEYS!

    I swear, I feel like I'm in a time warp.

    This is the oldest PR trick in the book--carry on and on about how cooperative you are when you really are anything but. The Ramseys have been playing this game for years.

    Reminds me of when LaToya Jackson started accusing her father Joseph of sexually molesting her and other family members, back in the mid 90's. The Jackson family told the press LaToya was making it all up, so LaToya's sinister husband/manager kept blathering to the press that LaToya would take a lie detector test "any time, anywhere." So finally some French TV show wanted to have LaToya on, and hook her up to a polygraph on live TV, and have her answer questions about her allegations. It came time to do the show, and suddenly Jack Gordon (hubby/manager) demanded $100k, rather than the previously agreed upon $50K, and the producers said no way. next Jack went around crowing about how cooperative LaToya was, when it was really a big scam.

    Off topic for this thread, sorry, but...

    BobC, I was thinking about you last night....

    Oh, don't get the wrong idea. I'm too old for those fantasies anymore.

    But I was wondering about your comment that you remember people discussing the "dolls" found in the cellar room long ago online.

    I have copies of a lot of those old threads I got from ACR years ago, from the old BNF, Joshua, JW forums, etc. So my question to you is, do you remember anything about when or where those discussions might have taken place? What the hats were? Possible year? Forum? Who the source might have been? That kind of thing, to help me narrow down a search?

    The reason I ask is that I have many years of threads, so just looking one by one in thousands of files is a bit unreasonable.

    Anything you remember would help. Thanks in advance.

    Back to topic....
