In January of 1997 Jameson245 appeared on a JonBenet Ramsey discussion board called The Boulder News Forum. She had information on the case that had not yet been revealed to the public and other posters wondered where and how she came by this information. For years no one has been able to make the connection. It didn't help the investigation by amateur sleuths early on that jameson represented herself as a man. When she was outted as a "bread baking housewife named Susan Bennett from Hickory, North Carolina," jameson made no apologies for the misrepresentation. She stated simply that her identity was no one's business and further stated that she was "forced" to lie to protect her true identity. From whom was she protecting her identity, one has to wonder. jameson, in fact, REQUIRED all posters to phone or snail mail her their true identity and $50.00 in order to post on her forum. Typical Susan Bennett double standard. Once her identity was revealed, she made it clear that her last name was in no way connected to John Bennett Ramsey - and no connection was ever made. One of the few times jameson actually told the truth. For more on early jameson, do a google search on "Phone Losers" (PLA) + jameson They still have a lot of the first posts. In the beginning jameson had a lot of personal information about the Ramsey family as well as case-related information. For instance, in a few of her early posts on BNF she alluded to marital problems between Patsy and John. Only someone close to the family would know this, not someone in Hickory, North Carolina with no ties to the Ramsey family. Perhaps a friend of the family in Boulder? Or someone she used to know well that was feeding her information from a friend of the family in Boulder? As it turns out, this is the most likely scenario. ~~~~~~~~~~ The first thread concerning finding more information on Susan Bennett, aka jameson, was just that, a fact finding thread. Below I will give the information that we now know for a fact. We will leave it to FFJ members to draw conclusions. Fact: Susan I. Bennett and James P. Bennett once lived in a same house owned by Charles E. Ham and Jeanine Forman-Ham in Dalton, Massachusetts - the phone number for both the Bennett's and Forman-Ham was the same. Fact: Charles E. Ham and W. Shufelt were associated with the same address in Watervliet, NY. Susan Bennett's maiden name is Shufelt. Jeanine Forman-Ham at some point (we think between '94 & '96), moved to Boulder and became a volunteer for a local Boulder newsletter. http://www.sustainability.org/site/40-Archives/Newsletters/Sol-News-6/newslet/volunt.htm "Jeanine Forman-Ham is a delightful ray of sunshine that warms our office periodically by answering phone calls, mailing newsletters and performing general office work." _____________________________________________ Fact: Jeanine Forman-Ham's address in Boulder lived or lives at 315 Arapahoe Ave. Fact: Barbara Kostanick's address in Boulder - 355 Arapahoe Ln. These addresses are approximately .02 miles apart. Fact: Barbara Kostanick is the woman who tried to tell BPD that JonBenet told her on Christmas Eve Santa was going to pay her a secret visit. When the BPD didn't seem interested in this information, Barbara asked Susan Stine to talk to BPD for her. Susan Stine called the BPD on Barbara's behalf. One would have to assume only a friend would do this for a freind. Fact: Barbara Kostanick is no stranger to the Internet. She has been posting on newsgroups and about charter school issues since 1997. She posts a lot on newgroups dealing with olympic skating. She was named for an ice skater. It is my OPINION: that the following posts belong to Barbara Kostanick, but I have no proof that they do, I'm just going by her writing style and the way she always puts her name on the end of her posts. She posts under a few different email addresses: ------------------------------------------ "Nothing much. I dont often speculate on who killed whom but in this case I have a gut feeling that Santa ( Bill McReyonds) was somehow involved). He had a perfect cover to come into JonBenet's room as she was expecting Santa to come that night , his wife had written a play that I believe eerily mimics in retrospect what happened that night and his alibi has no credibility if you think he did it. Perhaps it is just a reaction to the media blitz demonizing and lying about the parents." Barbara _____________________________________________________ "Crab, crab, crab! Crab when they *dont* talk to the police. Crab when they do. It sounds to me as though Kane was disappointed because he was prevented from going beyond the parameters he had already agreed to. Picky picky picky" Barbara _________________________ Posts I know belong to BK: Didn't one judge have her marked down rather tremendously -- something like 4.6? Cheers, Barb Kostanick ~~~~~ Needless to say, I wasn't surprised that they broke up -- just that it was Ina who gave him the push and not the other way around.

You are now free to research more, draw your own conclusions, or go to the swamp in about 5...4...3....2....1.... and find out how, or even IF jameson explains all of this.
