    Yes, that is what I suspect, that his DNA was ALL OVER the crime scene but since he was 9 years old, he was protected from prosecution. Then I ask myself, "If John and Patsy knew that, why did they go to such an extent to cover up the incident?" Maybe they didn't believe their lawyer(s)? Maybe they didn't get a chance to speak with one of the lawyers during the night? Or maybe Patsy knew that Burke would be put into protective custody at least, even if he couldn't be imprisoned. Maybe Burke's psychiatrist had warned her, or told her that Burke was on his way to being rehabilitated, and she was trying to keep him out of the system...

    I'm wondering if Burke did most of what happened that night. Except for the note, of course, and that can be explained by Patsy coming on the scene in the early morning hours. Burke's question on the phone call, "But what DID you find?" could mean he either disassociated during the crime, or that he was playing innocent and didn't know if they had actually found JonBenet's body. Plus, if Patsy undertook to write the "ransom" note while Burke went to bed, then he would have been confused - he hadn't left any ransom note. The way he reacted to JonBenet's death - as described by Kolar and documented by photographs of the funeral - is not normal. To extinguish his sister from a drawing he was asked to do only a few days after her death? Really shocking. He even discussed the means of her death which at that point, no one knew. Yet he could not be touched through the legal system.

    If Patsy and John confused Burke by telling him that JonBenet had been the victim of an attempted kidnapping, then he may have grown up believing that he did NOT kill her after all (not that he necessarily even KNEW he had finally killed her) so in his mind, he would have nothing to confess. Thus, people who think Burke should "come clean" are going to wait for a very long time.

    Good thinking, heymom! Haven't read anything like this before in anyone's posts. It's worth discussing!

    Yes it would be. DNA can last thousands of years IF undisturbed. Unfortunately, BR's DNA was, I believe, "touch DNA" which is skin cells. This means they are on the SURFACE of the fabric, and not actually blended into it, as would be the case if it were a liquid, like blood, semen, urine, saliva. The skin cells are so easily transferred that if the nightie was handled improperly, the DNA may have been lost.

    When our weather changes for the better, heymom, and one can sit in the garden - not for a few months here, that's for sure :( I will get back to reading Kolar's book.

    Oh yeah!

    I knew y'all would be chewing over this book (and my goodness, chew you did). My local library had this one and I read it in no time flat. Unbelievable!

    Must be great to be young! I have a sprained thumb at the moment and it's awkward holding a book, but the truth of the matter is I'm in a rut! Three cheers for my computer. This is where all my reading is done.

    More power to all you young yins! I'll just enjoy reading whatever y'all post relating to this case.

    Thanking all my FFJ posters for all you have contributed over the years to the JonBenét case.

    Thank you Tricia for giving us all the chance by having this terrific site. It is an honour/honor to be a member here, although many posters have vanished.

    The glass shard on the window sill is most likely the one Fleet White said he picked up and placed up there.

    When I first came here Ayeka, I was fascinated by all the different identities or "hats" as they were once called. Yours did stand out![​IMG]

    Have a nice Christmas.

    I'm having trouble finding the thread where you posted some broadcasts (?).

    Kolar spreading the word…

    JonBenet Ramsey Homicide: Lessons Learned
    The Ralston Police Department and the Police Chief’s Association of Nebraska are proud to offer this FREE TRAINING opportunity will take an inside look into the investigation of this homicide and lessons learned.
    (Training is restricted to Law Enforcement and current Prosecutors only.)
    June 25, 2014
    9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

    Chief James Kolar, a former lead investigator in the case and author of Foreign Faction - Who Really Kidnapped JonBenet, reveals startling new evidence that heretofore had only been seen by a select few. He presents an entirely new perspective for the events leading up to JonBenet's murder on Christmas day, 1996.
    The presentation is law enforcement sensitive and concluding remarks will address the issue of 'lessons learned' in hopes that mistakes made in the investigation of this case will not be
    repeated by other public safety agencies.

    I've been checking occasionally for some kind of a leak on someone's blog, or a news report somewhere, something about the "startling new evidence that heretofore had only been seen by a select few". So far -- nothing. If anyone hears anything, please pass it on. From the advert:

    "Chief James Kolar, a former lead investigator in the case and author of Foreign Faction - Who Really Kidnapped JonBenet, reveals startling new evidence that heretofore had only been seen by a select few.

    Hey, otg. It's always good to see you.

    That could be read as "heretofore" being before Kolar published his book. It also could be info he shares only with LE which he didn't put in the book, as well. I haven't heard anything, but as we all know, there are still unanswered questions about evidence, questions which in fact do have answers but the public at large has not had access to them.

    Just Team Ramsey. :kmg:
