True Crime and Conspiracy Theories: JonBenét Ramsey

Note: When summarizing the case, I’m only going to add a paragraph or two. I don’t feel comfortable going into too many details when people have worked hard writing articles about these. I’ll give my brief summary and link or links to the articles I got the information from so that anybody can go back and read up on it themselves.

This Week’s Topic: JonBenét Ramsey

On December 1996, six-year-old JonBenét Ramsey was discovered to be missing.Her mother woke up and discovered a two-page ransom note. Her body was discovered seven hours after the search had started. Her body was found in the basement of her family home. Her death has ultimately ruled a homicide. There are many unanswered questions about the case itself. This case remains unsolved to this day.

JonBenét Ramsey was a beauty queen. She had a beauty and charm that captivated many. Her mother was a beauty queen too when she was younger. Her family has all been considered as suspects many times through the investigation. They have all been cleared. Her mother passed away in 2006.


My Thoughts:

I was ten years old when this broke out all over the news. I can’t explain to you how I felt. Looking back, I think this is probably the point where me being an Empath was obvious. It also is the reason I follow certain cases so closely to this day. I also still have a hard time seeing anything fiction or nonfiction about children’s deaths.

For years after the case broke out on the news, I tuned in on every single development that was released. I hoped and I prayed that they would find answers. I was so worried about how obsessed I’d become with the case, I never really told anybody.

Eventually, I had to stop reading anything involving it. They started reaching for impossible things. I felt like it became more about how dramatic the story could be than actually discovering the truth of what happened. I never gave up hope that this case would be solved. I still haven’t. I hope that this case will be solved in my lifetime. I’m not confident it will, but anything is possible.
