Newly discovered DNA evidence in the Jon Benet Ramsey murder case does not match Ramsey family members nor any possible suspects in the nation’s law enforcement DNA data base.
The DNA matches prior results taken from the child’s panties in 1997. The new DNA is consistent with that of male genetics.
Using new forensic testing, The Boulder Colorado District Attorney’s office has released a letter officially clearing the Ramseys – including John, the late Patsy and all immediate family members.
“We intend in the future to treat you as the victims of this crime, with the sympathy due you because of the horrific loss you suffered," the letter read in part.
The DNA testing was the results of a new procedure that did not exist in 1996 when the six year-old beauty pageant winner was found murdered in the basement of the Ramsey home in Colorado.
"There is now one step left in finding the killer of the little girl," a source close to the investigation said.
"And that’s to match the DNA to the right person."
