Mystery 911 call days before death

On Boxing Day, 1996, police received a strange call from a hysterical mother whose beauty queen daughter had disappeared, with a threatening ransom note left in her place.It was the beginning of the grisly JonBenet Ramsey murder case, which has gripped the world for almost two decades, and remains unsolved as the 20th anniversary approaches.But a true crime writing duo claim the crime was foreshadowed three days earlier, with another mysterious 911 call made from the luxurious Ramsey home.Police in Boulder, Colorado, received a silent call on the evening of December 23, but when they rang back, no one picked up. An officer drove to the location from which the call had been made to check if anything was wrong.A Christmas party was in full swing at the 15 room Tudor home, and the door was answered by a family friend of John and Patsy Ramsey, Susan Stine.She blamed the call on someone trying to order medicine for an ageing parent, who had not meant to use the emergency number. She would not let police in.JonBenet pictured with her mother Patricia. "Secrets kept on December 23 were repeated under far more serious circumstances three days later. This time the Ramseys knew they could rely on their friends to keep their secrets."Their friends assumed the Ramseys were innocent, and if they felt otherwise later, they were ostracised, sued or accused."Hours after Mrs Ramsey's Boxing Day call, police found 6 year old JonBenet dead in the basement of van cleef and arpels necklace imitation the family home with a homemade garotte around her neck, a blow to her head and DNA in her underwear that still hasn't been identified. The family blamed an intruder who came through the open basement window."JonBenet had quite a lot of damage to her body," said Mr Van der Leek. "Her back showed scrape marks that suggest she was lying on her back, the garotting happening after she turned on to her stomach. I don't really see it was abuse or assault, it was something else interference."Ms Wilson and Mr Van der Leek have just released the third book in their series on JonBenet's death, coinciding with other recent shock revelations from television documentaries and media investigations into the murder.A Colorado grand jury voted in 1999 to indict Mr and Mrs Ramsey, on charges that each "did unlawfully, knowingly, recklessly and feloniously permit a child to be unreasonably placed in a situation that posed a threat of injury to the child's life or health, which resulted in the death of JonBenet" and "did unlawfully, knowingly, recklessly and feloniously render assistance to a person [who had committed] murder in the first degree and child abuse resulting in death."Then District Attorney Alex Hunter's decision not to indict has long been controversial, and this weekend an explosive joint report by the Boulder Daily Camera and local news station 9NEWS found DNA evidence did not support the former prosecutor's decision to let the family off, since it indicated the imitation van cleef and arpels bracelet alhambra samples came from at least two people.John and Patsy Ramsey hold up a poster for information on who murdered their 6 year old daughter. Photo / APIn September's CBS docuseries The Case of JonBenet Ramsey, a panel of investigators alleged JonBenet's brother, 9 year old Burke, was responsible for the murder, and the children's parents John and Patsy Ramsey covered up the crime.Burke, now 29, has strongly denied harming his sister, and said in a recent Dr Phil appearance that he suspected a paedophile who stalked child beauty pageants was the killer. He denounced the CBS documentary theorising he killed his sister as a "false and unprofessional television attack" that is riddled with "lies, misrepresentations, distortions and omissions" and has now filed a US$150 million defamation lawsuit against one of the panel members, forensic pathologist Dr Werner Spitz.Ms Wilson and Mr Van der Leek allege Burke was jealous of his sister because she was beautiful, confident and shared her mother's passion for pageants. "She was like a little celebrity," says Mr Van der Leek, while her older brother was more awkward.They believe he envied JonBenet receiving a generous bicycle for Christmas, when he did not. The Ramseys have changed their story over who did and did not get a bike."There was certainly an opportunity for kids to run wild a bit," said Mr Van der Leek. "It may have started in bedroom with a pillow fight."There is very chilling evidence a child was involved in the crime," said Ms Wilson.Unusually for the status seeking family, there were no photos or phone records from that Christmas, with Mr Ramsey claiming he had lost his mobile. "If something is a first time or unusual event on the day someone is killed in their house, you have to ask why," fake van cleef arpels alhambra necklace Ms Wilson added. "The absence of evidence is often evidence."Family friend Judith Phillips has told a story about Burke injuring JonBenet with a club a year earlier, while a housekeeper said he had smeared faeces in her bed and on one of her Christmas gifts. Both have faced lawsuits.
