JonBenet Ramsey Cold Case Heats up

This Christmas will mark the eighth anniversary of the death of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey in Boulder, Colorado. CBS' "48 Hours Mystery" will present some new evidence regarding the case this Saturday:

Eight years after the death of JonBenet Ramsey, her murder remains unsolved. But according to a report to be broadcast Saturday by 48 Hours Mystery, JonBenet's parents, Patsy and John, are no longer the focus of the murder investigation.

Correspondent Erin Moriarty also reports that there is new evidence that JonBenet's killer, who investigators now believe was an intruder, may have tried to kill again. Her report will be broadcast on 48 Hours Mystery, Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The other victim, investigators say, was a little girl identified as "Amy," who took dance lessons at the same school as JonBenet, and was attacked and sexually assaulted at night in her bedroom on Sept. 14, 1997.

This validates the conclusion of Lou Smit. He is the retired Colorado Springs detective who solved the murder of Karen Grammer, sister of Kelsey Grammer. He also convinced Katie Couric (Today Show Host) and millions of television viewers that Patsy Ramsey did not kill her daughter, JonBenet Ramsey. Smit believes an intruder entered the house and murdered JonBenet.

"My goal is to find the killer," Smit said from his home in Colorado Springs. "I believe that a very dangerous person is out there and more effort should be directed at catching him."

update Dec. 18, 2004:
The CBS report indicated there was key forensic evidence that one key suspect, Boulder 1997 suicide victim Michael Helgoth, may have played a role. There is also a strong possibility that there were two intruders.

CU-Boulder journalism professor Michael Tracey, who helped develop the CBS story said: "This is just one last effort to really try and solve this crime," Tracey said. "Whoever did this, and I personally believe it's more than one person, is getting away with it."
