The first responder even asked john and the neighbor to look all over the house for anything unusual.

Former Boulder police chief, Mark Beckner, said that first off the police officers should have shut down the crime scene immediately and taken statements from JonBenet's parents. Since the crime occurred on Christmas Day, Beckner said that there were less people available to get to the scene. It took a long time after the murder, before police managed to conduct interviews with the Ramsey's, who had by
The facts were not at all clear to the Police Officers or the attorneys who will soon face this case. The players involved where many, but to name just a few: William M. Kunstler, a very popular and well-liked lawyer, he represented James Richardson.

In this article, “Who Killed the Jeff Davis 8”, Ethan Brown, the author, attempted to solve the murder case and prove the police authorities to being wrong and being responsible for the murders of the town. The main problem of this article is determining who is responsible for the murders of those eight women everyone’s contradicting stories. In an attempt to figure out what really happened Brown includes factual evidence from interviews and shocking statistics to inform the reader of what’s going on in the article.

This is an attempt to unravel the tangle by an objective and empirical examination of information from crime scene and post mortem examination of the victims. Pre-digested information such as speculative newspaper reports, and statements from witnesses other than those called in a professional capacity have been avoided since theirs is largely subjective testimony that confounds more than it informs.
