PCP History – JonBenét Ramsey.
I was at work the other week and made some passing reference to JonBenét Ramsey to a friend who’s a few years younger than me, and she had no idea what or who I was talking about. I was completely taken aback, but then I realised that she would’ve been like five when JonBenét was murdered, and that the level of fascination I have for the JonBenét case probably significantly more than the average person, and perhaps a teensy bit unhealthy.
So before any of the basic bitches on Toddlers and Tiaras were even being preconceived, there was only one child beauty star whose name was known around the world, and that was Miss JonBenét Ramsey, and she wasn’t famous for drinking Go-Go Juice and being disgusting.
The following clips, combined with her Wikipedia page, will give a far better overview of the murder than I’m capable of writing:
Firstly, I think her whole family’s fucked. For years, I was convinced that it was her brother who’d killed her out of an insane jealous rage because their parents devoted all their time and attention to JonBenét. Also, one time in a true crime magazine I saw this picture of him holding a white cat, and the dude looked EVIL. Every stereotype in the book evil. I’ve spent the last 15 minutes exhausting Google trying to find the photo for you, but alas, it appears that the photograph never reached the internet. Ugh. Displeasure.
Furthermore, even though DNA testing proved that the family didn’t murder her, I’m not convinced that they didn’t play some part in the whole thing. Like maybe it was some kind of Man on Fire scenario, or something. I don’t even know, but the point is, there’s something not right about them.
Here’s the full text of the ransom note:
Listen carefully! We are a group of individuals that represent a small foreign faction. We
dorespect your bussiness [sic] but not the country that it serves. At this time we have your daughter in our posession [sic]. She is safe and unharmed and if you want her to see 1997, you must follow our instructions to the letter.
You will withdraw $118,000.00 from your account. $100,000 will be in $100 bills and the remaining $18,000 in $20 bills. Make sure that you bring an adequate size attache to the bank. When you get home you will put the money in a brown paper bag. I will call you between 8 and 10 am tomorrow to instruct you on delivery. The delivery will be exhausting so I advise you to be rested. If we monitor you getting the money early, we might call you early to arrange an earlier delivery of the money and hence a [sic] earlier
deliverypick-up of your daughter.
Any deviation of my instructions will result in the immediate execution of your daughter. You will also be denied her remains for proper burial. The two gentlemen watching over your daughter do notparticularly like you so I advise you not to provoke them. Speaking to anyone about your situation, such as Police, F.B.I., etc., will result in your daughter being beheaded. If we catch you talking to a stray dog, she dies. If you alert bank authorities, she dies. If the money is in any way marked or tampered with, she dies. You will be scanned for electronic devices and if any are found, she dies. You can try to deceive us but be warned that we are familiar with law enforcement countermeasures and tactics. You stand a 99% chance of killing your daughter if you try to out smart [sic] us. Follow our instructions and you stand a 100% chance of getting her back.
You and your family are under constant scrutiny as well as the authorities. Don’t try to grow a brain John. You are not the only fat cat around so don’t think that killing will be difficult. Don’t underestimate us John. Use that good southern common sense of yours. It is up to you now John!
Everything about the note is totally bizarre. Like, why leave a note if you’ve already killed her? Why are you asking for bizarre amounts of money? If it was an unknown man, why didn’t he actually kidnap her? What the fuck does S.B.T.C stand for? So many questions, and so few answers.
Who do you think is responsible for the murder of JonBenét?
