DNA to be re-examined in the JonBenet Ramsey case

Could the mystery finally be solved?

Authorities have confirmed they will look into re-examining DNA in the murder case of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey.

The decision comes after a joint investigation by US media outlets, The Daily Camera and 9News which casts serious doubt over the reliability of testing done on the little girl’s clothes after she was found strangled in her family’s Boulder, USA, home in 1996.

They obtained exclusive access to information about the testing conducted in 2008, concluding that DNA evidence in the case doesn’t support the District Attorney’s decision to clear JonBenet’s family members of any involvement in her death.

Now authorities have confirmed they will seek to have the DNA re-examined using new technology not available at the time.

‘We did meet with CBI and the district attorney’s office, and we had a general discussion about evidence in the Ramsey case, including new technology and DNA testing,’ Boulder police chief, Greg Testa, said.

‘And we are going to take a look at the new technology, and see how they may help us further this investigation.’
