The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey has caused controversy with its damning conclusion which paints Burke Ramsey, JonBenet's brother, as the killer of the 6-year-old beauty queen.
However News.com.au reports that a new TV special, which will air next week, has two suspects that it thinks is worth investigating.
Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey? will look into the 'Santa Claus' intruder theory and also why the Ramseys' housekeeper Linda wasn't investigated further, despite being one of the first suspects.
The 'Santa Claus' suspect is Bill McReynolds, who actually had access to the Ramseys' house, and frequently visited houses in the area dressed as Santa Claus.
McReynolds once said in an interview: “All children are special to Santa.
“She just happened to be extra special to me. She was very thoughtful, a very caring little girl and she actually gave Santa a present. You can imagine how rare that is.”
Strangely, he and his wife had a very similar crime happen to them with their own daughter - she was abducted on Boxing day 22 years before the death of JonBenet. His wife had even written a play based on the true story of a 16-year-old girl who got molested and tortured, then her body dumped in a basement.
Meanwhile, the housekeeper Linda Pugh had asked to borrow $2000 soon before JonBenet's death, and the police found the same brand of tape used to cover JonBenet's mouth in the Pughs' house.
In the new program, Fred Patterson from the Boulder police department says, “They had familiarity with the house, they knew JonBenet. It would have been possible to go to house and take JonBenet without having a disturbance.”
Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey? will air on HLN in the US next week on September 30.
