Ok I’m literally parked one block away from JonBenet’s house as I read this. As a native of the area, and a student at the University in Boulder at the time that this happened (and still live nearby), this story has never been far from my mind.

My own personal opinion is that their son Burke was much more involved. I read the book you linked a few months back written by one of the investigators on the case - wow!

Ok I’m in. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️Only because you’re breaking it down for us and it sounds like there will be some measure of resolve at the end! I’ve otherwise always distanced myself from this case because of the hype coupled with lack of resolution for sooo so long. So frustrating.

As the mother of a child that did pageants at the same time as JonBenet I have always followed this case . Unlike popular opinion would have one believe many ( Not ALL ) children turn out just fine after doing pageants . It is not indicative of ANYTHING but liking to do pageants . My daughter gained confidence and many lifelong friends . She is now a mother herself AND a professional with an eight year degree AND a happy adult . I am sorry for what happened to JonBenet ...so tragic .

Cannot wait for this. I was a teenager when it happened and it absolutely was a case I've never been able to forget, and probably the case that got a lot of women now in their 40's interested in true crime. I have long believed her brother to be the killer, with Patsy his enabler/accessory after the fact. I'm not sure if John ever knew the truth, or just did and said as he was told. But I'm definitely open to other theories, and absolutely open to hearing the truth.

I spent Valentines Day 2005 inside the Ramsey home, and I can confirm that it has a very eerie vibe. Everything about it - from the walk in refrigerator in the chefs kitchen to the basement and the 2 upstairs wings (Master Bedroom in one wing and children’s bedrooms in the other) - was strange. Very excited for this deep dive into the case!

Can’t wait for this exclusive unpacking. And what a wonderful (&captivating!) way to introduce the series and share what’s to come. It is a heavy case, so keep up on your good self care, there’s a coronation a-coming! 🫶🤍

Jessica! I have been waiting for your deep dive on this! So invested in this case and I have always thought there were so many inconsistencies. That ransom letter was incredibly odd. The weird friends that were there before and after, how they went downstairs and “found” her body after the investigator was going to search the whole house. What is your ideal time frame to break it all down?? Can’t wait.

This story is so tragic! Being Jonbenet's age when this happened as well as being a native of Denver it always hits so close to home and still as eerie as the day it happened. Jessica, I'm curious if your source or anyone you talked to mention the Dad and a few other men being Satanists and this was a ritual gone wrong. As crazy as that sounds there's crazy theories behind it and one Judge in the area who was privy to the case had tons of inside info that he shared before he passed and the info he shared kind of corroborated this theory that no one wants to talk about . It reminded me if your research into the whole Eyes Wide Shut article!!!. There's this Youtube video from a journalist who is heavily shadow banned but interesting. I'm curious if anyone has heard similar things??

I was a teen when this happened. I’ve always tried to keep up but there are so many rabbit holes it eventually got lost on me. Can’t wait to look at it again with a new perspective!

I think what freaked me out was that I felt so strongly that the mother knew what happened but she was covering either for her husband or son. And it really disgusted me. Then at another point I thought maybe she did it!

Oh my gosh either way I just can’t believe when members of families cover for each other for a murder! I would never, I would throw my brothers / etc in jail in a minute.

This is the one that’s going to tilt me to subscribing! I’ve been dragging my feet but I always enjoy your information!

I'll be following this. I remember seeing the magazines with JonBenet at the grocery store as a kid. I always wonder why they couldn't solve the case.

I read Foreign Faction too, thank you Jessica! I remember when it all happened and followed it a bit, but then thought WTH is going on with the investigation? I had never seen a little girl so made up before - too young to be made up, I thought, and it still goes on. I find that just... unnecessary, and creepy, and messed up... thank you for bringing it up, because I am eager to see where this goes!!
