I'm not really into all that crime drama and true crime stuff. I have not watched a singled episode of either CSI:Whatever or America's Most Wanted. I don't even know what the whole Scott Peterson thing was about. But from 1996 to 1999, I lived in Boulder, Colorado. And for much of that time, the murder of JonBenet Ramsey dominated the news. You may think you got tired of hearing about it, but in Boulder we lived in it like a fish lives in water. There was no escaping it. One could become an expert on the case just by osmosis. The local paper seemed to have a whole section dedicated to the case. The US could have invaded a small nation in Asia and I would have missed it in those years.
That being said, I can't believe this guy they arrested in Thailand did it. Or at least did it alone. There is just too much evidence in the case that if the murderer was not one of the parents, it at least had to be someone very close to the family. I won't bore you with specifics: If you don't know it all by heart, you certainly don't want to hear it from me. But someone will somehow have to explain all the ransom note stuff. Someone who knew JonBenet would have an incentive to fake up the ransom note as a way to create a motive for the killing that diverted police attention away from people close to the child (who are always the police's first suspects). But why would a mysterious third party feel such a need, and how did the ransom demand exactly match the amount of Mr. Ramsey's recent bonus check? And if the Ramseys are entirely innocent, they have a lot of explaining to do about why they did absolutely everything they could to impede the investigation into the daughter's death. Already his story is breaking down. I guess the guy could conceivably be involved but in that case expect the story to be bizarre.
Update: In searching for news on this case, I found this insightful analysis of her murder based on astrology:
This opposition squares another opposition: the
opposition between the Sun and the Moon. The Sun often represents the
father in a birthchart
and the Moon the mother, and here it appears that the father was the
more nurturing parent and the mother was more dominant. Jonbenet's Moon
conjuncts the Midheaven, or cusp of the tenth house of career and
public life, showing Patsy Ramsey (Moon) was instrumental in Jonbenet's
young stage life (having herself been a beauty queen). The Sun, or the
father, is conjunct the cusp of the fourth house of the home and
Jonbenet may have been close to her father, but the square of both Mars
and Pluto to both the father and mother archetypes (Sun and Moon) shows
that there was very little safety in the relationship with either
parent. Pluto in particular, when in challenging aspect to the Sun (the
essential Spirit) and the Moon (emotional security and safety), can be
deeply frightening and there is a sense that the parents, and life
itself, are dangerous.
