Exclamation JonBenet arrest made

Quote:
NBC News is reporting an arrest has finally been made in connection of JonBenet Ramsey's murder. The NBC station in Denver reports an arrest was made early this morning in Bangkok, Thailand.

A Boulder County district attorney investigator apparently traveled to thailand to get the suspect and bring him back to the United States.

The Denver station reports the suspect in Thailand confessed to the crime, and certain details only the killer could know. A press conference is expected later today.

The body of the six year old beauty queen was found in the basement of the family home on Christmas day 1996. Her parents were viewed with suspicion for years
It's about time... no?

I'd almost forgotten about the case. I'm REALLY interested in seeing what the suspect has to say.

From CNN:

CNN) -- Authorities have arrested a "possible suspect" in the decade-old JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation, law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday.

An investigator with the Boulder County, Colorado, District Attorney's office traveled to Bangkok, Thailand, and is bringing a suspect back to the United States, CNN Denver affiliate KUSA reported.

The suspect was arrested Wednesday morning and has confessed to certain elements of the crime that are unknown to the general public, KUSA reported.

The man already was already held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges, sources told The Associated Press.

Prosecutors have not confirmed the identity of the suspect, but expect to hold a press conference later today.

JonBenet's beaten and strangled body was found in the basement of the family home in Boulder, Colorado, the day after Christmas in 1996. She was 6.

A grand jury investigation into the death of the child beauty pageant winner ended without charges in 1999.

The investigation focused a spotlight on the child's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey. Patsy Ramsey died in June of ovarian cancer. She was 49.

The Ramseys said an intruder committed the crime, but they remained the subject of suspicion and speculation.

In 2003, a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit against the Ramseys, blaming the police and the FBI for bungling the investigation. The Boulder County District Attorney's Office concurred with the judge's opinion the following month, saying there was little evidence against the couple

The Ramseys left Colorado and had a house in Charlevoix, Michigan, where John Ramsey unsuccessfully ran for office in 2004, and in Atlanta, Georgia

CNN now saying it's a 2nd grade school teacher. He's 41 years old.

FoxNews says he was arrested on an unrelated sex charge and he confessed!

I thought the police were slow to do their jobs in urban areas of a city but this takes the cake. A decade? It took a decade even with good developments in forensic science. Damn. Remind me never to go Boulder, CO.

I worked two summers in Charlevoix, Michigan (as a lifeguard). Nice place, very pretty and pleasant.

Didn't know the Ramseys.

Now we know the lead story for Nancy Grace and Greta Van Susteren tonight.

Poor Patsy Ramsey, though. She didn't live to see this day.

I feel like that entire investigation eventually killed Patsy Ramsey. I'm glad they've finally knabbed the perv, but wished Patsy was alive to confront the child killer.

They try to "talk-up" Denver and Boulder, but the state of Colorado isn't best known for its "justice."

If this all pans out I publicly apologize to Patsy Ramsey for all the bad things I have said about her and calling her a murderer.

I saw a documentary about that girl's murder not so long ago and they said they thought there was a good chance they'd never know the full story. It also showed clips of comedians making tasteless jokes on TV about Patsy Ramsay not long after the girl was murdered and tabloid headlines saying the parents were the likeliest murderers etc.

If after all that it turns out to be someone else some people really should be ashamed because the girls parents had suffered enough without all the bad publicity they got as well.
