Twenty-two years ago the body of child beauty pageant star JonBenet Ramsey was discovered in her family's home in Boulder, Colo. Now an investigator is hoping to solve the case by revisiting it in a new documentary.
Hosting the new series that the documentary will be part of is Elizabeth Vargas, lead investigator for A&E Networks, who is using the docuseries as a means of exploring various events that impact the country, Fox News noted. The first episode of "The Untold Story," which airs Thursday, is centered on the murder of JonBenet.
The young beauty queen was found brutally murdered in the basement of her parents' home on Dec. 26, 1996. According to The Los Angeles Times, her mother, Patsy Ramsey, reported her daughter missing that morning after recovering a ransom note that demanded $118,000 in cash. Later that day JonBenet's body was discovered by her father, John Ramsey. At the time it was reported she had been struck on the head and strangled. There were signs of sexual assault.
In the premiere of "The Untold Story," which features an interview with JonBenet's father, retired assistant special agent Robert Clark offers possible explanations of what may have transpired that fateful day. Speaking to Fox News, Clark said he hoped that the show would reach someone who has knowledge that could help put the case to rest.
"Maybe someone will remember something," said Clark. "This has happened on multiple occasions. Mr. John Walsh has built a tremendous career in highlighting cases on television and then the next thing you know someone’s calling. … I’m hoping anything from this show will help someone remember something and then call the Boulder Police Department..."
Clark noted that the JonBenet Ramsey case remained an active investigation which could benefit from the help of the public.
"Someone who calls in with information can help us solve this case and finally put JonBenet to rest," he said.
