Boulder police and the DA office are on the verge of conducting sophisticated DNA tests on key evidence in the unsolved 1996 murder of 6-year-old JonBenétRamsey. Serious flaws in the previous DNA testing results on the panties and long johns that the victim was wearing during her Christmas night or morning death in 1996 can now be corrected.
The process uses sensitive "kits" in crime labs by the FBI's and Combined DNA Index System. It is a database that details genetic profiles from around 15.1 million known offenders and arrestees. Elements if more than 738,000 unsolved cases are also in that database, according to 9News.
Former District Attorney Mary Lacy who cleared the girl's family from all suspicion over her death was criticized just because of the wrong DNA test results. This is actually more upsetting than the death of Wes Gibbins in "How to Get Away with Murder" as per the article published here last month on Jobs & Hire.
It was alleged that a male DNA located in JonBenét's panties and in two spots on her long johns contained genetic material from two people aside from the victim's. As a result, the recorded profile may not be the profile of a person, but a mixture if genetic material from various individuals. Experts disputed DA Lacy's conclusions saying that those DNA can only be from the killer - that puts suspicion on the family.
DA Lacy knew about the concerns but still decided to issue the letter on July 9, 2008, clearing JonBenét's parents, John and Patsy, including her brother Burke of such suspicion in her murder. The District Attorney strongly supported the theory that an intruder killed JonBenét, based on experience.
Meanwhile, after 20 years of his daughter's murder, John Ramsey expresses his anger to police who are also implicating his son, Burke who was only nine years old at that time - but that should be over now with the promise that the new technology can be more sensitive in its finding than the old process, says CNN.
