National media once again converged on Boulder this week with the release of a 1999 indictment naming John and Patsy Ramsey on two charges in relation to their daughter JonBenet’s death in 1996.
In an op-ed for The Daily Camera, staff writer Charlie Brennan explained why he fought for the release of the sealed indictment. “The courts belong to the people, and transparency of the courts is a central pillar on which our system is based. There was no transparency — until today — surrounding the Ramsey grand jury’s final days and ultimate decision,” he wrote.
And, on Friday, the body of a missing Thornton teenager was found near Sixth Street and Baseline Road. Police are still investigating.
