Jon Ramsey opposes release of JonBenet indictment
John Ramsey says he's opposed to the possible release of documents in an indictment related to the 1996 killing of his 6-year-old daughter JonBenet.
The Daily Camera reports that in a letter to Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett on Sunday, Ramsey's attorneys say the release of an indictment that wasn't prosecuted "only serves to further defame (John Ramsey) and his late wife Patricia." They also argue the public won't be able to evaluate the propriety of the indictment unless the entire grand jury record is unsealed.
A reporter for The Camera and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a lawsuit last month to see the records, and the DA's office has agreed to disclose anything a judge deems appropriate.
A grand jury voted in 1999 to indict the Ramseys, but the parents were never prosecuted.
