MOSCOW, IDAHO: The gruesome murders of the four University of Idaho students last month drew some observations from the half-brother of dead child beauty queen, JonBenét Ramsey. In an interview with Fox News, Andrew Ramsey, whose six-year-old sister's 1996 unsolved murder case made national headlines, theorized that the Moscow police is ‘dealing with a violent psychopath who has no known relationship with the victim.’

According to Ramsey, “Moscow PD is in a near-impossible position. They simply don’t have the experience to run a complex homicide investigation.” However, Ramsey praised the small police force of Moscow for asking the FBI and Idaho State Police for swift assistance after the stabbings. “I will give Moscow PD tremendous credit for turning to outside agencies for help,” he added. He also recalled the situation when his sister was murdered, and how the Boulder Police Department in Colorado received criticism for several errors made during the investigation.

On December 26, 1996, JonBenét's body was discovered strangled in the basement of her house. After discovering a ransom note demanding $118,000, her parents called the police at 6 am that morning. However, the body was not found until seven hours later, when officers requested her father to check for any missing items. Boulder police then charged JonBenét's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, with fabricating the crime scene despite the district attorney's office's conviction that the evidence pointed in a different direction.

Ramsey said, “In our case, the Boulder police almost immediately told the more experienced Denver PD and FBI, ‘No thanks, we got this.’ This led to a massive error and a good reason we are still here, 26 years later, with no arrest. I pray for the families in Moscow if they don’t find themselves in a similar situation.” After 26 years have passed since the murder of JonBenét, Boulder police last month announced plans to consult with the Colorado Cold Case Review Team in 2019.
