BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett says he will not discuss evidence in the 1996 JonBenet Ramsey case unless a case is filed in open court.
Garnett made the statements in an opinion published in The Daily Camera in Boulder. It came two days after unsealed documents from the grand jury were released. The documents showed there was enough evidence to indict the 6-year-old’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, for child abuse and accessory to first-degree murder.
The district attorney at the time, Alex Hunter, decided there wasn’t enough evidence to get a conviction.
“I don’t know if I would have made the same decision, but I know how difficult these decisions are,” Garnett wrote.
JonBenet’s murder has remained unsolved for nearly 17 years.
