If DNA could clear them, why hasn't it provided someone to look at as the suspect?

They always had the DNA on the panties. what they got recently was DNA on the pajamas that matched the DNA found in the panties. Doubley confirming it was not the family. Only thn would they admit they didn't do it.
I hope people realize that if you are accused of murder, get a lawyer. Had the Ramsey's not, they would be in prison for something they didn't do.No more investigating would have been done because they would have considered the case closed. They would die in prison.
I didn't know what to believe. I did not want to believe they did it. After I heard the panty DNA didn't match them, I then felt 98% sure they didn't do it. Now I know 100% they didn't do it. Thank God.

I't about time and a travesty of justice that they went through this. I never thought for a minute they had anything to do with it. The worst thing in the world happened to the Ramsey's and Patsy died with people considering her a suspect - it's just not right. Rest in peace JonBenet and Patsy. I hope the day comes they find the killer, I think it may.

Because the DNA has to be compared to other DNA. If that DNA isn't in the database you won't have a suspect.

That's the strategy. Touch DNA my foot! What's next 'eyeballing DNA' that's when you look at someone...and something strange happens and the person you are GAWKING gets contaminated? ROFLMAO.

Money has always done it's dirty job, and right now is the best time to 'extend'(the dirty hand) and take as much as as offered!

Guilty is a SOB...and money is just a 'tranquilizer'...just wait until the 'drug' wears off.....LOL

I thought that exactly. That letter was too weird.

Snow on the ground with no foot prints outside.

You can't write shlt like this.

I'm not sure who of the three did it, but I'm not buying "touch DNA" as the exonorater here.

Dover, you ignorant putz! The only money spent has been to improve the technology, and thank God for that family they have.

Can you imagine for one second how horrible that must be to be accused of killing your own child and being unable to get the police to look for the real suspect for more than a decade because they are focused solely on you.

I suppose with your limited mental capacity it would be difficult for you to imagine someone elses feelings, but you should try it.

I am still not convinced? Whose Dna was it? ALso why did it take this long to prove this?

Only GOD knows who her real killer is but I don't believe what they are saying, this man had money to provide him with enough reasonable Doubt!

The DNA samples in the CODIS database, belongs to convicted sex offenders and convicted felons, exclusively. If the killer of Jonbenet, is neither of these; there will never be any match.

I feel the killer was inside the house hiding, before the snow fell that night; therefore no snow prints. They did find a boot print inside the cellar, that is unidentified...

In fact a JonBenet internet forum poster has reasearched this matter of snow in the Ramsey case. It had snowed in previous days, but not on the night JonBenet was murdered.

This question of no foorprints in the snow is deliberate lies and misinformation by the narcotics and traffic cops of Boulder. They said there was no sign of forced entry. The Boulder cops never mentioned that Fleet and Priscilla White had a Ramsey house key

It's like that silly cow, fat cat lawyer Wendy Murphy, and her talking rot on the Nancy Grace TV show about John Ramsey's shirt fibers. The Ramsey prosecutor fat cat lawyers were lying about that matter, and Ramsey lawyer Lin Wood can prove it.

This might make your mind a bit clearer about the no footprints in the snow matter, from an old local newspaper article:

"Carnes also wrote at length criticizing media reports that reported on a lack of snowy footprints and that the window well into the basement wasn’t accessible.

“Moreover, contrary to media reports that had discredited an intruder theory, based on the lack of ‘footprints in the snow,’ there was no snow covering the sidewalks and walkways to the defendants’ home on the morning of December 26, 1996,” Carnes wrote.“Hence, a person walking along these paths would have left no footprints.”

There is something similar to your mention of "eyeball DNA", actually. The special camera takes a picture of your eye and uses your iris, as a means of identification, that is unique and unlike another person's. This is now used whenever someone is arrested. Your "iris ID" is kept in the computer database.
