I'm thinking this case will end up being a catastrophe. If it took this long to press charges, it must mean evidence is lacking or missing.

My fear is these two will get off, and I'm fairly certain my fears will be proven true!

why, from Daddy Dearest, who does real estate management for about half of Pearl Street Mall.
"Accusations of preferential treatment have also surfaced as Alex Midyette's father, Nold Midyette, is a prominent Boulder architect."
this is his company: http://www.pearlstreetmallproperties.com/
it's obvious cronyism. law enforcement in boulder is about the most useless governmental body i've ever seen.
They're only concerned with busting underage drinking because they're completely incapable of dealing with real crime. Case in point!

According to comments posted on Dailycamera.com , the father/father-in-law owns a large chunk of downtown Boulder. I wondered the same thing.

so being rich has its perks huh...just kill at will. It doesn't matter. No one cares if we kill children. It happens everyday from the unborn to the healthy. Makes me sick

From a post on another website (edited for clarity):
The father/father-in-law owns a good chunk of downtown Boulder. He probably owns a good chunk of Boulder Business Bank, in that this good-ol-boy local yocal bank--the one that finances all the
Ramsey's friends -- has undoubtedly loaned millions to the Midyette architecture firm and a variety of Midyette real estate partnerships. The president and owner of the bank is one Jack Lacey, Mary Lacey's husband. It seems likely that Lacey dragged her feet on this becasue of major financial ties between her husband and J. Nold Midyette. Why would a DA need a grand jury to hand out charges in response to a child who has clearly been beaten to death? Now Lacey can say "the grand jury made me do it," and appear as though she tried to avoid prosecuting the children of Boulder's elite.
When media began hounding John Ramsey at his Access Graphics office on Pearl Street Mall, J. Nold Midyette invited him across the pedestrian mall to work in an executive suite in the Midyette Architects building. He sent his then-teenaged son, Alex Midyette, outside to make sure nobody bothered Ramsey. For whatever it's worth, J. Nold Midyette is close to the fathers of two murdered Boulder babies. Trivial? Sure. But the whole thing seems weird.

It obviously wasn't a perk for the grandchild.

Its about time the people of Boulder get with the program and step outside their comfy bubbles and get in tune with their civic responsibilities. Yes, responsibilities. For far too long the citizens of Boulder have allowed this type of behavior from the DA's office. Its called a simple vote at the polls, and insuring you have a prosecutor with the valuse necessary to serve and protect the community as they are paid by us to do. My brothers unsolved homice in Boulder in 1983 is a classic example, still unsolved, and no one would believe the rest of that story......to add to an ever growing list of many unsolved murders since then. We can all sit and continue to be amazed at situations such as this.........chat about it in our cozy coffee houses, or the local pub........... but it is to us in the end. We allow and tolerate this behavior time after time after time. Until of course, it directly affects us, and the reality of the way things actually are come crashing in....Boulder, its all in your hands.........

Xelo,
that's why I can't understand why the grandparents wouldn't at least try to protect the baby. I thought I read in an article that they (grandparents) said that they even saw bruises. Why didn't they help ???

I wasn't there so I really don't know. I don't even know what happened to the baby, only that it's dead now. It seems fishy though.

What came into my mind was a dad who is rich and his probably connections to the underground world, so his child will get off scotch free. But his being rich never made him a good dad, so it never helped his child become a good person, leading to the death of the innocent grandchild - thus no perk for him.

I have seen personally accounts of parents that are very powerful and influental in the underworld take control of the lives of their children. One such person became the vice-president for a tv station. And only have a very hard time did he break free from the grasp of that man.

Of course I'm grasping at air right here, and this is mere speculation. I cannot be sure of anything.

But the bottom line is the statement made was true: It didn't help the innocent baby. And even if the daughter gets off, and she is guilty, she has not been helped. I wonder what she has gone through to let her baby go through this, to her perhaps life is meaningless. I could be wrong, and again I want to say this is only a thought, not a judgement.

Whatever the outcome, in the end justice will be carried out. What I have come to appreicate is, come what may, all crimes are paid for in the end.

Why is it alright to kill children in Boulder?!? Why aren't the citizens outraged?!? If it were prairie dogs in a vacant lot being killed there would be protests in the streets! Civilization is becoming more and more uncivlized everday...

Speculation is all well and good. But this is not about Boulder. This was not ivestigated by Boulder police. The case was handled by Louisville PD. It will be tried in Boulder courts. If you have not seen the Boulder Daily Camera Article, I recommend it. There is also a link to the actual indictment. The indictment is basically the facts, what the jury discovered. In reading this I was sickened beyond belief. The reason the case had to go to the grand jury was that none of those fine upstanding relatives of these dispicable monsters would talk, or tell investigators anything. The Grand Jury had the power to make them. What they did to that child in his very sad and short life was unforgivable. I hope for justice.

who else hurt that baby! Why do they always say that they wouldn't hurt the baby. And who cares who his father is, a poor little baby is dead. Mary Lacy should lose her job!!!!!
