This is some background information to Randy Simons, from the ACandyRose website:

October 16, 1998
Charged with indecent exposure

"Randy Simons was a free-lance photographer who was hired to take the glamor photos of JonBenet Ramsey in June 1996 for her portfolio. Simons sold the portfolio of JonBenet photos to the New York-based agency named Sygma Photo Agency for $7,500 in January 1997.

On October 16, 1998, Simons was caught walking naked down the streets of his hometown of Genoa, Colorado nude. He had recently turned 46 years old at the time. Media reports state when the Lincoln County deputy approached Simons he volunteered, unsolicited, "I didn't kill JonBenet."

Simons was held at the Lincoln County Jail for a psychiatric evaluation then treated at University Hospital. Simons was not charged and was allowed to return home."

More background information about Randy Simons from the internet. I think this is something to do with Boulder activists Dr McFarland and Ravitz:

9/20/99 Letter to Kane"Posted by jameson on Oct-21-99 at 09:20 AM (EST)

September 20, 1999

"Dear Mr. Kane, I wish to talk with the grand jury about the subject of the book Presumed Guilty by Stephen Singular: various ways child pornography and/or abuse could have been the original motive(s) for what became JonBenet's murder. One obvious possible connection with child porn is through JonBenet's pageant life. Pam Griffin, JonBenet's costume maker, says in the book (p.110) "One time Randy [Simons] wanted to shoot Kristine [Pam's daughter] nude, but I said absolutely not." There are other possible connections between the Ramseys and the child porn/sex world that should be investigated. Keeping a lid on this ultimate taboo could mean death for a headstrong child like JonBenet who couldn't otherwise be silenced.

Child porn and abuse are deeply ingrained into Boulder society. Some evidence is:"

This is an old newspaper article about Randy Simons:

"Man found walking nude told deputy,'I didn't kill JonBenet'

By Charlie Brennan
Rocky Mountain News Staff Writer

A professional photographer arrested Friday for allegedly walking naked through rural Genoa blurted out to a sheriff's deputy that he was innocent in the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.

Lincoln County Sheriff Leroy Yowell said Randy Simons, 46, was arrested at about 3:30 p.m. Friday for walking along a residential street in Genoa -- an eastern Plains town, population 200 -- with no clothes on.

Simons told the arresting deputy "I didn't kill JonBenet."

"That was the first thing he said when my deputy walked up to him," said Yowell.

Yowell said that his deputy had said nothing to Simons that would have likely elicited such a remark from the photographer.

Several hours after he was taken into custody, Simons told a Lincoln County deputy that he has been questioned in the slaying of the JonBenet, the 6-year-old child beauty queen found murdered in her parents' basement Dec. 26, 1996.

Simons, 46, is a veteran of the child pageant circuit, and had taken some of what are now the best known pictures of JonBenet.

Yowell said Simons was transferred late Friday to Denver's University Hospital for a mental health evaluation. The sheriff said there are no charges pending against Simons.

No dna match is all I can think of. The dna IS the casebreaker here. The only thing that will catch this killer.

I agree with Yacky that it's most unlikely that the Ramsey case DNA belongs to Randy Simons.

I have never said that I thought Randy Simons murdered JonBenet. I agree with the Ramsey case author Stephen Singular that Randy Simons might have knowledge in relation to the crime. I think Randy Simons was there at some kind of a child sex party as a videographer, or photographer, when JonBenet was murdered.

Stephen Singular seems to think along similar lines to me about all this. I don't agree with Singular that if Fleet White did it then John Ramsey 'must' have been involved as well. There isn't a particle of evidence to back up that theory without facts.

This is what Stephen Singular said in an interview about Randy Simons, I think in 2004. It makes sense to me:

Q: "You were responsible for focusing Alex Hunter and his team on another suspect weren't you?

Yes, I told Hunter that a photographer (Randy Simons) who'd taken JonBenet's picture and who, according to some pageant moms in the Denver-Boulder area, had asked if he could photograph their girls nude or semi-nude, had freaked out following the murder and had acted very suspiciously ever since. I was not suggesting that Simons participated in the death of JonBenet but that he might well have knowledge of the kinds of activities and subculture I was telling Hunter about. At the time I told the DA this, he'd never heard of Simons, which indicates just how much the Boulder police resisted investigating the murder outside of the family and how little they knew about the world JonBenet had been exposed to through her
pageant connections.

Q: What was the result of those investigations?

The police never truly investigated Simons or anyone else who raised the possibility of a different scenario for this homicide. They were, to use Hunter's word, "fixated" on the Ramseys and still are.

Q: So when police chief Mark Beckner told the press that his detectives had "intensively investigated" numerous other suspects, apart from the Ramseys, he wasn't telling the truth?

He was telling the truth as he saw it. They did devote a little time to this or that person but never with any conviction or genuine curiosity. From firsthand observations of the police behavior in this case, I can tell you that they have not deeply investigated a number of credible leads. They haven't acted this way out of malice, but because they hold only one view of the case. The murder can't be solved, I believe, because that view doesn't fit the evidence."

Has anyone noticed,many of the suspects are nuts,well the one's that's still alive that is.I find it surprising that many of the witness type and possible killers are totally nut cases.
This could be a clue to how bad the cops missed this one.most people thought the well educated Ramsey's were killers,and never even gave it a thought that we had killers running around JB who were nuts and sex crazy over children.
This is a case that was covered up from the start,along with all the nuts running around town,we also had some powerful and rich people playing this game of see what we can get away with in regard to children and sex with them.
But they hit a big bump in the road with JB,they never dreamed it would come to all of this,but with luck on their side, so far so good.

Yacky, I have a question for you... If the DNA was deposited about the same time as JonBenets', how could JonBenets DNA have all 13 identifiable markers and alleged perps only have 9? How is that possible?

yeah, lots of nuts. Has anyone noticed that all these nuts were associates of the Ramsey's? What are the odds such well educated people would surround themselve's and their children with so many nuts?

I think we have several nuts on this forum,who have been wondering through the desert for years searching for the answers that have been right in front of their face.but they chose to believe the Boulder police,which never had a clue from the start.

One of the major Problems I see in this case is everyone that might know something is brushed off as a nut,that is one of the many things that is dragging out this case.
I just hope the DA's office is paying attention and goes after the right people this time around.

LOL five days ago you said people on this forum that believe the BPD are "nuts". Now you're saying people "that might know something" are "brushed off as a nut".
I just hope you're paying attention to all your contradictory posts, they're hysterical:D

If you have ever noticed I'm a little bit like you,Cap,PF and others in your little group,I repeat and sometimes forget what I've said,but I couldn't touch any of you,you are the best at it.
Bottom line-we know we have some crazy people involved in this case.I think we might even have some on this forum.
I'm just glad you can still laugh,it's good for the soul.

Calling Randy Simons!

It would be so easy to get cleared by so many. Submit DNA to the right people and if it is no match -- have the report released and -- wewould surely drop your name from the discussion.

Still sloshing around in the mud I see. Don't you and Tracey ever get tired of trying to destroy other people's lives. First it was Gicax and then FW and now Simons.
