Why hasn't she ever spoken out about what happened? She was/is a registered nurse and would have had educational requirments about child abuse and normal human growth and development.

And her husband, a dotor, is he as dumb as JonBenet's doctor who saw this little girl every few months with a sinus condition and stared right past the chemical exposure from Patsy bleaching her hair. Has this guy ever said a word?

Is Melinda afraid because everything points back to Patsy and her father and Burke? Thta's how it appears....

Has she ever said anything to find justice for her dead sister? NO

Pinker, please quit maligning the whole family without reason. Melinda wasn't anywhere around then, wasn't living there or anywhere near there. I think this is way over the top.

I agree, L_E. Besides being nowhere around them, Melinda was wrapped up in her own world, being engaged to a young doctor. IIRC, I thought she was in nursing school at the time and was not a "registered nurse", yet. If so, all the more reason she wouldn't have been around to see anything noticeable going on with her half-sister.

I, too, think this is way over the top.

Melinda’s inaction speaks volumes. Just as Burke and John Ramsey have no reward or interest in pursuing any investigation. There is not a single family member searching for a killer or even closure. This was JonBenet’s sister, she should be speaking up. Shame on her. She is or was a nurse and dam well knows what happened to JonBenet while she was alive was not normal…. knows there was ongoing abuse with symptoms she ignores to this day. She has a personal and professional responsibility.

She testified there was no abuse with her, and that is all she knew about, she was out of the home and couldn't have known anything. Keave her out if it, it makes you sound crazy.

Melinda Ramsey Long is a valid witness to the conflicts in this family and not above reproach. She would have credible information about her half sister’s behavior, activities, toileting skills and her stepmother’s interactions with the victim. They were not inanimate objects. Melinda and JonBenet spent hours and weeks together in Michigan.

Melinda could also have different and or expanded versions of information the Ramseys have given in interviews. Did she talk with the family on Christmas day? What was said? Was Patsy excited about the trip? Did JonBenet ever confide in her? Was she afraid of anyone?

Answers won’t appear on their own, questions have to be asked proactively. The investigation hasn’t gotten past square one in 15 years but then Melinda hasn’t been questioned anywhere in anything I’ve read. If there ever were a trial needing a Ramsey defense she would be on the stand like it or not.

Does she leave her children with Grandpa or Uncle Burke to baby-sit? I doubt it.

Pinker You need to get educated on hair coloring. First off there are no age limits that my hair dresser knew of. Secondly, Hair is DEAD! causes no pain. Hair coloring can be put on with foils and the chemicals never even touch the scalp. So quite accusing Patsy of child abuse via hair coloring. It's ridiculous.
Also MANY mothers bring their children to pediatricians frequently this day and age. They are chastised by the doctors if they don't!!! After all the doctors want those co pays! That is why we have to go there over and over for ridiulous things like medications that should really be available over the counter.

No, biz, you need a little education about hair coloring. Whether anyone agrees with Pinker's assessment of the hair bleaching of JBR and how it affected her, the FACT is that the bleach and dyes do in fact touch and seep through the scalp. Just ask anyone who has had to stop bleaching their hair due to a variety of medical reasons. Ask your doctor if you don't want to take my word for it

The chemicals do in fact touch the scalp and seep through the skin, just like any chemical. To say that they never touch the scalp is misinformation and just plain FALSE

Your hairdresser is not the final answer. I posed this challenge years ago to posters to ask their hairdressers if they would dye the hair of a child so young and NOBODY came on the forum and said their hairdresser would. In fact, only a few responded and all said, including the three I asked here in NYC, that they would NOT. Whether it is a LAW or not may vary from state to state but sometimes professionals do what "best practice" dictates even if not LAW.

Yes, many mothers do bring their children to pediatricians frequently, AS NEEDED. That does not equate to a hill of beans in this case. The FACT is that JBR was brought way more often than is considered average and considering what we now know, it is cause for suspicion, given the prior molestation and "urinary" and "vaginal" issues from the "bubble bath" that Patsy continued to use for her, despite the supposed reactions.

Once again, you are providing MISinformation for no other reason than to make the Ramseys the people you wish them to be. There is no truth in your hair bleach/dye statements, nor any truth in your assessments of Patsy's reasons for taking her to the doctor so often.

After all, they were friendly enough for the pediatrician to prescribe for Patsy and supposedly a personal enough friend to have been called over that morning, so I doubt any scolding would have come from Dr. Beuf, nor do I think Patsy was worried about that aspect

I'm looking forward, now that the holidays are over, for your sources from the "experts" that this crime was committed by a sadistic pedophile.

Of course, if you have sources that also are experts who would be willing to state that hair dyes and chemicals never touch the scalp, that would be helpful as well

Thanks Capricorn. In most states salon employees are licensed by the state as cosmetologists and have standards of service, as well they wouldn't want to jeopardize losing their license.

California had to put a law on the books to keep children out of tanning salons.

Patsy had an agenda for JonBenet like no other. If there were enough preschoolers with bleached hair and chronic sinus trouble you can be sure the AMA would get a handle on it.

BUT I'm surprised nobody else thought Melinda would be a worthy witness. I'm sure she was changing her sister and helping her clean up way past the normal landmark of development. Her husband, I can understand unless he overheard some remarks from John and Patsy... which is a great possibility with Melinda.

Something happened within that family and the only way to find the truth is talking with all family members.

It's not that Melinda or JAR wouldn't or couldn't have been worthy witnesses. I would venture to guess that Patsy was just "perfect" when they were around and would never have shown any of her negative side to them. Patsy was too well groomed for that and would never have them go home to tell their mom anything but wonderful things about herself and the family

I can't feel the same way about JAR and melinda as I do about the rest of the family. On the anniversary, not a peep out of any of them memorializing JBR, making a public statement, saying they acknowledged the day, they miss her, nothing, nothing, nothing

It seems that everyone BUT the family remembers her and the family would just like it to be forgotten. They are very content leaving this as a cold case and people can't help but wonder WHY

Just as pleasant as usual toots

You know, I've been wanting to say this for awhile. I don't believe TTH is WWO, but obviously you do. That said, it was you who started the whole thing being ugly. You gave out her name, YOU gave out how to find her. YOU did a terrible thing. Everyone hated you for that (well, most of us)

Considering that so many of us also knew your name, your wife's name, your friends' names, where you live and so much about you and not ONE of us were ugly enough to post it in retaliation, you should be a lot more grateful and at the very least stop your juvenile crap

One would think you would be a lot more humble and would stop stooping to such nasty and ugly levels. This all started because of you with the WWO. It was all your fault based on your own paranoia about accidentally using a name that just happened to be yours UNKNOWINGLY. She knows now

Because I DO know who you are, trust me when I say you are way too old to be so childish. You should be above it

Try it for the New Year. You might even like being pleasant; you never know

And...Happy New Year

Actually toots, it's good to know you don't care. Had she done it on purpose, she wouldn't have needed ME to tell her who you were, so don't be so cocky. You can and are wrong about many things, this being one of them

It was your fault. You are a very mean person

Melinda's just another underachieving kid of John Ramsey, as they ALL are. She's dependent upon whatever money he throws her way. That's what she and John Andrew are interested in, and so is Burke and wife #3, and they all will be splitting up whatever is left of Ramsey's fortune.

Obviously you and Pinker have never had your hair dyed. Sorry but you are WRONG WRONG WRONG. The color and chemicals don't touch the scalp or seep into the scalp when done by the foil method. It doesn't touch the scalp or the root of the hair if done correctly. If you wash in a color and wash it out, yes it can seep into your scalp and those with cancer or those who are pregnant are discouraged from doing coloring their hair.
I am not saying that children at a young age should get their hair dyed. I am simply saying that it isn't illegal to do so. You all just go way over board. Such drama. She was a beauty queen. They do go over the top. Yes, it is abnormal. Child abuse? I think not.
JBR loved doing the pageants according to all of those who were close to her. She was never forced into it. Don't let the nasty Toddler and Tiaras drama moms convince you that Patsy was the same cuz she wasn't.

When doing the foil method the hair dresser parts the hair, puts a folded piece of foil under it and brushes the hair color on to the DEAD hair---NOT ON TO THE SCALP. I get my hair foiled all the time and the color NEVER TOUCHES MY SCALP, never burns or hurts, etc.

I don't understand where you're getting all this. Why would Melinda be changing her sister and helping her clean up way past the normal landmark of development? Melinda lived in Atlanta; JonBenet lived in Boulder. Melinda was in nursing school. So when did she have time to do the things you claim she would have been doing?

And as for Stewart Long, he didn't become her husband till after JonBenet died. IIRC, he was still in medical school at the time. And this young couple were both in specialized training in order to establish their careers. Don't you think their studies took up most of their time? And they also were involved with EACH OTHER, doing things most engaged couples do. How would either of them have the time or the inclination to carry on from such a great distance the chores of tending to JonBenet's toileting needs or even noticing the details of their lives in the short periods of time they would have been around them?

IMO, neither Stewart nor Melinda was around John and Patsy or their family to involve themselves with what was going on with them, especially since they didn't even live in the same town. I would imagine Melinda was closer to her mother and was more involved with her mother's life than she would have been with John's. JMO

While I agree that talking with all family members should have been a priority, in Melinda's case, I doubt if she could have shed much light on the goings on in John's new family.

Melinda was a college student and had summers, weekends, and plenty of vacations free to spend in Michigan with her family. She also appears to have spent time in Boulder as her handprint was found on the door to the wine cellar. She had bedrooms in both houses. The Ramsey family had homes in two places and a plane. They were not cemented to the earth in Boulder. They also traveled to Atlanta frequently where both Melinda and Patsy’s family lived.

Melinda would have had an involvement in JonBenet’s life when they were together. The relationship was half sisters; they were not unknown unrelated human beings. Melinda would have helped JonBenet with the necessary and unnecessary things a child needs from changing her diapers to reading with her. I f you search you’ll find a picture of them making cookies together. Melinda would have been a natural built in babysitter as most older siblings are. Melinda Ramsey would have been, and is a good candidate to learn about JonBenet’s behavior, her toileting skills and her relationship with Patsy. What did Melinda know about the bleached hair? Again, the investigation has not been fruitful for 15 years but Melinda hasn’t been asked many questions.

John Ramsey is said to have phoned his older children every day. They would not be talking about kitchen curtains; they would have been intimate conversations about their own lives and the people in them. We’ve never heard what was said in the Christmas day or Christmas Eve calls. Was Patsy excited about the trip to Michigan? Did Melinda talk to Patsy or the kids? Did JonBenet ever confide in her?

Melinda Ramsey’s Long inactivity and disregard for looking for justice speaks volumes especially when you consider her chosen profession.
