The link between Burke and the feces smeared candy box was his jammy bottoms with a fresh load of shite inches away. And there is an obvious reason for the topic of SBP. Many boys with the type of voluntary encopresis Burke exhibited have been victims of sexual abuse. Kolar is spot on. It's beyond possible Burke and Jonbenet were sexually abused by the same monster, repeatedly and to the point they were in therapy.
There aren't many suspects as to who had ready access and who the kids should have trusted.
It appears that Kolar doesn't know that the pajama bottoms were Burke's. They were "thought to belong to Burke" because they were "too big to belong to JonBenet." They weren't collected it seems. I don't know where you get "fresh load" from. That's not in the book.

How would you know what was said about Burke when you never bothered to read Kolar's book? Kolar doesn't have to defend himself against any WILLFULLY IGNORANT posters that don't want to know the truth he put in his book.
Burke's records were never turned over to law enforcement, so we don't know what is in them. He also testified before the grand jury. The Chief can't use any of that material in his book. Burke of course HAS REFUSED to cooperate and be re-interviewed JUST LIKE JOHN with the 2009 reactivaion investigation into the murder of his own sister.
I own the book, numbnuts.

Chances are Kolar is just more knowledgeable about sexual abuse in children than you. Since you’ll be too afraid to click on the link here are highlights in relation to the Burke situation.

http://www.cyc-net.org/cyc-online/cycol-0801-...

“Typical behaviours of these children may include (but are not limited to) oral copulation, vaginal intercourse, anal intercourse and/or forcibly penetrating vagina or anus of another child with fingers, sticks and/or other objects.”

“Most child perpetrators who have been studied have been victims of sexual abuse themselves, although the sexual abuse generally has occurred years before the children began molesting other children. All of the girl perpetrators (females represent about 25% of child perpetrators) and about 60% to 70% of the boy perpetrators have been molested. All of the children live in home environments marked by sexual stimulation and lack of boundaries, and almost all of the children have witnessed extreme physical violence between their primary caretakers. Most parents of Group IV children also have sexual abuse in their family histories, as well as physical and substance abuse.”

“Signals for Parents and Counsellors

The child manifests a number of disturbing toileting behaviours: plays with, smears faeces, urinates outside of the bathroom, uses excessive amounts of toilet paper, stuffs toilet bowls to overflow, sniffs or steals underwear.”

Burke’s medical and psychological records were not available to the investigation and had an ‘island of privacy’ for a specific reason.

You don’t think Jonbenet being violated with a paintbrush relates?

“and/or forcibly penetrating vagina or anus of another child with fingers, sticks and/or other objects”

You don’t think finding Burke’s pajama bottoms with a turd and the box of candy with feces smeared on it relates?

“disturbing toileting behaviours: plays with, smears faeces”

And what a surprise - no wonder they can’t figure out who originally owned the panties…

“steals underwear”

You’re way off base to think the sexual abuse of children is limited to pedophiles from outside the family, that’s the least likely scenario.

I think Burke was sexually exploited by JAR but you are free to think it was Patsy or John. Chances are John and Patsy were well aware of the situation. The cover-up and staging was to protect both sons.

There is little information about Jonbenet’s half brother available. John Andrew Ramsey was 20 at the time of Jonbenet’s death. His parents divorced before he went through puberty. Burke was born when he was about 10 and Jonebent when he was 13. His mother remarried and gave him a stepfather of unknown character or quality. His eldest sister died in a car accident when he was about 15. The quirkiest tidbit is his maternal grandmother, Lucinda’s mom Irene married his paternal grandfather; James, John’s dad.

Quite a foundation for family discord.

Just because he was cleared of anything to do with the exact events of 12/25 does not absolve him of actions related to the dysfunction in that hellhole.

Shortly after Jonbenet's death Burke was asked to draw a picture of his family and there was no hint Jonbenet ever existed, or there was another brother.

He drew his father off to the side, his mother smallest and no JonBenet. He did not include JAR or Melinda.

Actually, if Thomas, Kolar, and associates knew what they were doing, they would not have made the surviving victims of the crime--namely, John and Patsy--their primary suspects; and instead would have thrown the full weight of their, albeit, limited ability into seeking out the identities of the intruders who committed this most heinous offense.
Instead, sixteen years later and all these knuckleheads have yielded is the irritating attempt to sell us books explaining away their incompetency.
WORD TO THOMAS AND KOLAR:
Any pack of mangy dogs, scavenging the streets of Boulder, could have failed to solve this crime just as easily as you have. But at least the dogs would have had the decency not to write books about it.

This article from an author, explains the real dollars and cents reasons why authors like self publishing, and self publishing factors in Kolar and Wendy Murphy's books: http://www.salon.com/2013/04/04/hugh_howey_se...

As far as an impact in a high profile case, this is not the way to go, but Steve Thomas made sure in his pathetic deal with the Ramseys it is the ONLY avenue open to those on the RDI side even to this day, the only RDI major voices have been self published since his deal with the Ramseys. His deal was a huge watershed in this case for censorship on a mass scale of information about the case.

Today is the first day that this wonderful book is finally available in e-book format, on Kindle. I think I was the first customer, buying the book for a friend in the only format they read books anymore. A lot of people are like this, and I hope many, many more people buy this must read book on this case.

I aree with Mr. Kolar. I believe Burke could be the person who is responsble for Jonbenet's death. Probably in a fit of jealous rage. Possibly, there was ongoing "experimentation" sexually with his sister. I am even open to the belief that Patsy and John were not sure it was Burke, but had a sinking, sickening intuition from past displays of anger by Burke toward Jonbenet, that their son could have been the culprit.

I think John unlatched the basement window so there would be an obvious point of entry to prove an intruder. Knowing his fingerprints would be detected, he claimed he latched it.

Everytime I try to come up with a bonefide kidnapping gone wrong, I keep coming back to the ransom note. It had to be someone who knew them well. And I can hear Patsy telling John during an argument to not to try to grow a brain. She may refer to others in their circle as "fat cats". And she would tell him to use the good ole southern common sense of his. Burke would be privileged to all these little nuances of his mom and dad's everyday bantering. My daughter, who has seen plenty of movies, could have written this ransom note at nine almost ten years of age. It sounds so childish but in a pseudo adult fashion. Most people do not use the word "hence", but Burke would have heard his mother use it often.

After reading about the unsophisticated nature of the knots used on the hands and on the garrote, after seeing how much taller Burke was than Jonbenet, and after reading his interviews where he showed no interest in the death of his sister, and after reading about sexually aggressive children, I do feel Burke could have pulled this off without any assistance from his parents. They may have recognized his writing, and knew what was going on but did not want to admit it to themselves. That is why John searched the basement the first trip around. He found the body at that point and knew it was "an inside job" as he had commented to the police.

And why had he felt it important to observe while carrying her into the room that he didn't think the person meant to kill her (Jonbenet) because he had her wrapped in a blanket. At that point, why would he even care whether or not the perp meant to kill his daughter? It did not change the fact that she was dead. What comfort would he derive from that thought, unless he felt Burke had committed the murder?

A victory is shallow if the person you triumphed over is not aware of your identity. If that was the intention of the ransom note, then this perp would have come forward with subsequent acts in order to surrepticiously make his identity known to John.

And why did the unsub pinpoint Jonbenet? Why not Burke? Aren't sons supposed to be special to fathers?

A huge date of significance has passed, the one year anniversary of Kolar's publication of "Foreign Faction" on this case. According to Amazon, the publication date was in June, 2012, therefore, Kolar will NOT be sued by the Ramseys over this book. USUALLY that would be a hugely significant FACT. But in this case, that is not the case. Thanks to either the news being pimped out so long in advance that the Ramseys not only figured out what was coming, they had their own rebuttal book ready to go at the same time, OR the media being TOO AFRAID, after Steve Thomas's gutless SETTLEMENT and Lacy's clearing of the Ramseys to give Kolar's book any NATIONAL coverage at all. That was the key to thwarting the impact of Kolar's book, and making sure it never sold. Steve Thomas was on Good Morning America for three or four days in a row promoting his book, as well as on Larry King Live, debating the Ramseys Rivera Live, Peter Boyles, Fox News. Kolar was given no media exposure and that's all the Ramseys cared about. They were about to make sure the impact of the book was minimal, and they would not at this point want to call attention to a book most people have not heard about. Since Steve Thomas settled, there have not been any TV shows, shown on the mass media, about the RDI theory. That whole theory disappeared from the airwaves thanks to him. There have been all kinds of intruder shows, like Discovery ID's Aphrodite Jones shows, that have had huge viewership on television and on line. Kolar's book did not change this situation at all. It is a fine, brave book, but the Ramseys were able to make sure almost no one except on line even heard of the book, thus the impact of the book was minimal.

Kolar is responsible for no one hearing about Kolar's book. It is poorly written, his judgement is suspect and he clearly was baffled by the case.

Some interesting points Candy. James Kolar wrote a terrific book that helped a lot people understand the case. In addition to the some of the reasons that you cited, his book did not receive much publicity because he refused to actively promote it and performed teribly in interviews about the book.

Hi Steve,

I agree with what you have said regarding the book. The book was a terrific piece with information not previously known to the public.

Unfortunately, not everyone is proficient at being a "celebrity" of sorts if you will and have better informative and writing skills than TV or Media skills. Kolar is one of those people. It's really such a shame but the fact remains that but not for his book, there is so much information we would never have had.

One of the things that strikes out at me was the theory of the railroad tracks that would/could be responsible for the marks on JBR.

I for one, appreciated the book for the information and it is truly sad that the media appearances weren't more animated

You have a good post up until you start criticizing his interviews. Maybe that isn't his strong suit! It certainly doesn't take away from the fact that the book was terrific and it helped a lot of people fill in the blanks so to speak.
