A former Ramsey housekeeper viewed this photo and replied, "There is definitely something wrong here. Something has been changed. It's not like I remember it."This is the only photo I know of of the spiral staircase: http://www.jameson245.com/hall.jpg
This decoration is similar to the one in a 1994 video, but it has been "toned down."
However, there is even more evidence that suggests that there where no lights on the spiral stairs when the police arived.
No police report seems to list any lights on the spiral stairs.
Steve Thomas displayed an assumption that there were no lights on that spiral staircase.
Garland was found in JonBenet's hair during the autopsy. Linda Arndt thought it may be garland from the spiral stairs. The police collected the garland from the home, but no lights are listed on any of the evidence reports.
Lawrence Schiller described the decoration on the spiral staircase in his book, and he listed "Garland" and "ribbons," but fails to mention any Christmas lights.
During Patsy's police interviews, she is asked about the lighting on the staircase. She continues to repeat that the staircase was "dimly lit," but never mentions the Christmas lights. When asked directly, "What type of lighting was on the spiral staircase," Patsy replied that she could not remember.
Multiple opportunities for someone to mention the Christmas lights on the spiral stairs, and no one does, not even Patsy when she was asked about it.
Now add to this a child with a cracked skull, garland in her hair, and mysterious marks on her body that some claim could be electrical burns.
