Hi HOS. How are you? Yes, Charlie Brenner supplied Schiller with much of the information for PMPT and I don't know how accurate his information was. There's also the question of "Melinda's" partial palm print on the wine cellar door which is open to dispute and which is rumoured to have come from Brenner.Hi Lynette: thanks for opening my eyes, to so much myth in the stories that the great cops of boulder told & are still telling, oh by the way Lynette, remember brenner & Schiller sat side by side, an wrote Schillers book. Two peas in same pod, like Moon Jack said, go figure, it's the source MJ was speaking of I bet. I would even bet MJ thought Brenner was like Tom Watson, he was a bullshit lying journalist also. It's these type of lies that dogs feed on and get someone hung.
From the Wolf vs Ramsey civil ruling:
"In addition, on the wine-cellar door, there is a palmprint that does not match either of defendants' palmprints.(SMF P 156; PSMF P 156.) The individual to whom it belongs had not yet been identified.(SMF P 156; PSMF P 156.)" (Carnes 2003:19-20).
But a newspaper account claims:A palm print on the door leading to that same wine cellar, long unidentified, is that of Melinda Ramsey, JonBenet's adult half-sister. She was in Georgia at the time of the murder. L. Lin Wood, the attorney representing the Ramseys, who now live in Atlanta, doesn't debate the palm print findings (Quotations and source provided by Internet poster Tricia.
Internet poster Mame asserts: "the story suggesting the handprint is confirmed to be Melinda's is just that....a story. If I recall the report came via a reporter, Charlie Brennan. Remember his footprints in the snow story??? A totally false story."
Trip DeMuth didn't seem to think it was Melinda's palm print. From a 2006 interview with Anderson Cooper in reference to JMK:
COOPER: What about the palm print, how big is it? How crucial is it?
DEMUTH: You know, obviously if they've compared the palm print to him
and it's a match, then it places him not only in Boulder County at the
time of the murder, but it places him inside of that house in close
proximity to where the girl was found on the day of the murder, and
that's very compelling evidence. "
Later he says:
"So the only thing that I haven't heard about that they possibly have
is the palm print. And the fact of the matter is, I hope they've got
"But at the same time, if they have a palm print comparison to this
guy, then my blood pressure goes down and I feel a lot better about
the case. "
And even more recently this story in the rocky Mountain News from July 10, 2008:
"unidentified shoe and palm prints inside the home; a broken basement window and a disturbed window well, with material from that window well found in the room where her body was discovered; unidentified hair and fiber on the child, her clothing and the blanket covering her."
Who to believe? Personally my money's on the judge. You?
