I was in court or client meetings from 8:30 - 5:00 yesterday, so I totally missed this news until I got home, but I'm sure everyone else knows by now that a suspect has been arrested and charged with the murder of JonBenet Ramsey
. Wow. It was interesting last night watching all the various media personalities and forensic and legal talking heads backtracking on their years-long demonization of the Ramseys. I saw Cyril Wecht, famous/infamous forensic pathologist, this morning still "extremely skeptical" about the man's guilt. I'm sure the fact that he wrote a book all but indicting the Ramseys for accidentally killing JonBenet in the midst of a twisted sex game has nothing to do with his skepticism. I was also struck by the quote from John Ramsey, where he refused to engage in media speculation about the man's guilt, but wanted to allow the justice system to run its course. How odd it must be for him to now watch the media declaring this new suspect's guilt when they did the same thing to him so many years ago. No one who brutally murders a young child the way JonBenet was brutalized should get away with it, and so, I truly hope that the prosecutors and police have finally gotten their man.
