Plot Synopsis

JONBENET: AN AMERICAN MURDER MYSTERY is a three-night event series that sheds new light on the still-unsolved case of who killed JonBenet Ramsey. It was the crime that gripped the nation -- a bright, beaming, six-year old beauty queen is mysteriously murdered in her very own home the day after Christmas in 1996. Investigators navigated false leads, a heavily compromised crime scene and a maze of finger-pointing. Now, this series takes an unabridged and comprehensive look at the entire case around JonBenet's murder -- from top-to-bottom. As headlines and sensational breaking news chronicled the investigation's every move, America became transfixed by the child behind the pageant star, and the bizarre circumstances of her death. Featuring rarely-shared police interrogation tapes, unsealed documents and more than 500 family photos, this series is the definitive look at every angle of this tragic and controversial murder investigation. Exclusive interviewees featured include Gordon Coombes, a former investigator for the Boulder County District Attorney's office, offering unique insight into the inner-workings of the office during critical moments in the case; Diane Dimond, an investigative journalist for HARD COPY who covered the case on the ground in Boulder from the very beginning; Bobby Brown and Steve Pease, both former Colorado Springs Detectives and proteges of Lou Smit's famed Apple Dumpling Gang -- a group of retired law enforcement officials famous for solving some of the nation's toughest cold cases. Other individuals interviewed include Ollie Gray and John San Agustin, private investigators for the Ramsey family and leading voices advocating the "Intruder Theory"; Bob Whitson, former Sergeant in the Boulder Police, who was in the Ramsey house the day JonBenet's body was discovered; and Pamela Griffin, Patsy Ramsey's confidant who handmade all of JonBenet's pageant costumes. This series is produced by American Media, Inc. (AMI), the parent company to RadarOnline and The National ENQUIRER, which have closely followed every lead and every step of the case.
