Grand jury voted to indict JonBenet’s parents in 1999

BOULDER, Colo. – A grand jury reportedly voted to indict JonBenet Ramsey’s parents back in 1999, but the prosecutor wouldn’t sign the indictment.

The Daily Camera reported Sunday that multiple sources, including some members from the grand jury, confirmed that former Boulder District Attorney Alex Hunter refused to sign the indictment because he believed that “he could not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The grand jury voted to indict John and Patsy Ramsey on charges of child abuse resulting in the death of their daughter, according to the paper.

The 6-year-old beauty queen was found dead in the basement of her parents’ Boulder home on Christmas night in 1996.

The Ramsey’s, and their son Burke, were all cleared in the case in 2008 by District Attorney Mary Lacy based on DNA analysis.
