JonBenét Ramsey police have urged re-testing of DNA on three key pieces of evidence, including her underwear, a huge update has revealed

THREE key pieces of evidence in the JonBenét Ramsey case need to be retested using modern technology, according to a team of volunteer investigators and a detective’s daughter.

This includes the six-year-old beauty queen’s long johns, panties and under her fingernails, the group pointed out.

Cindy Smit-Marra, daughter of the late detective Lou Smit, is on a mission with detective John Anderson to solve the Cold Case.

The two are part of a team of about 12 who continued the work of the late Lou Smit.

The renowned detective introduced the “intruder theory” that rocked the JonBenét case by showing the six-year-old’s parents were innocent.

Prior to Smit’s involvement, the Boulder, Colorado police and court of public opinion believed that John and Patsy were involved in JonBenet’s 1996 Christmas murder.

Smit died before finding a suspect, but left a wealth of information the team didn’t want to waste

“The Ramseys didn’t do it, and this case can be solved using the DNA evidence left at the scene by the killer,” they said.

Smit-Marra and Anderson said JonBenét’s long johns, panties and under the fingernails would need to be retested “under the specific format required for forensic genealogical research”.

“We are requesting that the lab that performed the testing on the long johns use its current technology to potentially identify more markers and/or separate mixed DNA,” they said.

“That would simply require a call from the Boulder Police Department.”

Or they want the Boulder Police Department to call in a private lab like Parabon or Othram.

The team has used its own money — and money raised through its GoFundMe — to test DNA and delist potential suspects’ names.

Smit-Mara and Anderson said they also want Boulder Police to “coordinate with experts who can re-evaluate any physical evidence in this case to determine if that evidence leads to further identification and/or confirmation of DNA.” be able”.

This is part of JonBenét’s family’s call for the governor to take Boulder PD’s case and bring in an outside agency.

Last week Gov. Jared Polis told The Sun in an email that no decision had been made despite an online petition with more than 20,000 signatures supporting the Ramsey family’s wish.

“Newly found DNA markers could then be tested in the format required for forensic genealogy,” said Smit-Mara and Anderson.

“Then hire an expert to conduct a ‘family’ DNA search for relatives of the killer in CODIS using the killer’s DNA profile currently in CODIS.”

They said their relationship with the Boulder Police Department was “disappointing.”

WHAT YOU WANT FROM BOULDER PD

“Our team met twice with Boulder Police Detectives and the Boulder District Attorney to share our work and the results of our independent DNA analysis,” said Smit-Marra and Anderson.

“Unfortunately, our most recent request to meet was denied when I confirmed that the purpose of our meeting is related to Lou Smit’s Intruder Theory, which eliminates the Ramsey family and focuses on efforts to identify their killer.”

BOULDER PD’S SURPRISING TWITTER RESPONSE

Boulder police have remained largely silent on JonBenet, despite the high profile of the case.

The department made statements on important anniversaries and after the Ramsey family filed the petition to take the case from them.

Someone tweeted at the Boulder Police Department on July 28: “Get JonBenét’s DNA retested!!!! Why don’t you want to put the killer behind bars?! It either proves what the police thought or it doesn’t! the problem!”

Boulder responded by saying, “Your information is incorrect. The Boulder Police Department meets regularly with multiple entities, including private labs, the FBI, the CBI, the DA’s office and others, regarding these investigations.

“In this ever-changing field of DNA analysis and testing, we are constantly speaking with these investigative stakeholders to assess how best to proceed given legal and scientific rules and restrictions.

“Because of the long time since this crime first occurred, the Boulder Police Department has had to exercise extreme caution in handling evidence and analysis.

“The Boulder Police Department has spoken to members of the Ramsey family over the past several years who have provided information to investigators (sic).

“Detectives have never stopped investigating leads that continue to come in and have the DNA tested daily in CODIS.”

JONBENET’S FAMILY REACTS TO BOULDER

On Tuesday, JonBenet’s half-brother, John Andrew Ramsey, retweeted the Boulder Police Department’s comment with a statement of his own.

“Holy Moly! A real answer from @boulderpolice!

“So here’s the problem… they’re talking about a big game, but every feeler I have out there tells me otherwise. Not to mention a terrible track record.

“Are you giving them the benefit of the doubt?”
