I am a TC junkie.  I read tons of it and am addicted to any TC tv shows.  However, unsolved crimes really bother me.  I want an ENDING to something, not loose ends.  I refuse to read or watch anything about Jon Bonet Ramsey.  I think that is the one that really bothers me.  I do not understand how that crime has not been solved after all these years.  Am I just odd or does anyone else feel the same way?

I don't think it's odd, I don't think anyone likes a crime unsolved, especially the family members .  Things went wrong with the Jon Benet case from the very beginning and that's not the only crime that is big news that probably won't be solved.  I think it all starts at the very beginning.  I will say that the book on Jon Benet, by Steve Thomas was probably the closet we will ever get to what really happened.

Aphrodite Jones is looking into the case again on her show I believe It starts in March I will have to make sure.I think since there was DNA it could be solved they just decided one of the family did it and it just went down hill. I had never felt so sorry for a family Jon Benet was obviously Patsy Ramsey;s reason to be and her father adored her.,I just could not imagine what would make someone think that these people would kill there child after spending the evening with friends celebrating Christmas. Such a sad case is the book you mentioned above the best in as far as ur concerned? I would like to read one but not a hack job like so many of the early ones were.

I believe that the intruder was in the home when they got back from the party they were at.  ,Everyone thinks the bed ruffle that was messed up looked like some one has slide under and out everything in that house was immaculate I think it was an important clue.  I also think he wrote the note when he first got there thats why it was on paper from the house.  I would almost guess it was a person on the perifory of there life someone Jon Benet  had seen before but not close enough the family would ever think of him  .I would guess he spotted her at her dads work maybe a security guy or a janitor type person or it was someone who saw her at the pagents or someone who did work at the Ramsey home  I bet the person is somewhere in the case files but was looked over. .I think if they wouldn;t have focused on the family and no one else this could  have been solved.  They still think it may have been a guy who commited suicide the day after but I don;t think he was sophisticated enough.I dearly wish this case would be solved.

I dont like to read books that are heavily covered in the media so I havent read any about Jon Benet. I read Mommy's Little Girl by Diane Fanning about Casey Anthony and was unsatisfied with the ending. I felt like she rushed the book so she could be the first one or so she could put out the book while interest in the case was high.

I read it to and was dissapointed but I did get a bit of an insiders view of the Anthony's household it seem they only see what they want to see Cindys fanily thought there were major problem going on with Casy just like denying she was PG when it was obvious and   Cindy she was a nurse. I also find it so strange no one even her best friends and family knew who the father of her daughter was and the guy who died who she said was the father that family does not believe it they had never known her and at one point asked her to submit her daughters DNA to se if it was the deceased son child but she refused.That house seemed like a house of secrets, denial  and just plain crazy thinking.sad

For me the most disturbing unsolved crime is the one of the boy in the box or "Americas unknown child" how some call it. So many investigators tried to give him a name since 1957 and no one could figure out who the boy was. Such a sad case. :-(

I know I posted above that I didnt like it that Diane Fanning put the book out before the trial was over but now I'm getting into watching the trial and I'm glad I have the background information so I know what is going on.
