SECOND EDITION: REVISED, UPDATED AND EXPANDED
Because the JonBenet Ramsey case is so very complex, so very mysterious, with such a superabundance of both evidence and suspects, and so many assumptions, opinions, and contradictory and/or questionable testimony, it is especially important to exercise the greatest diligence in tracking down the facts and not allowing oneself get too distracted by all the rest. If we attempt to account for all the many bits and pieces of “evidence,” all the various opinions, both “expert” and inexpert, the many various suspects, no matter how “likely” each one seems to be, and the dubious testimony of the Ramseys themselves, who might well have had good reason to lie or dissemble, we will find ourselves in a hopeless morass. If, on the other hand, we stick with the facts, and logical inferences based on these facts, leavened with a healthy dose of simple common sense, then, as it seems to me, a clear picture emerges.
The 2nd edition of this book has been revised to eliminate redundancies and long technical discussions. The new edition also contains updated material, an additional chapter, and three new appendices.
