JonBenet Ramsey house back on the market for $1.9 million

Homes

More than 17 years ago, JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in her Boulder, Colo., home, a crime that has never led to charges. Now the house, a five-bedroom luxury home, is back on the market for $1.9 million.

Ramsey’s family never spent another night in the house after the 6-year-old beauty queen's body was found on Dec. 26, 1996. The house, which has changed hands several times, has been on the market for more than 127 days, according to the Bernardi Real Estate Group's website.

The Boulder Daily Camera first reported on the availability of the house.  

“The elegance of past generations combined with modern updates makes this beautifully updated 1920s home unique!” according to the listing. “Grand rooms, great light & an oversized gated lot in one of the nicest and most sought after neighborhoods in Boulder!”

The Ramseys purchased the house, then known as 755 15th St., for $500,000 in 1991, according to the newspaper, citing Boulder County assessor records.

In 1998, the Ramseys sold the house for $650,000 to a group of investors. The current owners of the home, Tim Milner and his wife, Carol Schuller Milner, the daughter of “Hour of Power” televangelist Robert H. Schuller, purchased the home for $1.05 million in 2004, the paper said.

The home has been on and off the market since. As recently as 2011, the 7,240-square-foot house was listed for $2.3 million.

Ramsey was a child beauty queen whose death captured the nation's attention. She was found in the basement of the house about eight hours after she had been reported missing. She had been struck on the head and strangled.

Colorado officials initially suspected her parents and her brother, but the family was partially exonerated in 2003 and completely exonerated in 2009.
