New Clues Reported in Ramsey Slaying

From Times Wire Reports

Boulder police have new evidence in the JonBenet Ramsey slaying from tests on clothes belonging to the girl's parents, a television network reported. Fox Television quoted investigation sources as saying the examination of clothes worn by the 6-year-old's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, on the eve of the killing is giving investigators new hope of solving the case. The report did not offer any specifics. The former Little Miss Colorado was found beaten and strangled in the family's home Dec. 26, 1996. Both parents have maintained their innocence. Boulder police asked the Ramseys to turn over the clothes they were wearing Dec. 25, 1996. The family complied with the request in January of this year. The autopsy performed on the child found clothing fibers in the pelvic area, the investigation sources told Fox.
