More than two decades after the devastating gruesome murder of American child beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey, her half-brother John Andrew Ramsey opened up about his hope that the killer can be found.


2021 makes it 25 years since JonBenét Ramsey, a shining star and child beauty queen, was gruesomely murdered, but her loved ones have not given up on the prevalence of justice concerning her case.

In a recent interview with Fox News, JonBenét’s half-brother John Andrew Ramsey opened up about his hope that justice will be served no matter how long. He spoke about the new documentary “JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened?”

John explained that the new crime series, which explores the unreleased audio diaries of Lou Smit, the homicide detective investigating the case, was aired to raise awareness about the issue. Explaining his reason, he said:

“The reality is we have a murder investigation that has dozens, if not hundreds, of pieces of physical evidence. There is an abundance of evidence that’s available. This case can be solved.”


John recalled his beloved half-sister’s energetic lifestyle, gushing about how she loved to play with her siblings. He noted that she was the one who kept the conversation going at the dinner table.

According to reports, the mystery surrounding her death began on Dec. 23.


Unfortunately, her bright light was snuffed out on Christmas Day 1996. In a recent interview, John recalled the day of the tragic incident. He explained that he was on a flight from Atlanta, getting ready to meet his family from his dad’s side.

He and his sister were on the flight, hoping to catch up with their loved ones the day after Christmas when a flight attendant handed him a note asking him the call home. That was when he heard the tragic news.


Little JonBenét was tragically murdered when she was six years old. The daughter of John Bennett and Patsey Ramsey, she was a frequent face in beauty pageants. According to reports, the mystery surrounding her death began on Dec. 23.

A 911 call was received from the Ramsey home in Colorado, but it was dismissed as a prank call from a drunk person. On the morning after Christmas, Patsy woke to find a ransom note asking for $118,000 for JonBenét, kidnapped.


On calling the authorities, it was later discovered that JonBenét had been killed. She was found in the basement. Her parents were initially considered as the primary suspects but were cleared after they didn’t match the DNA found.

John Sr., in the documentary about his late daughter, spoke about the pain he

felt by how the police misjudged

him and his wife, accusing them of killing their daughter. He confessed that the actions of the authorities negatively affected his life.
