Almost eight hours after her mother, Patsy Ramsey said she got a ransom note demanding $118,000, her father, John Ramsey found her body. They thought she’d been abducted at first and called the police, despite the note warning them that their daughter would be killed if they did so.

Despite the police arrival and investigation, the scene was not properly secured. When hours had passed, all but one of the officers had left and that detective advised John Ramsey to look for clues within the home on his own. His daughter was hiding down there.
John Ramsey told ABC News’ Barbara Walters in an interview:
“I knew instantly what I found. I found my daughter, She was lying on a white blanket. The blanket was wrapped around her. Her hands were tied above her head. She had tape over her mouth. … I immediately knelt down over her, felt her cheek, took the tape off immediately off her mouth. I tried to untie the cord that was around her arms and I couldn’t get the knot untied.”
The coroner’s office in Boulder County arrived at the home at 10:45 p.m. to take JonBenét’s body. The Ramseys’ hometown of Marietta, Georgia is where JonBenét was laid to rest. The 1992 vehicle accident that took the life of her half-sister left her to be laid to rest beside her.
