BOULDER, Colo. (AP) ó Prosecutors say new DNA tests have cleared JonBenet Ramsey’s family in the 1996 killing of the 6-year-old beauty queen.
Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy said Wednesday the tests point to an “unexplained third party.”
She says prosecutors don’t consider any member of the Ramsey family to be a suspect.
JonBenet’s father, John Ramsey, a software entrepreneur, has said in interviews he believes the case will be solved.
Her mother, Patsy Ramsey, died June 24, 2006, of ovarian cancer at the age of 49 in Atlanta, where the family moved after JonBenet’s death.
