JonBenet Ramsey’s Parents Sue Fox News


— December 24, 2003

The parents of slain 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey filed a $12 million federal defamation lawsuit against Fox News Network over a story they say cast suspicion on them.

In the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Atlanta, John and Patsy Ramsey took issue with a report that aired last year for the six-year anniversary of JonBenet’s death. In it, a Denver-based employee stated there has “never been any evidence to link an intruder to her brutal murder.” . . .

[P]rosecutors and a federal judge have said evidence in the case was more consistent with the theory that an intruder killed JonBenet. The parents were never charged.
