Colorado police chief speaks to Reddit about Ramsey murder case

The man responsible for the JonBenet Ramsey investigation, former Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner, spoke to Reddit on Thursday, discussing his involvement in the Ramsey case, this past weekend. Beckner participated in a Q&A with the social-network site Reddit, where he discussed the murder case of JonBenet Ramsey. He told reporters he didn’t realize his comments would be made public to the rest of the world. He first began showing signs of regret after making some earlier comments on Tuesday.

Beckner was the police chief during the JonBenet Ramsey case. Six-year-old beauty queen JonBenet was found murdered in the basement of her home in 1996. The case, full of lurid twists and turns, gripped the nation and made her parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, into celebrities as well as persons of interest in the case. On Reddit, Beckner’s responses shed a lot of light on some of the more complex and questionable parts of the case. However, he later told the Boulder-based Daily Camera newspaper that he had misgivings about the online chat, calling it a misunderstanding and naiveté’ on his part. His comments have virtually disappeared from the Reddit forum; however, the Denver Post has archived copies of his answers.
