Dear Mr. Kane,
I wish to talk with the grand jury about the subject of the book Presumed Guilty by Stephen Singular: various ways child pornography and/or abuse could have been the original motive(s) for what became JonBenet's murder. One obvious possible connection with child porn is through JonBenet's pageant life. Pam Griffin, JonBenet's costume maker, says in the book (p.110) "One time Randy [Simons -also pageant photographer for JonBenet] wanted to shoot Kristine [Pam's daughter] nude, but I said absolutely not."
There are other possible connections between the Ramseys and the child porn/sex world that should be investigated. Keeping a lid on this ultimate taboo could mean death for a headstrong child like JonBenet who couldn't otherwise be silenced.
Child porn and abuse are deeply ingrained into Boulder society. Some evidence is:
There have been many other recent child sex abuse cases here, including several with the convicts in possession of JonBenet's photos, including Sean King. The above are all prominent people. Related evidence includes:
All the referenced newspaper articles are available from me on request.
The inability of the FBI to explain to former Denver DA and Lockheed-Martin executive Norm Early why they never took charge of the Ramsey case -an apparent kidnapping of a top Defense contractor executive's daughter by foreign terrorists- is suspicious and an apparent violation of the "Lindbergh Law." Det. Linda Arndt stated on TV last week that she specifically asked for FBI assistance and did not receive it. She received no backup of any kind, having been told everyone was in a meeting -for hours starting about 7:30 AM the day after Christmas. Were they in a meeting with or about the FBI? Mr. McFarland has a contact with information that Lockheed-Martin security were in the Ramsey house before the BPD. We have available a video of Mr. Early discussing the issue on a recent TV show.
John DeCamp, Esq., former Nebraska State Senator, in his book The Franklin Coverup describing the State of Nebraska's investigation into the failure of Omaha's Franklin Saving and Loan, shows that the FBI protected child molesters and killers and intimidated child victims and witnesses. One of Mr. DeCamp's former-child clients Paul Bonacci won a related $1,000,000 judgment against Larry King, the former president of Franklin, just this spring.
[In the rest of this version of the letter for the public, names have been replaced with XXX, YYY and ZZZ. In the version for the DA, the real names were used and more details given. -Evan Ravitz]
The Singular book also concerns -disguised to avoid libel- Mr. XXX, a highly ranked official in Boulder City government. Mr. XXX has admitted to two prominent and respected friends of mine that in 1991 a box of sex toys and pornography were found in his City Hall office during an office move that occurred when Mr. XXX was out. He further admitted that 3 women employed at City Hall alleged he harassed them, though none filed charges. I was in mediation with Mr. XXX when I learned these things, and that City Council had sent him to counseling. I asked who was paying for his therapy and he said that he was.
The late Ron Porter, when he was President of the Boulder Bar Association, moved to investigate Mr. XXX, but apparently nobody would talk. There should be some record of this. I also have 3 names of eye-witnesses to what was in the Pandora's box.
What we suspect is that Mr. XXX' pornography was child porn, for 3 reasons:
If Mr. XXX has possessed child porn, he would want to keep the spotlight off other people's similar "peccadilloes." This is the "Belgian Syndrome" mentioned in Dr. McFarland's interview with Donald Freed. Because DA Hunter was on vacation incommunicado at the time of the murder he could not be contacted for advice on proceeding with the highest profile case ever here. The grand jury should determine if Mr. XXX was consulted.
If indeed a network of highly-connected pedophiles exists here as in Belgium and France, Mr. XXX or others could have acted to keep (sincere) FBI investigators away. A one-time "suspect" in this case told me he was shown a bookcase of videos in the home of prominent Boulder drug-case attorney Mr. ZZZ and told these were all child porn. Mr. ZZZ left Boulder soon after the murder and moved to a monastery in Wyoming. Phone records of XXX and ZZZ should be examined for calls to FBI or Lockheed Martin numbers that morning.
DA Hunter and the police might be reluctant to investigate Mr. XXX. According to the Singular book (p. 90) Hunter said "If this got into the hands of certain people in the media it would further embarrass Boulder and make the town look worse than it already does. What are you going to do with this information?" You the outsider should exhaust all leads, this being a government of laws and not of men.
Dr. McFarland and I have been careful not to libel Mr. XXX for 7 years. Once we saw the possible connection to the Ramsey case we worked with a reputable author for 2 years to get the story told right. We want to do the right thing and give more complete details to the grand jury.
