Man Reportedly Being Held in Thailand in Connection With the Killing
Aug. 16, 2006 — - An arrest has been made in connection with JonBenet Ramsey murder case, Ramsey family attorney Hal Haddon told ABC News.
The arrest comes nearly 10 years after the 6-year-old girl was found strangled and beaten to death in the basement of her home on the day after
Christmas, in a case that shocked the country and that has remained unsolved.
The Associated Press, citing U.S. law enforcement officials, reported that a man was arrested in Thailand in connection with the slaying.
JonBenet Ramsey, a child beauty queen, was found murdered in the basement of her family's upscale Boulder, Colo., home the day after Christmas,
Her mother, Patsy Ramsey, first found a handwritten ransom note on the back staircase of the home. It demanded $118,000 -- the exact amount the little
girl's father, John Ramsey had received as a corporate bonus -- if the family wanted to see JonBenet again. Eight hours later, Patsy Ramsey found her
badly beaten daughter's body in the basement.
