Anybody read "A Mother Gone Bad: The Hidden Confession of JonBenet's Killer"?
A Mother Gone Bad: The Hidden Confession of JonBenet's Killer

by Andrew G. Hodges

Paperback: 256 pages
Publisher: Village House Publishers; 2nd edition (June 1998)
ISBN-10: 0961725516


Product Description
What really happened that horrific Christmas night in 1996 when six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey was brutally murdered in her family's Boulder, Colorado mansion? Many people are convinced we'll never know. Crucial evidence is missing or was mishandled, and the investigation has appeared stymied. But now, psychiatrist Andrew G. Hodges reveals not only the identity of the killer, but also exactly what took place during the final hours of JonBenet's life - evidence that is all the more compelling because it comes directly from the killer's own mind. Dr. Hodges, who has been interviewed by detectives directly involved in the case, deciphers the hidden messages in the infamous ransom note as well as other written and spoken communications that are critical to the case. Working as a detective of the human mind, Hodges unfolds the riveting story step-by-step, Columbo style. And he shows how the murderer has clearly confessed. ..

1. That looks interesting.
When it shows up at my local library, I will read it. I know they will have many requests for it.

2. To me, all the evidence points to
JonBenet's brother Burke. I think her death was unintentional and was either the result of a choking game gone wrong, or a child's knee-jerk reaction to being tattled on for accidentally inflicting pain while playing "doctor" (which may have been a combination of a choking game and "doctor.") In my opinion (and that of certain other avid JB case followers) the only thing the adult Ramseys are guilty of is staging the coverup.

3. The brother theory makes sense to me, but I still think it was
the parents.

4. There is DNA evidence that points to someone other than a family member.
While I always thought her mother killed her because she was starting to push back against participating in the sick ritual of those pageants, once I heard that there was other DNA at the crime scene, I think this theory has been debunked.
