We don't often explore the non-political here, but there's something that's grabbed us and needs to be stated. How sad, how ironic, how utterly wrong it is that after 10 years of cruel suspicion for the heinous murder of her then-6-year old daughter JonBenet in 1996, Patsy Ramsey is not alive to experience her vindication and have closure on this tragic chapter of her life. For the nine years following JonBenet's death, before her death last year, Patsy, and husband John, were vilified by law enforcement agencies and the media in a cruel conspiracy of accusation. The worst thing in the world as a parent is the death of a child. Next to that is being accused of being responsible. That Patsy is not alive today to face her child's killer and be seen as nothing more than a horribly grieving mother of a brutally murdered child is a crime in and of itself.
