How would you feel if your six year old daughter case remains a mystery? On Christmas day of 1996 this nightmare became a reality. Six year old JonBenet Ramsey parents Patsy Ramsey and John Ramsey realized their daughter was missing at 5:52 am December 26th 1996. Patsy then found a two and a half page ransom note on the kitchen staircase. After she found the ransom note she hysterically called 911. The local police then conducted a search of their home noticing there was no noticeable signs of break in or forced entry.

She held a lot of pageant titles including Americas Royal Miss, Colorado State All-Star Kids Cover Girl, Little Miss Charlevoix Michian, Little Miss Colorado, Little Miss Sunburst and National Tiny Miss Beauty.

The first thing detectives notice is the ransom note is very long. In most cases the ransom note is short and straight to the point. The kidnappers demand $118,000 specially $100,000 in hundred dollar bills and
