The case has always fascinated me, probably because I had a blond-haired, blue-eyed little girl exactly her age when she died. All the news about her broke my heart. Her face seems to be everywhere lately: - 20 yr anniversary is coming up. - Brother is speaking out for first time on Dr. Phil next week - new movies/documentaries are planned - private investigator's old Michael Helgoth theory is gaining headlines Just wondering what your theory is. I'll post mine in an answer later.

Savvy,now that you said that I will complete my answer. I feel that the mother caught the father abusing her and lost it out of jealousy. To many things point to it being inside. Just my opinion, Greg.
Children can have bed-wetting problems without sexual abuse. Just the stress of pageant competition could bring that on. Was there any physical evidence of sexual abuse? Just curious.
Good point. The FBI concluded that there was no evidence. Other doctors who examined her said that there had been abuse Some examiners were pulled off the case.
Thanks for this valuable info. Sad, just so sad.
Paula, you are so right, and it's a shame there's nothing that can be done to get rid of the sickos that do these terrible things. A 'cure' would be the ideal, but barring that . . .
I don't think most police are inclined to believe that it was an intruder. The Ramsey's did not cooperate with the police. http://www.nbc.com/dateline/video/dateline-who-kil...
U may already know this but: Sept 18th @ 8:30pm on CBS a mini-series is scheduled to air on a brand new Re-investigation of this case. I know I'll be glued.
Greg..I can understand UR girlfriend's stand, simply Bcuz suspecting a parent (especially Mom) is so very difficult 4 humans 2 conceive. Murder itself is wicked, of a child, even worse..add 2 that a Mom killing her own child & we can't bear it!
Some mothers kill. Hard to stomach, but true nonetheless. And as I mentioned, a Grand jury indicted the parents based upon evidence.
Hello Yves....True, as ugly a fact, parents do kill. I recall the actions of the Gr. Jury, which of course were ultimately useless when the Prosecutor refused to charge them. Did U watch Burke today on Dr, Phil? He is the spitting image of Patsy!!
If I'm not mistaken, there is a Part 2 tomorrow. I wasn't able to see the entire segment today, but what I watched was very interesting. Burke seems sweet & sincere but I couldn't help but note his maturity level seemed stunted for a 29 yr. old
Hi Paula. I didn't see Dr. Phil. Did Burke remember anything?
Basically Yves, he recalled what we might expect a 9 yr. old to have been impressed by & he seemingly blocked quite a bit out which is understandable.He is adamant his parents could/would not have, harmed her. Described them as loving & gentl
Thanks for getting back to me, Paula.
