Ramsey Parents Cleared by DNA

JonBenet Ramsey's parents have been cleared of her murder by DNA after years of suspicion and speculation.

New DNA tests have definitively cleared the parents of U.S. child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey of her unsolved murder almost 12 years ago, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

In a statement seeking to silence suspicions surrounding relatives of the slain 6-year-old, prosecutors in the U.S. said new testing techniques on male DNA found on JonBenet's clothes did not match any family members...

JonBenet's mother, Patsy, died of ovarian cancer in 2006, still fighting to clear her name.

"The suspicions about the Ramseys in this case created an ongoing living hell for the Ramsey family and their friends, which added to their suffering from the unexplained and devastating loss of JonBenet," Lacy said in a separate statement on Wednesday.

Lacy apologized for the distress caused to the Ramseys and said she wished her office could have cleared them before Patsy Ramsey died.

This is really a shame.  That girl's mother died of cancer under a cloud of suspicion that she had either killed or knew who killed her daughter.  The amount of stress and worry that must have caused Patsy Ramsey, a cancer patient, is immearsurable.

This case is a prime example why trial by media is a bad idea...all it does is torture the innocent.  Everything that the media attention, the speculation, the talking head pronouncements and the neighborhood shunning did to that family cannot be undone.  Patsy Ramsey cannot be brought back from the dead to try again to treat her cancer with a calm head and heart with peace around her, the surviving son cannot go back and relive his childhood free of rumors and innuendos...it's really a shame. 

Trials should only take place in a court of law.
