The abode where the lifeless body of the six-year-old pageant princess, JonBenét Ramsey, was discovered in the basement in 1996, now stands for sale at an exorbitant price of nearly $7 million.
This grand mansion, boasting five bedrooms and occupying an impressive 7,240 square feet, is situated in Boulder, Colorado. It graced the market on Wednesday and has undergone several on-and-off listings since 2008. In 2014, it was last offered for sale at an asking price of almost $2 million.
The listing by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty eloquently describes the residence as a “Stately and modernized 1920’s Tudor estate in an epic Boulder location,” emphasizing its timeless allure.
The captivating photo tour reveals the vast lower level of the house, adorned with “stone accents,” featuring a resplendent refinished basement area now transformed into a “media room, wet bar, wine cellar, fireplace, and half bath.”
Notably, the listing refrains from disclosing the unsettling events of 1996.
Records from the Boulder County assessor indicate that the Ramseys originally acquired the property in 1991, later selling it to a group of investors in 1998, as documented by The Denver Post.
In 2001, alterations were made to the numerical address of the residence, accompanied by the addition of landscaping and fencing to dissuade the inquisitive. The present listing highlights the presence of “towering trees” and a “gated for privacy” aspect.
Tragically, on December 26, 1996, JonBenét was discovered in the home, subjected to sexual assault, beating, and strangulation, and her assailant still remains at large.
In November, the Boulder police announced their collaboration with the Colorado Cold Case Review Team to reexamine JonBenét’s case. Multiple law enforcement agencies, including local, state, and federal authorities, the District Attorney’s Office, Colorado’s Department of Public Safety, Colorado’s Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and DNA laboratories have united their efforts.
“This heinous crime has left a profound void in the hearts of many, and we shall relentlessly pursue justice until we apprehend JonBenét’s killer,” asserted Police Chief Maris Herold in the update. “Our unwavering dedication compels us to pursue every lead and cooperate with policing partners and DNA experts across the nation to resolve this tragic case. The Boulder Police Department remains resolute in making this investigation an enduring priority.”
During the initial stages of the investigation, the child’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, were considered primary suspects by the Boulder police. Patsy’s untimely demise in 2006 due to ovarian cancer eventually led to the public exoneration of the Ramseys two years later. John continues to uphold their innocence.
