Letter From the McReynolds

We wish to commend the Boulder City Council for giving a hearing to Fleet White Jr., who is requesting a special prosecutor in the JonBenét Ramsey murder. We believe that the questions raised about the conduct of the District Attorney, Alex Hunter, in this case demand the most serious consideration.

Our family has been under scrutiny almost from the beginning of this case. Every member of our family has been interrogated and our two sons were required to give fingerprints, handwriting samples and DNA, even though neither of them was aware of the existence of little JonBenét before she was killed.

In the course of the interrogations we became acquainted with Detective Steve Thomas, recently resigned, and his partner, Ron Gosse. We have the highest respect for them. In July, we returned to Boulder after a year's absence and were interviewed by prosecutors in the District Attorney's office. we were not encouraged by the discoveries we made.

The latest "scuttlebutt" that we are receiving is that, indeed, there will be a Grand Jury investigation orchestrated by the District Attorney and that there will be no indictment.

We do not see that prognosis as being beneficial to the hundreds of innocent people who, like ourselves, have been caught in the web of evil surrounding this case.

Good people, wake up. This little girl, JonBenét, did not commit suicide.
