It is reported that the Boulder police are investigating an "online tip" about a possible confession made in a guestbook at an internet web site. A search warrant was filed in VA (AOL's HQs) for the subscriber's name, other screen names, e-mail files, buddy lists and aliases.
The confession reportedly said: "This is very hard for me to say, and I hope everyone can find somewhere in their hearts to forgive me...I was there when the whole thing occurred. I never wanted any part in it, but they said if I didn't help I would be killed as well. I was only 14 when this took place, so I went along with the whole plan." This information was allegedly posted by a poster from AOL known as "BnJazzy4ever45".
Further information revealed that she claimed a man who was a handyman for the Ramseys was one of the murderers. This poster reportedly claimed to have been abducted by three men after she overheard their plan to murder JonBenét. After taking her hostage, they made her print directions to the Ramsey home from her computer before the group embarked on a three-day road trip to Boulder. Once there, the girl said she was forced to go inside the Ramsey home and watch as the men undressed JonBenét, assaulted her and then redressed her.
(NOTE: As it turned out this was yet another red herring).
