It’s been twenty years since JonBenet Ramsey was murdered. Over the years several people have been accused of the crime but always with little or no proof and circumstantial evidence at best. Now, the private detective, Ollie Gray, who was hired by the Ramsey family, has come out and named the man he claims committed the murder, Michael Helgoth, who was 26 at the time of the murder. He claims he has plenty of evidence to back up his claim.
“Based on what we know, I believe Helgoth and his accomplices committed the crime,” Gray told InTouch.
Another man, John Kenady, who previously worked for Helgoth, agreed. Kenady said Helgoth was also the man responsible for the brutal killing of the 6-year-old girl.
“There was a tape recording made by Helgoth,” Kenady said. “And in it, he said he killed JonBenet.”
Kenady told InTouch that the incriminating tape still exists but police are overlooking it as evidence. The reason the police would do this is unclear, but Kenady assures the public the confession of guilt is clearly stated on that tape.
JonBenet was killed on Christmas day in 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. Police have not stopped investigating her death since. While they have cleared some suspects, they have never brought someone to justice.
A month before the little girl’s murder, Kenady first started getting suspicious of Helgoth.He didn’t trust the guy.
Allegedly, Helgroth told Kenady that “he and a partner were going to make a great deal and they each will bring in around $50,000 or $60,000,” reports CBS show “48 Hours.”
“I will never forget they were walking toward his house and he said, ‘I wonder what it would be like to crack a human skull,’” Kenady told InTouch. “I was amazed. I thought it was a very odd thing to say.”
When JonBenet’s body was found, she had been strangled and bludgeoned. Her skull was cracked. Had Helgoth’s twisted fantasy come true?
Helgoth died of a seemingly staged suicide, Kenady said. The gun was by his right side but the bullet was to his left. Kenady thinks Helgoth was killed to keep his mouth shut by an accomplice. That means another killer is still lurking out there.
“He was murdered to keep his mouth shut,” Kenady claims.
