JonBenet paper-doll cutout book rejected as 'too painful to family'

BOULDER -- A local artist planning a JonBenet Ramsey paper-doll book has been told by a lawyer to cut it out.

Connie Marshall approached the Ramsey family for permission to publish a 16-page cutout book featuring JonBenet modeling 30 paper-doll costumes, said attorney William Gray, who has been retained by the Ramseys.

All the costumes were to be reproductions of outfits the kindergartner wore for the beauty pageants at which she competed so successfully, columnist Cindy Adams reported in Wednesday's New York Post.

The book was to be titled Tribute to JonBonet, with the murdered child's household-famous name misspelled.

"The cover art is a big star plus a head shot of Boulder's murdered child beauty queen plus a full length bathing-suit shot where she's blowing bubbles,'' Adams wrote.

"We received a solicitation for approval from that person (Marshall),'' Gray said.

"We are not in a position to give permission for commercial use of JonBenet's image. It is too painful to the family.''

Marshall, a 1978 graduate of the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, could not be reached for comment.

Meanwhile, investigators Wednesday completed their third day of work at the Ramseys' vacant home, where JonBenet was found with a fractured skull and strangled the day after Christmas. They are nearing the end of their second extensive search of the property.
