When Boulder police present the JonBenét Ramsey murder case to the district attorney next week, two veterans of the O.J. Simpson defense team will be there, along with several Denver area prosecutors and police officers.
About 26 people are expected to observe the case presentation Monday and Tuesday at the Coors Events and Conference Center at the University of Colorado.
Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter has said he will decide within 30 days of the presentation whether to grant investigators' request for a grand jury investigation into the unsolved slaying. Six-year-old JonBenét was found dead in her family's basement Dec. 26, 1996, several hours after being reported kidnapped.
Two Simpson alumni, Dr. Henry Lee, director of the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Laboratory, and Barry Scheck, an attorney famed for his DNA analysis, will bring their insight to Boulder next week.
"I want those people who have been on the case from the beginning and those who bring fresh approaches to analyzing and evaluating the evidence," Hunter said Thursday.
"I want my longtime, trusted advisers there."
To that effect, 10 members of Hunter's staff will be present, including Chief Trial Deputy Peter Hofstrom; assistant district attorneys Bill Wise and Phil Miller; Chief Deputy Pete Maguire; senior trial deputies Trip DeMuth, Mary Keenan and John Pickering; and retired Colorado Springs detective Lou Smit.
Hunter's newest staff member, grand jury specialist Michael Kane, also will attend. Kane reported to work Tuesday and was sworn in by Boulder District Chief Judge Joseph Bellipanni as a deputy district attorney.
Three Denver area district attorneys have been invited as well — Adams County's Bob Grant, Denver's Bill Ritter and Arapahoe County's Jim Peters.
For investigative expertise, Hunter will bring along Tom Haney, a 29-year veteran of the Denver Police Department currently supervising homicide investigations, and Dan Schuler, a witness interview specialist from the Broomfield Police Department.
The Ramsey case will be presented by Detective Cmdr. Mark Beckner and Sgt. Tom Wickman, along with the six detectives still assigned to the investigation.
Beckner and Hunter are scheduled to hold a press conference at the end of the two-day meeting.

I SPOKE TO SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO ATTRENDED THIS GATHERING - AND THE "STAR" WAS VASSAR PROFESSOR DON FOSTER.

He promoted the theory of his friend Steve Thomas - Patsy did it. Had Kolar been pushing Foster, I believe Foster would have made a case against Burke - equally as bogus.

I would love a copy of the transcript of that meeting but don't think LE will ever release it as it would really embarrass the investigators who high-fived each other at the end.

It was after that meeting that the BPD became aware of Foster's "work" beforehand. He was exposed as a charlatan and general jerk - - - but Kane still wanted him to speak to the grand jury. I know he personally did not appear but was told his theory was not only presented but pushed as credible.

Shame on Kane and company for doing that.

Exactly.  There's so much evidence in this case that has been covered up.

Lol why they would even want to bring "investigators" from the OJ case is beyond me. Look at the outcome of that murder case, lol.


They picked investigators who fit their agenda of "Ramsey's did it" "Patsy did it". They wouldnt dare bring someone like Lou Smit there.. because he would call out their ridiculous thinking and present the truth.

Henry Lee has proven himself, over and over to be a dumb*** and a liar. Especially in the past year or so with the CBS "documentary". What a joke.
