2002 - 48 Hours
 Erin Moriarty: "Did your daughter have a bedwetting incident that night? Did you get up?  Did you get
         angry and did you hurt her?"

         Patsy Ramsey: "No I did not."
         Erin Moriarty: "What is your reaction when you know that many people think that's what you did?"
         Patsy Ramsey: "They are wrong, I don't know what else to say. How else do you say no except no?
         No means no."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) Over the last several months, we have spent a great deal of time with the
         Ramseys, these favorite villains of the tabloids...

         (Program showing background shots of John Ramsey struggling to turn a jeep around in a yard)
         John Ramsey: (In jeep) "These big old tires make this hard to turn"
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "...and have seen them in a way few others have"
         (Background shots of movers packing furniture in Ramseys' Atlanta home)
         John Ramsey: (In garage holding fishing tackle box) "Fishing box, that hasn't been used in a long time."
         (Background shots of Patsy packing items in kitchen)
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) On this day just this past summer...."
         John Ramsey: (In garage holding flight bag) "flight bag"
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) : " ...John and Patsy Ramsey are moving."
         Patsy Ramsey: "Life has never been the same and it has basically ruined us financially and emotionally
         and everything else - so we're scaling back."

         Patsy Ramsey: (Carrying box out of house) "My wedding dress"
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) : "They are selling their million dollar home in Atlanta and moving to a smaller
         townhouse just down the road."

        Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) : "John Ramsey, once the head of a billion dollar software company hasn't
         worked for four years while Patsy has been quite literally fighting for her life."

         Patsy Ramsey: (with her paintings) "This is my self portrait. Here's my broken heart, my tears."
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) : "In a rear unguarded moment........"
         Patsy Ramsey: "I thought I would paint during my cancer treatment, but I was just so sick I couldn't do it."
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "...without her makeup, without her wig, without even her eyebrows drawn
         in, you can clearly see the damage left by the return of her cancer."

         Erin Moriarty: "How did you find out?"
         Patsy Ramsey: "I was back in February for my annual checkup"
         (Patsy playing with dog, Molly.)
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "Nine years ago Patsy learned she had stage four ovarian cancer. She
         made what she hoped was a full recovery but earlier this year she again went through debilitating

         Erin Moriarty: "You lost your hair...."
         Patsy Ramsey: "Yes. Its growing back. My eyebrows are growing back. It all comes out but you now
         what, it's a very little thing to worry about."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "In fact Patsy Ramsey has much bigger concerns. Almost from the
         moment the body of their six year old daughter, JonBenét was discovered, Boulder police believed John
         and Patsy killed their daughter and then staged a kidnapping complete with a rambling two and a half
         page ransom note to cover it up."

         John Ramsey: "They've never investigated this case other than to investigate the family. They have
         never investigated this case."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "Even though a Boulder grand jury, in 1999, looking at all the evidence decided
         not to indict the Ramsey's, and while police say they haven't ruled out other theories, to this day the
         Ramseys remain the prime suspects, as you will see in this video tape obtained exclusively by 48 Hours."

         Lin Wood: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition of Mark Beckner) "You have not classified
         any individual as a suspect."

         Mark Beckner: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition) "Publicly, correct."
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "While testifying under oath in a civil case just last November, Boulder
         Police Chief Mark Beckner admitted what had never before said publicly."

         Mark Beckner: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition) "Internally, John and Patsy are
         considered suspects."

         Lin Wood: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition of Mark Beckner) "Both of them."
         Mark Beckner: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition) "Yes"
         Lin Wood: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition of Mark Beckner) "Are considered to have
         probably been involved in the death of their daughter."

         Mark Beckner: (November 26, 2001 10:29 civil case deposition) "Probability, yes"
         Erin Moriarty: "Why do you think you remain probably the prime suspects in the eyes of the Boulder

         Patsy Ramsey: "I asked Mark Beckner that. I came closer to him in the face than I am to you, Erin,
         and I said, 'Tell me what it is that makes you think I killed my beautiful, precious child?' and he said
         'Well, well, it's just a lot of little things.' I think he really doesn't know."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "But because police didn't have enough evidence, sources within the
         investigation tell 48 Hours, the police tried to psychologically break the Ramseys hoping one or both
         would confess."

         John Ramsey: "It was a strategy that was put in place to bring immense pressure on us to break us."
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "That strategy, by some in the department, claims John Ramsey, included a
         relentless campaign of leaks fed mostly to the nations tabloids, that had a devastating effect on the
         public opinion."

         Lin Wood: "They convinced the public of guilt."
         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "Lin Wood is John and Patsy Ramsey's attorney"
         Lin Wood: "You couldn't go to buy groceries for your family without passing headlines that said that John
         Ramsey had molested his first daughter. Absolutely false. Headlines that John and Patsy Ramsey were
         pornographers. Absolutely false. Headlines that they were devil worshipers. Absolutely false."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "The Ramseys believe that the Boulder Police still, to this day, continue to
         ignore evidence pointing to other suspects.

         John Ramsey: "It's frustrating.  It's disappointing. It makes me angry."
         Erin Moriarty: "You say it makes you angry but you don't seem angry. Do you think that's also hurt you
         in the eyes of the public?"

         John Ramsey: "Well, we're not soap opera actors. I mean, I suppose if I was an actor I could act really
         angry, but I'm not, that's who I am. That's what you see and I'm angry (slapping one fist into palm of
         other hand) This is angry for me."

         Erin Moriarty: (Voice Over) "Angry because John Ramsey says a killer or killers remain free."
         John Ramsey: "What I do know is that we didn't kill our daughter, so let's look at the rest of the picture, guys."
