The Mystery Continues…with Murder, She Writes!

More than 20 years ago, the nation was shocked by the horrible death of JonBenét Ramsey, the tiny, six-year-old beauty pageant princess who was found tortured and murdered in the basement of her Boulder home in December 1996. It was a homicide that rocked our Colorado community, and yet the case has never been solved.

Paula Woodward, an award-winning author and former investigative journalist from Channel 9, KUSA-TV, reported on that story from its very beginning. In 2016, Woodward wrote a book about the murder, unveiling the evidence, interviews and police reports – including details that even the crime scene investigators missed! The title of her book begins with the killer’s own four ominous words scrawled in a ransom note found at the crime scene – We Have Your Daughter: The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét Ramsey, Twenty Years Later.

Woodward’s in-depth account of events surrounding JonBenét’s death were the focal point of Murder, She Writes!, a fundraising luncheon and audience-interactive conversation hosted by the Jefferson County Library Foundation (JCLF). Neal Browne, Woodward’s former KUSA colleague and a JCLF Board member, served as the event emcee.

The benefit was held on Friday, April 27, at the Club at Rolling Hills, 15707 W. 26th Avenue in Golden, and Woodward’s book was available for purchase and signing at the luncheon.
