Audio Bombshell Discovered In JonBenet Case

The famous case of the six-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey is a murder mystery that won't go away.

In June, one of the original suspects in the case, Gary Howard Oliva, made headlines when he was arrested for possessing child pornography.

Now, CBS has produced a two-part documentary series called “The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey.”  For the special, CBS put together a team led by retired FBI supervisory special agent and profiler Jim Clemente and former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst Laura Richards, notes Rolling Stone.

The basic facts of the murder are familiar to almost anyone who has watched television during the past 20 years. JonBenet’s body was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her home, and her parents were the primary suspects for many years. It was not until 2008 that they were officially cleared of any wrongdoing.

However, as a result of the CBS investigation, an extra six seconds of the original 911 call has been uncovered -- CBS suggests that this six-second addition implicates the family after all, reports the Daily Mail.

Thanks to modern technology, the voices of three people can now be heard having a conversation after JonBenet’s mother thought she had hung up with 911 operators. The newly-found audio allegedly contains three phrases spoken by JonBenet's parents, John and Patsy, and her older brother, Burke.

Investigators contend that John can be heard saying, “We're not speaking to you,” followed by Patsy exclaiming, “What did you do? Help me, Jesus.” Burke is allegedly heard asking, “What did you find?” which contradicts the parents' testimony that he was not awake at the time.

In addition to the alleged audio revelations, the original ransom note was also re-examined by forensic linguistic analyst James Fitzgerald, who concludes that it is fraudulent.

The CBS special aired the second episode on Sept. 19.
