Summary

Nationally renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht and New York Times bestselling author Charles Bosworth, Jr. have written a riveting narrative that exposes the disturbing truth behind the Christmas day murder of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey. Dr. Wecht's expert analysis of the public record leads to shocking new conclusions divulged here for the first time.

There is evidence that the child beauty queen's death was a tragic accident, not a deliberate murder. Autopsy evidence is consistent with sexual abuse prior to her death, and certain crime scene evidence contradicts the "intruder theory". Was the murder scene compromised?

Discover who Dr. Wecht believes is really responsible for JonBenet's death.

Common sense

Much has been written about this tragic case but this is the most common sense version i have read according to the known facts.when you look at all the evidence,it is quite clear to me that the intruder theory is totally ridiculous. Hopefully,little jonbenet will one day get some justice.

Doesn’t add too much to the mix but decent

This is a very decent rehearsal of the case. If you are looking for an entry level book this is pretty good, covers the issues in a good amount of detail without going into the density of the magisterial Perfect Murder, Perfect Town. It more or less treads a balanced line but probably comes down on the anti-family side quite firmly. It’s perfectly fine but think real students of the case might find it a wee bit blah.

But really... who killed JonBenet Ramsey?

While I appreciate the detail with which Wecht explored the death and subsequent investigation into the case of JonBenet Ramsey, I was not a fan of this book. His insistence on referencing himself in the third person as “Dr. Cyril Wecht” every time he offered a personal insight or recollection into the case came across-at least to me-as self-indulgent. Furthermore, I expected the authors to establish a legitimate theory of their own once they discounted all other theories at the end of the book. Unfortunately when I finished listening, I was left with the title question still unanswered: who actually killed JonBenet Ramsey?

Very repetitive!

This book is the same story told over and over and over. Boring after 3 chapters

Way too much autopsy detail

The amount of detail included about JonBenet's autopsy report was inappropriate, as was including the entire report in supplemental materials.

Repetitive

I feel like the whole book could have been summed up in three chapters. Thorough, yes, but very repetitive. I had to keep checking to make sure I didn't accidentally rewind it.

New information

I was hesitant to buy the book thinking I've heard everything. In the first 5 minutes I found out things I haven't heard before.

Dry but comprehensive

This is a good, though dry, compilation of the facts. Late additions were kind of awkwardly and maybe hastily tacked on at the end, wish more time and discussion had been devoted to them. But, for those still intrigued by this tragic case, or those just getting interested, it is full of good information and informed evaluation.

Fact or fiction???

This book was very intriguing and sucked me in by the second chapter. Because the author is a known forensic pathologist, I felt that the book would reflect an accurate assessment of the crime. However, After new evidence has been released regarding this case, I have come to realize that this forensic pathologist has simply written a fictional story in hopes of garnering fame. Regardless, It's a great story.

Full picture analysis

This book was very detailed and gave all of the facts. I've done some research on the case myself and everything was very accurate and well written. Although the story is of course awful and sad, the book was great.
