SHARE Ramseys tell BBC that they aren’t guilty

The parents of JonBenet Ramsey, who have not spoken publicly in more than a year, break their silence in a documentary to be aired this week on British television, Newsweek reports in its upcoming issue.

In the interview, the Ramseys proclaim their innocence and say they are worried the killing of their daughter may never be solved."The American public has been led to believe that we went to bed that night after a wonderful Christmas, brutally beat JonBenet, sexually molested her, strangled her, went to sleep, got up the next morning, wrote a three-page ransom note, called the police, sat around the house for four hours, (and) then I went downstairs and discovered her body and was able to act distraught," John Ramsey said. "Help me understand that."

JonBenet, 6, was found beaten and strangled Dec. 26, 1996. There have been no arrests in the case, which is now in the hands of the district attorney.

Authorities have said only that the Ramseys are under suspicion in their daughter's death. The Ramseys have denied any involvement.

The Ramseys were interviewed for the documentary in their Atlanta home in mid-February, producer David Mills said.

"We were out of our minds," Patsy Ramsey said, referring to the discovery of her daughter's body. "You know, there is no rule books as to how you act when you suddenly find your child murdered in your home."

John and Patsy Ramsey have not spoken publicly since May 1997.
