The Ransom Note
What other analysts say about the Ransom Note...
Dear Mr. Baggett,
My husband ordered some of your merchandise, and we received it today.
I didn't know he had ordered it, and I find it all very fascinating.
After studying the booklet, cards, and video I logged onto your web site
and read the Ramsey ransom note. Then I studied the handwriting of both
Mr. and Mrs. Ramsey. You didn't state when in 1997 Mr. Ramsey's
signature is from, before or after the murder. I do find it Very
Interesting that after 19 years his signature is so different.
The ransom note itself is, of course, Very Interesting. The writer never
uses the name JonBenet, it is 'your daughter' throughout, as if the
writer - by not using the child's name - was trying to deny the horrible
murder committed. The note is also an angry personal attack against
John Ramsey, i.e. "Don't try to grow a brain, John". And,
places all the blame for the death of this child on John if ANYONE
messes up or makes a mistake.
Maybe John Ramsey did murder his child, but I think Patsy Ramsey wrote
the ransom note. There are a lot of little similarities between her
partial letter and the ransom note.
- The left margins are the same on each.
- The capital letters R are almost the same on each, even
though in the note it was printed and in the letter it was
used in cursive writing.
- In the ransom note on the second page the line beginning,
"If the money is in any way marked"... the a in
the word way,
and a few lines below in the word Law, the lower case a is
written differently than all the others in the note. In Mrs.
Ramsey's letter, she switches between using the cursive a and
the printed a. Her printed a is VERY similar to most of the
ones in the ransom note. And her cursive a is similar to the
two exceptions in the note as stated above.
- The printed word "be" is also very similar. And look at the
word "back" in Mrs. Ramsey's letter. The lower case b and a
are almost exactly the same as most of the ones in the ransom
- The use of the exclamation marks in both the letter and note. How many
men do you think would use exclamation marks in a ransom note?
- The use of the word "Victory!" at the end of
the ransom note.
To me, this indicates someone who is very determined to win.
Mrs. Ramsey went to great lengths and was very determined
that her daughter would win all those beauty pagents.
Thanks for giving me this chance to examine a bit of this case. It is
my true hope that the killer be caught and given the stiffest sentence
Also, I am looking forward to taking the full course for becoming a
Certified Handwriting Analyst.
"I don't think the Dad killed John Benet. Psychologically
speaking, if there is no history of abuse (and I mean abuse that
neighbors and outside family/friends know about), it is usually the
mother that kills her children and the motive is to get back at the
father of the child. Patsy Ramsey killed her daughter for and
because of the reasons you listed as being characteristics of the note writer."

I have to say that with as much detail as that letter had, I think it is
entirely possible that it was practiced for over a year. It could possibly
be Patsy's lover writing what Patsy directed him to do.
What does S.B.T.C really mean? you assume it's a sexual ritual? what if
it just meant "southern belle taking charge"? It almost looks like a
divorce note, i.e. "Give me money to start a new life".
On the word "daughter" there is a rightward maniacal ending to "ter" most
of the time suggesting a dangerously impulsive feeling toward the daughter
personally. I thought that odd for a stranger.
There seems to be sexual guilt in the sentence "you and your family are
under constant scrutiny" further adding to my theory that Patsy has a lover
and sees John as sexually incompatible ( when referring to him as "you" it
looks as if the writer perceives John as rigid, unyielding and emotionally
unavailable in the sexual area.
There is an obvious connection between money and work and confusion about
where it will come from next. I believe this was planned out. I don't
believe they meant for the child to die, but I think that when the note on
the second page starts declining, the child is now dead and
it conveys the feeling of depression and heavy weight on the writer's
That's my thoughts on it.
