The book, We have your daughter:
Debuted as Number 1 on Amazon’s Murder and Mayhem
- Debuted on Kindle in the Top 25 on Murder
- Ranked in the Top 50 on Barnes and Noble
- Was one of “Seven books on Unsolved Crime that Still Haunt us” on the leading digital crime website
- Rolling Stone and Us Magazines listed “bombshells” from We have your daughter that included Boulder law enforcement leaking more than ten incorrect stories to the media in the first three weeks after the murder. The stories were published or broadcast without second checking by some media reporters.
Woodward has reviewed thousands of portions of actual Boulder police reports about the Ramsey case. She is the first author/journalist to obtain and utilize police reports.
New information since the book was published on September 27, 2016.
Two lawsuits have been filed against CBS or people related to the special four-hour television report about the JonBenét Ramsey case that aired on CBS in September 2016. That special named Burke Ramsey as the killer of his sister, JonBenét. Burke Ramsey filed the lawsuits with his attorney Lin Wood. CBS’s only response to date is: “CBS stands by the broadcast and will do so in court.” The lawsuits total $900 million dollars.
Forget everything you think you know about the unsolved murder of JonBenét Ramsey
If one could suspend time for a moment and JonBenét Ramsey hadn’t been murdered, then most times when I look at this photograph, I’m smiling back at the joy and the delight in her eyes. This happiness and innocence is what we hope for our own children.
Yet she is gone -- tortured and murdered on Christmas or the day after in 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. Her case is still unsolved twenty years later.
The title of this book…We Have Your Daughter…includes the words of the killer in the ransom note left at her home.
This book lets you consider information from the Author’s investigation of parts of thousands of Boulder police records. It lets you experience that morning through the thoughts of the police officers who were there, in their own words, by posting the portions of their reports in the book about that terrible morning she disappeared. – None of these police reports have ever been published before.
Why now? Where is the justice for a child who would be a 26-year-old woman today?
This is the first time the Ramsey family and their attorneys cooperated with an outside author. And police investigators, district attorney lawyers, others in that department and those on the periphery all talk with the Author about happened, what was right and wrong and what they still believe. It’s the first book where all sides participate.
The media was manipulated by law enforcement, deceived by calculated and incorrect leaks. The resulting headlines are quoted in this book.
The Ramsey family and their murdered child are shown with the new insight of report cards and interviews with teachers and JonBenét’s friends.
Twenty years later - newly revealed evidence
In a never-before published interview with the Author, JonBenét’s brother Burke Ramsey reveals his insights about his parents and sister. There is a stunning and confidential conclusion from Boulder Social Services, that Burke Ramsey, mentioned as a suspect for so many years, “was not a witness to JonBenét's death”. John Ramsey reveals thoughts from his private journal, written after his daughter was killed, and there is more on the potential of a stun gun as a weapon. The six handwriting experts from both sides are all in the same statistical area writing Patsy Ramsey most likely did not write the ransom note.
There is equally stunning information in the book about what was in JonBenét's stomach. The autopsy said "fragments like pineapple". When the contents were examined and the results came back more than a year later from the University of Colorado experts, the contents of JonBenét's stomach included a fruit cocktail -- pineapple, cherries, grapes and grape skins. According to one coroner familiar with the case "what you can say is that one hour before JonBenét was murdered she ate part of a fruit cocktail. There is no proof who fed it to her or what happened to the remains of it."
