Presumed Guilty: An Investigation Into The JonBenet Ramsey Case, The Media, And The Culture Of Pornography by our pal and frequent guest, Stephen Singular, is the only book that presents a third scenario beyond the Ramseys or an intruder killing JonBenet and opens up new areas of investigation. 
Stephen was featured on a special Lifetime broadcast November 15th, and we are the first to grab him following that controversial appearance.

On the morning of December 26, 1996, JonBenet Ramsey was found murdered in the basement of her parents’ million-dollar Boulder, Colorado home. The death of the 6-year-oldbeauty queen horrified the city’s residents and immediately captured the country's interest. As throngs of reporters swarmed into Boulder, local and national networks flashed images of JonBenet — provocatively dressed in pageant outfits — acrossAmerican TV screens and around the world.
Like the talk show media, the Boulder Police Department focused its suspicions almost exclusively on John and Patsy Ramsey. Despite pressure from the police to arrest the Ramseys, the D.A.’s office, led by Alex Hunter, looked for new leads and other possible suspects. With conflict between the D.A. and the cops intensifying,the investigation gradually came to a standstill.
Expanding on the role he’d played a few years earlier in O.J. Simpson case,Singular decided to look deeper. Not content to pass judgment on the Ramseys without conclusive evidence, and convinced there was a reason the legal system was wary about prosecuting the case, he followed his own trail into the murder. It took him from the local bars to the county jail and onto shocking Internet web sites featuring images of girls the same age as JonBenet who’d been tied up and sexually tortured– for pleasure and profit. Instead of simply wanting to know who killedJonBenet Ramsey, Singular began to question what part of our culture and what kind of child exploitation may have caused her death?
His search led him into the seamy worlds of tabloid journalism, local politics,child beauty pageants, child pornography, and the big business of Internet sex just as it was taking off in cyberspace. His discovery — of a subculture that sexually used and abuses young children — motivated him to share his research with both the D.A. and the Boulder police. Presumed Guilty is his account of a journey into one of the darkest corners of American life.
