I'm flat-out fucking floored by the fact that a suspect has been arrested in Thailand in the murder of child beauty-queen Jon Benet Ramsey.
Why the shock?
Because last year (as I recorded in this blog), I became slightly obsessed with the decade-old Ramsey case, after reading a wonderful book that convinced me, big-time, that the killer of the kid was her mother, Patsey Ramsey, who recently passed away from cancer.
After researching the case, pondering the evidence, weighing the probabilities, I was convinced that the mother, in a fit of rage, accidentally killed her daughter -- and that the husband then helped her cover it up.
Now, this new news shakes everything up.
I thought I was quite the amateur sleuth. I thought I'd figured it out. I thought the book was closed and that a murderer had passed away without serving justice.
Damn, I guess I don't know everything after all.
Let's just say I'll be following the upcoming developments pretty darn closely.
(And I still think she did it...)
