Apparently he has always been a suspect. Interesting that it comes to life just a week after her brother sued a TV station.

The man who confessed is incredibly creepy but I found myself wondering if he really is the murderer or just has a twisted obsession with JonBenet and wants to be associated with the case.

^ yes, something to get his name in the news, I still think it is a family member

I thought the same thing after reading the linked article. Who knows if he actually did it.

Yep, totally agree, he is really creepy but I still believe a family member did it.

Doesn't really make sense i don't believe it either- he dropped her and that's how she died?
So beyond awful. The world is a horrible place where a little girl can suffer so horribly, most likely because of her beauty and infamy. I hate the world sometimes.

I always thought it was the brother.
Siblings arguing, pushing/shoving/grappling, someone falls down the stairs and the mum totally freaks out thinking her son is going to jail for the rest of his life for killing his sister.


Looking at that article though, it doesnt look like it,


Poor little kid.  I always felt so so sorry for her.

If the man had wanted notoriety, why wait so long to claim it?

I still think the brother and the parents tried to cover it up...

I still find it odd that their kid is missing and they didn’t search the whole house until 8 hours later, when they found her!

I can’t believe the family did it. I only watched the Netflix doco which I believe followed available facts pretty closely? And they made it clear some of the injuries were sexual. I just can’t imagine her parents, after the loss of their own daughter, doing that to the body. They could have had the exact same story without any of that. Why would they do something so horrific? Please correct me if I’m wrong about that having happened.

It would be a pretty massive coincidence that this paedophile living just a few blocks away made those claims on the very night it happened and also carried a picture of her around and yet was totally innocent?

I feel really sorry for the family. I can barely even comprehend what they went through. And if he is innocent, and there’s no reason to think otherwise, imagine going through your whole life with people thinking you killed your sister. As though the original loss wasn’t horrible enough, and the damage to the parents and family. One night when he was only a child and he will never have a normal life.

Apparently there have been other confessions including previous ones by this guy.

Good point. It does occur to me that this is second hand news from the Daily Mail. I might wait until some decent news sources get involved before I pay too much attention.

I know what you mean. It's hard to stay away from the Daily Mail. Way too tempting just to have a look and see how low they can go today.

I saw it on the news then googled, I didn't even really notice it was the daily mail. oops.

The Daily Mail is such trash - I love it 😆! It’s definitely one of my guilty pleasures.

I always thought that publicly accusing a boy who was 9 at the time of the crime, and who lost his sister, without enough proof for charges, was an epically sh*t thing to do on the behalf of the producers and various "experts."

There are some similarities between the treatment of this family and the family of Azaria Chamberlain. Media outlets latched on to things like the unusual name of the child and the whole beauty pageant thing to paint the family as something not quite "normal". It is certainly a head-scratching case. What I can't get past is the ransom note asking for the exact amount the father had received as a bonus payment from his employer. It would be nice to get a resolution so the family and their community can know the truth.

Also the ransom note being 3 pages long and they wrote a practice one. To sit in someone’s house for the time it would take to write that, to me, is odd...

I would have thought kidnappers wanted to be in and out, not messing around writing the longest random note in history, risking being caught!

And Madeleine McCaan of course. People still happily claim they just know the parents did it “because the mum didn’t seem upset enough on tv” or “I just don’t like the dad”. As though it’s not hard enough going through what they’ve been through.

I think as members of the general public we can never know all the details and how if fits together. Even with such famous cases I’m sure there’s a lot the police know that we won’t until there is (hopefully) some resolution.
